    Haha I should've known that'd be your suggestion! It definitely sounds like fun but trust me, you wouldn't want me on your team I've been to a touring version of that Titanic exhibit in Melbourne, had a good time but sadly I didn't survive. I remember a few years ago Gunter von Hagens had a TV show which I used to enjoy, but I can imagine it would be a very different experience up close and personal! Our evenings are already mostly booked up with shows so thanks for sharing some daytime ideas!

    That's as good a reason to start running as any! I love that childlike enjoyment of going fast, glad you had fun

    Man, there must be something in the air, I've had some self-sabotage too lately. But every day is a checkpoint and a chance to have another go. Good on you for keeping positive and still getting in a run!

    Just added the Natural History Museum to the list, I hear they have T-rexes!! Muir Woods looks gorgeous, but sadly I don't think we'll make it out there. We're going in September so there should be some lovely autumn colours starting to come through. I'm looking forward to the food. I think I heard San Francisco is also good for seafood, which Fiancé says he's willing to try. Thanks for the recs!

    We're not really into nightlife stuff either but otherwise all of the above. Won't be driving because I don't trust myself not to accidentally end up on the wrong side of the road We've already booked tours of Yosemite and the Grand Canyon, Penn & Teller and Cirque du Soleil in Vegas, and days at Universal and Disney in LA. Planning to also check out Alcatraz and La Brea tar pits, so I think that covers most of the obvious touristy things to do but I'm always open to suggestions!

    Guys, I got Hamilton tickets!! Super stoked When we booked the honeymoon I was disappointed to see we'd miss out on the San Francisco run by just a few days, but on a whim today I checked again and they've added extra shows! The show isn't coming to Australia for another two years (they only just announced it today) so I'm feeling very lucky. By the way, if anyone here has suggestions for some fun things to do in San Francisco, Vegas or LA, I'm all ears

    Yep I definitely found that today, because I was uncommonly busy at work, I didn't even think about grabbing anything beyond lunch. Hard to keep myself occupied these days though so the boredom cravings have been strong. I try to use my laziness to my advantage when I'm at home. I'll leave the box of chocolates in the fridge and just take two with me to the couch... then hopefully by the time I want more I'll be too comfy to want to get up

    Just popping in to say your idea for stuffed peppers sounds delicious! I guess to save time you could chop the peppers in half and have it more like a shallow boat covered in stuffing. Also, knees are the worst, but it sounds like you've got a good plan to show yours who's boss!

    It's been a struggle, not gonna lie. I don't miss breakfast all that much, but undoing the habit of a nightly bowl of ice cream for dessert has been a long time coming. Now I'm usually happy without unless it's a special occasion or something. So far it seems I'm getting peckish in the afternoons at work ("Just need a boost of sugar to see me through the last hour") or when I get home. The latter I think is more out of habit than hunger. There's always a box of chocolate biscuits on the kitchen counter, and usually a bowl of M&Ms or something in the fridge and some Kettle chips in the cupboard. And this is usually where the gurus go, "Purge your house of this evil!" But I don't want to deprive myself completely; I just want to get the hang of reasonable portion control.

    I love the stuff, but I managed to survive this morning without giving in. Luckily nobody noticed that I didn't have anything, or if they did they didn't mention it. Yeah my diet is basically whatever I want, but try not to go overboard with sugar and not so much deep-fried food. I just can't stand the thought of calorie counting, and as much as I like the idea of keto, I like pasta and rice more. Maybe one day I'll have a crack at it, but for now I'm focusing on cutting down on the plain ol' junk food. I was met with something unexpected just now. A coworker came by my desk, said "Thanks for sharing your baking with us" and gave me this delicious dessert. I think it's some kind of berry mousse parfait (it has layers, after all) from the fancy public café upstairs. I never go there because, well, it's full of the public and I don't like to battle a horde of tourists for a hot chocolate. You can bet I ate the thing and thanked her heaps for it, but I've decided that's the last snack I'm having today. That said, it's only 4pm, but I'll see how I go.

    Oh no, speaking of morning temptation, I forgot it was Tuesday Cheeseday! Every other week at work we have a cheese platter and a half hour to just unwind a bit. I'm going to go into the tea room and socialise but I'm going to try to resist the goodies on the table. There should be enough leftovers for me to have some after lunch when it's IF compliant. Wish me luck!

    Bean Sidhe Vs Chaos – Pretends To Act Like I Know What I Am Doing

    Oh man, that only ever happens at the least opportune moment! Whenever that happens I try to remind myself "It's not the clothes that are bad; your mood is bad because you're stressed." I'm sure you'll fit in just fine, the dragon's a good luck charm! You're gonna crush it

    Looks like a busy but fun couple of weeks! Travelling always makes it tricky to keep up a routine but you've got a good plan, good luck

    Yikes, stay safe! Shame you had to go all that way to find out. Does that mean you get more time for vacuuming today?

    It's a good method! I've managed to mostly cut out snacking before and after my eight-hour window, unless there's a morning tea or late-night movie to tempt me. That's just something else to work on. This week I'm making a note of what I'm snacking on and when. Thinking I might try something like a dedicated snacking hour within my eating window, and any other time snacks are out of bounds.
