    Day 16 - doubt this is going to be paleo proper. Horrifically hungover after such a fabulous evening!

    Breakfast - tea, omelette with onion tomato and spinach
    Lunch - gluten free pasta with tuna sweetcorn and peas and pesto. Some m&ms.... :-s
    Dinner - burger, chilli cheese fries & fried pickles with 3 cocktails... Only two gluten-free friends could go out and gorge on that. So good.

    Like I say, an eating day to forget...!

    Day 17

    Scorching in London
    Off to an exhibition on the South Bank and then who knows. Turns out my friend who's also doing paleo wants to 'see how it goes' relationship-wise, which is exciting and what I've been waiting for for ages, but now I've turned into a ball of angst because he hasn't returned my text and looks like I won't see him for 3 weeks - you can't tell me you like me and not make the effort to see me!! Argh. I need Prince Charming to turn up. So that's what I'll be waiting for post-exhibition.

    Breakfast - 3 egg cheddar omelette with lettuce & coffee
    1 square (the last square) of caramel & sea salt Lindt because I feel sad!!
    Lunch - salad with tuna, beetroot, coleslaw etc; cornetto ice cream a bit of bread and hummus a few jelly tots and cava. I have been miserable today!!
    Dinner - the fab bacon and mushroom cauliflower risotto Mark posted on here a few days ago

    Day 18

    Still feeling really low about this guy's lack of communication, having told me he likes me! Fed up of men turning into boys, he's 32 for god's sake, can't he man up?!
    So I'm going to have to take my mind off it as much as poss. Luckily work appears to be getting a little busier this week, and I've got my walk on Saturday to focus on.

    1 min squats, 15 full press ups, triceps press ups, 1 min plank, 45 sec side planks

    Breakfast - boiled egg, blueberries & banana with yoghurt almonds & ground flaxseed, coffee
    Snack - babybel cheese, pineapple chunks, coffee
    Lunch - leftover bacon & mushroom cauliflower risotto (still tastes great!)
    Snack - another babybel :-s and a hot chocolate from Pret...
    Dinner - massssssive salad with bacon & avocado yum! Peppermint tea and a couple of squares of 90% chocolate

    Day 19

    Still nothing from the boy since my last text 2 days ago. By now I'm really feeling like F*** him, so it'll be a shame for him to get in touch about meeting up, I'll be a right bitch!

    1 min squats, 15 full press ups, triceps press ups, 1 min plank, 45 sec side planks
    20 min walk in total probably, not enough fresh air

    Breakfast - boiled egg, banana blueberries & raspberries with yoghurt & ground flaxseed, coffee
    Lunch - olives & anchovies, seared tuna steak with green beans and a few mushrooms and fried courgettes; latte
    Snack - banana, peppermint tea
    Dinner - gluten free pasta with bacon feta tomato & pesto; babybel; square of 90% chocolate

    Feeling a bit headache-y and crap this afternoon, really praying I don't come down with something, with the Moonwalk just two days away!!

    Day 20

    This will be a half (ahem, non) paleo day. I'm going back to my parents' tonight and have requested a massive bowl of my mum's spaghetti bolognese as a carbolicious treat before the walk tomorrow. Which means tomorrow will probably be half paleo too. Just need to get through the 26 miles at 4am and if that means giving my body chocolate then so be it!

    1 min squats, 15 full press ups, 20 tricep press ups, 1 min plank, 45 sec side planks
    20-30 mins walking

    Breakfast - 2 boiled eggs, blueberries raspberries & banana with yoghurt & ground flaxseed, coffee
    Snack - red grapes (woops the sugar!)
    Lunch - spicy chicken, veg, rice/kelp noodle soup; quinoa & ginger yoghurt (disgusting)
    Snack - uh-oh my manager just bought a box of chocolates and I've suddenly got a lot of wrappers around my keyboard.... some hardcore calorie burning is going to happen tomorrow!
    Dinner - oh yum so good to be cooked for! Chopped liver and pickled cucumber with some matzah, spaghetti bolognese & salad, oh and you know a few strawberries & ice cream
