Tangy - could you get someone 'independent' to look at your food diary and see if there is a reason why the weight isnt coming off. It sounds to me that you do stacks of exercise and are careful with meal planning etc so maybe a different approach is called for? I have a friend who eats very few cooked meals and cant loose weight. When we looked at her diet there was loads of cereal (with milk, and sugar content) that she was overlooking as it wasnt a 'proper meal'. Stacks of fruit can be a problem too for some people cant it? fab run though, you are so ready for your race!
Turbo - any behaviour is normal for a 4 yr old, doesnt have to have a reason, can be random and may escalate when tired, hungry or Just because. I find it also relates to the cost of the item or activity concerned, so they will scoff a cheapy ice cream but if you order an expensive one it will 'look funny, taste funny or just be too melty, too cold or have too many bits in'..... love the house developing so quick, wow!
JG - ppfft, I would ask her 'just why do you come to stay if you dont like me?'
Caro - holiday has been a success then!? Sounds like a proper break from work for you all. I hate missing swimming when they are paid in advance. Have just paid for next term and realised we are away both bank holidays and doing a tri on another day so they will miss quite a few.
Boys and hubby spent last night in in-laws garden - in a tent, in a tent (bit like a bird in a bird).... guess they have been warm enough as no creeping in to the house so far, I was snoring by 10pm!
Well done EF, sounds like loads going on for everyone as usual but fab for those enjoying the hols and zoo trip is making me jealous Tatty.
Could kick myself as I forgot to order archies night caths. I have 5 left but of course the bloody ordering service is shut until Tuesday so i wont be able to get the script until then and they usually take a few days to come. Have worked 58 hours in the last 4 days though so guess something had to give.
Obv absolutely no running for me this week but have had an email saying i can have the free entry for chatsworth tri which is amazing.
yippee to doing exercises, staycations, argueing for loads of money and fabby runs
boo to no bank holidays, forgetting to confirm client and to busy schedules
Think I may have bagged an entry to a standard distance tri which if i have i will need to seriously train for. river swim so guessing some of that will be easy (downstream) and some will be blimmin hard (upstream...)All parts are ok, its just putting them all together.
Working really long hours while kids are away, midnight finish last 2 nights. YAWN.
