Hey – hows it going?
It’s been no longer than a week since I last weighed in, but what with Easter (the E Word that shall not be mentioned 😉 ) the bank holidays, friends visiting and a day up in “that London” doing some ‘real’ work for a change it feels like a month has passed. Maddness I know, but there you go.
So yeah the E word. Sigh. I planned it all so well. I assumed, rather naively maybe, that I could see Easter in the same way that I did Christmas. One indulgent day and then back to normality. Trouble is (I think) I’m just not as motivated at the moment as I was at Christmas and the glorious Hotel Chocolat egg was not enjoyed in isolation. It could have been (it so could have been) but it was like I was on some slippery slope, a self destructive path if you like. Before I knew it it was Tuesday and I was eating toast and jam. For no good reason. I didn’t even want it that much. Sad really.
So yeah I gained 2lb this week. I’m not surprised and I was actually slightly relieved it wasn’t more (seriously, I have been that crazy this week). So total loss is now 5 Stone 3lb (73lb).
I’m not upset about this. Maybe a little disappointed in myself but not upset. I know why it happened (although I’m not sure why it happened, happened if that makes sense). Anyway, we all agreed in group to draw a line under the E word that shall not be mentioned from here on in and carry on. Sometimes there’s nothing else you can do.
So this week I have some great meals planned and I also want to get more super free back in there. I’ve not been eating enough veggies and I can feel it. I am also going to keep a food diary and maybe look on the website for some more recipe ideas. It’s been a while and you can so easily get bored with the same old repertoire. I can feel that it’s probably time to mix it up again.
I’ve got the ladies coming round for a girly night in tomorrow. It’ll be a dry one (one’s preggers the other is driving) and I’ll be making Slimming World chips to scoff in front of the telly. I’m also going to have a go at the Lasagne crisps everyone keeps going on about. I know there is some debate as to whether you syn them or not, but as I’m only going to have a small amount and I don’t have them every day I’m not going to. I think if I was having them regularly then I would. Anyway, they might be rank so I’m worrying about that too much. I’m also going to roast some veggies and make syn free dip. All that along with the SW cakes Hayley is bringing will make for a most enjoyable, low syn evening. And I can’t wait.
Have a super week, drawing a line and moving on 😉
