Time for Change: Back on it.

Ok I've been a bit naughty recently and I've fallen off the healthy wagon. To be fair I have had two holidays, two festivals, a wedding and my birthday. I've not been as bad as I used to be but I've also not been good. That being said in the 7 weeks I've not been watching what I eat I have still managed to lose 1lb. I know this isn't much but I was totally expecting to have put about half a stone back on, so #winning.

I think I managed this as I kept up my walking as much as I could. This was helped by the fact our car went kaput so had no choice but to walk most places. We have a new car now but with the kids going back to school in 2 weeks time I'm going to walk them to school which will mean around 4 1/2 miles walking each day. I have another wedding to go to at the end of September so my new goal is to lose 1/2 stone before then. I know if I set out with the same gusto I did when I started this journey a few months ago then I will hit this target.

So, what have I been up to in the last 7 weeks. Well 1st I had a holiday to Calella de Palafrugell, we had some amazing food here and did lots of walking (which you can read about here).


After we returned to England it was only a couple of weeks until we went the Corbridge festival (you can read Mrs Cools review of the festival here). There were loads of food venders there and I finally got a taste for Cider after a few people were saying I should give it a go.


Then it was only a week until I went to wedding and it was my birthday. The food at the wedding was amazing and I had a lot to drink but I did plenty of dancing so that would have burned off a lot of the extra calories. For my birthday we went to The Red House (see here) on Newcastle's Quayside. I had the Chicken, Gammon and Leek pie, it was friggin' lush.


After my birthday it was only week until our next holiday, camping at Loch Ness, we had BBQ one night and the next morning I had a full english from the campsite cafe.


After Loch Ness we then only had a couple of weeks until we went to the Just So Festival. Again there were some amazing food venders but there was a lot to see and the festival site was spread over a large are so again there was plenty of walking. My foodie highlight of the festival was the Chicken Koti Chaat I had from the Chaat Cart.


So that takes us right up to date and now I need to get back to doing more exercise and healthier meals. I'm going to start posting more regularly about my weight loss so look out for an update every other Saturday.

Well, that's all for now.
