Wow ! What a day!
Thank goodness today is over. The first paper was great. Multiple choice and thought I did OK. The paper this afternoon was terrible. All photos and graphs and multiple choice with what you thought it was ! When I started I was enjoying it but some of it got tricky.
oh well it's finished with and get results in October. It does not impact on my job other than I would no longer be on roster to do the breastfeeding clinic.
I did well with the food. Had a nutrition bar and then ordered scrambled egg with spinach for lunch. Knowing I had the exam I wanted to make sure I had enough nutrition to keep my brain happy.........
So tomorrow I am back to work after a week off as I had an Accrued day off last Friday and with the weekend and study leave I am looking forward to going back.
So we are in the middle of winter here and it is cold and wet. Feeling proud as we have not put on the heater and just rug up with throw rugs if we get cold. Trying to see if we can afford to still live here when we retire.........
We are lucky as the house has been orientated correctly and we get sun pouring into the house in the family, kitchen and lounge rooms during the day. So as long as we close off the house by 4pm it stays warm. And as it is just hubby and I now, we just use the front part of the house.
Anyway hubby is home so going to make him a salad to go with his lamb chops that he is barbecuing for himself. I will have a shake and that is me for the day.
a little tired as have an exam tomorrow so have been on study leave for last few days and have been doing practice exams.
Did a dummy run to the venue in real time this am. Got there at 7:20! Don't need to be there till 0830 for registration. Problem is that I have to drive through peak hour traffic and leave it much later and an accident and I am in big trouble. So would rather be early, than in a tizzy and running late. It was good to get a feel for the venue and parking.
Am so proud of myself!
Have got rid of a total of 5 kg /11 lbs in the last 4 weeks on this Cambridge diet. I love the fact that I am drinking 2.5 litres of water a day, so am well hydrated. Starting to notice a difference with some of my clothes already. At this rate I will be at goal BMI of 22 in the next 10 weeks!
Well I had better get to bed and get some sleep so I can think straight for this exam tomorrow.
Miss you all. Hope you are all well and living a healthy happy life.
Today less than 2 weeks later 71.8kgs! I have not seen those numbers for a long time.
Drinking 4 glasses of water before I eat anything.
Cambridge eating plan. Step 2 Have a Cambridge porridge for breakfast with 180mls 1% milk.
Lunch: Cambridge soup with 180mls %1 milk.
Snack: Cambridge shake.
Dinner is a choice of a variety of protein foods with 3 tablespoons of green vegetables.
The changes I have noticed is that I no longer crave sweet food. The shake is quite sweet so I think that helps.
I went to visit a friend for morning tea this am and she had cooked scones and had the cream and jam and butter...................
Some quick thinking about how nice they would taste and then my sensible strong will power voice said NO! thankyou. I stated I was on a special eating plan and had to pass. My friend was VERY supportive and just asked if I minded her eating in front of me and I stated that it did not bother me at all.
If that had of been me 2 weeks ago I would have got stuck in, and probably eaten at least 2!
Jam cream and all!
It was a wonderful 2 hours of catching up and I headed home before the storms arrived.
Even managed to take Sooty for a quick walk after I got back. Very windy but the rain stayed away long enough for a quick walk.
