I messed up this week. Well, not entirely, but owing to “circumstances” (AKA deliberately getting myself into these situations) where I had to compromise my programme. Ah well, what is done is done, no use crying over split milk.
SATURDAY 5th and SUNDAY 6th December, 2015
I made a mistake of not meal prepping, hoping to go to a local restaurant and make a “healthy” choice. We ended up going to OSTERIA, Where I indulged in 3 slices of freshly baked Italian Bread. I followed this up with a seafood salad. Which was a few pieces of prawns and calamari and lettuce. By the time the main meal came (yes, what was I thinking), Grilled Snapper and Spinach, I was stuffing it down. I shared the fish with mum (so I must have eaten my portion’s size) and a few fork-fulls of the spinach. But i was stuffed. I feel my stomach bag was stretched to tearing point. Lesson learnt. Better to eat at home, and then go out.
On Sunday, I was at the gym. I was pleased to note, as was my trainer, that i “Looked Smaller”. Ha! Ha! Seems like it is working! We did legs for 1.5 hours and cardio and then I enjoyed a nice steam for 30 mins. In the evening went out with my beau for a grilled fish salad. (and a double chocolate chip cookie. I am not going to lie. I ate it. I should not have. But I did)

I was almost expecting the scale to shoot up. But this is expected on pre-cycle days. My neighbor was considerate enough to bring a delicious fruit cake over, which, I could help from devouring. Until my mum had to give it away 😥

TUESDAY 8th December, 2015
The Cheating continues! I had a Double Choc Chip Cookie today. And I can see the weight climbing back. I feel like I will soon burst out of my skin, if I continue to cheat. All was not lost however, when my Tennis Coach paid me a compliment, “You’ve lost weight!” 🙂

WEDNESDAY 9th December, 2015
Skipped gym today because of tennis last night. I realized that I had not been taking my Calcium and Magnesium tablets, and hence recovery for me was slower. Had a dinner date today. Was strict with my food intake. Just squeezed in 1/2 an Indian bread.

So, it is apparent. What you eat, you will become: HEAVIER!. Checked the scales this morning, and sure enough, they were up. Water Intake has been lousy this week, but by end of the day, I was happy to have NOT CHEATED even once.

FRIDAY 11th December, 2015
Went for Swimming today after eons. Was amazing being back in the water. Managed 15 laps today. Its the weekend, and because I have no company this weekend, I am going to try and “Behave” and stick to this programme as rigidly as possible.

Because I had repeated most of the recipes from week 1, I took very few pictures of my meals. I have put them together in a grid, so that you can see what I ate. I also made a chilies oil to eat with my food for some flavor.
