So as per my last post where I said I was back on it. The scales on Saturday was another 2lb off which I was happy with. My head was in the game last week.
This week has started with a slightly different approach. I am going to do a different blog post on it but this weekend I took part in an annual event where approx 70 of us drove vintage tractors 20+ miles to raise money for the air ambulance. Last year we raised nearly £7000.00. It is a really important day to me. And depends on my health as to if I can do it every year.
However with it this year came a food choice that I needed to make. I knew I wasn’t going to be home from Saturday lunch time. I knew that Saturday evening the food would be out of my control and have syns in. I also knew that on Sunday it would be a very long tiring sore day with a bacon roll in the morning and bbq for lunch. I said to my SlimmingWorld group I knew it wouldn’t be SW friendly. I knew it wasn’t going to be practical to try and take something with me. So I made the choice to be off plan this weekend. I said I would do a couple of SP days(half speed foods (veg/most fruits) and half protein. Normal syns. Normal health extra A (calcium) and 2 Health Extra Bs (cereal, bread, fibre)to boost the remainder of the week. I made that decision and if it affects my scale results on Saturday. So be it.
Monday morning I let myself down. I stayed at my parents over the weekend and ended up staying Sunday night. Monday morning where I had originally said I would be back on plan… I got tempted with chocolate biscuits… I caved in. The chocolate biscuits won. But you all know it wasn’t just one chocolate biscuits. 😳It may have been tiredness levels but I wasn’t strong enough. I did however have and SP lunch and jacket potato for dinner. So not to bad.
So this week I am on it for the rest of the week and hopefully not damage the result too much by being weak and caving and being off plan.
Damnit. Chocolate Biscuits 1-0. You win this time…(and probably next time)
