Diet wise it hasn’t been a good week. After gaining 1 pound last week I found it really difficult to get back on track.
I felt frustrated at work and irritable at home and as is often the case I ate lots of the wrong things. Then of course there was the weekend to cope with.
I was in Stevenage for a UNISON meeting all weekend. And while Stevenage isn’t really my favourite place it was a chance to catch up with some of my favourite people. But of course this involved far too much food as well as a good few glasses (or maybe I should say bottles) of prosecco.
The hotel we stay in is always really friendly but the food can sometimes be a bit hit and miss. But this weekend it was fantastic. So with full cooked breakfast, two course lunches and three course dinners including this fabulous Ganache served with Bailey’s custard
I was fairly sure that the scales weren’t going to be kind to me when I got weighed this morning. And the result is…..
I was right. It wasn’t good. I’ve gained three pound! My highest weight gain week since I trying to lose weight.
What I really don’t understand is why it takes weeks or maybe even months to lose three pound but it only takes a couple of bad days to put the same amount on.
But I’m not disheartened. This might be the most I’ve ever put on in one week but it does mean £6 for the Charlie Cookson Foundation so at least a really good cause is going to benefit from my failure.
