Too tired to be a domestic goddess today

Or any other day really. The kids did a tag team thing to keep us awake last night. The tiredness is now setting in. It’s easy to see how I put weight on, I’ve been using sugar to keep me awake! As I’m limited to 4 portions of fatty/sugary stuff, I’ve used one to have spread on my toast at breakfast, and one to have a post-lunch digestive biscuit. I baba is having a nap, but larger child seems to have plenty of energy. How come he isn’t tired?? I’m so tired my head hurts!!

On another note, my super super healthy lunch:

Spelt, lentils, brown rice and vegetables! Getting better, methinks!

I have lots of housework, but I’m sitting on the sofa, struggling to be awake. Don’t you just love kids?

Eat your breakfast, or we can’t go out!

That’s what I seem to say at least 90 times every morning! Why don’t toddlers eat? It’s only toast! I’m waiting for him to realise that I am more stubborn than him, and will wait him out.

Anyway, I downloaded the NHS BMI app this morning, and it linked to some podcasts that I downloaded too. I figure I can listen to them in when husband’s at football. There’s a set designed for you to listen to when you’re training to start running, apparently, it guides you through when you should be walking/running and builds you up over time. However, I can’t see me jogging up the high street with my double pushchair! You have to commit to 3 days a week, with a day off in between. Gonna talk to husband, but that seems impossible to fit in with the schedule unless I take the kids with me!
