My ‘Work Out of The Day’

Five pounds lost now! Yay! I know this is only 1 more since the last update, but this pattern of weight loss is fairly typical for me and it averages out at a pound per week, which is what I am aiming for, so I am happy. What also makes me happy is that I

4 pounds lost, just 24 to go…

OK, time for a confession, I haven’t been sticking very well to the Paleo diet for the last few months. And I have really noticed a difference. The most distressing difference being for me the weight gain. So I need to get back to following the diet properly and shift that weight off and then

Fit or thin? What’s more important?

It is safe to say that I am feeling a bit fed-up. Mainly disappointed in myself. Whilst not weighing myself for a long time now (a year or is it less? I’m not sure, I can’t remember) because the Paleo diet was suiting me and my jeans fit, I thought I would happily carry on

Roasted butternut squash soup with chilli and ginger

As promised here is the recipe for the soup I have been enjoying, it is a Lorraine Pascale Recipe from her book Home Cooking Made Easy. I have been buying a really big butternut squash and then doubling or adding 50% to rest of the recipe depending on the size of it. I think with

Does a Paleo diet make you health freak?
