26th June – Ok, not the best, but some good choices.

So today hasn’t been the best, no exercise at all, instead I’ve sat around and melted! I can say though that food choices could have been a lot worse!

Popped round to see my mum this afternoon, and my sister and her children were there.  It was so lovely seeing them!  We’ve seen the kids only once these last few months, and that was through a window.

Some of my onion plants look more healthy than others, feeling rather proud of those green shoots! I can’t believe I haven’t killed all my plants off 🤣. My herbs still aren’t showing any growth, other than basil.

As I’ve nothing else to tell you about, I’ll get on with the daily info.

Sleep – not too bad for once, only up 4 times.

Fluid – 200ml of milk, 200ml pineapple juice, 1 cup of tea, 1 can Pepsi max, 4 glasses of water (over 1.2l) of water so far, I’ll be getting another glass shortly.

A note on the water – I’m drinking still bottled water which is flavoured. It’s supermarket own so it’s cheaper, and I really like it. I can drink this water quite happily, whereas I struggle with council pop (tap water), even if used with squash/cordial.

Exercise – no, none today. I honestly feel like I’m melting today.

Food – ok, so we haven’t been totally on the ball today, but we’ve made healthy choices… on the whole.

I asked Paul what he wanted for breakfast, his answer? Fry up! So, baring in mind we both need to keep engaged and motivated to keep going, I cooked a fry up.


It was just under 500 calories!

We had turkey rashers not bacon, turkey sausages which are just as enjoyable as pork sausages, mushrooms gently cooked in olive spread not butter, egg fried in a couple of squirts of 1cal spray not oil, 1 slice of seedy bread not 2, spread with olive spread not butter.

And I left some of mine, not much but some.

As breakfast was late, we then didn’t eat until dinner. Again, not the healthiest meal, but much more healthier than fish supper from the chippy. Oven cooked chips, peas, onion rings (wanted the nearly empty packet out of the freezer) and lightly dusted sole.

I left half the chips.

You’ll notice there’s not been much in the way of fruit and veg, mushrooms and pineapple juice this morning and peas this evening. And neither have I had my nuts (as recommended by WHO and NHS), so I’ve weighed off 40g of nuts and 75g of dried fruits each for tonight.

I’ll also have a babybel later as I’ve only had 1 dairy portion and I should be having 3 a day.

So, a failure on exercise and a failure on fully healthy, unprocessed food, but a success on making the day a much, much healthier day than it would have been in the past.

Well, that’s my day, speak tomorrow 😊
