Day 4 - First time, to say no to french pastries

Hi yáll!
How is it going with the diet? Any carb abstinence syndrome yet? Well, I have mine today but I have resisted so far. I should reward myself if I pull through which I will, I am determined. I really want pizza, for the sake of just having pizza, coz it´s forbidden, therefore I will not give in. Just ate some yoghurt and you know what, the cravings disappeared, just like that...

Monica and I

Anyway, I went to town to see a friend Monica , it was so much fun... I got a lovely autumn present from her, a jersey it was so lovely. So typical as we went through town we passed through an international food festival, how do you resist French pastries??? HOW? ??? Nightmare to the diet no pastries please, I just walked right across did not turn back. That was true temptation...but still pulled through.
Day 4- STILL NO CARBS... as we walked on by we see a crew of photographers and a model just outside The GUCCI Store and she was so thin and it inspired me even some more not to eat carbs. Check her out and the crew...


Here is today´s menu!
Breakfast: Yogurt with fruit and alfa alfa seeds
Lunch: A Chicken salad
Snack: Yogurt with plums
Dinner:Cauliflower Gratin form last night with some meatballs
