    Nomsie, you're gorgeous! Good on you for making the change from stuffing your gob to exercising to feel better. That's what we need to do, find healthier outlets for our emotions. It's a vicious cycle isn't it, eat crap, feel crap, eat some more crap...

    So I've woken up this morning and I'm feeling tireder that when I went to bed! Because I've taken the day off work I actually stayed in bed til 8am (considered a royal sleep in in this house hold, although I wasn't really sleeping as my back up dancers were in and out all morning!) It didn't help that DP is away for a few days- I never sleep as well when he is not around.

    I am yet to put myself through some hot latino paces, but I'm just waiting to make a phone call and then I'll get cracking.

    I'm also planning on doing my little cleaning workout today with the iPod earbuds shoved firmly in my ears and my hips wiggling as much as my belly jiggles

    Haha- err no! AS soon as my house is cleaned all I have to do is turn my back and all of a sudden it's a mess again! So far in the past few days I've cleaned Saturday, Monday and now today.. and it's horrific!!

    Just think of all the extra calories you're burning, though!

    Just a quick note to anyone reading- don't bother with the WW chocolate mousse sachet- it tastes like artificial sugar (surprise, surpise) in a far, far too sweet way! *shudders*

    I thought to beat my chocolate cravings, I should just have some! I remembered I'd had this in my pantry for a while so decided to give it a whirl.

    Well, it sure beat my cravings. I think chocolate mousse is officially off my 'top 10 things I would shank my diet for' list




    ... incidentally, lamb shanks would be on that list.

    in the past when i have been good and disciplined i found that two squares of quality dark chocolate was all i needed to beat off a craving. Not too many calories and lots of antioxidant benefits. The tricky part is sticking to just the 2 squares, lol

    Yeah, I have been unimpressed with some of those very synthetic tasting alternatives. I agree with Purple Sparkles, small but good quality is the way to go. I think total deprivation is just going to set me up for failure.

    yup - that works for me too .. I buy the lindt one (because its sooooo thin ) and I break off a row ... I figure because its soo think .. a row is = to two squares of the other dark chocolates..

    you make me laugh Noms .. ahh the irony of having the word eat in the background of a photo for this purpose .. (if it helps, I eat when I'm happy, stressed, sad, angry, tired, frustrated .. well .. I eat when I'm awake - so grazing on food during the day - and night - is a BIG issue for me too )

    Glad I'm not the only one!

    Haha- I'm going away this weekend... would it be acceptable to walk around with a block of dark chocolate for all it's antioxidant benefits!?
