Personally, I don’t have a lot of faith in myself. I meant to do it this morning when I woke up, but decided a coffee and snuggle was more important. hehe
So, I did it tonight. After one bowl of soup, and before another. Actually, I made myself do it before I had a second bowl (which was even better than the first – true story!), and I still ate too much. Might have to go to the Japanese size bowls for a smaller portion size! Guess what I’m taking to work for lunch tomorrow? More soup! Breakfast tomorrow will be eggs- my fav little protein packs- and dinner will be STEAK with lots and lots of vegetables. Funny how meat and three veg used to be a staple when I was a kid: now it’s so damn dear it’s a treat. Shame really.
Oh, we’re going fishing on the weekend too, hopefully to catch something to supplement the diet. I do like fish, but fresh fish; I’ve had nothing but bad experiences with store brought fish (from a supermarket though, not a fish monger), so I tend to just miss out. The lush of my life said he’ll make me a salmon steak from the shop though, which will be interesting. I have only ever had preprepared salmon (either tinned or vacuum packed), never home cooked – hope I like it! I have a little smoker at home too, so if we do manage to catch a fish to keep, we may get to smoke some… haven’t had it in such a long time… mmmmm… Fish… mmmmmm
