I seemed to be very tired, maybe because I ate light and only had 1 coffee. But it meant I was too slow getting the roast on and then we had to wait so dinner was more than 1 hour late. I tried to compensate by eating an extra carrot but ended up hungry all afternoon and evening.

Tiredness and a text to from Jay and I messed up. I'm not too upset but nor am I happy about it.

I made muffins for visitors, Mum and Jay, and ate more than my share plus I ate bread cheese and honey sandwich. I can't remember now exactly how much but it wasn't helpful. I was simply too tired to prepare a proper meal and TWJ wasn't well. Roll on tomorrow.

I was very hungry several times today as there were some very long gaps between eating opportunities. I also ate whatever I felt like from what was available at our morning and lunch breaks. I was very tired when I got home and took the easy way out. A sensible person would have had the evening meals prepared in advance but that wasn't going to happen this week. I'm not unhappy with how I ate .... not like last weekend, because I expected to have this kind of day. It did not sneak up on me. I will accept the weight gain that shows on the scale tomorrow and I will undo the damage over the next few days.

8 days left of my 25 day challenge. I haven't handled this at all well in the sense that my challenge was to stay true to LFL and get my exercise. On the other hand I have lost 1/2 the weight I set out to lose which means I am not going to reach my weight goal either but I'm 100 grams from being into double figures, 20 pounds away from pound wonderland which is better than if I'd done nothing. I will continue doing this until the 25 days are up and begin a 6 week LFL cycle from fresh next Tuesday or is it Wednesday? That will change my official weigh day for LFL but I will keep Mondays for SFL and HYC. Actually it doesn't change anything for LFL because part of the program is weigh daily which suits me. 25 days is a nice round figure for my personal challenge. OK it doesn't match the 7 day week but LFL does that. 25 days works so I'm not changing that. 50 seems too long and somehow 21 doesn't have a ring to it.

I am not living a healthy life although I've dropped off over 1 kg this week.

I have been focused on weight loss since January 16th. I have been doing LFL for 7 weeks, although somewhat half heartedly of late.

I need to re-focus and eat at regular intervals. 2 meals a day is not really acceptable and if I don't begin walking again my legs will fall off from disuse.

I'm pleased to see I'm a smidgeon away from being less than 100kg. That at least means I am heading away from serious trouble.
