I don’t mean to be… I just feel like 15 cherries was excessive and I should’ve stopped after six lol. :)
I ate a whole punnet of Picota cherries the other day. I bought them from the local Morrison's and they looked like they were a portion for one person.:D

If I just had a salad for lunch, is eating 15 cherries afterward, too many? :rolleyes::ignore::???::shrug:
You are such a holy terror, lol.

That might be a British expression, it means to be mischievous. I just looked up what the definition was and it said a child who behaves very badly.:lol:

I ate a whole punnet of cherries the other day. They were lovely and really cheap from a random shop near me. They are usually really expensive.

Same here as they were only £1 and I actually regretted not having bought 2 !:D

Ok, ok! Lol! I paid $3.99 for a pound. I feel like that’s expensive. The week before I found them for $2.99 and was excited. They have been exceptionally good, too. I guess I just felt like a glutton because I’m constantly trying to stay within portion sizes, even with fruit. This ten pounds is now on solid and I can’t get it to budge. I’m at the top of my healthy weight and I won’t mind if I can at least stay where I am. It’s just too easy to let it get out of control. I wonder what a portion of cherries is. I remember when I worked at the hospital, the diabetic patients were allowed ten grapes, depending on the size of the grape. It was depressing putting their trays together.

I stood on the scale and I have lost a couple more pounds. I think it's because I've been eating Greek salad the past few days. It's quite filling for a salad, must be the cheese, olives and olive oil.

Yes, I think you have to be very careful with fruit if you are diabetic as it still counts as sugar.

I just bought some strawberries at the shop with all this talk of fruit.

I rarely find any fruit to be worth the calories. If I'm going to have sugar, it had better be chocolate (or vegan ice cream). I gravitate toward vegetables and grains. Fruits and beans? Meh.

I eat more processed food than I should - vegan burgers, hot dogs and cheese. But I do that mainly because E loves them. While I would love to have a big salad for dinner, he has to have something more.

Cherries have been on sale around $1.50 here every week--and very good! Last summer, and most, they're quite expensive- like $5 a pound! I've made the most of it! Six cherries is what I'd eat if a friend offered me :rolleyes: . All fruit I've had, except the cantalopes and honey dew melons, has been exceptional- even organic peaches have been priced low, and very good. I don't know whats up with the other kinds of melons, the watermelons have been great!

Gotta get back on track with eating. Now that I know how good really really strict wfpb feels.....dam it

Our watermelon has been disgusting. I should take a picture and show you guys what they are trying to sell I did have two good ones about a month ago then they started looking bad again. I can’t even take a chance on buying a whole one because of how bad the quarters look.

Everything else has been amazing but I pay for it. Cantaloupe is 2.99. I did get 2 for 5 a few weeks ago and they were good. Peaches and plums/pluots have been delicious but expensive...3.99. I found peaches the other day for 1.99 but they were huge and super hard. I bought 2. They are just starting to soften. Hopefully they taste good. I also bought pineapple twice at 2.99 each. They were really good. And of course the cherries. I’m going to take advantage while I still can. I think I need to try Aldis again. It’s s good 20-25 minutes away but I haven’t been in a few months and I want to see if they have improved their stock of vegan stuff.

Last night I went running with a friend and we did 4 km without stopping. If she hadn't been with me, I would have stopped and walked several times, probably. It really is all about willpower. Well, plus it probably helped that the humidity/temperature was lower than usual.

Tonight I gardened for 1-2 hours. I'm going to count that as cross training.

The combination of four days of excessive heat followed by a day of torrential rain have not been good for my step count or my hair.

I just looked at the packet of cherries I bought and what it says about serving size. A British family pack. 10 cherries count as 1 of your recommended 5 fruit and veg a day. I counted out 10 and it does look a decent size portion as they are quite big.

Interesting stuff we talk about on here.🤣

I was ill from the heat on Thursday and now have a cold. Healthy eating goes out of the window when I'm feeling ill.
