    Firstly i started back work today after 11months of maternity leave. I planned on an early night so i could wake up refreshed but mymind was buzzing all night thinking of things i needed to do so didnt fall asleep till gone midnight, my little boy woke me up at 4am and then i had to get up at 5.30am to get myself, my boy and my 2dogs sorted and shipped out before rushing to catch the bus at 7.15am. i didnt finish work until 8pm then had to go and collect my boy and dogs get him home and fed and in bed and ive only just this second sat down. i feel like ive been ran over with a 2tonne truck!!!! and guess what... i get to do it all again for the next 2 days
    the other big thing is i started my refeed today, thought id probably need the energy and boy was i right!!! ive never been a fan of salad as to me it tastes of rabbit food but today my salad tasted like bloody heaven on earth lol!!!
    hopefully il lose the remaining 5lbs refeeding now, or just by all the rushing about im doing!!
    well im going for a well deserved bath and an early night now i think, after today i definately need my beauty sleep!!

    Blimey....I was tired just reading that!!!!!

    It sounds like you deserve an early night, it will probably take a while for you to get into the swing of things!! Enjoy your bath!

    You must be exhausted - you are a good mum being so organised. How was the return to work and why did you finish so late?
    Have a wonderful nights sleep and I am so jealous of your salad - I love it and eat loads.

    If you continue with hectic days like that you will be wasting away. I hope things settle down for you. It's not easy coping with work and a family. Lol you even found time to post I hope you have a good nights sleep xxx:)

    Wow! And I thought my life was hectic!!!!! Just don't make the mistake I made - make sure you give yourself some "Me" time!!!! I'm like a headless chicken most days with my 3 children's activities and my jobs! Hence why I'm online at this time of night!!!!!

    Good luck with your refeed.

    Aw love ew! I am on my maternity leave at the moment and I am absolutely DREADING going back to work in September. Nevermind, it will be nice to have some money again I suppose! All my maternity pay I spend on milkshake! xx


    Best of luck darlin', that life was mine 20 odd years ago...!! But, hey! I've survived, and when you get into the swing of it, I'm sure you will too!! The weight should drop off you! Now I've a grandchild on the way, so my life will get quite a bit more hectic than it has been of late! I can't wait!!!!

    Thanks leanbean, i have to be organised or id forget something major-like the baby lol. the return to work was actually better than i thought it would be. i worked late as i have opted to do 3 very long days a week so i get more days free with my little boy. xx

    I did that for years and is definatley a good way to work it. Although the long days are exhausting the whole days off with your little man will more than make up for it.

    I remember my first day back after mat leave-that was 4 years ago!! Had to go through the first day of nursery, school since then lol, I couldnt sleep a wink, went back in to work looking totally washed out. I gradually started back on 15 hrs a week-now on 38hrs!!! F/T job, degree, 2 boys, this diet, its a wander Im still walking lol. Good luck, you will soon get into the swing of it.

    My addiction used to be facebook, I really go on there now, Im on here all the time!!! It's much better on here anyway lol

    luckily i only work 3days a week (hence the very long hours) so i could have more time with my little boy so for the other 4days of the week will be alot more calmer (other than the general running of the house) i applaud you on 3!!! you must be 3times as tired as i feel lol!! xx

    I know the feeling of no money, thats the only plus side of coming back lol, im now trying to pay off my credit card which paid for my shakes, well worth it though to lose the weight!!! and good luck in september, enjoy your time with you little one while you can xx
