For now anyway. I want to apologise for my pathetic whining yesterday! You were so nice to be encouraging and tell me what I should have worked out for myself if I wasn't too busy wallowing! The irony is, when I first tasted the gammon that I ate the day before yesterday my first thought was 'oh, salty - but delicious' - yet when I weighed myself yesterday all I thought was 'No -this can't be happening to me!'. Hmph. Water retention sucks!
I made the decision yesterday to go vegetarian for the rest of the week as I usually feel lighter then. It was based on a theory that because I'm not eating as much meat these days it was having a blocking effect digestively. Now that I know its probably not about that, I'm still going to try to steer clear of the meat for a few days simply to feel better. So expect some weirdly unbalanced looking meals when my imagaination runs out!
All bran with peaches
Split pea vegetable soup with artisan bread & laughing cow. I've now used up the dough I had sitting in the fridge, and decided that I prefer this bread made with dough that's been refrigerated over night, not longer - its gets more of a dense sourdough effect that I'm less keen on.
Quorn-bulgar bolognese with spiralised vegetables and sweetheart cabbage
Fromage frais with frozen fruit (defrosted)
Protein smoothie, dark chocolate-coated marzipan bar (oops - but although I'm not that keen on marzipan for some reason I've been craving it for about a week now - and at about 176 calories it was a fairly harmless way to get the craving done with!)
I started the day with 40 mins on the ellipticla walker, and also walked into town with my trademark laden rucksack, so plenty of exercise for me!
I can't resist leaping ahead to give you today's weight even though its muddled in with yesterday's food:
10 st 2 lbs (142 lbs) - much better! All that water yesterday did help!
Thanks again for your support yesterday, it really made me feel better. I need you all to keep sane so please don't get bored with my ramblings and abandon me!!!
