...as the impulsive dramaqueen I am, one week of success with weight-loss means I already see myself dancing off in the sunset looking like a crossbread of Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire...and I dream a little about clothes styles I will be able to wear without looking ridiculous..
But I have to admit that however successful I will be that picture is very far away so I want to think about these other closer goals that I long for.
One is already achieved - being able to tie my shoelaces from a standing postion without holding my breath. A week ago I had to ...hmmpff... hold it and tie them fast and it was really uncomfortable. Those four lost kilos meant that I can tie them and breathe at the same time
Next goal will be to be able to put on my stockings without having to take extra precautions about how I sit... I don´t know how many kilos away that might be, I should think about another four - eight.
I think that the same weight level also will make me able to wipe my hiney comfortably after doing you-know-what , for the moment it is kind of a challenge...
Fasting day yesterday, was not as hard as I have estimated. It is weekend and daughter is here, both things very dangerous to my eating mode... I made us chickenbreasts for inner and ate mine with fried mushrooms, lettuce and tomato and for daughter I made some mashed potatoes and lemon sauce. The chicken breast was not half as nice as those mushrooms...bought fresh mushrooms and mixed some soy with water and garlic and poured over them in a non-stick pan. And when the fluid was gone I added 20 grams of butter. Usually I fry mushrooms in butter but I think I got the same flavours, if not even better with this method. 417 calories all together.
Today is eating day again, started with a breakfast of smoked salmon, hardboiled eggs, lettuce and a tomato, yummy!
I did not lose any weight during the past two days, on the other hand I keep the four kilos lost during four day fast monday-thursday, that is great.
So far I do not feel deprived, when craving for something comes as it did yesterday when daughter made popcorn at night I can tell myself "I can eat that tomorrow if I want"
Left daughter at theatre yeserday and she and our leader created her hul hoop act in our show... IF it works it will be more than amazing! Again I am flabbergasted by the creativity of our leader, she found an approach to the hoop number that will be fun to watch. Not that it requires that much technique in hooping but my daughter will have to be able to mime well...I don´t know if she will be able to pull it off.
I was asked to jump in in a "murder-quiz" next weekend, I don´t know the name for that event in english, it´s when you set up a detective story at a conference hotel or any other place where people spend time as a group and you give them a story with clues and some acting and they are supposed to solve it. We will not have the murder, our quiz challenge to the group is to figure out who will be murdered and then prevent it. Interesting and scary as it involves a lot om improvisation and I am not that comfortable with that... but it will be fun! The trick seems to be to learn the background story really well and then act on it.
