Hi Flf’s!!! I started this year being a bit prolific with my blog but have somewhat stagnated. Fear not tho, this doesn’t mean lack of weight loss! Indeed, I actually lost 5.5lbs last wed….I am *SO* chuffed! Really excited about being less than a stone away from what I was at my lowest last year.

But then, snowmaggedon in
South Wales happened.
Uh-oh. I can’t pretend that I didn’t already start the week being lazy tho. I had people due over for both lunch and dinner last Friday and then for lunch again on the Saturday. So I chose to stay in and cook on the thurs night instead of go to zumba….despite having 2 potential zumba buddies AND a swim partner after. AND THEN….I didn’t even end up cooking anyway because it became clear that due to the snow, no one was going to make it over on Friday OR Saturday! I am REALLY annoyed with myself. I huddled under a blanket on my sofa and froze instead of getting up off my butt and doing something. I think I have some circulation problem because once I get cold, I get REALLY cold and it takes me flipping ages to warm up (literally hours). The only way to do it, is to get up and do something but I am so cold that I usually just end up hoping I’ll get warm by shivering under a pile of fluffy, synthetic materials (no lighting matches near me!) I pretty much NEVER get warm this way, but yet I never learn. IDIOT! Mind you, if you DID light a match near me…I guess I’d warm up pretty quick then….
So as a result, I haven’t properly tracked over the weekend but I haven’t done anything particularly active either. Grrrr! I am now in the stupid mindset of, ok well I am having a bad week (food wise….everything else is great!) so I might as well stay off the wagon til weigh in. Which is SO dumb. Right at the beginning of the diet this time, I said I really liked that you have a daily allowance so that if you fall off one day, you can start again the next. I need to do this. Ugh!!!!
I’ve just had 6 chocolates from a shared box of chocolates in the office. A SHARED box. What the hell is wrong with me??? I am such a greedy pig. Right that’s IT. I am going to track EVERYTHING I ate today. Even the butter on toast this morning and then ten thousand sugar’s in my take away Americano. Well you HAVE to have ten thousand because those stupid little tubes are no way ONE teaspoon and those take away cups are HUGE. And I’m not having milk so it’s ok, right? RIGHT?!
Anyhoo, apart from the not sticking to the diet and no exercise thing (ahem!) I’ve had a good week. The 3 day weekend thanks to the snow was a nice little treat. Gus made his first Dyn Eira (snowman), I made a lovely low fat/lowish point lasagne (which I will do a recipe post about cos it’s awesome and filling) and I’ve decided that I now want my style to emulate that of Don & Megan Draper’s in the 5th series of Mad Men.
I know this last statement is completely ridiculous and vacuous. What the hell does it even mean?! I just basically want their lives and their money and to live in
in the mid 60’s and dress like Megan and look like Megan and especially have my
Hair like Megan. But I guess I don’t really want to be married to Don Draper
and the reasons are two fold. He’s a pig and Emlyn is awesome. Manhattan
OK now I’ve wandered into blathering territory again. I am gonna go.

Oh quick update on Dryalthlon…I’m still on it. Day 21…that’s 3 weeks sober dudes. It sucks, I have made plans for my wagon falling from 1st onwards and I can’t flipping wait. I am NEVER voluntarily, without pregnancy, giving up booze again.
I’ll check in on wed. If I am feeling brave. BA!!!!!!
