Managed to mostly keep food inside me today, always drink plenty anyways and the general modern consensus is to just try and eat as normal as you can as soon as you can, besides... eating low carb means I have NONE of the BRAT plan foods in the house *laughs* nor would my tummy respond well to eating bread... would make things worse!
Got some pre-biotic yogurt, and I love it plain, but then on the reduced section was peppermint extract for 23p... and the idea of a teaspoon cocoa, little sweetener and peppermint to make a pudding was very tempting! So just had that and it was delicious AND it was good for me! I love healthy foods that taste so good.
Am very tired, and rather grouchy, spent most of yesterday reading, managed to read the whole of Slaughterhouse 5, my new boyfriend has lent me some books, quite heavy reading or strange things, but I do like that! After getting through House Of Leaves I feel I can tackle most things! Also have Nineteen Eighty-Four to read (no never read before!) and On The Road by Jack Kerouac, which is apparently quite an important novel.
I also got a copy of a book called Embers by Sandor Marai. This book interests me because (this is a quote from Amazon.co.uk) "The story of the rediscovery of Embers is as fascinating as the novel itself. A celebrated Hungarian novelist of the 1930s, Márai survived the war but was persecuted by the Communists after they came to power. His books were suppressed, even destroyed, and he was forced to flee his country in 1948. He died in San Diego in 1989, one year before the neglected Embers was finally reprinted in his native land."
So should be an interesting read I hope.
Am currently reading the latest Sarah Rayne book, House Of The Lost, her books are dark and twisted plots that bring several times in history together, I like them a lot.
Have got a rather large backlog of things waiting to be read!
Had a recent spate of good charity shop finds, especially the House Of Leaves, and another wonderful HUGE hardback book I got, priced at £18 in shops, 99p in charity shop... was The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear...(Again Amazon.co.uk quote) "Bluebear is a bear with blue fur and 27 lives, 13 1/2 of which he uses up by the end of the book, in a world as far removed from our own as can possibly be imagined - mysterious Zamonia. Captain Bluebear is a German cartoon hero, part sci-fi, part fairy-tale."
Didn't think that was wise reading while suffering with a temperature and mild delusional thoughts from being so ill!! *laughs*

Started feeling poorly and it progressed badly yesterday into tears inducing stomach cramps, am pretty sure I have gastroenteritis again, just thankfully a mild case compared to what I have had before.
Ate a soft boiled egg for breakfast to see, and now I am cramping badly again. Think I will stick to water. Possibly see if my mum has some yogurt as the bugs are good for your tummy.
Glad I am off work.

My cat, Beastie, is very highly strung, had very traumatic experience when young.
She is very bad for using her litter tray to pee in, she pee's on furniture and in desperation I have a very old chair above her tray which I allow her to pee on and this has worked well for absolutely ages.
Now however she has started on my actual sofa, she seems to have done it repeatedly while I was away.
She knows she is in bad books today and has kept her distance from me and hasn't gone near the stripped down sofa. I have put grapefruit peel there and going to try with some ground pepper when I can buy it cheap/bulk.
What else can I do?

1) Maintain swimming once a week.
Easier with the pool being open early during the school holidays and every day rather than just Mondays to the public. So can fit in around anything else I am up too.
2) Lose the 2/3lbs I gained in July.
Eating badly over various celebrations means I am up a couple pounds from whats shown as lost on my ticker. I am thinking I will be honest and put the ticker back down.
I'm not setting it a goal to lose anything more as I will be extremely stressed if I don't manage it, but I am not trying to maintain, so any extra losses will be bonus.
3) Eat 1200 when home alone, eat 1400 when away from home.
I think giving myself some wriggly room might make things a little less stressful when eating at my Boyfriends parents home.

Well, I didn't do very well.
Too many times I have eaten badly, too many times I have eaten ok but overeaten.
Not enough exercise because of the pain of my heel.
Money makes it hard to afford to swim more than once a week and I live at the seaside and its always windy which makes cycling a miserable affair which means I won't stick with it as I do NOT enjoy it.
My weight is a pound of so up from my ticker, but that is, I am pretty sure water retention from eating birthday cake and chocolate... So. Many. Crap. Carbs. Lots of water to try and flush things out and balance.
On the emotional side of food, I have found myself getting extremely stressed while staying at my boyfriends, I am worried about this reposnse as I have struggled with bordering on eating disorders before, and now making myself not eat something, then being so starving I eat cake for breakfast and then feel sick... its not good for me at all.
Im not sure how to relinquish this tight reign I have cultivated.... concentrating on weight loss for over a year and a half changes your thinking, and its not just something you can give up.
I was so upset about not being able to plan ahead what I was eating, then when I could, the meal got changed and I ended up so upset over being served something different.
Way too stressed over food, but if I relax then I start gaining weight.
