Nothing much to say, blah blah blah!

Thought that I would just check in although, I have nothing of note to say. I have a program on in the background called Food Fighters, it's about environmental health and stuff like that I think, am only half watching, they've just shown lots of pictures of very maggoty fish, I think that it's put me off food for life! This isn't a bad thing!

I had a little revelation, this won't last, don't be alarmed! I bought lots of salad vegetables yesterday, chopped it all up and stuck it in the fridge so that it's there to dip in to when I need some, this is working really well, I dipped in to at lunch and dinner time and my husband (who is not a salad eater at all) even had some last night too so I will keep that going I think.

The scale was good today, I originally got 14st 8 (204) and then managed to squeeze a 14st 7.8lbs, I like it but I'm not sure I can really claim it!

Was meant to go to the gym today but I haven't, bad Alison. To be honest, this is my last day but one before the kids break up and I wanted to get some stuff done at home without any "help" and make the most of some time to myself. I've cleaned out the playroom which is a workout in itself! I'm picking up George shortly and this afternoon I intend to clear and clean Isobel's room, this is like a triathlon! Her room is a pit! I'm taking the kids to the zoo after we pick up Izzy so that will be a good walk too so I don't feel so bad.

Talking of Izzy, I'm touching wood here! Things seem to have settled a little, she moves up a year in September and has a new teacher, the teacher is very strict and I'm really hoping that this will continue to settle her. We got her report yesterday, it's pretty good and positive, I'm very pleased with her.

Happy Thursday x


  1. Morning..well afternoon for you!!

    Cleaning your childs room might just as well be a work out cause that is what it is!

    Good for Izzy. She'll keep it up. It's a tough age for some.

  2. Oh I was said your new to meat eating? What meats do you eat. I agree ground turkey and chicken can be pretty yucky...unless you like it. I am kinda off of it at the moment!

  3. I think we all need to take time for ourselves. Perhaps try to get a walk in later today if time permits!

  4. Glad things are evening out a bit with your daughter. House cleaning totally counts as exercise!

  5. I have a recipe for making ground chicken, turkey, beef, or pork chorizo. However our chorizo found here is different from the spanish cured choriza most commenly used there I think. Ours is like a mexican type sausage. And more like ground meat. Although I like both the mexican one is the type i have a recipe for.

    I love beef. But I like veggies too! :)

  6. Great report on Izzy!! Sooo happy to hear it! And I agree, house cleaning is definately a workout!!

    Great job on the veggie thing!
