  1. Day 20. 10 hours sleep and I woke up not even remotely hungry. Had 101 errands and chores to sort so ended up doing a whole day fast. Not by design but it felt kinda good . So my one meal today was roast beef with roasted potatoes, Parsnips, carrots, celeriac and red onion.
  2. Day 19. A very very cold Saturday here in Wales but I was surprised to find I was not hungry at all... at any point in the day. Still the good news is the snaps and cracks I get in my neck when I turn my head have pretty much vanished, just a bit of crackling still. My weird hip pain I get in the night has been ferocious the last few nights and I'd quite like that to abate a bit. Jeans felt a touch looser again today, still not brave enough to get out the next size down to try. Thai pork curry left overs with mushrooms. Baked sweet potato with lamb mince and tomatoes on slaw wit
  3. Day 18. Still going well. It was very cold here today and that seems to make me hungry. Luckily I had all sorts on hand to keep me on track although I probably had too much fruit . My jeans are much looser today so I'm definitely going to try the next size down tomorrow. breakfast - smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, tomato, avocado and some mayo lunch - hard boiled eggs and mayo. Grapes, satsuma and banana Snack- another banana Dinner - bell peppers stuffed with lamb mince and assorted diced veggies. Roasted new potatoes with mayo. I made a fresh batch of mayo today a
  4. Day 17. I don't know what it is but I'm loving this W30, I'm not missing anything at all. I wouldn't want to be this strict forever but I do think I need to make my full time diet W30ish. That means a slow steady reintroduction when the time comes. I'm still not feeling tiger blood but I also haven't felt tired or hangry at the start of the 30. Breakfast - full on fry up of bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms and crispy yummy potatoes. Donner - pork Colombo curry on courgetti
  5. Day 16. Its been an eat all the things sort of day. I think its because I have just been really cold all day. I still had my three meals, its just that they were BIG meals. Don't feel bloated or overly stuffed though so perhaps I just needed to eat a bit more today Meal 1 ranch salad, guacamole new potatoes and eggs Meal 2 cod wrapped in bacon, 2 satsumas (yes definitely needed more veggies here) Meal 3 ranch salad guacamole and smoked salmon.
  6. Oh this is so interesting and very much of the moment. For me personally I've managed to move away from that mental sabotage and learnt to be far kinder to myself. Going in to this, my second proper W30, I focused on how amazing I felt last time and that I had to do it just to recapture that feeling. If I should fail, I think I would be able to say, oh well day one again tomorrow. I'm 50 years old and have been dieting solidly since I was 19. I can't keep failing at diets and beating myself up when I fall off them. With W30 I eat the way I like to eat, I cook no differently than usual and
  7. Still here, still on plan and still happy. Day 15 today so over the half way hump. Had a yearning to jump on the scales yesterday as my jeans felt loose! I didn't, all is well dear reader but I'm contemplating trying on a smaller size tomorrow. I feel great, can't say tiger blood us upon me yet but I bounced out of bed this morning full of beans. Oh yes, sleeping sooooooooo well, a good solid 8 hours a night and waking up feeling great. Last W30 I had issues with my bowels all through but this time I'm pleased to say it's all regular. My 18/6 IF is also really getting established, I eat be
  8. Day 11. Not much to say really, work was quiet and a bit boring but it didn't lead me to snack which was good. No prepped veggie sides left and I was lazy so I know I didn't have nearly enough veg today. Hey ho it's the weekend and I can spend time prepping tomorrow. Breakfast - salmon fishcakes with avomayo Lunch - repeat breakfast because they were so yummy Dinner - lamb stew
  9. I'm a keen prepper too, kinda ran out of prepped things today and it made putting together a decent balanced meal a bit of a chore. Food shop tomorrow and an afternoon prepping and I'll be back in the swing.
  10. Day 10. One third of the way to my 30 but I already know I will continue beyond 30 so who knows how far along the path I am? I ate a lot of my favourite things today so I'm feeling suitably satiated. Breakfast - scotch egg, tomato and a big dollop of my fresh batch of avomayo... nom nom nom. 3pm - almonds, cashews, walnuts and some coconut Dinner - Thai red curry with prawns and courgetti
  11. That's what I did with my cod, it had a crust of ground garlic cloves, fresh thyme and salt. I drizzled it in olive oil then baked it in foil. To be honest it was even better the next day as left overs as the garlic had really worked it's magic overnight.
  12. Day 9 wow nearly a third of the way done! Feeling hormonal today, cramps, headache and generally tired and cranky. I wasn't craving sugary stuff like I usually do though so that's good. I made Scotch eggs today and man they taste good. That's breakfast sorted for the next three days, and they are enormous so will keep me fuelled. Need to make more mayo tomorrow and I went to town on the last of the avomayo today. I added some Frank's to it and it was goooooood!!!!!! Breakfast- cod and egg scramble with avomayo coleslaw Lunch - scotch egg with hot n spicy avomayo Dinner - R
  13. Day 8. The hormonal hunger has passed as I thought it would, typically I'm 50 years old and really beginning to understand my body signals just as I'm going in to menopause!!! I only had 2 meals today as I really feasted on meal 1 and still felt stuffed when I was cooking meal 2. Meal 1 - leftover roasted veg with fried eggs and a big dollop of avomayo. Banana. Meal 2 - pork stir fry with cashews and sesame seeds
  14. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is day 7 done. One whole week and it's honestly been a delight, I've felt fine, not particularly headachy, not particularly tired and not very grumpy at all. I'm just loving eating 'properly' again even though it's not a million miles from how I eat usually. The only difference today is that I think I might have had a glass of wine this evening but I'm having sparkling water instead. Wins for the week for me are 1) choosing to use a side plate for all my meals and keep my portion sizes down and 2) a very surprising lack of desire to graze and snack. I say no
  15. I'm a fraud I'm afraid, I married a Welshman and he took me home with him I'm from the glorious town of Brighton on the south coast of England, about 250 miles from where I live now. that said I've lived in Wales for half my life now and even speak a few words of Welsh so I'm 'almost' Welsh lol
