On holiday

Hola to my loyal follower(s)! I am on holiday in Zahara de los Atunes, and, through the marvels of modern technology, can type my blog and post it to the internet! How cool is that?

It has been a while since I posted, I know, but it can be a bit disheartening pouring out my thoughts onto the World Wide Web, where there is a possibility that they could be read by millions, if not BILLIONS, of people, but in reality, they are only being read by my one loyal follower. I have tried to encourage/persuade/bribe a few other friends and relatives to read my blog, and they have promised faithfully to do this, however once away from my nagging, they conveniently forget all about it. I mean, anyone would think they had lives to lead! Oh well, I guess I will have to continue to purge my mind of this meaningless drivel for no other reason than to please myself and my number one follower (well, my only one follower...).

So, I'm sure you're dying to know how I am getting on with the fasting/fitness/alcohol deprivation plan, and I can happily report that it is still going pretty well. The weight loss has plateaued, but that is fine because it is most definitely in the right place. I am continuing to do my two days of fasting each week, which should be leading to a little more weight loss, however I think I am being a little more indulgent with myself at week-ends, so if I every want to get into only one day of fasting, I will have to cut down on the extra treats I am allowing myself. Alcohol wise, I have managed to stick to the abstinence from Monday to Thursday pretty well every week, except when there is a very occasional night out on one of those days, I continue to log my drinks on that wretched website, and it does like to tell me that I am at "increasing risk" if I have more than 2 glasses of wine each night at the week-end. I get a bit cross with it, and will not be telling it how many drinks I have this week as I am on holiday and I know I will be in such big trouble for drinking every single day this week. I know it will be sending me emails telling me that I have "forgotten" to log my drinks this week, but I will not be intimidated! I will DELETE them! Ha! Still wearing the Fitbit and trying for the 10k steps per day, but not doing too well as the weather is so cold that it isn't very nice walking outside. I will most definitely be getting back to the strict 5:2 regime on my return, but for now, I'm off for a beer! Salut!
