My breakfast - in case you couldn't imagine the all bran with blackberries and strawberries yesterday
I was planning to spend next week - Monday to Thursday - up in London again. Now I'm struggling to decide if that's a good idea. I want to get back to my target weight before the holiday in November, but since we got home from Norway I've been struggling to get back on track. Now I'm feeling more in control, (Tuesday's lunch notwithstanding) and I'm wondering if it might be a better idea to stay home, in control, and shift at least 1 stubborn, annoying pound, rather than risk another week wasted and another pound gained. What would you do?
One bit of me is saying that I should go because I can't make my whole life about dieting - after all, the diet is supposed to make my life better, not take it over altogether, and it has to be sustainable in the long term; the other part is saying that I have a specific goal, and an end date that is set in stone, and I shouldn't jeopardise it on a whim. I am feeling extremely frustrated by my slow progress, and that puts me at risk of a binge. But then so does resenting the diet because it sucks all the fun out of life!!! (OK, slight exaggeration!!! I have enjoyed the last couple of weeks a very great deal despite my frustration!)
If I do go, this week would be more about sightseeing than shopping - a trip to the theatre (I've wanted to see the Mousetrap for years), a day in Windsor, some more museums and galleries, possibly the new Moctezuma exhibit at the British Museum... though I would of course have no choice but to go back to Whole Foods Market and the candle shop... and this time I would take a fully charged camera battery and the charger as well, to keep it that way.
What to do, what to do??? Please advise me!!!
