    Carbs are fine, it's the source that's the issue. Rice, pasta, potatoes are all good sources of carbs but the wheat in bread causes bloating which is an issue.

    Money isn't such a problem for me, I'll pay good amounts of it for good food. I eat my avocados as a stand alone snack or as a part of my lunch. I borrowed a vegetarian cook book from a friend and I have found two recipes that could be my replacement dinner. Either pasta or a superfood salad.

    I get that. I'm a sucker for carbs so I have a hard time giving them up. Some days I'll go mostly without and then at like 9 in the evening I'll be like "I need a bagel" or something.

    The other night I ate carrots and guacamole for dinner. Was pretty good. Avocados are cheap here though so I have like a dozen lying around.

    Hmm I don't want to add bread (or products along those lines) into my diet as they cause bloating - but as a last resort I will consider such meals as I would only have it a couple of times a week which won't do much damage at all really.

    I have soup at work so raman is probably too similar for my liking. I did consider spaghetti but that's the kind of meal that you usually have leftovers for and I don't want that (due to limited fridge space and such).

    It's ironic. I'm a fussy eater mainly due to circumstances not taste.I pretty much always have to have a plan as far as my meals go and I suppose life in general. Not a fan of spontaneity.

    I drink a blueberry smoothie pretty much each night as well. If I can just sort out my dinner circumstances, I could make the switch.

    Well, honestly you're taking your diet more seriously than I take mine. I'm not usually one who prepares meals. I just eat what I find in the fridge or wherever. Lately I've eaten a lot of ramen that I add greens, onions, tofu, egg, or whatever I have around to so I make it sort of not unhealthy (that sodium is gonna kill me though). Maybe wraps? Sometimes I'll take tortillas and throw in veggies and hummus and whatever else and eat that. Other times I'll do the same thing but with a bagel or some slices of bread instead. And to ~stir things up~ I'll also sometimes make smoothies with spinach or kale, handful of berries, yogurt, milk, ice, and an apple or banana or something.

    They say that diversity is the spice of life. I think to myself quite often to avoid getting into "samey samey bullmuk" routines. My life is pretty routinely, there's not much spontaneity in what I do, so I think I also fall into that trap at times.

    Speaking of food, there's something you could help me with. I'm planning on going vegetarian. The only thing I need to cut from my current diet is oily fish and the only meal when I have fish is with my dinner - either rice or fish and chips. My issue is what to replace the fish with. For the rice meal, I think I'll have to add something else to my stir fry (cauliflower, peppers and onion shoots currently), in order to get the additional calories in. As for the fish and chips, I am going to have to scrap that meal for something else. Do you have any ideas of a easy vegetarian dinner that I could make? I have rice four times a week as standard but the secondary dinner varies from 2-3 days depending on if I eat out or go to my parent's for dinner on the weekend. As such, the secondary dinner should be something that I can eat in a single day without any leftovers. Any advice would be great. I think between milk, eggs and nuts I can keep my protein levels reasonable enough with all the training I do and such, but any other suggestions for protein could be useful too.

    Things aren't bad, really. Just kinda samey. I'm normally okay with that, but I get into ruts so like in the bad of my mind I know it's bad for me. Kinda like when I eat foods I shouldn't. Feels good now, feels bad later.

    But on the plus side I get to see the new person mess up simple things and I get a little schadenfreude from that.

    You get points for initiative and trying but damn that sucks it didn't work out for you. And yeah to add insult to injury they got an outsider in...

    I'd probably want to leave if that sort of thing happened to me too. I'm getting my car serviced, MOT'd and taxed this month which is a hit on my savings as well.

    I hope things get better for you soon, I really do.

    Oh, I tried to move up the pay ladder at work and wasn't able to and they brought in an outside person instead. Had to replace my car which ate up a bit of my savings. Just... setbacks. I've been thinking about moving and getting a new job and it's just not really feasible right now. But I'm glad to hear you're doing well.

    What kind of life changes if it's not too personal for you to share?

    I watched the video and I found it amusing - it was pretty good though. I'm surprised they said "Osu" in the song though as that is a very manly phrase in Japan and it's not really a word ladies should be using. At least in traditional Japan.

    I'm much the same. Same life, same me. Had some possible life changes that fell through, but eh, what can you do? BUT now that you're here again I can get your reaction to this.

    Yo what's up, long time no talk. I don't do much on PC anymore these days. I've been pretty busy with work and karate and stuff. It's almost been a year since I moved out and gained my independence, it's going pretty great. How about you?

    I have these really nice ceramic kitchen knives that a former roommate had and left with me. They're so good I'm sometimes afraid to use them. I actually split my thumb open maybe half a centimeter and had to go get stitches. Only they said, "naw, it's a clean cut, we'll put this medical glue on it and you'll be fine." And I was, eventually.

    Yeah, a holiday is just what I need. I'm leaving in two days and everything around me is trying to make it difficult to leave, from my car engine going wonky, my cat getting worms, and my health taking a nosedive. So, I sorta get where you're at.

    Speaking of food, I went to the Food Festival with my best friend and neighbours. To be honest it wasn't that great for what is a yearly event but I had a decent time regardless. Ended up having some Japanese style chilli chicken noodles for lunch. There was a knife shop selling overly expensive knives but I suppose if you're a hardcore chef, that's the kind of kit you need. Or hardcore serial killer

    I'm going on holiday in a few weeks time and I got my competition coming up but I've trapped a nerve in my right shoulder and it hurts like hell. I think I have enough time for it to recover but I have to take it easy for a while which is frustrating because I want to train V---V

    Ugh. Why am I reading this when I'm hungry again? I'm going to have to get something for lunch now. Or maybe dinner. I dunno. I think I'd like living in a place like where you do. Quiet. That's what I want. My place where I live is pretty quiet but sometimes the neighbors I share a wall with play music loud on the weekends and there are some high school kids who like to smoke pot outside and be kinda loud and that's annoying.

    Yeah, human nature. Such a dangerous thing. I'm still waiting to get my robot body so I can transplant my brain into it and not deal with all that hoopla.

    It was the chimichangas we had. Yeah they seem pretty cool, invited them over this evening as one of them used to play the piano. It was a nice evening but I think next week I'll naturally want to revert back to my more usual weekly routine. A creature of habit that I am.

    The majority of my neighbours are the elderly as I live in an area where the flats are owned by the council. They are nice and quiet which is what I want really so it's a pretty good deal I think.

    I believe it's a survival instinct. We're still programmed to want to reproduce to preserve humankind - but this instinct was honed back in time when our race was scarce. This is not the case in the current day and age but those old instincts still live on.
