Having committed to do this last week and started the calorie count last Friday I got out the tape measure and scales to take down the vital statistics. A stone and a half to go to get to the top end of a healthy weight. During the weekend we were away but I'd managed to stay just about within budget and a little smug. Today was a nice light breakfast, nice calorie controlled lunch before settling down to work at the computer. Alas the bag of pistachios left over from Christmas was close by and before I knew it I had scoffed the lot. Out with MyFitnessPal to record the deed and horrified to see I had munched my entire day's calorie allowance and more in one absent minded sitting.
Collected my Wheels2Work bike today - think I better work out the long way there tomorrow - perhaps I should be doing the 5:2 diet and make tomorrow my fast day to try and compensate a bit? Problem then is I'm likely to get very grumpy and end up scoffing even more. Grrrr. Need to break my absent minded snacking and comfort eating habits.
Glad to have found this group and appreciate the encouraging posts. Thanks.
