So this what "on plan" looks like

For the first time in quite a while, I genuinely had a day yesterday that I was happy with Weightwatchers-wise.

I steered clear of the cakes for the remainder of the day in the office - no sneaking. I didn't have a lot of time between getting home from work and heading out to the pub quiz, but rather than do nothing I slung on some workout clothes and went out for a quick 20 minute run. I just ran the shortest loop I have in my arsenal, but it was lovely out and I thought it was better to do something than to do nothing.

It's the first time this year that I've not only been able to run in capris and a long-sleeved base-layer and be the perfect temperature (hoorah!), but also the first time I've been able to run in the daylight after work. Anyway, it was actually quite nice and I felt a tiny sense of achievement for going. Better still, I feel oddly energised today - is it because I got out do you think?

After a quick, but healthy, dinner (tomato-based pasta sauces - how I've missed thee!) I shuffled off to meet friends for a local pub quiz. Please scrape your jaws off the floor - I stuck to water for the evening. Normally when I'm not drinking for whatever reason, I stick to Diet Coke, but I really wanted to allow my body to wind down for the evening caffeine-free last night. It totally worked too - I fell into bed at 10pm and crashed out like a light til 6am this morning!

I was at the office working for 7.30am this morning as we've all opted to work earlies this week. The Cheltenham Gold Cup race festival is being held 1/2 a mile from my office this week, which brings absolute chaos to the roads as well as a constant stream of helicopters flying in directly overhead all day - sodding noisy, I can tell you! Much better for us all to leave for the day before the last race kicks out and 50,000-odd people try to leave the racecourse simultaneously!!

As I was in early, I was absolutely starving by 9am. I managed to avoid the chocolate in the shop in favour of a bowl of hot porridge from the canteen - figured it was a more wholesome choice! I've had soup and a bread roll, followed by a yoghurt for lunch, so hopefully that will see me through to dinner and allow me another decent day on food.

Just another 2 hours before I can leave for the day - I can do this!

Hope you're all well, possums! I'm still following everyone's progress, even if I'm noticably quiet on the commenting front at the moment. X

Yes, I've been quiet on the commenting front for a couple of weeks, but have digital diarrhoea today! lol

That sounds like a good day on track, and doesn't it feel like a huge relief to get a satisfying day under your belt again? Well done. I'm sure I wouldn't be able to work in a cake-filled office environment like you and Linz do, and ever be able to resist. As for sticking to water in the pub? *salaam

Hooray for lighter evenings too!
