Started my day with a slight hangover feeling this morning. Definitely did not want to get out of bed. Not sure what that’s about? No exercise for me this morning. I had to drag myself out of bed, so I figure my body wants to rest, so I will honour that!
As per usual I started my day with a short black shot, figured I needed it more than ever today. I wondered if this was anything to do with my hormonal cycle? Perhaps? Even the chocolate thing, it’s almost like an obsession at the moment, so I’m definitely putting it down to the powers that be for a woman.
Caught up with Fiona today (she’s doing this with me), and we discussed that yesterday we both seemed to be in high spirits and in her words ‘bouncing off the walls’. Different story today, we are both feeling a bit lethargic, and we are definitely over the food and ready to add a bit more variety. Tomorrow we are over 1/3 of the way to the end of our 30 day challenge. Phase 2 of the diet starts on day 11, so we are both pretty excited to be adding a bit more variety in our diet. I can’t wait to have an egg! Sounds ridiculous! But it’s true.
Had our PT training session this arvo with me, Fi & Shaz (check out the pic – they’re gonna kill me for posting this!). Our session was strength, not too much cardio (thank goodness, coz we were all exhausted by the afternoon!). I definitely didn’t want to do anything today, but extremely glad that I did. I’m sure this blog is keeping me honest, I feel like I can’t let anyone down (including myself!).
Popped in to see a friend after work and found myself doing the usual ‘no thanks’ to the usual offer of a glass of wine. So my social visits are becoming less and shorter in length – an absolute necessity, because I don’t have a huge amount of willpower and don’t want to do anything I will regret.
Why is it that when you’re not on a diet there’s nothing on, but as soon as you start a diet you get social invitations left right & centre! It’s crazy I’m finding myself avoiding get-togethers if I can. I’m going to struggle with a birthday party tomorrow night and the night after. It’s not going to be easy, but provided I prepare what I need and probably the most important thing for me to remember is to not let myself get hungry. This should keep me in check and keep me on track.
Planned a big walk with a few of the girls on the weekend. Thought we’d try a 12km beach and bush treck. Hoping this eventuates, see how we’re all feeling by then.
I’ve been avoiding this bit, but I caved tonight! Yes I did! I seriously have this insatiable craving for chocolate at the moment, so I decided that I needed to have it – NOW. Not having it was not an option anymore. So what did I do? I made a really small piece of chocolate (well I call it chocolate). It satisfied my desire, and seriously OMG it was orgasmic! Here’s the ingredients – 1 teaspoon of each of these – coconut oil, almond meal, maple syrup & raw cacao. Mix it together and put in a tiny patty pan and freeze. I was absolutely blissed out as I was eating it. I figured if I’m going to have chocolate, may as well be a healthy version of it. Ahhhhh I will sleep well tonight. :-))))
