So I weighed and I lost 3.5lbs! Good but a leeeeeeeeeeeeettle disappointed that changing my regime of “eating huge chunks of butter & cheese on toast for breakfast/hoovering up everything else in the house” for muesli, fruit, soup and dinner didn’t generate more loss. But still it IS a loss and I am on the right track.
I have also (as my long suffering Facebook friends/Twitter followers already know) developed a cold! Booooooooooooo! I’m SUCH a bad patient. I am in no way stoic, I moan and moan and moan. And I think I have been true to form so far too! But it does mean unfortunately that I don’t get to do my brilliant class tonight. RUBS!!!! Am gutted about that.
But apart from feeling like death, looking like death and...Er….smelling like death????!!! (Poor Emlyn!) I am not too bothered about the cold. It’s taken my appetite away a bit, I can’t taste my food. And I get to catch up on some junk TV and write my blog. *In the past I would self-medicate with some lovely full bodied red wine (hmmm rich, spicy, tasty, velvety red wine!) but that inevitably makes you feel even worse the next day (if, like me, you are unable to stick to the recommended one glass a day. ONE????). And I think it probably doesn’t help your immune system either does it? If your body is having to fight self-inflicted dehydration on top of “cold”-inflicted (!) dehydration!
*can I just point out here that I wouldn’t self-medicate with said wine IN THE DAY! I would have the decency to wait until the child was in bed!
Ok so I will check in again when I have something else to tell you. I’ll leave you with a delightful picture of my suffering. (Me? A ham?!!!) Who needs instagram when you’re as much a beaut as I am eh?
