30-Day Challenge: Days 8 and 9

Sorry, another dual post, and it's likely to be a fairly short one as I'm at work. The gist of it is positive; I'm back on track and, in more exciting (for me, anyway) news, A had his final presentation yesterday... he not only passed, but got nominated for an award sponsored by Foster + Partners, one of a handful of top architectural firms in the world *cries tears of pride*. I don't think I've ever been happier for someone. He'll need to present again next year to compete for that award, but for now he's taking a well-deserved break, and doing some job-hunting.

Finally, everything from the last year has been worth it. Yes, even the weight gain.

Days 8 and 9 were pretty good, considering that A and I were super-stressed about his presentation and food issues had to take a backseat. Day 8 I had 3 small slices of pizza in the evening (fail!) but apart from that had only eaten raw vegetables the rest of the day, so even though they were mostly junk calories I think I wouldn't have gone much over 1,000 if at all. Day 9's intake was:

  • Breakfast - 1 Tbsp scrambled egg made with 1% milk (40?)
  • Morning snack - 1 Jacobs cracker (35)
  • Lunch - nothing
  • Afternoon snack - Apple (80)
  • Dinner - small white wine (120), 1/2 a burrito (350) (I used Chipotle's calorie counter for this as the place we went to doesn't have one, so it might not be exact)
Total: 625

Exercsise: 4 mile power walk (50mins)

Now that A is done and less stressed I don't have any excuse not to get this sorted. My mini-motivation at the moment is this dress:

which I'm considering wearing to his graduation a week today. It's backless, and at the moment it shows just a bit too much tummy-roundness and not quite enough back-ribs, so this week is for fixing that.

Love to you all, thank you for your wonderful support and for following this blog :) I wish you a fun, relaxing and healthy weekend!

Ah, congrats to the man, Babe! That's so awesome! One small piece of pizza is not a train smash. Well done on the rest of your intake and your walk!

That dress is stunning! You're gonna knock 'em dead! <3. XXX.
