An over thinkers guide to life, Puggles, family and so much more

Overthinking is a nightmare. Due to a back operation I have too much time on my hands and too much time to think. This is how I deal with it and survive

How is my diet going

To be honest I have been too ashamed to update you. Well really what has been the point as I haven’t really been dieting. Again I blame the puppies. We are shattered. So food is our only comfort.

Tonight I have had fish, chips and mushy peas.

I think maybe I will try again tomorrow to be better.

How is my diet going today


It was all going so well. I ate soup and had a yoghurt at dinner time. I was starving at tea time. I wolfed my tea down and then had some min chocolate chip ice cream. I knew I shouldn’t but I am a weak individual.

I also have signed up for graze boxes they are healthy snacks and tasty. I have subscribed to 2 boxes a week and they did help me last time I tried to lose weight.

I walk miles at work. I think so anyway so i have charged my Fitbit up and going to see how far I do in a day. Me and my boyfriend are shattered at the moment. It’s those damn puppies. They are tiring us out. We are going to have a power nap and get up at 12 for another feed. I blame them. I am going to be good when they go in 6 weeks.

Check out graze there are loads of snacks to choose from

How is the diet going ?

I start off with good intentions

How is my diet today. It was ok till I got home

I had done well today. I am no good at eating breakfast. So I waited until about 1.30 and had a big bowl of the leak and potato soup I made on Saturday. I haven’t shared the recipe yet but I will when I have time. I also had a yoghurt. It filled me up and I was fine until I got home at 6 pm.

I was bloody starving. I needed chocolate and I needed it now. Do you ever feel like that? So I had 2 chocolate rolls. They helped but I was still starving.

I made a chicken and bacon and leak bake for tea. It wasn’t really diet food but it was good and I have been reasonably good today. Except the chocolate rolls and the nobbly bobbly ice lolly I have just had.

I haven’t had the best day, but it could have been worse. I am moving in the right direction, I think.

Just made chicken and mushroom soup – here is how

We had chicken for tea. There was only a small bit left on the bones. I put the carcass in a pan of water and boiled it for approximately 1 hour. After it had simmered I let the water cool and then picked all the bones out.

I was left with chicken stock and small pieces of chicken in. I blended the chicken until all the chicken pieces blended into the stock. The consistency was slightly thicker than water.

Next I added 1 table spoon of corn flower and;
A slice of white bread.

JI then added 1 tablespoon full of garlic paste and some Italian herbs and garlic Powder. Next I added half a tea spoon full of ground black pepper.

Finally I added I chopped up 10 mushrooms and fried them and added to the mixture and blended them and added a dash of Worcester sauce

The soup is a cheap starter or a dinner time snack at less than £1.50.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.


1 x chicken carcass
1 x litre of water to boil away
1 x tablespoon or cornflower
1 x slice of bread
1 x tablespoon of garlic paste
1 x tablespoon of Italian herbs
1/2 teaspoon or ground black pepper
10 x mushrooms
1 x dash of Worcester sauce

too judgmental

How is my diet going?????


You can probably tell from my pictures not very well. I am ashamed to say it has been a week of take aways and cakes. It has been bloody good though.

It’s been a hell of a week. I have been tired and work has been hell. All I wanted to do was go to bed when I got home let alone cooking tea. I have also been paid this week so been able to splash out a bit.

This is all over now I am going to eat better and loose some weight. I know you have heard this before. Excuses excuses excuses I hear you mutter under your breath, but watch this space I hope I won’t disappoint you.

Going to check out now as my stomach is rumbling. I am going to resist junk food.

I used to buy graze boxes as I could eat the treats instead of junk food. I am going to sign up again

yesterday I wore something from 5 years ago that fitted

Don’t shop on an empty stomach

I always do this. If I shop on an empty stomach I come back with loads and spend a fortune
