So, after yesterday's blues I eventually managed to find a swimming pool and went for a long gentle swim.
Today, however, I wasn't so good. started off with my usual - two weetabix - although this tim I have changed from semi-skimmed to skimmed milk to reduce the calories even further. I had noticed the cakes on the side at work, but managed to avoid them. On Friday I had had a rare "count-free" day, as my friend and colleague was having her leaving do bbq before starting maternity leave, and te cake was left over from that. On Friday, although I didn't count calories, I DID stick to healthIER options. e.g. having one burger, no sausages, no chicken, no kebab. I had the salad, the cous cous, the low-fat humous on celery and a small amount of the potato salad. I also had a small piece of the cake.
Today, that same cake that I was so restrained with on Friday, my "non counting special", was my downfall. I had my Weetabix, and then I saw two of my colleagues walk right past my desk with huge slabs of THAT cake. I lasted 13 minutes. I timed it.
I didn't exactly stuff it all in my face in some kind of cake-based mental breakdown, but it came pretty close.
All in all, I reckon that today is probably not going to count as one of my better days, however, I'm going to carry on with my calorie restricted dinner and tomorrow I will try again.
