Day 243: Irritable. Grr.

Posted by Paola

By the way, I switched to my size 14 jeans earlier this week. My four pairs at size 16 – bought only a couple of months ago – are now much too big around the waist. I’m more annoyed at wasting money by buying so many than pleased with the smaller size, since I bought three pairs at size 14. And my wedding ring is too loose and moves around and it’s annoying me. When I got married in 2002, I had trouble getting it on.

2:40pm  Cheese salad sandwich + tea

I left it too long to eat and was ravenous. I resisted getting a piece of fruit at the start.

5:45pm  Bean, corn and tomatoes with dumplings + pint of fizzy squash

A new batch! I was disappointed that I didn’t have more of the beef-style pieces. So, besides the tinned tomatoes, garlic and aduki beans, I added sweetcorn, courgette, red pepper, apple and a chopped up vegetarian frankfurter.

I have friends coming over for lunch tomorrow. I only decided what I’d be cooking at 8:40pm this evening in the car on the way to the supermarket. I also have more cottage cheese and yoghurt. Phew.
