Lovely, lovely, happy beautiful day today. Started with a nice walk in the park with the dog and had a nice conversation about everything and nothing with a man walking his Irish setter. Honestly, I’ve never seen a dog with a shinier coat — the thing should be doing Pantene commercials!
Then off to the cinema with the husband. Bel Ami. It was alright from a “oooh, look at that dress!” standpoint, but it felt a bit rushed at the end. Robert Pattinson also looked like he was recovering from tuberculosis throughout the movie — he looked like he hadn’t slept in months and like he needed a bath. Ick.
We went out for lunch. I suggested a carvery because I knew I’d be able to get some vegetables and wouldn’t go overboard with fried food. A roast dinner somehow feels as better than fast food, right? Right? 🙂
It was a lovely sunny day, so we took a little drive and ended up taking a nice walk by the sea and even dropped in to an amusements. We collected a grand total of 266 tickets and “won” a stuffed Bagpuss, a Bart Simpson keychain, and a Slinky. Please, try to control your jealousy.
Another binge-free day! I’m finding the accountability of knowing I have to publish everything I eat sort of helpful. My inclination is to always lie about what I’m eating (and I very nearly lied and said I’d had one scoop of frozen yogurt last night instead of two!), so being honest is really rather freeing.
Breakfast: a banana
Lunch: roast beef, stuffing, garden peas, carrots, roasted potatoes, mashed potatoes (I KNOW. TWO KINDS OF POTATOES, SO SHOOT ME.), a Yorkshire pudding
Dinner: Took leftover Mexican rice from yesterday and mixed in some black beans and topped it with low fat cheese, low fat sour cream, and green onions.
Dessert: soft-serve vanilla ice cream, lemon sauce, half a Flake (after the carvery meal at lunchtime), apple and pear cake from the other night with low fat Greek yogurt, strawberries, and honey
I realise two desserts in one day is kinda, um, a lot, but this was my indulgence day and I didn’t binge or eat in secret, so I consider that a win!
Plus, I’m down two pounds since I started writing this blog! 🙂
