New Month Resolutions

I didn’t really make any New Year resolutions, well, I sort of had some in mind but for various reasons didn’t really apply myself and then suddenly it was February.  And now it’s March tomorrow, how did that happen?  Anyway, my friend Heather over at  Random Ramblings has been doing that 5:2 diet and yesterday when I saw her I was so impressed by how well she looks I decided that I have to try and get myself back on course for a healthy life style.  I don’t think I can manage the 500 calorie thing, my blood sugar drops too quickly and I feel really, and I mean REALLY rough if I don’t have enough to eat, so I am going to try and build up to it by having a couple of seriously frugal days a week and then try and be sensible the rest of the week without having to think too much about it.  I shall count the calories on the frugal days and see if, over time, it goes down.  Part of the discipline will be to report back here from time to time so watch this space and if you don’t see me, come and tell me off on Twitter (@Jaydubblah)
In other news, Heather came round to play yesterday and then we went out for lunch to a local hostelry and hubby came too.  And he enjoyed himself!  At long last we seem to have found somewhere that he could get into without too much trouble, it wasn’t too noisy, he was comfortable and he liked the food!   Well done Black Tiles

We all chose from the specials list.  Hubby had the fish.  It was a lovely piece of cod with a mashed potato cake and greens.  He likes his veg well cooked so didn’t eat much of the greens but he said the fish and potato were very good.  H had the tempura pork with rice and I had the sweet chilli chicken with noodles.  No one had room for pudding

Well, it’s 8:45 so I shall have my breakfast soon.  Wish me luck!

  1. Good luck with your diet! I must start mine....again.

    I'm glad you liked the Black Tiles. I like it there too, especially as it's within staggering distance of my home ;-)
