Lass week's result: -0.2 kg
Total weigh loss since start: -1kg
Let me just start with saying that none of the things you are about to read are excuses. I just thing it is funny how after the kick start of a life style change Life throws some challenges in your way, if for nothing else but to amuse you. So here are the things I have learnt last week:
-It is not possible to spend 2 month organizing a party with 150 guests from 8 countries and then not eat with them on the party. But you can consider the options from the menu, have just one portion of dessert (even if it is unlimited) and say no to the second glass.
-It is also hard to say no to a celebratory lunch the following day.
-Some restaurants charge 30% more fore a grilled chicken salad (which looked absolutely boring on the menu) than the second healthiest option, which is mac&cheese. And I personally refuse to pay £10 for a salad. I live in the real world.
-It is possible to leave half of your mac&cheese on a plate and walk away. (And I come from a long history of food waste guilt)
--Cranberry juice is the best drink option when you want to socialize and not drink alcohol. You can cheat yourself into thinking it is a Cosmopolitan!
-Sometimes unannounced guest are here to stay for the weekend, which will screw up your fitness schedule. But they are your friends who make your life happier and richer. So cook them something nice and then go for a walk after they left.
-My partner is terrified as he thinks my diet will make me loose my figure (he said 'boobs' but I am not sure I can say that here) even though I had the same cup size since age 11.
So I had a 3 day splurge, but wherever I could I tried to lessen the damage and I went on a damage control during the last two days.
I hope you guys are all well and shrinking slightly.
