Another week, another pound
Monday, August 10, 2020      4 comments

So I lost 1lb this week, which is nice after staying the same last week. What's funny though is I've had to realise that my mindset is 'I'm on a diet' rather than 'I'm healing my body'. So this week it's been all about saving calories for ... Read more
Drifting - but drifting in the right direction
Wednesday, August 05, 2020      1 comments

I keep telling myself I need a little more focus - it's true that I'm definitely starting to drift a little bit. I track on SparkPeople and I am also doing Intermittent Fasting (18:6 or thereabouts) and the weight is coming off steadily -... Read more
Vegan exploration and self-care - I'm loving it.

So my vegan cooking skills are coming along even though I do say so myself. Today was a chickpea pancake stuffed with onion/spinach/mushroom - hmmmmmmmmm. I added chia seed to the pancake batter which I won't do it again - it made it far too t... Read more
Vegan 'Cream' of Tomato Soup
Monday, June 29, 2020      0 comments

I made this veganised Cream of Tomato Soup which is supposed to taste like Heinz. Heinz Cream of Tomato is my favourite soup but they use buttermilk - so that's out the window now I'm plant-based. I'm not so sure about the Heinz but it is nic... Read more
What do you take two at a time?

Two stairs or two tablets? I was watching a YouTube channel when the guest speaker asked and answered this question. At the very second I was swallowing two ibuprofen! Heck!... Read more

Made a fantastic cucumber soup from this recipe: https://www.veggieinspir I used dried herbs, lime juice (add more next time) and I didn't have any almond milk left so I soaked some in boiling... Read more

Well - I actually did roast my carrots & parsnips (now destined for the freezer before they started to spoil in the fridge). AND I made the oat & yoghurt bread - I actually did it - and it tastes amazing. ... Read more
Ooh a bit of #strong inspiration

I'm loving this lady's example and what's brilliant is that she has done it properly: the healthy way. Recently I've been wondering if I should just get a gastric band but I think I need to take another approach. What I love about what she... Read more
Stayed the Same
Monday, April 27, 2020      0 comments

No weight loss, no weight gain. I haven't changed my ways as yet so I guess that's not surprising. I fasted on Saturday until 6pm - didn't hold out any longer (all day I was 'today's not the day' but at least I held out for a time instead of c... Read more
Second day of fasting*

So today it is liquids only for me - that's how it's going to go. I already broke one of my 'to dos' for the day and watching Killing Eve. So yes I 'forgive' myself but really if I want to crack this I have to keep my promises to myself. ... Read more
Another gentle start #lockdown
Monday, April 13, 2020      0 comments

#lockdown happened All I can do is to begin again. My left side is still stiff but definitely not as bad as it has been in the past. I woke quite late this morning at 9.15am - which is late considering. I really need to get in to a bette... Read more
A gentle start
Monday, December 02, 2019      0 comments

So it has taken me ages to take the plunge to start back on SparkPeople - and there have been loads of false starts. This time I decided to build up slowly. First I started the #eattherainbow challenge - so that Iwas putting good stuff in ... Read more

7lbs off
Tuesday, November 05, 2019      0 comments

So I have dropped 7lbs since my last weigh in - and I'm not sure how. I was hitting my Spark target when I was at home but not so much at Dad's. I've been having a cake and a Magnum every day. I haven't been stressing about it - but still... Read more
