The commute is losing me about 9 hours a week - it's not a complaint, just a fact of life. (On the days when I have the energy and elbow room, I get in some knitting, so that's a win). Plus I've been working hours much longer than those in Queensland, so there is a lot less time for 'me' stuff right now. Which is why the blog has been horribly neglected.
The week that saw me travel to Queensland to my friend's 30th resulted in weight gain of a kilo. I'm not surprised really. All that alcohol and fatty food. But in the following week I corrected with a loss of 1.3 kilos, so overall was ahead. Don't know how I'll go this week, I suspect it will either be stagnant or a slight gain due to TOM and bloating/water retention. Right now I hate you - HATE YOU - if you are one of those women for whom your period is a mere minor inconvenience rather than a severe shitstorm that temporarily unhinges your life.
I'm still plodding along with the 12wbt - following the diet, not religiously, but fairly closely, has given me a modicum of control. We're now at the start of week 5 - one quarter of the way through. I'm happy continue on with my original plan of using this challenge to get routine and eating back on track and then ramp up the intensity with exercise next time around.
Meanwhile, have some frightfully blurry pictures of meals I've been enjoying while on the plan.
Berry and ricotta bruschetta
French toast with maple poached peaches and yoghurt
