    The Good
    No cake yesterday, had fruit salad while visitors scoffed choccie biccies
    Our renovations are going great, the tiler is doing an amazing job

    Exercise
    Had my hand weights and 30 day shred DVD home with me to do the last day of level 2 but nowhere in the house was suitable with all the furniture moved upstairs as whole ground floor is being re-tiled. The rest day actually did me good though. Back to it tomorrow.

    The Bad
    No kitchen, mad busy all day, food choices made were abysmal

    The Ugly
    ....

    Food Log
    brunch – 2 slices whole grain with half a banana, mandarin
    dinner – cheesey garlic bread, salmon, a few chips, carrots and turnip, hot choc fudge cake with small scoop vanilla ice cream (first chocolate since beginning of June but the cake in this restaurant is divine and we hadn't been there in over a year and most likely won't be back again for a while, tasted totally delish!)
    1% milk in tea

    Tomorrow is a new day!
    no kitchen due to renovations and travelling again today

    Pandacub, thanks for checking in on me. I think level 3 might do me in, lol. Find it tough going on my shoulders especially! Had a gorgeous chicken casserole for tea so hope that will keep me from picking at badness later. Will have some fruit if I reeeeeaaaallllllly need it.
