Perhaps it is those little buggers we like to call 'hormones' which like to make us bloated and angry, maybe they are causing weight gain? Who knows. I am determined to stick with it though, it will come off again if it is water retention...it will...it will...I hope.
My lower back is a bit sore this morning. It might be something to do with the fact that I spent 6 hours in the car on Saturday and yesterday quite a bit of time in the office behind my pc. I also have not done any meaningful exercise for nearly a couple of weeks. No yoga class today either. Added into the mix, eating rubbish (grains) always makes my joints creaky. If I get time this afternoon I might jump on the treadmill to try and get moving again. I have done a few sun salutations to try and ease my back a bit already this morning, but hopefully dashing around Waitrose for the next hour might perk me up.
It was a nightmare crossing, I was so sick. It was made difficult as I had fasted on Monday and Tuesday ended up being a fast too. Not intended you understand. I took dad out to lunch on Wednesday and we were booked to eat out with bil that evening. I did eat less than I used to but by the time we were heading home (via the tunnel) on Thursday I was so full.
I weighed this morning being the first of the month and according to my uneven flagstones I have gained a couple of pounds. The weird thing is I have not been plunged into deepest depression or been filled with the desire to eat six Mars Bars and three packets of biscuits as well as any cooking chocolate, raisins etc, you get the picture.

Tuesday's fast was surprisingly fine! I'd intended to get up and breakfast on porridge but I didn’t feel hungry and so didn’t eat as it seemed unnecessary. Had a quiet day at home, only went out to fetch prescription from doctors and popped into M&S while waiting for it at the chemists. I had read on the 5:2 forum earlier in the day of ...
Well it does seem time flies when you're having fun, thought I'd spent an hour or so in the garden, nope 4 hours later and I was done! lol, but, due to the 4 hours of solid gardening my thighs and butt ache! Not so much as they did yesterday, but good god walking and sitting is still tricky!
But, I have started making more soups, very yummy soups! As I'm getting more adventurous i'm trying new forms of cooking meat, at the time of writing this blog post, I'm trying out poaching chicken, smells nice, let's hope it tastes as nice! I did make a very nice chicken and sweetcorn soup from the change4life app, going to try out the Mexican bean and tomato soup next from the app, looks so lovely!...
