What an awesome week we have had.....
First off I have lost 4lbs this week, this I am very please with. I have really watched what I have eaten and kept it healthy. I returned to the gym and rekindled my love of running. (I even managed a 5 miler yesterday.)
All in all I'm extremely pleased.
Last Monday, I wrote a rather short and rushed post. (Excuses, excuses)
Afterwards I realised that I wasn't actually sure if I was achieving my goal or not, which made me feel crap. I wasn't making enough time to reflect, blog and keep track- this also made me feel crap. Plus I had put on weight - A TRIPLE dose of crap.
After writing, posting and sulking.
I pulled my finger out, went for a run and made a conscious decision to stick with it - after all this is a family New Years Resolution and an important one at that!
Tuesday I got a huge dose of inspiration.......
|Fresh Veg - You can't beat it!|
The box contained cabbage, red cabbage, leek, potatoes, onions, red onion, swede, brussel sprouts, carrots, parsnips, free range eggs and apple juice.
And all the veg was lovely and muddy - just out the ground - as fresh as it gets.
|Amazing Apple Juice|
We spent most of Tuesday evening thinking about and chatting about all the dishes we could make. It was amazing to see the children so excited about veg.
- Chicken and Paprika Stew
- Cauliflower and broccoli cheese (Jamie Oliver style)
- A HUGE Shepherds pie
- Kiddie Friendly Cabbage
- Brussel sprouts & cabbage with bacon and
- Leak & potato soup (almost - my blender broke)
YEP I am on the list for fresh beautiful and tasty veg from now on.
I have no idea why I didn't start cooking sooner. I'm amazed about how exciting I am finding new recipes and how relaxing cook can be.
