…the diet one, not the alcohol one.
So many wagons!
Anyway, I haven’t posted about my weight loss efforts in a while, and there’s a reason for that.
So let me explain. Other Half and I have been off work all this week. It has been a lovely opportunity to reconnect with each other, touch base with household chores and…ummm… stuff our faces. Unfortunately, O.H has the constitution of a beanpole and can happily munch on maltesers every waking minute of the day.
I, alas, am not so lucky.
Yesterday had been going well. I was attempting a ‘semi-fast’ day, à la the 5:2 diet. I’d had some avacado, Greek yoghurt, houmous and veggies.
Then, last night, I got a virus on my computer. It was one of those vicious ones, where a message locks down your screen saying something like: ‘the police are watching you, pay a hundred pound fine’ yada yada. After some frantic thumbing through the manual, I managed to restore my computer and remove the virus.
All’s well that ends well, right?
The thing is, I am very sensitive to anything I consider to be hostile or confrontational. Even though, rationally, I *know* these virus makers are not attacking me personally – that they are just hoping to find some mug who will cough up – I couldn’t help feeling shaken up. I found it difficult to comprehend that I live on the same planet as people who make viruses for fun.
So what did I do?
At 10pm last night, I legged it to the shop and bought:
– 2 x chocolate/cream eclairs
– a packet of cola bottles
– 2 x microwaveable pizzas
And I ate THE LOT.
*Feeling the shame*
Anyway. Today is a brand new day. I ignored my smirking scales this morning, daring me to come over and survey the damage; I’m now sitting with a cup of hot coffee, listening to McAfee whirring away in the background (yeah, thanks McAfee, really did a good job there didn’t you?) Today will be better.
On the plus side, my running has been going well. The day before yesterday I did an 11k-er and today I’m hoping to do something similar. I’ll keep you posted!
