Current mood: Victorious
So yesterday I said I was contemplating taking my own lunch into work to avoid having to eat the buffet lunch being laid on.
I stuck to my word. While everyone else tucked into big chunks of bread, quiche, pringles, cheesecake etc I sat with my little box of fruit salad (Just green grapes, strawberries and honeydew melon today as there were no raspberries at the supermarket yesterday...sob), a fat free yoghurt, some mini light babybels and a cereal bar.
I also left the staffroom as soon as someone walked in bearing a big bag of biscuits. GO ME!!
I am feeling strong today. I think I may be finally remembering that feeling of power and motivation I had two years ago when I first joined Slimming World. I'm making conscious choices, good choices and hopefully I shall see the rewards when I weigh in next Monday.
For tea I made a huge syn free vegetarian roast dinner. I was famished when I got home. It's all well and good eating fruit for lunch but it does burn off rather quickly. I suppose the good thing that comes out of that is that I eat at tea time when I am hungry not just because it is routine. I appreciate it a heck of a lot more.
With any luck I will soon stop feeling so bloated. I remember a couple of weeks into the plan last time I had a sudden realisation that my stomach didn't feel full of stodge anymore. I felt detoxed in my own way.
There has also been a lot of support from friends and colleagues so I have to keep going now to prove myself to them all over again.
I can do it! Today I finally feel like I believe it too.
Positive mental attitude!!
