Hi all,

I am feeling a little nervous!!

I mentioned earlier that I had a conference next week but as I was struglling last week I wasnt sure whether I would go onto re-feed.

Well, I feel much better this week... I havent been perfect but no major slips and still perfecting my LT will-power!

I contacted the organisers this morning and told them I wouldnt be requiring meals next week. It took some explaination but I simply said I was on a severely restricted diet and would supply my own food if they would ensure I had a plug socket and coffee to hand!!

Its a bit of a decision as with LT I find I take 1 day at a time..... this means I have taken 5 whole days in a chunk!!

My biggest concern will be Friday when for the most part I wont have access to a blender. I will try Elle-Em's trick of making it up in a 500ml water bottle!

My daughter is coming with me so she will know what the score is and will gee me along.

I am a bit excited too, that I have made such a decision!!

Its early starts and late nights supervising young people so I know its going to be challenging on many fronts (I dont like early mornings!!! LOL)

I go back on placement the following Monday so hopefully my uniform will be hanging off me!!!

Hurrah - if you can find a proper shaker then so much the better. Even a wide beaker with a lid (which is all the shaker really is after all!) would be great, check supermarket/pound shops for these. Getting the powder into the bottle is NOT easy! buit can be done.

Are you exhibiting at the conference or attending as a delegate?

Well done for making the decision; you'll feel so much better for it!

If you can get hold of a shaker that would probably make it a lot easier for you! They have some pretty cheap ones on Amazon; which is where I got mine from because my Pharmacy doesn't have them apparently.

Good luck!

well done t. think of all the choices you won't have to make !! I don't use a blender at work and i work full time. i have mine in a lock and lock tupperware (airtight!) container - I tried the bottle thing but it was way to messy for a clumsy mare like me !

Here is a link to the same one as mine - on ebay, buy it now - 1.99, 1.50 postage - should be here for next week !! and you can keep it, in the car for when you are out and about in the future !!

Lock and & Lock Round 470ML Mixer Container HPL931H on eBay (end time 01-Sep-09 15:53:45 BST)
(hope the link works..)

Caren.xx all power to ya !!:D


Positivity is the key

Hi Theresa,
you go girl, delighted you are sticking with LT next week. Wishing you all the best. Enjoy the conference hope supervising all those young ones doesn't give you a headache. Take it easy.

Good for you hun.

Do get a shaker, either one from those places they sell bodybuilding powders or a Tupperware quick shake (there are 2, a bigger screw top one or a slightly smaller one with a drinking spout - I use one of these when I'm out and about)

Enjoy the conference.



Life is not a Rehersal!

Hi T

Go girl!! Well done you for making the decision...you obviously took on board what other said and then made your decision. I think you should applaud yourself for this. That type of determination will take you a long way...still take it one day at a time, dont think 5 days incase that just throws you off course entirely, but I dont think it will!

I am so pleased for you and I hope you enjoy the week and also the time with your daughter!

I hope you are rewarded with a uniform that is far too big! That would be lovely for you and you would deserve it so much.

I hope you are able to get a shaker as it will make your life so much easier.

Take care

Thanks guys!!!

I already have a shaker but I am not too keen on it but it will do when the going gets tough!!! I never thought about how I would get the powder into the bottle..... LOL

I like my shakes with loads of ice so this is something I need to think about. I will have access to a fridge but dont know if it has a freezer compartment, most dont these days!!

I am going to get an ice cube tray to take with me so I have it to hand but again will play the whole thing by ear. I will also look for a funnel so I might be able to get the powder into the bottle!! Hahaha

My daughter is a delegate and I offered to go as a leader as this is all done through our youth club. I cant wait, 250 young people from Ireland, the UK, America, Korea, Africa and possibly some European states!!

Will be a crazy week but loads of fun! Lights out is midnight and the kids are supposed to be up for breakfast at 8am.... Bet they manage that better than me!!
