The thought of a night out in London with friends set off alarm bells in the calorie-counting part of my brain. With each Gin and Tonic weighing in at around 100 calories each I knew Saturday would not be good for my diet. As such I told myself that after that after lunch I would have a temporary diet break. There was no point panicking all evening about it, so after my slim fast I thought I would let the proverbial chips fall where they may.

Upon arrival at Lots of beers and Gin and tonic’s later I was happily drunk and looking forward to getting one of my food fantasies; a kebab, on the way home.

As it turns out I was early enough to get the earlier train but only if I hurried. I tried to queue at the pasty shop for something but the couple ahead of me took too long and I had to run… Foiled!

As it turns out I was early enough to seize the opportunity and jump in a cab home. So despite having both a slim fast AND a bucket of Chinese food for lunch I begrudgingly missed dinner.

I had previously attributed this to using biological washing powder and despite changing it, we were still in the cross over phase. What I was about to find out, however was very different…
