localfreak: (Chef!Wilson)
At the moment I am on that most queenish of things: A Diet. Sick to death of always been told I am overweight by electronic calculators (which I know are often flawed because they're based on 'average' perons etc but it still stinks a bit when even your bloody Wii is saying you're too heavy). I don't need to lose much to be in a 'good' BMI (according to my Wii) and I reckon that I can probably achieve a lot by just eating better and actually paying attention to things like that. And also not letting Work tempt me by teaching me what Krispy Kreme doughnuts taste like, or providing leftover danish pastries, or by acquiring biscuits and enormous boxes of ferero rochers. So in an experiment I also set up a spreadsheet to record what I eat. I've never liked doing it before but by having to write things down I find it helps me not just much my way through four packets of crisps whilst reading. A bit.

Anyway long story blah blah blah Today Mum was going to teach me how to make home-made beefburgers. We had lean mince and onion and things to use and so I set to work. However, due to some drastic underestimations regarding the mix we managed to make THE BIGGEST BURGERS IN THE WORLD EVER. Neither of us could finish our tea, and we'd even made fruit salad for afterwards which is currently sitting untouched in the 'fridge. They were nice but just TOO HUGE FOR LIFE. THey're the kind of burger I imagine Thor would eat.

Owing to the fact we have absolutely no idea what the BURGERS OF DOOM weighed or anything therefore, today's spreadsheet if 'offline'. I have absolutely no idea. Theoretically it might not have been as ginormous calorie wise as it felt- it was very lean and apart from being sealed in the frying pan got oven cooked, and besides was full of onions and stuff. Ah well. This one is going to be a mystery day anyway.

Speaking of losing weight- proof it is working- I had to go shopping for new trousers today. When I discovered that without the belt I didn't have to unbutton my work trousers to take them off I decided it was time. Woohoo! I am currently around the size I was when I was at Uni, (and therefore before dole, stress eating and sedentary office work combined with doughnuts began) which is pretty damn good.


In other news my project to clear some bookcase space has had good inroads on it today. I have filled a box and created a list. I have promised first-dibs to [personal profile] still_lycoris but after which I'm going to email some people and maybe put the list up here for people to take a pick if they'd like (although if anyone does but live far away I will have to find a way to arrange payment of postage costs I think. Not sure how to do that.)

Ah well. I only wish I could feel a bit less full as I was really looking forward to that fruit salad!
