FFF15

FFF check in

Things have been so busy here this week that I haven't had a chance to get to the Y, which means no exercising to report.  Tuesday I went to my cancer  support group afternoon tea where I just had to indulge in a delicious gluten free chocolate salty caramel muffin.  They microwaved it so the caramel melted, oh it was to die for!


Passionfruit sponge

Thursday  Bear cooked a special dinner for my birthday, with   a passionfruit iced sponge for dessert. It was so yum! He even had a piece which is most unusual. So this week apart from no exercising there hasn't been very much sticking to healthy eating either.


Good news though I've lost weight. You know the saying You can't have your cake and eat it too.  Well apparently you can eat your cake and lose weight. Yeehah!

This weekend is Mothers Day here so probably more celebrations.  I don't mind if the weight keeps dropping off whilst eating cake.  

Happy Mothers Day to everyone who celebrates it this Sunday.

Hope everyone else did better than me on their FFF challenge.
Have a good weekend.

  1. Hi Lindy,

    Congratulations on the weight loss, that is so awesome :) Wishing you a belated Happy Birthday! Lovely that Bear cooked a special dinner :)

    Ooh, I really hope it is possible to have your cake and eat it too, otherwise I'm in trouble lol. I'm a sucker for salted caramel. So yummy heated.

    Happy Mother's day for Sunday :)

    1. Thank you Roz. Hope your weather is not as bad as ours at the moment. We're experiencing gale force winds coming up from Antarctica with heaps of rain. So chilly.

  3. Happy Birthday, Lindy Lou. Glad that the cake didn't set you back. Having a husband who bakes like your Bear is a double- edged sword.

    You should make one of those charts to show your progress over the last 15 weeks. Be proud of yourself.

    Sending a Big Birthday Hug Down Under,
