Day 7

So, one week over already! I think you can see, if you look back, I've been very honest. Are there any glaring mistakes you can see, so far? Apart from letting minor things get me down?

Today has been a more positive:

Mental Health:

I decided, today, I would start with a positive mental attitude, so I got up with the alarm and got the children up. Normally Mr. Ojo does that, I come down about 15 minutes later, when the children are eating breakfast, and we're on to the 50 billionth time we've tried to wake the teen. It worked. Even though I've had low moments, where I have over thought stuff, it's been a more positive day.

General Well Being:

Apart from the hormones going a bit crazy, and not knowing when anything is going to happen (The joy of being pre-menopausal), I've felt good. I got a bit tired, again, mid afternoon, but I stayed awake........bonus!


Today was my weekly dress making class, as I didn't have to take my sewing machine, I decided to walk. I think the fresh air, exercise and company, did me the world of good.


Breakfast: Beans on toast
Lunch: Bowl of Bran with Lactofree milk (added the link, in case any of my lactose intolerant friends would like to try it, very nice!)
Dinner: Steak cooked on the George Foreman, oven chips, onions and mushrooms cooked in soy sauce and garlic, peas and garlic bread slices. (I'd like to add, I really fancied a chippy, but am VERY glad I didn't!)
Snacks: Value crisps, 2 choc digestives. 

From the first week, I think you can see that life isn't simple. We have ups and downs, no one is 'normal', there is no normal. I wanted to chart this month, to see if anyone could help me out, see where I'm going so wrong. Or, if I'm not going wrong, is there anything new I could try?

The support I've had in this first week has been amazing, it's come from far and wide. I'm glad I'm charting this month, and if you can see anything of yourself in this, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. Support is the key to success, in my humble opinion.

See you tomorrow!


  1. You sound so much more positive today! Brilliant!
    I think I'm going to take a leaf out of your book this morning and go for a walk before I settle in for a day at my desk.
    One suggestion about your food: could you swap your lunch for a salad or something with more protein? The idea of bran for lunch seems more like a punishment than a meal! But also salad will give you vitamins and all that jazz. I'm jealous of your dinner, it sounds amazing x

    1. I am determined to be positive! I'm an odd one, I really do enjoy a bowl of bran haha x


I do love comments and read them all, please be nice and tboughful to others x
