Hi folks. This is a short and sweet post, mostly to get my groove back because I haven’t felt like writing lately. I don’t know about where you are, but here it’s rainy, gray, and cold, and the gloom has threatened to steal all my words.
Of course, once I started this post, I remembered that I have a leg of lamb recipe to put up. And I’d promised Part 2 of the nutritionist’s plan (which includes a family plan that might be interesting to some of you). But I need to say something about that first.
Since June, I’ve gone to the nutritionist once a month or every 6 weeks, and I’d lost a total of 13 kilos, which is like 25 lbs. Actually it’s almost 29 lbs. With each visit, I only ever stayed the same or lost weight – I had not gained anything.
Until this last visit. (sigh). I gained back 2 kilos from stress eating. So anyway, I want to write a follow-up post on the nutritionist because she has such good, solid advice, but I also want to get back on track and feel like I can share that victory too. I’m determined to remember that only regaining weight once since June is not so very bad. Plus, the nutritionist encouraged me that weight gained quickly is also lost quickly, so I’m holding on to that.
So nutritionist post, leg of lamb … I’m also still working on my Regency novel. I have my friend giving me amazing edits on my first draft. I am thrilled. She hands the manuscript back to me full of red ink, and I know her suggestions are going to improve it beyond recognition.
In the meantime, here are a couple of things from Instagram that have made me happy lately.
My morning cup of coffee.
This little spot with my flowering plum tree
and another view from this angle.
Then there’s this cheerful image that makes me want to run right out and bake. Or visit Paris, or something.
Finally there’s this quote, which I actually feel like I’m living out now that I’m in my forties. And that makes me feel so happy.
How about you? What’s new?
