Just debating start of lent after 2.5 pancakes (and could've had more), and yummy beef stroganoff! Did do an hours swim in the middle. But really do need to get a grip on inner greed. Have found my exercise mojo. But still have work to do on food front.
I did some gardening in the afternoon so felt very virtuous, having resisted cake at the cafe and only having black tea. Also, last night was the first night of Gang Show with an audience, it went very smoothly and my arms got a good workout opening and closing the curtain. I spoiled all this good work by eating a cupcake and two small pieces of millionaire's shortbread in the evening.
I had such a good writing day, I'm now at almost 16.5k, it'll be done in no time at this rate. I was also too taken up by writing to eat, had some pasta, pesto and sweetcorn at 1ish and have finally made a cup of tea now. The pretty snow has now turned to rain though. What is everyone up to tomorrow for valentine's day?
IMST glad the show went well. I was ass stage manager once for a local play and loved doing all the set changes/pulling up and down the scenery etc. Btw I knew you were writing something but I don't actually know what you're writing - care to fill me in as I'm intrigued <nosy>
Not much valentines plans here either. I'll get DD to make DH a card and I'm aiming to do a healthy roast (if there is such a thing!) for dinner. Need to try to pop to the shops tomorrow to buy some chocs for DH.
Turns out my amazing 3 lb loss last week wasn't so amazing, DH moved the scales when hoovering at the week end and it's meant the scales have been measuring everyone 3lbs lighter, so really I was just on a maintain <sighs>. And I thought I was doing so well!
Hi everyone, some great results appearing. Love the dress Kato!
No weight loss again this week, but i struggled to keep going last week. I need to have a think about how I am doing it. I think I need to go to fewer calories per day but allow myself a treat day, then I can look forward to that.
Very struck still by this whole thing of emotional eating. Good day - easy to diet, bad day - desperate to eat (anything really!) Anyone else had success in unpacking any of that for themselves, and how did you do it?
Reastie at least you found out now and didn't just get a mysterious 3lb gain next week. Steppemum if I feel like emotional eating, a bit of dancing, a walk or a cycle usually sorts me out, as exercise makes me happy, then I can have a drink of water to make my tummy feel full. I'm writing a short story for young adults, called "the Strangeling's Tales", it's like Grimm fairy tales, quite dark but folk tale language style. Eventful evening last night, I missed the second act of the show as I had to take DS to A&E. He blanked out on the way to the stage, and bounced his head off the concrete floor, then lost consciousness for a while. He's fine now except for an enormous bump, but quite shaken by it all.
