I dutifully had my shake when I woke up today. Last one – yippee!
What a beautiful morning I met Ali in the forest for a walk. We were not expecting to see so much snow on the tracks!
The snow on roads and pavements around here is beginning to melt but nothing seems to have melted in here.
It was a challenge to walk on but so gorgeous to look at and I really enjoyed chatting to Ali as we walked and slithered our way along the tracks and the beautiful surroundings were a bonus.
After the walk I had three figs and a banana for breakfast.
I then headed to Surrey for a herbal tea with Dad and then lunch with Sally.
Here’s a sign of a good friend – one who sits and eats your detox lunch alongside you – thank you Sally. We made a salad from tomatoes, cucumber, green and yellow pepper, avocado and buckwheat sprouts, with an olive oil, vinegar and lime juice dressing.
Served with some asparagus. It was supposed to be corn on the cob but I couldn’t find any so we had asparagus which we cooked.
It was tasty and eating so many vegetables really does fill me up and keep me sated for hours afterwards. It is just not what I feel like eating at this time of year, especially when it is so cold outside. I want something like a stew.
I was out for supper with Michelle and Lucy. We went to The Hare in Langton Green which is a huge pub and restaurant. It was excellent. I had the Malaysian fish stew (cod, salmon, haddock, prawns and mussels) with sticky rice and lots of extra steamed vegetables. I was meant to have fish with vegetables so I wasn’t too far off the plan. I resisted the bread, wine and dessert so was very pleased with my efforts. We had a lovely evening and I would definitely go there again.
So that is that. The detox is over. I am very relieved and extremely pleased with my efforts and perseverance. Detoxing during such cold weather and while I was quite busy was not ideal. But this detox is well set out and easy to follow and I am happy I did it. But even happier it is over
