Sunday Weigh In 15

It's now been 15 weeks since starting my new healthy lifestyle I decided that each Sunday I will post up my progress, whether successful or not in the hope that it encourages me to stay positive and keep going.  Knowing that I will be sharing it all here will hopefully keep my willpower up!  In order for me to keep track and look back for ideas, I will be listing my food diary here as well (and who knows, it might inspire others to have a go too!)  It also gives me somewhere to put all the photos of the yummy food I love to take as it always looks so good!

This week started off badly due to major lack of organisation on the food front as we are away this week so I ended up always grabbing what I could (meaning what I could get in the shop over the road from work so as to avoid the temptation of bacon rolls or paninis from the cafe!  Didn't always work!)  While we are away I am thoroughly enjoying the Italian food which is especially good and a favourite of mine, especially pizza and pasta so I expect to have gained when I return but am not going to beat myself up about it.  Luckily I don't have any scales here so will have to wait until Thurs to weigh myself.  I am still being aware of what I'm eating and am still avoiding coke and sticking to fizzy water instead, (I even managed to get some skimmed milk in a supermarket as I was missing it!) although all the alcohol will be having a negative effect as I had cut down majorly but am enjoying the Prosecco and the odd glass of red ;)

Oh and I'm not putting ALL of the food pics on here since I've promised Mahj some specific food related posts and don't want to spoil it!  ;)
