Now read on…
You would be so proud of me yesterday. When I got home after work I put out the bins, cut the grass and washed down the patio in the back garden, started and emptied the dishwasher and washed the kitchen floor as I headed down to the creche. As a reward, for dinner yesterday, I gave myself the biggest serving of lasagne. And it wasn’t bad lasagne either, Himself had made it with three types of meat and chilli powder, so it was delicious. I really couldn’t complain at all, so I’m not going to.
Gosh, what a long week. I’ve been at my desk at 7.30 am twice this week, and I’m working late tonight as well. I was so tired yesterday after my long day, my swim, everything, that I gave myself a break this morning and I didn’t go for my swim. I know, I know, the first faltering step is the first failing step, but I didn’t think I could function and still do everything I have to do today. I have seen the end of the first ten days without sugar, and some days were really, really hard. That’s why I have gone out and gotten this.
It is a bar of chocolate, and shortbread biscuits, made with artificial sweeteners. I don’t think they can be regarded as very healthy, but they will do quite well as a fall back plan if I find I am weakening. I want to use the weekend to see if I can make up some substitutes using Splenda, etc. I have no trouble avoiding it during the day, it’s my cup of tea after dinner that sees the real temptation arrive. Wish me luck!
