Too much of a good thing…

Too much of a good thing can be wonderful – Mae West

Oh Mae, you made a lot of sense, but too much of a good thing on this occasion (over-eating) has left me feeling bloated, sluggish and with a poor body image.

It’s no secret that I love roule cheese (Boursin or Tesco) and have discovered that asparagus and courgette wrapped in roule covered pancetta is possibly the most delicious thing on the planet! So I’ve eaten a lot of it, and a lot of everything else too!

(Last night’s dinner was asparagus and broccoli tips wrapped in boursin and pancetta, small jacket potato with applewood smoked cheddar and a crusty roll with alioli)

Combine that with not working out as much as I would have liked to, drinking less water and more wine over the weekend, and I’m not feeling great today.

So I’ve written a shopping list, made sure it’s full of whole foods with limited refined sugar and carbs, high in lean protein (there’s no cheese in sight:-() and still full of flavour so I won’t get bored or in the ‘diet’ mindset.

I think I need a new exercise challenge as well, so I’m going to have a look for some local 10kms that I can aim to beat my fresh PB.

Cheers to ANOTHER fresh start!
