day…what day??!?!?! 14 me thinks

wellllll………….. 😦

wasn’t that great over the xmas week, did attack the spicey xmas bickies I made one day…a huge “whoops” there!!! was quite emotional over xmas and as usual my defence mechanism is to eat comfort food….hence the bickies, did feel like crap afterwards, so in effect the comfort eating didn’t really comfort did it!!!??

…… had a couple of alcoholic beverages….gulp

small serve of dessert I made for everyone xmas day, so I didn’t beat myself up over that it could have been worse and it could have been better!!!

it always amazes me how much food influences our moods, how we can taste something and instantly remember an event or see something that triggers a flavour or delicious memory of luscious food ha!!

sitting here typing away listening to a mix of eighties music courtesy of “GrooveShark”.com….some of, which as I just mentioned to my mum [who lives with us] sounds like a noisy @#$*!%$ din now lol…so click… onto the next one…… 😉

and as I sit here pondering my naval, of which seems to be bumping into the desk front, I am in a good head space to keep forging ahead with this “food journey”

GM and I are flying out in march for a holiday and I really need to feel I have made some sort of conscious effort to fit in the plane seat lol…..being 5 foot 10 or 178cm, it is hard enough to fit the legs in between the modest sized seats  …never mind squeezing in the derriere too, and then feeling like you can actually breathe for the rest of the flight, while fighting the seat buckle…why do they make it so difficult….trying to not give the passenger beside you a black eye as you carefully attempt to cut up the steak you ordered, or fling your drink over them as you gently navigate the plastic glass up over the belly and twist slightly to reach your lips lol…………………. fun I say!!!


breakfast….coffee/2 toast

lunch….subway salad roll

snack…fresh pineapple sliced up/carrot juice

huge salad for dinner….tomatoe/peppers/cheese/gerkins/olives/fresh herbs/balsamic dressing

    Oh girl again you had me laughing..wondering where you got too though 🙂 Wipe that sad face off – yes it’s Christmas – yes we let ourselves go – yes we have pangs of guilt – BUT and huge but – we forge on – we make up the time we have lost – we move more – we eat less – we concentrate on getting right back on that horse (or plane)!
    Re the alcoholic beverages – I try to stay away from wines – so much sugar bad bad
    I have spirits and mix with low jule (calorie) mixers – not nearly as bad as wine but still supplies the ahh relaxing I was seeking 🙂 Your esteem/comfort eating issues will disappear once you start seeing results and YOU WILL GET THEM!.. Oops caps = yelling (wasn’t yelling) ok perhaps a little 🙂 Keep going sunshine and sshh to ya’ mum lol x

        Water?? Wash your mouth out with soap woman! Thank you – I enjoy that you enjoy 🙂
        Expect more yelling if you’re bad but not if you’re goos – ok if you’re good then it’s excited yelling 😉
