Hi guys, I know, I know it has been *forever* since I wrote. Things have been a bit hectic lately with my exam looming a week today! I flip like a fluffy spelt pancake between feeling mortified and (almost too) calm. I’ve done enough exams to know what to expect, but sometimes enough is not enough and I have no idea what to expect! I keep pinching myself to remind me that it’s just a multiple choice piece of paper with random letters – Nothing more and nothing less …. And breeathe….
So in other news life has been a bit stagnant. I’ve got quite into my chunky broths (and I am sure I read somewhere a study that said the process of cooking broths significantly reduces stress levels?!) this one pictured is a simple cheap ham hock bone simmered on a low heat for an hour or so (when the meat just flakes away) with chunky carrots, “fwiine” beans (said in a Queens newyorker accent) with lashings of crushed garlic, salt, peppercorns and lemon juice to taste. I’ve made this combo with left over chicken carcus, gammon and oxtail and it doesn’t disappoint. You could add fancy legumes if you wish to add bulk (I would choose puy lentil as it keeps it shape) but I quite like it without personally.
So life carries on. My weight loss is the “hard place” right now. I’m struggling to care about poundage, which isn’t very “me”. When you feel stuck it is hard to believe taht you can achieve your goals and lose weight. I have not given up, but I know I need to snap out of it pretty quick and get a jog going or a healthy food haul for inspiration. I think I will go to the gym later today and wear some of my funky gear to get me feelin’ it.
Any tips/ motivations / advice on how to get unstuck and
Move forward would be greatly appreciated!
