Chin up Lou. It's a rough patch (we all have them) and soon enough you will be back an raring to go.
Today I am trying to get prepared for next week. So far I've made a portion of pasta with stir fried veggies and prawns, 2 x portions of a rice dish with stir fried veggies and prawns, 4 x portions of spicy butternut squash soup!! Just about to make some carrot and coriander soup as well
and tomorrow i will be making some butternut squash risotto and some cous cous with onion, peas, sweetcorn and peppers! i think lunches are sorted for a while lol.

I've done a big food shop today to come tomorrow and made a list from the recipes out the mag to try abd get me motivated again. It's hormonal I know it is. I'm just staying a bit quieter until I can stabilise my mood a bit.
Glad to see your doing well hun xx

Don't fret Lou - I know you won't let your hormones beat you in the end! it's great that you have sorted out a food shop.
What recipes are you trying out? I haven't made up my mind which ones to do yet....

I fancy doing the sticky beef with noodles (bf loves all that sort of thing), the pizza and the beef wellingtons. Herb crusted pork and Cous Cous looks quite nice too but need to do that when bf isn't around as he doesn't like Cous Cous.
Here is the recipe i used for the BNS soup - i halved the recipe and just used fry light instead of butter/oil. BE WARNED ITS VERY SPICY. I ended up putting in some more stock and some potato to try and soften it a bit. if I were to make it again I would use less dried chilli.

Today I have been great so far; starting afresh all week before a girlie weekend away that I a) dont want and b) can't afford!!
Cereal for brekkie, prawn and rice dish with veggies, fruit and yoghurt for lunch with velvet crunch (4) and a Nescafé latte macchiato (5.5)
Chilli for dinner tonight as well so no further syns planned.
Money really getting me down (or should I say lack of) so hoping I don't slip!!

how was your exam lou? hope it went well!
I was back on plan 100% yesterday - spent my syns on a nescafe latte macchiato sachet (5.5), velvet crunch (4) and a little bit of ice cream after dinner mmmmmm (5.5). Feeling tired but good in general. Having a green day for a change today brekkie was weetabix and milk (A&B) and a macchiato again (5.5 - I seem to be getting into a habit of having these!!). lunch is homemade soup with a WM roll (B), fruit and a yoghurt. Dinner will be either an omelette with ham and cheese and some SW chips or a jacket potato with some roasted veg cooked in harissa pasta.
How is everyone getting on? LOOLA WHERE ARE YOU???

Ahhh god I had a COMPLETE BREAKDOWN yesterday!
Things have been building up recently and I have been feeling so stressed out with work, money (or should I say severe lack of it), this stupid girls night out I have been forced into this weekend and then yesterday the very girl who forced me into it announced that she isn't going anymore!
Great - thanks a lot! I could really have used the money I will have to spend on things like....I don't know....my MORTGAGE!!!! Argh I am so annoyed! I only agreed to go because she was going. I get on well enough with the other girls mostly but they do turn into rowdy crazy people when they have had too much to drink! So I am not happy about it (although she has good reasons not to go and i totally understand them). I guess i am just mad for not sticking to my guns in the first place and saying yes after much persuasion.
I have been working such long hours and I am not sleeping because I have so much on my mind! This weekend has been the undoing of me and i spent about an hour on the phone to a friend in tears last night because I just can't cope without any sleep any more! Even sleeping tablets aren't doing the trick!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
Today I feel a little better but I am just not in the right mindset for SW. I really need to get this weekend out of the way (and get paid) so I can really take a look at the mags again and make some meals plans. I am going to try to relax a bit over the next few days and not get stressed about SW on top of everything else. But I am also not going to have ahuge binge and eat pots of pringles, chips, pizza etc! I just need to let go a bit and start again I think.
Hopefully you are both doing a bit better than I am?

Why don't you just not go at the weekend? Instead of stressing yourself out about going and spending money you really don't have just say your not going. It's silly to spend money on booze when you can't afford to buy food?! And if your mates don't understand then tough, let them fall out with you...they aren't friends worth having if they can't understand that you prioritise food over alcohol. I'd think my friends are stupid if they chose a night out over bills and food x

hey guys i am still here, just! i havent been to SW for like 5 weeks now i think, i have started again on monday and will be going back to class on tues, god knows what my weight is now work is no better, in fact is getting worse, i did 30 hours in 2 n half days!! 18 hours in just 1 day then 12 the next night! health is certainly suffering as my diet, need to see a neurologist for my back and leg and i am also facing the possibility of surgery on my Jaw (although that should stop me eating!) so i have not been keeping track of my diet at all! i haven gone mad like gone back to all my old eating habits or anything, but i havent kept count of syns, i havent ,easured healthy extras things like that, but i know ive gained, i can feel it and see it! i want to exercise coz i know i feel great when i do, but im just soooo tired all the time! as always i know what i have to do, its just teh putting it into practice thats the problem! but i have been a SW saint since monday, so hopefully on track a bit more! im gonna buy a 6 week countdown when i go on tues too to keep me motivated to go. anyways that enough about me lol
sparty, if theres a few of them going tis not gonna make too much difference if you dont go, u could "just be ill" that day...or you could go, let ur hair down, have a good time, drink a bit and have a good nights sleep...but i have to agree with Lou, spending money on a night out when ur stressed over lack of money anyway does seem pointless and that it could just add to ur stresses! i know completely how ur feeling, iuts the only reason im working the hours that i am, i NEED to hope ur ok! you too Lou, hope ur ok, well done for gettin on the course X
