Can't believe I'm into week 5 already! It's been a bit up and down still making errors here and there. Discovered erythritol which I find much nicer as a sweetener than Stevia (I can't stand Stevia's bitter aftertaste). Not that I use it in much but it's been good to sweeten the peanut butter hot chocolate that I've been making (3 squares of 80% dark chocolate, 1tbsp crunchy sugar/salr/oil free peanut butter, both melted into a mug of soya milk. So good!). Also, hemp seeds! Discovered them too. Unhulled. Really crunchy and tasty.

Yesterday was porridge for breakfast made with rolled oats and soya milk, topped with dried blueberries, dried nectarines, and hemp seeds. Salad for lunch with mixed nuts and seeds, brown rice and kidney beans, then tofu, barley and greens for dinner. Had two hours of pole last night and I'm feeling really fit. My PMT and acne hasn't been nearly so bad either! 😁

Ok, I've realised my 'unintended consequence' (the 3lb weightloss) triggered that button in my brain that I always have to be aware of...the One that says 'oo, the number on the scales has gone down, keep eating less!' and it's triggering that feeling of restriction and a desire to eat my bodyweight in cake. At nearly 40 my teenage eating disorder still makes itself known once in a while. Note to self: This is not about weight loss, this is about supporting my body and brain!
Breakfast today was overnight oats (made with a mix of soya and oat milk), chia, camelina and hemp seeds, plus raspberries. And a cup of Whole earth no caf barley & chicory (having given up caffeine in June and actually stuck to it I don't see why I shouldn't be able to shift my attitude to food).

Still trogging along. When hubby was home a few days ago he bought a wholewheat seeded loaf so I've been working through that since he's gone back. I don't feel great though tbh, achey and tired even though I'm sleeping plenty, so wondering whether just to drop the modern wheat variety completely. Have spelt and farro grains on the shelf, as well as scotch (unpolished) barley, quinoa, rolled oats and brown rice. Also bought some buckwheat and millet recently, so it's not like I'm short of wholegrains. Bread is an easy go to and I eat it in favour of other stuff that might provide a better balance of nutrients. I'm going to finish the loaf (hate waste) and keep the bread/modern wheat to a minimum from here on. Unintended consequence of current eating is that I've lost 3lb. I guess that's a positive, not that I was overweight but if there's slightly less of me for my knees to support then that's good :)

Being 100% honest and paying for my 'night off' when I ate at Prezzo, so reporting a 'No for accomplishing goal.
