    Hmmm, I seem to have started this challenge the way I ended the last one...

    I've not eaten too badly but I've drunk way more this week than I should've done. Wednesday's work do was bad enough but then my husband and I ended up having an accidentally drunken Saturday too. Oops!

    Oh well, +1.5lb this week and I'm off to a festival this weekend which will involve even more booze and not always the most sensible food choices.

    I really will get it under control one day...

    Best of luck to everyone for the week ahead.

    Well done Need2bthrifty, that's a great start.

    Had a good day yesterday, nice run at lunchtime, lovely salad for lunch and then pasta and bolognese for tea with a couple of biscuits after.
    Hoping to get a nice walk in at lunchtime today and maybe even one this evening.

    Hi Frith :)

    Do you want to set a target for the challenge or just play it by ear?

    Hello, Brambling.

    I’d like to lose a stone, please. I’ve lost 1 lb so far.

    Today

    B - avocado and sardines

    L - same (to use them up!)

    T - fajita left from yesterday.
    Never took piano lessons

  • Evening All,

    Not much exercise done today as I had to be out early doors to go help out a friend and cba by the time I got back.

    For my meals today, brekkie was same as yesterday, lunch was hm hummus, crispbreads, pomegranate, cucumber & radish.

    Dinner was a bit of an experiment I had a couple of beef tomatoes and bacon that needed using so I cooked the bacon blitzed it in the food processor, I scooped out and half filled the tomatoes with the bacon some sad looking spring onion, sweetcorn that was lurking in the fridge, whisked up a couple of eggs to fill them up, baked until set and voila an alternative to crust-less quiche. I only managed to eat one with some green salad and a slice of garlic bread and found it quite filling, so I'll have the other cold for lunch tomorrow or Thursday.

    I managed a STS this week. I'm going running tomorrow - I haven't been since my friend began to be really poorly. Just reducing what I eat never seems to be enough for me - I only had a significant loss once I started running. I'm going to start the couch to 5k again from the beginning to break myself in gently.

    Cranky - good luck starting your running journey again. Easy does it to start with.

    Need2bthrifty - your tomato recipe sounds lovely, what a good idea.

    I had a lovely walk yesterday lunchtime and we had a nice evening stroll too as it was such a lovely evening. We even saw a very cute little hedgehog on our way back home.

    Hoping for a run again at lunchtime today, although it'll be a warm one!

    Looks like you've reset your weight after the London trip Cranky :) I've never been a runner I've always said I'm built for comfort and not speed and would require an industrial sport bra :rotfl: (sorry if TMI) a friend of mine is a keen runner and has done quite a few marathons well into her 60s. She tells me the local running club she's involved with does a learn to run 10 week course which I assume is probably similar to the couch to 5k so far I've turned a deaf ear to any suggestions or doing it. I'm happy to walk and regularly walk up 8 - 10 miles with my sister.

    I love hedgehogs S_glover one of my sisters feeds them, they come up to her patio every night and she watches throught the patio doors, she has a small holding and they nest in her hay shed so she gets the babies as well. She will tell you to go away if you phone at feeding time :D

    Weigh in later and I'm hoping for a lost this week
