So today is the last day of my first "Just One Week". I decided to snack only on fruit and veg...
and I pretty much succeeded in that!
Fruit is yummy. I need to keep reminding myself of that fact.
This week hasn't been perfect WW-wise. There was surprise indian takeaway the other night, and less surprising thai takeaway yesterday(but it was celebrating my aunt,dad,brother and friends birthday all in one night so I'm counting that as a bit of a win in terms of keeping on track rather than battling four separate parties!) with quite a bit of cakey stuff to follow...
There was also a freaking DELCIOUS burrito in leeds. Omnomnom.
But there was also lots of walking and goodness.
Quite a lot of that.
So I don;t really know what the scales will say tomorrow.
I DO know now that snacking on fruit is actually really useful for me. Even when I get the low fat crisps and cereal bars and stuff they have a tendency to trigger huge binges for me, which I suffered far less from with the fruit.
I'm going to try and keep this up.
NEXT weeks Just One Week will officially start tomorrow morning not today, but it will be to actually STICK TO MY MENU PLAN!
I spend ages making meal plans every week and hardly ever stick to them for very long.
For one week I am determined I can do this. I've written out my plan, bought everything it requires and I've pre-tracked it all on my e-source.
There are a couple of obstacles to this, but I will deal with them the best I shall.
Firstly My bestest everest friendest gets back from travelling today and will be in Yorkshire land for a couple of days before she has to go back londonwards. So obviously I shall be going to see her this week. This will inevitably involve a sleepover with much drinking and madness. But I have vodka and diet coke to bring along so hopefully I won't go too overboard. I've also saved at least a point most days on the plan so I have a bit of a buffer for this. Also, she's vegan and most of her foodstuff is super-healthy. Noone ever got obese from too many lentils. Probably. It'll be fine. But I'm not sure yet how much time I shall get her for, so I'll just try to keep on track while at hers rather than trying to pre-pack all my meals and take them round and look like a diet-nazi. That won't do.
The other very probable obstacle is that I live in a house with a mum and a dad and a brother. And they will probably end up eating my carefully planned food sooner or later. In the event where I am supposed to have a bagel with phili extra light and quorn ham, and someone gone and eaten my bagels I will A) Roar at them till they apologise, and B) substitute the stated bagel for bread or similar foodstuffs.
But as much as possible,
