Well not posting as often as I'd thought.

Its been an OK weekend, some snacking at work on Saturday and a yummy Saturday dinner of parsnip and shallot tart tatin (sounds strange I know but was delicious) and strawberry tart, both made by my hubby who always cooks on Saturdays.

Today also OK including my weekly mini-binge of two packs of McCoys crisps and a crunchie bar.

Crisps are my weakness. My achilles heel. I just can't get enough. I have had several days when I have eaten literally NOTHING else in a day. Just crisps at breakfast time, lunch time and dinner time. I can't count the number of times I've eaten a 6-pack, 10-pack or 12-pack in one go. Mt record was a jumbo 16-pack multi-pack eaten in one go. My binging on crisps started as a child and has haunted my my whole life. I decided to join Slimming World when, on the way back from a trip to the supermarket I'd eaten a whole 6-pack before I even got home, on the bus. And it wasn't the first time either. I was at a Slimming World meeting the next day.

Probably more than anyone wants to know but I feel I can be honest here.
Anyway McCoys are my current favourite so I try to limit the amount of crisps I eat on other non-fasting days during the week, and indulge in 2 packs of McCoys on a sunday morning.

Was pleased this morning though, to see the same number on the scales as yesterday which was the morning after a fast day.

Fasting tomorrow:

one weetabix, 100g strawberries and a 60 cal Count on Us yogurt
Ham salad made with M&S extra lean ham
Fry-Up (haven't done this before but looking forward to it:
2 rashers turkey bacon
poached egg
grilled tomato

Will post this quickly before I can rethink and edit out the too honest bits
