I’m BACK! I mean it… I’m back to get it all BACK under control – before it all comes BACK! I stepped on the scales after a week of major food rioting – and I am paying for it – I did the crime, now I have to do the time! I weighed in at 11st 3lbs – I was horrified but not entirely surprised… in one week alone I’ve eaten a box of Thornton’s chocolates – a whole box to myself… 2 large chocolate Easter Eggs, a bar of Galaxy chocolate, a bar of dark Green’s organic chocolate (well come on… it was ORGANIC!) we had dinner out with friends, which included a 3 course Italian meal and 2 bottles of the most delicious Merlot, dinner at the Camden Bar & Kitchen, chocolate tiffin in Costa, a tube of Pringles – cheese and sour cream… and the list goes on and on and on… that is just the tip of the food mountain I’ve ate my way through this week… I have no one else to blame but myself – it was beyond foolish!
So here I am today – about to order a new hamper of Diet Chef and focus on getting a grip! I’m starting right from scratch – today being day 1 – part two! I have a little DC to tide me over – I started this morning with a dc porridge and have had a dc milkshake and a banana for lunch…. I’m STARVING – I’ve gotten used to filling up on rubbish again – so it’s going to be a body shock getting back on track! I’ve practically given up any form of exercise apart from lifting my arm to put food in my mouth… so I’ve changed my working hours to fit in with my new fitness regime – I’m going to get up every morning and go for a walk – yes I am!!! Then I may consider re-joining the gym!
In a few months time I’m off to Hollywood – no I haven’t been ‘discovered’ but you never know whilst I’m out there ;) I don’t want to fly out with extra baggage! I want to be around 10st 3lb – but most of all I want to feel healthy! I’ve noticed over the months a deterioration in my skin, hair, energy levels – and a return of old tummy troubles – I know if I just ate fresh food in smaller portions with lots of lovely veggies and a little fruit – I’d be sure to feel better and lose weight BUT I can’t – I really can’t – that was why I was so successful on Diet Chef – because as soon as I have to take responsibility for my choices and my portion sizes – all sense just leaves the building! Even though DC is obviously processed food – and processed food is supposed to be something to avoid – somehow it makes me feel fantastic and look a million times better than when I’m left to my own devices!
I’ll be back later with an update :)
