    Oh dear, some silly woman (a low carb nutritionalist of high reputation) made some wittery comment that i read today. She eats 70 % choc and 'its OK cos half the carbs are fibre'

    :banghead::banghead::banghead: So, OF COURSE that gave me carte blanche to snaffle twice my usual choc snaffling, didn't it?
    Until i realised that this pesky woman probably lives in a part of the world where carbs and fibre are listed together.
    Humph.
    So that blew today by, um... Gosh... +10g carbs :rolleyes: Hahaha!

    B: coffeencream
    L: salad with tuna and cheese and hard boiled egg
    S: aforementioned choc
    D: 3 eggs and kale

    B: cup of tea.
    L: was out going to car boot and B&Q, so popped in to lidi and got a egg mayonnaise sandwich (stupid really and it tasted as bad as a hospital sandwich).
    D: couple of chicken drumsticks, strawberries.
    In bed with pain now. At least my garden is looking healthy, even if I don't feel it.

    D: KFC original recipe x 2 pieces

    On way home from Leipzig, starving hungry and very few options (I said no way to McDs or Pizza Hut!!). Thankfully monitor buried in luggage so won't know (well until tomorrow am) how bad my numbers are ...

    But sometimes you just gotta eat not going to beat myself up too much - and will be having red wine on flight home, even if I did spill it on my beige cords on the flight over LOL

    This weekend reminded me just how much you need to prep when travelling! I'll be more on track next time

    Cheese and blueberries for breakfast, Niçoise salad for lunch and a lidl HP roll with 1.5 lean sausages for tea. Reading up from 5.3 to 6.2 after tea but so good to eat some bread!

    Anyone else LOVING salads at the mo?
    It must be the weather, because they are usually too cold and clammy for me. But at the moment I am actually craving the cool crunch.
    Long may it last!

    Think my carb fest in Germany (well KFC at least!) has carried on today - ravenous!

    B: spinach, ham hock, poached eggs, hollandaise (good start!)
    L: rocket, sun dried tomatoes, cheese, cottage cheese, bit of balsamic ... BG 8.5 2 hours after :(
    S: 6 hotel chocolat chocolates, 2 bags of pork scratchings, some OPPO low carb ice cream, some cheddar cheese, glass of red wine, Annas cappuccino thins (low carb but I ate 10+) ... (see, ravenous - and honest!)

    D: will be chicken crown, asparagus and seasonal veg - so a good end to the day!

    Decided that exercise is my key, haven't swam since Thursday am - everything gone to pot and feeling a bit down (again), just have to be even more focused and prepare more when travelling ;)

    Yes, with different greens and lots of olive oil!

    B: Overnight chia chocolate coconut pudding
    L: Slim Pasta with Thai red curry (incl. black eyed peas, broccoli and tomatoes) Upshot: These noodles are not for me. I can live with the smell, but the texture was off, very much like rubber
    D: Big Spring salad with a bit of tahini, lots of olive oil and some spicy olives, dessert was rhubarb stewed with vanilla and eaten with kefir. My comment: This was sour + sour. I guess the rhubarb will go better with double cream.

    Nothing yet today...but yesterday..
    Had odd nibble of cheese, nuts and tomato through out the day
    Dinner: had test run of my new barbeque...and had little piece of steak and slightly larger piece of smoked salmon with broccoli..and some G.yogurt and berries :hungry:
    OMG!....the smoked salmon nearly made me pass out with pleasure..:D...I like smoked fish in general, but boy, it was so good. After long fasting session it was flavour explosion in a mouth..and I was back in my native country...'sitting side of lake..eating freshly court fish..cooking it on side of open fire..(oh those memories).
    Going back to fishmongers today to get some more to smoke....'adiction, here we come..':rolleyes:
