Just realised I've been quite silly cos my dinner and tea are basically the same. Beans, cheese on toast for dinner, mexican bean and cheese wrap for tea. At least the wrap has some leaves in it and it's a wrap instead of bread..

Mind's been all over the place lately, having a bit of anxious time of it at the moment but in spite of that I feel like I'm in the right frame of mind to address my weight. More often than not at least. Am feeling quite lethargic a lot of the time and I've noticed that I've been building up much more of a sweat cycling than I used to. Started getting changed at work now, it's been that bad. Am making more use of apps though, calorie counting on here and using the Apple Health one. Downloaded one just for my cycling called komoot. Cos I've been feeling lethargic, when I'm cycling it feels like I'm going forever and not getting anywhere sometimes. I'm just short of 3 and half miles from work, and this app is giving me little milestones too. Getting my journey under 20 minutes again was a big one, before the hit and run I was managing it in under 15 minutes sometimes. I was about 50lb lighter, mind. Last night was the first time I'd managed to hit 11mph, which is great for anyone in my shape. Yeah, the majority of cyclists I see are in better shape than me on the surface, but so what, they're not me.

Potato and Leek soup for dinner and I really can't think of any food more boring. I accidentally stockpiled the stuff though... There's this place called Company Shop https://www.companyshop.co.uk/. There are only four of em in the country, but they're great. It's on a membership basis for people working in the emergency services. They're great for tackling food waste, and it's probably the best perk I've had working in the NHS. Basically, they're always striking up deals with supermarkets taking their surplus for next to nowt and selling it at big discounts. It's often stuff that's getting close to use by dates but not that much closer than if you were getting it at Tesco etc. Anyway, I ended up getting 24 tins of Heinz Potato and Leek soup for £2 from there, oops. If anybody who reads this lives close to one of these places and works in the emergency services, it's defitely worth signing up.

I love that they're doing their bit and saving me a few quid at the same time, it's such a shame how much food goes to waste. That said, are they really saving anything? Alright, every time I've been in I've bought stuff that I probably wouldn't have bought at normal price and some of it I've really enjoyed, but if I'm buying the basics from there I'm not buying the basics from Morrisons or wherever.

Just throwing this out there, where do we all stand on best before/use by dates? I don't give em that much attention to be honest. Course when I'm out shopping and I see a loaf of bread with a longer date on it I'll get that, but I'm not gona throw it away if its use by date passes. Nothing beats the sniff test. I think dates are too strict, and I can half understand it. Course, all food manufacturers and supermarkets are going to want to cover their own backs and give themselves a decent gap for when it becomes risky to eat something. I just don't know if overall, people are as picky as food standards agency and supermarkets etc. I was in Morrisons earlier and noticed they've got bags of potatoes labeled as "wonky veg", they're not polished, they might have the odd bruise or spade mark in them, but there's nowt wrong with em. I'm glad to see more of that kind of thing, cos it isn't that long ago that they'd have been thrown.
