I spent the day with my Aunt, I collect her, bring her back here to visit shops (today only Whelans Chemist, Superdrug, Boots, Holland & Barrett and Ryman (a stationary shop) then take her back home, usually some “will you just”ing to do, eventually I get to go back home. Sometimes there is a lunch stop, today the shopping was followed by a ‘lunch’ *sigh* There are few places that are easily accessible when a wheelchair is involved, these are limited by my Aunt, and none have Healthy Friendly Food. Today ‘lunch’ was a stop at Costa where she had a massimo hot chocolate and a fruit scone with jam and cream and I had a massimo skinny latte (not sure how I ended up with a massimo latte, meant to get a medium lol) and a Banana & Pecan Breakfast Loaf (delish).
That ‘lunch’ was SO not following the Slimming World Healthy Eating Plan and seems the opposite of the title … we’re getting there though lol
When I finally head home I pass a famous shop … famous for delicious icecream, and cheap sweets! Over the years it has become something of a habit … stopping to ‘reward’ myself for a day holding my tongue, being pleasant and pushing my aunt around taking as long as she needs/wants.
However today … I kept going! Saying to myself “this is not the icecream you are looking for, this is not the icecream you are looking for” lol. It was a little harder to resist than it might have been. I’d slept in, breakfast was a cereal bar on the move, then lunch was the breakfast bar … so my tummy was rather empty!
Tea was a stir-fry, red kidney bean, tomato mugshot & a couple of carrots … whoops! No beetroot!!!
