Lucky's 2013 Diary
So. It is 2013. This year I will be a bridesmaid in the Easter Holidays, so I have this term to get slim, confident and happy with my body so I look okay in my lovely red dress (that has already been bought!). I would like to lose about a stone.
Throughout January I am doing the Cancer Research Dryathlon, so no alcohol til February. Hopefully this will give me a good start.
No alcohol in January, then only once a week
Stick to SW properly (no cheating)
Save up some money
Stop spending money on junk on E-Bay and clothes I don't really need
Try new exercise activities (EG. Park Run and Spinning)
Do a Charity 5k and 10k
Be more organised with work (planning and recording evidence)

D: NO IDEA YET AS GOING OUT (Ended up having Gnocchi- WAY off track)
Was intending to stay in but out friend from China has turned up unexpectedly and haven't seen him for about 7 -8 years so should do really.
Plus (SHHHHHHH) am supposed to be going to works Xmas meal and do tonight but really couldn't be ar**d with it before knew about friend turning up so have 'forgotten' about it. I know that prob sounds really bad, but my food has already been chosen /ordered and was REALLY naughty, plus everyone will be drinking / drunk and I'm on the wagon for January.
Today is not good so far. Hoping I'll feel better after toning class and quick change and meal out.
I have decided that I will just 'do my best' tonight. Usually I'd have linguine with tomato and prawn sauce in there. They also lots of meat 'on the rock' with charred veggies / salad / wedges / etc. Aghhhh.
Okay - well that went pear-shaped. Trying to explain english pub menu to out chinese friends was very stressful. I couldn't have the meat on the rock as had hoped as their baby was all over the place, climbing on the table and doing what he liked and a red hot rock on the table would have been VERY dangerous. Forgot that had had chicken at lunch and ordered gnocchi in tomato sauce (and when this came out it was creamy and cheesey as well). I ended up using my Dryathlon Golden Ticket and had a wine and some cider. Overall the day was a bit of a disaster and I'm drawing a line under it. Rubbish.

I know it'll be hard to stick to this at work today because..
...I'll feel tempted to comfort eat
...people will have brought left-over treats in after xmas (out of order I say - bloody sabotaging other peoples attempts to eat healthily to make it easier for themselves. BIN EM OR EAT EM YOURSELVES.
... the head always supplies a buffet lunch on training days. This includes 'some' healthy eating bits, but mainly high syn stuff. I am not even going in that room. I shall organise an alternative lunch destination for dieters who want to eat their own stuff.
I am SOOO pleased that I sneakily chucked away all the chocolaty treats left behind in my classroom and the 6th form common room before I left on the last day of term. Good thinking Batgirl!!
Wish me luck...
.....well, that wasn't too bad.
Needless to say as soon as I got there I say piles of mince pies, plates of cookies, bowls of chocolates, and packets and packets of flippin' biscuits. Not to mention a buffet at lunchtime with lots off pizza slices, sausage rolls, etc., etc. BUT I was mentally prepared and resisted all but one little Aero Bubbles Mint Sweetie, which I just looked up at it's 0.5 syns. Was working so hard at the end of the day that I didn't realise what the time was and almost missed my Body Combat class, but with extra fast cycling, Wonderwoman style change of clothing into gym kit and jog TO the gym I made it. PHEW!!!

1 x bag of SMASH (apparently the cheaper the make the better)
any cheese(s) from health extras
oregano and basil
any toppings such as onion, mushroom, sweetcorn, even quorn fajita strips!
- pre-heat the oven and put a pizza tray in to warm up.
- put SMASH into a bowl and slowly add water - make it as thick as possible...could always add some herbs to the base or some garlic.
- take pizza tray out of oven and spray with fry-light.
- using your hands spread SMASH out onto the pizza tray, but don't press down too hard....try and get it around 4mm.
- put in the oven for 7-10 minutes
- take out of oven, turn SMASH base over and put back in over for a further 7-10 minutes to crisp the other side.
- remove from oven and leave to cool.
- bung all other ingrediants on and finish off under the grill until the cheese melts.
- eat the whole bloody thing to yourself! :eatdrink012:
Friday 11th January (7 Syns)
Exercise: None. (Toooooo tired and have a heavy exercise weekend ahead!)
Feeling quite positive about my Dryathlon / no alcohol this weekend as I've realised it's still nearly 3 weeks til payday so I need to eek my money out. Luckily I love being on Green and there are lots of cheap and cheerful recipes and ideas. It's also great being a paid up gym member because there's always somewhere to go that costs nothing (as long as I have my £1 coin for a locker - refundable of course). Looking forward to the launch of the new Body Combat and Body Pump on Sunday. I shall def be earning my Sunday Roast with a double gym session and between 1000 and 1400 kcals being burnt.
I've got lots and lots of school work to do this weekend so good that I'll be at home more and drunk / hungover less.
I'm not sure if to recolour my hair this weekend or wait and do it before I go to get it cut and styled at the beginning of Feb. Have got an appointment booked at a vintage hairdressers!! First time. Hope they're good as going all the way to London for it!

Your diary looks brilliant and well done on the double session at the gym. I used to do that and I know how much it hurts and you want to cry. It's all worth it though. I only do green days as I am a veggie, since the introduction on EE most classes are pushing that so it is nice to see some green day entries :) I have only been back on the plan a week but all going well. Congrats on the loss by the way. We all put lbs on over Christmas, don't worry it's already dropping off you.
