Feeling weak but on way to recovery, remembering the nice time we had to a friend’s wedding last week! And countdown to Miami again, only 13 days!

3 Sep

Hello readers

I haven’t been the best this weekend and I am on the way to recovery now luckily, I got a stomach bug that gave me nausea and painful stomach cramps…and it stopped me eating for 3 days, not like me at all! I have started again to feel a bit better today, and I look forward to cook again instead than eat one spoon of rice or mash potatoes, or porridge even! (just pleased to have lost some weight without have to worry about diet!)

Last week we attended a friend’s wedding in Surrey, where we had a great time, and I just want to share with you all some pictures. I start to feel the pressure…I can’t wait to fly again to Miami in 13 days…England is treating me well right now that I can’t complain at all, gorgeous weather, still warm temperatures…but still…my heart is not here!!

The ups and downs of dieting…crazy cravings, food obsession or more? I blame my vacation in Miami!!

2 May

superstickies (1)

I have been over indulging for 12 days, I cannot bare the idea to deprive myself of a dirty stinking burger and fries If I want to, ok the bikini started to feel a bit tight but as I said to my friends, more responsible than me…Sod it the diet starts on Monday when I will be back…but when I got back and checked my weight on the scale I wanted to bang my head on the wall…2.5 kg more (5.5 pounds), damn me and my food obsession!!!!

No reason to panic, let’s just start to cut down on alcohol first of all : I have been drinking a lot but that is what you do in vacation, you don’t drink a bottle of Corona and think : Oh yes this is already 148 calories…oh yes let’s pop the champagne at 10.30 am, which must be 5pm somewhere…and here we are another 89 calories per glass….  But as my dad would say to my husband when we stay by the seaside in Italy when the new bottle of Prosecco comes up…Holiday!!! (Or Vacation! for Americans)

diet

Anyway I am not 20 years old anymore and my metabolism is not as fast anymore so I am trying to go back on track cooking lots of fish, chicken, cutting down portions of pasta, never been crazy for chocolate and what happened?

I suddenly find myself obsessed with “I need a piece of chocolate right now”! I find myself on my iPad checking new recipes most of the day, and because I haven’t drunk anything alcoholic since Saturday night I started to crave even that….tonight we are going out for dinner with friends in town and do you know what I can’t wait to have? A Bombay gin and tonic before dinner!!!!

gin and tonic

1kg (2.2 pounds) has already gone down ( probably water retention)  and I still have a lot to work on. Luckily I have a crazy dog here that needs walking and exercise so at least I have to get out and walk a lot with Coco and listen to me….I went back to the gym today…please orchestra go on….we need to celebrate this rare moment!!

And what about this weekend that we are going to visit friends in the Cotswolds? Fuck the diet let’s start again on Monday….actually on Tuesday because Monday is bank-holiday….thanks British calendar!!!

The late weekender edition: eating out, drinking out, cupcake-ing out…had a busy and nice time out!

21 May

I had a few busy days last week, that’s why I couldn’t update the blog before today, sorry for the delay I hope I haven’t disappointed my supporters.

After my looooooong afternoon nap on Wednesday I probably recovered from my minor operation to my lip, had the stitches on until this morning and if I knew how painful it was going to be to have them removed…I could have kept them! Always complaining don’t I? I thought, I wouldn’t be able too eat much in the next few days due to the stitches…as if!!! It’s Monday, it’s time to go to the gym and to lose some weight now…Friday night, dinner out, Saturday lunchtime, lunch out, Saturday night, dinner out, Sunday lunch…out…and to end my weekend in super sweetness….I have been stocking up cupcakes at my friend Sarah’s shop…every few months some doctors come along with a new diet…what about the cupcake’s diet? I will be so happy!

One cupcake a day…keeps the doctor away!

It was a great weekend, nice time with my husband, nice time with friends, couldn’t ask for anything better…but now let’s hit the gym!

Everywhere today has a different name, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, Mardi Gras…I just know it’s FAT TUESDAY and I’m on a fricking diet!

21 Feb

After 4 days of indulging and enjoying the time in Italy with my family and friends, yesterday I came back home to my husband, left a rainy Milan, got on the busiest Easyjet flight ever…does anybody work on a Monday afternoon instead than flying from Milan to London??

Came back to my gorgeous husband who bought for me a frog made of soap…I love frogs!!

Plus he cooked for me sausages and mash…just to go back to the British traditions, trouble is…I’m getting old, and despite my high metabolism I’m putting some weight on and I’m not happy. I’m probably 2 kilos more than my right weight…please do not slag me off I know it’s nothing but…I’m going to be in my bikini in 13 days lying down overlooking Downtown Miami so…I want my perfect weight back!

That’s why I just came back from the gym where I sweated my ass off on the crossramp…hopefully I’m going to lose weight not become a mini body builder with thick thighs … I just need to focus less on food and focus more on the gym and diet…without becoming like her!

BUT I am struggling today, it’s Martedi Grasso, or Fat Tuesday and I miss my Aunt Tina’s chiacchiere…and I miss dress up, and I miss the Carnival in Venice…OMG!!

Right…Anna just focus…and think about dinner time!!!
