meantime here's an "everyday" post to keep you going!
oh here's my nails from the wedding a lil french manicure, i love a classic french manicure.
Sunday was awful! my cousin and i had a one night stand with a bottle of gin at the wedding and lets just say the aftermath was not pretty all round, especially given the fact that i've for all intents and purposes given up drinking, it hit me pretty hard, i've no idea why i got so carried away when i've been so good lately but never mind!
food wise i was pretty good, Friday night we had a family meal all the girls and my dad, my mum made quiche and salad and new potatoes, followed by a pink strawberry cake. the whole thing was delicious, it was probably the naughtiest things got food wise over the wknd, so not too bad, but MAN i paid for it right afterwards i think the white flour in the quiche and the cake just about killed me i was in agony!
saturday, i had podge for brekkie, tuna and avocada wholemeal wraps and pittas for lunch and then at the wedding i opted for the veggie option, a goats cheese tart with a large salad. i was feeling pretty angelic after that, as the other option was carvery meat, white baps and salad/potato salad/pasta salad. i did however finish it off with a wedding cup cake. (pics of the meal and the cupcakes to follow in tonights wedding update post).
Sunday i skipped out on breakfast the Gin was still too strong to think about that! (oopsy!), we went out for lunch, the menu wasnt very healthy friendly, so i ordered the jacket potato skins, with a large salad on the side, HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT! the skins were deep fried, and i couldnt face deep fried so i left them, the "large" side salad was a sprinkle of iceberg and some limp tomatoes and cucumber! pathetic! i left the lot, and a bit later on made wholemeal pancakes and strawberries and banana with agave for everyone! i was very popular!
so yesterday i was back at work and still feeling the after effects of the wknd, i managed till about 2pm then had to bail out and go home.
Breakfast was unpictured toast
and lunch was instant podge - my attempt at staying on the wagon with no motivation to make anything!
with one of these babies crumbled on top
at 2pm when i bailed on work, i stopped at the shop for diet coke, but by the time i got into the shop i realised it wasnt diet coke i needed it was something rehydrating, so i got this, it was everything i needed/wanted it to be and more! i need more of these in my life!!
By dinner time i was back on domestic form, and having been given a big bag of salad stuff from my dads patch and the first of the home grown beets, i realised i NEEDED a whole lotta veg NOW!!
so i roasted a tonne of veg and made a "large" (properly large this time) salad on the side
roasted onion, parsnip, carrots, beetroot, sweet potato, and at the end i threw in a couple of mushrooms and baby corn
everything on the salad plate is from my dads patch..........hmmmmmmmmmmmm!
but my eyes were much bigger than my tummy, and i was most upset when i couldnt finish it all.
later on, in an attempt to pump some more goodness into my poor battered body, i had a protein, frozen berry smoothie in a bowl
and today, i'm most dissapointed that after 2 days since the Gin, and all the goodness i attempted to have yesterday to get this body back to health i STILL dont feel normal again today, yesterday all that kept me going was the promise that it'll all be ok tomorrow, and alas it isnt! please tell me it will all be ok tomorrow!!
tonight i'm going to my mums for dinner, as Buddy's off out, the i'll go home and blog the wedding, and an uber early night (i'm thinking 9pm!) and pray its all ok tomorrow!!
