So I've had my BBQ yesterday... it was really lovely. About 22 of the expected 45 showed up (a combination of the European Football Quarter Finals and the uncertain weather kept other away). In a way I'm glad my garden was only half full... I really don't think I could have coped with more people!
Interestingly, I didn't eat or drink as much as I thought I would. As hostess I spent most of my time running around making sure everyone was happy, or making sure everyone mingled nicely.
I think everyone had a great time, and I certainly did. So that's the important thing.
Today marks my return to a determined healthy routine. As soon as I opened my eyes this morning the determination was already in mind. My first course of action was to pop into the bathroom to weigh myself. So that I can properly adjust my calorie count and weight loss tracker.
But what I encounted was that my scales were not working! Not sure if they are broken or possibly in need of batteries. But it does mean I have no idea what I weigh. Not to worry, I will pop into the doctor's surgery today and quickly weigh myself on their scales (which are located just near the waiting room). Not going to let a little thing like drained batteries stop me from getting it right this time.
So... now I'm off to plan my food diary for the day. I'm really looking forward to my new healthy eating. Now that I'm 46 (which happened on Friday)... I' determined to make this work for me. Sick and tired of feeling stiff and sore when I wake up in the mornings... because I've been lugging my overweight body around all day. Going to make sure I'm active every day, and that I put my health above everything.
Will keep you posted on what happens next!
