Had a pretty lazy day at home today, didn’t get much done at all. I have visions of one day becoming a domestic diva with regular cleaning routines and a house that’s constantly semi-clean and ready for guests… But today is not that day unfortunately! Tomorrow perhaps 🙂
I had a bit of a blow-out at breakfast, it totalled 439 cals!!! Whooops. It was more like brunch though, and I’m still under my 1200 limit. So… why did I have a blow-out? Can I blame the toaster? It seems to only produce successful toast if there are 2 pieces… it’s old and temperamental. Place a single slice on either side, and it’s sure to be burnt. Place 2 slices, and they toast nicely. So I tried to make just 1 piece of toast for Miss E, and burnt 2 pieces (tried twice using alternate sides of the toaster), before I gave up and then put 2 slices in. I could have perservered, I could have sat in front of the toaster and eyeballed it to ensure perfect toast, or I didn’t have to eat the 2nd piece of toast either. But it’s all good, I’m within my calorie limit, it isn’t the end of the world!! But I do think we need a new toaster 🙂
Toast w cream cheese & coffee
Roast beef, avocado & cottage cheese wrap
Cheese & crackers
Pan-fried fish w ratatouille & basil. This is one we probably won’t have again. Mr S didn’t really like it, and I couldn’t taste anything! Only a slight fish flavour.
Tomorrow – Friday. Potential red flag event, I’m going to a documentary screening on birth choices, where they will be offering light refreshments. It starts at 6pm, I don’t know when it finishes. I think I will have my dinner meal at lunch, and the lunch meal as an early dinner around 5pm, and take some healthy snacks with me. I can have the dessert when I get home. If they offer any drinks, I will have a vodka lime & soda, and include the calories in my allowance. Or I could skip snacks, and have my treat meal tomorrow instead of Sat. Mmmmm, what to do.. Although that would be difficult seeing as I have no idea what they will be serving.
Fridays are also our library day, we either go to Rhyme Time, or just to have a play & return/borrow more books. As a child I LOVED reading, and often spent hours at the library. I was even known to read using a torch or crack of light from a door ajar, moving the book from side to side, after I was supposed to be in bed asleep! I would like to share my love of reading with Miss E, and so far she loves reading and going to the library. Sometimes I will peek in her room and see her sitting in her reading area (a rug & pile of cushions beside the bookcase), reading & talking to herself! ❤ We read books together every night before bed, and she even has a little library card that we stamp each time we visit!
I’m enjoying the results of drinking more water already, after only 4 days of increased intake. Apart from having to go to the toilet more frequently, which is not so great during the night. But I can feel a difference in my skin! It just feels more supple..? I notice it on the backs of my hands. Anyway, who knows! Thumbs up for drinking more water!
Looking forward to catching up with some lovely 12WBT ladies on Saturday afternoon 🙂
Hope your week is going super, and you are in good health!
