Today is Saturday 8th January

Well at least it’s not white outside. We’ve had rain through the night so it’s quite mild, but extremely wet underfoot and still raining. Won’t be going for a walk just yet then.

We’ve put some washing on as we can get it dry indoors, but other than that, there’s not a lot on our agenda today.
Hubby intends to put a shelf up under the dart board to put our hats and gloves on instead of cluttering up the radiator. The first coat of varnish dried almost red so had to be stripped and he gave it a coat of clear varnish yesterday. That has dried beautifully so has had its second coat this morning.

I’m pleased with my efforts this week as depicted in the previous post. This time last week I was out of my set parameters, so glad to have pulled it back by weigh in on Sunday. I’m hoping to be smack on target tomorrow, but if I’m not, at least I’ve had a good loss this week.
Breakfast this morning was porridge with strawberries and blueberries. I had been adding sugar so that has now been kicked into touch and replaced with soft fruit.
I bought mangoes, pineapple, strawberries, and blueberries at discounted prices yesterday so can do myself a smoothie for my final snack rather than a fruit salad as I have been. It’s the same syn value of 1 for the yogurt, but as I won’t have the granola on top, that will save me two syns. Wow! That’s almost a gingernut LOL!!

Lunch is going to be tuna fish cakes and baked beans, nice and simple, and I’ll add some cherry tomatoes to my plate. It’s filling and the only syns will be for any oil I use in the frying pan.

Hope your weekend is off to a good start. Take care and as always, keep safe everyone.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Congrats on getting back in target! If there is one thing Sparky hates to do, it is hanging shelves…

  2. I enjoy reading about your day. To get back on track is tough. I like your food substitutions. Weight loss fell in importance on my 2022 to do list. Congrats on your start. πŸ™‚

    Not a good start to my weekend but it improved as my SoCs shows and I am so proud of you doing so well with your dietπŸ’œ

  4. The day here was overcast and damp. I had a leisurely day of not doing much of anything. Good for you for sticking with your diet.
