We have been eating well this week. I finally succumbed to my own planner tendencies and wrote out our dinner menus for the week. And its been great. I look every morning and know what we are having that night. I can get any last-minute ingredients if absolutely necessary , working on the basis that the less time I spend in shops the better ( more on that another time re domestic economy / boredom threshold, better things to do with my life). Now I know there are those of you out there who are so ahead of me on the domestic goddess front. Housewifely tendencies are not my strong suit. But I am actually enjoying this. I’m having fun in the kitchen, the food tastes great and the pounds are beginning to come off.
The losing weight plan ( do I use the D word or not?) is coming on. Making the shift to the fish/white meat/vegetarian end of the protein spectrum seems to be paying off, especially focusing on oily fish for those good fats. After a week of that and really making sure we have plenty of veggies with meals the scales are showing a shift ( yay!)
I can feel myself moving a bit more easily, I’m a bit less stiff in the mornings and I’m starting to look forward to exercise – especially swimming and aquafit.
There is a long way to go. This is a 2 year plan. But change is happening.
