What a delightfully sunny and warm day it was today. Well, it was in Ramsgate and I hope you enjoyed some sunshine too.
I started with hot water with honey and apple cider vinegar. It is growing on me. I was going to Ramsgate for the day to get the house ready for the next visitors which meant a very busy and intense 5 house for the turnover. Luckily I had Lara and Jo Jo to help me today and they were fabulous.
I took food with me so I wasn’t tempted to snack or over eat. I had 35g oats which I mixed with 1 tbsp chia seeds and 150 ml milk. When it came time to eat it, I had an apple with it. I also munched my way through 2 other apples during the day. This is one of my favourite rooms in any of the houses that I get to visit. I like the wide dark wood floorboards , the size and scale of the room but the main attraction is the view. I do enjoy sitting in that window seat. I prefer this aspect when I am looking at the seats full of friends or family. This view is lovely and I can sit and watch the boats coming and going or just bobbing about in the water for hours. Unfortunately we were too busy to sit and relax today but at least I spent a few minutes in here. Last night, while I was cooking dinner, I prepared our lunch for today. It was roasted vegetables (carrots, butternut squash, leeks, red onion and red kale) with chickpeas and quinoa. Not particularly exciting but it tasted good enough, was light and definitely healthy. While cooking tonight’s dinner, which was pasta and veggies, I deliberated about whether to have wine or cheese with my dinner. Wine won – a very large 250ml glass full of it 🙂 This was a very simple supper but it tasted good. Wholewheat spaghetti with tomatoes, onions, red kale and spinach with lots of garlic and a little chilli. It tasted even better with some cheese on. I wasn’t going to but I couldn’t resist, especially when I saw I had enough syns/calories to have some.
Having completed my food diary, I am only over my syns by a half so I am happy with today’s eating.
