Us Brits don't do so well in the snow! We know it's coming because it does so every winter, mainly in February, and yet the country still goes into a standstill. You often see people stocking up on milk and bread and when I say stocking up, I mean trolleys full! I am definitely not one of those people. I know it will be over soon enough and until then I will make snowmen and snow angels and be happy we actually have some snow in this country! But... I am in desperate need of some cat litter! My corner shop has ran out and I refuse to brave a long walk in the thick snow with a toddler and a Newborn!! Days like today make me extremely thankful for Amazon Prime. Otherwise, the cats will just have to have crossed their legs! I wonder if they'll actually get here in the snow?
It's only Tuesday today and I'm having a bad week already! Does anybody else have constant nagging thoughts in their head? My mum passed away almost two years ago now and I'm starting to really struggle without her. When she was alive people walked all over her because she was such a giving and loving person and I feel a lot of the time that she's still being disrespected in death. I suppose the only way I'm going to feel better is to express and share these feelings with the people involved but to top these thoughts off, my kids keep playing a game of who can out scream each other! If anybody has a headache, you can guarantee it is me!
Now who said being on a diet means you can't snack? It's a load of rubbish! You can have up to 3 snacks a day on my diet as long as they're under 100 calories each which is fine by me!
You may have previously seen my last recipe, Garlic and Parmesan Chicken; if not then please do so. It's a very tasty dish!
I'm not one of those people who love fruit, veg or any other healthy food at all. I honestly don't know how anybody fits in their 5 a day fruit and veg. I love to snack! I could eat a whole packet of biscuits or a large bag of Doritos in one sitting, maybe even both! It has never really bothered me as i have been lucky enough to get my mums genes where I don't seem to put any weight on. BUT since having two little babies you definitely get a lot of extra chunk in all the wrong places so now is the time for me to lose all this extra weight. Looking at me, you wouldn't really know as I'm good at hiding it by wearing the right clothes for my body shape but I'm not as confident as I used to be. Hopefully this dieting process will bring my mojo back and if you want to join me by getting healthier and bringing your confidence back too then please feel free! Also don't be afraid to send me your recipes that we can all try together too!
Having a new baby can be very challenging, especially if you already have other children to take care of so I decided to make you all a list (in no particular order) of the items that truly helped me after I had my babies!
