Life: The Update

* The flu is finally starting to go.
* The bloody cookery book still isn't here, despite the fact it was 'dispatched' on the 7th, but, I'm promised, will be here tomorrow. Right.
* Baby E is trying to crawl, but she can't get her legs into the right position just yet. Don't think it'll be long though.
* Am almost finished Shalimar The Clown by Salman Rushdie. And very good it is too. What to read next?
* Tonight am going to cook hubby a Turkish lamb stew with an aubergine sauce, and a rice pilaf. Obviously I won't be eating the lamb bit, but the rest sounds tasty [from Arabesque].
* Also on a foody note, I found the most scrummy jam in Sainsburys: it's a Taste The Difference (ie a smidge pricey) fig and orange-blossom jam. Yum.
* Have lost 5lbs on the Kellogs diet in the last 2 weeks. That means I am only 2lbs over what I was when I got pregnant (I've lost just under 3 and a half stones), although to be fair I could do with losing another half a stone. But yay anyway! Now all I need is a bit of motivation to do some exercise other than walking with the pushchair...
* Next on the 'to-buy' list is a pasta machine, only £15 in Argos, but why has it taken me so long to realise I should have one?
* Perhaps if I didn't like food + cooking so much I might find it easier to lose weight? Pah, where's the fun in that?!

Oh so jealous! Weight loss like that should be very, very commended.

How d'you do it? No, really - how? Enquiring minds must know... :)

well done on the weight loss, that is fantastic. I think I put on about half a stone of chocolate over Easter. x

I haven't been very strict with the 'diet' thing to be honest. I've just been cutting down on cheese (which I love) and have done that kellog's thing twice (2 lots of 2 weeks) which seems to work for me as you don't have to think about it too much, no counting or anything. I have done a bit of exercise here and there but again nothing consistent, so not sure if there's any magic secret. I still like butter in my food (especially couscous) but have been trying to cut down in other areas...not sure how to lose the last half a stone, perhaps I'll just do the kellogs thing again in a couple of weeks' time (it's a bit boring tho!).
