Breakfast: Coco-nutty Granola and milk
Lunch: After the family all made their lunches to take with them to work, we ran out of salad greens, so by the time I made lunch there was less to choose from. I tried out one of the gluten free wraps, covered in hummus, 1/3 of an avocado and a little grated cheese. The filling was good, but the wrap didn't really excite me. Then I made a 3-egg Omelette. Yum!
Snack: Hours of paperwork later, and I just wanted to eat something. So had an apple with some peanut butter.
Dinner: Hearty Mince Soup. The kids say this is reminiscent of a one-pot dinner I used to make often, but without the pasta. It was good :-)
Other Food Prep: Went to the supermarket to pick up some more salad greens and eggs, and found out that they had some good one day specials on, so bought lots of kumara (sweet potatoes) and some tins of smoked fish.
How I Feel: Mostly good. I'm working on getting up earlier in the morning so I can get things underway better, so also need to go to bed earlier, and stick to dietary modifications so I can sleep. Today's dinner was a bit risky, as I put some diced tomatoes in it (being way less concentrated than the tomato paste the recipe that inspired me had). I slept ok, but could have been better. I have a lot of pain in my feet, something that's been an ongoing problem for several years (started with a major car crash). I have a pair of very expensive sneakers that support my feet well and reduce the pain if I wear them all the time. But after I've worn them for my walk, they're too grubby to wear inside; I really need a second pair for the house, but don't have the money right now. The pain makes it difficult to stand or walk for long, and makes getting every day tasks done difficult. It's been particularly bad again the last several days. I'm hopeful that losing weight will improve this, but to lose weight one has to exercise, which means standing. I will not give up!
