Ive just made up jelly too, cheap and soooooo tasty. Hope your hubby news comes quickly as its a nightmare 'just' waiting, night night xxx
Bleugh! Didn't want to get up this morning, the bed was far too warm and cosy! Snow all clearing which was met with "ooowwwwwwwhhh!!" By my 2 older children as they left this morning
Have my food delivery coming this morning so will be all stocked freezer wise
Food - muffins
Lunch - chicken soup and cold beef
Dinner - roast chicken thighs with cottage cheese
Snacks - beef/ crab sticks / jelly!!
Feeling fine on the extended pp days, hopefully that feeling will last!!
Now - question!! I am meeting a load of old work colleagues tomorrow night and normally that would involve lots of wine, but I'm obv off that at the mo. if I am honest, they will try and badger me to have just one "it wont hurt!" but i know i will feel like i have ruined things... so need an excuse as I am not up for having my willpower tested all night! Anyone got any ideas? was thinking of being on antibiotics...
Love that quote!!

Happy Thursday! I can say that as I am off tomorrow with my babies! hoorah!!
Out for drinks tonight and looking forward to them, but also bit apprehensive. They will all
Be getting sozzled, i will be sober and getting tired lol. Will be good to catch up and nice waking up with a clear head!!
Food - I didn't eat until 12, busy with work and I had thought I had muffins ready, but they were waiting for me in the freezer - whoops!!
Lunch - 2 slices ham, 2 eggs, 2 chicken thighs. I see a pattern again...
Dinner - need something substantial so I am not overcome with the munchies later... More chicken thighs I expect!
Official weigh in tomoz - had a sneaky peak this am and looks like I am down 2, will report back tomorrow
Have a lovely day all.
Argh... I'm having a boozy wobble! Do I have a drink or not? Hope I can keep my resolve but feeling more in the mood for a little tipple with friends... Eeeeeeeek!!
Im not givivng any advice.......................................but
I didn't drink!!! I am very pleased with myself the night was lovely, great to catch up and I didn't need to have a drink, so I stuck to diet coke all night and feel really glad I did!
I read a few things I had written before starting back on Dukan, how I was feeling, what I want to achieve etc and it kept me on the straight and narrow
3 people did ask if I was pregnant hah!! I decided to come clean and just tell them, all were fine and didn't badger me! Very very pleased. It wouldn't have made my night any better, and I would have felt pretty rotten tomorrow, iso YAY!!
Oh I am glad Couteaux. It's true that the feeling we get having come through a challenge far outweighs the seconds of wobbling with the "shall I...?" questions.
I remember in my cognitive therapy book (I only got through two chapters) saying that every time you eat something you weren’t supposed to, you strengthen your giving in muscle, which makes it more likely that the next time you’ll give in and the time after that and the time after that. Every time you stick to your plan when you’re tempted to eat something else, you strengthen your resistance muscle, which makes it more likely that the next time you’ll resist, and the time after that and the time after that. GO GIRL, your resistance muscle is strengthening!!
Like you said way back, once you start saying yes, it's much harder to then start saying no again! My muscle is feeling the burn, baby!
I was very excited about my official WI after my angelic evening. I'm sure you can imagine how miffed/shocked I was when I weighed in 3lbs heavier than yesterday!!! Booooo.
I know it can't be actual gain, 3lbs in a day is ridiculous, but really??? I'd have understood if it was drink related, but not sure what that is all about. Might try again tomorrow but its pv today so that could have an impact too.! boo and double boo!
Grrr to the scales but yippee to the resolve! And I shan't forget that line about resistance muscle from Maintainer - it's so true. Did Diet Coke not keep you awake half the night, though? I struggle with that because sparkling water is such a grim alternative. And yes, my experience is that people just leave you to it if you tell them why you're not drinking, either that or they actually want to know more. Good luck for tomorrow's wi, Couteaux x
resistance muscle.............remembered. You know its water retention, tomorrow it will be gone. Our bodies are strange machines xxx
Oh pants WI today thinking it'll all be gone and I am up another lb!! 13.5.
Went out for lunch with friends, nothing suitable on the menu, so I even asked them to make me a grilled chicken salad - I really feel like I should be down , so gaining 4 lbs now just seems crazy. Didn't have huge amounts of veg yesterday, just 2 salads.
