The scales have let me down!

Good afternoon dear friends,

I hope you are having a lovely day after all we are half way through the week. Two more days until its family time!

Today, I had a full day at work and it was busy, as its the start of a new term and new topics there is just so much to do.

My walking will be down a bit today as sweet man came and picked us up from school, its not very often that happens anymore as he is normally home a lot later than me.

Cleaning today is nada, not a thing! And I have a friend who I haven't seen for a long time coming over to tea tonight so its very unlikely anything will get done.

But last nights lavender bath and reading worked a treat so I will carry that on tonight with my boys and as my friend is a teacher I will ask her to do some reading with my beautiful daughter. Ha ha I'm sure she won't mind.  It was lovely to wake up to happy children. We sat and ate our breakfast together and chatted all the way to school. Such a treat.

I have been very good with my exercise and food the last two days but I got on the scales this morning and found that I have put on 2 pounds! I was mortified. Everyone at work was telling me your catching up from Christmas. Hmm not the point. I have been so good.

Ok so my food today as I have not let it put me off has been:-

Breakfast - 1oz crunchy nut

Snack - nutrigrain bar

Lunch - 4 ryvitas with low fat cream cheese

Dinner - Jacket potatoes with cheese and beans and salad

I will work out the calories tomorrow and also my exercise for today.

Take care xx


  1. You HAVE been so good, and I am cheering you on.

  2. Thank you Susan, I am still going to be good. I think i'll take my measurements too, just in case the scales contine to lie to me! Ha ha xx

  3. It's always disheartening to see the scales not respond to our efforts! However, remember to eat all the calories that you should. If you don't eat enough, your body goes into starvation mode (you felt dizzy today) and you're actually working against yourself.
