Thumping great big headache of doom

Thurs 8pm glass of smoothie made by my friend and delivered! It comtained strawberry, kiwi, beet root, carrot, cherries. Mango and maybe something else. Tasted yummy

7. Bowl of sausage casserole
12 peanut butter, glass of smoothie
12.45 bowl of mince and veg stuff I found in the freezer and don't remember exactly what was in it!
19.00 chicken wrapped in bacon, couple spoonfuls rice and peas, mixed veg, roasted broccoli, three baby tomatoes
Think there was more peanut butter in there somewhere too. Need to find a better snack thing to eat. Went to bed early with headache

9 porridge with banana and strawberry. I know I'm trying to stay low carb, but this was really all I fancied
12 last of the smoothie
12.30 3 rashers of bsck bacon and two egg omelette with cheese in too
15.00 spoonful of peanut butter

Think I've struggled with this headache and frustration - couldn't pack kitchen stuff cos I didnt have any tape. Not I have tape, but have lost enthusiasm. Have packed other useful things today though, and cleared out various things to give to folk at church tomorrow, etc.

Day 2

8.30 bowl of sausage casserole (yes, I eat odd things for breakfast! )
12.15 bowl of stir fry (yesterday's leftovers) I put out all that was left. But only ate half.
15.30 ate the rest of the stir fry
17.00 spoonful of peanut butter, rest of the juice from yesterday
17.20 3 rashers of back bacon and two egg omelette with cheese in

It was an ok day. Felt pretty positive, but a headache hit about half ten, which I'm sure was a sugar detox headache! Got to see my sister and her baby, and my mum and dad, so we've had lots of fun. I fed them pasta bake from my freezer, so that felt good to use stuff up, but I didn't eat it!
Couldn't face more veg in the evening. I really wated bread or chocolate! Something to get my teeth into, so I thought I'd try bacon and eggs. I'm not really an egg fan,and was fed up of the omelette by the end, hence having bacon too!

Still got the evening to get through, but feeling pretty full. If I'm feeling snarky later, I have some yoghurt, and some frozen banana and strawberry I can add to it. Or a smoothie which my friend made and dropped off for me :)

I'm determined to get healthier. We all went to the park this afternoon, so not as much walking as yesterday, but a walk and some time in the fresh air

Giving up eating rubbish for lent - Day one summary

7.00 glass of homemade juice - cucumber, carrot, apple, pear, lemon
10.30 as above
11.30 babybel cheese
12.00 Small pot of butternut squash soup (I took it out the freezer earlier thinking it was stock for my sausage casserole in the crock pot, but it turned out to be a small portion of soup!)
12.30 bowl of stir fried onion, courgettes, aubergine, asparagus, little tomatoes. And some tikka chicken on tipping
14.45 dessert spoon of peanut butter (and another one, and a piece of cheese. Need to get some just peanuts peanut butter for more healthy snackage)
16.30 Bowl of sausage casserole sauce! (JJ stole most of my sausage, but I had the tomato and other veg and chickpeas bit as a soup!)
20.20 Crust of wholemeal bread, toasted, with melted cheese. (Prob not the best choice, but better than suger or chocolate)

I'm pretty happy with my choices on the whole, I did a lot of walking and being on my feet this morning in the gap between dropping Sophie at nursery and picking her up again. I thought about meals, but snacks probably need more thought. The cheese I used today wasn't low fat, and I probably overdid the peanut butter! Also, I'm a bit disappointed I had bread, when I'm trying to be low carb, but I decided that one slice of that was the best choise available!

Tomorrow I want to try to stay off the carbs. I have juice, stir fried veg and sausage casserole leftovers in the fridge, so that's a good start. Getting out for some exercise would be good too. At least the walk to school and back in the morning would be a start, although it's my morning off (M usually takes Soph on a thursday) so maybe we'll walk to the post office later on...

I think I'm going to do best eating little and often, so I will try to continue that method. Previously I've had something like cashew nuts on hand for a mini snack, but cant do that now we know JJ's dreadfully allergic!

I havent weighed in, partly cos the wii fit is packed, and partly cos I just really don't want to know right now, I just know it's far too high!
