    good day.

    Mornings are hard here, crazy and always a rish, even if we aren't going anywhere, mornigs are hurried! The boys and their clothes are an issue and so getting dressed is stressful. Breakfast gets forgotten often by me, always thinking I will make something later I too often forget and then get so hungry that anything quick will do....big mistake as something quick almost always means something stodhy, fattening and depressing. I notice that certain foods affect how I feel in a huge way. Sugar makes me irritable, too much wheat ( bread/ cakes/ biscuits) make me depressed. typically the things I like most make me feel the worst! So, today I bought a supply of slimfast so that when things are crazy and hurried I can drink one and at least know I'll be OK until lunch.
    Breakfast today was a slimfast on the run to a morning out together.
    Lunch was ...what was lunch?? Oh I remember, on the way home we went to the pub, Jordan's work actually and had a bacon baguette and salad.
    The kids played in the playroom and I had a lovely chat with H who was terribly interested in everything I had to say. I burbled on until I noticed that he had wires in his ears....the ipod came to lunch!!
    Dinner, yum, chicken breasts cooked with garlic, crushed chilli, black pepper in some low fat condensed mushroom soup, extra mushrooms and served with rice. I am actually sticking to the guideline that a portion of carbs should be the size of your fist, looks like a teeny serving when you first start but really, it IS enough.

    Great tip ( works for me anyway) Jelly babies. They are so sweet that if you really need a sugar hit they work fast. I can never EVER eat more than 6 before I feel sick. I haven't sunk the depths where I have looked for or even wondered how many calories are in 6 jelly babies, I simply cannot believe that such a treat would be anything to make Mr Weightwatcher, Mrs Slimming world or Jenny Craig have a breakdown.
    I have walked past little hoards of choclate feasts that the boys have obviously decided are to be avoided at all costs, some delicious galaxy thingumies with biscuit and gogeous dribbly stuff in the middle. Funny isn't it, we can buy treats and hide them, lock them away even and they disappear, Sophie can sniff chocolate out from a distance of 300 yards......but wouldn't you know it? These blasted things are here, there and everywhere and NO-ONE IS TOUCHING THEM!!
    I didn't get weighed today as the doctors are closed for the bank holiday, so next monday it is. I hope that by then it will be doubly impressive and encouraging...also the day to see if I get the prescription for the fat busting, bowel quivering medicine!

    I agree Helen. You are doing great. :)

    I think we know what we should eat, it's just the getting there mentally. And you sound like you are there.
