Well, the diet's been quite stuffed over Christmas. It didn't help at all that my sister brought along a box of Indian cardamon-flavoured halva, which I completely adore. I can't resist it at all, and I observe from the box that it is 22.5% fat with 509.87 calories per 100 grams. The box is 250 grams and I'll eat most of it, although Ro likes it too.
I've continued to cycle, although not every day. If you leave it a few days, it's much harder to start again, especially when it's cold and windy. It's also very hard not to eat too much. However, the week after next, I'll be in the shop and I'll knuckle under there again. I'll be there between 8 am and 6 pm every day, although not all the time every day, and I'll have breakfast before I go, a meat and salad roll from the bakery during the day and nothing else except fruit and raw vegetables. Of course, I'll then eat mightily in the evenings, but as long as I stick to basic stuff like chicken, steak, fish, veggies, and don't call in the chippie on the way home (now, is that likely?) then I think that's fair enough.
