    I've had a similar day. Too many carbs at work really settled on my chest.

    3 chicken breasts have redressed the balance somewhat.

    I probably shouldn't have had the fudge tbh - it wasn't as if I was tired or hungry - it was just there while I was grabbing the water. Lack of will power!

    I enjoy this thread, interesting reading about eating habits and good repartee. For myself I eat a lot more fruit, porridge everyday, have cut down on bread and eat smaller portions.
    2 x bananas
    1 x orange
    2 apples
    I read some were that high potassium intake can greatly reduce a risk of a stroke(all other factors being equal) and lowers blood pressure.
    However am partial to a bacon sandwich but tend to reserve that when working, a bit difficult to blend into a south London café ordering a bowl of muesli.And I can recommend some great cafes but don’t have your cholesterol checked afterward!!

    Depending on the time I have developed a number of timed routines with a kettleball. 5 minute, 10 minutes etc. Not certain if the exercise gurus would agree that 5mins doing kettle ball exercises(warm up always 5 mins skipping) does one good but if time is tight I think something is better than nothing. I bought Royce Gracie superfit book a while ago and picked up some really good routines using a medicine ball amongst others things.

    Got to sign off the trouble and strife has just brought in the Fish and Chips(The only time I have salt on my food, well you have to!!!). The only thing to look forward to tomorrow is regretting this when I am on the rower!!

    I have to admit that I miss toast and toppings as a quick and easy breakfast/lunch snack. But that said, since changing diet, I've had no acid reflux issues and been able to halve a prescription anti-acid drug that I was expected to be on for life to keep a hiatus hernia in check. So bread is a rare luxury in small quantities for me.

    Once I've got my weight (and excess fat) right down I will experiment with introducing more carbs, and porridge and home made flap jacks are high on the agenda as possibles!

    I'm still a bit wary of high potassium foods, a hangover from the days when 1/ a banana would mean no other fruit or veg that day.

    I agree with you that something is better than nothing. In fact I'm a fan of regular sustained slow low heart rate exercise with only very occasional intense bursts. I apply this to my use of weights, bodyweight, and physical drills.

    Every time I read about your homemade flapjacks I start to drool! I love flapjacks! :)

    Mmm, pecans. They grow like crazy here in Houston.

    What are fishfingers? Are those the same as fishsticks?

    Fillets of cod (in this case) packed together and frozen, sliced into finger lengths and coated with breadcrumbs. Fish sticks over here tend to be reconstituted mashed fish.

    But are you a thin and crunchy or a thick and chewy girl? :Angel:

    Frodocious She who MUST be obeyed! Moderator Supporter

    Well now, that would be telling wouldn't it...! :evil: :Angel: :D









    Actually, it rather depends on my mood, but I think I'm more of a thick and chewy girl than thin and crunchy, but I'd never turn either option down! :D

    John Titchen Still Learning Supporter

    Thought so. :) :Angel:

    These are the thin crunchy sort, but I normally make them thick and chewy. I'm going to play with the recipe to make them nutty.

    Are the brownies as good as the flapjacks? :)

    And when you say white tea, do you mean tea with milk or white tea (as opposed to black or green tea)?

    Normally the brownies are superior to the flapjacks, but recently I've been playing with the recipe to try and reduce the sugar and flour, and they're just not as good. I'm finding the flapjacks too sweet too. :(

    It's been a bad week so far. I'm feeling absolutely burned out. Only seem to be grabbing about 1 hour off work each day (excepting eating time) between rolling out of bed and climbing back in. :(

    Oh, and tea with milk.
