Day 11 - yep, my bad...

I had such a fantastic day today!  Well, half of it was fantastic - the first part was spent at the School sorting out School things but the second part was spent with gorgeous Trish doing things that only Trish can do best :)

I can't remember the last time we spent time together where there was no one else.  No kids.  No Husbands.  No one.  It was a long time before the babies were born, I just can't remember how long. 

I had my first shake at around 1pm (take note of this - this explains my, ahem, muck up later on in the day...).  I had a go of Trish's vibration platform - I sat on it and it was SO cool.  It's one of the ones that boost your circulation.  It probably wasn't the best thing to have right after my shake but it's certainly something that I'll look at getting when I am a bit smaller.

We then looked through her nail polish and I was stunned at the array of colours so we thought it was necessary to go and get me some as well so we did!  We then sat and drank our bottles of water chatting about everything and nothing.  It was just what I needed :)

She then took me to a fantastic place called Basfoods - OMG!  It has EVERYTHING that you could ever need - oils, spices, flour, nuts, herbs, cheese, snacks, sauces - it was fantastic ( I have never seen anything like it!  I bought a few things for the pantry but avoided more things than what I bought.

We had planned a trip to Savers but we ran out of time so we went to the Salvos instead.  That sufficed!  I managed to get out of there just under $100 which means a successful spending spree me :)  Trish bought me this gorgeous bag as a 'well done' gift.  It was a fantastic afternoon.

Thank you, Trish xoxo

On the way home, I stopped off and bought a bottle of water.  I picked up the Boys, Brad and the babies and we went shopping before we went and got dinner.  I was STARVING at this point only having 1 of my shakes so I decided to have Subway.  Now - I feel bad writing this as it's something I wasn't going to do but, I also need to be honest to myself and say what I've done.  It's not the end of the world.

I had a 6 inch instead of a foot long like I'd normally have and I had one of the 6 grams of fat or less subs.  It was so good to have something to eat - something I could get my teeth into.  The first thing in 11 days.  I guess the good thing about the first 2 weeks is that they were voluntary, not mandatory.  If I did this in 2 weeks time, it's not good at all but, today, I could probably get away with it.

I still feel guilty for eating it.  I feel bloated.  I feel full which is a shock - a 6 inch sub would have never filled me 2 weeks ago.  I feel as though I've 'let the team down' but, I also need to realise that it's not the end of the world and I need to acknowledge that I know where I went wrong today - I didn't have my morning shake or my lunch one on time therefore I was very vulnerable when it came to tea time.  Don't get me wrong - I thought about Subway for a long time before having it - it took me about 15 minutes to work out if I was going to have it or not.  It wasn't a decision made lightly.

Now that I think of it, the Subway would have had the same amount of Kilojoules in it as the 2 Optifasts that I missed out on so I guess it's not so bad.

Anyway, it's done now.  Back on track tomorrow.  Back on focus tomorrow.  I'm happy it was Subway and not the Whopper with Cheese that I've been craving for the last few days!

Things I've resisted today - Fetta cheese, apricots, dried banana chips, cashew nuts, coffee,  cheese naan bread, seaweed rice crackers, a giant freddo frog and red rooster cheesy nuggets.  Oh, and doughnut king doughnuts.


  1. I know it's easy to feel disappointed but you did well to only have a 6inch sub. There are many other take outs that you could have gone for like KFC or Maccas but you didn't. You are doing so well hun and your only human.

  2. honey u made it to day 11! dont be upset, and dont let it stop you from your goal. just think of all the other subways and aweful food u would have had in those 11 days and how you would have still been carrying around that extra 5kgish you have already lost. we all need to treat ourselves. weather it be a glass of wine (or five) or a healthy subway ... i know itll be harder to do it once uve had your surgery but NO ONE can NOT treat themselves. dont be disheartened. this lapband is about making life changes which your doing, which is SHOWING. i can see youve lost weight. and your making HEALTHY choices.

    keep it up beautiful xox
