I should have had a cupcake

This week has gone to shit. I haven't lost any weight this week so far, I still have two more days until my official weekly weigh in but I am not hopeful of any dramatic change in those two days. I didn't expect a big loss after last weeks massive 1.4kg but I thought I'd at least lose something so it's very disappointing.

The only thing different about this week is that of course I have not been doing my nightly 30 minutes of stepping due to my knee injury. This is upsetting for me because I was kind of hoping that I could drop one or two nights of exercise and just do four to five nights a week but it really looks like I must exercise six to seven nights a week. Not good news for me, I'd much prefer it to be food rather than exercise that makes the difference with my weight loss because I find the food deprivation alot easier than having to exercise every single damn day of the week.

Also, carrying on with the week going to shit theme, last night we had a function/fund-raiser for our Museum. Hubby and I had to be there at 5:30pm to start setting up so it was too early to eat before we left home. We had wine and food to offer to the guests, including rice snacks, nuts, dip, crackers, cheese, cabana, sandwiches, and my favourite Red Rock Deli honey soy chicken chips which I have not eaten since January. By 7pm my stomach was rumbling so I had a few chips, at 7:30pm I was getting really hungry so I had a few more but I ate no more than a handful in total.

It all wrapped up just after 8pm but then we had to pack up all our gear so we didn't get home until 8:30pm. By that stage having worked most of the day, we were too tired to organise something for dinner so we ate some of the left over sandwiches from the function. I ate six ham and cheese triangles, so one and a half sandwiches in total.

Daily carb allowance: 100gms
Carbs consumed yesterday: about 130gms

So as you can see, this week has totally gone to shit and I should have just eaten the damn cupcake.
