It’s that time of the week again!

Yes folks it’s Weigh In Wednesday and I’m pleased to say that the scales were kind this week.  It was not a big loss, 100g but at least it was down and not up. I’m all for celebrating any kind of downward movement on those scales. And after the revelation of the camo pants this week, maybe it is greedy to expect any more mind blowing success in this one little seven day period.  The other reason that I’m not  disappointed in my loss is that TTOTM is looming large and the fact that I’m recording a loss instead of a gain at this time of the month is a cause for celebration all on its own. Usually, I would be looking at 0.5-1kg gain, and muttering how unfair it is that the guys never have to deal with this (inner teenager alert!), so this is a nice change.

The Christmas celebrations start this week.  I have a work Christmas dinner this Friday and and I am quite proud of myself on that front.  We had to select our meals in advance and it is a 2 course menu.  Usually I skip the dessert menu as I have a nut allergy and desserts are fraught with anaphylactic danger signs for me.  This year however, the restaurant is doing a completely nut free menu so I would be safe if I chose to partake, and believe me when I say the sticky date pudding was whispering sweet nothings to me as I made my selections.  But then I flexed my newly developed willpower muscle and thought “I really don’t need dessert, I never really eat it anyway” and just chose a main course.  When the organiser came to point out my “mistake”, instead of flip flopping as I could have done, I stood firm and told her that yes I was aware that I had not chosen dessert and no I did not wish to rectify it even if I was still paying the full amount for the dinner.  I felt 10 feet tall to have stuck to my guns.

On Saturday night I have dinner and drinks with my gym friends.  This is a much trickier proposition as the restaurant/bar does not provide a menu on their website, I  always like to check it out and get a handle on what my options are both calorie and allergy wise. I guess I will just have to take my chances and say no to the chips…..unheard of!
