Hurrah! My legs work again!!

Morning! So, YAY my legs feel far more human again and I can breathe without feeling my stomach muscles protest AND lift my arms above shoulder height! HA! This is progress people, progress indeed! Apparently it's called 'Delayed onset muscle soreness', or 'DOMS' for short and the experts dunno why it occurs.....sound hey! I thought it was due to lactic acid build up but apparently that's cojones. Live and learn hey! (brief aside - how on EARTH did I function before t'internet??!!Or my BlackBerry, for that matter!!)

Food catch up - Weds evening was as predicted, I had 2 Absolut Raspberri and slimline tonic, single measures so a point each, but worked dessert out at 3 points so I did go over, but hopefully pulled it back yesterday with the following:

B - strawberries (I am trying to eat them before they go off or fester in the fridge while I am away and the Husband gorges himself on junk food for an entire 4 days and most probably doesn't gain any weight at all - the GIT!!) (1.5), grapes (1), fat free yogurt (.5), tea x2 and coffee x 1, milk allowance (1)

L - 4 ryvita and 2 laughing cow (2) + (1), 1L water (0)

D - home made chick pea curry: tinned toms, 3 chillies, garam masala, chick peas (3), rice (2.5), cumin, coriander, mushrooms, broccoli, red pepper, spinach, onion, garlic, turmeric, chicken stock (0) = (5.5) plus a garlic wholewheat pitta (instead of evil naan bread) for (2).

Total for Thursday then was 20 points perfectly! I also swam a very frustrating 30 lengths in 20 mins behind the SLOWEST PEOPLE EVER WHO WERE SOOOOOOOOOO RUUUUUUUUUDE AND WOULD NOT MOVE OUT OF THE WAY!

So not as good as I would have liked but hey ho, today is another day!

Hopefully you can see above a picture of my breakfast ce matin! strawberries (1), ww peach yog (.5), single shot skinny latte (2) and yet more bloomin' water!

Lunch will be the usual ryvita (I OD on them when I cannot be bothered to make lunches!) and dinner will be leftover curry from last night with no rice but probably a garlic pitta again because they are LOVELY! And of course I will swim at lunchtime.

And then, dear friends, I am away until Tuesday! Barcelona here I come!! I am REALLY going to try and record everything I consume...last time I was in Barca we walked sooooooo much I didn't gain a single pound , in spite of drinking my own body weight in sangria and eating beautiful food every day!! So, fingers crossed the girls are up for some walking!! Will post my food lists FYI when I get back.

Other things to talk to you about include: Depo Provera EVIL, thyroid, doctors, lack of loss, etc etc. Remind me will you?!

Hasta luegito, guapas!!!!!!!

Point proven, we should just call each other best friends. My favorite of all time drinks is raspberry vodka & tonic. Yep, we are twins! uh...I gotta give myself a limit on those. One time, I had too many and attempted to dance a jig on the bar. I have no clue how to do a jig, or what a jig is, but I tried to do it.

Have an amazing time in Barcelona - take pictures so I can pretend I came with!
