Hmm,

I suppose I could have put it as an S day. But I think for me it is better to mark all unplanned eating etc as red. Even if I feel it is justified in some way. Otherwise I am very likely to start taking liberties.

Successful Wednesday and Thursday.

Sweetcorn is finally really cheap and plentiful. I think this time last year I was on some Low carb malarkey and avoided it. Yum.

Breakfast- porridge, banana and yoghurt
Lunch - peanut butter and spinach sandwich, tomato, Apple
Dinner- sweetcorn, chicken, salad, barley, apricot, banana (huge dinner, oh well)

I am still doing 5 min of Italian every day, just not writing the menus.

Yay for page two and enjoy that sweet corn! Your dinner doesn't look big to me esp since most of the food is on the light side.

Have a great day!

Is that a peanut butter and raw spinach sandwich? I'm trying to picture it...

Oh, sweet summer corn! Yum!

I wrote a whole reply about the sandwich but it doesn't look like I posted it. I think the moment has passed.

I had a tough weekend and then was sick on Monday. Back on track today, with the eating at least...

So be it. Thanks for all the typing, and I will take it that it's not time for me to learn about this exotic sandwich. : )

Sorry about the rough waters plus not feeling well on Monday. Hope March improves, and good to know your No-Sing was on track today.

Wow, my motivation was suddenly just...gone Sad

I think it's because I've been off colour? I was like, what's the point? I'm fat anyway.

But, this system is the right thing to do for me. Maybe I should actually read the book?

Onwards and upwards.

Thank you Queenie! Back on track now I think. Although hard to tell because it's the weekend!

Hmm need to work out some better strategies for when I get down.

Feeling Soo much better. Thank goodness. So, what have I learnt? Well I was sick, but it wasn't in bed with a fever sick or throwing up sick. I mainly felt really really tired. So, I thought I should stay on plan. But then I didn't and then I was just WTH and off on a bender.

Soo, next time I am sick I would be better to really have S days then when I am better really have N days.

Pretty much on track. Maybe I should take the fruit bowl off the table at dinner time because I do tend to take a piece of fruit after dinner when we are sitting around talking.

I bought the book! It's pretty good Smile

successful Wednesday, more or less. I need to put my piece of fruit by my dinner plate at the beginning of the meal and include it in my visual assessment. I'm apparently not going to stop eating it without significant effort.

That is brilliant. I will aim to follow your advice when I'm sick.

Sick days are S days. I believe it.

And N days are really N days. I like that.

I like how you recognize your habit, and you're making it part of your N-day. You're respecting your body (which clearly wants its piece of fruit) and you're respecting your commitment to No-S.

Success. Mussel cream sauce on rice tonight. Yum. I finally worked out to get the pliers to pull the mussel beards out instead of getting sore fingers. Now I might start cooking them more regularly. Cream sauce may not be the best default?

Success Friday and Monday. I'm sure this is good for my teeth and any dietary changes I might make in future will be easy to keep track of. But I do wish I was getting slimmer. Sigh.

I think a bit of cream is OK - this isn't a low-fat diet - it's just three meals No S. I keep my fat pretty low generally - and too much refined wheat will push my weight up (flour, pastry, pizza, bread).

I've probably said this before, but I almost always have a piece of fruit with each of my three meals; I don't put it on the plate - it's just not a big deal, but it feels 'right' for me and healthy and a little bit sweet I guess - but it's not a big sugar-sweet thing - it's mostly water - it's fruit!

I have been away from home for more than 2 weeks. I did use no S as some sort of structure but didn't think to come online.

I have decided against screens at bedtime too so may not check in so much as I often did that in bed at night....

Fail last night. The whole Friday night wine vibe made me think it was fine to have an extra plateful of chips then a banana. Now I have regret.

So I need to be extra careful on Fridays.

Hi Kate,

I've been on vacation (last week) and just haven't been visiting the forum as often lately.

But I wanted to say Hello.

Thanks gingerpie.

It's 6.40 pm, my OH 's cooking night, but he isn't home yet. I am starving. This is usually when you would see me standing up in the kitchen eating out of the peanut butter jar with a spoon. I am sitting in the living room drinking miso and browsing the boards. So that's a win.

Cool

Eek. Failure on only my second day. Which means I have to write out everything I eat. So boring to do! But this will be my disincentive for going crazy once I have broken the rules.

B eggs, tomatoes
L egg, beetroot hummus, almonds, carrots, beans, celery, tomato
Fail: some kind of homemade Indian sweet baking that had been left out at work for us to eat. I was tired and fed up...
2nd fail: ate the rest of my lunch in the car on the way home. Almonds and an Apple
D prawn curry
3rd fail: still hungry after dinner, ate more almonds, because I couldn't think of anything else.

Prevention- a mid afternoon walk would have been a better choice. Also serve up more for dinner.

I've been enjoying my weekend. But eating standing up on impulse doesn't feel right.

Ah well. I will see how I go next weekend.

It's hard to stop the snacking. So today was a fail, but I kept in mind I would have to write it all out. I was home all day, as was my teenage son who had a cold. I felt a bit out of sorts.

B mushrooms, feta, sweet yoghurt. I had eggs planned but I was too full
Snacks - 2 hard boiled eggs and some almonds
L haloumi and green beans. More yoghurt . 3rd egg
Hot chocolate in the afternoon
Miso soup - I am ok with miso soup as a drink late afternoon. Sugary drink like hot chocolate is more problematic.
I decided to have book club snacks for dinner instead of dinner. Carrots, cucumber, cheese, almonds, crackers

Fail today. Which is my second Monday in a row I've had trouble with. The rest of last week went well.

Today had
B Chia Bircher with coconut cream, figs and nuts
L eggs, fried haloumi toast

My plan was to eat the book club snacks as my dinner. But I didn't last. Had the leftover breakfast about 6pm. At book club had 3 glasses of wine, mussels, stuffed picantes, crackers with dips and cheese, 2 chocolates, nuts

A very Low vegetable day too. i am craving vegetable soup.

Ha, must have forgotten to click submit on my last post. I am struggling because I have had a few days of poor sleep and Low mood, which makes my decision making less than perfect. It has just dawned on me there may be a reason for my troubles. I am being tested for coeliac and I have been back on large doses of gluten so the test will be valid. My symptoms started about 5 days after I restarted the bread.

I find this comforting, because before I was thinking "I did not know I hated my job that much! And why only this week?"
