I’m still not working with all my brain cells. Doing the online shopping tonight I actually ordered reduced fat cheese. Fortunately I realised my error before pressing the button. Reduced fat cheese – you might as well go the whole way and just make a lettuce sandwich.
Apart from that, nothing much happened. I started some research which will hopefully bear fruit in a post next week, packed ten parcels, loaded several lots on eBay and went home.
Julia had bought sausage rolls on the way home and despite my diet I was, I admit, happy to see them.
The diet is up and down at the moment. I have been eating a bit too much recently but am currently trying to cut back. It is just after eleven pm as I write this and I am hungry. This is probably a good sign.
I had a large bowl of vegetable stew for tea, with three dumplings balanced on top. Julia has not, if I’m honest, taken the concept of portion control on board. No dessert. I only had one biscuit with my evening drink. Only one sandwich for lunch. An apple. An orange thing of indeterminate parentage. Breakfast was two own brand wheat biscuits with half a banana and some blueberries.
Yes, I admit that it’s hardly a starvation diet, but it lacks the two slices of toast and marmalade, a sandwich, and pudding, as well as the cake, biscuits and chocolate that always seemed to crop up.
That’s where you score with online shopping – no impulse buys, no sudden urge to eat a pork pie just because they look nice in the chiller . . .
It is a triumph to be feeling hungry. The tricky thing is not to notice it.
Moderation is the key. It does sound like you are doing well.
I feel now is the time to show a bit more self discipline after letting things slide.
I am not an impulse shopper. Though there are times I’d like to open the cabinet and see something tasty
I’m a recovering impulse shopper. 🙂
It looks as if you are doing well
The jury is still out . . .
I have recently, two months ago, stopped eating gluten products and I feel a lot better. I don’t like to shout it too loudly because I have always been a critical cynic about people with food allergies. I am learning to bite my tongue.
It’s a tricky area. Some people definitely benefit from going gluten free, others just like to jump on the bandwagon. I had experience of both types when we used to bake on the farm. My suggestion – if it works for you stay gluten-free, but stay cycnical too! 😉
It’s a good sign that your appetite is coming back.
Yes, I suppose so . . . 🙁
Going to bed hungry is a bit miserable but eating during the evening is not particularly good for the diet. Dieting is never easy.
