Hi everyone,

Well after a marathon sleeping session (730pm-7am) last night (I snore apparently - who knew?) I'm feeling just the same and am now deaf in one ear - what? speak up?

Food today:

B - micro cinamon porridge
L - tin of mandarins, 2 x ww wm toast, phili light
D - probably some chicken, pots and veg
E - 2 mile walk to school in the snow/slush, walked our dog, painted dining room

Bonus of being under the weather, nothing tastes nice

Hi again!!

I have done 'The Shred' again today so an 1/2 hour to add to my total Thats the good

The bad:

I have eaten- 1 lemon sherbet sweet, 1 celebration choc and a Mr K*pling mince pie which was yuck AND 250 calories!!!!!!

Im also going to add 1/2 tin of beans to my tea- it takes me over on MFP but I think 1200 calories is far too few anyway!

Hello all! I haven't dropped off the planet just been really busy with visitors and work.
As a result food hasn't been fabulous but could have been a lot worse. I have managed a 4 k walk every day since Saturday so all is not lost.
Need to make a bigger effort though - its the Xmas do on the 14th and I want the new frock to look and feel fab.
No more nibbling!

Hi everyone,

Still eating food 'for the sake of it' as can't taste anything

B - toasted teacake, tea (at coffee shop as meeting MIL for Christmas shopping trip)
L - sushi snack pack, bag of cheese curls, 2 x mini cheese and onion rolls
D - hm shepherds pie, brussels
E - walking around Bluewater

Did stop for a coffee with MIL and got a choc brownie. It was yuck, only managed two mouthfuls - probably just as well. Weigh day tomorrow. Think I will be very lucky to get away with a STS tbh.

Haven’t been on for a few days so just caught up with all the posts, I’ve been going through another “indulge my cravings phase” and will admit to scoffing some onion bhajia’s, a creamy chilli dip, nibbles, the odd glass of wine then finally topped it off yesterday meeting friends at an Italian restaurant and had chicken in a creamy gorgonzola sauce .

I seem to have gotten away with it though……luckily have STS this week, but I would guess the scales may differ to morrow.

doesn’t sound weird at all…..to me that’s good old Nursery grub, but we called it Cowboy Pie using either sausages or corned beef…..yummy.
