It was good thanks Twinkle
Tough at breakfast (i do love carbs in the morning) and again around 3pm. I had one apple and a can of mulligatawny soup with cabbage at tea time (everyone else had roast beef, roast potatoes.... envy)

Your menu for yesterday is really good. I too am determined to avoid empty snacks.

Crap spelling all over that post.

TheRealAmandaClarke Mon 13-Oct-14 07:09:16

twinkle youre doing so well. A few days of extra food wont matter and besides, the bf will take some calories off.

Hazel poor thing. I remember those pregnancy pains. Its hard. Its such a relief to get that strength and energy back when your baby arrives. And you will be tired, but its different, and its lovely.

My tips for not going mad after baby: if you can, get a cleaner. You absolutely need to rest when you can and housework will stop you doing that.
Dont listen to annoying advice. Give people a hard stare if they try to make you feel you should have done something " better" or their way. It helps to have a supportive and slightly rude Dh for this one. wink

That's all I have. I haven't actually succeeded in not going mad myself, but i suspect some of it is work related.

Oh, food. God. Loads. I didn't fast last week blush and i need to stop having wine.
So i am fasting today. Full of hope and promise. No alcohol until friday. No chocolate or crisps until friday. Oh, amd no sandwiches at work. They baly tough the sides and i just eat more. So proper (leftovers type) lunch at work on tues and wed.
And no breakfast mon- wed.
There. I've said it!

Twinklestar2 Sun 12-Oct-14 23:11:47

Ah thanks twinkle I had bad period type pains yesterday evening and they woke me up a few times in the night. I've still got pain around my coccyx too which is making me miserable. No idea how I'm going to cope with over 12 hours in the car this weekend. On the bright side, I ditched the pregnancy pillow again last night and my thighs didn't burn. Hurrah!

Yesterday: Ok. Deep breath.

B - honey nut shredded wheat
L - tin of heinz ravioli
D - 2 slices pizza, twisty fries, chicken strips
S - 2 x french fancies, 2 x fudge, 1 x milky bar, S&V squares, 2 x pork pies

I'm actually appalled by that.

Twinklestar2 Wed 08-Oct-14 21:07:10

Thank god for breastfeeding! It allows me to eat a bit extra every day. smile

Twinklestar2 Wed 08-Oct-14 11:19:15

Hazel I remember the sleepless pregnant nights - you have my sympathy too!! I had such bad backache, it was a relief when baby was born and it was gone!!

11st 3 today so 1lb off smile

Hazelbrowneyes Wed 08-Oct-14 08:31:09

Hugs to twinkle and amanda

I feel like an absolute fraud saying this as I have no baby to keep me awake but I am so fed up of not sleeping. I know it's only going to get worse (if one more person tells me this, I am going to get stabby) but I've been awake since 2am. I think my pelvis is screwed but I don't think it's SPD. I'm fine when I'm walking but the pain when I'm laid down is horrific. My right thigh ends up burning and achey.

I've got a mild cold which isn't helping with sleep and actually neither is DH with his murmurings in the middle of the night drink induced murmurings of course

I'm desperately trying to eat healthy in the hope it'll help with sleep but I'm failing. I genuinely do believe half my problem is too much sugar, I just seem unwilling to cut it out.

Going away on Saturday for a few weeks so I'm reluctant to book a GP appointment beforehand. I've scheduled one for when I get home and I'll mention it to the consultant on Friday.

No point writing my food diary for the last few days - 1. I can't remember all of it and 2. I'm embarrassed by how awful it was.

TheRealAmandaClarke Wed 08-Oct-14 07:35:55

Oh Twinkle. You have my sympathies.

Twinklestar2 Tue 07-Oct-14 22:32:42

Same here!

Baby seems to have regressed to waking every 2 hours!!

TheRealAmandaClarke Tue 07-Oct-14 21:25:40

TheRealAmandaClarke Sun 05-Oct-14 17:18:34

Well done Twinkle you've made some good healthy choices there. I always feel pleased with myself if I decline a biscuit grin. It happen often.
This week i am locked in battle with a bag of those spicy, iced, soft gingerbready biscuits from LIDL. I am not winning.
But it could be worse. I have eaten a few pieces of fruit this weekend and i declined an almond magnum. I have had wine though blush
Just about to have roast lamb dinner.
Fasting tomorrow.

Twinklestar2 Sat 04-Oct-14 21:24:35

Today could've been better. But I've eaten far too much bread.

I had muesli and ss milk for breakfast.

Lunch was a couple of crumpets and a skinny latte.

We had guests round about 4ish so we had roast chicken, salad, roasted new potatoes, coleslaw and nice bread.

They had tea and biscuits for afters and I just stuck with tea.

So not bad but not great either. October has not been good to me so far!

Big healthy shop coming tomorrow which will help with getting back on track.

I was good yesterday tho - OH ordered Nandos and I stuck to chicken wings, rice and salad.

Looking forward to the cupboards and fridge being stocked up with healthy foods and getting back to it! 27 days till the family wedding and I want to be comfortably in the 10s for it.
