Plum Muesli Yoghurt Smoothie
Okay, rant time now. I weigh myself regularly. Yet there are those days when I suddenly realise that the number has spiked beyond control. And then I wonder what I had been doing the entire while. I mean nobody's weight can shoot by 7-8 kilos overnight, it is obviously a gradual process. Why did it not register to me when there was still some hope? Was I living under a rock? Couldn't I read my machine? Didn't I figure out when I was +1, +2 or +3 that it was time to pull the reins? But more often than not, the damage is mostly done. And I'm left scourging the refrigerator for some fruits, milk and fibre in a desperate bid at redemption. This smoothie was a result of one such act.
Now that I'm barely a week away from going on my first trip of the year, and have reached an unprecedented stage of 'heaviness of being', maybe it's time to explore such smoothies a bit more. Can I drop a kilo or two in 7 days? Only time will tell.
