I’ve been struggling to figure out why I’m getting fat?
I’m not a big eater, and to be fair, I get a lot of exercise pushing a wheelchair.
In theory, one should counteract the other.
I’ve been looking through photos of our bimbles, it turns out… I’ve been eating way more than I thought!!
So, as part of my diet, which I’m starting on Monday!!! I’m publicly shaming myself with a look back at the delights that passed my lips during the year.
Healthy Eating on the Road
Oh, and before I do that, here’s the original plan which was meant to keep the cost of travelling down.
A cooler box which plugs into the car, and an urn of hot water. The idea was to save us a few quid as we travel.
The cooler box was meant to be full of fruit, low-fat sarnies and yoghurt – yeah right!
I’d rather eat my own foot…
Why I’m Starting a Diet
Anyway, here’s a taste of some of the scoff I ate on the road last year:
Chicken Risotto in Cardiff
A rack of ribs Bridget couldn’t eat
Chicken nuggets in Jack Daniels sauce in Dublin
Scampi, I can’t even remember where this was?
This was Fish and Chips from a drive-thru chippy.
A breakfast while I was waiting for the Mersey Ferry
A sausage butty from somewhere, it’s bad I can’t remember where …
Fish and Chips, I think these were in Caernarfon?
Posh Fish and Chips in Llandudno
Steak and Chips, also in Llandudno
Gammon and Mash in Morecambe
Oops… Steak and Chips in Morecambe, well on the way home.
Gammon and Eggs in the Campanile
Chilli Con Carne in Derbyshire
Is it any wonder my spare tyre has its own spare tyre!!
The good news is, I ate healthy food in Dartmoor
Pea and Mint Soup
Topped off with three different ice creams
Another Full English in Barnabas House B&B
A coronation chicken sandwich in The Garden House
And a Cream Tea…
So, there you have it – that’s why I’m getting fat!
Do you eat a lot when you’re travelling?
**Update – Since writing this post in 2016, I have put on 2 and a half stone. I am definitely starting a diet on Monday.
