Saturday, 07-04-18

Good morning.

Firstly: Jan and Tricia.  I see you left comments a while ago and I didn't answer.  I'm really sorry, I should have done and I have now.  The post is here.
Apologies to anyone else whose comments I have missed.

I had a horrible feeling yesterday's weigh in might have just been a fluke but no, it's gone down a bit more this morning.  Phew!

Today's plans:
B:  muesli and yogurt
L:  steak, salad
D:  chicken drumsticks, SW chips, tomatoes roasted in a little spray oil (may as well make use of the oven being on); fruit yogurt
Ss:  apples

From the freezer
The steak, which I already have so I'm using up what I have already got.  I'll get there at some point
Chicken drumsticks

The kidney beans are now in the freezer and the pinto beans have been soaked overnight for cooking shortly so they will also be frozen by this evening.  I will be able to make a good few meals with them!

The frugal factor
Nope!  :-)  Well, breakfast is OK and the drumsticks aren't shockingly expensive but the steak - ooops!
It's stuff I already had in the freezer, however, so no guilt whatsoever!  Anyway, one of the things about being more frugal is so that one can occasionally enjoy a more expensive meal without needing to take out a Wonga loan. I shall enjoy it.

Have a good day!


  1. Good Afternoon Joy

    Well done on a bit more weight loss. You're that bit nearer to the weight you want/need to be. We're watching our calories with an "App" on our phones! It's quite laborious typing everything in, but it's a big wake-up call as to how easy it is to put weight on without realising. Once we're at the weight we want/need to be, we will continue to eat sensibly.

    Just to let you know, I did try the sardines (in tomato sauce). I mashed them (can't abide any bones whatsoever) heated them up and had them with fries and veggies. They were better than I expected and will try another 'flavour' next time. I also got the Caribbean mackerel and will give that a go next week. So, thank you for your tips and ideas.

    Have a good evening.


    p.s. Sorry to one and all to have waffled on so long! :-)

    1. I'm so glad you liked the sardines. I think they are very under-appreciated really but I guess that's why they are such great value.
      I think what you're doing sounds great. It's working for you and that is the most important thing. Well done.
      (and not too long at all)
