Don't know why that happened .. but two really bad chest pains within a journey into town .. needed two stops, back rubbing and walking about to get rid of the 5-10 mins attacks!!!  Normally it's one medium attack, a bite to eat and that sorts it .. but eating after the first attack never helped and along came the second humdinger!!!  Another was averted in the middle of the night by glugging gaviscon!

Got rid of some of my excess weight!!!

By having my hair cut .. It needed drastic action as my illness and stress seemed to have turned my hair to straw!!!  (Not what I really wanted, but, needs must!!!)

Not much I can do about my sore dry eye patches .. apart from moisturise them (I think!).

 My mouth ulcers are being rinsed with Corsodyl daily and my teeth, well, they're just being brushed carefully!

I do hope everything settles down soon ... Fed!!!

Last night did a 1.2 mile walk average of 23 mins for a mile! Not too bad ...

Still feel a bit like an ostrich ... Head in sand and all that as regards to SW and healthy eating .. Kind of in the mode of 'if I don't know the syns of what I'm eating, then there aren't any'!!!!!  NOT GOOD!

Now tell me .. how do you feel?

.. Rubbish!
This is terrible at the moment ... I really cannot get my head around healthy eating ..
My body's falling to bits and I'm incredibly unhappy ...
Now, I know there are loads of people far worse off than me and I'm very lucky that my wonderful Hubby, Children, In-laws and Dad are very supportive and caring .. but, I'm so low!
I've a mouth full of ulcers, my eye's have gone dry, red and puffy, my teeth hurt, my hairs turned to straw ... I still need my painkillers and last weeks weight gain really was a blow!
Needless to say I'm here tippy tapping on my keyboard rather than attending SW .. I just can't face it!
Why oh why can't I do this?!?!?
I've planned all the meals for the week again .. not got any chocolate (apart from two eggs for my Littlies!) .. not picked up any sweets ... let's hope it works for me this week ..

My Dad's at the oncology department this morning so am waiting on his call, and I'm about to walk to my hairdressers to see what we can do about my hair!
It's another week ....
Let's hit it!

Planner ..

Here's my meal planner ... I sit with all the recipe cards and decide what we're having, do the shopping with the meals in mind and what ingredients are needed.. then, when the shopping comes, depending on the use by dates, I slot them into the day pockets!  I keep my eye open for different meals that I think the Littlies will like too ... as I use the cards I sometimes make changes to the instructions or ingredients depending on how they turn out!

as you can see yesterday was SW Lasagne which was yummy!

I don't think, once again, that this week's going really well as I'm eating bits of rubbish in between SW meals!  Still, let's wait and see!
Been for a quick mile walk this evening .. 1 mile in 20.05 mins!

Happy Days! x

Another quick one ..

... me and hubby went on a walk last night .. another quick one ..  23.31 mins to walk a mile!  'Twas a tad cold and rainy but we enjoyed it... we stopped to look at the stars peeping out from the wafting clouds too, that's why it was a bit slower!

Tried and failed ...

... well I tried 24 hours without painkillers and it didn't work!!! I was most uncomfortable ~ Not major pains, just very uncomfortable ... my scar felt too tight, my lower tummy achy and a few pulley bits along the top that made me stop what I was doing!!! What also upset me too was the fact that all my other aches and pains were back too! Sore hips, sore back, sore thumbs! I couldn't lift my leg to paint my anti fungal liquid onto my big toe (another nice thing that's sprung up!!!). I certainly felt like I'd walked miles after out 1 mile walk!!  Oh I am falling to bits!

Where's my mojo ...

... I really can't seem to sort myself out! I'm so into eating sweet things!  My meals are SW friendly but I'm eating rubbish in between!  What's going on?!?!?

Phew! He's home!

Dad's home, they released him with strong antibiotics and the request that he goes to his GP and also has a follow up appointment in 6 weeks time. He's tired and weak but he says he feels ok .. had a terrible time getting back home though as the snow was really heavy on the south coast!  Relieved is an understatement!  Still not back in my SW zone though!!!

What a difference a day makes....

... My Dad was rushed into hospital Tuesday .. a suspected heart attack ... he's still there now though the hospital think he's only got a major chest and bladder infection (fingers crossed that's all it is!) though we need to wait until the infection has cleared before they'll do an angiogram to make sure it wasn't his heart ~ going in via his wrist because of his aneurysm. Get well soon Dad ~ I love you! xxx
Well what did I do???
Turned to chocolate! Ate so much I was sick!! Now that's not going to help anyone is it!! Why oh why do I do it! Two days now I've been eating out of control! Stress is rubbish when it comes to food consumption!  Goodness knows how many syns I've consumed these past two days...
Roll on Dad coming out of hospital! xxxx

1.5 lbs off .... that'll do me thank you very much ...
I reckon I didn't have enough super free last week ... but will try to do so this week .. nothing planned, so hopefully nothing to stand between me and the 'new stone zone'!
Last night we did a super speedy mile too .. well chuffed.. 22.52 mins per mile!

Fun Friday!

Alpen Light bar and a banana for breakfast ... then off into town today for coffee with the girls ... 4 of us today .. usually only the two of us .. so we all had a good chat and a giggle. Then a quick stop at Superdrug for a mask and leave in conditioner to sort out my VERY dry hair!  Then off  on a meander to get a top from a lovely lady near town .. I feel in love with the top but it's a size 16 so I said I'd have it and shrink down to fit into it!!! Got it home and it fits anyway! Yipee my first size 16 since I was about 16!!!!! Tee heee!
Homemade pea and ham soup for lunch .. nice but a tad too salty today ... I think I needed more water!!
A cheeky Chai Tea Latte (4.5 syns) with my second Alpen bar for my afternoon cuppa! Nice!
