It’s a beautiful autumn day here in Queensland.
I’ve spent the morning getting my head around the 5:2 Fast Diet, which, according to the documentary aired recently in Australian and also from reading feedback from those following this new eating plan, it is a great way to ‘reset’ our body to more healthy levels and increase the chances of a better quality of life as we get older.
Without going into any further details as I really want to get into felting and it’s the afternoon already (and I still have to hang out some washing lol), here’s a link to the official website. 5:2 Fast Diet.
One of the reasons I’m so late getting on with other stuff today is that I’ve been downloading apps that will help me with this eating plan. I just downloaded the My Fitness Pal App for my android, which is a calorie counter for the two ‘fast’ days where you consume 500 calories in the day. This app will help me on track when I’m out and about.
I also just made a delicious cabbage, carrot and baby spinach soup that is tasty, filling and only gives 116 calories per serving. That took a while. Not in the making, or the eating but in calculating the best mix of ingredients to provide taste and a lowish calorie count.
So, now I’m full, after I’ve put out the washing I’ll get on with making a couple of scarves with a yummy selection of hand-dyed merino wool, silk rovings, silk hankies, tissue silk and an open weave cotton scarf a friend brought me back from Thailand that I blogged about the other day.
