The magic number is …….
I lost 8 pounds this week – YEEEEEEEEHAH !!!!!! I ate as much as I wanted as long as it was plant food or whole grains and had no meat or dairy. This way of eating works and so I shall continue.
I made a smoothie for breakfast with a splash of macadamia mylk, half a cup of oats, pomegranate, orange, persimmon and 2 bananas. This is a fabulous new find. It does have agave syrup so I use it in moderation but it is creamy and tastes wonderful. This smoothie was really tasty too which is a great way to start the day.I am enjoying pomegranate and persimmon at the moment.I was busy working today so lunch was very easy. One jacket potato with salt and pepper only, absolutely no butter at all. Topped with the last of the chilli I made last weekend. Nutritious and delicious and kept me full all afternoon. Since being in Stockholm I am in the habit of lighting a candle in the afternoon when I am at home. I have several lovely ones to choose from. This one smells good.So does this one which really does smell of winter as it’s all oranges and cinnamon.Fig is one of my favourite scents for a candle which I can enjoy all year round.
I burned the fig one today. I wasn’t hungry at supper time so made a quick snacky supper to munch while I wrote this. Avocado and humous with celery, carrots and grapes.
I am so pleased to be on the way down again and I feel so much better than I did this time last week. I am sure I will keep going this time as I feel very focused. I am off out now for a drink with Fiona and Judy. Have a great weekend.
