Really needed a quiet day

Curry and a couple of beers was planned last night. And I was pretty "good". I had 1.5 pints of beer, then switched to Diet Coke. I had a non-creamy and non-nutty curry with chicken and lots of veggies and chick pea and spinach daal on the side. No rice. No naan. However...




It was...



This morning when I got up, I couldn't move my rings at all. Yesterday, they were starting to get worryingly loose (close to thinking about perhaps getting them altered), but this morning I was swollen enough with retained water that I couldn't move them even a millimetre! And my stomach has felt quite acidic all day. It's such a shame, because apart from the saltiness, the curry and daal were delicious.

So, despite drinking in moderation, I'm still shattered today because no matter how little you drink, going out still means getting home and to bed quite late. After not enough sleep for a few nights in a row, I really needed a rest day today and thankfully that's what was planned anyway.

And I finally got around to making Rachel's muffins. They came out looking great, but then sank like souffles! I think I used too much baking powder and too much water; this one is mid-sink:-

B - greek yogurt, 1 scoop, blueberries and grape nuts
S - banana
L - lentil and bacon soup (from EAT)
S - tangerines
S - carrots and houmous
S - beef jerky
D - beef chilli, couscous, peas and sweet corn
S - 2x chocolatebananaproteinmuffins (thanks Rachel!)
