Kale is the new doughnut…


It feels great to actually be craving a big plate of veggies after coming back from the gym rather than cheese or chocolate (am not eating both right now).

Only a short session tonight which consisted partially of walking at 5.5 – 6 kmh at a 5% incline on the treadmill. It was only 4 months ago that I couldn’t even walk 1/2 mile without having to sit down (because of back pain) and that trying to walk at anything but dead flat on the treadmill made me feel like I was going to die!! LOL! Just shows how you can change things around pretty quick if you just keep persevering!

I’ve a LONG way to go in this weight loss journey to be at a healthy weight, probably another 100 lbs to get into the mid 160 lbs BUT every little lb and every little healthy choice over a processed food makes a difference.


It will ALWAYS be a battle here. It’s like an addiction. My mouth watered at work today as doughnuts were being passed around the office and imagined it felt somewhat like someone with an alcohol problem craving for a drink (and everyone around them is drinking). I sooooo could have eaten one, but then it would have been 2 or 3 or 4 – hell I’ve eaten 14 in one go before!!

It’s hard saying NO but I’m learning to do that more in all aspects of my life and that is a good thing. I am slowly becoming a stronger person.

So it’s 9 pm, I’m tired. Tomorrow I have a health check at my doctors so I have the day off work and I think I’ll start the day with moving another step closer to becoming healthier and head over to the gym again. Oh and my plate of sauted kale, leek and tomatoes, that I just ate now was delicious and I really mean that.

KALE IS THE NEW DOUGHNUT! Well definitely for me anyway… 🙂

  1. Ever had kale chips? DELICIOUS! Tear the leaves off the stems and save the stems to flavor soup. Toss the leaves in oil and salt. Spread them on a pan and bake them at 350F (medium-to-hot oven), watching carefully to make sure they don’t suddenly flip from soggy to charcoal. They’re still good if they’re a little burny, actually. Kale is the new potato chips!
