Hi girls,

Sorry I wasnít around yesterday; I was really under the weather. I donít know really how to describe it, just if there was such an illness as Ďrun downí thatís what I felt. I was shattered, really shattered, I went for a nap yesterday and ended up asleep for 3 hours. I was also hot cold, hot cold and shaky and everything ached and hurt and I had a permanent headache and felt sicky and weak. To boot my TOM came yesterday morning and that just finished me off as I had horrendous period pains (Iím sure they are getting worse! ).
I woke up at about 6am this morning, too hot and felt instantly sick and like my stomach was on fire and my eye socket was going to explode Ė okay slight over reaction but I felt rough, Alex got me some paracetamol and a drink and told me to sleep and one of my cats, Daisy (sheís very much a mummyís girl) must have seen I was ill cause she snuggled in right next to me and pressed her body up against my tummy, as I was curled on my side, and the heat from her body really soothed my tum and I fell back to sleep with her purring loudly (best sound in the world IMO ). I then woke about 9am this morning and I feel soooo much better! Much more human. Funny little illness.
I said this before but I really canít help thinking that if I didnít eat so well, take lots of vitamins and have such a good diet that I would have just had full blown flu. I went to work yesterday but left at 12 as I really wasnít feeling well and everyone had said Iíd gone really pale. So glad Iím feeling better, I donít get ill very often and so donít cope well when I do. All that said Alex is making a right racket at the moment so at this rate my headache is gonna come back with vengeance Ė he putting new chrome spotlights in our downstairs bathroom and the sawing of the holes is awful, I worry I'm gonna have a cealing of holes.

I had a Ďcarbyí day yesterday as I felt I needed to energy boost and I couldnít be bothered to prepare food so I just had eggs and soldiers for lunch (love it!) and then a microwave Ocean pie for dinner. Cals were quite low though, only about 1000 I reckon, tops.

So Kim, Nat Ė whoís fault is it that I came on my TOM 3 days late and practically the same day as you guys?! How funny weíve synced. Liz Ė any show of yours yet? I think, looking at my calendar I should (touch wood) just about miss my TOM whilst on honeymoon. Hereís hoping. (fingers crossed )

As you can probably imagine Iíve failed my challenge as I didnít exercise Wed or Thurs, booooo! I wanted to but Alex said no I was too sick and needed to sleep and rest and heís prolly right. I am going to try and do a gym room today, even a marathon if I feel ok. Iíve had multigrain brown toast and a shake for my breakfast (still eating the fibre early on.) and then got omelette for lunch (although I might have eggs and soldiers again!) and tuna salad for tea so should be ok although more a low GI diet rather than low carb which is fine for my digestive system.

Iím working from home today but only a light day and then tomorrow Iím off to see my brother in Birmingham but Iím taking food with me.

Finally before I go on to you guysÖ.Iím going on my Disneymoon NEXT MONTH! Waited ages to say that.

Amy Ė donít worry about a gain at this stage only worry about that Monday weigh in and you are doing wonders to get that one under control. Good exercise. Natalie never really bothered me on the shred that I can remember but next time I do it Iíll pay attention. I think number 2 is the hardest one of all the 3. That other extra, must be a regular exercise extra sheís also on the Gunnar Peterson workout. I donít mention that work out much because I havenít done it for a while, but if anyone is after a really fun workout, thatís the one for you. Itís a ball workout and its just fun. The other Jillian DVD Iíve got called Banish fat boost metabolism (my fav Jillian DVD) features a REALLY annoying extra called Kristen, she is obnoxious.

Rach Ė Yes, I love the swimsuit! Itís very flattering. It still clings too much around my belly but once that is a bit slimmer it will be fine. It wasnít big though and that was a 14. Itís a lovely shape though isnít it and quite retro? I like the strap too, think I might worry about it coming down without! I love having something like that that I love Ė canít wait to try it out! I now want some Rocket dog snackie shoes and Iím sorted, luckily I can get those cheapish off ebay. Did you notice Rach theyíd sold out of our cossie now? !
Congratulations on your new fluffy baby. The lion heads are amazing, they look like little teddyís donít they? I used to have Rabbits and guinea pigs growing up and I think it taught me so much on how to care for living creatures and how to be gentle, as a result as you know Iím a massive animal lover now so I think your children will really benefit from having their new baby.

Liz Ė how did you get on with your weigh in today? Your work sounds like itís quite stressful at the moment, that wonít be helping with your delayed TOM. Id honestly say with everything going on at the moment for you Ė stress at work, wedding worries going on (howís the invites going BTW?) stress of losing weight, doing a VLCD, worrying about TOM, and having a lot of the pill in your system, it would be much more likely that you are you are just suffering a delay in your TOM and nothing else but I do understand you are worried, especially with your history. Itís unlikely though hun so donít worry too much if you can. Iím charting at the moment and the window of pregnancy is so small, one day per month really and then a couple either side where chances are lower but still possible added to that the chances drop dramatically over 30, so youíd be very very unlucky to have it happen for a third time and so try hard not to worry. Easier said than done though I know.
You made a meat and taty pie! Iím very jealous that I couldnít have any, I feel its only fair that you should post me some.
Hope your tummy is a lot better, its awful being bunged up, makes you feel so sluggish and bloated doesn't it? Horrid, luckily my added fibre is helping me, hopefully you are a bit more sorted now?

Nat - poor Buttons and poor Buttons mummy for having to spend a small fortune fixing him! I know heís worth it though and heíll appreciate it a lot. That is pricey though Ė where do you go? You can sometimes get that kind of stuff cheaper on line so long as itís not a prescription. Donít worry about your weight until Monday, Iím sure it will be fine as your calories will have dropped so much anyway over all. Wedding purchases seem cool Ė any news from your dad and the booking?

Kim Ė good on you for sticking well to your diet and being committed enough to go and do the right thing even faced with some sticky choices. Just keep it up this time, díya here me? No getting bored after a week or two, keep goingÖ.. July next year is soooo close and you have Orlando in between then and now so you have to be on your A game when you can. Good on you too for not doing French Friday too, you will appreciate it on those scales. Just one observation, looking at your diet Ė watch your cals Kim and your fat, I know you were hungry yesterday but thatís quite a lot of cals and fat, if you get hungry days then you are best to try and fill up on things like meats or salad if possible rather than cheese, nuts and mayo. Congratulations on getting signed off on the home products and well done for sorting out the issues with that girl Ė always better to clear the air and will make your life much easier. I was like that with the wedding too, there was a huge lull in activity where everything was booked, deposits paid, arranged and then a huge gap - I kept thinking I should be doing something but really there wasnít anything to do.
Aww your poor stubborn little piggie off her food, bless her. They can be awkward sometimes canít they? I think its so hard when they canít tell you what they want either and you have to almost think for them, itís a big responsibility isnít it? Hope she comes round soon and starts eating again.
