I used to be a thin person in a fat person's body... Now I'm a not so fat person fighting the fatty inside!

My blog posts are my thoughts and feelings in the ongoing struggle to maintain an arse that fits in a size 12 pair of jeans.

Self indulgence of the blogging kind...

It occurred to me today that blogging is really an excuse for everyone to indulge themselves and whinge about their life to the blank space that is the internet.

And yet here I am.

I will make a conscious effort to provide some sort of helpful tip for each post I make to give all my (imaginary) readers some added value! We all know it's about adding the value these days.

So. Off I go.

Today I've been mentally beating myself up about my (very) naughty weekend. So lets review the bad things I consumed in order to either reinforce my worries or quash them! On Friday night we went to La Carbonara (Swindon, Italian restaurant, oh so yummy and fantastic service, go there!) where I had garlic mushrooms, seafood linguine and berry tart with cream. Ouch. Points crisis right there. Oh, and I had a muffin at work Friday afternoon. Then Saturday. Had a fairly healthy lunch so we won't dwell on that, but then another muffin (they are the medium size ones, blueberry, about 4.5 points a pop), and nachos in Wetherspoons, along with approximately 5 cocktails in the evening (although next time I will definitely be sticking to the vodka and diet coke because I felt stupidly sober). Sunday began with a bagel with peanut butter and then yet another muffin and coffee. Then I had a salad for lunch which had tons of feta cheese in and sour cream on top. And a handful of chips. We had a BBQ at dinner time but that was just one bread roll and then chicken and salad so not too bad.

Now. I suppose it could have been worse. But it also could have been better. And with the holiday less than 3 weeks away and 2 weeks in a hotel for training courses for work before then I should really be behaving myself! I've been to the gym this evening though...

Ok, reprimanding over with. 

In light of that rant my tip for today is don't go overboard because it's the weekend. And if you do, get your bum in the gym and work it off!

(I'll let you know whether this works at the end of the week ;-) )

  2. Hello Sim :)

    Honestly, if I can do it anyone can! That's another cliche, I know, but I was the most unhealthy, lazy person ever, and with a bit of effort and a lot of willpower (sometimes) I got here. In fact, you've inspired my "tip" for todays blog!

    Read on... ;)
