…. but there it is in my tracker … another weekend on plan!
I’m learning to live my life and still lose weight – although I was working all yesterday, I ended up at an impromptu dinner party last night and thoroughly enjoyed beef bourguignon, 2 slices of lemon drizzle cake, red wine, champagne, white wine and some very posh chocolates. But in moderation. I ate well the rest of the day, and I was so glad I’d taken my own lunch to the office, when the free lunch picked by the team was Indian – as tasty as it looked it would have knocked me right off course.
Today I actually ended up with an unexpected day off work as I was told yesterday I wouldn’t be needed. With nothing planned, it’s been a bit of a catch-up day – I had a bit of a lie-in this morning (much needed when you’re working extra days in the office and long hours with it) and then dragged my sorry ass out for a run. Rob (my trainer) has decreed that I should start running again – partly for the upcoming runs in May and June, and partly because it’s the best calorie killer known to man, woman or beast and will help with my weight loss – so running I went. It wasn’t a particularly great run, but it was 5k in the tank none the less. Only the second run of the year, but with rather a lot more to follow.
I’ve also been baking today to take to work tomorrow to cheer up my over-worked colleagues. I actually screwed up the first batch of cupcake bases, so had to do a second set. But I did eat 2 of the un-iced bases from the ruined batch that were ok. In the interests of remaining completely honest with my tracking I sat down to work out how much the actual recipe is in Weightwatchers points …. and here’s the surprise: the bases are only 4 points each ….. the icing however is another 5 on top!
Anyway – I was very organised earlier and sat down and planned my meals for the week and then did the food-shop. Annoyingly, I thought that would make it loads cheaper, but it was still pretty pricey (grrrrrr to ever inflating costs of living!), but I do have a fridge chock-full of good food and a meal-plan for the week to help me continue on track.
Time for bed now to face yet another working week!
