Pink's Diary

Thought I'd make an attempt at a diary!

So today I've eaten:

B - oatmeal with water (ran out of milk!)
Sn - vanilla cinnamon muffin
L - Salad (lettuce, celery, radish, tomato, turkey, ham, red cabbage)
Starbucks vanilla steamer (boss decided we needed an emergency starbucks run!)
Sn - chicken and ham
D - Marrow stuffed with mince beef, tomato, onion, mushroom, garlic, topped with cottage cheese.
vanilla muffin with vanilla yoghurt.

Unsurprisingly absolutely stuffed.
I think I need to cut back on the ham as I'm not entirely sure if it is allowed. Also probably slightly over on the oats. I have now managed to buy some proper oat bran after a couple days on oatmeal.

As you can probably tell I have a sweet tooth. Felt a bit ill this morning but I felt better after my muffin which I wasn't planning on eating but then had to see if it would make me feel better which it did.

great idea :D you can always post menus is our daily menu sticky aswell :D
you arent having too much oat/wheat with the porridge and the muffins.
Yeah well I know I had too much today as my OH made my galette and then told me afterwards that he'd used about two tablespoons worth of bran! The muffins are quite small and I only have a tiny bit of porridge (about half a tablespoon) so I think I'm ok most days.

Went to the cinema this evening, everyone go see Inception it is awesome! Anyway, managed to resist the popcorn and sweets and instead stuck to a pepsi max.

B - muffin and vanilla yoghurt
L - galette, roast turkey, cottage cheese, mustard, followed by starbucks (went to lunch with OH and I was cold sitting in the park but wearing heels so couldn't walk far, thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it!).
D - pan fried smoked mackeral with quark, lemon and fennel leaves also finished the last muffin so probably way over on the oat bran which is not good at all.

I will try to be good tomorrow! Not managed any steps today either as our band in a box arrived so was setting that up when I got home from work and it meant the OH was using the wii..........

Yeah I think trying a galette, porridge AND muffins isn't going to be an easy feat AND stick to the oat/wheatbran allowance...

Easiest is to go for one or the other (or the other!!). At least you'll have variety in your week's menus, unlike me cos I adore my muffins so won't deviate for anything in the world!
Really craving a mars bars right now, sweet chai tea will have to do! I only have porridge as I'm always too sleepy to tell the OH what I want for breakfast so he makes porridge for me. And yes it's for wii very fun!
OMG I had a mars craving last night :S :eek:

maybe try the egg custard recipe? could save the sweet tooth or make some of Jo's muffins with sweetener?

good luck!

diet coke sorts out my sweet tooth. especially frozen into lollies. but remember to defizz it with a fork first :D

get lolly moulds and defizz the coke with a fork before pouring it in and freezing!! what a mess my freezer in even though i did defizz it a bit. just not enough!!!!

Interesting idea Vicky! Never tried making them...

I had been somewhat bewildered as to why my jelly moulds were "leaking" - leastwise I had jelly everywhere last night! Then I realised that I'm filling them too full, then putting them in the fridge, and every time I open the fridge, they're "shake rattling and rolling" every darned where!


** Chief WITCH **
Yes... the other half brought me back 10x2 when he came over a couple of weeks ago... I love them!

43p! your country is soooooooooooo cheap! I paid £15 for a salad at lunchtime with tap water to drink!
Been feeling majorly hungry all day today. I need to sort out breakfast as this morning I had vanilla yoghurt and was starving by 10am.

B - Vanilla yoghurt
L - Roast turkey with salad (lettuce, tomato, cucumber, radish, red cabbage, celery)
Sn - slice of ham and glass of milk
D - roast beef with courgette mushrooms and tomato followed by vanilla muffin
Sn - vanilla muffin

I didn't actually feel hungry for the second one but I had to get in all my oat bran. Made the muffins when I got home and made 6 big muffins so I know I can have 2 per day or one and a galette so should be sorted on the oat bran front now. I accidently added loads of milk but they turned out lovely and moist, only problem is they stick to the cases so I think next time I'm not going to use cases and see if my rubber tray is any good!

I survived the mars bar craving, don't know how though!
perhaps rejig it and have your muffin in the morning - I find eating the oat bran before lunch helps with mid morning and afternoon cravings :) especially if you're not too hungry in the evenings... morning could be your craving time?
Maybe, but I love having some yoghurt and muffin after dinner! I am always starving in the morning. I had a scrambled egg this morning but I'm having an injection later so perhaps I'll have the muffin after that.

I think I need to find things I can snack on in work.

Good news though, WI this morning, 2lb gone!!!!! Wooohoooo soooo close to that 11st now!
