... oh god, someone give me some chocolate!
I'm not joking. Cast me in Oliver Twist, "food, glorious food!", what wouldn't I give for? There are some days when the healthy meals and low fat 'fake plastic cheese' slices don't cut it. I've had breakfast; it's a long way until snack time and yet I am starving. Starving! Wasting away!
... Or perhaps not.
Let's go through the motions. First up, drink a glass of water. Glug/check. Second make sure it's been at least twenty minutes since breakfast - has the food registered? Yup. Third, have some Greek yoghurt and another cheese slice. Together they're less than a 100 calories, but the protein might help. Fourth, blog. Blog as if your life/waistline depended on it.
Let's talk about something else for a moment. Yesterday I took myself out to Bath for a treat.
Those would be the baths.
I also popped into the world's best bookshop, meaning I bought enough books to make a decent sized throne. They were a reward for sticking with things, so I don't feel too bad about that indulgence. Especially as it's not the kind you can't eat. Not without a lot of sauce anyway.
Plans for today: okay, it's the fifteenth which means fifteen push-ups. Would you believe I couldn't do one back in December - at least not without dropping to my knees! Wow. I also need to get some miles in, good solid miles of walking preferably numbering around five in total. Then there's kettlebells in the evening.
In between is work and doing a bit more organising for my pal's hen (batchelorette) night. I love trying to come up with creative ideas and L's Wizard of Oz themed extravaganza is ripe with potential (and displacement). I'm making up goodie bags at the moment: the design has been printed up, now to to find the actual goodies!
So, big question: am I still hungry? Nope. Phew. Think it was probably the idea of eating a three inch thick book on Georgian history that sealed the deal. I'm not that desperate.
