Clean Eating: Slimming World - Food Diary - Day 33

33

This week I'm clean eating whilst following the Slimming World 'SP' Plan*: this allows me loads of S & P foods, plus 1 Healthy Extra A choice and 2 Healthy Extra B Choices and of course, the usual 5-15 syns daily.

Today, I've decided that I'm pretty crappy with computers. I've decided to download a new browser as the current one keeps lagging and the flash keeps crashing - and no amount of cache clearing or updating seems to work, I've given up I can't understand what it needs to work properly.....so I've got this new browser....only trouble is, it's being glitchy with my html - we'll see!
So today is the day before I weigh-in, and I can honestly say that I feel so much slimmer this past week, I feel like the inches are finally disappearing ( horahhh!)  - and I've had one or two people comment that I've lost weight the past couple of days.....so it must be true right? 

As I said yesterday, I'm not feeling especially hungry right now.....I mean, I'm eating my meals - mostly - but I've not been too concerned with anything inbetween....which is fine of course.....but this leaves me uninterested in food, and very impartial to cooking for everyone in the evenings. I'm also feeling kinda bored with my modest repertoire of SP/Clean meals. I need to rediscover some passion for some good-old-fashion recipe searching on the interweb; but I can't quite muster - or supress the right balance of....erm......focus, maybe? Yep - that!
.....it'll happen, just not today!


So anyway, moving swiftly on to what I ate yesterday!

Looking at my food diary yesterday.....I can see I totally didn't eat enough, it seems that every now and then I go through phases like this - in a few days time I'll be desperately trying to stop myself from eating half of the fridge - seriously, it'll happen it ALWAYS does!

I've also been so busy and I guess I don't think about food as much when I'm busy........Tomorrow, I'm working all day, so it could go one of two ways depending upon how busy we are!  
Had a lovely evening though catching up with my friend - and enjoyed a tasty glass of red :)

Good Evening, it is pretty late.......like 2.34am and I've just said goodbye to one of my good friends after a very welcome visit before she heads back to London again. Today has been erratic to say the least; completing shop orders all day, then bootcamp and a quick shower -  I've had no time for dinner today at all.  Lucky for me that I don't feel especially hungry right now.....I dare say that I'll be ravenous tomorrow then!

Evening all........well, what a weekend huh? If you live anywhere near me down in good ole Suffolk then you'll understand the sarcasm in that previous question, right?!  I had a few plans for the weekend, most involved leaving the house of course, doing fun family things.......taking the girlies for a picnic, going for a drive or just getting in the garden - failing that, I could get some washing done! Nope, not going to happen.......it has rained non-stop for a few days now and I'm seriously debating on whether or not I should start building that ark? Now that the school holidays have arrived, the last thing we want to be is trapped inside watching endless films like a bunch of lazy lay-abouts! 
I'm crossing my fingers for ok weather tomorrow - please - LET THERE BE LIGHT!!! I'm not a grouchy moany cow - well sometimes perhaps......I'm just going stir crazy here - it might be the cabin fever setting in ;)
