Or Week 11 and a half. I'm late I know, I do try and do these every week but with the festive season kicking in and Diana and I going to Amsterdam for the middle of last week my days are all over the place. Here's this week's festive blog reading music, enjoy!
|Amsterdam. You beautiful bastard.|
|Work parties used to be drunker that this|
|At least it's low carb.|
So where these events are invariably going to include rich food and a degree of boozing and I'm certainly going to indulge (I just am) it's again about making good choices in the gaps. There will likely be beer had at the Ginger gig - it's an annual year end pissup - but that doesn't mean I'll be having all the beers and greasy sandwich to help the next morning as I may have done previous years. Busy evenings and a sore ankle are keeping more out of the gym more than I'll so make up for it by getting to swim before work or doing something at home. Meals out tend to be filled with temptations and harder to make healthy choices, (especially when we're heading out somewhere special like this for Di's birthday!) so I'm making sure my other meals at home or work are on point, can't let it slip on all fronts even if I'm going to a little on one front.
|Gluten free almond pancakes, fruit and Greek yogurt.|
|Lean protein, green veg, low GI carb. Feckin' outstanding dinner.|
It's important to be realistic. I'm not going to enjoy this holiday period eating the same way I have for the last 11 weeks but I am going to go right back to that way of eating on New Years Day, the gaps between the indulgences until then are going to be healthier than ever and I'm even going to keep getting off the sofa over the next couple of weeks and get the exercise in when I can. Next week is week 12 of the 12 Week Transformation.... can't let it all go to pot now!
Thanks for reading, here's a couple of Dutch cats as your reward
