Today I am feeling mighty proud of myself, it could have been a challenging day and I could have fallen off the wagon but instead I held on tight with no wobbling. It hasn't happened in a while so feels very good. The reason for the potential issue was that me and Rich were heading out to lunch and when faced with a menu of yummy things it can be hard to resist.
I had checked the menu beforehand and conferred with Mitchy over what would be good choices and I am happy with the ones I made and that I stuck to them...and didn't have pudding. I even resisted this
Yummy smelling white bread that I did want but decided it just wasn't worth it. This week I feel like I am comfortably sat on the bus and nothing is chucking me off. I have loved my food this week and the exercise and not felt deprived.
Rewinding a bit to earlier in the day I woke up a bit groggy but got myself into my trackie bottoms and woke Doug up for a walk. He was a sleepy boy this morning and as we were heading out for lunch it was a relatively short walk today.
We headed out to lunch about 12 and went to a Mezze restaurant, as I have already said I chose before hand so I wasn't tempted by the fried stuffed cheesy things that me a few weeks ago would have chosen.
Instead I had three small mezze dishes that were bigger than I expected but fab. The top bowl is a white bean cassoulet with vegetables, the left one is a puy lentil stew and the final one was roasted vegetable cous cous. They were all really gorgeous and I am comfortable that I would not have gone mad on syns.
When lunch was done we headed home via Tescos where we picked up our advent calenders ready for December and a few other bits. Once we got home I glued myself to the sofa as had planned to watch the football when it started. Doug came back from his walk and joined me
Once the game was over and I stopped scowling me and Rich settled down to Marvel Agents of Shield the Firefly. I had already thought ahead to a light dinner by preparing some soup so had this with a gorgeous cheese toastie using an A and B
It went down really well amazing how tasty a cheese toasty can be! Instead of butter I used fry light which worked well.
This evening has been a spent lazing on the sofa watching more Breaking Bad and snacking on this little plateful
Join me tomorrow for more food noms and Doug night night all xoxo
