I think that was my thumb!

Strike one: No veggies with dinner.

Last night Bike Boy BBQ-ed up a pile of meat (and some chicken breast for me), which he and the boys planned to eat man-style: with bread and sauce. As I walked back in the door after picking up The Middle Child from work, he asked if I was going to make a salad.

Hmm, let's see.... it's cold, and I hate salad in cold weather. Dinner's ready right now and I'm hungry. I'm also tired and that immediately leads to my can't be bothered reflex kicking in. So dinner consisted of chicken and a couple of pieces of a garlic and chive twisty thing I bought from the bakery.

Lesson to take away from this? Be prepared. I could have organised salad or veggies before I left. If it was there, all ready to serve, I'd have eaten it.

On the positive side, I didn't eat a massive amount of bread. And I resisted the urge to have a drink. Champagne on Cup Day is practically compulsory, but nope, not a single drop did I have. I also smacked down the evil chocolate bitch, who likes to pop up every time I go to the supermarket. Chocolate! Or chocolate ice cream! What about chocolate cake? she whispers. I thought about how much better I'll feel on my birthday without the extra kgs and ignored her.

Not such a bad effort, really.

Hey Andrea, she is a little bit of a legend isn't she? I have to hurriedly walk on by when the Lindt is on sale xoxox

Good on you for slapping that chocolate bitch around!

I always have a supply of Steam Fresh frozen veg in the freezer for times when I can't be bothered. Not as nice as fresh but it does the job :o)

Uh...I had some of those in the freezer, Michelle. Just shows how lazy I was being. LOL
