Halfway through Dry January and I’m feeling fantastic. I’m not sure whether to attribute this to having no alcohol (because I wasn’t having that much to start with: I only drank on Tuesdays and Saturdays), or to the latest addition to my breakfast porridge, chia seeds. Anyway, something is going on because I feel ridiculously healthy and serene. Or is it that there have been no chocolate biscuits in the house? Who knows! I’ve lost about four pounds which is good, but I’m not actually dieting. In fact I’m eating loads, but just not rubbish (give or take the odd iced finger from Chatwins). For the rest of this month, I’m going to stick to what I’m doing, then in February, I’m planning to deal with my bread and butter addiction by going cold turkey with it. I know I could make faster progress by putting everything right all at once, but I don’t have that steely determination that’s needed, so I’m taking it one thing at a time. How’s everyone else doing?
