This post is in progress and will be updated

Exercise: 10 mins aerobic warm up, 20 minutes Pilates, 5 minutes stretches

Had an extended birthday break from exercising and diligently healthily eating. My weight is no worse, one pound down in fact, but my back is aching and not improving; I need to be doing Pilates exercises, they really do keep it in check.

Hello everyone! Glad to be back. I'll catch up having a read of all your diaries when I've done my workout :)

I hope you had a blast on your birthday! One pound down sounds good to me!

My last day in this decade :)
Breakfast: 1 apple
Lunch: Remains of curry and rice
Dinner: Just had some toast and marmite - am making cakes (that I won't eat any of) to take to work tomorrow. I'll eat some proper food later on.
Drinks: water, soya shake, organic pretend coffee, herb tea

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 17 lbs to go!

GOod Evening!

trishpiglet3 on 11/03/2008:
I am indeed and am currently making cakes (containing milk so I can't eat any) to share round at my workplace :)

skinnyjeans on 11/03/2008:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I knew someone was having a b.d. on the 4th and now I have to wish you a belated b.d...... Happy B.D.!!!!!!!!

trishpiglet3 - Sunday Nov 02, 2008

Weight: 157.0

Sunday 2nd November Breakfast: 1 sharon fruit

Lunch: 1 bumper veggie sausage sandwich (wholegrain bread, vegan sausage, carrot, celery, tomato, organic brown sauce - I have to report that this was amazingly yummy)

Dinner: Home-made Dhal, home-made sweet potato curry, wild rice, brown rice, poppadoms (home cooked and spectacularly mis-shapen), home-made raita (plain soya yogurt, cucumber and fresh mint leaves)

I made a LOT of curry but was sensible enough to eat only one plate of food - anything that I or Mr Trish didn't eat is either in a tub in the fridge for tomorrow's lunch or thrown away. I wonder why I often make too much food? Am from poor family background but surely that should have made me alert to making the right amount and not wasting? Mr Trish's joke is that if I'm cooking for 9 people I should pretend I'm cooking for 2.

Oh and drinks: the usual :)

Love, best wishes and good luck to all of you xx

Saturday 1st November
Exercise: 10 minutes aerobic warm up, 20 minutes Pilates

Breakfast: 1 orange.... then 3 oatcakes, 1 with tomato tofu spread, 1 with peanut butter and 1 with soya cheese and soya spread (problem being I'm now not hungry enough for lunch!)

Lunch (late): Spelt pizza base with tomato sauce, garlic, basil and pine nuts. Spelt wholemeal filled pasta (filled with veg). Salad leaves, tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil.

Pizza bread before I put it in the oven - there would have been a picture taken after it came out but I burnt it a bit

What I ate in the evening: Popcorn (lots), Doritos (some), 2 fairy cakes (small but sugar-packed) - again, this is not dinner (we were at a party)

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 17 lbs to go!

thinnside40 on 11/01/2008:
I haven't made a tortilla pizza in a while... Usually use the flourless... Tasty!

Have a great Saturday!

trishpiglet3 - Friday Oct 31, 2008

Weight: 157.0

I was supposed to weigh on Monday but I got impatient. It looks like this healthy eating and exercise works :) Am 3 lbs lighter than I was at the start of the week

Of course my weight will fluctuate throughout the week and throughout the month so this might just be a variation of that kind but let's see whether those 3 lbs appear to stay off or whether they come back.

My eating today has been random and unhealthy, so not all good news. On Fridays it's my turn to come into the office early in case someone rings the helpline - I rushed and didn't pack a lunch (also mis-timed and got in at 8:15am when 9am would have done fine)

From work I joined friends to see a film (new James Bond film) and we didn't go to dinner first hence I was really hungry and hence more mad eating (hard to find healthy food in Leicester Square). I have my own bad planning to blame for the low quality of food eaten today. Am less worried that it will put weight on me than that I've missed out on the opportunity to eat good food. And I'm not hungry now. But there will be a chance to eat healthier tomorrow :)

Breakfast - hastily grabbed apple (I really should vary the fruit)
Lunch: Vegetarian sushi, beetroot and carrot chips, nut and seed bar
What I ate in the evening*: 1 sesame red bean pastry from Oriental Delight, 1 medium popcorn (sweet and salt mixed up in layers)
Drinks: Water, herb tea, pretend coffee, a cocktail from the cocktail bar (1 measure of gin, fruit juice and ice - so cold that one of my friends offered to hold it for me while I drank it so it wouldn't hurt my hands; I have Raynaud's which means my hands and feet don't like cold)
* I am under no illusion that this constitutes a meal

ETA: Just before I went to bed I ate 3 cherry tomatoes and they were lovely

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 17 lbs to go!

thinnside40 on 10/31/2008:
Hey Hey 3#'s is great!..... Just keep doing the right things and it will stay off, thus another lower number soon to follow......

Any Halloween celebrations or parties for you tonight?

trishpiglet3 on 11/01/2008:
We are going to a party where there will be the option of wearing fancy dress.

We held our own a few years ago and I seriously misjudged with what I chose to wear. I came as the corpse bride with my eye sockets blacked out, my skin and hair purplish, a grim veil and entered the living room with my eyes closed and holding out eyeball-shaped gobstopper sweets in my extended hands while giving a low moan. There was silence.

I opened my eyes and all our friends were there dressed up to look a little bit spooky, a little bit sexy.

Even Mr Trish recoiled from me in horror although he has since claimed that he hadn't wanted to risk getting face paint on his own costume.

Wednesday 29th October 2008 Walking: Very long walk to find where I had to go for job interview. Got there early, though :) Also did stairs instead of lift/walking up escalator etc.

Exercise: 10 minutes aerobic warm up, 20 minutes Pilates

Breakfast: 1 apple

Lunch: Carrot and salad leaves sandwich, cherry tomatoes + a fortune cookie!

Dinner: We ate out this evening :) I had Dhal, tomato rice and a vegetarian curry called Avial.

I adore Dhal and need to work out how to make it as nicely as they do in the restaurant

Weight: 160.0

Tuesday 28th October 2008

Walking: To station this morning, long walk at lunchtime, up and down stairs and escalators etc. And we had a fire drill :)

Breakfast: 1 pear, hastily grabbed

Lunch: The remains of last night's shepherd's pie and some salad leaves - this wasn't enough (I had intended to pack more food but was in a hurry this morning and forgot) and I was hungry again quite soon

Dinner: Home-made soya cheese on toast, home made pea soup =>peas, water, avocado, spring onion [= scallion], garlic, celery, fresh mint leaves, cucumber, 1 avocado

Dessert: Healthy(-ish) apple crumble

Drinks: Water, organic pretend coffee with soya milk, lemon and lime herb tea

How I made the pea soup Boil the peas till cooked but with some bite, drain off most of the water (I put it in a separate container and drank it, in case it had vitamins in it), put peas and remaining water in blender, add all other ingredients (yes, raw!) and blend

Pea Soup and Apple Crumble - the latter is depicted under construction and before cooking

Love, peace and good luck to all xx T

That pea soup sounds interesting!

Maria7 on 10/28/2008:
Please pass some of that apple crumble over this way across the big pond. It looks and sounds real real good!

Hoping you're having a nice day today! Smile!

trishpiglet3 - Monday Oct 27, 2008

Weight: 160.0

Weighed myself today and my weight is exactly the same - 160lbs. This isn't a big surprise as I've only been doing this properly for a few days. Glad no more weight has gone on.

Monday 27th October 2008 Walking: Walking to train station this morning, using stairs instead of lifts and walking up escalators, went for a long walk during my lunch break (and discovered there's a health food store in the shopping mall that's a bit further away from where I work)

Exercise: Aerobic warm up and 20 minutes Pilates

Breakfast: 1 apple

Lunch: 1 sandwich made with vegan cream cheese and herb salad, 1 large carrot cut into sticks, 1 tomato

Drinks: Water, organic pretend coffee with soya milk

Evening meal: Starter: Home made soya cheese on toast. Main course: Veggie Cottage pie => Vegemince, tomatoes, thyme, basil, carrots, swede (= rutabaga), onion, garlic, mushrooms, celery, stock, cinnamon, agave nectar. All topped with mashed potato and garlic. Served with salad leaves.

I think I made the pie too tasty. Mr Trish is currently having a lie down from over-eating.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

skinnyjeans on 10/27/2008:
YUM...that pie sounds delicious! Keep up the great diet and the pounds will melt away!
