I was doing some decluttering in my craft room/ guest room when Bear found some chocolate D1 had left behind. I messaged her saying I'll put it in the freezer for next time she comes to visit. Lets just say this is where things went wrong. She told me I could eat it if it was gluten free, very dangerous words for a chocoholic. I checked the ingredients, to my surprise it was gf. Woohoo!
I continued to declutter thinking one little bit won't hurt, its been ages since I've had decent chocolate. One little bit lead to two little bits, then before I knew it someone had snuck in and gobbled the whole lot down. Oops! It was so worth it though and I thought this would start my cravings all over again, thankfully it hasn't.
Then Saturday night Bear cooked a delicious lamb roast which we enjoyed with a glass of red wine. He is not a big drinker BUT suggested we have a second glass.
We had a packet of chips stored away which we had forgotten to bring out for little J. So guess what, we gobbled those down enjoying every mouthful.
I thought what have I done after all that hard work for the past 11 weeks, blown it in one day eating all this stuff. On Sunday I was back on the straight and narrow sticking to my healthy eating plan. Phew!
For the rest of the week I've done so well. More than doubled my steps Monday as we went shopping with heaps of walking. Did two water aerobics classes plus a tai chi class as well as all my steps each day.
Wednesday I had a session with my osteopath who is really pleased with the way my back has progressed. He said it must be all the water exercises and encouraged me to keep it up. I have to drop my class using weights though, as I've now damage my other rotator cuff and bicep. I think three sessions at the gym is enough at the moment anyway.
Managed to avoid any sitting binges as we have been busy, busy, busy all week. So overall with the bit of a hiccup to start the week off it's been very successful. Also the scales have gone down half a kilo. Yay!
Sorry I didn't visit everyone's FFF for last week, will endeavour to this week hopefully.
Now that its heading for summer in the northern hemisphere where most of you are living. Please remember to slip, slop, slap, seek and slide. Having a melanoma is not a fun thing to go through. It only takes a few minutes to apply sun cream, so do yourself a favour and avoid skin cancer.
Have a good weekend everyone.
