  1. June 17th

    I woke this morning after a lovely long sleep. It being Father's Day DDs had bought their dad biscuits and chocolates that were duly opened at breakfast. I abstained and ate my bacon and egg & NLY instead. We didn't have lunch but instead went for a walk - DDs didn't join us, I suppose presents and a card are more than I should expect given how things have been lately. Anyway we ended up at bar / restaurant. It's a nice place with live music at the weekends. We had intended to have a coffee ...

  2. Christelle's trials and tribulations (*warning, quite a rant!)

    I am feeling quite frustrated today. And it has nothing to do with me or the food choices I have made. It is my SiL. Some will remember she wanted to start THD a while ago and that she actually started. It didn't last long and she fell back to her old ways. Now, everytime she sees me she comes up with a different excuse as to why she cannot do it. About a month ago, it was because they do not earn enough for her to eat this way. It is too expensive (not thinking how much the medical bills cost). ...

  3. Passion Leads to Purpose

    The gorgeous man, who does my garden and dug me a pond (...and saved my dogs from a kidnapper - but thats another story) is not working at the moment. I have been watching the garden 'go triffid' and started trying to find someone to cut it back but felt quite lacklustre at having to go through the quotes process and the air being sucked through teeth.

    I mentioned it to my neighbour and he said something quite outrageous. He said; 'why don't you do it'. What mad fool would do that!! ...

  4. June 16th

    So yesterday was a complete success on the food front. I started with egg and bacon for breakfast. We then headed out for our celebratory lunch at a French restaurant we know. I had oysters to start, steak and salad and a cheese board. Perfect. The only problem was that I had too much wine and ended up feeling pretty ropey - my alcohol tolerance levels have definitely fallen.

    On waking today I still didn't feel great so breakfast was a small piece of cheese and some sparkling ...

  5. Back on the wagon again

    I have decided that I am not allowed into a Supermarket for the next few months! All my shopping will be done online. I am also going to start mindfulness again to try and stop mindlessly buying cr*p. I know that when I am at home I don't fancy cake/chocolate but as soon as I step inside a supermarket I can't resist buying it and then of course eating it. It's as though some sort of wall appears in my brain which keeps out any rational thoughts. So, I am putting a ban on all supermarkets until ...
