I woke at 5am with hunger pains, but I did the right thing and went downstairs and had a healthy snack and a cup of tea, so I could go back to sleep , eventually! I was very tired the next day which is guaranteed to weaken everyone's willpower! Getting ready for my meet up in Berkhamsted with my friend, Liz was a rush and I arrived on time but my hair wasn't behaving as it should. A bad hair day and my dental brace in made me feel very uncomfortable and a little negative!!
We found the hat shop easily and I felt more negative as I glanced around and could only spot one hat that was the right colour, the right shape! The problem was it was decorated with a big black rose and had a black trim and could not be changed - not appropriate for a wedding ( negativity again).
The ladies persuade me to make an appointment next Friday and to bring my outfit! They are going to get more hats in 'Cadbury purple' for me try. This immediately piled on the pressure. It is too early to buy the dress, let alone wear it comfortably! I agreed and put the situation to the back of my mind!
Liz and I had a fun trip around the shops and I spotted my good lace for my Ring Pillow project!!
I drove home and arrive tired and fed up, the worries had resurfaced! I have a power nap to restore my mood and then make the tea - healthy fish and chips, except there were not enough chips for me (disappointing) so I made fish-cakes for me, which are very tasty!
Being vulnerable , my mood was lowered even further by a call from my sister who was in a really negative mood! I managed to distance myself from her mood but my fate was sealed. I got sucked into watching catchup on the TV, then channel hopping and turned into a couch potato and the grazing began!
I was able to account for the damage - nearly a day's dieting allowance! I woke up this morning in a worse spot than yesterday, but I got things in proportion and have cut back today making sensible filling choices including a healthy very delicious bolognese, so i don't feel deprived at all! I will be very very careful the rest of the week so I will limit the damage!!
I will buy the smaller dress on Monday and squeeze into it on Friday!! Anyway no tv tonight. It is family night so lots of fun to be had in good company and no nibbling!
Learn from your mistakes and move forward is my motto!!!!
