Day Twelve – Feeling Ugh! Fighting That Diet Mentality I Learned Over Years Of Diet Attempts…

Another successful diet day. Almost another successful week. I am finding it easy to talk myself down off the ‘sugar’ edge. I just don’t want to be fat & unhealthy anymore. I never did before, but I needed to find the answer to my weight loss woes…

I was actually afraid to push myself, because I believed I would go through hours of depravation. Obviously I knew I wasn’t going to go through hours of depravation…but…When counting calories, that was fine, right up until the evening, when I had run out of calories. The calorie counting diet was doomed to fail from the off…

You know what I don’t like reading. The 100% PERFECT! Absolutely STRICT! RIGID! You MUST! eat X Y Z or you will be fat forever, of your own doing, because you eat ‘Sugar!’ & {Gasp!} saturated fat & {Blasphemy!} use sweetener. You fatty are going to obesity hell!…

OH! FECK OFF!!!

I like food. I want to eat food. I am not a metal object which just needs fuel to live…I can’t be arsed to work out 70g fat, 230g carb’s, 2000-calories, whatever amount of protein. I go by the principle of half vegetables, quarter protein, quarter carbs ‘Guesstimate’…Maybe if I done it perfectly, weighed, measured, wrote it down, I might lose 1 lb more & improve my Inflammation, by an extra 10%…

I am not making excuses. I am just being realistic…Of course my diet is not set in stone. I can make changes here, tweak a bit there. I need to get my mind on just eating a healthy balanced diet & doing a realistic amount of activity…That diet mentality still niggles at my brain…

Its like yesterday I did not do my 30 minutes Wii fit +…It niggled at my mind right up until I fell asleep around 4am this morning. It does not matter. I can do 30 minutes Wii fit +, today. I walked to Aldi’s & back. Which was around 30 minutes walking + shopping & I carried shopping for at least 10 minutes, so strength training…

The ‘PROPER!’ fitness people, who believe I should be doing X amount of exercise to lose weight, otherwise I won’t lose weight. It is people like that who set up us mere mortals to fail, because we have not got the interest to drive ourselves to exercise that way. You need to want to drive yourself into exercise so you have zero fat & a 6 pack…Dare I say. I don’t find defined muscles on a woman, in anyway sexy. I am more for the feminine curves…”Each to their own”

I have read some blogs in my ‘Fitness instructor, drill sergeant’ voice {In my head of course} I always think ‘I can’t really get anything from this, because it is more for the people with an interest in fitness’…I just want to go for a long hike & not feel like I’m going to pass out from the lack of oxygen getting to my brain. My breathing can be bad. The last time I measured my lung capacity it was 250, which is not good…I have never smoked, though my Dad did used to chain smoke, there was often a smog & I could feel the smoke in my throat…but I have also got lupus, I put my breathing down to the coating on my lung’s, which is one of the lupus symptoms…

One of my foxgloves…

I am doing so well…but I feel ‘Ugh!’ today, like I want to break myself out of a oppressive feeling of ‘I can’t be arsed!’…I am going to go out in my garden & do some moving stuff around. It is May 21st & my garden looks sparse this year. The foxgloves are beautiful, the plants I have got are beautiful, but they’re too spread out to appreciate them. I am going to move everything together & leave the rest of the garden to fill over time. The poppy seedlings are everywhere again this year, so I’m waiting for them to grow & bloom. Then I am going to ‘Cement!’…& just have pots. Lots of pots…

 

A few photo’s of my beautiful garden, last year. This year it looks sparse. Hopefully all my seedlings will grown & bloom by June, right through to October…

Day Ten – Wii Fit Free Cycling – Essex Walks…

“Yaaay!” Another successful diet day. I am doing so amazingly fabtabolously well. Last night I avoided picking. I did not have Mikado biscuits, so I had a can of ginger beer. It was bliss! I love ginger beer…

Though I had that slight guilty pleasure feeling…but…This ‘healthy eating’ diet is for the long haul, not just a quick fix. I used to have a ginger beer each day & chocolate & pick all day, late into the night & early hours. I have come so far in 10 days…

I was going to do shopping everyday, then I thought ‘Nah!’ I need so much to stock up. I will start walking. Yesterday I went for a 25 minutes walk, including through a woods we found, I love walking in the woods, it is so peaceful. My dream is to live close to a big woods, so I can take the dogs for early morning walks through the trees…Bliss! As blissful as ginger beer…

Then I done 37 minutes Wii fit + I got off the mountain ‘Woooo!’…I unlocked the free Wii cycling. So I can cycle all over for 30 minutes & try to beat my distance each day. I am looking forward to getting fit again. It feels so free to be able to power walk up hill, on a 2 hour walk & not be in pain, or out of breath…

I love the way being fit feels. I love the way being flexible feels. That reminds me. Horse riding, I used to own my own horse, I worked with horses. Being able to ride again would be fantastic. Though putting in the time to keep a horse properly. That takes a lot of time & commitment…& I can’t stand livery yards. Too many gossiping busy bodies not taking care of their own horse, because they’re too busy gossiping & bitching…

For now my fitness goals are to get fit enough to go hiking. There are set out walks around Essex, near where I live. I am going to get fit enough to go on those walks, some longer then others, they mark out the foot paths. Or maybe I could go on a country pub crawl. A glass of red wine in each pub…

Ohh! Yes! My other fitness goal, is to completely revamp my garden & redecorate my house. I need the energy, flexibility & stamina to just get on & finish my garden, with out having to stop every 10 minutes, because the pain in my hips & back gets too much…

I feel quite excited. I can imagine how it will feel, because I have felt it before & took it for granted. I will never take feeling healthy & fit, for granted again…

I would like to do this walk… ‘Essex Walks: Langford’ it is 4.5 miles…

Nuff said for now. I need more coffee…

Day Nine – Mii Getting A Wii Bit Fitter On My Wii Fit +

Whew! Got through a wine drinking evening, with no binging. I had 4 ryvita’s with olive oil margarine & ham {I need to get some butter, it is healthier} I drank a sugar free calypso strawberry spring water & water, then I went to bed; snored my head off & would not relinquish the cover…

Me & my friend had a good natter about the usual things we natter about…We talked about diets & how diets don’t work & how she watched her mum diet all her life & she was always fat, which is why my friend refuses to diet, my friend is not fat ‘I rest my case’. My Mum was the same. When she started exercising she found she changed shape & lost inches. She also followed the principles of slimming world, but she still had cancer from about the age of 50, which was diagnosed by chance when she went to have her belly button, so called abscess looked at by a specialist. Her doctor gave her 4 lots of antibiotics…WTF!

Anyway…I digress…

Exercise – Healthy eating, definitely the key to my achieving all my fat reducing goals. It is day 9. So 9 days with out drinking sugary drinks, or picking at sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, you name it, if it was sweet I was eating it. I have been eating milk chocolate Mikado biscuits, which are 11 calories per milk chocolate dipped stick, 0.5 syn’s {I am no longer counting syn’s} I want to get some pocky’s {Whatever they are called} They come in all flavours from banana to strawberry, blueberry & back again to the usual milk chocolate…

8-Flavours-of-Pocky

I make sure that I only get one box at a time, so there is no temptation, now my cupboard of ‘sugar’ coated impending doom has gone. I am gradually getting out of the habit of opening the cupboard every time I go out in the kitchen. I’m working on the fridge, but that has just got low fat yogurts for smoothies & sugar free calypso cups…

Shopping daily begins on Saturday morning. I have noticed how much fitter I am just by doing 30 minutes Wii fit + each day for a week. My hips are less stiff & painful when I do the calculator game. At the beginning of the week I could hardly move to add up the what ever they’re called…

wifitplus.02.lg

I am up to island view Wii fit cycling, which is my main exercise on Wii fit. I just need to learn my way around the Wii island. I get 20 flags, then I can’t find my way off the darn mountain. I done 47 minutes, because I got lost, it did not feel like 47 minutes brisk marching on the spot, though the sweat was pouring off me ‘Eeewww!’… I was so distracted by my Mii cycling around the island. It is a great way to exercise if you find exercise boring…Though I do like walking too…

I want to get the Wii U fit…but its been discontinued, because of the Nintendo switch. So I am looking to buy a second hand Wii U fit…It has got extra Wii fit exercises. I wish they could bring out more Wii fit like games…

AlMoSt ThE eNd Of A sUcCeSsFuL wEeK oNe On My WeIgHt LoSs JoUrNeY…

Almost the end of week one…What an amazing first week on my weight loss journey it has been. I decided to stop following a diet & start eating how I have been eating all week. No syn’s. Though I am not going to start eating lots of synful foods…

I started a new private blog, because I do want to blog a lot to keep myself motivated. I want to increase my exercise, doing 30 minutes + Wii fit & going shopping daily instead of weekly, but walking not driving…

That way I can plan my meals easier. I want to use the recipes in my slimming world recipe books. I want to following the principles of the slimming world diet, but the syn’s just become like following another diet. I roughly know the values of syn’s 20-calories per 1 syn…

fitness-intermittent-fasting-for-fat-loss1-2

Intermittent fasting is the main weight loss tool I am using ‘Forever!’…Eating from 13pm to 23pm I eat less. Also there are the health benefits. Cutting out the snacking during the day has reduced the high calorie, high fat, high sugar, therefore high carbs, in my diet. Stopping at 23pm I no longer pick all night when I can’t sleep…

Tomorrow is a whole new week. I am slightly dreading week one weigh in, but I am not about to give up. I am changing my diet to improve my health, weight loss will be an added bonus to improve my health & reduce any obesity health issues…

Good bye Week one of my weight loss journey. I have been enjoying the virtual scenery…but I want to start enjoying the real scenery. I just need to get fit & start walking again…

Exercising On An Empty Stomach – Intermittent Fasting – Insulin Insensitivity…

I done my 30 minutes Wii fit + earlier today. According to my Wii fit board I have lost 3 lbs. Apparently my Wii board is worried about me…Gawd! Some of the things Wii fit comes out with. Yes losing 1 lb each week is healthier…but I’m not exactly starving myself, just eating healthier & cutting out picking at high calorie, high fat, high sugar junk food & drinking high sugar fizzy drinks…

Obviously I can take no notice of the darn game, but some might take it to heart, if they have not learned otherwise. Eating & drinking junk food is unhealthy, losing 3 lbs in as many days is not. Though it is more likely water weight. I have literally cut my carbs a LOT! Just by not eating & drinking a ton of sugar…Going low carb you lose a lot of water, you lose lots of weight fast, but then once you start eating normally again…’Regain!’…

I have had a longer fast today/night as well…15.5 hours fasting instead of my planned 14 hour fast, so more time for my digestion to rest & my body to repair itself. Our body is amazing. We should respect ourselves a lot more then we do. I done my exercise on an empty stomach as well, so my body used stored fat as fuel instead of the sugar/glucose from my food…

Exercising On An Empty Stomach

Optimizing Hormones (Fast)

If the fact that Huge Jacked-man practiced intermittent fasting to gain muscle for his latest Wolverine movie isn’t convincing enough, consider this:

“An empty stomach triggers a cascade of hormonal changes throughout the body that are surprisingly conducive to both building muscle and burning fat.”

I definitely want to burn more fat & if I burn more fat through doing my 30 minutes exercise on an empty stomach. I am definitely tweaking that little routine…

The fasted state produces two significant effects:

1. Improved insulin sensitivity. Put very simply, the body releases insulin (a hormone) when we eat to help us absorb the nutrients from our food. The hormone then takes the sugars out of our bloodstream and directs them to the liver, muscles, and fat cells to be used as energy later on. The trouble is that eating too much and too often can make us more resistant to insulin’s effects, and while poor insulin sensitivity ups the risk of heart disease and cancer, it also makes it harder to lose body fat .

Hence my weight issues…I was snacking too much. The rest of my diet was fine. It was all the sugar I consumed all day which done the damage. I miss my snack cupboard, but now my habit of looking in the cupboard every time I go out in the kitchen has changed, I just see herb’s, spices, fry light, pasta, rice, etc…

Eating less frequently (i.e. fasting more regularly) is one way to help remedy the issue, because it results in the body releasing insulin less often, so we become more sensitive to it—and that makes it easier to lose fat, improves blood flow to muscles, and even curbs the impact of an unhealthy diet .

I am definitely sticking to intermittent fasting at least 14 hours fasting. Though you have good effects fasting for 12 hours. As I change my habits I am going to change my 10 hour eating window, so I start eating earlier & stop eating in the evening earlier. Except on red wine drinking days…

2. The second reason a good old-fashioned fast can promote muscle gain and fat loss comes down to growth hormone (GH), a magical elixir of a hormone that helps the body make new muscle tissue, burn fat, and improve bone quality, physical function, and longevity .

I want to build more muscle. Muscle uses more energy then fat & takes up less space, soooo! you drop inches. I am aiming to drop at least 16 inches from my waist/tummy…

Along with regular weight training and proper sleep, fasting is one of the best ways to increase the body’s GH: One study showed that 24 hours without food increases the male body’s GH production by 2,000 freakin’percent, and 1,300 percent in women. The effect ends when the fast does, which is a compelling reason to fast regularly in order to keep muscle-friendly hormones at their highest levels.

This is where intermittent fasting comes into it own…1300% ?

We can’t speak of muscle-friendly hormones without bringing up testosterone. Testosterone helps increase muscle mass and reduce body fat while also improving energy levels, boosting libido, and even combating depression and heart problems—in both men and women .

Ummm! Testosterone in women? I need to read up on this…Obviously women can’t build muscle like men can. I don’t want to build bulky muscles, I want muscle to give me strength & a more toned body…

Fasting alone may not have any effect on testosterone, but there is a surprisingly simple way to produce large amounts of both “T” and growth hormone at the same time, creating an optimal environment for building muscle and torching fat: Exercising while fasted .

Obviously I am not looking to build muscle like a body builder, I am looking to burn fat & drop from a 44″ waist to 28″ – 26″…When I lost weight before, through counting calories, walking & Wii fit +…I believe I stressed my body, so now I have unbalanced cortisol issues. I ended up with more belly fat…I was always a hour glass shape, now I’m more of a cooking apple on steroids…’Ugh!’…

Day Four Of My Weight Loss Journey- 2 lbs Weight Loss – Setting BIG! Goals…

 

2
15st1.75lb

 

“Wooo!” A successful day three…I decided to weigh myself, because my weight was staying the same on my Wii fit + board. I weigh 15st1 3/4 lbs. I lost around 2 lbs, give or take the odd 1/4 of a lb…

Losing 2 lb’s in three days is pretty good. I would have been happy with staying the same. I know how stubborn to let go of fat my body can be. If I had stayed the same I would not have given up or tweaked my diet to eat less or exercise more. No, I would have just kept going as I am. I am eating how I can eat for life…

I have made changes. HUGE! changes. I no longer pick at sweet junk food. I no longer drink sugary fizzy drinks. No longer eat late at night past 23pm. I eat less sauces, I had salad cream the other day, but I counted the syn’s. I am doing 30 minutes Will fit + each day. I am eating more fruit & veg. I am using fry light. So I’ve made some pretty big changes which I can keep doing forever…’Life style changes’…Forming new habits…

It is important I don’t eat too little. Your body needs calories to burn fat. If I eat to little my leptin levels will drop, my ghrelin levels will rise. Cutting out the sugar {Extreme sugar overload} I am doing my body a HUGE! favour when it comes to cancerous cells. Cut out sugar you starve the cancer cells, but…I can’t. Actually I won’t! cut out sugar all together, that is unrealistic if I want to maintain all my weight loss for life…

Yesterday I had 10 syn’s worth of Mikado milk chocolate biscuits…Today I have got 96 syn’s – 10 syn’s = 86 syn’s…I am adding syn’s on when I exercise. It is a matter of make or break when it comes to my making this weight loss journey work for me. I don’t think a one diet plan fits all. Though healthy eating is a no brainer, our body needs nutrients to function. I am no longer willing to live in pain, with no energy & absolutely no motivation…

I have found eating 14:10 {Intermittent fasting, 14 hours fating, 10 hours eating window} is ultra easy for me. I eat a big, filling, healthy lunch around 13pm, then after 30 minutes Wii fit + exercise I have a smoothie, it is usually about 17pm then. So I go 4 hours with out feeling that I want to eat, but after exercise I want to eat, but its close to dinner time, which is around 19pm. My smoothie consists of a free low fat yogurt, skimmed milk {From my 350ml healthy A choice allowance} a handful of frozen fruit, all blended together. I share my smoothie with my daughter, we have a 250ml glass each…

It is sweet. It is healthy. It is filling, satisfying & ‘Tasty’…No more fizzy drinks & sugary snacks, especially after doing all that exercise…Three days in, I no longer hurt as much when I exercise on my Wii fit +, but my hips are still stiff & hurt if I do the hula hoop {Actually it HURTS!} but…as I said…It is already getting easier by day three. Which means the healthy eating is working & I’m getting fitter. I am aiming to be as active as I used to be, before I was in pain. I used to walk on average 2.5 hours – 3 hours each day. I loved walking…

Maybe I should set myself a long term goal…The walk for life…Hmmm? I am going to look into that. I could encourage my daughters to walk with me…Nope its race for life, but I won’t be running, I know you can walk it as well…Before I sign up & commit myself, I will look into it. After all if its next month I won’t be fit enough. If I have a few months I can get fit enough…Or I could go really big…Walk the London to Brighton wossy, or is that cycling? I will look…

5k-940x314

I need more coffee & had better eat my lunch…

Day Three – Wii Fit + – 1 HR 30 MINS…

OMG! I am & sweaty ‘Eeewww!’ I did just do 30 minutes Wii fit +…I went advance on the cycling, birds eye balls eye &…Ummm! What is it called?

This one…

inline-4-3915-13_137453383

I have now done 1hr30mins…My goal is to do 30 minutes Wii Fit + every day for a week; 3hrs30mins by Wednesday…

People criticise the Wii fit + as being just a game, no exercise value…Tell that to my body when I’m trying to climb a virtual hill, on my virtual bike & find 22 virtual flag’s all over a virtual island…The yoga, muscle exercise, aerobic exercises & even the balance games all get my heart pumping & the sweat pouring. Maybe as I get fitter I will find it less challenging. I do have lupus, so I sweat more then usual…

I earned 150-calories {I count 5-calories per minute} Which = 7.5 syn’s…I now have 96 syn’s…{Flexi Syn’s & my creation ‘activity syn’s}

I have finished my post exercise smoothie, now I am going to have a shower…

Day Two Lunch Time – Wii Fit + Time – Smoothie Treat After Exercise…

I fasted for 12 hours from 23pm {Last night} to 13pm. Now I can eat in a 10 hour eating time. I had a banana, then the same pasta, 30g red leister cheese, small can of sweet corn, with mixed herbs & garlic pepper {free food & 1x healthy A choice} washed down with a calypso orange flavoured, sugar free spring water…

I want get into the routine of eating a banana before I eat my lunch. I also want to get into the happen of having a healthy filling lunch, to get me through to dinner time snack free…If I create new habits, which can form my new improved life style. I will lose all my excess fat & keep all my weight loss off forever…

I successfully lost 3st in as many months. Then I moved home; I lost focus. All the weight piled back on. Plus an extra 2 stone. Because I was dieting rather then changing my lifestyle. I have lost the extra 2 stone, slowly but surely, over the last 3 years. I decided to give up on dieting. It worked…

Now I want to speed up my weight loss, eat a healthy diet, do realistic exercise I can keep up & most important ‘change my lifestyle’ This diet is going to be forever & I don’t mind that. I don’t feel despair that I can’t do it. I feel confident that I can do it & I can do it really well…

I am using my 3 syn’s on the Spanish chicken cooking sauce. 60-calories worth. I am having onion, garlic, peppers, spinach {home grown} chicken, rice, then pouring the 3 syn’s /60-calories worth of Spanish chicken cooking sauce…

Chloe is just doing Wii fit +…Now its Jades turn. Which gives 2 people to compete against…I’m next…30 minutes Wii Fit +…then a smoothie made with low fat fruit yogurt {free} skimmed milk {part of 1x healthy A choice} & fruit {free} I use frozen fruit…

Coffee & Weight Loss – Rebounding The Lymphatic System & Weight Loss…

Drinking more black coffee; I can eat in 45 minutes time…

Like many people, you may want to drop a few pounds as quickly as possible. Some people suggest drinking coffee as a dietary aid, but the role of coffee and caffeine in weight loss plan is heavily debated. Caffeine may help you lose a bit of weight or even prevent weight gain, but it cannot help you lose significant weight or keep it off permanently; however, by drinking coffee sensibly and combining it with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, you can lose weight.

I enjoy my black coffee. Admittedly I used to eat something sweet each time I had coffee. One of the main reason’s behind my fatness. Also I used to eat all evening. Especially when I am in insomnia mode {Nothing to do with the coffee}

So! If stop picking with each coffee & stop eating at 23pm. I am cutting out a HUGE! chunk of my weight issues “Easy!”…

Reduce cravings with a cup of coffee. One of coffee’s positive attributes is its ability to suppress your appetite. Try drinking some coffee if you find yourself craving food or going for seconds at meals. This may reduce your cravings until a meal or to get you through a long meal

Each day I am going to exercise. I am aiming to do 30 minutes Wii fit +…Plus 5 minutes jogging on my mini trampoline

Rebounding is very low impact and puts almost no stress on your joints. That’s great if you have an ailment that prevents participation in high impact exercises, or if you’ve dropped out of an exercise routine before because of soreness.

I have no pain when I am jogging on my mini trampoline, which is great for me, because I get lots of pain in my hips…

A rebounder offers not just training benefits, but therapeutic as well.

It is quite fun. Especially when Jogging to music…

Advantages Of Rebounder Exercises

  1. Circulates more oxygen to tissues.

  2. Increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells.

  3. Aids lymphatic circulation.

  4. Encourages collateral circulation.

  5. Strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body.

  6. Allows the resting heart to beat less often.

  7. Regular use can lower elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

  8. Stimulates metabolism.

  9. Promotes body growth and repair.

  10. Expands the body’s capacity for fuel storage and endurance.

  11. Improves coordination through the transmission of nerve impulses and responsiveness of the muscle fibres.

  12. Offers relief from neck and back pain or headaches caused by lack of exercise. [4]

  13. Enhances digestion and elimination processes.

  14. Supports better and easier relaxation and sleep.

  15. Results in a better mental performance.

  16. Helps reduce the likelihood of obesity.

I wonder if I can do my Wii fit + Jogging on my mini trampoline…Hmmm? Why not. It would be less impact on my hips & knees, though I’d have to do a move around, but once I go onto more advanced Wii fit + jogging, it will be worth the extra effort…

All About the Lymphatic System

My Mum died from liver, bowl, cancer in her lymph glands. They never found the primary cancer, those were secondary cancer…{I am no expert} My Mum had cancer for 10-15 years, before they diagnosed her. She would have been 50+ when the cancer started. I am 48 years old. I share my Mum’s genes. I am SO! DETERMINED! to lose all my excess fat & improve my health…

Why would I want to give up on my diet? I would have to have a death wish. How to commit suicide, slowly & painfully “Keep on eating myself to death”…”Put my kids through losing their Mum”…”Put my grand daughter through losing her Nana”…”Put my husband through losing his wife”…Harsh & morbid I know, but that is what it comes down to, for the sake of cutting down on sugary junk & eating healthy foods…

{Takes a deep breath}

Yesterday. After I done 30 minutes Wii fit + & had a shower. I ACHED! so much, I could hardly concentrate on cooking my dinner…but I forced myself to focus…Cook veg! Cook the fish! NO! salad cream…FOCUS!…Tonight I will be ready for it & exercise earlier, shower earlier, then sit down & relax before cooking dinner…I realised I need to focus when cooking/making my meals. No mindless ‘Just grab!’ something convenient. Or I ache, I am going to treat myself…

I love homemade chips. They are free {Made using fry light}…but I love them with salad cream. I am going to buy light salad cream, or mayonnaise & count the syn value. Which is…

I read this on net Mums

They’ll all be 1 syn per 20 calories as no free food.

You can nearly always find out the calories in anything by going to a supermarket site and checking the NV’s :

Hellmans light = 297 cal/100g so 15 syns per 100g.

Heinz Light = 236 cal/100g so 12 syns per 100g.

Lunch time…I am off out side to cut some of my home grown perpetual spinach…Another post ‘Home grown veg’…

New Mii – Wii Fit…

I done 30 minutes Wii fit…Oowww! I ache. My hips & back are aching, but I’m not in pain. Though give me a few days of exercise, I may well be in some pain. I will get fitter…As I lose weight, I will be in less pain…

I want to upgrade to the Wii U…but I need to save. Though it has only got a few more fitness games…

I am off to cook my dinner…I am having inspirations salmon, homemade wedges, using fry light & mixed veg…

I’m also drinking tonight…
