the misery was thick and heavy as I dragged myself out of bed and off to work. I could very well have used another day in bed. As I left the house I promised myself I'd come straight home and roll straight back into bed and dive back into the world of Netflix.
Probably for the best I had to go to work, because from there I managed a very good day of eating. As is normally the case after piggy days, I wasn't hungry at all when I woke up. I still had a gut full of Red Rooster goodness... so I toddled off to work. It was busy, and I didn't even think about snacking. Then when lunch rolled around, it was some chicken and salad.
Two cup-a-soups with the noodles strained out after 3pm. Over the course of the day, my mood had lifted so much that I was keen for the gym! Massive turnaround and a triumph for good eating and "getting on with it".
Although the day was massively physical, and as soon as I sat down I started to doze.
Ah well. A great eating day is always good on its own merits.

Morning weigh in: 113.3kgs

The weigh in I deserved, but I raged all the same. I am officially tired of looking at the same numbers. I have been fluctuating around 114 for two weeks at least, and I'm MAD. I want nothing less than 109.9kgs, and soon.
110kgs, I'm coming for you blood!
Four slices of low carb toast with cheese for breakfast, and a Greek salad for lunch. No big slices of cheese extra, no fatty meat. Just a big fuck off pile of leafy greens with a few olives and some cubes of feta.
This kind of motivation won't stay peaked forever, but I am not fucking around while it's here.
Two cup-a-soups with the noodles strained, then gym.
Hit the treadmill for 30 minutes. For the first time, I did something extra. I was feeling so fast, strong and my pace felt so smooth, that for the last minute (yes, just one, lousy, stinkin' minute), I kicked the speed from 8.5km/h to 10km/h... then about 15 seconds later, I kicked the uphill from 0.5 to 3.0.
This milestone is small, but it's a milestone none-the-less. It will never be extraordinary again. But just for today, it deserves an additional point.

Morning weigh in: 112.4kgs

I AM COMING FOR YOU, 110KGS!!! And I will GET you!
Two slices of low carb toast with cheese, and a big Greek salad for lunch. A great big bowl with plenty of leafy greens, olives, cucumbers, cubes of feta and other goodies. A customer remarked "I should be eating that", and I truthfully replied "I'd rather be eating a parmigiana".
Two cup-a-soups with the noodles strained out at 9pm. Nothing more.
I was full of beans and keen to hit the treadmill tonight... but today was intense. Even by my usual standards, the amount of physical stress I put on my body at work was immense.
So it's off to bed before 10 for a good sleep and an early start.

I was up at 4:30am for work today. Started at 5:30am and for "breakfast", I had a Cornish pastie, convincing myself that it was okay because I'd be on my feet for the next 16 hours or so. It was absurdly busy throughout the day, so I couldn't really sit down to a proper meal (a salad). So I tried to minimise harm by avoiding carbs, eating five jalapeno poppers... they're quite fatty, but the portion was small and as stated... no carb content! All things considered, it wasn't a terribel effort. But, as the night wore on, I started to tussle with that familiar foe, physical exhaustion. It hung over everything I did, and by the time I finished (at 9pm) my body was sore and my brain was fried. Where I've lately had such mental fortitude and stubbornness, there was only a lazy sense of submission. I stupidly stopped at 7-11 after work and ate another Cornish pastie and a sausage roll.
I was so tough and motivated at the start of the week, but this was a test that the universe dropped on me from a great height, and I'm sad to say I failed.
I'm honestly happy with my efforts between 4:30am and 9pm, so I believe I've salvaged a point. But I'm subtracting two for late eating and carbs.

I skipped breakfast because I was still full from last night, and had a chicken karaage salad at about 11:30am. Another busy day at work and I was extremely well-behaved despite the fact that there was even more fatty, delicious, carby and otherwise naughty food around then normal. I pushed through and avoided all of it! It turned out to be about nine hours at work that day, and afterwards I trucked off to my good mates stag do. They were already a couple of hours in when I joined them, but I seemed hell-bent on catching up. there was no low carb beer on offer at any of the places we went, so I was hooking into whatever was cold and loaded with carbs. I was well behaved with food and didn't tuck into any of the seemingly endless plates of chips on the table.
By the end of the night I was utterly spannered though, and when my mates stopped off at the kebab shop, I indulged along with them, eating a felafel roll. Not the absolute worst, but heavy food and too late to be eating at all.
I lost a point for late eating, but the food wasn't that bad, and I didn't over-consume. I lose another for excessive drinking.
