Finally feeling human again.

Hey everyone, I was planning on writing my blog yesterday but I had a migraine for 2 days straight so putting the laptop on did not happen as I think my head would have exploded! Some of you already know I seem to have lost my way recently.. I don’t really know what’s been up or why I have been off track, I have been thinking maybe it’s something to do with the uncertainty around my job as I still haven’t started properly have just been doing training and that’s been a lot to take on in itself let me tell you. So I have really been wanting to get back on track but am actually if I’m honest struggling to find the motivation.. I don’t know exactly what’s up I just don’t seem to be in it 100% however I am trying to have as many days on track as I can and I’m off to the gym tomorrow morning to swim for a couple of hours so am hoping that will perk me up a bit, I’m hoping when I finally get my start date for work that I can get back into some sort of routine again and it will all fall into place but who know’s lol. We got a kitten last week and she is adorable but a lot of work lol hence the fact I had a migraine for 2 days as she wasn’t being very accommodating in letting me sleep! Her name is Pepper and she is the most playful, scatty yet intelligent and loving cat I have ever known.

Meet Pepper

I’ve put my daily propoints back up to 29 to give me a little more room to manovuer and I’ve also been thinking to way back when the pp system first came into play and I remember losing more then than now when I am on 26. I switched my lunch and dinner round today as I was hungrier I felt at lunch time,  So given that bit of info my menu today was:

Breakfast: Golden syrup oss 5pp, 100ml Skimmed milk 1pp, Graze beach bum punnet 3pp.  

Lunch: Chilli Taco Beef in 2 tortilla wraps 14pp, 30g Light philadelphia 1pp, 15g sweet chilli sauce 1pp.

Dinner: 1 pouch Birdseye tomato and herb rice fusions 6pp, 15g Light philadelphia 1pp.

Total used 31/29pp, 2 weeklies used. 

I only have 1 weekly left now after the weekend so that’s good and I’ve also decided to try and not snack at all as I really believe that 80% of the time this is my downfall, just having things like penguins and crisps in the flat are a no no for me right now. So that’s me I will endeavour to be on everyday but I can’t promise anything! I will be on tomorrow for definite to tell you how I got on with my swim.. I am planning to swim 2 miles tomorrow so wish me luck! 🙂 

Much Love Gems 😀
