Week 5 of the No Diet Diet begins
Today Jim and I had a lovely lunch with Connie, her husband Brian and their dog Bella - it was great to meet them and of course it meant I could hand over the loot to Connie straight away as she'd won the journal cover etc. from my giveaway. She's a fascinating woman as well as fun illustrator! I've got lots to think about from our conversation.
On the dog front, apart from meeting the delightful and probably unrepeatable Bella, today I also talked to a neighbour who has a couple of Cocker Spaniels, both were rescue dogs and have somewhat bad habits but not too terrible, I'm going to go for a walk with them soon!
Whilst out on my evening walk I found these:
They reminded me how, as a child, I found it very confusing that there was a polar bear on a sweet that seemed to be called Fox. After them I found this:
Aren't those goggles a similar blue to the sweet wrappers! And I've decided that as a message I'm going to interpret them as "Icy before but I see clearly now".
As the title of this post reminds me this is the start of the fifth week on the No Diet Diet. This is where we go into maintenance mode. I don't have time to describe it properly now so I'll leave that to another day. So far I've lost 7-8 pounds which is very pleasing.
Any ideas for different things to try?
Update: Following Leah's comment I should clarify this and ask for any ideas that are unrelated to food as the No Diet Diet is about focusing on new activities and behaviours.
