I had to go to group tonight as I haven’t been for a fortnight.
I was not looking forward to it.
It’s difficult trying to have sensible meals with a third of your plate as speed food when you are in the passenger or driving seat of a car for 15 hours at a stretch.
I have made a conscious effort this week to get back on track, and I suppose I have had some success as my gain this week was not as bad as it could have been.
A pound and a half up on my last weigh in three Tuesdays ago averages out at eight ounces a week. Hardly worth crying about, and believe me, I am dry-eyed.
Things are not going to settle down until my life does.
Once again, I am trying to do the best I can with the cards I’ve been dealt, but yesterday I ate too much bread and too many biscuits.
But was that better than having a McDs or a fish and chip supper?
Hm. Calorie wise probably. Health wise, probably not.
Balance, variety and sensibility sometimes do not go hand to mouth, but I’m trying. I’ve had a lot of fruit this week, just not the veg.
So, proper dinner tonight, spaghetti bolognese from scratch, which was totally free, onions and tomatoes being my speed foods.
Dessert was black forest fruits with 2 meringue nests, so clock up 5 syns for those, speed fruit being the blackberries and blackcurrants, free fruit being grapes and cherries.
I snacked on a nectarine (speed food), and breakfast was my cereal with dried apricots as I’d run out of raspberries. I had to syn those (6) as they were dried.
Tomorrow, our main meal is going to be gammon with plenty of veg and a jacket potato.
That should tick all the boxes as it’s all free and mostly speedy.
