  • ITA with G about sunblock. changing the subject slightly. i found a recipe for salmon scotch eggs. cuisine mag and it used smoked and fresh salmon. i dont really like fresh salmon very much there is flour and breadcrumbs in the mix too so it would need a tweak or few.
    Salmon scotch eggs with cured salmon recipe from Cuisine Magazine not to mention inventive cooking to then keep it altogether. i have wrapped venison mince scotch eggs in bacon to hold them together. it occured to me on my walk that you can scotch egg anything really. so maybe, just maybe, i should try some paua!!

    • Hope everyone is doing well.
      I am around, just not spending as much time online. Scales are moving down for me again, so I am happy.
      Ive worked out the right amount of food that my body needs, so am feeling good.

      I bought myself some nice pretty pink nike frees today, my old ones were prob 2 years old and so worn out, and finally managed to get pink ones, which I have been wanting for ages. They keep putting out new colours all the time.

      • I'm lurking more than posting these days, too. HFLC didn't work for me - again. I lose weight, lose bloating, and lose the will to live. The rebound when I start carbs again is bloody awful - my mood goes up, I feel fantastic, and then the bingeing starts. I'm coming right again now. When will I ever find a balance????????

        Apart from that, things are good! I feel guilty for this, but am loving the long dry. It's usually humid here, so this heat has been wonderful.

          Ayla - well done on the pink frees. I'm not really a pink sort of a Gwamma, black is my colour - but good for you. Always a boost to get out there in new racy stuff
          Hiya Jac - long time no see. I hope you are up for all these partys that are being organised. Remember you and I are the wingmen !!!!!!!

            i totally hear you here. what i need to do is get some self discipline and carb cycle. my problem too is i exercise too much so if that gets hard, it is no fun. and since the brain is the weakest muscle, unless i am about to pass out, which has happened, i keep going. and then the whanau wear it. my life wears it. one would think if i have enuf self discipline to exercise, i would have the food bit nailed. and regardless of whatever else goes on, the will to live is really very important.

            i am loving the heat too but the hills look like a biscuit. there is no grass left for all the sheep. i can wash my dishes and flush my toilet once a day. i cant wash clothes or shower at home. and the hotter it gets, the more the horse drinks too. so yeah. a very very hard one. i think i love the land more than me getting this much sun. but OMG i can even swim in the sea in my bikini. just being able to go for a snorkel in the sun without a wet suit is quite revolutionary down here.

              you dont really come from the shore do you? i love black. black cars, black motorcycles, black eyeliner LOL my 12 yr olds fave colour is black too.
              how hard wearing are the frees A? said 12 yr old wanted a black pair. i can kill a pair of barefoot trail shoes in under a month so the nikes look way too decorative for me. i could get into a funky coloured pair tho provided they have black in there too.

              • I normally hide behind black these days, but I just badly wanted pink shoes, no idea why really.
                My youngest son got new nike frees last week, and he chose pink

                Its so humid here right now, its disgusting!

                Jac that is really crappy
                did you try to increase the carbs gradually to try to work out the best level for you?

                • this carb thing i find interesting. Alot of people find low carb easy and good - and I have to say that I was great for about 2 weeks. Then I noticed some tingling in my feet - no idea why, then some horrid sores on my face, then DH said you are SOOOOO GWUMPY - ALL THE TIME
                  ................. so I really had to rethink the whole thing. I tried the oil shots too which really suppressed my appetite, but then read somewhere that this new lifestyle has got to be sustainable. Why do all this shit if I can't do it for the rest of my life ??????
                  .......... so thinking turned into major experiemntation.......... and on............... and so forth
                  I upped the carbs a weeny bit, as in I added a carrot to my salads, and noticably felt better each day that I did this
                  then I added an apple - felt even better and finally a potato with the evening meal. In the past adding carbs has caused binges, but this time I increased very slowly.
                  The other problem I am having is the milk/cream/cheese. After consuming any of these products my gut starts clenching and I get heaps of a-hem typw mucous in my throat.
                  I might have to investigate this once I get the carb balance right.

                  • I love the frees. I used to wear vibrams all the time, for running too, I did my half marathon in them. They took a bit of getting used to at first though. Both my boys have them, but for school I got vivo barefoot school shoes for my oldest. He gets to wear his nikes on sports day which is Wed though.
                    I went to nike frees after I gained weight, as I just wanted something little under my feet, more so for if I land on a rock or something being so heavy, I am sure it will be way more painful than if I was lighter. I will go back to the vibrams eventually.

                    • Thats it G, you upped it slowly to work out your right level, that is the best way I think, rather than jumping into more.
                      Its funny how VLC works for some and not for others, but its just like everything right?

                        Nah, I kept trying til I exploded . It took a night of very little sleep, followed by a fairly stressful day and staying in a hotel. I started with the biscuits at morning tea, progressed to coke at lunchtime, then finished the day with 1/2 bottle of pinot noir. Since then I've downed iced tea, packets of lollies, and a V. The V was the worst idea ever - I shook for about 24 hours. Mind you, that was the catalyst for getting a grip!

                        NOW I'm trying to be gentle with myself and ease into moderate carbs.


                        Edited to add that I'm planning to try on some of the barefoot shoes when I'm in the US in May. I have them saved to my Amazon watchlist, and will look up where to find them when D day gets a bit closer. Some of them look really cool!

                        • Oh dear
                          Maybe try again but gradual this time. I hope you can deal with the bingeing soon, I feel so free now I don't anymore, but it took a long time.
                          good luck x

                              I so hope that poor man was dead before being mauled. I honestly couldn't think of anything worse..............

                              • Ooh, black is my favorite color also. And pink is one of my favorite accessory colors. Black boots, jeans, black sweater or coat, black sunglasses, pink gloves - love the look in winter. I always have to have a light in my closets because 90% of what I own is black. It also makes it easy to match things. When I worked in Manhattan, from the top of my head (french twist) to the bottom of the black suit skirt, I looked like a banker. Then add red tights and cowgirl boots.

                                Mauled by a shark. Ouch. Sea, baby, none of us wants to see you as shark food. Have a burger. Go to Gwamma's and eat a dog. LOL. Just don't get sharked!
