Day 54 – Sys Admin Day

So today was System Administrators Appreciation Day (yes, this is a thing – it even has a wikipedia page), and my work branch had a combined lunch. There was pizza & Subway with a can of softdrink, and cake.

The cake is a triple layer chocolate mud cake with dark chocolate ganache. The computer mouse is made of rice bubble treat, with dark chocolate ganache & fondant.

While I’ve listed my food intake for the day, I have no idea of the calories.

Subway

CAKE!

Tomorrow – Saturday. We have not one single plan, and I love it that way!

Day 53 – Thursday

Today’s highlight was attending our High Tea without partaking in the yummy foods on offer! Miss E didn’t even touch the sandwiches I got for her, and she ate most of my strawberries! I ordered my coffee, and chatted with my friends.

Poached eggs with ham & avocado toast

Mexican shepherds pie

Butter Chicken. This didn’t agree with me at all, and my tummy was quite grumbly about it. But I had heaps of cake decorating still to do, so I wanted something quick.

Tomorrow – Friday. Cake D-Day! I’m driving into work for a branch lunch at 12pm, and then there will be CAKE! I will be having one piece. I’ve worked so damn hard on this thing I’m not not having some!

Day 52 – Shattered

<<Hi…. yep it’s been a while huh. But. I’m back, and determined to continue this journey. I have a stack of draft posts that I’ll publish today. So much has happened. I’ve missed you!!!!!>>

I’ve been having so many late nights this week, it caught up with me today and I was shattered.

After catching up on the zzz’s I was able to get to a local cake store for some cakey items I needed.

I grabbed Subway (again) for lunch, as I was short on time – due to cake duty. And totally forgot to take a photo, whoops!

I could say that I needed to ‘taste test’ my ganache… but it wouldn’t be truthful. I think I chose to have some to try to stay awake. Either way I’m in dangerous territory….

Poached eggs with avocado & smoked salmon

Mexican shepherd’s pie

Tomorrow – Thursday. We’re going to a local High Tea event (red flag alert!). My plan is to take a punnet of strawberries, and order a coffee. I’ll buy a ticket, so I can get some sandwiches for Miss E. This usually gets me through. Then home to work on the cake. I had hoped to have it finished last night, but (as usual) I’ve under-estimated the time required to decorate.

Day 51 – More caking

<<This is just a quick update – back to regular blogging soon!>>

More quick & easy meal options this week. With caking temporarily taking over all my time, I’m unable to prep my lunch. This is what the backups are for!

(‘New You’ Journal)

Banana bread & coffee

Subway

Chicken Parmigiana. This is another one of my all-time favourites!! Soo tasty.

Tomorrow – Wednesday. Work, then netball at 7:20pm. Then more work on the cake!

Day 50 – Cake Central

<<This is just a quick update – back to regular blogging soon!>>

No pump today ūüė¶ I missed the class for the first time, after 6 weeks in a row. I made the decision not to go because of my workload to get my next cake finished. I planned an evening of baking, preparing ganache & molding rice bubble treats, but Miss E woke and was unconsolable unless Mummy was holding her. So I didn’t get much done in the end.

Banana bread & coffee

Subway: roast chicken on multigrain with swiss cheese & honey mustard sauce

Steak & mushroom sauce

Tomorrow – Tuesday. Work, and then dinner and then more cakey stuff! I’m attempting a few new techniques, so it’s a learning process ūüôā

After doing a sneaky peek weigh-in this morning, I’m now 200g away from achieving my new goal!!! Will I get there by¬†Wednesday morning?

Cheers

Day 49 – Red flag win!

<<This is just a quick update – back to regular blogging soon!>>

Today’s highlight was a Norwex demonstration at a friend’s place. I avoided the cheese & dips plate, and just munched on a few wholegrain rice crackers!

Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon

Steak sandwich

Nachos

Tomorrow – Monday. Work, not sure that I’ll be able to get to the gym this week, I’m going to be very busy every evening¬†preparing a custom¬†cake for a work event on Friday.

Cheers

Day 48 – Routine Saturday

<<This is just a quick update – back to regular blogging soon!>>

Saturdays just go too fast in my book! We had a late breakfast, Mr S did some grocery shopping, and I continued working on our budget. This has become a priority due to an important decision we need to make very soon.

Big Breakfast

Greek Lamb Salad. This is delicious, though I was a bit over-excited about the lamb. There may be a bit too much. Love the combination of the lamb, fetta, figs & asparagus!

Cajun Chicken

Tomorrow – Sunday. I’m going to a Norwex demonstration at a friend’s place. Haven’t seen Norwex before, so keen to hear about their products.

Cheers

Day 47 – Home Sweet Home

<<This is just a quick update – back to regular blogging soon!>>

Today was a quiet one at home. Did some washing, played with Miss E, love these days!

Had a few extras today that I couldn’t figure out the calories for.. Whoops!

(‘New You’ Journal)

Puffed cereal with strawberries

Poached eggs on vegemite toast & coffee. (plus strawberry jam on toast snack)

Thai Chicken Burger

Tomorrow – Saturday. I intend to work more on our budget. We use YNAB (the BEST budgeting software EVER!),¬†the trouble is that¬†haven’t been keeping it up to date. However they are releasing a new version soon, which has cloud sync!!! So it will be HEAPS easier to maintain, and I can’t wait!! Once the budget is current, we’ll install the new version and get it all running nicely, and then we can make some better-informed decisions.

If you’re keen to try YNAB (and I think you definitely¬†should!), you can use this link, and get it for (USD) $6 off!!

Day 46 – Mothers Group

<<This is just a quick update – back to regular blogging soon!>>

I was completely unorganised for Mothers’ Group, and couldn’t find my notes on the healthy snacks I wanted. I ended up racing to the shops to grab supplies, and served a¬†plate of strawberries & bananas, some orange poppyseed cake, some bbq crackers, and a pack of lamingtons.

I¬†didn’t get to RPM. We have a major lifestyle decision coming up, and I have to focus some time on assessing our finances and bringing them up-to-date.

(‘New You’ Journal)

Strawberry & Banana bruschetta. Had a bit of a whoopsie with the cocoa!

Taco corn thins. These were yummy, but I will cut the salsa into smaller pieces next time.

Poached eggs w avocado & smoked salmon

Tomorrow – Friday. Spending a quiet day at home.

Day 45 – Distractions

Well. Today didn’t go how I planned at all. I had to focus on planning my upcoming cakes, so I could urgently order the required ingredients/tools. As it is I don’t know if the order will arrive in time. So I didn’t get to the 10:30am Pump class, or do much of the housework. But netball was great, at the start of the game our opponents only had 4 players, but for the last half they had found some extras,¬†and were getting pushy & a bit cocky. But we kept our lead and won¬†36-27. Everyone was playing really well!

Tomorrow – Thursday. I’m hosting Mother’s Group, and then have RPM at 6pm.
