Get some vodka for next time! I'm not normally a spirit drinker but I do find having some in the freezer means I feel the lack of wine less keenly! Waitrose's own is very good and only £10 or £11 for a bottle which lasts much longer than two bottles of wine
I've been drinking vodka and slimline tonic instead of wine on fast days. It's not the same (clearly!) but it makes me feel less deprived and so I stop fantasising about a glass of red! I bought a proper measure, 25mls vodka is 55 calories and a glass of slimline is 3 calories.
Yes BrassicaBabe - I'm almost hallucinating about a glass of wine!! I had done so well but crumbled when I was making the DDs tea - gobbled up half a chicken goujan in the blink of an eye... Really cross with myself so having a herbal tea and making myself wait for the curry... Only the first day so trying to not be too harsh on myself...! Hope the rest of your day has gone OK??
Thanks breadandwine - that's good to hear. I've been ok today so far although do seem to be thinking of food an awful lot more than normal! And noticed how many tv adverts are for food!!! Slow cooker got a veggie curry in it for dinner which smells yum! So far so good! Thanks for your encouragement!!!
Have written out my days calories and am actually quite excited about it.... Just had first coffee with a dash of milk which was actually just as nice as my usual huge latte! Anyone else in the very early days? Motivation still high????!
