Sometimes, life gets in the way of both blogging and dieting. And sometimes, it is not so much life as me...I get in the way of it. I think that I have fallen out of love with things recently, got a bit stale. I need to think carefully about how I can regain the amazing mojo that I had not all that long ago.
Without going too much into it, I've been feeling a bit off. Long time readers will know that I am someone who has to keep a careful eye on my mental health and I haven't been as vigilant as I should of late. And it can be a vicious cycle to fall into - I start to feel a bit low, a bit disinclined to look after myself as well as I should and that then feeds the devil on my shoulder and my mood continues to dip.
I am, I know, amazingly lucky in many ways, especially in my family and my husband who is unstintingly supportive. I also know that the tide will turn, as it always does and I will bounce back full of enthusiasm and then everything will be easy. That's what I am holding out for - the day when it becomes easy again.
In the meantime, there is still meal planning! This week, D is out on Friday, and we are both dining out on Saturday. So five days to think about...
Prawns with a chilli viniagrette and sweet potato and coriander mash
Leftover lamb biryani
Red pepper and goats' cheese alfredo pasta
Pea and ham soup
Tandoori chicken, creamy lentil dahl, home made flatbreads
As ever, more meal planning fun over at Mrs M's - and sorry for the slightly self indulgent whinge at the beginning of the post!
