Energy boost please!

+0,4 is what me drinking too much alcohol and not training enough in Malta gave. I also got the period on Saturday so I am carrying a bit of extra fluid that certainly affects the result. I am feeling positive and for the first time in a long time when being away like that for work and out of routine I stuck with the food I should eat and didn’t really crave anything else. No chocolate or bread attacks during this stay. Ok – maybe about 125 too many peanuts, but still…

I am low in energy today and will keep this short. Feeling a fever and cold coming on and getting up this morning was painful. This very rarely happens me! Lots of things to handle in the office that worry me a little bit at the moment but nothing that will get me totally out of wack.

I have planned my menu and done the food shopping for this week and for dinner today I had fish and spinach. It was not one of my favourites, actually it was pretty discusting – but i closed my eyes while swallowing thinking about something else.

I am proud to say that I have now had 100 g of dark chocolate laying in the cupboard for three weeks without going at it like the sugar rat I am. That in itself is a success for me.


Filling myself with vitamins, antioxidants and good fats. Tasted as bad is it looks unfortunately.

Now I am going to feel sorry for myself a little bit and watch Biggest Loser and cry my eyes out. I am watching the Swedish version and today is the episode when the 4 last standing come back home to their families after quite a while away. Love seeing the reactions on their achievments. Warriors fighting for change. Wohooo!

After that – I say good night! Soon fun times and next week I am off on holiday!
