weigh in day

Weigh in day today. Every dieter knows that Monday is the ‘day that counts’. This week, I have been eating soup with lashings of double cream in it, confit de canard, lots of cheese, olive oil on everything, roast chicken with skin, avocados, tons of... read more

60% fat and vanilla extract

First day of my new workouts today. I thought if I started the week on a Sunday, I might even get to do those five sessions that my coach asked. It was very intense, very hard work, and took 2.5 hours, and I felt amazing afterwards. Weight seems to be moving at last... read more

A Too Busy Week

Two hours up the gym today, and still hungry after dinner

Just had dinner, and I’m still hungry! We had what has become a favourite, peanut butter noodles with loads of veg and a tiny bit of chicken. It was tasty, satisfying, but now, half an hour later, my tummy is rumbling again. I’ve started a 12 week program... read more
