MUMenTUM - Week 4

This week has not been a good week for weight loss. Due to over-indulging on alcohol at Glastonbury (it was necessary to survive the mud) a couple of pounds have crept back on. Today I am back to the herbal teas, water and healthy foods and I plan to get those excess pounds shifted by next week.

On the plus side I did do lots of exercise over the weekend and must've walked for miles, uphill, downhill and through thick mud - my legs were aching so much I felt like I had done a vigorous workout.

We also ate mostly healthy foods, there is so much variety on offer it definitely wasn't a burger and chips weekend for us. Apart from one bacon roll (it was lovely Somerset organic bacon) I had banana, nuts and  coffee for breakfast and the rest of my meals mainly consisted of lovely vegetarian offerings, Falafel and salad in a wrap, Crispy (ok it was fried!) Halloumi with salad and Houmous and corn & lentil cakes with mixed salad. After eating all this lovely food my husband is definitely willing to eat more meat-free meals now.

I'm going to try and have a couple of wine free weeks now too, but I may have to start that tomorrow as we're off to see Take That tonight and I can't promise that a drop or two of wine or lager won't pass my lips.

I'm off now to see how all the other MUMenTUM ladies got on this week, hopefully a lot better than me. Their posts are shown below.


  1. I want all those veggie options...especially the Halloumi one!! I'm glad I don't drink anymore! Too many calories involved! Enjoy Take That...tell Gary I love him!! xxx

  2. Making more veggie meals.. Sounds like something i should try out. Where would you find good recipes?

  3. I am not vegetarian but I do enjoy eating some vegetarian meals. Falafel is one of my favourites and I love Halloumi. Have a great time at the concert.

    Think how much you have toned your legs with all that walking! especially in the mud.

    Here is to a good week.

  4. Don't worry we'll have a good week this week.

    Not sure about my legs being toned but they sure are aching! Falafel is definitely going on my shopping list this week, yum.
    Take That was great!

    It was a bit scary for me too.....I think I will just stick to Take That in future!
    Falafel is the future!!
