OMG! Looks like I got paid a visit by the Whoosh Fairy last night!  Aaaand we’re finally out of the 99s, hurrah! PLUS: I’m officially down 30 pounds. Yi-yeah!

It occurred to me last night, that I’ve not been getting a good night’s sleep for the past week – pretty much since my weight loss started to stagnate.  I’ve been in bed after midnight every night, and haven’t been waking up easily in the mornings. I’m sure I read somewhere that there’s a correlation (though not neccessarily causation) between obesity and getting a good night’s sleep.

So last night, I decided to get myself to bed good and early – I was in bed by 10.30, read for 20 mins, then put my head down and slept through till 7.30am.  And was rewarded with a 0.7kg drop in the morning.  Of course, this could have had something to do with the fact that I was hyper-diligent with the diet yesterday, and my whoosh came.

This evening, however, was a transgressionary evening.  The festival is on in Edinburgh, which requires some celebration at least.  I went with J and a friend to the Speigeltent, where we danced the night away to faaaahbulous swing music, and I may have drunk about 7 gin and tonics.  Diet tonic though.  Plus, gin has no carbs. That’s what I keep telling myself. And I offset the calories with all the dancing.

Yep. Uh-huh. 😉

Bedtime now, I fear. My brain is somewhat affected by the G&Ts, but I shan’t let it keep me from my obligatory blogging.

Oooh, last thing – tomorrow I’m rewarding my 30lbs loss with a new haircut from a really good hairdresser here in Edinburgh. Picture Joan from Mad Men – that’s the look I’m going for.  If you’re all very nice to me, I might even reward you with pics – including some before/after pics of me now, and me 30lbs ago… 😉 Tomorrow night is party night for a friend’s 30th, and the theme is corsets and boas. I think it’s corset time!! 🙂
