Second Course Weigh In : Week Six

It has been a Weekus Orribilus here and I confess that I had an ‘Off Day’ on Friday, this being Off the Plan, Off fruit and veg, and sensible eating habits were Off the menu.
sw quote 2In truth, my mind was on other things and playing scrabble in the evening, I was constantly snacking, so I am fully expecting a gain this week through no-one’s fault but my own.

The price of fruit is rocketing in the shops, and that which is sensibly priced is either smaller or of lesser quality. Salad stuff is also on the slime decline, and so I’m looking for alternatives rather than buy produce that I’m only going to throw away the day after it’s been opened. The problem is it’s a balancing act on cost, and I’ll have to get my thinking cap on to make the budget stretch and feed us for the week.
It’s becoming the norm for stews and rabbit snares to be mentioned in the same sentence.

Typically, when I didn’t want it, pork mince was only a pound a pack, but when I decided to do a pork chilli, it was nowhere to be found on the shelf.
We opted for chicken again as at least the price is stable. We’d already had curry, so it was the turn of a sweet and sour, and with the addition of peppers, it made a tasty dinner packed with speed food rather than having it on the side.
sweet-and-sour-chickenWith the colder weather, we’ll need more fuel (aka food) but to be honest, my heart’s not in it just now, and I feel I am just going through the motions.
Inches (or centimeters to be more accurate) are reducing though as my rings keep sliding off, my watch is spinning on my wrist and my trousers keep slipping, even when I’m not breathing in!!
Looking at my legs getting out of bed one morning, the calf and thigh muscles seem more defined, so my body shape is changing again as it tones up. If nothing else, at least I am still getting plenty of walks in. I’ve walked about 16 miles this week.

So, how did I do?
Sad or Glad? Grief or Relief? Hang my head, or bang on the drum of success?

Hopefully I will get my act and head together and have a better loss next week, but for now, I’m pleased with the one I had.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    30lbs!!!! When was the last time you picked up 30lbs? Perhaps you could try it, and get a perspective on what you have lost! Well done!

  2. Good girl! You didn’t let one bad day ruin the whole week!

  3. A day off and still a loss? That’s a definite win!
