Remember this I bought in the week? It looks similar to a pear but is actually a guava.
It was not what I was expecting at all. I thought they were pink inside but this one was yellow, hard and tasteless so I am afraid to say it went straight in to the compost, which was very disappointing. Instead I had an orange with 20 g pistachios for breakfast.
136 calories.Lara and I were off to Warwickshire for the evening but we managed a good walk in the morning. We walked over the road for about 45 minutes which earned me 210 calories. Salad for lunch. I had a base salad of green leaves and tomatoes. I added grated celeriac and finely chopped kohlrabi, grapefruit and beetroot. I love this combination. I ate this with houmous and spinach and sweet potato falafels. It was really good; full of flavours and contrasting textures.
580 calories. In the afternoon we set off for Warwickshire to stay with very dear friends. We arrived in time for supper which was a delicious lamb and root vegetable casserole. My photo does not do it justice so you’ll have to trust me it tasted fantastic. I had seconds.
766 calories. I ended the day 72 calories over limit but I was pleased with how I ate as I ate a lot of raw vegetables and nothing on the banned list plus I was under 1,500 calories which is my absolute maximum I allow myself.
I managed to resist some very fine wines, port and mountains of chocolate so I was pleased with that. How can some people be surrounded by chocolate and either not eat it at all or just have one or two? I did resist but I could not have it in the house and then not eat it all.
180 calories. Blue skies and sunshine – fantastic. We were going out for a walk anyway but it did make it even more beautiful. We went to the Heritage Centre at Pooley Country Park. This area was mined and the landscape is formed from mining activity; hills to walk up and large ponds caused by mining subsidence. We began walking along the towpath of the Coventry Canal. This was a good walk up to the top of this hill and there was a lovely view when we got there. We were treated to a lovely lunch in a local pub restaurant called Turpins Bar and Grill. I know asparagus is not in season but I really fancied it when I saw it on the menu. Served with a runny poached egg and a rasher of pancetta. It was very good.
Thank you VERY much BJ and Helen for such a lovely 24 hours.
So far today I have consumed 957 calories and earned 280 by walking. I will have a light salad for supper and end the day within my limit. I am getting better at this dieting lark 🙂
