27 December 2011 – Christmas fall out

IMG_5683

Back to work for me tomorrow and back to proper meals too. Didn’t do too badly over Christmas but not too good either. No quality street in the house and only ate two out of the tin of biscuits Bard got us but a bit mad in the evening nibbles of savoury stuff. No exercise except the walk to and from the football yesterday and a trot up the big hill this morning for milk either. I’m SO not looking forward to weighing in. Continue reading

22 December 2011 – Last day

image1856

Well that’s that for me until after Christmas now. I finished at 6.30 tonight and don’t go back until next Wednesday. YAY!!!! It was an odd day. Not many calls this morning although I did get a sale which was good as it takes my team stats up. This week I have had an amazing week with stats for some reason and some lovely customers. We had some time booked off this morning and did a team quiz boys against girls. Of course the girls won, we are the brainy ones after all. Pizza for lunch and a quiz with my team against our rivals on the floor. Again I was on the wnning team. Not that I’m clever but I just have some clever team mates and a smattering of useless info stored in my brain. Continue reading

15 December 2011 – Christmas mania

IMG_6472

It’s been a busy old day. My hairdresser Rachel came round in the morning. Our washing machine broke and Commando spent the morning fixing it. He’s such a clever thing. CJ and I went into town and I got most of the Christmas shopping done. There was hardly a moment to sit down all day and then I had to go out again for the team meal.

14 December 2011 – Christmas team night temptation

There are way too many chances to fall off the wagon at this time of year. Tomorrow night we have our works Christmas meal. Everything seems to revolve around eating at this time of year and I think all we can do is try our best and then get back to basics in January. Continue reading

13 December 2011 – temptation

cropped-image2590

Yesterday I had a bad food day. We had the Mad House Xmas lunch complete with pudding and cream. Not good for the diet but tasty all the same. Back on the wagon today though big time. Whose idea was it to have Christmas just when I was trying to get my eating under control and shift these whiplash pounds? Continue reading

9 January 2011 – facing the music

20121214-071012

Finally I faced the scales this morning for the big post Christmas weigh in. This was something I’d been dreading but there was a no putting it off any longer even though I was convinced I had put on at least a couple of pounds. Ok, it wouldn’t have been the end of the world but I wasn’t looking forward to it and was also worried that it might be more than that, much more.

 That’s the problem with Christmas, you just never know how much it’s going to cost. Continue reading

1 January 2011- back on the wagon and footie

20130105-220421

Well it’s time to get back on the wagon good and proper and put the excesses of Christmas behind me. Maybe 2011 will be the year I banish those extra pounds for ever. Starting today with a walk to the stadium for the New Year’s Day footie! Continue reading

29 December 2010 – Struggling to stay on the wagon

20121002-195746

It’s tough getting back on the wagon after a few days of not logging and eating lots of things you wouldn’t normally have. It feels like your body adjusts to the extra food so easily and wants it to continue. Or perhaps that’s just me! This is the 

third day back to counting and cutting back for me and yesterday was hard but I made it. Hopefully today will be a bit easier. Continue reading

26 December 2010 – a different kind of Christmas

image2004

Christmas Day was lovely, if a little different to normal. For a start there was no breakfast because time ran away with us but we had a lunch of pork with marmalade glaze, roast potato and sweet potato and tons of veg with gravy. It wasn’t a huge dinner but all very nice and followed by Christmas pudding and low fat squirty cream. Ok, I did eat a couple of florantines and had toast, a bag of sunbites and a handful of pringles later but not a lot else. Although I didn’t log anything I am guessing I didn’t go too much over maintenance calories but I felt stuffed in the evening. 

It feel really odd not logging stuff. Continue reading
