    Last day of my holibobs got back home late
    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries and cream washed down with a black coffee.
    Late morning: raspberry Phd and a coconut cappuccino
    Late lunch by the pool: cold meats and cheese with pork crackling followed by SF jelly and a CCB
    Dinner at Bella Italia: bolognese spiroli.

    Thanks for that help. I hadn’t thought of freezing the cauliflower and broccoli- good idea. That cauliflower! Whether I’ve grated it in the processor, grated it by hand or chopped finely with a knife, it always manages to spread itself everywhere. It seems to jump - over the work surface, me and the floor. Doing a large batch at a time is a great solution. And I’ll pick up some rollitos and try them out. Though manchego cheese in deepest Bavaria???? We are country mice so it’s a case of ‘if the farmer’s wife doesn’t cook with it .....’. Not wanting to be rude to the farmer’s wife of course. Spanish ham is available though!

    Morning All!

    Yesterday was
    B: none
    L: half a small truckle of mature cheddar with butter
    D: brisket, homemade gravy, butter and more cheese

    Not a very active day.

    @maglil55
    you asked about the LC GF cake. Ah, happy memories.
    It was from the fabulous cafe in Tyninghame. It did have sugar in it, and as icing, but the flour was almond, and it was by far the lowest carb thing there. I always discard the sickly icing anyway, so that wasn't a problem for me. That teashop is wonderful, on many levels, including that they let the dogs inside (we had had enough sun earlier that day!), although on another day, sitting outside in their courtyard would have been lovely.

    I'm avoiding food with sharp edges - in fact with this sore throat everything feels like its got sharp edges. I'm craving Heinz cream of tomato soup and Tiger bread like i always do when I'm poorly. Luckily I haven't got either in the house.

    Today...

    Breakfast: Scrambled eggs (lots)

    Lunch: 10 cal jelly

    Dinner: home made cream of mushroom soup (using up the h/m chicken stock blocks in my freezer)

    Drinks: black decaff coffee and lots of water

    Hope the throat gets better soon but the menu seems soothing and LC so discipline excellent in trying conditions.

    Sorry about the bad throat, nothing worse imo. Try melting a square of dark choc on your tongue as can be quite soothing too. If you feel like you have razor blades in your throat you might need checking for Tonsilitis, just a thought. Do take care.

    Breakfast was 1 sausage (home made), a slice of bacon and 2 fried eggs.
    Lunch was strawberries and cream (I went back and reloaded with strawberries).
    Dinner will be oxtail stew - another package from the freezer which had lost its label.
    I haven't had coffee for months now - maybe 18 or so but today I fancied a cup of black coffee and I don't understand why I stopped drinking it, so I just had another (to settle my stomach after all those strawberries).

    Another hungry day - had to give up on not having breakfast by 10am and had smoked salmon and scrambled egg.
    Couple of hours or so later a few slices of salami and 2 choc Nut squares.
    Mid aft 1 Baby bell
    Dinner will be marinated chicken thighs ( similar to to tandoori but no chilli) with cabbage slaw and salad. Probably some Montezuma’s too.
    I’ve been getting an afternoon slump recently - like a sugar crash but my menus haven’t changed recently so I’ve been trying to figure out why. The only thing that springs to mind is too much coffee in the morning causing a bit of withdrawal later. (I don’t drink it after about 12 noon) I’m going to limit it to 2 mugs tomorrow. ( if possible)

    Generally low energy day after swimming lesson. Low energy has been the story since last Tuesday - didn't think 1 birthday would make such a difference. So the energy giving menu. B=tea; swim then lemon and ginger tea. NE1 = flaxseed crackers (2xL), h/g and h/m egg mayo with grated cheddar plus cherry toms and cucumber. Then St Paul sums me up "So then, with my mind I am a slave to the law of good nutrition, but with my flesh I am a slave to the law of stupid eating." Salami, emmental slices and cooked bacon in the fridge and I was tired rather than hungry but I ate. NE2 not sure: had analysed for a mackerel salad but that's a bit healthy for today. May have Fage and 10 cal jelly and move on chastened but none the wiser.

    That’s horrible, sorry to hear you’re ill. Heinz tomato soup was our regular soothing meal when we were ill as kids. In case you’re not eating much, Heinz cream of tomato soup has 6.7 gms carbs in 100 ml. :) so might it still be possible?

    Hi all
    Good news re the libre sensor and my swim this morning- I did use some clear waterproof dressing - as suggested by @maglil55 - and also restricted to 20 lengths, about 15mins, to make sure but did do 20 minsin jacuzzi with arm kept out on side ( did have lots of splashes though), 3 mins in steam room and 5 in sauna. I’m thrilled that it hasn’t seemed to have affected it at all. Readings post water immersion very similar to yesterday’s ones - @maglil55 thank you for advice this gave me confidence to go for it. Love being back in gym and pool after absence due to hols and then knee injury.
    Breakfast after gym and swim bacon and egg
    Lunch half tin sardinesin olive oil with five lc seeded crispbreads
    Dinner salmon in lemon butter served with asparagus followed by hm rhubarb fool and just about to have decaf coffee withsmall piece of 100% choc.

    Thank you, everyone, for your kind words.

    I'm okay sticking with low carb foods - i have to be because thats all thats in the house. (Mr C hides his stash of carborific goodies in his desk at work). The sore throat is morphing in to a cough but at least the headache is almost gone.

    I wonder what the person i caught this of off was at the doctor's for? Worrying!

    It's just dawned on me what you mean (as an android user) and yes I do close down all the Apps. I use Power Clean to shut down the Apps working away in the background quite a few times a day.
