Day 120 – Cruise (PP)

Standard

Yay, finally a drop in the scales. Just the boost I needed to get my chin up ready for the new week. 77.9 today, so 6.9kg till my final goal. Unfortunately I missed my mini goal deadline of 77kg, but I will try to achieve it as quick as I can.

I am being much stricter with what I eat, and I am slowly getting back into the ‘no carb cravings’ zone, which is a happy place to be 🙂

Today is the 31st of October in Australia…so that means the modest beginnings of Halloween Trick or Treaters trickling through the streets. Whilst Halloween is not something that has really been celebrated in Australia, shops are taking it on board selling cheap costumes and plastic fangs. I personally haven’t given lollies out to the handful of groups that have knocked on our door. I would doubt that many of the kids would even know what it is really about…me too for that matter! Do you celebrate Halloween? Please enlighten me, what is it all really about?

Breakfast: 2 Eggs and 2 Egg Whites Scrambled with 1/2 slice Kraft ‘Free’ Cheese

Late Lunch: Sliced Turkey, Chicken Breast & Pastrami and 1 skinless Chicken Drumstick

Snack: Yoplait ForMe Caramel Tart Yoghurt… very fancy individual ones…slightly higher in carbs than the others but oh so tasty

Dinner: Couple of tiny pieces of Beef Jerky (not very hungry)

Drinks: About 1.5L Water, 600mL Coke Zero, Chai Tea…yummy!

Exercise: Nothing today

Lauren.

SW: 99    CW: 77.9 😀

  1. From what I know about it, in pretty simple terms it originally began to mark the end of summer (sort of explains why it never really made it big here in Oz). People believed at this time that the border into the “otherworld” thinned making it easier for spirits to pass through so they would dress up in masks etc to scare the spirits away. Originally turnips were carved as jack-o-lanterns, but pumpkins were easier to carve & get in USA so they became more common. As with most things, it’s become much more commercialised over time, so it’d be interesting to see how many people that celebrate it actually know the true meaning. The kids seem to love it – but who wouldn’t with all that sugar 😮

  2. I don’t celebrate it either or allow my kids. It’s purely principal thing of it’s not an Aussie thing. My understanding of it is back in England it started the giving of food at the end of summer the poor children would knock on the door of the rich and be given vegetables from the summer crops. It just grew and evolved over time.
    Congrats on the drop too. Keep it up.
