Looking for someone/a couple of people who have a spare few minutes. I need to get some crap off my chest.
I am trying to follow slimming world on my own for the moment. Well, my mum and sister are following it as well. But we all seem to be struggling with sticking to it at the moment. My Dad was ill and in hospital, and several long days led to take-aways etc.
My main problems with sticking to the programme are:
- having a young child (11 months) - after having a bad night etc with her I just crave sugar!
- not really wanting to cook at the end of the day (again, looking after young child all day) - I'm not really a great cook anyway. My husband used to do all the cooking, but now its down to me! By the end of the day I just don't have the energy or creativity
- lack of planning (I think I should be able to sort this one out now. After talking to my husband tonight I shall be planning meals around myself and my daughter - instead of trying to plan meals we are all going to eat, he will have to eat the same as me, or sort himself out).
Also, I am a bit of an emotional eater. Things can be a little difficult at the moment with my husband (we're not fighting or anything, we just seem don't seem to get any time together whatsoever, and its getting me down). He gets up early for work, and so goes to bed early too. And I end up hitting the snack tin! Yes I know, I shouldn't have a snack tin. It's contents were bought when I was really tired, and on a sugar craving!!
Is anyone else out there struggling? Could do with someone to chat to? Have a rant about Husbands/kids with?
Be great to hear from someone. Mickey Mouse and Peppa Pig don't seem to have any answers!!
