Bloody hell it's been hot today.

I went for a lunchtime walk but I felt guilty afterwards as I was back in the office today and I did get a bit sweaty. We probably walked a little fast for such a warm day, especially as I was wearing jeans rather than dressing for the weather.
I was feeling really down this morning - a combination of the never ending back ache, the (predictably) horrible morning weigh in, and just not being rich enough or thin enough. {Miraculously I didn't console myself with the box of 24 peanut butter kit kats one of my colleagues brought in and placed on a nearby desk in full view of me.  In fact I didn't eat any of them, or the biscuits someone else brought in... Honestly, the humble office is kind of a mine field some days)  Even though it was too hot, my walk did help cheer me up a bit and the afternoon was less miserable as a result. After work I tried to take another walk but it was just too hot to enjoy - it was about 31 degrees, and my preference is low to mid 20s... I nearly melted in the kitchen as I had foolishly planned a meal that included homemade oven chips for M on the hottest day of the year so far...
M and I were a pair of old crocks this evening. He had a sore and stiff neck and I of course was still feeling sorry for myself re the back...

Food today:
Breakfast: scrambled eggs
Lunch: homemade cream of broccoli soup
Dinner: Low carb Korean bbq chicken with grilled broccoli and green beans (plus one glass of red wine)
Snacks: hard boiled egg, homemade lamb sausage


  1. It was a very hot day wasn't it? I gether today is supposed to be even hotter so take care and maybe stay out of the sun?
    Sorry the back is still so painful.

  2. Perhaps walking upright was not such a good idea as our back are really not designed for it. I have been through the back thing and so have lots of empathy I have learned now the minute my back complains I abandon what I am doing and touch wood I have not had a really bad recurrence.
