The last two week have been a bit of a mixed bag as far as weight loss is concerned. Week eight saw me going in the right direction and losing a pound. Week nine found me in London attending The Chelsea Flower Show with The Over 40 Collective as a guest of MADELEINE Fashion. (More about this awesome brand in Monday’s outfit post).

I then journeyed to Kent to spend a few days on our boat, which is where I am now. Scoring WIFI at a local cafe and feverishly banging away on my keyboard.
I’ve got to say, I’m pretty proud of myself for sticking to my healthy eating guns during my few days in London. I always find it far harder to not overindulge when the fizz is flowing and the food is incredibly good.
I did have a few glasses of fizz on the Thursday before the show. Well, meeting up with all my Over 40 Collective friends called for a bit of a celebration. I did make sure to keep my water level topped up though, the thought of even a slight hangover kept me on the straight and narrow.
MADELEINE and Bright Light PR had pulled out all the stops for our visit to The Chelsea Flower Show and arranged a private dining area where our menu was created by Raymond Blanc.
Luckily, the day’s food offering included a lot of fresh, wholesome ingredients and it was pretty easy to feel full and satisfied without partaking of too many naughty but ever so nice goodies on offer – the afternoon tea was to die for!
I’ll be publishing a whole post about our day at the show on Friday, so do keep an eye out for that.
I’m still giving serious thought to starting a weekly vlog which would include a weigh in. My life is pretty eclectic and I sometimes get up to some interesting stuff.
I think it might be far better to show you what I get up to during my week in a weekly vlog rather than simply sharing what I eat in a week.
