OK... it started out small... then it got a bit bigger, and became a bit of a monster by the end of the day, with emails flying all over the place.
So, some clever tart suggested we create a Private Facebook Group. So I did!
I have sent invites out to everyone who has wanted to join... except:
Tina.... I don't have your Facebook Profile/Account to send a Friend request to.
If you don't have a Facebook account, all good. I can just email you instead and bug the shit outta you on a daily basis!
If anyone else wants to join our Weight Loss SUPPORT Group, send me your Facebook Profile name and I will add you. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
TODAY? I'm going to do a few things I didn't get around to yesterday! Seriously, I hardly got up from that bloody computer chair.
I want to get on the treadmill. And I want to do some sewing. And read some blogs. And do some housework. And, and, and... heaps more stuff.
And then some more stuff. The days are simply NOT long enough!
After having Takeaways for dinner last night, I feel ikkk... and like I've let myself down in a way. But, I have promised myself, I will allow myself ONE evil meal a week.
Changing your eating habits is all very fine and dandy, but ya need to have a little treat now and again, or you are bound to fall off the wagon.
I have had my treat. NOW it's time to knuckle down and do good by myself, and help my girlfriends by being a good role model. It's the only sort of 'model' I'm ever gunna be after all!
Dante has been a very fussy eater for a while now, so Bex keeps coming up with ideas to tempt him to eat.
ABOVE: Last night the kid had blue rice and veges. Looks more green to me though.
He did eat some, but he's still not that interested. He'll come right eventually.
They all do.
So, that's what I'm doing today. What are you doing? I hope some of you are getting to do some fun stuff... like shopping!
Next week Stew is off work, he's having to use up some of his holiday leave, as he's simply got too many days accumulated.
So I am sure he and I will get to spend some lovely one on one time together. I really can't wait.
I woke up HUNGRY. That does not happen very often. I know why I'm hungry too. I didn't raid the pantry last night. I was GOOD. So.... brunch will be a little earlier than usual. But that's OK.
Who else is hungry? I used to think if I felt hungry I was doing something right! But maybe it's not the right frame of mind? Maybe I should start having smaller meals more often, rather than a big lunch and dinner?
I'm going to cut my lunch quantity down by half. I know I've been eating far too much at lunchtime.
The main thing I have done to help myself is: NO SNACKING, No raiding the pantry, no cakes/biscuits or chocolate.
That is a bloody good start!
Steph and Michelle... done.
Bugger. I've got a headache AGAIN. I don't usually get many, so having quite a few in a row makes me crabby. I suppose it's down to my stress levels being too high.
Still got 2-3 weeks to go before knowing if my hubby has kept his job, been allocated a 'new' one in the same company, or been made redundant! It is doing me head in.
FROGGY: awesome news about your hubby's job. Way less stress for you now.
As of this minute, there are now 29 members of the Weight Loss Support Group, with 2 more pending! Wowzers. How cool is that?
It shows you are never alone in this particular struggle for sure.
I took Griffin to the dentist today to start work on his dead tooth.
More on that tomorrow.
It's been a quiet day ... which was nice.
I cooked a hearty winter meal of pasta with bacon/onion/tomato and cheese. Very filling. I'm still getting cravings for something sweet after dinner, but so far I'm managing to quell the craving with time.
Time? Well I just keep saying "NO NO NO" to myself until I go to bed. Then me problem is solved and I wake up feeling empowered and happy with myself.
Still small steps, but, oh so positive again.
End of Day: it's been a fab day! Totally in control of the diet... and the Support Group is growing and growing!
Time to sign off for the day.
