I feel like I’m finally almost back on track to where I was this time last week, before I got the Lurgie. My goal for this week is to solidly break through into the 94s and not bounce back up again. I’d really like to see the 93s before this time next week.

Today was an incredibly productive day – J and I managed to sort out a whole lot of house packing. I had another almost perfect day – aside from the bacardi in my low-cal cordial, that I drank with dinner and Doctor Who.

A couple of friends came round for Doctor Who, and they brought cheese & crackers, crisps, and some naughty toffee rice crispy slice. I felt so virtuous, I just had my fromage frais and did my best to ignore it. Moonday’s Philosophy was again incredibly useful – I really don’t regret not having eaten any of the Bad Things. Thanks again Moonday! πŸ™‚

Also, J and I agreed that the “cauliflower rice” recipe that I’ve tried a few times now, more closely resembles cous cous than rice – aside from the fact that it needs to be cooked for a LOT longer than cous cous. It’s definitely a winner – just don’t add too much soy sauce or it’ll end up being far too salty. Also, have this with a pint of liquid and you’ll be full for a loooong time – I read somewhere that cauliflower absorbs water like nobody’s business, and it sure felt that way at dinner.

  1. Looks like you’re back on track! Bacardi is tempting πŸ™‚
    I hit week 4 yesterday… can’t believe it’s gone by so quick! I’m traveling right now and finding a scale to weigh myself on, naked, before anything goes in my mouth, has been challenging… I’m hoping the scales look good when I finally have to opportunity to weigh myself.
    I’m going to have to try the cauliflower cous cous… sounds yummy!!!!


  2. Can’t believe Doctor Who – I really like Amy!


    • Don’t worry, she’ll be back… πŸ˜‰ They always have one “doctor lite” episode, and then one “companion lite” episode in a season, or both (eg Gods & Monsters, Blink, that one with the alien that steals the Doctor’s voice) so Amy and Rory will be back, at least for the rest of this season. I just wish they’d make her more kick-ass like she used to be. I was totally disappointed when they referred to her as Amy Williams rather than calling her hubby Rory Pond. The whole point of the thing is that she’s supposed to be a feminist icon of a sort, and they’re trampling all over that for the last few episodes. “Let’s rescue Amy” is becoming a theme, and it’s starting to annoy me! πŸ˜‰
