Week 3

Stats update: I’ve walked 32 Km on the treadmill in 2 weeks. I confess this last week was far less productive than week #1 was. All the same, I have managed at least 15 minutes every day.

We’ve indulged a little over the weekend. I feel a little bad about that. I know that the 5:2 diet says to forget about dieting on non-fast days but I do think that we went too far in that direction…

Today sees the beginning of week #3 and our fifth fasting day. I am serving up the leftover dahl from last week, which I froze together with the cabbage thoran. I’ll thin it down to make a soup. There are 400 calories-worth each in it, so Mr L can have a small naan on the side. I shall have a dollop of a freshening tomato relish to satisfy my eye as well as my palate. I’ll dress it with that low-fat chilli dressing from Cochrane Cottage.

Then I shall go to Spinning Group and breathe garlic fumes at all present.  The sun is out, I may walk up and take my knitting instead of my wheel.

I have switched to weighing on Sunday mornings, which do not follow a Fast day, so my weight has apparently gone up a little since I was weighing following a fast. I am sanguine. It’s a long road to follow and the curve will show a downward slope again soon enough. It’s a slight bummer coming back out of “double figures”, of course but it is only temporary.

Week five of lockdown v2.0 begins today. We have new rules, slightly more relaxed but with the addition of a nightly curfew (from 15th December.) Does that then make this Lockdown v2.1? I think that it probably does! … Continue readingDeterminedly Cheering Myself Up
