    I would say "bloody hell" though it is a swear word. Not near as bad as the f word. The strange thing is in Ireland they say feck off and it is not considered anywhere as near as the f word. I was horrified when my young niece kept saying it cos it sounded awful.
    I have never heard the Eric Idle songs, was never really into month python, but it sounds funny.

      Thursday
      Breakfast – boiled egg x 2
      Lunch fried ham, 2 poached eggs and lettuce
      Tea: tongue and lettuce with Caesar dressing
      Snack tablespoon coconut oil

      Exercise 60 minutes Zumba

      Just haven't felt hungry today. Had to force myself to have some tea, as don't want to wake up during night hungry. I really think the high fat diet is helping me with my chocolate cravings.

        Bit disappointed today, the scales said exactly the same as yesterday 148.8lb. I have been getting used to them going down everyday. Ridiculous I know.

        Friday (so far)
        Breakfast – boiled egg x 2
        Lunch 500g salted macadamia nuts (didnt have time for proper lunch)
        Tea: ?????

        Exercise 30 minutes walk.
        Dont do the gym on a Friday as have my intensive circuit training tomorrow. Goona chill.
        Still no coke zero, but this is the first time I have thought I wouldnt mind some. Be gone satan.

          I get impatient too but remember this is a journey...and you will probably never reach the end. Enjoy it!

            Can someone tell me what tongue tastes like? It is one of those things I just can't quite stomach..

              Hard to describe, it is a fatty meat and I love the Taste. I get bored eating ham. I find the tongue more flavoursome. Sometimes though, some foods can give you the heebyjeebies. I couldn't eat things like fishy food in shells - mussels etc. probably I would like the taste buy cant bring myself to eat them.
              There again I can remember growing up that my mum and her family of Irish descent would et cooked pigs trotters. There is no way I could do that either. Yet I will quite happily eat tongue.

                Friday
                Breakfast – boiled egg x 2
                Lunch 500g salted macadamia nuts (didnt have time for proper lunch)
                Tea: bacon rasher x2 egg x1 Camembert cheese with roast cauli


                Saturday
                Brunch - black pudding, bacon rashers x2 and one egg
                Tea - broccoli and leek soup with 50g of Stilton. Melted Camembert with raw peppers, 3 small bacon ribs

                Exercise- 60 minutes circuit training ( very hard work but I kept up while over 50% of class kept having to stop for rests.) The trainer has us doing a circuit then 60 seconds of a wide variety of jumps, sounds easy but I promise it is not.
                Though the sense of elation that I have completed it is worth it.
                Think I may be eating too much cheese. Will cut back tomorrow if I don't like the scales.

                My 16 year old is doing a 48 hr 5 a side football game over the weekend to try and beat a World Record.i went to watch for a bit after he had been playing 8 hrs and there were few hobbling around already. They have a break for an hour every 4 hrs or so.
                I didn't want him to do it, but several of his friends are and when you are 16 you think you know it all.

                  oh yeah. I can't even handle cow's liver. I know organ meat is supposed to be healthy but I just can't manage to try it. SOmeone needs to feed it to me w/out me knowing so I can get past the gross out factor.

                    Sunday
                    Brunch (ate out) roast beef, cauli, broccoli, spoonful of gravy
                    Tea: broccoli, leek and stilton homemade soup with 10g butter, bacon x2 rashers, cabbage with 25g butter
                    Exercise: 30 minutes heavy weights, 20 minutes yoga.

                    Got weighed Monday morning and weigh 148.6. Funny when I weighed 165 pounds my goal weight was 150lb. Now there is no way I am happy with that weight and my new goal weight is 140lb. My stomach is still really big.
                    Still no coke zero, though I dreamt last night I had it by mistake!!!!!

                      Tea - chicken wings x 4 cauli and broccoli.
                      2 tablespoons coconut oil
                      78% fat
                      17% protein
                      5% carbs.

                      Still feeling really full, actually having to force my self to eat. Most unusual experience.
                      Off to circuit training tonight.
                      Great not to have chocolate cravings. Just hoping it lasts.

                          Cant tell you how close I was to having a Reeces Peanut Butter last night. Went and had a couple of spoonfuls of cream instead, but it was close. Think it may have been cos I didnt have any lunch. Unbelievable that I can be so good for weeks then nearly sabotage being in ketosis etc on a whim.

                            I almost lost it with a CW crap hot dog the other day, just because I was hungry (no breakfast or lunch on Sunday). I am leaving shortly for my Wednesday long day, and today I am armed...

                            Send me your all-time-favorite make-at-home tongue recipe, please. I have one in the freezer, and I almost gag when I look at it (it isn't peeled of its top skin layer yet...) even though I like organ meats in general, and I think it is time I did something with it.

                            Hang in there!!
                            I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

                              My god, you dont think I cook it myself do you!!!
                              Oh no, I am a wimp of the first order. I buy it already cooked from the local butcher, so no recipes from me I'm afraid.
                              Actually I have just googled tongue and the images are pretty gross. Mine comes in nice, sliced circles, so I dont even make a connection to an actual tongue.
                              Or I didn't.

                                Confession time. This could be shocking.
                                Wednesday
                                Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs
                                Lunch: Tongue salad, lettuce and olive oil with balsamic vingar.
                                SNACK: 3 PACKETS OR REECES PEANUT BUTTER AND TWO CHOCOLATE BARS. What an idiot I am, when I start eating confectionery I cant stop.
                                Tea: Ribs and cabbage.

                                OK, told myself it was a one off blow out and I am back on the straight and narrow from today. Enjoyed eating the first one but then it got kinda sickly, though that didnt stop me.
