Day 20: no sugary snacks
Sunday, February 23, 2020      4 comments

Twenty days! Only ten left. Although I am now thinking of extending this to another 30 days, with the allowance of a piece of dark chocolate in the evenings. I haven't quite decided, yet, though. Why? Because I feel much better, now, emoti... Read more

Not too much to say about today that I haven't said before. This morning, I really wanted a hot chocolate, and yet again, I had to work to persuade myself not to. My husband is ill with a fever (caught from my son) and my in-laws wer... Read more

Another no sugary snack day. Also a week where I have cooked meals every night. Not the healthiest meals - last night was hamburgers - but at least it was made at home, right? I know the whole family will slowly adjust to home-cooked food ... Read more

I can feel the resilience muscle slipping a little bit. Had lunch with my husband and we shared a tart afterwards - I'm noticing a trending theme of desserts with my husband here!! I think I need to work out responses to help me be a bit more re... Read more
Day 16 - one unplanned sugary snack (!!)
Wednesday, February 19, 2020      2 comments

Today was tough. But my unplanned sugary snack was related to my son offering me one of his ice-lollies to eat. It was a moment where my parenting took precedence over diet, simply because I think that for a four year old to want to share ... Read more

Yay! It was a nice day. I did a little bit of gardening. It is the first time I have lived in a home with a garden my entire adult life, so I thought I would try and plant some bulbs. Who knew our garden had so many worms, is all I can say ... Read more

Almost at day 15. Two weeks. The temptation was really strong today. I ended the day with a small piece of dark chocolate. Also managed a nice run. I'm busy building up my distance again after all this travelling I have been doing... Read more
Day 13: no sugary snacks

When my son is sick my main job is 'to keep him warm'. In other words, to cuddle him. It's not such a bad job, especially as I was feeling a bit unwell myself. I had the last cupcake after my jog today, and that was all the sweet sugar. ... Read more

Saturday, February 15, 2020      4 comments

Valentines Day. My husband asked me about a week ago if I was eating sugary snacks on Valentines Day. I said it would be okay (suspecting he had seen something he thought I would like). Valentine's day arrived and I was given a beautiful bouquet... Read more
Day 11 - no sugary snacks

Another hard day. No sugar. Weight is lower again. My waist line has reduced by over an inch - so there is definite truth in sugar and one's waistline. Emotionally, lots of conversations with my husband. Funny how as my emotions come ... Read more
Day 10 - no sugary snacks

I really needed the chocolate today. It was a hard day. One of those work days where it feels like everything is just a little bit more complicated than it should be. There was a ted talk on youtube that spoke about weight-loss and this pe... Read more
Day 9: No sugary snacks
Tuesday, February 11, 2020      2 comments

.... but oh so close! Tuesdays are hard. It usually starts with a long planning meeting and then catching up with all the e-mails I missed on my day off. By the end of the day I am exhausted and then I have to go and get my pre-schooler, who usu... Read more
Day 8: No sugary snacks

I didn't have anything sugary today. We were out of the house for most of the day, with the friends who are visiting town again. Then in the evening we made simple home-made nachos and hummus. Making hummus with my son was such a delight. ... Read more
Day 7: no sugary snacks

One whole week! It was a good day. As I mentioned in my previous blog, I got to sleep in, and that set the tone for the rest of the day: Very easy. It was hard not to eat out of boredom, and I did find myself eating food when not really hu... Read more
Day 6: No sugary snacks
Sunday, February 09, 2020      4 comments

Today my mood was a whole lot better. I was less short tempered and grumpy, and quite happy for many parts of the day. I had decided we needed a day out - a day where I wasn't working or stressing. We spent time with friends in the morning (the ... Read more
