Stay Hydrated!
Wednesday, September 28, 2016      4 comments

When my expartner left suddenly, one of my friends came to stay. And her last piece of advice on the phone before she hit the road to come to me was 'Stay Hydrated'. At the time I did, but recently all of my good habits have fallen by the w... Read more
Climbing back on that wagon
Monday, September 26, 2016      3 comments

Well it's been almost 6 weeks since my world turned upside down. I've tried really hard not to give in to comfort eating and have tried to get on. Last week, a combination of being on my own for most of the week on holiday, and PMT derailed... Read more
Cleaning is Cathartic
Sunday, September 11, 2016      3 comments

Today is a cleaning day. I'm going away with my dad for a few days so the house had to be cleaned. Yesterday was a fun day, visiting churches and castles that were open for the heritage open days. Even better the places weren't busy because... Read more
A Strange Week
Wednesday, September 07, 2016      4 comments

So far this week has been really weird I am getting to grips slowly with doing everything myself. But I am struggling a bit on staying tidy. Even with a dish washer, or maybe because of it, the washing up seems to ebb and flow in terms of ... Read more
Interesting Times

Last night, one of my friends came over. I had only told her about us splitting up yesterday and she came over last night. We had chinese and chocolate gateau and icecream with cracking sauce. And ginger beer because she was driving. D... Read more
I'm better than that :)

Last night I slept poorly. I went out with my dad early today, and then helped tidy up my sister's garden. By the time I got home I was very tired, and feeling sorry for myself. I cried at the futility of it all. That the house was a mess. ... Read more

Yesterday I helped my dad in the garden for a while. It's the first time I have done anything truly active in a couple of weeks. It was mainly picking up all the bits he had cut off the bushes and cutting them up for the bin. He strugg... Read more
One week on
Friday, August 26, 2016      2 comments

And i'm probably more sad than this time last week. Last week I was being practical - waiting to hear he was ok - looking at what I needed to do. Being strong and reassuring my friends and family I was ok. This week, all of that stress... Read more

I don't know what to do with myself. My long term partner ended our relationship last week and left. It all happened very quickly. I've not been eating all that much and I've taken some time off work to get my head straight. I lost about 6 pound... Read more
Crazy Food Days
Tuesday, August 09, 2016      2 comments

The last day or two have been crazy food days. Yesterday I was bored at work - we're in a rare and very temporary lull in our workload (this ends later this week but hey ho) and I ended up buying two bags of popcorn. Then we went out f... Read more

I have been checking my weight daily (which isn't a good thing) but I 'weigh in' once a week. I'm about 5 ounces heavier than last week. BUT: I stayed under 21 stone (294 pounds) all week :) Here's the interesting part - I measur... Read more
A challenging day
Thursday, August 04, 2016      2 comments

Today has been quite challenging. Work was hard with people arguing with me and one person refusing to sit and talk to me about something - going so far as to ask for one of my colleagues. I was quite stressed and a little bit offended... Read more
Avoiding the tuck shop
Tuesday, August 02, 2016      2 comments

Today wasn't a great day at work - people were edgy and stressy and it rubbed off on me. I thought I upset someone who got cross and grumpy and it didn't help. I really wanted to raid the tuckshop - not for chocolate - I'm still not eating cho... Read more
Paying Attention
Wednesday, July 27, 2016      3 comments

I've realised it's important to pay attention. I've been food tracking for two months - I think I've only missed three or four days in that time. I'm surprised I have stuck with it as I struggle to stick with things like this - maybe it res... Read more
Enough! Stop Procrastinating!
Wednesday, July 20, 2016      5 comments

Yesterday got up too late for exercise. Last night was not great food wise and I went to bed late. I set my alarm for 6 and honestly thought I'd end up snoozing like yesterday. But the body is an amazing thing and woke me up at 5.45 because... Read more
