... except eat less and exercise!
Seriously I really need to shift some weight. I didn’t eat that many mince pies over Christmas but somehow I have managed to gain two kilograms. It’s too cold to cycle but I do take Rick out for a walk every day. Paul and I also spend an hour dancing most mornings, it’s a bit of a giggle and some of the more energetic routines like Jerusalema are excellent cardio workouts. I don’t exercise unless it’s fun.
However, this activity alone will not reduce my weight. I really should eat less but, right now, we look forward to meal times, they are the highlight of our day. At this time of year it’s more about soups at lunch time rather than salads, although poached egg and chorizo on salad is still on the menu. Today Paul has made a celeriac and apple soup, not one that we have tried before. Tonight I am roasting some cod fillets and I shall try and resist the temptation to serve it with a creamy sauce. Can’t resist the roast potatoes though!

Dare I have a biscuit with my afternoon cuppa?
