I have been eating all sorts and anything on the basis of being v stressed. It’s like I don’t want to have to think about what I am eating it all, therefore I haven’t. I have not given any thought to the Slimming World Plan, or any healthy eating whatsoever.
I know I have gained some weight as trousers are tighter.
I feel sluggish and bloated.
Should I give my Slimming World class a miss tomorrow night?
I will go. I will cringe about my weight gain but I will get motivated by the class consultant Julie and the rest of the class. I will not give up. I know I’m tired, I’m stressed, I’m weary and do feel down, but, am sure things will improve, I hope they improve.
Have started painting the kitchen white. Why? Because I want to. Today I went round to a lovely friends house (with 2 other friends), to do some cleaning. Good exercise! And great to switch off and chat to friends Sarah, Collete and Dave.
Planning on mowing the back garden tomorrow at some point. All exercise is good, now I just need to get the food back on track.
Still stressed but not as stressed. Had a lovely lunch out today with a friend (Elaine).I had a ham, cheese sandwich with homemade coleslaw. It was very relaxing, lovely and sunny out, a nice afternoon.
This morning J (my 23 yr old son) and I took R (my 16 yr old daughter), to her school for an English exam. J and I went to the local cafe for an hour or so then walked to shops then collected R THEN went back to cafe to get R and J lunch, I just had a cup of tea. It is so very rare that we get R out, that taking her to lunch (even when struggling with money) is a normal and nice thing to do. It’s lovely to see her smiling and chatting. She seemed quite positive about how her exam had gone.
I did fall asleep late afternoon. Got up Arghgh 10pm. Couldn’t be bothered eating so just had Muller light yogurt and cup of tea. I have my diabetic clinic in the morning. J is off to Uni for an exam and R has a science exam and is being picked up by the school.
Tomorrow evening I am going to a barbque arranged by work at a local cricket club. Fairly easy to follow Slimming World plan at a barbecue and I won’t be drinking as don’t drink alcohol these days.
I spray painted some garden furniture
The original colour was green
Shoulders have been aching today. Maybe I’m just getting old!?
R had her first GCSE English exam this morning. J and I walked round the park oh yeah and we did go to cafe. I had breakfast but barely ate any of it.
I had my physio in the afternoon. Went to a friend’s house 6:30pm for coffee, thank you Sarah, Dave and Jaki. And I said no to cakes (French fancies), my favourite.
Pika (one of our 2 cats) came in about 11pm and appears to have been bitten on his back near his tail. It looks v nasty and Pika did cry out in pain whilst trying to lick the wound. We are going to take him to the vets tomorrow.
Neil has been crippled last few days with back pain, very severe. He can barely move.
Feeling just a little bit stressed.
What have I eaten today?
1 sausage/1 egg/1bacon/slice wholemeal toast
Sugar free jelly
Packet Mccoys crisps (13.5 syns)
Skimmed milk tea/coffees
Not exactly a balanced diet but still
Pleased I did some walking today. Maybe tomorrow I can do some more?
It’s now 1:20am and I can’t get to sleep.
