UK Newbie saying hello
Hello everyone and I am excited to be part of this forum.
I have been a NB owner for just over 24 hours and am already beginning to fall under it's spell. My primary motivator to buy a NB was to start a more healthy lifestyle, hopefully cure my anxiety which I can sometimes suffer from and also lose a couple of pounds (really this should be numero uno as I am a big girl!) but to me personally the above sounds right.
I live in London and have quite a sedentary job which I was told last week that I would be getting made redundant from so a bit of a shock to put mildly and I need a bit of mental clarity at the moment when it is so tempting to hit the vino and the comforting arms of oblivion.
I was so excited to get my NB, I unwrapped it and, after a preliminary consulting of the booklets, I fired up to make my first blast (this was after already consuming dinner and a sure-fire indicator as to why I am a big girl!) which went down a treat.
At the moment I am making a big blast in the morning to have for breakfast and take half to work in one of the small jugs. It makes plenty and I find them quite filling and also stops me from snacking as I am more mindful of what I am putting in my mouth!
Today's blast was: spinach, cucumber, blueberries, 2 carrots and 2 sticks of celery ... I do chop up the carrots and the celery and no leakage so far. Dinner was a chicken salad from Nando's and was naughty as met a friend afterwards and had a couple ciders which were like manna from heaven.
Anyway, sorry - that must qualify for the most boring post ever! I feel like I am a saddo as I am already looking forward to my morning blast.
Hope that everyone is OK.
