Who'da thunk it!

I was only able to fit a 5:2 last week because I was away on a training course and life just didn't play ball.

I was really proud of myself because I still managed to stick to my fast day on Thursday despite having lunch provided by the course centre (no muffin for breakfast, only ate the veg and a couple of cubes of beef at lunch, black coffee all the way through). I was super proud of sticking to it that evening in my hotel room when I was all on my own; thanks mainly to the judicial application of pyjamas really early in the evening which meant I couldn't hit the vending machines and being prepared with low calorie snacks in my suitcase.

What has really struck me, though, is that I missed the fast I had had to miss on Saturday (pesky life, getting in the way!). And by missed, I mean that it has felt odd eating for 4 days on the trot even after only 3 weeks of this new way of eating. I was actually looking forward to today, to getting back on the fasting track, to not having to worry about what I'm going to eat all day.

So, whilst I may not have lost any weight last week, I'm going to crack on. I feel better, my clothes are starting to fit better again and I have finally come to understand that the scales are not the be all and end all. A long term solution to my food issues is, and I think I might just have found it.

Hope you all have a good week to come.x
