This used to make me cry every time

Mrs Fruci enjoys her spag bowl as much as the rest of us


And with a demanding baby who loves a good feed every 3-5 hours


It’s just as well


Because bolognese is a quick and simple meal that once prepared…


Can do us for days

^^^ Spag bowl, stuffed mushrooms, stuffed peppers, Bolognaise omelettes…you name it…super quick, nutritious and versatile!


Now, Mrs Fruci might not appreciate my onion breath (she can smell it a mile off)


But ditching the onions from a bolognese is like having a fry up without the bacon (it doesn’t happen…in my house anyway ;-)…)


So she has to put up with this


PLUS…the fact they bring tears to my eye every time I cut them…Or DID!


Until I learnt these little hacks to stop me crying:


1) Use a sharp knife – this ensures the enzymes are not released as you cut through the onion rather than crush it


2) Put the onions in the freezer before cutting them for 10 mins or so.


3) Cut your onion near the steam from your kettle


What’s this got to do with this weight loss and toning up game?


Well, it doesn’t have to be a constant struggle for you


You don’t have to go on a ‘detox’ (unless you want to lose a load of water weight rather than the apron)


you don’t have to ditch all of your prosecco (or bacon)


You don’t have to drink green smoothies morning, noon and night


You don’t have to give up your coffee


You don’t have to be so sore ALL OF THE TIME that it’s a struggle to get off the loo every day


And you don’t have to spend hours exercising every day


^^^ That’s as long as you exercise PRODUCTIVELY and don’t confuse how long you exercise with how ‘good’ it is for ditching the bingo wings 


Now, I’m not saying it’s easy


Because – as you know – it’s not


But the key part of all of this?


Consistency


I mean, think about how many people have said ‘I’ll do it on Monday’ (that sounded a bit weird)


Or ‘diet starts Monday’


You see, it’s easy to say this on a weekend


But when ‘real life’ mode kicks in


You can’t stick to it


Because you thought your plan had to make you ‘cry’ for it to be effective 


But just like I’ve learnt with my onions…


There’s often a better way


A way that fits YOUR lifestyle


So that even on your WORST week


On a rainy, windy Wednesday


You could do it


because when it comes to losing weight, fitting back into your favourite clothes and having more energy…


Half assed is better than no-assed


^^^ As you only fail if you STOP​​​


​​And when you actually enjoy what you do…


Or understand exactly WHY you’re doing what you’re doing


It’ll involve a lot less tears​​​​​​
