Lost 2 pounds already – hurray! You see the trick now is to keep going rather than celebrating and putting them back on again, which is always my downfall. I’ve been uber-good and logged everything right down the the half teaspoon of cinnamon I had on my porridge this morning, going too far…? Interval running

No – I do not need another diet book (do I?)

There is an amusing article in The Times today (I don’t think it’s supposed to be amusing) on the back of a new book that has been released called The Headspace Diet:10 days to finding your ideal weight I’m afraid I can’t give you a link to the article because it’s behind a pay-wall, but

Quinoa and Almond Salad

2 blogs in one night? What’s got into me? Quinoa and Almond salad that’s what, click here for the recipe I’ve just made this and I had very low expectations, I haven’t had much luck with Quinoa in the past. But this was actually really very nice. I worked out the weight in grams instead

This morning’s blog post comes courtesy of a lovely blog I found called Eating for England. It’s written by an English lady who lives in the US and her recipes and the photos on her blog look lovely. I’ve never had Granola before so I wanted to try this as an alternative breakfast idea. And

It was a beautiful day today. I’m still recovering from my cold from last week so rather than go for a run I decided to go for a 4 mile walk with the dog. In spite of all Mr L and I’s mileage, the dog doesn’t really get out much bless him. He’s not normally

I thought I’d want a bacon sandwich for breakfast this morning but actually I’ve had a bowl of cereal with milk, and not having had it last week, only a little for my tea, I really appreciated that milk. I have read a lot over the years about the benefits of eating ( doing everything

Living below the line – Day 5 (the final day!)

I am so glad it’s the last day of my challenge today. I feel a lot better today, my cold is going and I can see the ‘finish line’. I’ve reached the stage of ears popping and being able to hear properly again -so great! It’s so often the little things that keep you happy.
