Oh I am struggling today, with a super big S! I'm clinging onto plan with my fingertips right now! After a wonderful evening with friends last night, and plenty of booze and nibbles I was determined to get straight back on plan, and declined breakfast of lovely buttery toast, choosing to wait until we got home, so I could have something on plan.

I won't lie, I really wanted to be bad, I wanted a big, thick slice of the granary bread that's in the freezer, I wanted the bread topped with butter. But I was good. I had wholemeal toast, 2 slices from a 400g toast, topped with scrambled eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms. The house is still full of Christmassy noms. Hague has eaten his way through sweets, nuts and crisps today - I've been close to cracking so many times, but when I was hungry again, I stayed strong....

Lots of pickles, plus some LC extra light triangles, and these Snack-a-Jacks crunchy curls were part of my Christmas hamper, and at only 3.5 syns I was rather impressed, I might be getting those again, as they tasted really nice with the cheeseyness :) I was rather proud of myself for resisting, but I could still have eaten crap :(

Resistance was not futile though, although I did start to wonder why I was so hungry only to look at the clock and realise it was nearly 10pm. I think the phrase is oops ;) 

For a quick dinner, it was actually rather nice, red cabbage, carrots and spinach, mixed in with sweet chilli supernoodles and topped with a whole packet of Quorn sticky fillets - I was hungry :) It was rather good, even if I say so myself.

After a little while, I decided I needed something sweet, and treated myself to my Quoptions mix, still no naughty food here! As we're now heading towards 1am, and into the last hour of the first Twilight film, I'm guessing there will be no more food for me today, so I've done it, stayed on plan :)

I'm actually feeling immensely proud of myself right now - for getting through a day when it would have been SO easy to just fall off plan, the food is all here, ready and waiting for me to crumble, but I didn't succumb, not today.

After such a hard day, here's something wonderful to make you smile - made by my friend Nick, who we saw last night :)

Isn't he awesome, and I reckon he might just stay up beyond Twelfth Night :)
