Quick Tomato and Halloumi Salad

Its summer, it’s too hot cook, and too hot for junk food. Finally, a reason to eat healthily without finding it a struggle. Well, here something I throw together when its sweltering outside.

[Diet Update] Not the worst of weeks, not the best.

Something is going on at work which I can’t talk about yet. It has been consuming my thoughts recently. All good, but it distracted me from the blog. Apologies. I’ve lost another Kilo, despite a diet hiccup on Friday when post-work drinks led to some junk food being devoured. Being hungry and drunk isn’t an ideal…

[Diet Update] Day 7 – Weigh In!

So how’d it go? The first week has gone well. None of the food was repulsive, in fact, it has been a bit of a surprise to find that the Jane Plan food is delicious. I’ve lost over 2kgs, which is precisely what I was looking for. OK, I have 24 to go (around 4st…

[Diet Update] Day 5 – Gnomic Nudity

Yesterday evening was the when I experienced “Gnomic Nudity“, otherwise known as my Gym Induction. Didn’t you do that a few days ago? Well, that was my PT’s gym, this is the gym in my building. I plan to see my PT at his gym and do my day-to-day exercise in my building’s gym. Hence my…

[Diet Update] Day 4 – A Glum Cannon

So, how as the first day using “Glucomannan”? I hear precisely no one screaming at me. Well, funny you should ask… It was fine. Full Stop.😃 Which is a relief, you hear about all those horror stories of “anal leakage” and worry that it could happen with any new dieting supplement. So, phew, no runny bot bots. Having…

[Diet Update] Day 3 – Back to Work

The joy I felt when my alarm gently roused me from a good nights sleep was without a doubt the most arse clenching upsetting thing to have happened to me in weeks. In summary, it was a bit of a downer. Still, the rent doesn’t pay itself. Today is my first day back in the…

[Diet Update] Day 2

Day 2, and all is well, apart from feeling hungry that is. I honestly had forgotten what hungry felt like. I’m not sure I like it. But as Kate Moss once said, “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels“. It better fell bloody amazing Kate! Once again the food itself was lovely. No complaints, apart…

[Diet Update] Day 1

Well, day one was OK. I stuck to the plan and didn’t have any ‘blips‘. I had told myself that it was OK to struggle on the first day and that I should just stick as close to the diet plan as I could. But, I didn’t go off track. The food itself was lovely….

Back to the track

The latter part of 2017 wasn’t fun. Shortly after starting the anti-anxiety medication I had a bad experience with a new GP. If you find a good GP, don’t move, even if you have to travel to see them. I was described as a drug addict by the new GP and refused a new prescription…

Low Carb – Chilli

So I promised you a recipe, and here it is. This is one I’ve found and adapted over the last few weeks in an attempt to get it ‘right’. It’s originally from an American recipe so I’ve been running with it using American measures. Oh, and there is an optional twist, one that I can…
