If you don't want to join the Summer Bootcamp, that's fine, but I thought it best that we only have one thread on the go at any one time - if the next Bootcamp is anything like this one, the first two weeks will be pretty full on and there will be so many threads going (chat/weigh-in, Q&A and recipes) that I didn't want to over-clutter the boards!
AuntieMaggie how long will you be there for? Will you be in your own car? If you are, I'd look at taking a coolbox/bag with me, and taking stuff like hard boiled eggs, packets of cooked ham/fish, etc. Also, check out local supermarkets to see if they have a rotisserie section. Although a lot of them now insist on doing all their chicken with some kind of flavouring on it, if you can get one that just plain, it makes a lovely low carb lunch, along with a bag of salad. (Take a bottle of your own vinaigrette to use with it)
I'm off to Peterborough in a few weeks though will be visiting different sites in the area. I've checked out the work canteens and they don't have any/much low carb options. So given that I'll probably be stuck in the office during lunch what can I do?
Day 1 of ubercamp today. Just enjoyed my omelette (minus the mushrooms horrible things ) and sitting with a cup of rooibos (no milk of course ).
Tried "the dress" on last night. It was better than last week in that I didn't have to hoik my boobs up into the buxom wench effect in order to do the buttons up, but they were still under a bit too much strain and gaping very slightly.
I generally don't eat breakfast these days, Heir, so can happily forego croissants/pain au chocolate/baguette. A cup of coffee is enough for me.
I usually find that French restaurants are just as easy to eat in as English ones, (always assuming that you're avoiding fast food outlets!). Steak and salad (no frites, obviously) is a great choice. And all that yummy cheese, of course!
Hi all, have been THOROUGHLY off plan on a surprise hen weekend with my lovely friend - she is very pregnant and unable to come on the proper one, so whisked me off for a wonderful day out that featured pancakes, then a trip to the Harry Potter studios (Butterbeer is NOT LC I fear ) then the most delicious meal out where I had toast with my pate and a whole pudding... Not even weighing myself til next Monday but I had a brilliant time! Back on it today - greek yog this morning then just scarfed down a big salad with avocado and some very garlicky salami. We're going to France for a few days on Thursday so looking forward to masses of cheese and pate and steak and wine Back on Monday just in time for bootcamp!
jake my car is broke too, total nightmare. How can just breaking sharply break an engine?
re your ds, I have tried so many things for my carb loving ds1 - he just likes shit in a box (although we only have puffed wheat - no salt/no suger/ no taste) - but he will eat sausages until the cows come home. We have mostly cut out pasta too but it is really difficult to find LC things he will eat. EG I made lovely pork belly for lunch yesterday, lots of lovely cracking - served with rice for the kids and cauli cheese & buttered cabbage. Ds1 ate the rice then had about 8 jam tarts that we made that morning cos he was hungry in the afternoon.
I cant wait for bootcamp - I am going to really try to cut out sweetener in my tea. That is my mission.
