Argh! Am off-track. After my last (slightly smug update) I had my usual post-weigh-in treat (corn chips etc). I also had some chocolate, wine etc and was all prepared to get back on track on Sunday.
And the day started well. I had a bigger-than-usual breakfast but on a weekend it usually constitutes brunch, so I wasn’t too worried…. but then I had popcorn. Then some wine. Then dinner which included about 5 points of potato! No ‘food-I-shouldn’t-have-eaten’ but just too much of everything. As a result I ate 30.5 points. Not good. But, I realised today was another day and I could redeem myself….
As it is day 1 of my holiday I took my neighbour up on her suggestion of a morning walk (yay for me!). Then I ran into a friend who popped around for a chat. Suddenly it was 1pm and I hadn’t actually eaten breakfast. Not tragic in any way obviously…. but I did have things on my ‘to-do’ list which I hadn’t, well… done. I am not sure why I felt guilty about not starting the ‘to-do’ list on day 1, given that I actually have 6 weeks off!
Anyway, one of things on my list was grocery shopping. As you may recall, I haven’t gone much shopping lately. Instead I have called in at a corner store or shopped on the way home from work for a few urgent needs. I haven’t done a proper ‘shop’ in a while. I was emailing my parents beforehand and wondering how I would cope – given that I was in a slightly celebratory mood (being on holidays and all that!) – and worrying I might buy something I shouldn’t. And guess what?! I did. I bloody bought a $9 box of mini toblerones. I don’t even like them that much. But there they were. On sale. Reduced from $12 something to $9. 330g of chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate mini toblerones. Half of which are now happily ensconsed in my too-full and bulging stomach. I am not even going to try and count how many points they were.
I have put 1/4 of the packet in the freezer in the hope that – like a normal person – I decide I could eat one or two on occasions as a treat. (Rather than binge-eat 300g of chocolate in typical me-style!)
So…. For dinner, I am baking a skinless chicken breast with some veges. Drinking diet champagne. BUT my day is already ruined. Wrecked beyond belief. I know that I should get back up on that horse now that I have toppled off and I will. I know I will. At least I bloody hope I do…. but though I am writing as if I am wallowing in guilt, I have to admit that I am not. Actually. I am thinking that it is the first day of my holidays I have just meandered off on a slight tangent – assuming I will rejoin the path.
But only time will tell.
