    Never say no to Champagne!

    Yeah for the nap, and have a great time tonight!

    okey dokey, it was a good night last night and I'm pleased to say i didnt drink 2 bottles of wine! However as noted yesterday, they do have good garlic bread, oh my, when i am talking good, I mean good, crunchy, dripping with garlic butter (and topped with cheese as well in this case) so yes i indulged . Then I had scallops wrapped in bacon and served with a chablis cream sauce and a spicy tomato salsa on rice. I mostly ignored the rice, probably had a forkful. Then for a main course I had chicken thighs with mushroom and bacon in a creamy sauce. Yum. I have to say though that everything was just a bit salty last night, the chef appeared to be very keen on it. I am happy to say that i passed on dessert, and they do make the best creme brulee but I had eaten to satiety. I was very tired, probably a little bit too much sun yesterday, I was quite pink as teh evening progressed. I dont feel burnt though

    so today, the fireman and i agreed that we are going to turn over a new leaf. no bread, no white potatoes, limit the sweet potatoes for a bit, and no cocktails (mid week at least) I'm also going to limit the wine intake during the week (I'm being realistic in that it is christmas coming u and there are more social events). I need to get creative with our meals this week.

    I also need to do more dog walking. i've ruled out bootcamp, I think I'll just completely bugger the shoulder if I do it, which is a shame in some ways, cause i am somewhat motivated at the moment and I feel I should seize the day. Oh well I have two sets of furry little eyes looking at me longingly right now, so I suppose I better get off my butt and get organised for the day. long dogwalks equals happy dogs and slow fat burning for me... its a winner really.

    Great ideas!

    well I'm afraid the dogs didnt get quite what was planned yesterday, however I got a huge walk... round and round the shops... I think I was out for 6 hrs and I can tell you I was completely utterly exhausted when I got home. I decided I should call it a day when I stepped out in front of a bus.... luckily he stopped before killing me

    Good food though yesterday, am proud of me.
    B: bacon and fried egg
    L: vietnamese chicken salad from the food hall at the shops, with a bottle of water
    D: Rack of lamb coated with dijon mustard and rosemary (and the fat layer crisped up beautifully and was sooooo tasty), roasted carrots and beets with feta, and a leek, mushroom and pepper bake (on a ground almond and nut base) Very nice, took a photo and one of these days I'm going to post my food porn photos. I had no snacks, I had no wine even though the fireman bought a bottle home with him. Good girl!!!

    So... shopping. Aaaaghh. Well I havent really been out and had a good day perusing the shops for at least a year... for heavens sake there was like a whole new street that had these cool funky shops and apparently they've been in them for a year. What the !!!! Of course the day was supposed to be about christmas shopping but what about me!! I tried on a good number of clothes but only ended up buying a pair of white businessy type shorts for work - they were on sale and they fitted, a size 6!!! $60 NZD. I saw a couple of absolutely gorgeous dresses but the price on both (over $500 NZD) meant that I didnt even bother trying them on, I mean what if they had looked good on me. it would be tragic. I need to earn more money.... a lot more money! which reminds me that it is brown envelope day on Thursday (that's the day everyone gets a brown envelope at work telling them if they are getting a payrise on 1 January!)

    anyway, here we are again, monday. sigh. didnt win lotto. Jeez, I have the same numbers that I've been playing for nearly 10 years, you'd think I'd win something wouldnt you...

    morning... and no, it's not a good one. Someone rear ended me on the way to work this morning. My new baby has a hole in her bumper! Grrr, but oh well, no point crying about it. Thats what insurance is for, and as long as the other woman totally accepts liability (which she should as it was totally her fault) then I wont have to pay an excess and neither will it affect my no claims bonus. Hmmm I was just telling the carpool girls about the fact that I received a speed camera ticket in the mail last night and that was going to cost me $170. Got clicked when I was going down to the funeral. C'est la vie. do the crime, pay the fine! So I was thinking oh oh, 2 things gone wrong, must be one more, but someone reminded me about my flat battery so I'm thinking phew... thats my 3!

    So onto yesterdays food log, mmm I tried really hard to be good.
    B: Scrambled eggs
    L: leftovers from night before, but not a lot
    S: ok I fell off the rails here a bit... in the morning I got a little package from our software suppliers and it had two mini choc bars in it. I put them away in my drawer (first mistake, should have given them away) Anyway I happened to open my drawer to find something about 2.30 and I saw this little mini choc bar and i ate it... just like that... without even a minute's thought. Bad. You'll be pleased to know I promptly gave the other one away so that I would not be tempted.
    D: No pre dinner snacks. Good. The fireman got home first and made Pad Thai, so yes it had some noodles in it, but not a huge amount. It was tasty! I had a glass of wine with dinner. I wasnt going to but the fireman made me But only one.

    After dinner we took the dogs down to the waterfront for a walk. I slept restlessly again last night, its hot at night and feels airless. Am pleased to say that I got on the scales this morning and my body fat had dropped below the 22% mark. I imagine my cortisol levels will be pretty high all day today after my little dingaling this morning so not expecting to have any fat loss today! I will try to not use the ding as an excuse to eat rubbish. Even though a minor thing, it is amazing that I am still a little shaky... total adrenalin surge I guess. I was very good, I was calm and kind to the lady in the Mercedes that hit me... in her favour was the cute little dog she had in the back seat - I'm thinking that was her moment of inattention!

    Sorry to hear about the ding Suze, but you're right, that's why we pay for insurance.

    I wouldn't get too caught up over one mini bar of chocolate, a little taste won't kill you. I hope you enjoyed it

    Hi Suse, yes having a prang in the car can be unnerving. I haven't had one for 10 years and I had a delayed reaction to it, started shaking then realised I had whiplash. Shame it's your new baby too. I drove over a dirty great nail yesterday didn't realise (because I was gassing to the kids and being silly) and drove around with it and totally buggered up the tyre, so got a new one today! can't believe I didn't notice it because when I saw the back of the car it was totally listing over to one side!!!
    Good on ya for denying yourself the wine, I'm finding it hard now summer is here, nothing like a nice sav with dinner especially if we eat outside.
    I think I've converted 3 more people to PB, well they've borrowed the book and seem to have given up grains and sugar.

    thanks NE. I did enjoy it... I wish I'd had it to enjoy today! But I've been very very good.

    oh yeah the nail in the tyre, so bloody annoying.

    There will be no denying wine tonight. It's been a fairly crappy day, and I've got a headache that only a chilled glass of sauvignon can cure!
