Happy Christmas Eve - only one more sleep until Christmas! However despite the date I didn’t give myself a free pass to slack off today and for that I’m proud. I pushed even harder with the 30ds and was able to complete most of Natalie’s moves even in the last stregnth circuit which pretty much killed me. I weighed my feet down and followed Anita during the minute of situps and though it was a struggle I didn’t stop so officially did better than yesterday!

Dinner was a Weight Watcher’s cottage pie which in total contained 342 calories although I was smart and ate less than half therefore probably consumed less than my estimated 200 calories for the meal. As I sat down to eat, my mum took one look at my plate, sighed deeply and remarked on how “I can’t wait until you start eating properly again”. Eating properly? This is coming from the woman who guzzles cake, chocolate and at least one kitkat on a daily basis. I don’t know who exactly is eating properly here but it certainly isn’t her! Agreed, my portion sizes are marginally smaller but I think my stomach has fully adapted to the change and I actually felt stuffed after eating that bowl of soup for lunch, which, might I add, contained way too many calories. Frankly it makes me naseous just typing up that awful “92″ but it was the lowest calorie meal we had in the house and my mum was watching so I just had to suck it up (literally!).

I baked some more cupcakes for my family today and can proudly say that I wasn’t tempted in the slightest to sample even a crumb. I guess it’s true what they say, sugar cravings do disappear over time. Unfortunately, the icing my mum brought which promised to cover 10 cupcakes was only enough for six. On closer inspection, that’s because I was using muffin cases instead of cupcake cases so the cakes ended up being larger. However the icing ran out just as I was getting the hang of piping it and so I only succeeded in making two pretty cupcakes. I spread some chocolate frosting over the remainder of the cakes and though the end result was ugly it will probably please my brother who is a major chocoholic!

Here’s a picture of the only cupcake I’m not slightly ashamed to show you (yes, I’m a perfectionist - so bite me!):
