What does DWD stand for? It’s “Diet? What Diet?”
Today in Ireland we are celebrating Pancake Tuesday, which is the last day before on Ash Wednesday the 40 days of Lent start. I had originally planned to make healthy pancakes for myself with Yoghurt and Apply Sauce, but when I started baking for the rest of the family, my resistance crumbled almost immediately.
At least, after I finished my stack of pancakes with Nutella (yum) I haven’t eaten anything else for the rest of the day, apart from a bowl of plan yoghurt and a green apple, because I have not felt hungry.
The one thing that I know is important now is that this is only a day and not a relapse into my old eating habits.
I had been doing pretty well the last two weeks, getting my BBG workouts in (still doing half the set and wouldn’t be able to do more right now) and eating well. The weight is starting to come down as well, so I am hoping that today will not set me back too much.
The weather has been shocking here, a storm called Imogen has flown over the west of Ireland and brought a lot of wind and rain and random hail showers. Unfortunately that gave me plenty of excuses not to go for runs, and I have been pretty bad.
Last week over all, I walked just short of 22 km and my weight went down another 1kg, so total weight loss so far is 1.8kg, way above my target, so I am very happy with that. I just really have to get out and run more (only managed 3.5 km), especially because I have my 10 Mile race coming up in the not too distant future.
Did anybody else over indulge today?
