Day 4 - and I found this to be a tough day! (But I am still here)
Early up as I knew there was a final large order for Fruit Mince Pies to complete for shipping this afternoon. Packing and labelling and shipping and all finally completed for 2 pm for Brendan to collect in his huge van and take to Leeds to start their journey onwards.
Wow, realised at that point I had not eaten anything! Intermittent Fasting without even trying - not recommended.
Quickly cooked some pancetta bacon and scrambled some eggs in ghee which we ate with fresh organic microgreens and followed up with an orange and a handful of walnuts - this felt a huge relief - as at this point it is so easy to slip off the wagon and fall back into old habits ie send out for fish and chips.. It was tough though but this time feels different, there is a longer list of symptoms creeping up (with my age haha) and I would like this to halt. Now. More of that later. Supper was a made up concoction of "What's left in the fridge Mrs" comprising Roast Butternut Squash and pan fried chopped chicken and spinach with more microgreens. Leafy greens seem to be key to feeling full and this is easy to do with microgreesn on hand to supplement every meal
All in all, surprisingly good!
In between, I somehow managed a long walk with my youngest son Rob as the sun was starting to fade. We looked at the cloud formations and felt that there was a change afoot. The clouds seem to point to cold weather coming, they looked like soft snowy drifts floating overhead. We pulled our coats a little tighter. Ted frolicked for a while in the long grass by the stream and then made a run for it towards a rather nice Bichon Frise the other side of the fence. We have not perfected "Get Back Here Now" so by the time Rob had jumped over the fence and legged it down the entire length of the field, the sun had completely gone and we had to use torches to find our way back. Ted of course loved it. Me too.
Tomorrow, bring it on!
