No wondering for me right now, just cupcakes.
So today being the first day of the Dukan diet, I have eaten:
205g Lean Turkey slices
1 Tin Tuna
1/2 Pot Fat Free Yoghurt
and that is it. So I wonder, when any other day would have consisted of twice that much food with eight times that sugar and fats, why I don’t even feel hungry!? That’s less than 500 cals, obviously I’ve not had dinner yet, but so far only a quarter of my daily allowance and I’m not even peckish!
Welllllll, don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, so off to the gym I go- gonna work off 500 cals, and then I can have 500 more for dinner and I’ll have broken even! Whoop!
I followed the clichéd NY resolutions this year, get to the gym more, lose weight, see more friends, quit smoking. So, day two, 11am- I really want a smoke. BUT yesterday I didn’t want one all day long! How does that happen? “They” say that after three days you’re over the worst of the cravings, but I feel like they’re getting progressively worse, not better :| Fingers crossed that it doesn’t last- I’m determined this time I’ll quit properly.
Well, I’m finishing my coffee then going into town to browse the sales with my new found wealth from not buying cigarettes. If the cravings take hold and you hear about a mass murder in a shopping mall in the south of England, you’ll know what’s happened….
Well. It’s been a long time since I “wondered” anything (on here at least!), and I’ve decided the new year is a great time to start “wondering” some more. So- expect more from this blog, it’ll pretty much be the same shite as it was before, but there will be more of it. MOAR.
It’s New Years Day and I’ve woken up suprisingly fresh after a night of champagne and gin, beef brisket chilli and dancing around the living room to all manner of ridonkulous songs. So I’m pretty happy on the one hand, but now I have no viable excuse for a fry up, and lord knows I have to fit one in TODAY because I’m starting the dreaded “Dukan” diet in the morning.
So my wondering for today, do I feel fresh because I managed to drink within the lines of restraint (please stop laughing), OR is it more likely that I feel fine because I am in fact still drunk? I didn’t stop drinking until 4am, took a short walk home (and we all know fresh air is no good for a drunk) and then tumbled into bed for 5 and a half hours. Recipe for disaster, no?
Well, sod it. I’m having the fry up anyway- and maybe a burrito later. And Eton Mess for desert. And basically anything that is carb to load me up for the next 244 days of intense Dukan regime.
Kill me now?
