    @AJB1014 I'm sorry you got yelled at. Something like this just affects the whole being. I hope you have a restful and rejuvenating weekend.

    Find peace and joy in your nest.

    Need a hug today. Got screamed at by my boss at work. Not even going to get into details because focusing on the stress is not going to help me at all right now. I'm keeping my head down and staying busy on the floor and out of my office.

    7. 10 minute meditation - RELAX TONIGHT

    Sending you so many hugs. It's never ever fun to deal with that kind of manager. I hope it never happens to you again!

    We're going out for lunch. Make sensible choices. Y(salad, white fish, vegetables, tiny chocolate mousse, black coffee)
    According to my rules, I can drink alcohol today but no more than 2 small glasses of wine. N ( wine plus small gin and tonic)
    Be in bed before 11pm. (Y)
    Also, did loads of cleaning so house looks and feels lovely to relax in!

    Today's targets

    Had a bit of a f-it Friday night as I let some frustrations over a couple of things get the better of me and I’m struggling this morning. I got up early to work out but couldn’t get started and then once I did, the kids woke up early and I decided I should help them get through some of their homework instead so they don’t have to do it all at their grandparents’ this weekend. And everything overran so I cancelled another hot yoga class. I’m annoyed with myself but thinking of my word for this year - balance - I’m trying to remind myself that one day this week with no exercise is actually fine and sensible. So I must let go of the guilt and move on with my day.

    Goals for Friday recap
    - morning run ✅
    - Phone bank re mortgage ✅
    - Run home at lunchtime for car ✅
    - Hot yoga after work ❎ really need to get back into this but am just wrecked in the evenings
    - Kids pack for weekend at grandparents and wash hair ✅
    - Early night!❎

    Goals for Saturday
    - rest day - homework with kids in am ✅
    - go to bank and sort payment
    - Eyebrow threading
    - Laundry ✅
    - Go to bf’s place for the evening
    - Take water bottle and remember to drink!

    Happy weekend all x

    Yesterday's commitments:

    - Log everything I eat :smile:
    - Stick to food plan :smiley: YES even though I was really tempted to buy pizza on the way home. We normally have pizza on Fridays but because of the burgers on Thursday I had planned not to this week to make back some calories. However on the way home I was sooooooo tempted to go back on my plan and get pizza. But I talked myself out and went home! Feel pretty good now.

    - Log sabotaging thoughts :/ No, I do need to do this - particularly catching up on the sabotaging thoughts I had with the cheese/burger incident

    - Savour every bite :neutral:
    - Monitor fullness after each meal :smile: Sometimes

    @Bex953172 Yes I am like an addict with cheese! You should have seen me with the cheese board at Christmas.... >:) Crisps are also a weakness...

    @Faebert Unfortunately the boyfriend is still working out how to get the cheese locker to work so it's not in place yet.... They don't actually really sell these things so I improvised by buying a wash bag with two zips (so when the two zips are together you can't get into it) and a padlock with a thin metal wire that goes through the zips. However he's having difficulty changing the code of the padlock..... There are actually proper boxes for these things (Lockabox) but they are massive and I didn't want it taking up the entire fridge!

    Crashing the partyyy.
    I started taking two lunch boxes to work, one for fruit/yoghurt and for vegetables. Need healthier dinner options though, but the boxes are progress.
    I need to eat more iron for my health, and I want to go back to donating blood.
    Want to lose 3 kg, and pick up running again.
    These are my goals for 2019.

    Great to have you here. Great goals for 2019!

    oh my God I cant stop laughing at this!
    although I could have done with this when I was pregnant with saskia. my first half was cheese obsessed (I'd eat a whole block in one go!) and then the second half of my pregnancy was pickles! oddly enough I didnt want the two together haha

    This is so funny 😂 it’s taking up half your fridge so that’s such a good additional benefit as stops you putting in other good too!!

    Let us know how your safe breaking skills improve!! 😂😂
