It’s been an up and down week diet wise
After last week’s weight loss I started off really positive and upbeat – convinced I would lose much more this week.
On Wednesday I went to a funeral where tapas was served. And me being me I went for the unhealthy option – chorizo.
This also led to a bit of a chocolate craving – when I say a bit of I mean a massive chocolate craving. So I went home and demolished a bar of Teasers chocolate. And I don’t mean a small bar I mean a huge bar.
By Thursday I was back in controls – well sort of – I didn’t have more chocolate but couldn’t resist a piece of cake at work.
Friday was much easier then Saturday arrived. And this week that meant a night out with the lovely Joanne Weightman
And anyone who knows me will know that doesn’t just mean a couple of bottles of prosecco but also some rhubarb and ginger gin – delicious but loaded with calories – not good for the diet.
But yesterday the sun was shining and I was ready to get back on track. After spending the morning listening to former Foreign Secretary David Miliband talking about the EU referendum
I spent the afternoon in the garden and ate really healthily. But I should have known it wouldn’t last. And sure enough at about 8 o’clock I was feeling really peckish and decided to make myself an omelette. Now a two egg omelette is only 140 calories (I use spray oil) so that wouldn’t be too bad. Except I made a 4 egg omelette. And then I added some cheese, the lower fat kind, but cheese non the less. Oh and then I decided a nice dollop of chilli mayo would make it even better. So that was yesterday’s diet ruined as well.
So after a week of up’s and down’s I wasn’t sure whether my weight would go up or down. And the result is……….
Of course it went up – so that’s a down. But only by 1 pound – so that’s an up. It’s a set back – so another down. But it means £2 instead of £1 for the Charlie Cookson Foundation – and that is the best up of them all
