Day 6

Meant to get an early night last night, but made mistake of staying up and watching a Rick Stein programme about German food 🙂 Roast ham hocks and sauerkraut looked mighty tasty. Will put on menu for next week, along with these tasty morsels I found on NomNom: Lamb dosa purses. Not quite sure how they are ‘dosa’ – look more like koftas or dolmdos to me, but who cares if they taste good!

Needed some new inspiration, so have ordered a Paleo book I’ve been meaning to get for ages. It covers Whole30 and I don’t think it’s padded out with fake-flour ‘paleo’ muffins and the like.

Going to pick up some snacks I can have during the week, to make sure I’m eating enough and to keep the cravings at bay while I’m travelling. Thinking some biltong will do the trick, but no decent biltong to be found in or local area. Tried the Unearthed version from Waitrose (too dry for me) and Sainsbury’s own (just tasteless). Will just have to get an order in from Uncle Larry.

11:00 and the latte called, but got caught up in work stuff (nothing exciting, just a sandwich delivery for a meeting – drama!) which meant I made it to lunchtime without coffee 🙂 Smoked mackerel and beetroot salad with dill mustard dressing. Yum. Treated myself to a post-lunch coffee after a long walk around campus searching (unsuccessfully) for a bar of dark chocolate.


Squeezed in a half hour of running before dinner; leftover cold chicken and roast beetroot with peas and beans, and roast sweet potato.


No more than 1 latte a day = Achieved

Go out for a run 3 times a week = 2

Limit alcohol to 7 units a week = 4 units total
