About 70% back to health
I went back to work yesterday even though I'm still not well. I'm probably back to about 70% today. I spent most of last week in bed or resting on the sofa. In 7 days I left the house twice. Yet another holiday lost to illness, nothing achieved except trying to get healthy. Maybe by the time the Easter holidays are here I'll be well again!!
I popped into Sainsbury's on the way home from the gym tonight (very gentle session!) I didn't need anything but picked up a few treats. Cheese for me and crisps, doughnuts and trifle all for The Teenager. I didn't pay full price for anything.
In preparation for going to back to work I made a huge batch of bolagnaise sauce - beef mince, carrots, onions, celery and red lentils. I costed each portion at 80p. I made 10 portions and froze them, ready for adding to lunches and dinners with the SmartPoints marked on them. I'm slowly losing the weight, so far I've lost almost 4kg/8lbs. Slow and steady. I should reach my first target of 6kg by my birthday next month!
