Finally my husband cleared out the vagueness about "When can I take a few days off work" and we have dates for Amsterdam!!!!
February 3 we leave at 5.45 a.m. (cruel innit) and we return on the 8th, early in the afternoon :)))))
I am thrilled! I spend all my time thinking about the shops I know too well from last year, the museums I will again visit, the tulips I will be buying every day for our hotel room, the coffee shops, falafel, chocolate with red pepper from Australian Home Chocolates, and boots. Mostly, I think about boots!!!!
See, last year when we were there, I saw so many pairs of boots I could kill for and none of them would fit. Boots costing 300 euros and being on 70% or even 80% sale! And I could not buy them :(
So last night, while we were at our friends' house, discussing Amsterdam and all about our shopping, I took a decision. I need to loose as much weight as I can before going to Amsterdam. So with our friends, who want to loose weight too, we made an eating plan for the next 3 weeks and this weekend too:
Salads and fruits
Tonight it will be a mixed grill
Tomorrow will be roasted duck
Sunday will be grilled fish and other sea food
Then on Monday we are starting the evil 3 week detox. It's rough and it needs lotsa discipline the first few days, then it takes its toll and is ok.
boiled apple with half a yogurt
Boiled basmati rice with boiled carrots, brocolli, onions and zucchinis
Baked veggies with the remaining half of the yogurt
Boiled apple with 3 prunes.
This will result in loosing at least 4 kilos (at least this is what happened last year) and this will take me to Amsterdam in 88 kilos, which will be 21 kilos less than I was last year, almost the same period (we went there at february 26).
Gimme good comments of support please! I am determined...but as I said before, I need a little help from my firends :)
(cos last night, while making these plans, the 4 of us managed to eat a bowl full of brazil nuts!)
