Weekend decadence

I'm proud of myself today. Really proud. Probably more proud than I should be but that's just how I roll.

The reason?

I ate out for lunch today and, for the first time ever, I modified my choice to suit my new healthy eating habits. I ordered the rump steak and chose baby new potatoes instead of chips and a nice side salad (instead of grilled tomatoes and mushrooms which I hate). Filling, ridiculously tasty and totally syn free!

Another reason?

I was at a blogger meetup type thing yesterday and completely resisted the tempation of not only crisps and cashew nuts but also pizza and chips! All four are some of my all time favourite foods but not a bite passed my lips. I ate lots of fruit instead and felt very smug. Haha. I did have a few gin and slimline tonics but those were my only syns. Not bad going considering that the weekend has always been a very difficult time for me, weight wise.

I'm feeling totally in the Slimming World zone now and finally feel like I know what I'm doing. Super psyched right now!

I was totally in awe of your self restraint at that meet up, seriously. I'm not even a crisp person but someone put crisps in front of me, so I ate them!
