Day 1 and 2

Yay! I survived two days sugar free!

Not a cake, biscuit, cookie or bun has passed my lips.

I suspect I've eaten too much peanut butter and cheese, though! But I'm not expecting to lose any weight in this adjustment period. I need to replace my sugar munching with something else.

Breakfast- porridge with water and added milk
Lunch- feta cheese salad
Tea- parsnip soup and wholemeal bread
Snacks-  Ryvita and peanut butter; Brazil nuts; Ryvita and soft cheese; mixed seeds

Chocolate musings

On February 1st, I gave up chocolate.

It deserves a line all by itself, don't you think?

People asked me' For Lent?' And I just said, 'No, just February'. But actually, February turned into March. Then I replied, 'No, just for a while'.

And now it's April 1st. I can't believe I've done it. This is the stuff-four-chocolate- bars-in-after-the-other girl. Addicted to chocolate when marking exercise books or, worse, A level essays.

When I was asked a few days ago, I said, 'No, for good,' then gasped at myself.

Now I'm kind of thinking. .. what next?

Well, after a week of Center Parcs food indulgence, I'm feeling very overweight and unhealthy. So I want something to make me healthy. 

So I'm going sugar free, and bringing fat back into my life, after years without it.

I'll explain later how I have done sugar free and good fats before, well before it was 'trendy'.

I'm starting on Sunday, April 3rd, as I'm at a hen party tomorrow. My other resolution is to blog it. Just really so I have a record of it!

See you Sunday.
