just found your log. Sorry you have been feeling down recently. Hope your starting to feel 'yourself' again. Can I make an observation (I ask for permission, dont wait for a reply then proceed anyway - haha?! Even for someone trying to lose weight (which I heard you make mention of) you are not eating enough, by far. You need some protein and fat first thing to get the mind perked up. honey and lemon first thing, get the metabolism kickstarted, good for your tummy, help elease some seratonin (the happy hormone) etc. If you want more info on anything just say. You can eat to be happy and put you in a kick ass frame of mind.
Love the wee community on this log.

I am feeling better again, thanks.
I don't know if I am not eating enough. I see all the 'do calories count?' threads and get so confused. The sizes of the meals are standard, so I am eating pretty much three square meals, no snacking. And when I try fiddle with the macros I worry about calories by slathering in gratuitous fat and it is hard to argue with meat and veg instead. It gets confusing. I like eggs for breakfast for choline and protein, and then I think meat and veg plus fat by way of avocado, cheese or cream in sauces. It is so hard to know but all my meals are decent size, promise.
Honey and lemon first thing sounds good though!
This community is great. Thanks for your input and support.

B: large black coffee, bacon and scrambled eggs
L: lamb cutlets, roasted tomato, caramalised balsamic onion
D: (this has a name but I forget it - a "sauce" that goes with pasta) onion, garlic, crushed tomatoes fried up, add tuna and peas. Was going to try it on zucchini strips, but couldnt be bothered looking up method so had it spooned into baby cos lettuce leaves instead. Yum!
Grey's anatomy final tonight. Can't wait, though I suspect nothing will stop the finale where a killer stalked them in the hospital. That was heart stopping.

That is an Italian sauce, sometimes you throw in capers or olives. Name is on the tip of my tongue. In this weather a pasta substitute would make it feel more hearty than lettuce, let me know how the zuc. pasta goes.
Glad you are out of your funk

Yes, an Italian recipe. yummo
B: bacon (not much) and scrambled eggs, large black coffee
L: grilled salmon and steamed cauli and brocolli
D: filet mignon (rump steak wrapped in bacon and smothered in sauteed mushrooms), sweet potato chips and peas.

Sat - bacon and eggs then due to social engagement lots of red wine and cheese and chocolate
Sun - bacon and egg and cheese muffin (hangover) made a lamb leg stew in slow cooker Sunday had beef and chutney sandwiches for dinner, not great, still hungover
Mon - salmon and mashed potato with rocket and parmesan for lunch, stew for dinner
Tues - eggs for breaky, steak and eggplant and zucchini for lunch
Didnt eat for 30 hours as flu/cold/virus hit me like a truck and was in bed all that time.
Today I had cheesy omelette and then kiwi fruit, then got enourmously hungry for comfort food. I hope this means I will be ok to work tomorrow.
Oh, and thanks to cough medicine, my flea-wash smelling pee is back! Thought you were curious to know.
So sick of being sick...

Love love love pan searing then oven finishing steak. Like over easy eggs, it is a food revelation.
I like the new series about Kerry Packer starting World Series Cricket and Puberty Blues. Trying not to get hooked onto anything else with the season change.
Things looking good with a man, trying play it cool
