(low fat and walking)
Weight: 0.0

Hello all,Hope everyone's doin fine.Went to the docs this morning and I asked her could I start coming every month to get weighed.Think it will give me an incentive to be good ;-).Start properly tomorrow but not been too bad so far.Had some sweet egg waffles :/ when I got in from work.Then lunch was ham and cucumber sandwiches.Using garlic and herb soft low fat cheese instead of butter.Also 1 Satsuma,banana and a small portion of fruit cocktail.I've lifted some turkey mince out of the freezer,but don't think it will be defrosted in time,so poss an omelette and salad.I do suffer with pain in my gut when I do have too much fruit and veg so i'll just fill up on water.Just walked for 20 mins with Alfie,my back was giving me jip so hopefully it will improve in time.The sun is shinning,first time without my coat on this year,making the most of it,as next week here in the UK it could be lashing down :( Little baby steps for now,still got a sore heal but just dealing with it using thick insoles so I may try the gym in the morning after work ,but very slow on the treadmill.Feeling positive which is a good start,bye for now :-)

puddles on 04/20/2015:
Good luck and have a great day.

mcwoo40 on 04/20/2015:
Thanks :-)

biscottibody59 on 04/20/2015:
Enjoy the nice weather while you can. I've been trying to get some sun exposure when I can rather than taking vitamin D. We have been in a drought for about 4 years, so when it rains, it's very welcome and I won't complain:-)

Enjoy your week--hope the pains gradually become a thing of the past for you!

mcwoo40 on 04/20/2015:
Thanks :-)

mcwoo40 on 04/20/2015:
Forgot there was a bowlful of chicken curry and rice left from last nights tea,so had that with a side salad,feeling satisfied :-)

InnerPeace on 04/20/2015:
Hope your monthly weigh ins help you with your plan!

Umpqua on 04/20/2015:
It sounds like you're on the right track and the leftover curry and rice makes a nice healthy meal!

OhioRaven on 04/21/2015:
Give it some stick.

thinnside40 on 04/21/2015:

Hellooo,Been AWOL for a while,been a little under the weather with one thing and another.Having some "Lady issues" and just a couple of more tests next week to see if all is ok.My eating is out of control so need to get back on track before the good weather comes.Everything has to revolve around food doesn't it.Just had easter lots of goodies to tempt you with (if your that way inclined!!)My brother's 50th tomorrow so we are going out for a meal :/ and when u have no willpower it's even harder work.Still got the sore heal.Two other people at work have it and they are way thinner than me,so I know it's not weight related,but it doesn't help.Bought myself some 'comfy' shoes,jeeze I am getting old!!On the food front,i have some oranges that need using up and an apple so I'm going to juice them,used the juicer for a while then ended up in the cupboard gathering dust,but if I have too much can give me gut ache.Any good juicing recipes will be much appreciated.I'll be back later,when my day is coming to an end,bye for now

puddles on 04/08/2015:
Welcome back.

Umpqua on 04/08/2015:
Welcome back and I hope you get to feeling better!

biscottibody59 on 04/12/2015:
Hey there--so nice to see your post. Hope the tests go well for you and don't end up cramping your style too much.

I need to do the same with my juicer--carrot juice is refreshing to me with just about any other veg or apple added.

Enjoy your week!

thinnside40 on 04/13/2015:
Hope your week is off to a good start!

Hello,Another good day yesterday.Fifteen minutes walk in the afternoon.Evening meal was turkey and mushroom curry with broccoli.Really enjoyed it.This morning did a little extra on the treadmill 20mins,and did a little extra walking with doggles twice round the fields instead of the once,the ground was rock hard,icy ,which was playin havoc with the heal.Put some stewing beef onion and leek in the oven,peeled some carrots and potatoes,and going to roast some parsnips with that, smells devine.Just come in from a twenty minute walk,lovely and sunny but nippy glad no snow hate it.Have a great day everyone :-)

BellaK on 02/04/2015:
Good job with the exercising!

Umpqua on 02/04/2015:
Your foods all sound yummy!

Morning all,chilly one here zero degrees when going to work.A change of menu last night for tea.Got to the fridge remembering I saw some cottage cheese, when I came to it ,it had Novembers date on,oh dear think I need to clear the fridge out more often.Was glad really wanted something warm and satisfying,Found a packet of garlic mushroom risotto.Just add water and stir now and again for 15mins.Added some more chestnut mushrooms more flavour I think than button ones.Also some celery and leek lots of black pepper yum yum.Took the insole out of my work boots and my foot seemed a little better but still not right.Managed 15mins on the treadmill 150 cals burnt.Came home did the girls sandwiches,Had 2 slices of bread low fat garlic and herb soft cheese with a slice of ham.Took Alfie out for 20mins ,quite fast walking too.Now I'm drinking a cappuccino there unsweetened and I just add sweetner,my treat.So that's my morning so far,I'll report back later :-)

museumgirl on 02/03/2015:
The risotto sounds really delicious. Hope your foot heels. Love the name Alfie for a dog, I suppose? We had a Golden with arthritis, and walking did seem to help him stay limber. have a good day.

Umpqua on 02/03/2015:
Sounds like you had a great day yesterday, keep it up!

Hello all,foot still painful despite having some paracetamol.Tried the treadmill this morning but very slow only for ten minutes.Knew I had to take Alfie for a walk so didn't want to do too much(twenty minutes with him)moderate speed.Had a sore heal about two yrs ago together with a verucca :-( took a while to go used thick insoles which I'm doing now,went to the docs he wasn't much help.Anyway foodwise up to now ,had 2 large oranges ,a banana sandwich, sliced roast pork with a thin layer of apple sauce for lunch.Time to take Alfie for his other walk.It's a nice dry sunny day here,and no wind and 5 degrees.Doing well here not to get snow yet compared to other parts of the country.I'll check in later,not too sure what is on the menu for tea,need to start planning meals,ta ta Enjoyed that walked about 15mins on the grass whilst he ran,then walked around the perimeter of the field so all in all 25mins put my good sturdy walking boots on.Alfie was diagnosed with arthritis about four months ago as he had a limp that wouldn't go away.Started him on some glucosamine and green lipped mussel both for joints he's a lot better .He has anti inflammatory just in case but didn't want him to be on them long term,touch wood he's a lot better and no need for painkillers for at least two months.Well thinking of tuna,cottage cheese, fresh baby plum tomato. cucumber and a little coleslaw for tea,and yoghurt  and grapes if I need to(hunger pangs :-D)Well going to finish off the hoovering,keep busy,bye for now

puddles on 02/02/2015:
Take care and wishing you a good day.

Umpqua on 02/02/2015:
It sounds like you're off to a great start. I hope your heel starts feeling better and you're wise to take it slow there!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/01/2015:
my mom always said that saying...bull in a china shop ;) i am like that too, especially at the gym!

mcwoo40 on 02/02/2015:
Think that's where I got the saying from,or my nan :-)

thinnside40 on 02/01/2015:
I had Plantar Fasciitis (http://www.heel-that-pain.com/plantar_fasciitis/) in my left heel for a few months... Very painful. Look forward to seeing more from you.

Jezebel on 02/02/2015:
I have heal spurs on both feet. 12-15 years ago they injected both heels with a steroid(?) shot (it hurt- I won't lie) and had me off my feet for 3 days (that came as a surprise) and after that I was good as new and never had to have it done again. It was SO worth it. But they never claimed it would last forever. Some people have to have it redone every few years. Just be prepared to miss a few days of work if you work standing on your feet all day. Belated Happy Birthday wishes.

Yo dudes :-) Well hopped on the scales yesterday morning and have a 7lbs loss hoorah.Over endulged the day before massively but knocked the cals back without being too stupid but have exercised plenty to limit the damage.Well my bite is less itchy thanks to the tabs and ointment but still looks hideous on my face.Usual salad and cereal but teatime i did some mushrooms leeks garlic sliced chicken and some tinned toms and lots of black pepper yum yum so here's to another new week, i'll get to comment on diaries later going to pick hubby from work,don't you just feel like a taxi driver sometimes,back soon take care :-)

hollybelle on 09/12/2012:
Oh, that bite must be painful! Congratulations on your loss! That's wonderful. Dinner sounds great. RYC the taxi thing - well we just burn up too much fossil fuel over here! We haae too many cars. My next goal is to be able to ride bike to and from work without much trouble! Ha!

V on 09/12/2012:
Congrats on your loss! Great job Mcwoo :)

biscottibody59 on 09/15/2012:
