I still haven't lost that pound and I feel despondent. I was so good yesterday but it still didn't shift. I am also tired as I went to bed late last night and got up early today with less than 6 hours sleep. As well as watching my food and upping my exercise I am trying to get enough sleep. I like to average 7 hours a night but that means I need to catch up on my sleep at the weekend because during the week I usually just about manage 6 hours a night. There is so much publicity at the moment on how lack of sleep is bad for your health and can lead to weight gain and diabetes that I need to make sure I sleep because I am a night bird - around 10pm I get a second wind and start doing things.
I have noticed that when I don't get enough sleep I am hungrier and I find it difficult to resist naughty things. Today is no different. A mid-morning snack of crisps, a lunchtime wine and a mid-afternoon snack of a double decker. Things have gone downhill fast.
I take my blood sugar when I get in and it is 5.0. Usually when I eat chocolate it goes to around 12 so I am surprised and it reminds me that the main reason I am doing this diet is to get off my meds and it is not all about the weight lost.
Because I have been bad I finish the day by having some eggs on wholemeal toast. I am annoyed that I have broken the diet as I feel I was doing so well but tomorrow is another day.
On a good note, even though I was tired I did go out for a run so all is not lost.
