Fast Day 17 Total:  500c

After all the indulgence of the weekend, it was quite nice to have a Fast Day today, and I certainly didn’t feel hungry this morning.  Was out and about till about 1.30pm, and I will admit that there were some yummy smells coming from some of the Asian restaurants I passed, but I managed to keep on walking just fine.

I will probably regret this tomorrow, BUT, I have decided to do my second Fast Day tomorrow, or at least another Fast Day tomorrow- it will be my first back-to-back Fast Days.  Am not sure how it’ll go, but after all the eating over the weekend I thought I would feel better for it.  Plus after last weeks weightloss I daren’t step on the scales tomorrow, so 2 Fast days in a row is my version of wimping out.  I shall weigh myself after the second (Tuesdays) Fast Day, so Wed morning, and hopefully there will have been no ill-effects from the weekend (which did involve macarons – fancy ones from Laduree, icecream, a mini apple pie, cheese n crackers, wine, cocktails, TWO Thai meals, and mountains of peanuts at Shady Pines bar- gotta love free bar nuts!).  I will probably do 3 Fast Days in the end, my usual Thursday one too, unless there are ill effects from 2-in-a-row.  Then my extra special goodness will make up for my extra special badness! 🙂
