Week 6

I LOVE THIS WEEK!

This is actually one of my favourite weeks and favourite things to do - to start making the decisions NOW that the person you want to be 'one day' would make.

It's that simple ... what would that person choose to do, to eat? 

And then, DO THAT.


Week 6

Ok, I'm going to sound a little contradictory ... whilst I am ALL about taking action to get the results you want, let's also this week just start to BE.

Be the person you want to be, really become them, so making those decisions and choices is a natural part of just being you.

I'm going to talk a little bit more about BEING my inner Thai girl (yes, go with me on this one) in this week's video.


Ok ... so tech conspired against me.

I REALLY didn't mean to finish there just exhorting you to walk on the beach and get a Thai massage - I do know that's not realistic for most of us!

BUT ... I wanted to send this today and not delay so sorry it's a bit unfinished ... I hope you got the gist and tag me in the group, message me, reply to this email if you've any Q's of course!

And in the meantime, have a look at this week's recipes.


Super stir-fries ...

About time we had a focus on stir-fries, but I didn't want to introduce them straight away until doing away with sloshing in the oil but instead using the spray oil (and a splash of water) had become a habit.

This way of eating isn't about counting calories at all but it did shock me when I worked out I was adding about 240 calories of oil at each meal! (And that's just two tablespoons).

Here's a few of my favourites - just remember to use the spray oil, cut the portion sizes, see if you can reduce the sugar slightly (do NOT cut it out, you need it to balance the flavours) and if you're having rice or rice noodles, remember that this should be just once a day, preferably for your evening meal.

Yes, I'm a bit bossy this week - we want to see results!

If a recipe needs Thai holy basil - well, this is really hard to get so if you can get Thai sweet basil (it's often available in Waitrose or sold in jars in some supermarkets and online) use that instead - if you can't get Thai sweet basil just leave it out.

Don't use mediterranean basil - it is a totally different flavour and won't  work at all!


This week, I'm asking myself ... 

... what would my 'me when I've lost the weight and being the person I want to become' version of me choose to do?

And what does yours want you to do?

Would love to hear how you're doing, so hit reply to this email, message me or comment in our FB group and let me know.
