Off the rails a little bit….

So… Yesterday was ok, foodwise. I went to the gym first thing, 300 and 20something calories later (not much, but it’s a start) I caught up with the family, we took largest to an indoor play place, had lunch (jacket potato) at a supermarket, and then hit the beach for a little walk.

Little was teething, that’s why he’s eating his wrap.

I made a pretty decent evening meal (even if I do say so myself!)

And then had an argument with husband which resulted in him sleeping in the sofa. Apparently, he waited all night for me to come and tell him to go to bed. I didn’t.

So, today was pretty bad, foodwise. There may have been sweeties.

I tried to redeem myself with a healthy lunch (giant cous cous and beans with salad)

But… We had a mini BBQ, so I’m way over on my protein and carbs for today. I also had 2 alcohol free beers. Which is just pointless calories!!!!

And then because things had gone wrong, I had chocolate. Followed by icecream. The cone looked evil, but I still ate it.

Little baba cut his tooth today. Part came through and he cut the rest biting an ice cube (in a net thingy) that I’d giving him to try and numb it.

So… Tomorrow I get back on the straight and narrow. I haven’t any exercise planned, but will at least fit a walk in somewhere. And no sweeties. And the right amount of carbs and protein. I am not messing this up because other things in my life are messed up!

Tomorrow is another day, and I’m going to sleep so it comes faster. G’night all, hope you’re doing better than me xx

Super chef!

Today I am officially super chef!

Larger child was at nursery, so I made macaroni cheese for lunch – I keep missing my dairy portions, and having I eat extra late at night. So, I decided to try a ‘healthy’ version for lunch. It was nice, I’d probably try it on the family!

But for best success, is my tea, tomato and bean soup:

It’s very nice, and I’ll definitely make it again. Last night I had an ice cream 🙁 but I was honest on my little ticky box thing, and showed that I’d been bad.

Gonna be better today! It’s nearly 8pm, I still have lots of housework to finish, then I need a bath, as I’m getting a birthday haircut tomorrow. And yes, it has been a year since I got my hair cut (I can’t afford it). My mam is taking me as a birthday present, and we’re going somewhere posh. I really don’t want to turn up smelling like floor cleaner! And we’re going for lunch afterwards, so I’m going to have to be very careful why I eat! I suppose you only turn 30 once, I’ve only got 3 days of my 20’s left…

So, for my ticky boxes, I have 1 carbohydrates, 2 fats, sugar and alcohol, and 4 fluid boxes left to tick.
Shouldn’t be too hard!

Well, food is finished, I need to get the rest of my jobs done, or I’ll be up all night!

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?
