Well after my day of indulgence yesterday, I feel yukky! I basically gave myself the day to eat all those little things that I'd missed... and I pretty much reconfirmed that those "cravings" I'd been having were all in my head! Eating all that "indulgence" food just made me feel bloated and ill... which is a good thing! To be honest, while it was nice to have a bit of ice cream, and chocolate, and cheese, it really made me realise that it wasn't anything special. Its just food. Cant believe I'm saying that, but there you have it! Total reversal of mindset - gotta be happy with that!
To cap off my day of food indulgence, I decided to have a glass of wine. I sat down at about 4.30pm to read the Sunday Mail with a nice glass of red wine. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and took my time with it too - it lasted until about 5.30pm. After that I made my pizzas (its funny preparing food when you're half tanked!) and decided to have another glass of wine (!!!!) So by about 7.30 last night I was feeling quite sozzled (cant believe that 2 glasses of wine gets me drunk these days - I used to be able to drink a whole bottle and still be fully coherent) and I woke up this morning with the worst dry mouth and feeling a bit hungover! Sad... sad... sad...
And now I'm feeling gross due to yesterday. I felt so guilty not going to gym this morning! I cant believe that last week I was dying for a rest, and now I'm giving myself one and I want to get back into it! I'm determined to at least have a few days off anyway. My knee is still "pinging" a bit, so it will be good to rest. I think a while ago Rae suggested I try Glucosamine for my knees, I might have to give it a go.
Thanks everyone for their lovely comments about my photos! I'm quite happy with the results, and I'm determined to stay pretty close to this shape for a long time to come. Cant wait to start designing my new programme for next week! I'm not sure whether to drop back to a 3 day split, or stay with the 4 day weight training. I do enjoy 4 days of weights (except legs - least favourite day) so I might stick with it. Although if I do 3 days weights I get to do more longer cardio sessions... hmmmm decisions, decisions!
