Sunday, 18-11-18

Good morning.
I'm afraid I lost it again yesterday evenings.  Snacks/nibblies really are my downfall here at my parents' and it's all a little bit discouraging but there you go!

Today (well, tomorrow really but we're celebrating it today) is my Dad's 90th birthday.  He's asked for sirloin steak, so that's what he will have!

Today's plans, therefore, are -
B:  porridge with fruit and yogurt
SW:  healthy extra B and half a healthy extra A

L:  butternut squash and lentil soup
Very easy to make and quite delicious.  Butternut squash isn't cheap, of course, but neither is it shockingly expensive.
SW free

D:  sirloin steak, as above, with veg.  I have to ask Dad how he'd like his potatoes done. 
Frugal it ain't!!!
SW:  should be free as long as I pass on the sauce!

Ss:  trying for none as it seems that as soon as I start, I just keep going - it's all too available here!

Please, send me strengthening vibes for today!  I need them.


  1. Savoury snacks are my best defence is just not to buy them. Difficult though to avoid when you're staying elsewhere. Don't beat yourself up, Joy, it's only a very teeny minor part of your big journey.

    1. That's lovely, thanks. I don't buy them either for home. Oh, well, one can always move on! :-)

    2. Have a lovely peaceful weekend with your parents.
      Hopefully you’ll be able to have a walk too.
      It's wonderful that your parents are receiving support from the family and are still able to be at home.
      It must be hard physically and emotionally for you though.
      A few snacks will not affect your excellent progress towards your goal and sharing them will make your dad very happy.
      He will enjoy “spoiling” you! I know mine did.

    3. Thanks for the understanding, Sue. xxx
