Earthlady's Journal, 23 April 2013

Yesterday wasn't a great success as I went to 750 cal instead of 500. I was so cold in the evening and felt really hungry - not quite as bad as the alternative where during the day I'd been on the verge of ordering a toasted cheese sandwich from the school canteen! I don't even like their toasties - bland white bread and bland cheese that's usually barely melted. Thank goodness I didn't!

Optimum nutrition is always on my mind so I waited until I got home and had a poached egg on a small slice of unbuttered wholewheat toast with a helping of "kisir" - a Turkish sald made with wholegrain bulgur and lots of salad veg chopped and mixed in.

I still didn't warm up so I went to bed extra early (9.30) with a hot water bottle and a good book!

Currently reading "Thinking, fast and slow" - picked up at the last minute from the airport in England because it sounded interesting and was being prominently promoted! It's fascinating - all about our thought processes and how so much of what results in action actually happens subconsciously even though we think we're in control.

I have a partial day off today and a full day off tomorrow (to recover from today!). It's Children's Day here, 23 April, so primary children all over the country will be taking part in shows and parades. As a teacher, I have to attend the show at our school, even though today is an official public holiday! That's why we get the day off tomorrow, although the extra day was hard fought for and may be rescinded any time - it was touch and go whether we'd get it this year. I plan to enjoy it!
