Did you treat yourself to Easter candy? If so, what kind?
Well this hasnt been the best weekend. But I am away, so food isnt my top priority, even though I promised myself I’d make better food choices. I did make ok choices, but some of the food I ate was fried, and so not the healthiest. Anyway, I’ll tell you what I did eat on Friday and Saturday.
Breakfast was scrambled eggs and toast. We didnt eat a lunch since we were traveling, so we had an early dinner, for dinner I had a cajun chicken wrap, with salad, and fries. Then last night I got a chicken and stuffing sandwich, and a fruit salad. Drinks on Friday included coffee, tea and some diet coke, and one bottle of water.
Today Saturday I ate a light breakfast, it was two wheetabix and two slices of toast. I didnt eat a lunch again today and instead I had an early dinner, for dinner I had chicken wings, fries, and then I bought some crisps, and a fruit salad at the store for this evening. Drinks today included tea, diet coke, and some water.
Not sure how it will go tomorrow. I will try to be healthy if I can at all, make healthy food choices I mean.
Butter Rum Bananas
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons light rum
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Grated rind of half a lemon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or rum flavoring
4 small bananas, peeled and halved
Whipping cream or ice cream
Melt butter in a large skillet. Add sugar and water. Stir well. Cook until reduced to heavy syrup, stirring occasionally so the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Add rum, lemon juice, rind, and your choice of flavoring. Cook for 2 minutes, or until golden in color. Remove from stove and add banana pieces. Plunge them into the syrup, covering them as well as possible. Serve warm, not hot, topped with a dollop of whipped cream or alongside scoops of ice cream.
Makes 4 servings.

Well my food log for April 17th was not that great. I mean I did it, I logged what I ate. But to be honest, that wasnt that much.
I never really eat much on my weigh in day. But I did try to eat some small things.
Breakfast consisted of some fruit.
Mid morning, I ate some more fruit.
Lunch was some toast with some spreadable cheese on it.
When I came back from my dr. barry apt I ate a bowl of wheetabix.
I was going to cook dinner last night when I got home from slimming world, but then tiredness overtook me, and I didnt feel up to cooking.
So I just ate some hard boiled eggs and some toast.
Drinks yesterday consisted of a couple mugs of tea, coffee, and 3 500 ml bottles of water.
So that was my day in a nutshell. Not the best one, but oh well. It is what it is.
Another week gone by, time goes so fast. It’s time for me to go and get weighed in. Hoping hoping hoping to be down this week. We shall see. I guess only time will tell whether I’ve done enough this week or not. I hope I have. I’m really hopeful that I’ve done all the right things this week. So please guys wish me the best of luck. Here’s hoping for a good result tonight. I’ll be so happy if I’m down even 1 pound I’ll take a pound. But if I’m down more I’ll be happy to. Hope for the best anyway.
