General Chit Chat/ Health & Fitness

God it’s been ages since I last posted, I am so useless at the moment. Truth is I have been in a pretty dark place for a few months now and I lost complete control of eating healthily and caring about myself! Its like a never-ending cycle when I’m like that; I feel bad so I eat, I eat then I feel worse and so on and so forth!

Last week I broke that cycle, kicked my own arse and walked back into my local Slimming World group, It was exactly what I needed, I regained control of my eating and I feel MUCH better again!

I went back for my first weigh in today and I lost an amazing FOUR pounds! I am over the moon to be back on track! My head is in the right place and I’m raring to go!

I’m hoping to get better and continue blogging here, I did think about merging this blog with This Mummy Loves… but I’ve decided not to do that because I want a place that is just for me. Somewhere I can come and have a good moan or tell you all how wonderful I am feeling etc

I really need to find time for me! Just simple things like reading a book curled up on the sofa, shaving my legs or going for a coffee. I need to become ‘me’ again – It’s been 17 years since I became a Mum and as much as I ADORE my kids I really just need a bit of time for me. In the new year I am hoping to share all of those things with you but for now I’m back on track and feeling good 🙂

    My lovely Chick this post is amazing, I am over the moon that you are finding a light, I know exactly how you feel although I can not even see a glimmer of that light.
    Congrats on the albs I knew you would do it, you are all kinds of awesome, don’t pressure yourself, set small targets.
    and shaving your legs is for the elite, no need at this time of year helps keep you warm xx

    Glad you’re feeling a lot better now. I only have one child, a 3 year old, and by the time he is 17 – well, if I’m not in a mental institute by then (and there are days I feel it’s entirely possible) – I plan on having a complete mid life crisis, I will have a week of partying, maybe a holiday of a lifetime, go on a massive spending spree and just be irresponsible for a whole week 🙂 It is soooo hard having to be responsible all the time, trying to stay in control of absolutely everything makes me feel like I’m a juggler just about keeping all my balls in the air at once but one little mistake and everything will come crashing down! I love my little man to bits but there are times I just want to stay in bed in the morning and not have to deal with making breakfast, tidying the house and brushing teeth!

    PS What is shaving your legs? This must be some kind of mystical non-mum thing right? ahhh yes, I vaguely remember, it reminds me of the time I used to be able to use the bathroom in peace for longer than approx. 45secs! 😉
