Good weekend but rubbish bank holiday...

Well, the title says it all really.  I had a good weekend that consisted of going to a wedding on Saturday night and eating and drink A LOT.  Yesterday I was so hungover that I struggled with food too so when I got on the scales for WI this morning I'd gained 2lbs on last week.  Talk about gutted!  However, as I ate quite late last night I'm gonna weigh myself again tomorrow morning to see if I get the same result.  It put me in a stinker of a mood today though.  Just felt really annoyed that I can put on so easily even when I've saved points and everything.  Have had a good day today points-wise and have earned 6 activity points too so feeling back on track now.  I do, however, have a meal out tomorrow night so going to try and save points all week to make up for what I'll no doubt go over tomorrow. 

I went for a swim last week and did 100 widths of the pool (equivalent to 40 lengths of a 25m pool).  I felt great whilst I was swimming but then when I got out and was trying to get changed I had a sudden dip in blood sugars and I could hardly stand up.  I'd only had 6 points all day before going and I think I over did the exercise causing me to go weak and light-headed.  It took me ages to get my clothes on and I was just desperate for food.  When I managed to get out of the changing rooms I went straight to the vending machine and bought a snickers.  I shoved it straight down my gob and I could feel my sugar levels come up immediately!  Don't think I'd have been able to make my way home without that snickers!!  So, the moral of the story is not to do 100 widths of the pool having had a bad tummy and hardly any food!  The rest of the week was really good for me food-wise but I did no exercise at all.  I'm on half-term this week and I'm hoping to up my activity a bit.  Even hoping to get back on my bike again!!
