Day 86 -15 Holy Saturday
Had to get up early and race to my french lesson this morning. It was a beautiful drive through the grounds of Chatsworth House as you can see and I managed to snap a pheasant in full sunshine before he raced off although unfortunately I snipped the end off his tail dammit! I got loads of him without cutting his tail off but none as good or with his face in full sunshine....grrr...must try harder. The lesson was good and I feel as though I'm making progress. She's always very complimentary about my weight so the lesson always starts well if nothing else!
Came back, worked in the garden and then finished off with a walk from Hope which you can also see above. I love it when the lambs are born and you can watch them playing together and badgering their mothers. Really cute and brings it home to you that summer is not far away.
I experimented by having 2 packs together for lunch as I had not had time for breakfast before french. Thought it would stave off hunger pangs but didn't - was peckish all day and still have this pesky urge to snack!!" Think it's because I'm really feeling the difference in my weight now and am feeling very happy at this weight. Historically, this is the stage where I start to get comlacent on a diet and to drift off it. I'm determined not to sabotage myself like that this time so must be stricter with myself. Really, all the gains I have made are so precarious and I must not let this great thing slip away!!
So, spring is here which is great, but don't get carried away Missus and forget that you still have a job to do! That's the message for myself this Holy Saturday! (Did you know that today isn't Easter Saturday but Holy Saturday - Easter Saturday is next week apparently - learn something new every day....)
I'm off out again tonight but hopefully will be a bit quieter than last night when I ended up cramming 8 people of varying drunkenness into D's car (a big jeep which should only hold 7) and dropping them off round the countryside at 1am!
