Well, just thought I would put down what I eat this week and what I am doing day to day…..just out of interest and so that you can see what a slack tart I am!! I have absolutely no structure to my days. I don’t count calories, I don’t measure out one bloody cup of food….I just wing it basically. That said…maybe it’s time I did!!!!
I have been going OK since my last fill and at this stage I don’t think I need another one. Some things hurt….some things don’t. Some days I don’t even feel like I have a bloody band…..other days I hate it!!!! Mostly I love it. I do know I should get my arse into gear and stop eating so much shit!!
So…..going to start with today. I am doing this at work because I like to live on the edge!!!!! Well, today anyway……………………
Up at 5.30am………I am nearly always up before the alarm (6.15am) because my hip hurts 😦 I don’t really mind though. I quite enjoy my quiet time in the early mornings. I feed the cat, give the dogs their smacko treat, make my coffee and turn the computer on. I usually read blogs and comment etc for half an hour each morning. It is a quiet thing to do so I don’t wake Ricky up until the alarm goes off.
Ricky gets up,…….another coffee with him. Make our “play lunches” for the day. He goes to work……I get in the shower and then I go to work too. This morning I didn’t make any lunch for me….because I only had enough bread for Ricky’s lunch…..I will get something on way to work.
Today I ate:-
1 slice of date loaf with margarine & skinny latte for breakfast (at my desk when I got to work)….doesn’t everybody have date loaf for breakfast!!??
1 small chicken caesar wrap between 11am and 12.30pm. I picked the lettuce out of it because it was disgusting….not because I can’t eat lettuce. So ended up with small quantity of chicken & the wrap bit.
1 small white chocolate solid egg that Penny gave me. (about the equivalent of a square of chocolate )
1 skinny latte
4pm…… it is taking all my strength not to go to the vending machine and get a packet of Samboy bbq chips!!!! I am going to make another coffee because that might stop me!!!
My work days suck!!!!! I always end up having something “bad” when I am at work. I need to work on this. I haven’t drunk any water so far today…..bad, bad, bad!!!! Raced home from work, grabbed Scarlett and took her to the vet for her 2nd anti inflammatory injection for her dicky knees.
2 poached eggs on top of peas and corn. I feel full…but still want to eat something else!! Know what I mean?? Ricky working late tonight….another trap…..bored so I eat. I might get sick of typing before I get sick of eating….. but I will be truthful 🙂
All right!!!! I found some Weight Watchers Belgian Eclairs in the freezer……..find!!!!! So I ate all three of them 😦 It says on the box they are one and a half points each….so I don’t think that was too bad. Not good though….shouldn’t be feeling like I want them.
So today…..no water, no exercise and no self control………..bugger.
I love green……………. well, actually I am writing this on Thursday…..but I think I can remember what I ate……unfortunately. Skinny latte & fruit bun for breakfast at my desk again!! Took about half an hour to get that lot down inbetween answering the phone…………..not because it hurt or anything. I hate it when work interferes with my eating!!
Then I was in court for most of the day. Got a quick break around lunchtime & I got a lowfat banana smoothie……it tasted like shit….so I threw it in the bin!! So then I was running out of time so I grabbed a weird looking pastry & meaty type of pinwheel thingy & a coffee. Ate half that and it started to hurt like hell…..so threw the last half away. Then I am sitting in front of the Magistrate with Reagan and I am eyeing off the bin on the floor next to me wondering how I could hurl into it without the rest of the courtroom seeing or hearing!!!
Not going to happen. Reg (Reagan) knew I was having “difficulty” but all she bloody did was laugh!!! We were sitting in front of the Magistrate with our backs to him and it is bad enough with two of us in there trying to control the giggles and writing stupid notes while boring hearings are on…………. she is whispering….”Chuck in the bin….go on!!” I was just paranoid I would do a loud burp!!!! Thankfully it went away and Reg had to find something else to amuse herself with 🙂
I have to say at this point that I am very, very fortunate to have great workmates and they are good fun and fantastic girls. (I have to say this because they read my blog!!) They have been so understanding about the lapband thing and are always interested in how I am going and very supportive. They have a wicked sense of humour which is right up my alley!! They can call me Nola if they want………but I much prefer it if they call me Hornbag or Goddess…….which they do 🙂 I am the oldest and by faaarrrrrr soooooooo much more mature than them!!!!!!!!!!!! Reg is my Goddess in training……..I am mentoring her 🙂
Oh….food……….Ricky working lates again, so only myself to please. I had 2 poached eggs, about a cup of baked beans on 2 slices of grain toast for my tea. I was starving!!!!!!!!!! Then later I really wanted ice-cream and topping………but I had yoghurt instead.
Thursday 14th ………(today)
First day of my run of days off. Showered…..out the door and up to the supermarket to do some groceries. I like grocery shopping when I have the time. Our supermarket plays really good music too….so I bop along and check out what is new or improved. I brought a Biggest Loser shake (already made up in a carton container with straw) and intended to drink that once I finished groceries. Two mouthfuls in the car and I threw it out…..tasted disgusting!! I seem to be having a run on throwing things away! Then I went and paid the hardware shop account so I can put more on there!! I LOVE the hardware shop…..I just can’t walk out with nothing. This morning I brought a dinky drawer insert for my cutlery.
Back home……….grabbed dogs …. back into car…..drove down to beach…..walked them for about 30 minutes. Just made it back to the car before the rain came. Back home….made coffee …. heated up a savoury muffin (small about the size of a cupcake)……….had two bites……….hurt like hell……….fed the rest to the dogs!!
By early afternoon I was starving…..so made a bowl of porridge and ate that with no problems. I have a beef and mushroom casserole thingy in the slow cooker for our tea tonight and it smells beautiful. Hopefully I will be able to eat some of that!!!! I will be pissed off if I can’t .
This afternoon I have been moving furniture. Ricky will have a pink fit when he gets home!!! I have moved the dressing table back into our room, moved the wardrobe out of our room, pulled the spare bedroom bedhead apart and offered it to the neighbour, cleaned out all my old handbags from the wardrobe and offered them to her too!!! Ricky will say, “You shouldn’t have moved that by yourself!!” ra, ra, ra…………I kind of push it along with my legs. He just gets worried………..but when I feel OK I like to do stuff 🙂 And I am too impatient to wait for him to get home once I get an idea in my head……………………….
I am bored with writing my food down……………..I am not going to do it anymore. I will just fill you in on any highlights like a public PB and things like that:) I suppose I will post this anyway……………even though it is boring, boring, boring……………………………………………..at least you learnt that I LOVE poached eggs 🙂
