Hot spice is meant to be excellent for speeding up metabolism (is that spelt right!!??!!)

I'm being very tempted by lots of sweet and/or unhealthy things today! There are some cakes in the office and things keep popping up on FB that are making me want Percy Pigs or some other sweet and I got an email from Domino's Pizza for a BOGOF deal.

Luckily I have brought lunch into work today so I don't need to go up to the cafe and be tempted. I would really like a healthy idea for dinner tonight though as I cannot think of anything. I need to go to the supermarket anyway as I need to get some more fruit but I don't want to end up wondering round asda and just picking up a pizza because I can't think of anything else and it is quick and easy!

ETA Bodshi... after reading your diary I think I might have salmon!

Bit late now but one of my (dieting) friends says she could eat this for every meal: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1565/spicy-salmon-and-lentils

Have had a mainly liquid intake day up to now as teaching throughout the day and lots of walking around for exercise.

Had 1/2 slice of toast and 'buttery' spread with tea and probiotic yogurt drink for breakfast.

Lunch and snacks between lessons more tea and naughty biscuits ( I buy a packet a week, once eaten thats it until next week !!)

Supper now in preparation, steak burger and salad followed by strawberries and Cornish clotted cream icecream...naughty but you don't really want more than a scoop of it!!

Again slept about 8 hours and woke up feeling enthusastic about the day!!!

Just had two large glasses of wine to add to the day!!

Wednesday:

Breakfast: bowl of golden nuggets

Lunch: 2 cheese and pickle sandwiches

Tea: pasta with tomato sauce and cheese on top.

Not the healthiest of days but no snacking though mainly because Sophie seems to be having a growth spurt and wants to feed feed feed so I'm stuck on the sofa and trying to do work at the same time then rushing up to yard to sort horses and meet saddler.

Drinks wise: one cup of tea, one can of fanta, some lemonade...again not the healthiest!

Sleep last night: slept well but Sophie woke and extra time due to this growth spurt, so perhaps a bit more tired today I suppose.

Forgot to do yesterday... soz

Weds

B: strawberries, natural yoghurt and 1oz of muesli, cup of hot water and freshly-squeezed lemon

L: Scrambled eggs on wholemeal toast and another yoghurt, green tea

T: Chicken curry with cauliflower rice and salad. Couple of poppadoms and yet another yoghurt

Treats (syns) 2 ice pops and some Rainbow drops for my sweet tooth again

Slept well but I've been feeling wiped out lately. Had an awful run yesterday, very heavy-legged. I'm menopausal so my cycles are intermittent yet "Mother Nature" decided to visit for the first time since February so that will explain the low stomach gripes and back-ache and the general "meh" feeling I've been having.

Weds 26th June.

Breakfast: 3 rivittas with a tiny bit of cheese and onion. One apple.

Lunch: White crusty roll with cheese and onion (again!) followed by a handful of grapes.

Dinner: Oven baked cod, oven chips and peas. Probably ate too many chips!

Am thinking of preparing a small portion of popcorn to watch The Apprentice with.

Sleep: Had about 7 hours. My 3 year old woke me up twice so was broken sleep.

Exercise: 2 mile slow school run. 5 hours of chasing my 3 year old around a farm park. Was hard work! Mowed the lawn after the school run. Rode Ben for a gentle 40 minute walk and trot hack around the fields.

Mood: Tired! I felt seriously tired at about 1pm and this is when I typically have a biscuit or chocolate to perk me up. I didn't do that today but had to fight through the tiredness.

Wednesday

Breakfast: oat granola with greek yogurt with honey and a small handfull of raspberries and blueberries (this is current favourite!)
Lunch: cheese sandwich (2 slices of white bread, 2 slices of mild cheddar cheese, cucumber and a teaspoon of branston pickle)
Snack: mango Activia yogurt
Dinner: chicken breast and homemade sweet potato and lentil dahl (http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/96608/sweet-potato-spinach-and-lentil-dahl) and 6 garlic and herb doughballs from asda
Drinks: about 500mls diluting juice and 150mls innocent tropical juice will probably have some more diluting juice before I go to bed

The lentil dahl was really, really yummy and I still have some left over for tomorrow's dinner! I just couldn't think of anything healthy for dinner so had a look on bbc good food and found the dahl and quite a few other recipes (didn't see the salmon squidsin but that has been added to my list!) that I want to try out! Honestly BBCGoodFood is now my favourite website (after NR of course:yellowcarded:).

Exercise: about 50min of schooling (walk warm up and cool down about 10min) mainly in trot with bits of walk and canter, 30min poo picking.

Weather: sunny and reasonably warm

Mood: happy (but bored at work... we are far too quiet just now)

Sleep: about 6-7 hours. apparently I wasn't snoring or anything:tongue:

I have to say, looking at what some of you eat, I could never survive on that! It looks like I am eating a lot in comparison but when I put it into MFP the calories are within my "allowance" with exercise. I'm trying to get my 5 a day and so far it's not actually been too hard so overall I'm pleased! (and I managed to resist some serious temptation today with the cakes in the office and now my OH is sitting beside me eating a large bar of dairy milk):angel:

Haha yes I am getting that feeling too! Even when I was at college and had a more sedentary lifestyle I wouldn't have survived on so little - how people stay on their feet (literally) without at least one square meal a day I will never know!

I am glad I'm not the only one! I was just starting to think I was really greedy!

Dinner: chicken breast and homemade sweet potato and lentil dahl (http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/96608/sweet-potato-spinach-and-lentil-dahl)

OMG, that looks gorgeous. Have just bought some lentils and sweet potato, just need the spinach.

Wednesday

Breakfast - 2 poached egg butties

Lunch - Seed bar, blueberries, banana

So much black coffee and fennel tea I could barely make my 1 1/2 hour journey home from work ... it's an age thing.

Home from work snack - 3 chocolate covered rice cakes, handful of almonds, apple

Dinner - home made and dressed salad with piri piri chicken (Tesco cooked meat), hard boiled eggs and Tesco finest coleslaw - Tesco delivered my shopping tonight. Small glass of wine to take away the pain of ironing.

Snack - 3 more chocolate covered rice cakes, grapes.

Exercise - brisk walk from car park to work and back, short relaxing hack tonight.

Sleep - about 6 hours but only woken up twice by hot flushes. Mood - good.

My diary is really boring - but I'm finding it very informative to look back and see what I've actually eaten, never done this before!

It is lovely. I doubled the quantities so I've got enough for me and OH tomorrow. I also put a bit of garlic in and totally forgot to add the spinach at the end! Anyway it is really easy to make, tastes good and is filling :biggrin:

ETA I actually used a tin of chopped tomatoes instead of fresh and it was still good :wink:

Trews' Thursday menu

Breakie - coffee and bacon roll
Lunch - coffee and flatbread with wafer thin turkey
Evening meal - weak lager and fries to go with quarter pounders on baps
Lots of water inbetween all of this!

Hoping to ride (if I ever get home) and do a walk. I've over chipottled so got a bit of a dodgy tummy. Just hope it holds out as I'm sat here in the truck waiting for OH with no hope of a loo in sight!! lol
