I think it's time that I owned up and told everyone how bad my healthy eating plan has been over Easter. I didn't actually get any Easter eggs, so none were consumed, but that didn't stop me from eating lots of other unhealthy things.
I had done so well right up until the beginning of the school holidays, and in total had lost two stone three pounds, or thirty one pounds. I didn't seem to struggle over February half-term, so I can only assume that seeing lots of Easter chocolate around the house during these holidays was my downfall.
I've eaten crisps. Before I started my healthy eating plan I used to eat lots of packets of crisps, I love them. I don't think there's a flavour I dislike. I thought I'd miss crisps more than I do actually.
Eleanor spent an afternoon baking so I had to sample what she made. There was caramel shortbread, Easter chocolate Cornflake nests, chocolate chip cookies and buns with icing and chocolate faces. Can you see a chocolate theme here? I tried everything.
We even had an Easter treat of a takeaway. I had a Chicken Bhuna with a few chips and a chapati. Indian food is my very favourite. The only time I get to eat it is when we have a takeaway as no one else in the family will eat it. Our takeaway also does pizzas, burgers, pasta, wraps and kebabs, so there's something for everyone.
I've even been indulging in the odd glass or three of wine. Very naughty.
I have to admit that most of the naughtiness was in the second week, so after putting on a pound at the end of the first week I was expecting to put on several at the end of the second week. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I'd only put on another single pound, so two in total.
It was back to school yesterday so there's no one here during the day to lead me astray now, so I'm back on the straight and narrow.
I'm just hoping that last week's indulgences don't catch up with me at the end of this week.
