For one day only - pigging out after the blood tests
Posted Mar 19 2009 3:02pm
I’ll have to go back to dieting after today because (a) I have to wait a week to see if my blood is ‘blood lite’ or ‘full fat, high sugar’ - till I have passed the the NZIS MA’s satisfaction, I can’t be too silly with food - I don’t want to be the cause of us not being allowed to emigrate. (b) I still need to lose weight anyway.
Now that the plan is to go in September I could get down to a decent weight (just at the high end of okay) by then if I try really, really hard.
So what’s in the pictures? Breakfast: Special K bar (in the car, after I no longer needed to fast) follwed by two hot cross buns in the office. No spread in them as I didn’t have any with me.
Mid morning: someone brought these in to the office - banana and malteser muffin. It was rather heavy and stodgy - not as tasty as the muffins I make!
Lunch: pasta with spinach and pinenuts (and oil - most of which Ileft at the bottom of the container - not a low-calorie lunch!)
Mid afternoon (really shouldn’t have needed it): hot cross bun and three sweets
Dinner: Jacket potato & mince (half with carrots, half as bolognaise) I cooked the potatoes in the combi-oven - the fisrt time I’ve used that function in the three years or so I’ve owned it. They came out really well.
