donuts and buttons

I survived the food stalls.

They gave it their best shot and sang their best siren songs. At one point the lure of a freshly baked cookies & cream donut even had me standing in a queue, but I was mercifully saved by a well-timed “out of cookies & cream” sign going up - plain old fashioned jam donuts just weren’t worth breaking a healthy mojo for.

I did have a fantastic pizza though, a lovely fresh thin stonebaked base with roasted veg (zucchini, sweet potato, broccoli, cauliflower... the works) and just the right size - not too big, not too small. Not at all bad for an events van, you really didn't want to see the state of poor hubby's chicken schnitzel (not particularly appetizing to look at or eat by all accounts).

It was a really great day overall – even better for a Brit like me – Go Button Go!! I’ll hold on to my nationality with my support, if not my voice: despite 31 years in England and Scotland, already I’ve had Aussies tell me I’ve no discernible accent after being here for only 5 years [sigh].

We couldn’t get ourselves much of a view but the noise was phenomenal and just being there and getting to walk on the track and see pit lane afterwards made it all worthwhile.

In food and exercise news I’ve been pretty pleased with progress. Monday morning I scored myself another personal gym class, who knows how long that situation can last but I’ll not ask and not rock the boat, it’s one heck of a workout. Tuesday night I had a drink with a friend over from Perth for the weekend. It was only the second (!) time I’ve had alcohol since getting my eating in order again. I counted it into my daily allowance and didn’t drunkenly pig out afterwards. A BIG tick for me. And with such a long abstinence came the bonus that I’ve become a very cheap date. I only had a couple of glasses of wine and I was totally tipsy. hehe giggle hic.

Today is weigh-in day for me, I'm going straight to photo class from work so I'll be along after that to check in. And with all this hiatus of activity I'm totally behind on my blogs *again*, sorry all. I hope every one is having a great week, I'll be over soon to catch up on all your news.
