Day 23 and 24: Diet Wobbles

on June 30, 2013

The last couple of days have been a bit tricky as we went to a party yesterday evening and today we went out for lunch to a burger joint! Plus the fridge is empty and I didn’t really plan the meals for the weekend. As a consequence I have had a couple of wobbly days – not disastrous but not great.

Also this week my weight loss was non existent and seemed to fluctuate by a pound or so on different days which was disappointing as overall the week has been pretty good foodwise. Perhaps portions are still to big?

Interesting lesson learned is that the moment I take my eye off the ball and don’t plan meals I revert to nibbling high sugar rubbish. Starting the day with a half empty fridge and no idea what my meals and snacks for the day are going to be is a recipe for disaster.

Still many of the diet books and websites I have looked at advocate a ‘cheat day’ where you can eat what you like. Therefore I will consider this a cheat weekend and get back on track tomorrow!
