Saturday 6 December 2008

OK so today I am going to a party and I'm planning to overeat. Is it excusable if it's planned? I hope so.

I started this morning with:

The rest of the salami and jarlsberg from yesterday (it was included in yesterday's counts)

Some heavy cream by the spoon - 1.8g

3 eggs fried in butter - 1.5g

And I have some cauliflower boiling right now for me to make it into cauliflower mash - I add butter and sour cream to this then mash. I bought a punnet of raspberries today because it was only $5 a punnet!! But I can never stop at just a few so I know I'm going to have the whole thing. On the good side, they're only even that cheap once or twice a year.

I've bought some citrus vodka and pepsi max to drink tonight and bought some pork crackles to put in the serving bowls as I know the host wont have anything snack-y otherwise.

I'm in two minds about whether or not to take my own advice or be a coward hahahaha. Once tonight is over... do I REALLY want to post what I ate? It's going to be terrible, I know it.

Every now and then I'll have a day or two like this. Not too often. It's craving TOM for me right now which is why I had that protein bar the day before yesterday.

So the real question is, should I allow it? Or should I not?

Sybil, I haven't done the Slow Burn Method before - haven't even heard of it! It sounds good though. I always try to do all my reps slowly :)

So that makes two of us Aussies round these parts! ;) I'll be up in NSW (Sydney) in Feb actually. Sad I'll miss the Monet show though. You closer to the Vic border?

Oh and those 'big buff boys' hehehe. They don't worry me, they use "help" to get them where they are I think.

Vadim, I can suggest all my favourite Aussie movies but they might not all be the genre you like (I tend to like the movies that are a little off-beat). This link has a huge list of Aussie movies, but it's by no means comprehensive.

WebFlicks Australia

Sorry, you'll then need to scroll down to 'Australian'. I can't get a direct link.

My favourites, off the top of my head, are things like The Castle, Garage Days, Strictly Ballroom, Heavenly Creatures (mix of Aus and NZ), Dark City (mix of USA and Aus) with Jennifer Connelly. I've never seen Proof, so I have it on my hire list :) Oh and Dirty Deeds! That's a great movie too - and based on a true story. Has John Goodman (from Roseanne) in it if you want to check it out. That might get you a bit used to the accent before you watch a movie which is purely Australian sounding. Also on TV they often tend to exaggerate the accents. When I was in England people thought I was "posh" but really Neighbours' actors go to classes to speak more broadly. Romper Stomper is an absolute classic.

I'm still looking through the list on the link I sent you ... I haven't seen or heard of most of these movies. But Bliss is another good one. Probably as old as your fav Croc Dundee though, but definitely worth the watch. Bit psychological, and very subtle. Boytown is a shocking movie, don't waste any time on it hehehe. I put The Club in the same bag as Bliss in subtlty (sp?). The Craic is good for a nothing movie - I like nothing movies sometimes hehehe.

The Dish is another good one. I think it's based on a true story as well. Gallipoli is a good movie. With Mel Gibson - before he went bonkers.

(I'm only up to G in the movie list, more of the alphabet tomorrow)   :)

But i doubt she can lift more than me. i dont think any woman can, unless she is he or heshe or whatever these guysn are, sorry no offence to anybody. But i do lift qite heavy too and my numbers are quite good!
So, go on Vadim, share your numbers and I'll use them as a goal to work towards :)


  1. Hey Erika,
    Well, how did the night go? I hope you had a great time.
    As far as listing what you ate, I think you should. Remember we are here to show what a LCer eats, good or bad. No one can be perfect 100% of the time. So, I'm waiting... What goodies did you get into? LOL

  2. Erika, now i am having second thoughts about what i said about my weight lifting abilities. i am not that strong by any stretch of imagination but i can hold my own. Ok, ready thses are my embarassing numbers;; My best exercise strenght wise is bench press my max is 295 ponds, dont know in kilos, usually i lift 220 to 280! not impressive, but I am better then average, plus i am old or am i for bodybilding? I know i do much bettert then most guys of my age. i am 36 by the way! Thanks for movies!

  3. Does you absence indicate a hangover? ;)

    I agree with NewVision. I think you should post your party treats.

    Come on now, you can't tease us by saying you're going to a party and you're planning on splurging and then just leave us hanging! It's just not right! :)

    Fess up, sister!
