My brother came to visit us yesterday, hence the late post.
We had a great day! Before he arrived I found myself right back in the mood to binge – my same old urge that always comes back when I know I won’t be in control of the food. I did give in a little bit, but then decided to train before he got here to minimise the bingeing time, so I spent 40 mins on the elliptical walker. I wasn’t too depressed by that decision, I do like the approach of filling good bingeing time with exercise instead!!!
We tried to take him to our favourite Thai restaurant for lunch, but they were on holiday – closed till Wednesday :-(. Instead we went to an excellent Indian restaurant about a mile from our house. The food was lovely, the service was very good, we all enjoyed chatting – and although I ate more than I meant to the damage was a bit contained by us each ordering our own food rather than going for a stomach-stretching set meal, so that was good.
After lunch my brother and I walked along the railways embankment into town. By this time it was bright and sunny, though not as warm as it looked, and we really enjoyed the walk. I did a bit of shopping and we headed back feeling a lot less bloated for the exercise!
Breakfast: All bran with strawberries & raspberries
Lunch: Indian food! I forgot to photograph most of it because we were too busy talking, but I had 2 poppadoms with condiments; lamb chilli with boiled rice (below * 2),
and a portion of strawberry frozen yoghurt. My lamb was wonderful – the curry was very spicy (half a dozen green chillies in my portion that I could see) and the lamb was unbelievably tender!
Dinner: I was too stuffed to eat until late and even then struggled to decide what to eat. Dinner ended up being half a honeydew melon and a Greek yoghurt with We Are Bear granola!
Snacks: Greek yoghurt with honey and a bag of peanut butter M & Ms – these aren’t widely available, at least not in our part of Wales; I bought them in Cardiff on Saturday at a deli specialising in US imports. Yum! But not so good I would want them all the time
