Back on SW week 1

Well, my re-boot this week was slightly unexpected so I had lots of things planned at the weekend. Friday as I've already mentioned, I was off out drinking. I did drink but was not tempted to snack.

Saturday I planned to have a takeaway with the boys; we did, but we ate far less than usual. I had more chicken starters than pizza and we didn't feel hungry!

Sunday was a treat meal out for us, and I wanted a steak. So I had a steak. No pudding thought.

So to counterbalance the three nights out, I went on SP overload this week! Monday, porridge (which is normal), dry tuna and lettuce salad with boiled eggs, turkey with mashed carrot/swede and greens for dinner. Tuesday porridge, turkey leftovers, spag bol with lentils in, and runner beans instead of the spag. I've been eating lots of apples too. Today's lunch was the last of the turkey plus for dinner I'm having more lentil bolognese with green beans tonight. I've had a snack of ham and peppers this evening.

I have found this week easy so far and have refused sweets, cake, crisps, ice cream and yogurts in the staff room. Yes even chocolate birthday cake!

I am so motivated at the moment. As I've only been "on" SW for half a week, my loss will be approximately 3lbs but I'm dead chuffed with that considering how much I ate at the weekend! I think this may be the way for me to continue. I'll update this tomorrow at weigh in and see how things work out.

I did have a headache today and yesterday (hence the snack earlier). I hope this doesn't continue. I'm also on decaf tea by mistake so that might explain it!

Next week: my mum's birthday. (Steak out? Afternoon tea?)

I have exercised this week and have planned in another walk/run session when the weather is warmer. Onwards and downwards!

A walk from Portchester Castle to Salt Cafe

Well we just had to choose the worst day of the year to walk. The date had been set weeks before - who knew there would be the worst winds of the decade almost on this very day? But we didn't want to be beaten. We will walk to the cafe. At least it wasn't raining! Parking is free next the castle and obviously, it wasn't busy this day! We set off around the outside of this medieval monument. The sea wall affords views across to Portsmouth and Gosport, and Portsdown Hill if you look behind. You can see the Spinnaker Tower in my photos, but you'd have to zoom in. The sea wall leads to a walk along a path, switching between grass (a much more sheltered area) beside a playpark, and the beach. It is an easy, flat walk, made slightly harder in the wind. After 1.75 miles, you reach the Salt Cafe (@saltcafe66). This took us one hour - that wind did slow us down! I've had a breakfast bap there before and remember it being delicious, but slightly expensive. But today, we

Would I Lie To You board family game review

Would I Lie To You? "The game of believable lies and unbelievable lies ", linked into the TV show of the same name. Purchased:  December 2017 in Waterstones, for around £20 In a nutshell: These TV show-affiliated games usually show themselves up (Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Top Gear) but this game is fun and easy to play (if a little modified) as a family. You don't really need specialist knowledge to play, just the ability to lie! Every year for Christmas, I like to buy a board game to play, even though no games better either Ludo (in which my dad is the reigning cheater-champion, and argues to high heaven over the rules about doubling up or how to place your counters in "Home") or Rummikub (which we can now play with two packs of cards lest we forget the game). This year, Would I Lie To You caught my eye in Waterstones (other emporiums - emporia? - for book lovers are [locally] unavailable). It's a game, it says, for 2-8 players; however we dec

Ms Humdrum reviews: B Afternoon Tea Bus Tour around London

Family and friends, tasty tea, cute cakes, succulent sarnies, scrumptious scones… what more could you ask for? Some sightseeing around Central London please. Oh, and on a vintage red double decker bus, if you don’t mind. What I’ve described is exactly what you get from the B Afternoon Tea Bus Tour. Priced at around what I paid for the Ritz afternoon tea some five years ago, you rock up at Victoria bus station and check-in to board the bus. The waiting staff guide you on and you find your booth. I manged to get a photo before anyone arrived.  The tea is set up for you and is sort of stuck down on the table with a little bit of material! Note the nice touches of the flowers adorning the sides of the bus and the tables with natty bus and shopper images. You settle in and order your first (of many) drinks. I had in my head that I’d be supping loose tea using a strainer out of a bone china cup and saucer. However that just isn’t going to work on a bus, I realise. So you are given
