Thanks for posting Caroline :)

That's so true, dear Caroline62. The best part of morning is coffee and in my case it is tea with ginger and FF.

Sorry to know about migraines. I know the feeling. I know some ppl get relief from meditation. May be you can give a try.

This will be day 4 of OMAD and I'll be treating myself with cherry tomatoes and lettuce with eggs prepared in chillie chutney with veggies. Back to walk with Mr.FT.

Have you planned a set number of OMAD days? Your meal for tomorrow sounds quite tasty.

FairyTales
FairyTales2kg in reply to Peachy40

Hey Peachy, for now it is just 3 days and Friday will be 4th. I haven't planned it yet but I want to keep going as much as I can. My thought is if this is helping me meet my target and I'm able to take it without feel weak or having any other issues, it should be fine to continue.

Peachy40
Peachy401st 7lbs in reply to FairyTales

Ah okay. That's fair enough. Good luck with day 4!

Hello, Thank you for hosting, Caroline62. Sorry to hear you have been unwell. Lovely food to make you better. Have had a challenging week, but seemed to turn a corner this afternoon, hope-I-hopa :) Looking to be low carbish

B Coffee and double cream

D Sausage something...garlic, kidney beans, mushrooms, pepper, chilli pepper, broccoli and onion. Maybe stewed Bramley apple and Greek yogurt

T Scrambled eggs and smoked salmon with chives and a green salad

Walking and a bit of shopping. Have a great Friday! :)

FairyTales
FairyTales2kg in reply to Hopalong1

Nice food. Are kidney beans low carbs. I can add it to my list.

Hopalong1
Hopalong14st 7lbs in reply to FairyTales

No, not at all low carb. You have me rushing to the tracker to see if I am under 150g of carbs. Half a cup 55g.

FairyTales
FairyTales2kg in reply to Hopalong1

Ahh sorry about that !! I just wanted to see if I can include in my diet.

FairyTales
FairyTales2kg in reply to Hopalong1

Which tracker you prefer. I just red 40grams of beans contains 25grams of net carbs....so you shd be good with it.

Hope you feel better tomorrow Caroline62, I end up with migraines when staring at work screens for too long, have to remind myself to take breaks!

My day was good, ended up with a delicious, improvised dinner of cous cous with 3 veg and soya chunks mixed in, plus roast root veg, raw spinach and avocado slices. I used fry light with a drizzle of olive oil.

Tomorrow (12:12 & healthy eating):

B: probably a smoothie

L: leftover cous cous/veg with avocado and cherry tomatoes

D: leftover roast root veg, not sure what with (something quick)

S: oaty pumpkin 'cake,' fruit

E: home workout, school walks

Have a good Friday!

Maisie48
Maisie481st 7lbs in reply to Greendream123

Have a great Friday. 😊

Peachy40
Peachy401st 7lbs in reply to Greendream123

Leaving out the tomatoes, lunch sounds lovely. What is this oaty pumpkin cake? Are you mixing oats with pumpkin?

Greendream123
Greendream123Soup Off winner in reply to Peachy40

I experimental and baked oats, steamed pumpkin, dates, banana, a few cashews and a sprinkle of coconut into 6 mini cupcake cases. They're not sweet but not bitter so go well with something spread lightly on top! My 9 year old ate one so they can't be that bad!

Peachy40
Peachy401st 7lbs in reply to Greendream123

Everything in it is delicious, so putting it together can't be that bad either!

Interesting...

Good evening I hope I find everyone well, this week has been a learning curve, with regards to LCHF, but I'm sticking with it. Knowledge is power as they say πŸ˜‰ I've changed my grocery shopping day from Friday to Monday so im looking forward to relaxing after work tomorrow.

I've noticed my thirst has increased considerably these past few days, I must remember to just have water and notvsugar infested still lemonade!!! The carbs are just not worth it!!

Food for tomorrow looks like this:

First thing: cup of coffee

Breakfast ( at work) blueberries and strawberries with FF Greek Yogurt

Lunch: ham and egg salad

Tea: chicken tray bake ( chicken thighs, onion, peppers, courgette, cauliflower)

Exercise: dog walk after work

FairyTales
FairyTales2kg in reply to siggie

nice menu! you can add mint in water with lemonade to make it minty.

Peachy40
Peachy401st 7lbs in reply to siggie

I used to add a slice of lime in my water. Then I ran out of lime and forgot all about it! πŸ˜‚ 🀣 Great menu for tomorrow.

lucigret
lucigretAdministrator in reply to siggie

A tray bake is just a great way of cooking.

You could try sparkling water instead of sugar laden drinks. Flavour with orange, lemon or lime slices, or look for cold Infusions. I found one that is kid friendly and it adds a nice flavour😊

Greendream123
Greendream123Soup Off winner in reply to siggie

Sounds great. I used to only drink lemon or lime water but have got into the routine of just plain water now. My partner buys still lemonade sometimes though and you can find less sugary ones which use apple for sweetness, probably still not low carbs though.

jd65
jd652 stone in reply to siggie

my favourite breakfast.

Love the sound of the traybake.

Cp1965
Cp196548kg in reply to siggie

ooo, nice menu! I've noticed my thirst has increased too since starting to run, think it may be that. I have stopped buying fizzy drinks (except on the weekends my daughter is with me) and now stick to water with chunks of lemon and/or lime in, or weak squash.

Caroline62
Caroline62Ambassador in reply to siggie

Yes it is ridiculous how many carbs are hidden in these things. We are learning daily. You have lovely food there enjoy. Also the dog walk keep save. 😊

lucigretAdministrator

Hello Caroline, I am sorry to hear that you are suffering with a migraine, they really are awful. I am also sorry to hear that London is heading to enter Tier 2 this weekend. I suppose we have to look at the positives, at least you can still get outside and maybe meet up with a friend outside, weather permitting. This is going to stop my daughter being able to come home again. We shall just have to meet up somewhere when we can. I keep telling my self nothing can last for ever, although this is beginning to feel like for ever! We have been much luckier than some, especially those living up North.

I love the sound of your food and would eat all of it except mushy peas, I have never understood how anybody could enjoy mushy peas. Dad loves them.

I am still following TAT's 4 week plan LCFH, keeping the carbs low and IF

Lunch will be cheese, pepperoni and salad

Dinner is Chilli on a bed of buttered cabbage

Have a great Friday everybody :)

FairyTales
FairyTales2kg in reply to lucigret

Buttered cabbage...so yummy. This is new for me. I will try this one on Saturday.

lucigret
lucigretAdministrator in reply to FairyTales

I cook it in butter. Place butter in pan and melt on a low heat, add the cabbage and put a lid on so that it steams, stir a few times, it is just the best way to eat cabbage :)

FairyTales
FairyTales2kg in reply to lucigret

wow ! simple and tasty cabbage.

siggie
siggie1st 7lbs in reply to lucigret

Cp1965
Cp196548kg in reply to lucigret

Lunch sounds awesome! Sounds very much like one of my fridge surprise salads... Dinner sounds good too apart from the cabbage, sadly years of being served something up which had been boiled to death and looked like the aftermath of a heavy cold (and tasted similar) means that even the smell of cabbage now turns my stomach. My late mother would probably have just put her cabbage and sprouts for Christmas dinner on about now...

I hated boiled cabbage and didn’t eat cabbage for many years. Believe it or not, cooking it in butter, it doesn’t smell and doesn’t look like the aftermath of a heavy cold, honest. Be brave and have a go. You could eat it raw in coleslaw 😁

Caroline62
Caroline62Ambassador in reply to lucigret

My daughter cannot come home from her place as she is high risk. What with her weight and living with others. We talk every day on messenger. My grandson can come as he is classed as my bubble has I live on my own.

He did well with painting in the bathroom. Although I will not let him do my bedroom. I think that is a step too far. It may have been the smell of the paint that brought the head on. Paint to cover up a water stain really had a strong smell. Yes the north has been much worse this time around. My brother so far as been lucky, he is on the outskirts of Leeds.

Mushy peas are a Yorkshire thing that goes with fish and chips with lots of vinegar on. Mmmmm.

Lovely food luci and enjoy. Keep save. 😊

lucigret
lucigretAdministrator in reply to Caroline62

Oh Caroline, life is just hard for us all! Your daughter will be missing you. Great that you can have some company with your grandson and even better that he has been helpful😊

We have no idea what to do with our son. His home re opens on 2/11. I think we just have to wait and see!!!

Hope you’re feeling better 😊x

Hi Caroline62

Thanks for hosting considering the migraine. Hope it gets better soon. πŸ™πŸΎ

I rarely have hot drinks and when I do, it's a cup of tea at night πŸŒƒ.

I didn't get a chance to post today. I was out with friends on Wednesday evening and was sensible with my meal; a lovely salmon fillet with baby potatoes. Had a glass of prosecco πŸ₯‚ and two single vodkas with tonic. I hadn't seen my friends since March, so there was lots to catch up on. Such a great evening.

Today, for dinner, we did burgers πŸ”. They were pretty delicious πŸ˜‹ and the girls felt it was a nice treat. Might look to do it once a fortnight.

I'm calorie counting at 1500 per day.

B: mango with greek yogurt πŸ₯­

L: either salmon or sea bass with savoy cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower 🐠

D: out with a friend (before London's Tier 2 kicks in). I might go for lamb or a steak. πŸ₯©

S: dark chocolate 🍫

Ex: hopefully a morning run πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈ (I haven't been doing them on mornings, but my daughters have a day off school tomorrow so I'm not as restricted to a schedule). Fingers crossed 🀞🏾 it's not raining.

We were planning to visit my grandmum this weekend, but the restrictions have really put a damper on that! πŸ˜” I've gotten her a tablet so that we can do video calls instead of just the voice ones...so will at least drop that off.

It's getting tough out there so stay safe everyone!

*Update from last night's post....my exercise has changed from running to swimming. ☺

FairyTales
FairyTales2kg in reply to Peachy40

Happy to know you enjoyed with friends. We all have missed meeting our friends and family for a long time. We have also started going out. Sorry to know you cannot meet your grandma...good that you guys can do video chats.

Peachy40
Peachy401st 7lbs in reply to FairyTales

Just listening to the news now and I realise technically she's considered part of our support bubble as she lives alone...so it may not be all bad! I'm going to check with her and my mum. See what they think. πŸ™πŸΎ

FairyTales
FairyTales2kg in reply to Peachy40

ScoutyPat
ScoutyPat7lbs in reply to Peachy40

Happy weekend.

Peachy40
Peachy401st 7lbs in reply to ScoutyPat

She should be okay with it. Good on your grandma too! ☺

siggie
siggie1st 7lbs in reply to Peachy40

I know what you mean, even before the possibility of going into tier 3, my area was on tighter restrictions and we haven't been able to meet anyone from another household indoors or outdoors for months, going into tier 2 actually relaxed our restrictions.!! Its all very confusing and I think many people have now got 'pandemic fatigue ' .

Hope you get out for your run and fingers crossed it keeps fine. 😊

Peachy40
Peachy401st 7lbs in reply to siggie

Yes, it's very rare I listen to anything regarding the pandemic these days. I still wfh and I shop online, so in fact I hardly go anywhere πŸ˜‚.

So regarding my run...can't. Didn't realise it going to be just me and the girls this morning. πŸ™„.

I have swimming 🏊🏿 later though, which I always seem to forget.

It’s good to have some time with friends after so long. Hopefully it will not be so long before you see them again. Swimming is a good alternative to running. So enjoy.

Peachy401st 7lbs in reply to Caroline62

Very annoying that you're not able to see your daughter. The trouble is...you just don't know how long this will last.

Hi all, unusual long day planned for me tomorrow, so unusual for me no plan, just nutrition to get through the day.

B: tea, brezel, butter

L: boiled eggs, carrot salad, leftover roast pumpkin and seeds

D: sandwich or pastie on the road, water

TGI Friday!

Thanks for hosting Caroline62 and I love the Pooh Bear picture. Hope the migrane stays away and you caught it in time before it causes a problem.

Almost to the end of week 11 NHS plan for me, work day Friday so looking forward to my time with my year 11 students and probably a short walk lunch time to get some daylight time outside as I hate the darker, longer evenings.

Tea first thing

B= pear and yoghurt (break time)

S= rice cracker, nuts

D= teriyaki salmon and stirfry veg. Fruit

Probably have a small whisky in the evening

It's at the stage where its dark when I start work and getting dark when i finish. I'm working at home next to a floor to ceiling window so at least I get light during the day. I've never been a whisky drinker but the smell does remind me of colder weather and winter.

Yes the dark nights are with us now ScoutyPat. Hope you get out at lunch time. Enjoy your fab food and keep save. 😊

Good morning Caroline, I so much agree with you on coffee. Here I am bright and early having the first one of the day. Hope it carries me through the day working in a pressurised environment at school, where lots of staff off isolating because of a few COVID cases. Lots of extra measures making everyone really exhaustedπŸ˜“

Hope your migraines disappear soon, I know they are no fun.

My meals are not very exciting today, but scraping the bottom of the barrel before weekly shopping and too tired to cook tonight.

I follow NHS calorie counting and try to reduce carbs

Aim: 1400-1700 calories daily

Exercise: I follow the C25K model, running 3 days a week and aiming to walk at least 6000 steps each day. Have not been very good lately and done no runs for a while, but a lot of walking daily.

B: 1 weetabix with blueberries and milk+ coffee

L: vegetable leftover soup + apple

D: Will be a Thai curry, but not exactly sure what

Wishing you all a good day. Take care and find ways to brighten your days in these dark times. I always try to think of something to be grateful for each day.πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Have a great day too. Love your idea of finding something to be grateful for each day

Good morning Caroline62 .

That picture is me with my coffee - keeping my hands warm - although I'm wearing trousers.

Being in Wales I'm waiting to see if we're going to have a circuit breaker and what that means. We're already in local lockdown even though our numbers haven't peaked any where near as high as other areas in lockdown. So I'm just confused by where it's all going.

Cupboards are looking a bit bare for lunch as we aren't going shopping until tomorrow and I've run out of cheese , eggs & salad so will have to open a tin of soup or resort to a ham sandwich with my OH.

B. greek yoghurt, nuts and berries

L. ham sandwich or soup

D. slow cooker beef goulash, green vegetables, carrot & potato mash.

Have a great day.

Loraine5182st 7lbs in reply to jd65

It is so confusing at the moment with all the different guidelines depending on where you live. We are in a med risk area at present, so not too bad, but hoping to go out to a vineyard for lunch with my son and DIL and my daughter. But as they both have babies, who count in our 6, not sure what will happen yet.

Enjoy your food today, which sounds good despite running out of the usual staples.

I hope we have a circuit breaker where I am as I am not confident that other measures are working. Today in a jewellers we saw not only staff without masks but also all the customers. It is a shop with all glass front so it was blatant πŸ™„ and really disappointing. The town I am in has really low numbers but, the borough I live in does not and we are in tier 2. The jewellers is in an area that is looking at going into tier 3. We can only do what is expected of ourselves and keep safe.

Beef goulash sounds good especially as it gets colder.

Morning all and thanks for hosting Caroline62. I love the pic! Sorry to hear about your migraine, hope you feel better today.

I'm aiming for lchf and around 2000cals. Have lost another 2lb this week so am very pleased. Starting my new role at work next week so feeling apprehensive about that, but will try to plan in advance so at least food is a bit easy. Am going to make some seeded crackers later i think.

B - after zumba - might go for cauliflower hashbrowns, bacon, egg and tomato

L - maybe coffee with cream or some chicken salad depending on how hungry I am.

D - burger and salad. I think the husband wants takeaway - so i am probably going to have a burger with salad and not eat the bun.

Its Friday so will share a bottle of something and probably have a little dark chocolate🍫

E - just about to start zumba class

Have a good day all

Nice day's menu! I make my own keto bread now, had a burger on that last night - very tasty although I do say so myself!

Yeah I do have some keto bread and buns in the freezer so could get one out and swap it or something. Wanted a homemade one but have to compromise sometimes dont we :)

Cauliflower hash browns sound interesting, are they similar to potato ones?

Good morning Caroline, thanks for hosting, I sympathise with the migraines as I have suffered with one this week too and tried to limit my time on the computer, glad to hear it is easing now.

My week has been very busy and I have managed OMAD most days this week, which I am happy about and the scales have been kinder the last few weeks, since starting on TAT's 4 week plan.

Busy day again today, back to back work calls, till mid afternoon, then will try to walk the dogs, before going to pick up daughter and grandson for an appointment late afternoon.

I am following LCHF, OMAD (weekday), IF(Weekends) and no alcohol

Dinner today is a takeaway, not sure what yet, but it will fit my plan as much as possible

Drinks Tea, black coffee and trying to drink more water

Exercise Yoga and walking the dogs if I get time

Happy Friyay everyone πŸ™‚

My food today looks like:

Can't beat a HM curry! I make one about once a fortnight, usually do either a tikka masala or a Madras, and prefer them to ready meals or pre-packaged sauces...

Tank_EG
Tank_EG4 stone in reply to Cp1965

I still use a spice pot but otherwise the rest is down to me.

I'm looking forward to having the time to be more creative but for now this strikes a happy balance between convenience and knowing exactly what is going into the curry πŸ˜€

Morning all. Confession time, one of my staff brought cake in yesterday to celebrate his birthday and I succumbed... only a small piece though. I have donned sackcloth and ashes for the day.

Today's plan started well, but... as usual, I filled my coffee flask for my train journey, screwed the lid on and shook it to distribute the milk, that was when I discovered I had cross-threaded the lid, resulting in a trip to the bedroom for a clean shirt and a quick wipe of the worktop and mop of the floor, chucked my flask and water bottle in my bag, and discovered that my lunchbox is still in my kitchen!

So, today looks like being a trip to M&S up the road for whatever salad they have on the shelf for lunch...

Dinner will be something teenage girl friendly as my daughter is staying with me for half term week, as I need to pay a call to Mr Sainsbury this evening I'll let her choose. Thinking of something fishy though, may steer her towards the fish counter... I have some oven chips in which she can have, and I may do myself some courgette fries and garden peas. Exercise will be my usual walking to and from the station, plus a walk up the road for lunch and an amble round the supermarket, also trying to do a bit of upper body exercise in an attempt to tone the saggy bits!

Have a good one all, and hope to see some of you on the Saturday weigh-in tomorrow.

Well done for only having a small piece of cake! I find that sometimes the name of the game is to just do better than you used to, rather than be 'perfect' all the time, which no one can achieve. Material point: don't beat yourself up too much for a one-off slip-up. If it's happening regularly, well sure, then it's time to reassess, but I defy anyone to find even one person on here who hasn't done the same.

Sorry to hear about your morning fiasco. How frustrating! At least it's the weekend, eh? πŸ˜… Hope your daughter decides on something good for dinner! Enjoy! 😊

Good to see a level of contrition and confession is good for the soul 🀣

Seriously though I agree with Rabbit81, we still have to live life and that means we are allowed to enjoy treats like cake πŸ˜€

Hoping this morning doesn't set a precedent for the rest of your day 🀞

Caroline62
Caroline62Ambassador in reply to Cp1965

Oh no that’s not a good start to the day. It can only get better. I am sure M&S will have something good for you. It will be good having your daughter with you during half term. Enjoy and hope the rest of the day goes well.

Small piece of cake sounds like a nice treat. I know make sure cake is much smaller than I used to have but, I haven't stopped it entirely as life does bring cake sometimes!

Thanks for hosting Caroline. Sorry to hear you've been struggling with migraines this week; that can't be fun. Love the picture, though!

I'm on LC these days, as best as possible. Today's a bit tricky, though, as I have a first date tonight, so I don't know how that's going to play out other than having a drink or two.

But, as far as I shall try, the menu today will be:

Breakfast: Bacon, egg, tea with cream, water

Lunch: Prawn salad, water

Dinner: Hopefully fishcakes, sautΓ©ed kale, ricotta cheese 'pudding', white wine, water

Snacks: Going to try to avoid these today, but probably some herbal tea in the evening

Exercise: Around 150 minutes walking, since I need to pop into work, and then the date...

Thank goodness it's the weekend

I quite agree with the coffee! I love cauliflower cheese too!

I'm posting late because I was undecided what I'd be eating.

So, approximately 1700-1800 kcal:

B: oats with milk, frozen berries and Greek yoghurt, tea

L: white bread muffin, ham, satsuma

D: roast chicken, jacket potato, veg, banana

E: done a 5k

S: tea, coffee, water, it's Friday so some wine

Have a great day everyoneπŸ™‚

Hello Caroline Well today has been different we have traveled to the highlands of Scotland for a week. I managed beef burger and salad for Lunch but tonight with nothing open but fish and chips that’s what I had to have. I would have had a fish and mushy peas but we had to eat them in the car an I thought mushy peas might be hard. So I’ve blown my LCHF today :(

Caroline62
Caroline62Ambassador in reply to Reving

Not to worry Reving you can start again when you get home. Enjoy yourselves up there. Bet it’s cold. 😊
