Lorenzo's on a Diet
The other day I optimistacally hopped onto the scales. I started quietly weeping. "Pull yourself together you stupid old bat" I said severely.
Well all this extra weight that seems to have crept on uninvited during the last year accounts for the fact that my running is more like shuffling, than striding out over the hills with gay abandon. In fact one friend said to me recently, and I quote "I've seen trees moving faster than you do".
There's nothing for it. Drop calorie intake, increase calorie expenditure. Off to the library and get out some books. Mmmm .. this looks interesting
Patrick Holford's Low GI Diet. I'll get that out. Bloody Hell! You need a PhD in Chemistry to understand this. I'll look at the recipes. Huh. They don't look very interesting, but I take his point and I'll try to work out my own. See what that old McKeith woman has to say.
Don'tcha just hate her? Why then do I buy her books and avidly watch all her telly programmes? Maybe Carol will have a thing to two to say. Or perhaps a Juice Diet?
At this very moment I am drinking a beetroot, apple, carrot and ginger juice. The Juice Lady says it is very good for me. Trouble is, I'm going riding in an hour and I don't like the thought of it slurping around inside me while Peppermint is running.
So, on with the pedometer for the 10,000 steps a day. Up the yoga. Up the running. Up the cycling. Hope I won't be too tired to blog.
