If I weigh every day I know what progress I'm making or not making and can't hide from it. I'm more likely to have a sensible breakfast which sets me up for a sensible lunch and more likely to go swimming at lunchtime etc. At least that is the theory.
So, although I feel a little disheartened this morning, I know I've not done anything major wrong and I know I'll see some progress soon. But, if I'm honest, I haven't pushed as hard on the diet as I could have done. Yesterday wasn't bad but it wasn't stellar either. (Apologies for list of food but it helps sometimes):
Breakfast - 2 small slices toast (one with pate, one with jam) (no milk or yoghurt so couldn't have cereal or muesli/ fruit combo)
Lunch - sushi and yoghurt and 2 custard creams
2 biscuits with coffee at french class
mushroom soup with 1 slice brown bread and butter
2 J2Os in pub as well as multiple sparkling waters etc
Not bad but 4 biscuits, J2Os instead of water or diet drink and toast for brekkie. It's an extra few hundred calories which weren't needed and could have made a small difference. I'm not going to get hung up on these sort of things overall but, every now and then, it helps to analyse exactly what I'm eating so that I can identify the small extras which can creep in. You know exactly what you're doing when you're scarfing a cake or 16 pints but you don't always notice the little things.
So - must be good this week as I really want to see half a stone off before this wedding at the end of June! Have a great Bank Holiday everyone but don't use it as an excuse to trough - it's not worth it!
PS. Typed this at lunchtime when I genuinely thought I would be going swimming but then work intervened and I didn't. So - am just going out for a run, with a post-supper, beachball PMT stomach - it'll be a very slow run!! Go me!!!
