After initially starting my weight loss journey in January 2012 and achieving the 4.5 stone loss. Over this summer I have struggled badly with my food choices, activity and generally my motivation.
Now having some form of routine back in place and having taken time out putting my head back together has given me the opportunity to get the wheels in motion literally to get some plans together.
I now own a bike and a toddler seat! .. I have been out on it and although the initial ride out I was nervous, I am getting my head together to start using it almost everyday. I am even searching for methods to keep Joshua and I dry while doing the nursery run on a Wednesday and Friday morning, why don’t bike seats come with raincovers?… you see I have also got Joshua into a nursery as a small part of plan, taking him to nursery on my bike will give me the opportunity to do a circuit of the village too as well as catching up with the household jobs that were driving me nuts!
While putting it all out there so to speak I have to be honest and admit I am struggling with the food side of it all.
I have one toddler that eats everything like his mummy, a tween that changes preference on a daily basis and a husband that can be so picky I have to blend ingredients in order to add them to a meal. Here in lies the problem I am beginning to resent the whole meal time episodes.
Meal planning was going well with meals planned and ingredients bought in advance however these meals have been so well eaten that in fact we are all fed up of them and my kitchen prowess is certainly not to be marvelled at.
I must now spend at least 2 hours of every morning stressing out with what to make that there have been more times than I care to think about over these last few weeks that I have given in to joint meal co-operation … in other words Hubby dials and I plate up.
I need help I am so so useless in the kitchen .. apart from my one-off creation (Jaime Oliver’s Turkey Surprise) that I need quick, cheap and easily consumed by a picky hubby and awkward tween
Please send help …… I am frightened I will forever more be fat!
