    Hey Diem! Oh cool, I was hoping there'd be another home-grower on the site it's sort of become a bit of a passion for me, which started with umpteen fruit trees and fruit bushes in the back garden, then progressed to tomatoes and cucumbers in grow bags..and now I want a bigger plot so that we can grow a variety of veg for all year round.

    I'd be really interested to know what you grow at home, and what you've had successes with..I'd like to grow cauliflowers for cauli rice, but I've heard they're quite difficult to grow xx

    Go for it LadyFel! I absolutely love it. Its surprising what you can grow in a small space I had tons of cherry tomatoes last year from 2 grafted plants I bought at the garden centre, we couldn't eat enough of them xx

    That's funny, normally raspberries are the weeds..I've got them sprouting up all over my flower beds and in my lawn lol. I agree tomatoes are definitely good value, we had quite a few cucumbers as well last year - but I want to grow these in the allotment and use that spot on our patio for growing salad leaves (in a tiered lean to) this summer..exciting stuff!

    Unfortunately, after coming to terms with the cost of the wood involved, weed control fabric, shed, cold frame and manure..I've realised that I'm actually going to have to fill the raised beds I've planned, and the dirt is going to cost a fortune :-/

    I read that this should be 60% top soil, 30% compost and 10% vermiculite. Anyone know where I can get this stuff shipped to me cheaply/for free in bulk?

    Monday

    B 2 eggs and a creamy coffee
    L 2 sausages
    D Low carb tuna casserole (basically cauli rice fried with mushrooms, leeks, 60ml of cream and a tin of tuna)
    S Almonds 50g, tomatoes 26g, KP salted peanuts 25g, 4 babybels and soya milk for tea.

    MFP: 1622kcal, 14g carbs. F 75%, P 22% & C 3%

    Tuesday
    B 2 eggs
    L Tuna casserole
    D 125g tin of smoked mackerel in sunflower oil, with 50g cucumber & 26g baby plum tomatoes.
    Little bottle of Rioja.
    S Almonds 50g, 2 babybels, pepperami, 25g salted peanuts and soya milk for tea. 30ml semi-skimmed milk.

    MFP: 1682kcal, 16g carbs. F 72%, P 24% & 4% C.

    Weds
    B 2 eggs
    L Chicken tikka salad, with baby leaves, fresh grated beetroot, tomato, sesame seeds and a tbsp honey & mustard dressing (had no mayo )
    D Burgers, homemade with finely chopped pepper, leek and mushroom, 250g swede chips, 1 tbsp mayonnaise, 1 tbsp Jok & Al low carb ketchup (how could I have missed that this was 3 times the carbs of Heinz One Carb? *sigh*)
    S Almonds 50g, 2 babybels, pepperami, 25g salted peanuts and soya milk in tea. Also semi-skimmed milk tea, made by colleagues (really must stop saying yes to them making this for me, as this was 5.8g carbs in the end)

    MFP: 1374kcal, 36g carbs. F 59%, P 30% & 10% C.

    Once again I didn't check the carbs per gram for the swede before I gobbled it. I knew the portion of chips looked too generous, I think I just wanted to be greedy! Ah well, I had a few carbs left over from Mon/Tues, so not a complete disaster.

    I have a cholesterol check tomorrow morning, so no more food for me tonight (no problem, as I am stuffed!) I haven't had an issue with it yet, but high cholesterol runs in our family so I like to keep an eye on it. I know eating fat helps us to loose weight on this diet, but I still can't help being a little nervous about all the high fat food I've been eating..it'll be interesting to see how the results come back. I'm not looking forward to the needle though, I have a habit of passing out when they take blood!

    If you google search a documentary called fat head it has some fascinating info about cholesterol, including that women are never ever helped by cholesterol meds.

    Mine has always been low but make sure you get the full breakdown of hdl, ldl, triglycerides not just a total count - I know people who have been told their cholesterol was high and freaked out when in fact it was their good cholesterol that was high while the bad was low.
    dieting is hard. being overweight is hard. choose your hard.

    I think I'll get OH to download this..sounds intriguing!

    It's very misleading to not explain to people the difference between good and bad cholesterol, and how they balance out when they get their results..last time I got a total count, but I will ask for more information this time.

    I don't know what I'll do if I get an unacceptably high result...this is the only way I want to diet....

    Thanks hun, me too!

    Good news is that I didn't faint, yay! I think the 15 minute walk down the hill to my appointment helped by increasing my blood pressure a little, as the needle seemed to be only in for about 20 seconds. I get the results this Thursday xx

    Bah! Phone just died and I lost all that I'd written about the latter part of this week :-/

    Here goes again:

    Thursday
    B None (fasting for blood check)
    L 2 of the above homemade burgers, with tbsp Jok n Al ketchup
    D Venison, with a red wine sauce, leeks, mushroom, asparagus, green beans and broccoli (we weren't too keen on either the sauce or the venison)
    S 20g salted peanuts, 2 pepperami, 60g cheese with 2 spring onions, 87ml Rioja (half of what was left from the recipe) & 120ml semi skimmed milk.

    MFP: 1305kcal, 20g carbs. F 77%, 20% P & C 2%.

    Friday
    B 2 eggs
    L MIM toasted and spread marg and marmite.
    D 3 egg omelette with bacon, angel-delight type dessert (made with banana Da Vinci syrup, whipping cream, cream cheese & sprinkled with cinnamon)
    S 26g baby plum tomatoes, spicy pepperami, 50g walnuts, 60g cheese, 10g Tesco 85% Cocoa chocolate, other half of mini wine bottle.

    MFP: 2447kcal, 13g carbs. F 84%, P 15% & C 1%.

    84% fat! I think that's a new personal record (If I don't post tomorrow, I may have had a heart attack lol). I thought earlier that nearly 2500 calories was pretty hideous..but actually if you're eating chocolate or cake during the day, then chips for dinner with a dessert in the evening..as I used to, I bet you rack up a lot more than that pretty easily.

    I've been pretty good with my exercise the last couple of weeks, I've managed both Zumba sessions and one trip to the gym and this week I've added one roller disco session too. It's looking like I will be dragged to the dollar disco again next week too..

    Today I've been trying to talk myself into going outside to do some gardening chores, but I know that the sun is deceptive and holds no warmth and the soil will be thick and sticky, so I've been having trouble persuading myself. I've spent the morning picking vegetable varieties using my seed catalogues and putting off household chores instead!

    Well I planted the rest of my bulbs and did more essential pruning outside..it's frikken freezing, as I suspected! And I've done the dishes, so I've not been a total wash out today

    We have some great cuts of steak for tea tonight which I'm quite excited about..OH cooks a lovely steak. I tend to get impatient, do something else, and them return to find strips of leather..

    I can't wait for weigh in tomorrow, I think because I had such a good result last week it has set my expectations high - but I've got to remember that a pound is my aim and any more is a bonus - plus I've had a small amount of wine on several days this week.....

    Oh what I would give for a glimpse of the end of this journey..

    B xx
