So I always find that being away from home always poses a couple more challenges with sticking to a Primal routine, it can still be done just maybe a little more laid back than I am when at home, hence the indulgence in Mum’s amazing Tiramisu. This week hasn’t been great on the weight loss front and after last week’s weigh in using Mum’s scales I found when I weighed at home on the same day they were out by about 200-300gms lighter, no biggie. So I haven’t lost any this week and in fact probably put on a little compared with last Friday’s weigh in although I am pre-menstrual and the scales always seem a bit higher at that time of the month and I did have two helpings of desert which may have had something to do with it 😉 Has been a great week though and I’m not stressed about it, just a minor bump, back in routine now! Enjoy the food journal, it was a yummy week of mostly primal food 😉
