(I have accidentally gone slightly over my points, not sure what went wrong with my earlier calculation. I think I did not include my dinner! I thought I had heaps of points left so had 2 biscuits when my Mum visited to simply use some up!!)
Go Natural Bar (4.5 points)
Did not eat, got news about Uncle and simply forgot
Thai beef mango salad (4 points beef instead of 3, total 6 points)
Rocky Road (2.5 points)
2 x curly wurly (5 points)
Gluten free chocolate muffin (4.5 points)
2 x d'lish biscuits
total 26.5 (allowed 25)
done (1/3 for the week, black is done, grey is planned)
I had some bad news (my Uncle passed away last night) but I refuse to use that as an excuse to go off plan.
He was morbidly obese, a smoker and a heavy drinker.
He was 71.
When my time comes I do not want it to be because of something I could have prevented by looking after myself better.
When we find out when the funeral is I will plan a flight to Queensland for the funeral. It may be just a day trip if dates and times work out.
I have coeliac disease so cannot eat gluten. Given how difficult that can make feeding me (especially if people are not very familiar with a gluten free diet), and in this particular situation with a death in the family, I feel it is not appropriate to be fussy about the point value of what is available. My plan is simply to do the absolute best I can with what is served for however long I am with my relatives. I will save points between now and then to give wiggle room, and exercise as much as practical to give some bonus points, but in the end just do what I can. Is that a cop out or a reasonable approach?
