Son thought it a good idea to water my laptop. <BR> <BR> Put 1lb on this week. Want 13 off in next 6 weeks and 4 days... I go away on the 10th Aug. <BR> <BR> Been asda shopping and got plenty of fruit an salad in. Got my S/W books to hand for out Fat Busters meetings (as previously explained I think) Made my salad last night so I have NO excuse. Got fresh pineapple an I've already cut it up so I have NO excuse. Ive also comp... Wed, 26 Jun 2013 03:11:42 EST Good Golly... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5399329 Over half way through the year already. Been having problems with the Sky internet but its all sorted now. Still stuck at 12st 5lbs but not worrying, its coming off no matter how slowly. <BR> <BR> Meds have changed to allow another baby in about 6months (as in can start trying), Green Tea extract is being taken to help aid my metabolism and im sticking to slimming world. <BR> <BR> No longer going to the meeting though. I am angered and disgusted by the conduct of my local leader after only ...

My life has been a whirl of hospital and docs apps and "diet" meetings. Thats right ive gone back on Slimming World. I was sooooo hungry all the time Cal counting and so many places dont have the calorie content on menus. At least i can take an educated guess with SW (and usually look it up online before I go) to have a rough estimate. <BR> <BR> LOst 3.5lb in 1st week but had a bad one this week. My mums been away an shes my calming influ... Mon, 3 Jun 2013 03:43:18 EST Home Again Home Again... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5358183 Good Morning All. <BR> <BR> Well that holiday was bliss - and much needed. Not so much the break, but the quality time we had as a family. PalmNova was beautiful and plenty of walking was done. I maintained my weight even drinkng full fat coke, and alcohol, and not touching the salad bar once. <BR> <BR> The highlight of my week was when a waitress asked if I was pregnant... NOT!! I happened to feel good before that! haha she was more mortified than me though so thats ok. <BR> <BR> Son sp...

I have plenty of problems of my own but my batty SIL has decided that as she has no friends that she will bring her problems to me. Ive become agony aunt to some one else. <BR> <BR> (Shes comtemplating leaving her BF of 18yrs and 12 year old son for a 25yr old norweigan fella - who shes only ever spoken to on fb and has known for only 3.5 months) <BR> <BR> Plus her current fella (who...

No pudding, un-battered chicken for starters and steak with potatoes and veg for tea... I even drank diet pepsi. When the whole family had Pasties on saturday afternoon - I had a 6" low fat sub. Small changes. Every little helps. <BR> <BR> Sunday wasnt as good. Ended up lost and starving trying to find a relatives house ended up on a McDonalds for ...

Ive had some things that needed my attention. My mental well-being being one of them. I've been at a low point. In a vicious circle of over-eating and self loathing. I could even see why some people choose to binge and purge - although I couldn't bring myself to do it. <BR> <BR> It was going to my Renal docs 2 weeks ago that finally started to bring me round. I was told that I WILL need a transplant in the next 5 years. Bluntly. No beating around the...

My legs are still aching from yesterday and its leg exercises today! I am actually looking forward to it though. <BR> <BR> Sports gear is currently in the wash (went in yesterday but fuse went and I was out til after shops had shut) then I can power on later. <BR> <BR> Goin to the market shortly (no point wasting time waiting when i have other things need doing too) for all lean meats, fruit and veggies, and have decided on this we...

Ive ordered my Insanity Workout DVDs. Once it arrives ill have 60 days of intense exercise (and im gonna use Spark blogs to hold me accountable!!) and I should have dropped some weight and toned uop nicely!! <BR> <BR> There will be winging, there will be complaining, but there will be results and a sense of self satisfaction. I am going to do before, during and after photos. <BR> <BR> I want you to nag if you dont see any. I am looking... Mon, 25 Mar 2013 07:25:12 EST 24/03/13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5297914 Good Morning. <BR> <BR> I feel much better than my last blog. Must have been on a real downer day that day. I am not denying that my facade has cracks, but its not always a facade. I am usually a REALLY happy person. I have a large, helpful and supportive family... except when it comes to my illness. It scares them too. I tend to get shut down with " well you know what the doctors have told you to do..." <BR> <BR> A friend I havent seen since my wedding (8 months ago) came to visit last nig... Sun, 24 Mar 2013 06:16:11 EST 21/03/2013 - evening http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5295328 As I was washing the pots this evening I was shocked to notice the tears streaming down my face. I feel that maybe getting this off my chest may help me feel better. This downer that I appear to be on may lift. My happy facade has its cracks and the more I try to hide them - the wider they seem to get. <BR> <BR> Im scared. Thats the main thing. Nobody truely knows how long they are going to live, but there is this feeling that you will live to an old age, live to see your children grow, to m... Thu, 21 Mar 2013 18:08:20 EST 20/3/13 & 21/03/13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5294527 Morning all. <BR> <BR> Would like to apologise for yesterdays blog being removed... put a pic on that made me giggle without realising it had profanity. Well obviously I realised but just didnt twig on haha. <BR> <BR> So yesterday was weigh day... 1.5lb lost this week :) Went food shopping for salad and fruit, and wrote a list of food for the next week's woth of evening meals. I also lost a false nail (which is great coz they're doin my head in now!) <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.s... Thu, 21 Mar 2013 04:01:07 EST 49/03/2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5292497 I am sick of being ill. Wouldnt mind a cold if i could get rid of the headache and sore throat! Ah well - todayn is my last day of self pity as the S.W.I.M.S.U.I.T challenge starts tomorrow :) <BR> <BR> Short one today. That is all. <BR> TTFN Dani xx Tue, 19 Mar 2013 14:07:55 EST A rather naughty weekend. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5290594 Good Moring! This is the 1st time in about 3 weeks that I have gotten up at 6.30 (instead of lounging in bed til 9ish) and I feel ready to take the world on! <BR> <BR> Potty training today - thats my main concern! - and some housework. <BR> <BR> Well, food wise, this weeekend has been an utter disaster. Friday nights tea ruined so I ended up on takeout. I had ann exceptionally bad night with Taylor, and was up at 3am then managed no sleep until midnight saturday. Being so tired (I was like ... Mon, 18 Mar 2013 04:05:01 EST 14/3/2013 & 15/3/2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5287320 Morning! <BR> <BR> To any readers out there who like Martina Cole or fiction books based on "gangland" culture - I recommend Kimberley Chambers. Im currently on book 3 and im hooked. The Feud is my fave so far. <BR> <BR> Well, yesterday: I hammered through the washing and got it all put away (minus the two washloads that were in tumbler and washer being done). That means that this morning I can wash the bedding (yay). I cleaned the kitchen top to bottom and tidied the livingroom. For once t... Fri, 15 Mar 2013 06:05:04 EST 13/3/2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5285333 What a crappy day I've had. I wanted to stay in bed all day I've been in that much pain - not an option with a 2 year old. So I've vegged out on the couch watchin Disney films with him instead. Thats the nice bit. I've been in agony all day as I cant take painkillers stronger than paracetamol and they just dont touch it. <BR> <BR> Then to top it off my hubbys mate is comin round later to watch the footy so even when my little ones in bed I cant be properly relaxed. <BR> <BR> My house is a b... Wed, 13 Mar 2013 13:48:50 EST 2 weeks since my last "confession" http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5283387 Good Morning, <BR> <BR> It has been two weeks since I last logged in, and this disgusts me. I have however been very busy, and VERY poorly. I even had a hospital stint due to funny pains and a continuous headache. Turns 0ut I was dehydrated. How when I've been drinking more than I ever have is a marvel, but there you have it. More plain water and less cordial/squash for me. <BR> <BR> The little man is as stubborn as ever on the potty training, so juice is a no apart from designated times ... Tue, 12 Mar 2013 01:24:54 EST Yesterday and weekend. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5264265 Well, I'm actually very proud of myself. I managed to avoid take out on friday evening, (making myself a Chicken, rice and Veg dish that had even the men drooling), and to avoid pasties on saturday afternoon (coming home and making an omlette for myself). <BR> <BR> I went out saturday night and drank vodka and DIET coke, (a big step for me as I cant stabnd the stuff) and didnt partake of the takout afterwards... I did however have macdonalds on sunday morning as I (the only driver with a cle... Tue, 26 Feb 2013 05:47:44 EST FRIIDAYY!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5259515 Good Morning. <BR> <BR> Disappointed that I never got my walk in yesterday, but thats because I had to wait for my food processor being delivered So I'm going to go today instead. I made Leek and Potato soup last night. Thinkin Carrot and Corriander today. I need to have made something in advance because its take out night, and I dont want my good intentions shattered. <BR> <BR> Taylor wasnt impressed with the soup, but neither was I. Seemed a bit tastless. Everyone else loved it though... ... Fri, 22 Feb 2013 03:55:34 EST A new me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5258303 Good morning all. <BR> <BR> Time for an update of the past week. <BR> <BR> I ahve stuck to my diet where-ever possible - except saturday night when I was out on the town. Didnt get in til 6am sunday morning. Its a rare occaision that I go out an drink (as I've never been a big drinker) so I'm not in a funk about it. I enjoyed it, it wont be repeated for a while. Missed my meeting this week so have no idea on the weight this week. I refuse to do it at home as I would get obsessed. <BR> <B... Thu, 21 Feb 2013 05:33:50 EST Good Morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5249900 Just a quick one today as I have neglected you for a week. Hubby has been "borrowing" my laptop all week haha. Decorator should have finished the livingroom by friday which means life can go back to normal! House looks like a bombs dropped and there isnt much I can do about it til hes done. <BR> <BR> Had a FABULOUS birthday which included a lovely bunch of flowers deliverd off my son. Think daddy may have helped there haha. Ireland was amazing even if the saturday morning was all business. E... Thu, 14 Feb 2013 04:14:37 EST 6/2/13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5239724 Sooo, last night was a success. Had smothered chicken (chicken breadt, bbq sauce - I asked for it without the bacon an cheese) followed by an ice cream sunday :( Had a laugh with the in-laws and managed not to kill anybody haha. <BR> <BR> They've given me my pressie early (funny coz I thought the meal was my pressie) so now have a Pandora bag sat on the fireplace shouting at me. I am exerting ALL my will power not to look!! and my card is sat behind it. <BR> <BR> Our lovely, romantic weeken... Wed, 6 Feb 2013 06:11:52 EST 5/2/13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5238166 Good Morning all. <BR> <BR> As I wrote the date this morning I realised my Great Grandma would have been 85 today. Sadly she passed a little over 5 years ago. She was an amazing lady, and is missed very much. It eases over time, but she will never be forgotten. <BR> <BR> So, Tuesday. The In Laws want to take us out for tea this evening in an early celebration of my birthday. That means getting me and baby ready (around the decorator), putting everything back in T's room (so we can actually ... Tue, 5 Feb 2013 03:34:00 EST 4/2/13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5236532 Good Morning my friends! <BR> <BR> I am in a highly energetic mood today. Hubby disturbed me at 6.30am so instead of just lazing about an going back to sleep I got up. I have already made myself a "workout playlist" as well as clean the living room and kitchen. Only been up an hour! <BR> <BR> Currently having some "Me" time before the little tyke gets up, which should be anytime now. Decorators coming today to fix my bad attempt at decorating. Wouldn't have been too bad if the old wallpaper... Mon, 4 Feb 2013 02:36:32 EST 3/2/13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5235647 Well, not sure how I feel about this week. Hair lopped off, arguements and quality family time. Currently dancing around my kitchen whilst doin the house work. What is it about music that makes everything better. Nothing much else to comment on. Had a good few rants this week that cover it all. <BR> <BR> Enjoy your sunday. Danielle xx Sun, 3 Feb 2013 11:50:59 EST 2/2/2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5234551 Oh Dear. Went for a routine trim today for my hair. I came home with a concave bob. It has its lovely healthy shine back too :) Only problem is my fringe is now on the wrong side! Thats gonna take some getting used too! <BR> <BR> Hubby has apologised properly for the other day after I told him I was sick of being verbally abused (thanks for that one Pickie98). He naturally said that was an overstatment haha. <BR> <BR> TV still not sorted so got hub to phone Virgin. We pay £100 a month for t... Sat, 2 Feb 2013 13:37:12 EST A better day? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5232593 Good Morning all :) <BR> <BR> After a fantastic start, yesterday went a bit... pants. <BR> <BR> Up and at 'em today, no grudges held in this house. Had a healthy breakfast (that i couldnt finish) and my 20 mins on the wii (little man didnt have the patience today) and lunch is planned. May try and get in a walk later, but that will depend on the young one. Hes not well again. Darent risk being too far away from a changing station. <BR> <BR> Housework must go on, so started with a wash load... Fri, 1 Feb 2013 04:13:48 EST Apologising in advance... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5232014 FOR F&£@ SAKE!!! I have never EVER met a more unsupportive, self-centered stubborn C£&@ in my ENTIRE life!! And I had to fluffin marry him! What a P£&@k!! Thu, 31 Jan 2013 16:37:43 EST 31/01/2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5231171 Morning, <BR> <BR> Today is supposed to be a nursery day, but me and the hubby have come to the decision that he isnt going back. Its costing us a small fortune and he's missing one day a week as he comes home with some new illness or tummy bug. Every week is a bit ridiculous. There are other things too, like sending him home in the wrong nappies... i wouldnt mind if they were then asking for another pack meaning they'd run out and had to borrow another childs or from a stash they have for ... Thu, 31 Jan 2013 04:48:42 EST 28/01/2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5228204 Good Morning! <BR> <BR> Son is at nursery today, so I untend to rest up, clean the house and do some exercise. Not necessarily in that order. Im just gettign my daily spark in first! <BR> <BR> Thinking of a nice long, quick walk to get the heart pumping, and get some fresh air! Shopping day tomorrow, supposed to be buying a new top but I cant face it if im being honest. I dont want to buy new clothes when im hoping to be in them for only a short time. Esp when I already have clothes that fi...

Had loads of snow saturday but woke up sunday to having non! Our attempt at an igloo failed miserably what with the little one keep sitting on the walls and collapsing them! went out saturday night (wish I didnt) and ended up on a chinese for supper. Hopefully will claw it all back again this week. Honestly I'd be better off kicking him out every weekend! <BR> <BR> Exercise has been lacking for the past few weeks, although running aro...

Long Story) yesterday was a good day. Once we had our energetic little puppy back things looked up. I made a large Ham salad for dinner and Spanish Chicken for tea with Mash and Veggies. My hubby ate the lot again. Hes not known for his veggie eating! <BR> <BR> All in all not a ruined diet day. Little man has a bad tummy, so isnt eating much and isnt in nursery as normal. Ijust hope its not a bug that ... Thu, 24 Jan 2013 03:41:32 EST An Epiphany http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5219579 Good Morning all!! <BR> <BR> Over this weekend I have gotten drunk, eaten badly, and worst of all... neglected spark! <BR> Yet I have clawed it all back and lost another 1lb this week! YIPPEE!! <BR> <BR> My Epiphany is this: I miss you all when I dont log on. Spark and its members are an inspiration and a huge support. Even just knowing I have people I can talk to is a massive motivation. So thank you. <BR> <BR> Moving on! Im so proud of myself. Im 22, and I cant cook. Ive lived with my pa... Wed, 23 Jan 2013 06:07:28 EST 01/17/13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5211571 Another good day food wise, and a walk to the local shopping village. <BR> <BR> Bath and bedtime soon for the monster. Hes been good as gold today. Had a play, learned some animal noises and where his eyes, ears and nose is. <BR> <BR> Hubbys birthday tomorrow so extra good to allow for guests bringing stuff for a "party" tomorrow night, and a small piece of the cake my sister is baking (shes amazing) Then 2 birthdays on saturday (F-I-L and mother) so will no doubt have a not-the-best day a...

Its might not be much but its a step in the right direction and thats what counts! Slow and steady wins the race - or in this case keeps the weight off long time! <BR> <BR> Been beyond good today food wise... even avoided the biscuits at Grans house! A mammoth task on its own :) Had no time for exercise today as Little Man has been a monster and not been for his nap. Hes in bed now so will get some crunches in if... Wed, 16 Jan 2013 14:14:36 EST Disappointed In Myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5208587 Weigh in tomorrow. Dreading it! Started off the week so well, but feel like i've slipped steadily since the weekend. I've done exercise, and eaten well, but I just feel like I've blown it on little things. Ill find out tomorrow. Ate crap today, no breakfast, pasta for lunch then chocolate and nuts. Actually couldnt help myself. The day before weigh in of all days! Ive not had tea yet either because I just cant face the thought of food. <BR> <BR> Hubbys not home from work yet, and he'll know ... Tue, 15 Jan 2013 14:59:21 EST Back To The Grindstone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5206837 Hello! <BR> <BR> So after a mediocre weekend (dietwise) I have been ultra good today. Spent the day at my mothers helping her to job search and write a cv then left little man with her whilst I came home an blitzed all downstairs again (Feel like I have three children, not one!) only took an hour an half and thats including walking to and from my mums!! <BR> <BR> Had an excellent weekend exercise wise, a 2 hour 4.5 mile walk with dog and pram, 20 mins on the wii zumba and 20 mins on the wii... Mon, 14 Jan 2013 14:05:13 EST "Treat Night" http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5203508 Didnt exactly go as planned last night! I had take out :( BUT still stuck to my diet! Looked into it all and a chicken tikka masala is within my syns range :) . So, i did go slightly over, because the other half "treated" me to a chipati with it, but i ate in moderation, stopped when i was full and only had that. No afters, no alcohol, no full fat pop. <BR> <BR> Had my syns for today when the lodger made bacon butties on white bread... but you've still got to live ;) . Luckily my plan for te... Sat, 12 Jan 2013 11:33:01 EST A little update on 1/8/2013's blog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5201603 Well, been to my GP this morning about a refferal for the gym. He all but refused. Apparantly I dont need one, I just need to listen to my own body and go to a different gym where they dont know about my issues and not tell them. <BR> <BR> THIS COMING FROM AN ACTUAL DOCTOR! Talk about mixed flaming messages! <BR> <BR> So on that note I have decided to join the local gym and do the aqua-aerobics classes (with my nanna) and maybe fit a small gym sesh or two in as well. Tone up as I lose weigh... Fri, 11 Jan 2013 06:06:01 EST Shocked! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5199931 Reading another members blog I realised that you could comment on them (so I did because this lady really is really someone who inspires me) and came to write my own blog. I hadnt noticed how many lovely comments I had, so thank you all. It means a lot. I didnt actually think anyone had read these (was like a diary for me) so I really was shocked, and touched! <BR> <BR> So, Today. Taken my lovely two year old to Nursery, and braved taking the 15 week pup alongside us. Not as difficult as I t... Thu, 10 Jan 2013 06:26:32 EST A New Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5198209 Well, went for my 1st weigh in today. Actually surprised. Thought i was going to be at least 13st like I was last time, but no not quite that high :) Still much higher than it should be and higher than it will be next week. <BR> <BR> Got my hubby on the health kick too, that makes things easier. Got a shop to do soon to get all the heath foods needed for meals for the next few days. Even gonna treat myself to some fruit haha. No more bread, no more high fat conveinience foods. Just home coo... Wed, 9 Jan 2013 06:53:15 EST Not A Happy Bunny http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5196292 So, Body Combat last night.
