I am so lucky. I thought I wouldn’t have a holiday at all this year but now Mr Shoestring’s mum has given us a week in Tenerife at her timeshare as she can’t use it. I still wouldn’t be able to go because I just can’t afford it so Mr Shoestring is going to pay for my flight. All I need to find is a bit of spending money, but if the weather is nice we should be able to keep that to a minimum.
Mr Shoestring asked me if I had my bikini ready but there is no way I would wear one!
I have been ignoring the extra half a stone I am carrying for some months now but the prospect of wearing skimpy clothes is focussing my attention. I have already upped my exercise so now I need to look at my diet.
I am not one for counting calories or following a fancy expensive diet, so I am just cutting back on carbs, fat and sugar. I’m cutting back on food generally!
Today I had a bowl of porridge for breakfast and a ham roll with mustard and no butter, plus three pieces of fruit for my lunch. Tea will be chicken with the skins removed, a small baked potato and broccoli. I am the worst for snacking in the evenings, so I have Ryvitas and cottage cheese at the ready, and I will knock the glass of white wine that I often give into on the head except at weekends.
As I have made a public declaration I have to stick to it!
