9:40am Cheese and ham salad sandwich + fresh coffee
I bought some cheap tomatoes at our food shop yesterday to bulk up my sandwiches. I originally took three slices of ‘ham’ but returned one.

1:45pm Egg mayonnaise sandwich + cinnamon swirl + tea @ Starbucks
I thought twice about having a bit of Frank’s cake seeing as I had eaten a pastry, cake and biscuit yesterday. But, from the first mouthful, no regrets. It was mega fresh and was just an explosion of flavour from the cinnamon and citrus in the icing. I think a whole one would have been sickly.

On the way home from our meeting, I popped into Tesco to get some Quorn beef-style bits after only remembering during the night that Tesco sold them, not Waitrose.
I’m gonna use them instead of the Quorn chicken-style pieces and mince. The beef-style pieces have a better flavour and texture than either. I bought six bags plus some doughnuts for Frank.
Afternoon drink: pint of fizzy squash
5:15pm Tomatoes, beans and mince with dumplings + orange

8pm Apple and cottage cheese snack
I hadn’t expected to eat again but I was hungry.
8:50pm Ham and cheese snack
Unfortunately, eating earlier made me more hungry. I was distracted by thoughts of eating. It probably didn’t help that I was watching Jamie’s Ministry of Food.

But now – urgency over – I feel foolish, wondering why I just didn’t have a tomato. *sigh*

Bum. At this rate, I’ll have put on weight by Saturday. I now know from experience that I put on weight if I eat 1,600 calories a day or more.
The average this week so far is 1,340. Hmm, maybe still time to fix things.
