As you can see, I'm extremely honest with everything I'm eating and it's showing me just how much I feel I've let things slide a little, I guess with being sick still I'm not being as careful, still doing pretty well but not quite as well as I'd like. I'm having wayy too much dark chocolate but at least it's better than normal chocolate but I can tell I won't have lost anything this week but never mind. Sorry the posts are so boring, some of you may find seeing someone elses food diary good and some may find it boring but I don't really have a lot of motivation at the moment to post much else!


  1. Shell, please keep posting your menus, I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates them. You are a very inventive and creative cook and you have given me some great ideas! Pesto & zucchini omelet filling, for instance, fried kumara skins, keep it up! I need your inspiration to make my food more interesting! And I hope you're feeling better soon, you've been sick way too long.

  2. Thanks Judith, I'm glad it's helping someone with some inspiration. Yes I have been sick way too long, on my second lot of antibiotics now so cross fingers I'm better soon. At least I have an appetite though :)
