I am so looking forward to Tuesday, because Tuesday is when I will be back in my house, alone, for 4 full days and I can eat CRON-ily and... I can't wait.
I've found it tough the last few days combining my social life and CRON. Because of the social drinking. I think it's fair to say I have tumbled off the CRON wagon since Thursday.
We ate out twice yesterday and I think I made good CR choices (if not ON). For lunch I chose cauliflower cheese with purple sprouting broccoli from the menu, and asked them to go easy on the cheese sauce. As it turned out, the cheese sauce was very thin, and it was easy for me to lift the cauli out, shake it, and put it on the plate with the purple sprouting broccoli which was not purple sprouting broccoli but steamed winter greens!
But we drank some wine.
I snacked on mushrooms and salsa when we got home.
But then we drank some wine.
For dinner I ate a pear and fennel salad, and a main dish with grilled aubergine and hummus and salad. The chef had gone very heavy on the oil on the aubergine, so I didn't finish my plate.
But we were drinking wine.
today, I ate two slices of rye toast for breakfast alongside my berries because I was feeling... delicate.
For lunch I roasted (1 tbsp EVOO) beetroot and carrots from the garden and mixed them with rocket (arugala), spinach and watercress into a salad. We also had some hummus, and some lentil salad, and 1 avocado sliced up, and some mushrooms and celery for dipping (and the 3 others and the cat ate shell-on prawns - my cat is as mad for prawns as April's beastie; she is 26 years old, so I can't deprive her of her treats!).
But we... yeah, we did that again.
So... Great food. But... I need to get some serious self-discipline. April posted about some friends and CR not mixing. This is not an option for me. These friends are my weekend neighbours and very important to me, and of course there is also P.
None of them know I am attempting CRON.
I am back to London tonight to look after a friend who is going under anaesthetic tomorrow. But I am back tomorrow evening, and then it's right back on the wagon in all senses. And I will do some serious work on getting a CRON balance in my London days, and be a lot more strict with myself on the wine because it really, REALLY, is not worth it.
No crunch until Tuesday!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend. :-)
