i have pinched your approach Caro - asked the boys what made them happy and what made them proud yesterday, Tom was beaming that he had jumped off the top diving board! It does help to balance the negatives when your children express joy. 

Kinsey - the one and only time my mother looked after Archie he came back hurt.... Never again. I think everyone is so right about understanding 'why' but having choices about how we let it affect us and how we let it affect our own children. 

Hoggle - bed time blues are stressful and harder for you having to deal with it alone most nights i guess. It will ease so hang in there, she will know how to push your buttons so pick your battles - it doesnt matter if she has the light on, bed full of teddies, sleeps on the floor etc etc. What does matter is that knows you are not going to keep responding to her when you have set the rules. easier said than done though! 

Hope Nurofen is having a safe, steady race!! 

CM - perhaps the wedding will give you chance to see each other without pressure. Are your kids going too? 

Mum was suicidal again yesterday and i nearly lost it with her..... All because she doesnt want to stop spending.

Boo to feeling tired and stressed still, being on your own at bedtimes, sore back, fussy eaters, sugar fiends and work demands.

Yippee to swimming, fab running clubs, farms and running for scotland!!!! 

CM - would rather a cold wet yomp to a spa weekend???? You are totally mad. 

interesting discussions about diets - i am getting thoroughly confused with it all. One expert says yes carbs, the next says no, some say no red meat the next says yes as long as its grass fed, low fat, high fat, eggs, olive oil...... Arrrgh. 

Mum slowly improving so i am trying to limit how much it affects me. Finished work and drove straight to pool for 30mins with fins, run club for an hour of hill reps then home and 30 mins on the turbo.....

Mum awake at times but has slurred speech, double vision and bad tremors. Looks like they are trying to get her medically stable and arent even thinking about a psych asst until then. 

RF - i have done all the sessions before but wont get them in this week!

She took a lot of pills but i guess she could have assumed her husband would come around lunchtime. She had a GCS of 3 and was not rouseable when the ambulance got there but by the time she had vommed and had a drip for a few hours she is at least opening her eyes to pain stimuli. She cant speak yet and is twitching and retching despite anti-emetic.

Arse. Mum took a massive overdose today, thankfully i went round to check she was ok and found her (well technically her husband found her but was just holding her hand and hadnt phoned an ambulance). I called 999 and help took 20 mins to arrive but she is in hosp now and nothing we can do until she wakes up.

i thought the bad weather and storms were set to hit everyone Brookie! Certainly felt the icy sleet being blown in my face during this mornings run. Beautiful in parts but as the cloud descended and we were getting spaced out i was very worried about one of our club members who has less fat than a sparrow and gets cold very quickly. It is nice to go trogging over the wilderness but not so good when we are all mixed ability. 

IM isnt until July but definately trying to copy your fat burning Lotte. Not carb loading before sessions and trying to keep heart rate down which will be essential on the day. I cant stomach gels so want to fuel on real food. 

Just put a huge order in for approved foods - they have flapjacks and nut bars on offer aswell as choc for hubby Lunchbox. can save a bomb if they have stuff you actually want (which often they dont!) 

Caro - hope back eases, go steady x

Back to school grind tomorrow, Archie already tantrumming in protest......

Oh heck..... The base phase has nearly killed me...... 3 hours on the bike today left me so hungry i ate scrambled egg, veg and cheese, malt loaf and a banana followed by sweet & sour chicken with rice and 2 pancakes. Not sure why i am not losing weight? 

So tired i am finding all sessions hard and crappy weather wont help this week. Cant imagine upping swimming to 3 times a week nor how to squeeze the sessions into an hour? 

How is everyone else doing?

Caro - not good to have bakc pain, did you still run?

Nessie - new kitchen sounds great

PG - boo to car and how frustrating not to lose weight despite high volume of training. 

Kinsey - i have taken the boys to that cinema once, they loved it!

Brookie I have NO desire to see 50 shades, good luck on your long run, hope you escape the storms. 

JG - will be thinking of you on Monday. At my Nans funeral my aunty asked all of us for our favourite memories or stories about her so she could say something personal which we could all relate to (like her frugalness and how she could keep a secret). 

lotte - i thought your diet had been holding you in good stead so hopefully it is a blip. 

CC - fab pics on fb, looked like Wales! 

RF - fink is killing me! How are we going to keep increasing week on week for another 4 months!!!!!?????? 

Thanks for all your support about my shite mother, she has withdrawn from my sister too since sis bollocked her for getting her husbands bungalow valued without him knowing. 

I am struggling big style with my IM training plan, need to do 2 hour run tomorrow to bring week total to 11hours but may do hour run and hour swim so i can actually spend time with the boys. Legs really tired from a 43mile, 3 hour bike ride today.
