Ups and Downs of Slimming

I had a really positive post last week and I felt fantastic.  This week has not been so good.  I lost 2lbs last week, which was brilliant, but then set myself the large goal of 3.5lbs for this week which was not achieveable for me this time and the more I felt myself failing the more depressed I got and fell into a vicious spiral.

I've got bored with cooking.  I do every so often.  And I get so fed up of making 4 different lunches - something for baby, sandwiches for the kids, something for He Himself and then something for me so I've been living off Mugshots which, while low cal, are not the most filling of meals.  I also somehow managed to run out of fruit (the kids ate all the apples - grrrrr!) and I didn't have any cold meats in to bulk out my salads.  So I've been hungry and fed up and bored and as a result have had a catastrophic fail.  I'm really not looking forward to getting on the scales tomorrow.

You know how you have a goal in your head for where you want to be next?  Well mine has been to be into the next stone on my scales at home.  I should have reached that this week and I haven't so have felt like giving up.

So what am I going to do about it?  Well, I'm going to stuff the kids full of the donuts that are sitting around the kitchen, ignore the white pappy bread, write a meal plan, put some jacket potatoes in the oven for lunch and buy some fruit and cold meats.  Hopefully that will keep me going over the next few days and get me back on track.  I'm also going to go back to writing a food diary so hopefully my #MumenTum post next week will be a bit more cheerful!
