This is getting quite boring now and it’s all my own fault.
I am still maintaining because I haven’t yet got on with actually doing anything with trying to lose weight. I don’t know why but I just cannot get myself motivated this time. I need some tips.
It’s not all bad, I suppose. I could be gaining weight so staying the same isn’t such a terrible thing. It would be nice to be able to just hit a reset button and go back to the weight I was in my twenties. And to think, back then I thought I was fat.
Things have now got slightly trickier since I am limited to cooking meals on four hob rings. The double oven and grill packed up last week and it will be a while before they can be replaced. This is the latest episode which follows hot on the heels of the boiler packing up last week and being conned out of money for the loft conversion which was meant to have been completed by now but never began thanks to a dodgy builder who took our cash and ran.
So, going back to the cooker, not only do I therefore need to continue to cook on a budget plus but the menu planning selection has got a whole lot smaller and that’s enough to think about without trying to throw losing weight into the midst of it all.
Still, I do have a fruit salad beside me for breakfast.
