Hi Girls

I was really busy yesterday digging all the grass out of the rock wall outside of the house so i can put some flowers in i thought i'd better finish it as i'd already done half and then gone on to something else i've still more old grass to dig up at the foot of the wall today cos i'm trying to expose as much natural rock as possible ( less mowing to do ) then its back to digging in the crevices to put in my plants. I overloaded the wheelbarrow with all the crap i'd dug up yesterday and i could'nt drag it back up the rock path so i got hubby to help me this morning before he left i thought for a minute i'd have to unload it today i'll only half fill it before i dump it out

The "diet" is all to pot that did'nt last long did it? hubby spent all Saturday with his mate wining and dining while i was out killing myself cutting down broom bushes when i realised he'd buggered off i thought sod this i'm off to the mall and i bought myself tons of goodies to eat while i stewed I got through a big bag of Resens chocolate caramels, a big bag of Werthers Chocolates and a 100g Dream Bar what a and i enjoyed every bite so this morning my good intentions are back and i'm in "trying to make ammends" mode

Hello am back. We decided last minute, like the minute I walked in the door from work onFriday evening to go up to mum and dads caravan in Kenmore. Is about 70 miles away form where we live and it is beautiful, the caravan park is right on a river next to the loch and the boys have a ball because they get to run riot outside from the minute they get out of bed until they are so hungry they are forced to come back to the caravan. We had everything packed and ready to go in under half an hour, not like us and even better the boys have stayed with mum and dad up there tonight as they are off school tomorrow as well

Have had a wonderful time, am sunburnt again, that's two weekends in a row think that is some kind of record for Scotland Am all rested and realaxed and ready to face the week. Was a squash in the caravan, as my brother (the sensible one) turned up as well, but hey it just made it cosier.

As for my eating - well that is another story, went totally unplanned with food and the village only has a tiny post office come village store, so I ate whatever, including queueing at the chip van for over an hour last night, but it was worth it. Have drunk far too much and will need to dry out over the next few days. As for the scales, well they will tell the truth on Wednesday, it will definately be painful

Have been an angel all day Will need to polish my halo so it is brighter than Cathy's.

I need to get myself to markies for some of these count on us chips. Am having a read day today and am determined I am going to stick to it all day. I really fancy an early night tonight, will get the boys scrubbed and ready for school and then have a long hot soak.

Off to watch Eastenders, Janine is going to be arrested for Lauras death, should be fun to see her get her come uppance

Am having a 'why am I doing all this' evening. I know it is because I had a wonderful weekend, eating and drinking whatever I wanted and today I am back on plan. But now it is evening and I am exhausted and I want a glass of wine and a bar of chocolate. I know it is just habit getting the better of me, because this is what I have done for the last few nights and I enjoyed so I want to do it again.

Is dead sad really, but they say misery loves company, so I'm going to finish typing on a cheerful note and switch the computer off so no one is forced to join me in my pity party.

There is no hot water left for my bath, typical the boys have emptied the tank

Off to bed with a cup of hot chocolate, need to work out the syns before I have it. Have only had 1 syn all day, thought I best make up for the weekend a little.

I will be back to full strength and stamina and willpower tomorrow night. It is weigh in and although I will have gained, I am big enough to cope with it.

All motivation and support and suggestions on what I can do with that easter egg whcih is still in my fridge, will be greatly apprecaited.

The cheerful note is that one of my friends announced yesterday she is 4.5 months pregnant. We are nearly 38 and she has 2 kids already aged 9 and 6. Although I would have loved another baby if it had happened to me a few years ago. I am counting my blessings that this little 'surprise' happened to them and not me. They are pleased about it now, but think it was a big shock when they found out.

I promise to cheer up for tomorrow

Night all

Come on Carol, if i can do it then you can i thought i'd never get back on track but yesterday is over with and it was'nt too bad and today is going well too i have'nt had any cravings (amazingly) so thats helping a lot.

hi girls,
Kirsty, hope you're pain free soon, Cathy, good luck with the job interview, what's it all about then? Carol, you're doing it cos you CAN and WILL. Read your reasons again luvey, you'll be ok.
I had a horrible afternoon today, found out I am being transferred to another classroom next year. Am not a happy bunny about it at all and have e-mailed my boss. SO I'll prob be fired as of tomorrow! Got right emotional about it too, unusual for me, but it was the sympathy factor people were giving me and telling me what a great person I am and how well I do my job. How come I turn into a blubbering fool when people give me the credit that I DO actually deserve?
Feel better this evening though, had a nice walk this evening with the dogs and have been an angel with food all day.
Hope to see Gloria's number's move down (just a little bit even) tomorrow
Off to bed now,

Morning

today is a new day, a weigh in one at that. had a sneaky peak on my scales and it looks like being a 2lb gain, but I had fun doing it. Hopefully today will be better than yesterday eatign wise and at least I'm whizzing around the country with work am just going to Glasgow today. Yesterday I had an hour to get from a meeting in Edinburgh to one in Glasgow the train takes 50 minutes so it was hit and miss but I made it.

Just came on line to check the syns in sugar puffs the boys are having them for breakfast and they look good. But the password has changed and I can't remember it so will just need to have weetabix and get the new password tonight

goodish morning folks still sore so a quick post then im off to lie down before i fall down CAROL you probably will feel better after youve been to your meeting i was a nervous wreck before i went last week and it turned out nearly all the class had put on or maintained and that made me feel a lot better iwas easier with the gain than i was with only losing a pound and if you need a reason just think of the shopping spree that you can have when you get to target keep smiling love CHRIS im like you always expect critisism even if we know weve done good and when you get a compliment you dont know how to handle it maybe theres a good reason for you being transferred maybe youve done that good a job that they want you to work your magic elsewhere aswell ? CAT good luck and knock em dead youll get it no probs VEGGIE get up rise and shine its a lovely day and if your already up enjoy your day right im off to bed speak later {after ive had my meds and can sit for more than five minutes
