Why is is that whenever I'm stressed or worried, I turn to bad food? Connor is sick today, been to doctor with him this morning and have been told to monitor him for Meningitis! Aarrhhh! Have to take him straight to the children's hospital if things don't improve by tonight! So, I had no breakfast cos I raced him to the doctor, I ate bacon and eggs for lunch with 2 pieces toast, a coffee with full-cream milk and sugar and a piece of lamington roll cake. last night at my mother-in-law's birthday dinner I ate hot chips, garlic bread and fillet mignon (wrapped in bacon and served with mash, which of course I ate!). I had such bad stomach aches last night....don't think my body handled all the carbs well and then I've been terrible today and I guess my excuse is that I'm worried about Connor! terrible excuse I know! I'm so disappointed with myself, after all my hard work. WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME GUYS?!?!?!
it isnt a poor excuse at all! we all know that when someone in the family is sick how worried we get and the last thing on our minds is eating correctly, half the time we dont have time to sit and think at all! i really hope he feels better soon the poor darling. i remember when heidi was only 7 weeks old she got bad gastroenteritis and it broke my heart to see her sick. so i know how hard it can be hayley. keep your chin up mate. you arent doing anything wrong purposely, you are just worried about your little boy. keep going with the fluid intake though to help wash all those toxins out. keep us updated
Oh Hayley I am sorry to hear about Connor mate...I hope he is feeling better soon...when our kids are sick our mothering instinct takes over full throttle and we would do anything to get them better. "I" is the last person on our mind when the kiddos are sick.
As Dolly said tomorrow is the dawn of a new day and a time to start afresh. Put the bad eating out of your mind and look on it that it is only one day. You could have also been sick because of the amount of fat that was in your diet and your body is not used to it, so it will pass. (I know that probably doesn't help!!)
You concentrate on getting Connor better and being there for him. My prayers are with your family at this time.
The ladies are right, it's too hard to think clearly about yourself and eating what's 'wrong' or 'right' when you have family ill or in trouble. Don't be so hard on yourself and focus your energy where it is needed most.
You will have time to get back on track and I know you want to get to goal by Christmas but the truth is none of us are in a race and does it really matter if we are over 1 week, 1 month. Nah, because you ARE going to get there.

Hi Hayley, what's the word on Connor? If I were you I wouldn't listen to the doctor, I'd just take him straight to PMH and let them do a blood test to see whether he has meningitis or not.
If it is Meningitis he'll need treatment immediately and Princess Margaret Hospital for children (PMH) is the best place to be.

I have to say I'm addicted to the espresso ones I get 7 of them a week! lol. I like the english toffee as well but they won'tbe around for much longer It's getting replaced with 3 new flavours, I know one of them will be Mango, I can't remember what the other two are now.
I can't stand the soups, blergh. I ended up taking them back and swapping them!!
Hi Kate (piglet) normally 3 days will show some results as that is when your body enters ketosis. The shakes are only around 210 calories and there is iodine in the shakes which also encourages the metabolism to switch on.
you can have a veggie soup
a vegetable salad
a couple of diet jellies
6 DD lollies
protein serve with salad or veg
2 diet shakes
