Last weekend HL took me to The Pudding Club. This is held every Friday evening in a delightful small hotel in the Cotswolds. It pretty much does what it says on the tin – gives you lots and lots of puddings. Glorious puddings – 7 of them to be precise.
Now, 7 traditional British puddings all served with lashings of custard isn’t really a recommended way to lose The Last Half Stone. It is a marvellous way to spend a Friday evening however. I thought about how best to approach the situation – it was a lovely gift, and so I didn’t want to be preoccupied worrying about weight. I decided it was a one off experience, and to simply have everything I wanted while there, but be extra good the week before and the week after.
Below you can see just some of the pudding I enjoyed – sticky toffee, lemon sponge and syrup sponge, plus a big jug of custard.
I managed 5 of the 7 puddings on offer during the Pudding Club. HL managed all 7! It was a lovely break from London, and a lovely break from losing the last half stone. It was just a one evening break though.
In the week afterwards, here are a selection of some of the delicious but very healthy meals I’ve been eating.
I didn’t weigh the week of the Pudding Club because I woke up on Saturday in the Cotswolds. There was therefore a 2 week break between my last two weigh ins. I was delighted – and a tad surprised – that this Saturday I had lost half a pound! Now, that isn’t a huge amount for two weeks, but considering I spent last weekend eating 5 different heavy puddings I rather think that proves that if you are normally sensible, the odd foodie treat now and then is compatible with weight loss.
