Big Daddy...

ok. ok. I didn't succumb to the chinese blow out buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut I did totally forget it was Father's day today which meant going out for lunch. And this big whopper was what we had.
We British do like to be beside the sea. And since it was quite warm today thats what Dad wanted. So off went up the coast to THE BEST PROPER BRITISH FISH AND CHIP PLACE EVER. Oh yes.

This size fish is the medium. THE MEDIUM. Don't worry I did not eat the entire thing. Just under half. And I left most of those chips! I got half way to the fish and I would have vomited if I eaten any more. Seriously delicious but too frickin' much. The place is so popular we had to wait two hours to get a table and so didn't eat til around 2.30pm.

It is now almost 9pm and I am not even a teeny weeny bit hungry. This is all I've eaten today. lol @ 'all'. It was quite a lot. But the batter was heavenly and the fresh is caught fresh every day!!!! In trying to balance it out I've been drinking water like it's no body's business. (and its working, already flushing my system out) and I did both my sports active 30 day workout and a 40 minute work out one on there too. I stink. I really do lol.

Tomorrow the gym and an appointment with the nurse...

I think you did great :) I'm a sucker for a good fish n chips myself, but it never looks that good on my side of the pond.

I admire your control.

That looks totally awesome! Food porn is great .... especially while I'm eating something healthy [yogurt & berries]

Good self control to stop eating. When it tastes really good sometimes I just eat myself sick. And a total bravo on leaving the fries (or you call them chips? or crisps? anyway, the fried, salty, potatoey goodness).

Besides, fish is good for your heart and brain. And when the water kicks in the same day? That helps alot.

Keep up the good work!

Oooh I can practically taste that photo!

I totally forgot it was father's day in blighty, if only it were the same day the world around. Thankfully by the time I was reminded, sitting at my desk Monday morning, it was still before midnight back home and I could ring my poor old tired dad. Yay for time differences, and yummy fish suppers (v. v. jealous)
