Yesterday was a very bad day for my CR. The first really bad day I've had all year, and I am as petulant as a child about it. I guess I can write it up to experience and try not to let it happen again, but I can see it very easily happening again on similar occasions - ie, when I am in London, socialising in an evening, and when that socialising is predominantly wine tasting (which is something I am very interested in and do not want to give up). The bulk of my calories yesterday probably came from alcohol. :-(
I tried to eat well during the day - berry breakfast; a cannellini bean and vegetable soup from Luscious Organic on Kensington High Street with some broccoli I grabbed from M&S and microwaved (never again), 100g mango, a banana, a small pot of soya yoghurt, 12 (!!) almonds over the course of the day. But I met friends in a pub before the tasting, and we drank wine there. At the tasting I took one sip from most of the glasses and tipped the rest (we are only talking about 1oz pours here), but a couple of them I finished. The worst of it was knowing that I was getting hungrier and hungrier, despite hoarding the carrot sticks that were on the table and having a little hummus as well. So when we left the tasting I was ravenous, and when we got home I was so cross with being ravenous that I drank another glass of wine, and I shouldn't have done that. Finally ate tofu and stir-fried vegetables (with mushrooms) and edamame at midnight.
I guess it's not really so bad when I write it down. But I feel a bit of a failure today.
