Serious Willpower!

What is it with me and hungry days at the moment? I seem to spend all day hungry. I guess it's still my body getting itself back to normal, but it means I spend most of the day eating! I really couldn't be bothered with making anything breakfasty today, so went with a lazy girl choice.



I stuffed the spud with four Laughing Cow extra light triangles, cottage cheese and 30g of cheddar and had some tomato, cucumber and gherkins. Lovely, filling and easy. That should be my motto! Lunch was even lazier, if that's possible - my get up and go is leaving me rather rapidly at the moment!


Have you EVER seen such a lazy lunch? I'm a shocking example really aren't I? Still, it was on plan. It was after lunch however that I had a wibble. A BIG wibble. Hague mentioned that he really fancied getting indescribably drunk, which planted that seed in my head....an evening of much boozyness, sillyness and general drunkeness. Oh, we've not had one of those for a while, such a long while. I wrestled with my willpower for ages, put desperate pleas out on Twitter and Facebook and luckily I decided to stay on plan. Mostly as we are heading down to London next weekend to see friends and will most definitely be indulging then. It'd be silly to jeopardise two weigh ins for the sake of a drink. It was tough going though, it really was.

After such a strenuous few hours of trying to find my willpower, I wanted something delicious for dinner - cooked by myself - seriously, I think Hague must be on strike or something ;) Or maybe he's too busy eating things like this.....?


I think I deserve a bloody medal for not just hoovering up that whole plate of noms. That little tub? Seriously Strong cheese spread, and look, a lump of cheddar, and a box of those delicious little b*stards, Ritz crackers. What's a girl to do? Well this one was good and after looking up the syn value of the crackers (just one each) I had just two.


My two, delicious, yummy Ritz crackers. Now happily in my tummy :) Restraint, they name is Karen!

Anyway, back to my dinner. I wanted warm and comforting and really fancied some roasted potatoes, so I came up with this plate of Slimming World deliciousness.


Three Linda McCartney rosemary and onion sausages with a huge pile of rosemary roasties and some cauliflower and broccoli cheese (thank you LowLow). Sometimes it amazes even me just what you can eat on Slimming World - guess you can see why it's the only plan for me?

Another day awaits tomorrow, where I'm sure my willpower will be tested again as it's shopping day, which means we have to wander down aisles filled with Jack Daniels, Vodka and other deliciously dirty beverages. But that is tomorrow, and today, willpower held strong :)

Reason #2
The stairs at work. I work in a factory where the production floor is on the fourth floor. There is a lift, and there are stairs. Right now, I have to take the lift. When I attempt the stairs my legs go wobbly, I have to stop halfway and I'm seriously out of breath when I reach the top. I want to be able to climb those stairs without giving them a second thought.
