I did a stupid thing when I was visiting my mum, I got talked into doing a well known diet plan with my sister. It was online at first then because I felt I was struggling I joined a local group. The minute the meeting started I knew I had made a mistake. I can’t be doing with public how much do you want to lose next week charades. I want hints and tips.
Well I’d been following the plan for two days when I got invited out to live band night at the Swing Arm. Needless to say I drank Diet Coke then found out I was going to the Hotel California. Fair enough me thinks. I discovered Bacardi was only 2.5 Syns instead of 3 Syns for my usual vodka . Bonus, I can still stay on plan and have a few drinks. Then I spied Karl pouring out shots..,,my daughter had ordered a round of shots! Ok I’ll have these then that’s it! My daughter’s friend ordered shots so I had to be polite and partake! Another round! I’m up to my syn total. Mum you don’t come out drinking with me that often now enjoy yourself. 6 rounds of shots and 5 Bacardi later and the night is over. We trundle over to McDonald’s which is the icing on the cake diet wise! 84.5 Syns consumed! 53 of them on a McDonald’s!! I confessed my error and was told to use “flexi Syns”. Basically draw a line under the day and start again! I ended up not going to weigh in because I had to wait in for a parcel being delivered.
A week on and I’m still struggling. My nights have been really busy and we’ve had some terrible cases this week. I’ve been getting my lunch at 5am when I finally back from transferring patients. I’m craving all sorts of rubbish.
I’m not going back to the meeting but need to find my mojo and a decent calorie counter.
