Day Eight... Return of the Cheeseburger

A mixed day. No hunger, drank lots of water. Work went well and I managed to tick off a few things that have been hanging around for a while.

I decided to walk home again rather than get the tube. My legs were a bit stiff so I fancied giving them a good workout. As I walked, the entire 4.5 miles just taunted me with the smell of takeaway. I passed burgers, kebabs, curries, fish + chips, Thai, Italian, Lebanese, pizza, chicken all smelling lovely.

Honestly, it was hell.

As I walked I comforted myself with the fact that I could have them all in six months or so. As I thought about it I realised that I need to stop looking at food as a reward. It's pretty perverse to reward yourself for losing half you body weight by eating junk food.

I really need to rewire my brain.

I had a fruit bar for lunch. I didn't get any in my first week, but they are easily the best bar I've had. I have a lemon to try for tomorrow's lunch, I hope it's nice too. This is a break through. The Nut and Toffee bars are pretty vile and I really want to eat bars at work. Mixing stuff in the office would be a pain in the butt.

I agree the nut bar is absolutly yuk, I tried one for the first time on Saturday with hot Banana it was ok but wont do it again!! The toffee are my favourite but I make them into biscuits, I cop it in to about 10 small pieces and lay 5 at a time on baking paper in the microwave they expand and become crunchy I then bag them and take to work, that is my dinner to chomp with a brew between 12 and 1, I do the same with the other biscuits too. My smell thing is roast chicken when I cook himself his sunday lunch it is always the chicken that gets me!! onwards and Forwards..............

Well done on the walking. Great stuff.

Nut bars not too bad toasted with a little salt but overall ot really that great. I still like the fruit and toffee ones either cold or as biscuits so have one every day.

Keep it up!
