Far too long…

It has been far too long since I last posted here to my Blog. No excuses really!

Life goes on…. my weight loss journey continues.  My exercise regime is unchanged.

Interestingly, I managed to lose about a stone during 2020, but then managed to gain about 10lb during 2021!  A few sneaky extra treats sneaked in here and there can completely sabotage ones weekly weight loss progress.

Whilst many people struggled with the tedium of lockdowns, I seized the opportunity to exercise every day (for up to two hours) which gave me plenty of wiggle room and a few additional calories to enjoy.

Thankfully, my health has remained excellent and (hoping not to tempt fate here) I have avoided contracting Covid – although many of those around me have not been as fortunate.

Not having holidays and social events also helped – however careful and mindful I am, a few days away from home can wreak havoc with my weight.

Slowly life is returning to “normal” and my diary is beginning to look a little more exciting.

I’m determined to post a little more frequently and share some of the meals that I cook which help to keep me on track.

Sirloin steak stir fry. No need for noodles or rice!
Pan fried sea bass fillet with sun dried tomato and basil quinoa & rice, roasted fennel, tender stem brocolli and a little buffalo Mozzarella cheese.
My quick and easy aubergine Parmigiana with stir fried cabbage and leek, Mexican rice and soured cream  https://flidfit.com/2019/08/09/speedy-aubergine-parmigiana-412-calories/
Eating in the garden, turkey meatballs with a pomodoro, & chianti pasta sauce, griddled courgette, wholewheat spaghetti and grated cheese.
Mushroom Stroganoff with brown rice, roasted butternut squash, green beans and fresh coriander.

  1. Good luck with the weight loss. I’m still battling with myself but losing! I take it you are vegetarian as I see no meat on those plates of delicious looking food? I get even hungrier when I have a meatless day but I do have them every two or three days, not from any convictions but it was a family thing. My mother always thought it was good for us and somehow I’ve kept the habit.

    • Eeek! It’s hard isn’t it? I have little choice but to log and weigh most of what I eat in order to stay on track. I’m thankful that I don’t think I am an emotional eater – I just love my food! But I came to the decision early in my journey that although I love food that my long term health and mobility are more important. I knew that in the event that I contracted COVID I’d have a far better chance of recovery without the additional weight and the asthma I once suffered from. I was quite terrified about going into hospital as I am totally dependent on help form another person if I am outside of my home environment. At home I can manage pretty well alone.
      Anyway, you CAN get back to it…. you really can!
