Salad days

And an update on yesterday's lunch - a reminder for the future. Don't get suckered in by the advertising hype and buy that salad dressing again. Sorry English Provender Co., but I'm afraid I think it is awful. It tasted no more of honey or mustard than I do. All I could identify in flavour terms was sugar. Bleh!

So, today's salad takes a different approach. Lots of mixed leaves (heavily rocket based - yum, yum) with no dressing. Add to that half a pot of chicken breast slices with a tikka flavouring for a shot of protein. Let's see if that hits the spot.

The scales are beginning to reflect this new-found (and hopefully lasting) enthusiasm and I'm heading back down to my 'milestone' weight. I did a lot more walking yesterday, which will have helped, and keeping a very strict eye on the things I stuff in my face is helping me feel more in control again.

I even splashed out on a treat today. Strawberries were half-price in the supermarket so I bought some for nibbling at work over the next few days. They are very nice indeed, and cheaper than chocolate!

I have just over two weeks before my mother's birthday and I'd still like to see if I could wear 'that' dress. She hasn't seen me in a frock (or high heels) for donkey's years!

Keep at it fat lass... and you may be able to surprise her.
