And the scales said.......


I'm having a grouchy day today....so I'd stand well back if I were you. I woke up feeling like this and my mood certainly didn't improve after stepping on the scales. This morning, you see, was WeightWatchers weigh in day, a day that I have been dreading all week. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I'm just not 'in the diet groove' at the moment. If you've been on a diet, I'm sure you know what I mean by that. It's a state of mind I suppose, more than anything but once you're there, things fall in to place and the world seems a rosy place. When you're not there it's like swimming through a large bowl of thick custard..(hmm, that choice of analogy speaks volumes too).

So anyway, this morning I got on the scales. They went up. Bugger. That would be the second week in a row that I'd have gained, not good with my WW blog due to go live any day now. So I picked up the scales and moved them to the right a bit. I took a deep breath and expelled every last puff out of me. Then I got back on. They went down. Only 0.2lb but a loss is a loss. I then got off quickly before they changed their mind. So, I can now record a loss...with a clear conscience but I SO wish I was getting the 1lb or even 2lb losses that I need.

I was strong again this morning taking an elderly Auntie shopping as I resisted the offer a cream cake as a 'Thank You'...they're lovely too those vanilla slices.... I opted for a few of the weekly magazines instead to do a bit more research. My writing this week has been non-existent and I'm throughly disappointed in myself!

I came home and got a bit of exercising done....I got the rebounder out and put one of Steps CD's on and bounced and boogied around a bit. It's better than nothing I suppose but I don't feel fabulous and lean after it!

Then I had the wonderful idea of digging my colour additions hair kit out - mistake! These are highlights that you stick/glue into your hair. Except they are old now, haven't used them for years. So I decided to shove a few purple ones in. First one was OK, the second one went horrifically wrong and I now just have the glue stuck to my hair......but not the purple extension. Not quite the look I was aiming for. I tried to get it out but I've not had much luck so I think SLA will have to help with that later! I did manage to put one in the other side so I'm not too lopsided but I wish I hadn't bothered now!

So, that's the day so far today. Thank Crunchie (Mmmm) it's Friday - that means Subway for dinner tonight! Yummmy! Maybe I'll try to save enough points for a McFlurry on the way home too......

Blimey, your hair disasters sound on a level with mine! Hope you get the glue out and have a good weekend. Well done on the cream cake avoidance, they can be very sneaky :-)

Mummy said...

Thanks Tam :) Needless to say I've bunged it all in a ponytail and am trying to forget about it for now!!

Sunshine said...

I think I need a picture of the glue in the hair. How does that cheer you up? ;D

You should be so proud of yourself...you avoided cream cake. See, all you had to do was mention that and that is now on my list of things to do today. Be proud of yourself. I've already gained two pounds just thinking about the words...vanilla and cream together...

Hey you are losing and that is the important thing! Good for you! Sorry your highlights didn't work out...I love to look funky here and there to...and yea Subway...sounds yummy!!! Enjoy!! :)

Debs said...

Oh poor you, what a day. Mind you you did lose something in the end, although I'd love to see your hair.

Mummy said...

Sunshine - thank you for seeing the positive :) I've just turned down a McFlurry too! Go me!

Tiffiney - the subway was delish...mmmm A veggie delite on honey oat with southwest sauce! Yummmmy :)

Debs - thank goodness I could show some loss at least! WW have asked for another photo (a hi-res portrait shot apparently) so maybe I'll be brave enough to share it to show the purple.....if not, maybe they'll still be in for the panel next Saturday....or at least the glue might still be there!
