No MumenTum..

It has been an awful week for me. Every time I've gone to do something I have been pulled in another direction by someone (namely toddler or baby related of course) which is extremely annoying.
I can't (and won't) blame it all on my little darlings though. My motivation has gone out of the window and I'm not sure when it's gonna bring its sorry ass home to be quite honest!

The past couple of days both Other Half and me have been totally run down with this horrid cold, earache and with Little Miss deciding to play silly buggers at 4 o'clock in the morning and Little Man teething I can honestly and freely admit to being darn right lazy with everything.

I am not myself at all and it is very depressing. I totally get how I am focusing way too much on the fact that I've had a bad week and not enough on making this week count but that just makes it worse in some silly way. Like I've made such a balls up this week that there is even more pressure to be 'good' this week.

I'm really struggling with my diet. I have a restricted diet (I don't eat meat, i can't eat wheat,gluten or dairy) so my meals bore me to death. I have books, I have looked online but the treats and puddings are proving more common and more fun to make! Not that I've made much of anything! I appear to be living off soya mince! Shepard's pie, spag bol...as I said last week I freeze this so I can have a good lunch or a dinner if I'm feeling lazy.

I haven't had take out this week which is one thing to be happy about. And I haven't stuffed my face on sweets or chocolate either. And I'm not sad about that. I do feel though that I have a million and one things to do (or rather I want to do) but am reluctant to prioritise them. Lets face it, yes i would rather blog and read a book, watch Eastenders, e-mail than pull out my exercise DVD...But then if I carry on I will be an overweight miserable sod who hates herself blogging, reading and watching Eastenders.....Ohh I think I've just found my motivation!

I'm linking up (bravely this week) with New Mum Online and the fabulous bloggers who are also on the journey of getting their tums back...I WILL get it back!!

  2. Hey there my lovely Cousin - you are list Queen so how about doing the 5 things you are grateful for each day - that way it'll help you focus on the positives. I KNOW you're a cookery/baking queen so I KNOW you'll find new foods when you're out of your funk.
    You're doing such a fab job and I love reading about what you're up to

  4. Don't worry about one bad week Hannah. I've also been sick but miraculously went completely off my food so the weight thing was the only good aspect of a totally c**p week. I'd be interested to know what your favourite dishes are for no meat, no wheat, gluten or dairy. I don't do meat and would like to try no gluten for a while but there doesn't seem to be much left to eat. Thanks

    1. Thanks for the lovely comment. Sorry you had a crap week also, wasn't as poorly as you though thank goodness hope you're much better now. I love spag bol using soya mince and veg, roast dinners are lovely and i still enjoy homemade yorkshire puds, omlettes with a side are lovely and filling. Hope there's something there x

  5. Geez oh it must be difficult to keep on track with sick babies and a restricted diet like that. Don't beat yourself up too much. Write down some achievable goals for this week - baby steps. x
