Jen's daily blog

I decided I would do a daily blog to track my progress and keep myself motivated. Please feel free to read my ramblings....or not!!

DAY 1 -

Breakfast - porridge
Lunch - mushroom soup
2nd lunch :D - choc milkshake
Dinner - 2 Peppers stuffed with bolognese topped with cheese

Drinks - Black tea x 2, water 2 litres ish.

Feeling good today, not as tired as usual, which might have something to do with being hydrated for a change. Struggling with all this water! :eek:

Hey Jen - like the sound of your dinner - Im going to try that one !!!

Breakfast - porridge
Lunch - vanilla shake
Second lunch - chilli food pack ( yuk didn't like this one)
Dinner - roast chicken with carrots, beans, broccoli and cheesy leeks

Drinks - 1.5 litres water and 2 cups of black tea

Had a harder time today, very tired. Not on track with my water intake but OH suggested getting a soda stream to make fizzy water fun!!

Roast is now on. I am doing roast pots and gravy for OH, but not too bothered. Just wish it would cook quicker.......mmm roast :)

Hi Jen,
Thank you for sharing, I love to read what you are eating on LLL.
My group will start on the 14th of September.

Breakfast - porridge
Lunch - chocolate shake
Snack - fudge bar (nibbled on this all day)
Dinner- Slow cooked lamb with roast carrots and courgettes

Leg of lamb, outside fat removed, handful of crushed garlic cloves, chopped onion, cherry tomatoes, handful of rosemary, salt, pepper and glass of water. Cooked in the slow cooker for 9 hours on low. Threw in some potatoes for OH, but picked them out of mine!! Also made some mint sauce.... It was lush, didn't miss gravy at all.

Drinks - 3 tea with milk (couldn't work out how to get dairy into a lamb dish!) and 1 litre of water so far

Spent the day at Dunsford air show. It was good fun and it kept me occupied so I didn't really think about food. I only nibbled a bit of meat when OH came back with a hog roast baguette with apple sauce!

Thanks Summerscream. I used to do slimming world and got inspiration for recipes from other peoples food diaries and blogs.

I noticed that there were not that many recipes for LLL so I thought I would post what I was making and how I made it (if it was complicated).

Good luck on the 14th xx

Breakfast - Vanilla shake blended with half milk allowance and a big handful of ice. Came out like a MacDonalds milkshake......nice!
Lunch - peanut bar (made this last most of the way round the shops!)
Afternoon - veg soup
Dinner - steak seasoned with S&P, big salad and dressing made with 3 tsp olive oil and big splash of balsamic vinegar

Drinks - 3 teas with milk, 1 litre water.

Really struggling with the water, got to get my hands on some of those flavourings on Thursday. The rest of the diet is going well, not really hungry at all today!

I have been a bit emotional due to TOTM, OH has driven me nuts all day!

Hey Jen - hope things going well for you still, ur doing good. Ive been off the wagon for a few days but back on track today & feeling more positive. Had yummy prawns in salad for dinner:D
Trying to get all my water in as well.
What have you been eating?

Hi Jen,
I decided to start my LLL journey today instead of the 14th. I don't know yet what to cook tonight, so I had a look around. How are you today?
Day 5

Beakfast - porridge. Made with 1/2 milk from allowance
Lunch - Chicken soup. Had to add salt as it was a bit boring
snack - Cranberry bar - stuffed this all in one go as it was so yummy!
Dinner - fish with pak choi and bag of carrots!!!!!

Drinks - tea with milk x 2 and at least 3 litres of water

TBH I am not sure how I survived day 5!!

We went out for my cousins 18th. I had been really organised and checked out the menu before I went so I knew exactly what I was going to order.

We met at the restaurant at 7, ready to eat at 7.30. Unfortunately some people got stuck in traffic so we didn't get any food until 8:45 :( In the mean time, people were ordering garlic bread and nibbles, which I resisted.

When we finally ordered they didn't have the dish I wanted so I ended up with a tiny fish fillet and the smallest portion of veg I have ever seen!

Then came the birthday cake, which I resisted! Shortly after this we had to leave as I was so hungry I was going to eat my own arm!

On the way home I managed to get a bag of carrots from a garage, sort of 1 meal but split into 2!

Drinks - Not really kept track of this today. Probably not as much as I should, but I have had loads of tea!!

Strange day today. Got up with no real plan, but ended up in Ikea buying a new bin! Then an old friend stopped in for a cuppa on his way back from Cornwall and stayed for a good couple of hours. I was so occupied that its nearly 8pm and I still have another sachet to fit in!!
I've lost 6 pounds as well :), although the first few days were very, very hard :eek:
It is a little bit better now at day 5 but ..:rolleyes:
