It started so well with good meals and snacks and a nice, hard gym. Then we went out for a drink after school and ended up having dinner out (because I'm rubbish and I couldn't face going home to cook and eat later than usual). I'm suffering quite badly from tiredness at the moment. I think I'm getting enough sleep (though I'm going to keep a sleep diary for a bit to be sure) but I'm just exhausted when I get up, perk up a bit after a shower and breakfast, then crash out on the tube all the way to work, perk up a bit after a cup of tea and a snack, feel even better after an early-lunchtime gym, then lunch and a slow decline throughout the afternoon with no perking up after either of my afternoon snacks, crash out on the tube on the way home and really not feel up to much once I'm home. By 9pm I want to be in bed again. That's not fun.
None of the meal was excessive really; the only large portion size was the starter of country terrine with a couple of big bits of toast. The main course was a medium sized steak with a handful of broccoli and a ramekin of dauphinoise potatoes and the dessert was a steel ramekin of a very small amount of lovely apple crumble and a teeny scoop of ice-cream. I didn't feel overly full at all afterwards. But. It was way off piste and the wine was a bit much for a Wednesday. It was lovely and I enjoyed myself, and I'm not feeling guilty as such, just a bit too soon after the last meal out. I know it was my decision to eat out both times, so I've only got myself to tell off.
I'm very glad to be back in the gym swing of it, but the food/drink has to come with it too for it to be particularly effective at shifting that bit of fat that I laid down whilst laid up (so to speak). I'm still in my target weight range, but I'd rather be back at the fat % I was just before we went skiing; that was nice! (I really need to measure it, but I'm scared to find out how bad it is)
