Christmas and the new year were wonderful and I stopped fasting for a month. A blissful month where I looked after me. I rested, I ate, I focused on inner happiness. I bought a house, I saw friends and played Wii until 7am on Christmas eve.

And I didn’t really put on much weight.

Since January 1st I have been off the booze with the goal being to last 3 months – with the caveat that I can open a bottle of bubbly the night we move into the new house. 2 weeks in and it’s actually a breeze, although I wouldn’t have said no to a glass of wine last night.

I’m back on the 5:2 fasting today and not struggling very much. I’m not hungry but the habit of eating is raising its ugly head.

All in all, still feeling very positive and looking forward to seeing big results this year!
