Tonight I celebrate going 3 days with no caffeine. Yes, that means no coffee and no tea. I am giving up because I was gradually having more and more. What started as the occasional cup on my way in to the office became one on the way in every day, one mid morning, something after lunch and then tea in between. Not only was I consuming too much caffeine, I was drinking loads of calories in all that milk. So it has been banished from my life. It is not easy and I have felt very tired but that is easing. I have been drinking fruity herbal teas, Rooibos, Genmai Cha (brown rice green tea) and green tea instead. With no milk at all.
I went to Weight Watchers tonight and I weigh the same as last time I went. I am pleased I am not going up but I need to go down. So I am going back to basics and counting points again. I have 32 points a day and today I had………32 points 🙂
Breakfast – nothing. Unusual for me I know but I was not hungry first thing and was then too undecided about what to get and then too busy.
Lunch – toasted cheese and ham sandwich (16 points) and Minestrone soup (12 points) from EAT.
Supper – a fruity smoothie totalling 4 points.
Frozen mixed berries.
Strawberries and three types of leaves from the garden: kale, beetroot leaves and spinach.
1 pear and 1 apricot – weird how they are the same colour!
200 g tofu (6 points)
250 ml unsweetened soya milk (2 points)
It was good and I shared it with Harvey, hence my points are half what I am displaying above. It wasn’t sweet enough for Harvey so after I had served mine I added some Blackstrap Molasses to his which gives it a lovely burnt toffee flavour.
