I didnt think I would ever say that but there it is.
The scrapbook club I belong to go away four times a year to an old country house where we do nothing but craft and eat and chat and laugh.
We go on Friday afternoon and stay until Sunday afternoon. You get three 2 course meals a day with coffee and cake inbetween each meal! Honestly in the past I would gain at least 7lb on these weekends.
The last time I went was right after surgery so I wasnt eating solids at all. This was my first weekend eating normally. I just took it easy and ate what I could. I did feel like people were watching me but they are all my friends so it wasnt uncomfortable. The only problem I had was with Sunday lunch. Roast beef, yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings. I dont eat yorkshire puddings anyway so I gave that away. I actually only ate 1 slice of beef, 2 small roast potatos and a spoonfull of carrots but I got stuck and PB'ed. That left room for dessert! Which was a lovely buttery peach thing with cream. Dont worry I only had a spoonfull.
But I heart the band because I still lost 1/4 of a pound. Not much I know but NO GAIN!!!!!!! I could not imagine going on one of these weekends and not gaining weight. It's a whole new experience for me and I love it.
Now I have to get back into the exercise as I have seriously let this slip for the past two weeks. The weather has been really hot and its very tiring but thats no excuse because you all deal with much hotter weather than me and still exercise. Back to the gym tonight!
Tomorrow is my BYOC challenge day so lots of drinking and gym and I am quite looking forward to it.
Have a good week everyone x
Much love xxx
