The scales said that I am actually
TEN POUNDS LIGHTER!
What a boost! I can't tell really but it was slightly easier to cut my toenails this morning!
I know, I know it's mostly water etc, but it made me fall down into that next stone bracket which is mentally powerful.
So my thoughts and hints and tips.
Go through the book and make a shopping list.
Try not to faint at the till
Feel very superior at the checkout with all your green leafy vegetables and fresh fruit.
Day one - blitz and blitz again. If in doubt blitz again. Kale needs to be blitzed good and proper to get through a straw.
Talking of straws - if you can, get a load of the Mac D ones as they are sturdier than normal pound land ones!
Don't be scared to try the recipes.
You will start to feel full of energy.
It's so easy to prepare and wash up.
The soups are absolutely delicious
Do it with someone for moral support if you can
Lidl nuts are top quality and so much cheaper than other supermarkets.
Very probably, as soon as I hit publish, I'll remember loads more I was going to share!
Feel free to ask me any questions.
So today...did I have a full English for breakfast, fish n chips for lunch and pie n mash for tea followed by jam roly poly and custard? Nah. I'm going to carry on eating and choosing wisely. I will be having the odd smoothie instead of breakfast on some days. Tomorrow I'm going to have the melon one again! If you are counting the calories though, bear in mind that some of the fruity shakes have 400 calories in them! A lot more than two weetabix with skimmed milk.
Today I had a ham salad for lunch. With some extra extra light Philadelphia - it tasted so rich - like clotted cream! The Night Owl snacks didn't interest me one little bit either.
Right, I'm boring myself now preaching diet stuff! Thanks for being with me though last week! Blogging it day by day gave me something to focus on.
I finally unpacked my prezzie. Isn't it pretty! I'm going to have a quick flick through the instruction manual before I fire her up. There's lots of extra bits n bobs to go with it. Not tonight though Josephine, I don't know about you but I do have a night where I'm utterly exhausted and fit fer nowt. Monday is my day. I start work at 8. Then get in at 6. It's always 'oven chips n summat' for tea on a Monday. Not for me. I had a massive frittata out of the bullet book. Lovely.
Must stop typing!
Lots of love from
