    I try to exercise too.
    Do you know that @Jamrox is a great exercise motivator. She started several threads about exercise to encourage each other. Current one is 'step into spring'. I think some of us are slacking a bit at moment. Me, I am guilty of that.

    I love mushrooms. What do you stuff them with @Kat100?

    Breakfast: usual "porridge" cashew butter soya milk portion size,adjusted down as fasting bs a bit higher...that plus walking dog should keep.me within limits
    Dinner: Sainsbury's mega brunch...lovely..daughter had half the chips (walk round shop should work off the other half ;))
    Tea: chilli with wholewheat pasta (prefer it to rice wth chilli)
    Bedtime snack...possibly nuts they do keep fasting down most days

    Had two thin cinnamon crisp biscuits... but may still have the nuts.... having a strange day foodwise, feel REALLY hungry, eat a little then feel STUFFED then not long after I'm sooooo hungry again.... weird

    breakfast - the "usual"

    Dinner: 2 fried goose eggs, 4 halved tomatoes fried and slices of cheddar cheese under the eggs ... STILL stuffed ... ONE goose egg would have been plenty

    Got a couple of pork chops cooking for tea with probably buttered and black peppered leek and cabbage

    OK doggies are squeaking, their tea is late.....
