Thanks Ghouloshes
Great new name Milly and yummy food for you yesterday.

Yesterday I had shreddies for breakfast, instant pad Thai a d a yogurt ad piece of rubbishy asda birthday cake for lunch and chocolate coated raisins and a yogurt for dinner. Snacks: 1 glass wine, 1 bag of walkers whole grain crisp things, a spoonful (almost) of chocolate brownie mix blush

Today I am fasting and have had black coffee and white coffee. I. Plan to have soup for supper. I thought I was going to given and eat earlier but ok now, just kept busy.
Off to make another cake. (honestly, there is no end to this)
Onwards and downwards FRs.

I can't think of a scary name for Halloween! <plaintive> What is scary, however, is how much I've spent on 2 pairs of boots in the last couple of days. Erm. A lot. one pair black leather knee boots (last year's style, from Clarkes, so a bit reduced.) lovely but fairly plain. One pair of wine-red suede Diesel ankle boots from TK Maxx. They are so beautiful they don't belong on the ground! I can't afford any more shoes until hell freezes over... new year next month at least.

Failed at my fasting day yesterday. DD simply would not eat an unfamiliar thing, (chicken salad sandwich from Greggs) in an unfamiliar place, when she could see I wasn't eating as well. So I had to 'encourage her' by having a couple of mouthfuls. But, I have discovered she will eat lettuce if it's got mayonnaise on! And I fasted today so it wasn't a big problem actually.

I really want to get below 9 stone. <determined> grr.


MillyMillyMe Wed 16-Oct-13 23:41:16

You can do it Lego
I want to lose a stone but its not happening. I can maintain which im glad about and don't gain but would like to see the scales go downward. Im going to have to listen to my PM Cd and re read the rules and do them more mindfully.
piece of toast with salty butter and Bon M Jam
homebaked ham in maple and coke with leaves, grapes, cheese and mayo
braised beef in wine with veg and Tesco finest horseradish (love that stuff)
3 M&S biscuits
3 mini Cadbury chocolate bars

BloodiedGhouloshes Thu 17-Oct-13 02:25:16

Morning all. Can't sleep. The boots both sound really lovely, Lego. I can never find boots to fit me. I have fairly slim thighs, but large calves and the zips never go up!

In the end I could not be bothered to cook dinner for myself so made the Dcs theirs and ate tinned spaghetti on hot buttery toast. Mmmm.

Must be a better revolutionary today!!!!

Onwards and Downwards Fellow Revolutionaries!

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Thu 17-Oct-13 06:47:39

Morning FRs

Legowell done on your fast. And your boots. They sound fab. I really really want a pair of plain, flat knee night boots so will be twisting DH's arm for that purchase. You will drop the weight. You're doing so well.

LeGhostCalles-Trappes??? It's tenuous, it's clumsy, but after turning Lego into LeGhost I felt I needed to use the French for caltrops. Ok, it's early and I've been up through the night with a teething, feeding baby.

Milly I am craving beef and horseradish now grin

Nothing wrong with spaghetti on toast Ghouloshes <hungry now>

Hazelbrowneyes Thu 17-Oct-13 08:16:26

Yesterday I had:
B - croissant AND pain au chocolat
L - Brie & bread
D - 1/2 pizza
S - half a bar of Lindt sea salt & a bottle of wine

Drank half a bottle of the wine whilst the speedboat was anchored near the beach & the other half sat on the yacht watching the sun go down. I do not want to go home. It's beautiful here.

Other food I've scoffed since Saturday:
Meringue (for breakfast)
Lots of pain au chocolat
Lots of croissants
Lots of chocolate
Lots of cheese
Lots of bread
Reasonable amount of pizza
Ham & mozzarella salad
1.5 of the sharing bags of crisps

Off to Antibes today to talk to the captain of a yacht. DHs ex girlfriend lives in Antibes and seeing as I've already bumped into her once this year, I'm taking no chances so need to look fabulous...I'd better get cracking!

MillyMillyMe Thu 17-Oct-13 22:27:05

Hazelbrowneyes Fri 18-Oct-13 10:44:08

Ah Milly, not that brave! Didn't purposefully go to meet her, she just works & lives here (lucky cow) and as we work in the same industry, there is always a chance we'll bump into her. Luckily we didn't!

Yesterday's food:
B - pain au chocolat (just one!)
L - cheese, meats, bread
D - spinach & ricotta tortellini
S - shocking number of biscuits, loads of olives & a reasonable amount of wine.

Last full day down here today. Feeling a bit blue to be honest, it's lovely here, the weather has been fab & I need another week. Although I've been the Mosquitos favourite evening snack so I won't miss that grin

I have a cold, caught it from DD. Feel dreadful. Have spent the last day eating biscuits as I CBA to cook. We had chicken tikka last night, made by DH. Was lovely but I didn't eat much as couldn't taste it really. On the plus side, I usually lose weight when I'm not well as I lose my appetite. Every cloud!

DD has recently started talking. She has just learnt the word 'no'. 'tis a bad day when your child learns they can defy you... grin

MillyMillyMe Mon 21-Oct-13 11:48:06

Haha. Lego poor you....what a word to say first eh!!

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Mon 21-Oct-13 12:12:05

I am snacking like a fat toddler at a birthday party.
Should have fasted today. Feel miserable now.
Be back when I can speak with more smugness.

LegoCaltrops Mon 21-Oct-13 13:12:23

It's ok Amanda. In the last 2 days I've eaten: Chicken Tikka & salad (homemade by DH), sandwich made with the leftovers (healthy but on white bread which will play havoc with my IBS later), Nesquik chocolate milk, & at least a pack of chocolate Hobnobs quite a few chocolate biscuits. And a yoghurt.

Not gone to work as a) I feel crap, & b) DH hernia playing up, also due to his cold, so he can't look after DD this afternoon. He is getting it fixed next week though, cross fingers the hospital don't cancel the operation again. Was supposed to be last week. He is getting worse, I'll be furious if they do cancel it again.

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Mon 21-Oct-13 13:19:22

Poor lego I wish you lived closer then you leave dd here in the "crèche" and you could get all better.

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Mon 21-Oct-13 13:21:34

Nice, quieter than here, good to bring up DCs.
