One Down...

Well, I survived. My first 12 hour shift in many months has been completed. I didn't die half way through the shift, and I actually don't feel too bad, which is a pleasant surprise, don't get me wrong, I'm shattered, but I'm better than expected.

Food was obviously going to be quite important, today. When you're out of the house for 13 1/2 hours and you're trying to lose weight, taking enough food is vital. Especially when the only other food available is from a vending machine. A vending machine that only has crisps and sweets in it!

So I took quite a variety! At my first break I had a banana, and a bottle of water. Breakfast was a bowl of 40g of muesli mixed with yogurt and an apple. The muesli had been soaking in the yogurt all night, so was delicious. That tided me over until my second lunch break, where I had the chilli I'd batch baked over the weekend and a yogurt.

My final break involved another bottle of water and a Harvest Morn bar. To be honest, I think I might have needed a couple of more snacky things as I felt hungry whilst I was at work, although this may be a leftover from my weekend where I felt hungry all the time and overly tempted.

Dinner was waiting for me when I got in (as my boyfriend is amazing). I didn't want anything too heavy as an early night awaits, and so he'd prepared the tomato soup for me. Perfect after a long day :)

I'll round off my evening with a lovely milky hot chocolate before bed, as I'll only be up for a little bit longer - that 4.30am alarm just gets harder as the week goes on :(

The worst thing about today was having to miss group. I got home too late for my group, and the 7.30 group doesn't end until 9, and I want to be in bed way before that :( I think missing group is part of the reason I've been feeling lacking in willpower this weekend (even though I haven't succumbed). I really enjoy group and it's quickly become something I look forward to, and to be honest, I feel a little bit lost not going! Roll on 2 weeks time when I can go back!
