You see what happened there? Not the plan at all! In fairness, though, after some hard core festive feasting (and even more hard core post-festive 'eating up' of the leftover treats) it could be a lot, lot worse.
So. No more cheese binges, no more almond slices (so unprepossessing in the packet, so very moist and delicious in the mouth), all gone Christmas cake (I tried Dan Lepard's caramel one this year and it was delicious, but boy did it last!). I also tried Nigel Slater's stollen recipe (ticking one of my 101 things, yeay!) which was delicious but I didn't compensate for my turbo oven so they were a bit dry... enter Stollen bread and butter pudding: yum!
This afternoon I have my first session with the lovely Kate who is going to size me up and give me a programme to trim me down. Then I just need to make the time to work out three or four times a week...
