Summary:

Still skipping lunch. Was able to fit a decent swim in the middle of the day. I haven’t been swimming for a while and today I noticed that I was gliding through the water easier than ever before. Lugging my body back and forth for 40 mins or so was a lot easier compared to last time. I reckon that has a lot to do with my (modest) weightloss! If so, I look forward to when I’ve lost some significant weight. I ought to be able to swim like a dolphin then! I am such a water baby. I feel blissful every time I hit the pool. And I believe swimming has a major impact on my overall health. And I’m pretty sure that if I swim more often than I have been doing recently, I will lose fat even faster than I have been doing with, predominantly, gym-work. So I am determined to swim again tomorrow.

Avocado soup was an absolute disaster! Bland, lifeless, pointless! But Mother’s pauwa and dhokla more than made up for it! And my own pasta was very decent. I’m gonna try a sticky chicken drumstick recipe from The Observer tomorrow. Using marmalade. (!) My family were less than enthused at the prospect. But if we don’t try it, we’ll never know if we missed anything!
