I NEED A KICK START...
I'm thinking I will hate the coffee one! But, I need a bit of a boost with the weight loss... I've gained SO MUCH in the past month!
Emotional eating to the max... my biggest downfall.
I'm going to replace lunch AND dinner with a shake for a week... then reassess how I feel about it. I will have a little fruit for snacks and when I'm feeling starving.
But. I'm going to turn it around again... I have a goal in mind for Christmas... which is approx 12 weeks away.... so I should be able to do it!
ABOVE: Archer got a temperature yesterday afternoon, Bex thinks he's teething. As soon as it's a decent time (like 9 am), I shall be ringing her to see how he is. One can't help worrying when a wee baby isn't well. At least it's not Friday afternoon, when most kids decide to get sick!
Last night I got the binding on the baby quilt, took me until 11.45 pm. So today I can sit in front of the telly and watch some mindless programmes while hand stitching it on the back.
That will take me a good hour or more. After that, who knows? I might do the housework, such as it is.
ANON from yesterday: I will always remove a crude and vulgar comment.
9.08 am: Just text Bex, Archer is OK by the sound of it. Probably just teething temp, he was dribbling something rotten yesterday when I was there.
Well... I've done all the housework, so now it's time to get hand stitching...
12.05 pm: Well, it took a bit longer than I thought to do the hand stitching, but 2.5 hours later... it's done:
Lunchtime... trying not to get too 'excited'... I know I will hate the shake. lol
12.28 pm: And I tried the Caramel shake. YUM!
I also read up on the 'diet' and have decided not to do the first Intensive stage, but go to the 2nd 'Transitional' Stage, which is 2 shakes and one small low calorie meal a day, 2 pieces of fruit, a small serve of dairy and 2 serves of non starchy vegetables... giving a calorific amount of about 800-1000 per day.
I'm hoping this will be the kick start I need.
5.52 pm: My mouth is watering... cooking the family's dinner (sweet n sour chicken on rice). But, I am determined not to succumb.
I shall be trying the COFFEE shake for my dinner. Hmmmm....
And the verdict on the coffee shake? Not bad. Certainly not as bad as I envisioned. It actually tasted more like chocolate than coffee!
So, this shake diet really isn't going too bad... for DAY ONE! lol
End of Day: unexpectedly, a good day.
