January Diet…

So far, so good.  Although I really fancy something sweet apart from fruit.  As well as watching what I eat, calories lowered greatly, I have also given up sugar and caffeine too.  The caffeine is not a problem, although I do miss my coffee, however, I do have some decaf espresso that will be sufficient.

Usually, in the evening M and I eventually get to sit down and relax on the sofa, usually with a mug of tea each and either some biscuits or a bag of sweets/candy/chocolate.  Sugar is a something I consume too much of, along with full-fat milk.  In tea and coffee, I tend to have two spoons of sugar, and I drink copious amounts of both, but when I get into bed I switch to milk, sometimes normal milk, sometimes sterilised, but both full-fat.  Add a tube of smarties or a bag of jellies and that is my standard evening reading in bed.  But the glass of milk tends to be two or three glasses, or in the case of sterilised milk a whole litre.  Yep, I am addicted to milk.  It is my only real vice, and ever since being a kid I have consumed pints of it, and in adulthood, the pints have increased far too much, roughly 21+ pints a week.  Not that milk is a bad thing.

Another love of mine is peanut butter.  I could eat a whole jar of it in one go, but 3000 calories in one go is a little outrageous, but I could do it in a heartbeat.  I hated peanut butter and could not even bear the smell, then one day a few years ago I decided to eat a Snicker bar, then I decided to try some peanut butter, and realised what I was missing, and since, like milk, have not stopped eating it.

It is only a few days in so things could change, but I am hoping that I stick to this.  M even binned my Christmas cake, which I was totally gutted about, as I love it, but, in the end, it had to be done.

    Good luck! Cutting sugar is tough. I can’t imagine giving up milk. I don’t drink a lot of it but I use it in so many things.

        It was in mine until new year. But I do have a large jar of Whole Earth PB. Can’t wait to have a spoon of it. Mmm
