This Weekend

I continued to try and be strict with myself over the weekend. Apart from a small chocolate treat on Saturday and a bit of a naughty lunch Sunday I was successful. I also went without an energy drink, not even a sugar-free one and I didn’t even crave one. This is huge for me, I can’t remember the last time I never had an energy drink at least once a week.

It was another busy weekend of sorting ourselves out for the week and gardening saturday. Sunday was spent moving really heavy furniture into other parts of the house like American style fridges and washing machines.

This Week

I am still going strong during the weeks and sticking to my diet. It can be hard at times especially when my wife is sat next to me eating cookies but my will power is a lot stronger.

Just as I had finished writing that last sentence, I noticed my wife and son were making cupcakes and I couldn’t resist, I had to eat some of the cake mix. It’s too good to miss out on when I’m sat watching my son just about to dive into the bowl.

I have to give a huge shout out to my wife Amy. Not only is she looking after our two-year-old son and five-month-old daughter while I work, but she has also supported me so much in my journey, I couldn’t do it without her. She cooks almost every night apart from the very rare occasion when I do it. I keep throwing new meal ideas at her and she keeps smashing them out the park. So my favourite meal this week is another I have asked from her and one of the best yet, Quorn Chicken Casserole.
