The diet and exercise update

So some may be wondering how it’s all going, with no update posts for a while?

Well, it got stopped. I couldn’t do it no more. Weight Watchers just wasn’t for me. I have a busy life with 3 kids, school runs, 2 dogs etc that i just didn’t have time to stand there weighing out all my food to get the right amount of points. Some recipes i still use from the website as i liked them, but the diet regime is none existent.

The exercise, well that has stopped too, the 30 day shred dvd has not been used for 3 weeks. The dvd player broke and as of yet has not been replaced. I am hoping next week to be back on this though! I am determined to get to the 30 day mark, the furthest i have been is around 14days, so nearly half way.

This weeks shopping has no Walkers big bag sensations crisps in, no chocolate, nothing. Instead i bought fruit and some nut treats. I have meals that are healthier and most done from scratch, with a vegetable soup for my dinner this week that will be homemade tomorrow morning ready for dinnertimes.
So the diet is kick starting but i am no longer following anything, instead i will be just eating healthier with the odd treats every now and again. Water is not much of a problem with me as as you all know i only really drink water anyway, no tea/coffee, click link for that post!

Lets see how i go with this one. Scales still don’t work well in the bathroom so i may not be able to see the results through that but i hope i see it through clothes fitting better.

Here i go again…


Cup of tea? No thanks, i don’t do hot drinks.

Yes that is my actual reply to that question. Most people look at me as if i have just swore at them.

How can you not like it?
How do you go through a day without it?
What do you drink?
Have you ever liked it?

My dad LOVES his cuppa teas, always at the kettle (and with that comes the toilet too). He must have atleast 1 an hour, the amount of times he is stood at the kettle.
My hubby is also a lover for tea, same as my dad. Can’t leave the house without one. ‘It’s only a cup of tea.’ I reply. ‘Lets go, hurry up.’ ”No Lynsey i’m not leaving the house until i have had my cup of tea!” ‘How can you not?’

”So what do i drink?” ‘Water.’ Shock horror! ”Coke, Fanta??” ‘Nope don’t like fizzy drinks unless there is some alcohol in it thanks.’ ”What! So you don’t drink tea, coffee or fizzy drinks? How do you survive?” Quite easily 🙂

I do like hot chocolate but need to be in the mood for it, which is once a month or so. Tea i have an ODD occasion where i fancy a cuppa, but that is once a year if that. I get an awful headache afterwards. I get asked do you want juice instead? Now sometimes i do drink fresh juice but only once a month or so for that too. I do go through fazes of having more of it in a month but i still have water in the day too.

The kids seem to favour water too, will happily drink it as a drink. They don’t seem to be too bothered about tea, and Thomas and Amy also can’t stomach fizzy drinks well and just say ‘Yuk’ whenever they try it. I am waiting to see if they will actually grow up to like tea. Jessica sometimes drinks the last drops of hubbys tea but i think it’s more the novelty of drinking daddys tea 😉

So that is how we none tea drinkers survive in life. Amazing eh?
