Hi, I'm not sure if Diva or Socks are about so I will post this one. When they reappear, they can take back over.

Week 19 - For the Love of Fruit

Consume 2 to 4 servings of whole fruit per day. (One serving = 1 cup of berries or other fruit; 1 medium sized fruit or 1/2 a banana or grapefruit)

Great I've found you all again! Thanks Night. Place marked now so will go and find the weeks I missed and update later

I eat loads of veg, but not much fruit. I find since lc that too much fruit upsets my gut. However, I have had some greek yoghurt, berries (from frozen), linseed & dried blueberry/raspberry mix, drizzle of maple syrup for late brunch/breakfast! Will vegetable fruits count? Cucumber, tomato, pepper.. all technically fruit wink.

I still need to work on my aerobic exercise from last week.

Thanks for starting the new thread. I usually manage this anyway so I should do better than last week, I've done no proper exercise whatsoever!

Wow didn't realise I had fallen by the way side for so long blush
OK quick summary. Laughing is quite good in our house but could always have more fun I guess. Eating regularly, I do that for lots of reasons - I love food, I get hangry if I don't eat regularly (and lastly but v definitely not least I'm a Dietitian so I do believe it's good for you)
Exercise regularly. Hmmm crap at this cos I naturally lazy and don't enjoy exercise for the sake of it. We do try to be active as a family but not so good recently. I do Pilates weekly and horse riding when I can afford fit it in.
This week easy peasy lemon squeezy as my 7 yo would say. I love fruit and have a minimum of 2-3 pieces everyday.
Hope you have all been OK for the last few weeks. I assume OddSocks is missing, anyone know if she is unwell again?
Will try harder to check in regularly, I was enjoying the chat

Thanks a lot Night

I wasn't able to keep up with last weeks with the back and can see this week being the same exercise wise.

I've really fallen by the wayside with everything, totally fed up being in pain and it's really made a difference to my eating habits, hurts to stand up for any length of time to cook and painkillers knock off my appetite. I've been crap even with water. Really need to get back on track.

But, I'm a big fruit eater. Love my fruit more than veggies. I have a banana for breakfast most days so starts me off well fruit wise.

Hope oddsocks is ok

The book says to do things at your own pace, so if some challenges take longer, that's ok.

It doesn't mention vegetable fruit but suggests adding fruit to salads and sandwiches and trying to eat a rainbow of fruit as different fruit have different 'goodies' inside.

It also mentions that fruit is a good sugar substitute for when you are craving something sweet. I'm a total sugar addict so I'm interested in giving that a go.

Also, that whole fruit is better than fruit juice as it has more fiber.

I had a search for OddSocks posts but couldn't see anything for the past few weeks. I hope she is doing ok flowers

I've fallen off the wagon a bit. Everything had been going well but I dropped the ball a bit.

Fruit is good I can do fruit.
I've been having an apple as part if a ploughmans lunch lately and it works well. It means I get fruit, veg, dairy and protein all in one meal and as it's chopped up it weirdly feels like a treat

Would it be possible to put a link to the previous thread in the OP? Too late for now though a link now would be fab b7t fir future reference. I might be a late joiner, though this week's not too great for me as I have fructose intolerance and am also allergic to loads of fruit.hmm

This is great, thank you, I love fruit.

I think the last time OddSocks posted was 24th April, the day after the meet-up, to say she didn't have a hangover.

She's usually not gone this long I don't think sad

quirkychick Thu 05-May-16 10:35:08

I hope Oddsocks is ok.

I am kind of combining this one with the veg one, and trying to make sure I eat lots of different coloured veg and fruit. Quite easy this time of year with lots of delicious seasonal produce. Yesterday breakfast: frozen berries with yoghurt: blueberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants; with lunch: grilled orange and yellow peppers, carrot and celery sticks; dinner: fish with broccoli, asparagus, carrots, followed by strawberries and blueberries with cream.

I really hope she's OK too, I'm worried about her.

Has everyone bailed from here in her absence? I hope not, it would be nice for her to come back to when she's ready.

I'm away and can rarely get online, eating out a lot so is easy to order lots of fruit and veg and salad.

Sante everyone winesmile
