I have still not found the weight loss wagon; I’ve been indulging in Nutella filled doughnuts, too much alcohol & lots of cheese. Fortunately when I weighed in this morning I still saw a 1lb loss, so hooray for that! I’ve got another pound to go before I’m back to my weight before last week’s gain, but a loss is a loss and, given I’m not really trying still, I think it’s good going.
I’m not sure what’s going on with my drinking; I’ve drunk every evening except one this past week. Either a Bailey’s or a Malibu & Fanta or both…
I went through this a while ago, drinking too often, although I feel like it was for different reasons. Before it was because it made me feel confident and no longer full of anxiety, now I feel I’m drinking because I fancy sitting on the terrace in the sun with a glass of something alcoholic. I’m not worried about it for the moment, but it is something I need to keep an eye on.
On the flip side, I’ve eaten less chocolate bars of an evening this past week, so that’s a positive.
At the end of the day though, I’m enjoying life at the moment, and that means enjoying my food too. I’m very much in the holiday spirit, the sunny weather is helping with that, so I’m not going to beat myself up too much. I don’t want to be on a permanent ‘diet,’ as I’ve said before it’s about a lifestyle change for me, and there will be periods in my life where healthy eating goes out of the window for a little while, and that’s OK. What is important is getting back on track when I can and loving myself as I am.
