30 pounds lighter... it's all in the three P's......

I can't believe how long it's been since I've blogged. However, I have a really good reason. I have been busy getting fit and losing 30lbs(me on the right at my first 5K), and totally changing the way I eat, cook and think about food. Of course I still make my banana cake and my chocolate chip cookies every now and again and for special occasions, but I'm also the proud owner of at least 15 new recipes for lentils. I haven't made them all yet, but my favourite is the Warm Lentil Salad, which I eat for lunch at least 3 times a week and I'll bring to you next post!!

So I'm all about the three P's right now, planning, portions and performance (or exercise!).

I have become and exerciser and a calorie counter and a nutrition junkie, and have discovered a lot of new food, new ways to cook and new ways to eat and enjoy life in the process. I have started to run, something I thought I would never do, let alone enjoy, and it has been great.

I have also suffered an injury in the last month, which has totaly ground me to a halt, and given me lots of time to think, which has been a good thing. I'll be discussing all these things in the days to come, and I'm really looking forward to it an also getting some feed back from everyone!!
