Apart from all that it was a fairly normal day. I slept poorly again, probably because this is an unsettling position to be in, and wished I could stay home, but couldn't because of the almighty time sheet. And the wish to not look like I was nicking an elderly brick of a laptop.
At lunchtime I went for a walk with my usual buddy and our sometimes companion colleague, who generally moans a lot but seemed more cheerful today, possibly because I was leaving (although we get on ok I think he has the normal permies' suspicion / distrust of contractors). It was a nice walk, lovely sunshine with a slightly cool breeze again. I was a bit chilly to start with then warmed up as my muscles warmed, which is how I like it.
I did overeat today. It was more stress related than hunger, I stuck to the carnivorous plan during the day but added unnecessary bacon to a perfectly adequate lunch (of course some people argue that bacon is never unnecessary). At lunchtime I was already considering having a whisky this evening to relax myself a bit and I have to admit that I did. Quite a bit. The first in over a month, and I'm now back on the wagon. Especially because it led to me eating a small quality of peanut butter, which doesn't fit into my intended way of eating. Too damn sweet - urk!
: bacon and eggs
Lunch: meatloaf and bacon
Dinner: smoked sausage and peanut butter
Snacks: pork scratchings, babybel cheese
I have decided that considering some stuff I'm willing to mention in this blog but wouldn't tell friends / colleagues in real life, I'm going to stop being so coy about my weight. I want the full on extra accountability of reporting it on here - although I'll only update it when it changes, so if I'm plateauing I won't keep repeating myself. If I'm brave enough I'll report increases as well as decreases - guess which I expect tomorrow)
Weight today: 11 st 4.6 lbs / 158.6 lbs / 71.8 kgs.
