8th June – a MUCH better day!

Evening all, hope you are well.

Today has been a great day, we went on a good walk, just over 5k in 74 minutes!

And food was good too!

For breakfast we had 5 bean baked beans on toast. White bread not brown seedy, but still.

For dinner we had salmon with brown rice, with peas and sweetcorn added in.

Then we had strawberries, there was a teaspoon of sugar, but it was halfspoon, not full fat sugar.

I am pleased with today, the first truly good day in a long time 😊

I wasn’t sure if I would get my bum in gear for a walk today, luckily mum in law helped out there. We had a call from her mid morning as she had problems printing out the work for Sofia, so we had to have breakfast and head over to hers. This made my mind up for me. After helping Gwen Paul and I went to a lake local to her home for our walk.

When we headed back into our town we did our weekly shop, and having decided we’re going to the coast for a walk tomorrow, we picked up some goodies too.

I’ve prepared sarnies for tomorrow, one cheddar and chutney and one creamy blue cheese with cured meats. Not the healthiest, but made with healthier brown, seedy bread and olive spread rather than butter. We’ve also picked up a scotch egg and pork pie each, but we’re also taking natural nuts and dried fruits. Oh, and a light chocolate mousse each! For drinks we’re taking some water.

I’m really looking forward to tomorrow, there is something very special about looking out into empty vastness. Makes me feel very small and insignificant, but in a good way. It’s good to know that in the grand scheme of things, any personal issues mean absolutely nothing.

So there we are, that’s my day. I’m looking forward to posting tomorrow, hopefully I’ll have some nice pics for you 😀

  1. So pleased that you’ve got your mojo back Jo!! I love seedy bread. When I was up against it financially, I bought the cheapest Aldi wholemeal, but now I feel I can justify the good stuff. So much more taste than normal bread!! And it’s also harder to eat – needs to be actually chewed – and it’s more filling – so you don’t eat as much!
