Happy New Year to everyone!
I had a great New Year's Eve and I was quite controlled with what I ate and drank on the night. I'm not generally much of a big drinker, but it's nice to let loose a little at this time of the year. To minimise some of the damage, I made sure that I only drank sugar free drinks. Alcohol is quite high in calories, but at least I wasn't adding to that with sugary soft drinks too. I'm liking the sugar free lemon ruskis at the moment, they taste pretty good and not too different to the originals.
I made a giant fruit platter and took that to the BBQ with me, which was good as I (and everyone else) had something to snack on, instead of chips and dips etc. I had salad and bbq chicken skewers for dinner, so diet wise I was happy with how things turned out.
THEN CAME NEW YEAR'S DAY....
I don't know what happened! I didn't drink a significant amount and I didn't wake up with a hangover, but I COULD NOT stop picking at things all day long! You know things are almost at rock bottom when you resort to eating peanut butter out of a jar with a spoon
. The day started off fine, but I just kept snacking more and more as it continued. A couple of biscuits here, a handful of chips, an icecream at night.... and probably a bunch of other things that I've temporarily chosen to forget about. So, I just wrote off that day and decided to start again on Tuesday morning.
Fortunately, things have been fine since then. I've been back swimming on Tuesday and Wednesday and I also went and did xbox kinnect with some friends tonight. I was always a bit skeptical of games like that and didn't really think it was possible to get much of a work out from them, but MY GOD! "Just Dance" practically killed me after two songs, it was a massive cardio workout! I was sweating and breathing heavily and reaching for water so fast! I'm probably one of the world's least coordinated people, but it was a lot of fun to play. My friends and I made it through about 10 songs before we crawled off to die on the lounge. We're going to try and make it a weekly activity (if we have the time).

Keep working hard, you'll be there soon! I was always so envious of girls who could walk into shops and put on anything and it would look great on them. I'm nowhere near that yet, but it's nice being able to go into a store and have a lot more options to choose from
Thanks for the support, hope you guys are all having a good week!
