"You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose."

Week 1 Day 1

Go Natural Bar (4.5 points)


Lunch:
Did not eat, got news about Uncle and simply forgot

Snacks:
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)


Floor work 
done (1/3 for the week, black is done, grey is planned)


























Cardio

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?

Given the circumstances, I'd say it's NOT a cop out, it's living. You know when you're overeating and the approximate point value of most things...you will be successful Fiona. Sorry about your Uncle.

Sorry to hear about your loss.

I am sorry about your uncle...but i get your point about avoidability...even if I don't live longer, I want to live a fuller life than to be burdened and sickened by way too much weight.
I know you do too.

Yeah, it's not a cop-out when it's your real life happening.
I try to walk extra, and under-estimate.
And eat less and over-estimate....
Probably sets me about right, for both!

My condolences on your loss.
