Fat Busters

So far this week - we have cleaned 8 properties...
Each clean is thorough, more like a spring clean & our bodies are starting to fight back!
We have both been suffering with all sorts of aches & pains, hobbling around, grunting, yawning & laughing hysterically - which is what happens when we're overtired!

We did make a discovery last week - we've both lost weight...
 We haven't been eating as well as usual, just because we've been working & by the time we've got home - we're too knackered to make anything substantial.  We seem to experience this every holiday season... Eventually our bodies get stronger & we suddenly realise that we have bags of energy & feel really well - can't wait!


The only problem is that Sime being even more active than me with his bands (carrying heavy equipment & standing up performing after working all day), has now lost over a stone in weight within two weeks. He's naturally slim & loses weight really easily (the git), so he's got to think about refuelling more often. Whereas thyroid drugs slowed my metabolism right down, so I am quite happy with the half a stone that I have lost - at least it's a sign that my body is at last working as it should - yipee!

This week, we've taken a bit more care of ourselves - with some decent home cooked grub & we've also eaten out a couple of times...

Our favourite cafe in Mevagissey - Number 5.
Where we opted for a rather nice Houmous & Roasted Veg Jacket Spud.

And today, we visited the cafe at The Lost Gardens Of Heligan & had Cauliflower Cheese...

Sime with roasted veg, broccoli & potatoes.

And I had salad & edible flowers - which was very nice!


We're off to Falmouth soon for another entertaining evening of music, so better get ready...

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Those meals all look delicious. I always liked veggie food and since moving here to Glaston, with its veggie cafes, I have gone into veg-overdrive! I just wish I could cook LOL
Hi Kath - We've visited some of those cafes in Glastonbury in the past & they're have been great!

You clearly don't need to waste money going to the gym in your line of work.

The hummus and mediterranean veg idea for jacket potatoes looks good. I'll have to try it some time.

Hey, you two need to take care of yourselves and get some rest. Keep eating those beautiful meals. I am drooling over the pictures.
