9:10pm  Vegetarian chilli + apple

Wasn’t actually hungry and hadn’t intended to eat again but I kept thinking about eating and this chilli is so very yummy. It feels like I’ve given up my diet having accepted that it’ll be another 30+ weeks to lose my remaining weight.

I’m also eating to warm up as the heating doesn’t come on until 5pm and I get fed up of tea and hot chocolate. I guess I’d better start putting the heating on during the day, especially since snow is near.
