well, as the heading says I am living on Struggle Street the last week or so! I feel like I am the “old Nola” as opposed to the “New Nola” I was a few weeks ago. I have just found myself slipping back into my old ways and habits and eating waaayyyy too much.
I know it is down to me in the end and it is all about willpower until I find my “sweet spot”, but if I had the willpower it takes….then I wouldn’t have got a bloody band!! Me and willpower have a sporodic relationship to say the least! Oh, I know I will make it in the end…..but at the moment I am really struggling.
I am not doing the protein thing properly. Lollies and biscuits and things like that have been making frequent guest appearances…..you get the drift. So, one thing I know (if I stick to it) is that a food diary helps keep me on the straight and narrow. So, I am going to make a new page and call it my “food diary”…..I know….original name 🙂 I will be dead honest in there and will add comments about how I felt that day or whatever. I need to do this….at least for a while. My next fill is 31st of this month…..that will be interesting. I feel like I am nearly there…but not quite.
I forgot to weigh in last Thursday (thanks Tracey!). Not sure why!! I will leave it now though and do my usual weigh in this Thursday coming. So, starting tomorrow I will keep a diary and try to drink more water. I have been very, very bad with this. I keep forgetting!!
I went for xrays today on my hips. The left one is giving me curry and feels like somebody is using an electric drill on it. I wont get the results of that until I go back to my GP on Feb 5th. Oh well, I have put up with it this long. Nothing much else exciting going on in my life at the moment….Ricky is excited though!!!! He is coming ahead in leaps and bounds with his new shed….bless him!! I have gone by the wayside…on the bloody backburner…..the man nearly has his dream shed…….I just can’t compete with that 🙂
Progress shot…………..from left……Ricky’s son, Ricky’s bum, Ricky’s Dad!!
A funny little aside about Ricky’s Dad, Laurie………… Him and Ricky’s Mum, Eunice have nicknames for each other.
Laurie calls Eunice “Singlet”…………….because he says she is never off his back!!!!
Eunice calls Laurie “Pothole”……because she says he is always in the road!!! lol, lol
Here is a picture of Ricky’s daughter’s daughters (my stepgrandchildren). I had them for a few hours on Saturday. They are six years old now. I can’t believe they both nearly died at birth. Very premature…..Mia on the left dropped to 780gms and Hannah was 1294grams. They looked like tiny little aliens and were see-through. They let us in to see them just after they were born because they thought they might die. They were all tucked up under the lights and under bubblewrap to keep their temps steady…..amazing to see them now!! They were both smaller than the receiver on a phone.
PS: Get on over to Dizbanded’s blog and ask her a question….it is her turn to be interviewed!!! I would do the clever “Diz’s blog” thing and then you just click on it and it takes you there……..but I am a farking muppet and can’t work out how to do it!!!!! *sigh*
