Posted in For the love of food, For the love of the body, This is MY YEAR

I’d be stuffed without breastfeeding

I didn’t fall too far down with Easter but I’ve not really recovered. I’m trying to get back on the 28 by Sam Wood band wagon but it’s appearing to be a struggle with my current lifestyle. 

That lifestyle appears to be pasta for lunch and dinner and hot cross buns, still!!!! Why won’t they disappear from the shelves?? 

What I’ve noticed about myself in the last week is that I haven’t been driven to talk to you guys. Ahem! I wonder why? No accountability, no problem is where my brain appears to be at. So I’m here now letting you know I’m struggling and having a little lul in my weight loss.  I’ll always be honest about my results at the end of the week so you’ll know full well when I’m not doing too well. 

What I do have on my side is breastfeeding. It helps burn up some of the extra energy if I’m over eating and keeps my weight down but it doesn’t stop me from feeling yuck if I’m eating crap food. I’m also noticing I’m not getting away with as much now as when I first started feeding. 

I’m finding that being attached to the program is keeping me from going off the rails but my lifestyle is not suited to such an overly prescribed program. It’s amazing in that it tells you exactly what to do and what to shop for but some of the meals don’t feed everyone so I have to work that out and a lot of the food Matisse won’t eat. It is creating extra work for me and the preparation time is time I don’t really have. I want to simplify things by keeping things flexible and follow basic rules like focus on fiber and protein and keep it light on carbs at night. 

Next month is looking like I need to work on my relationship with exercise. My body is desperately needing a good ongoing workout.

Hi! I'm Kate, I hail from Melbourne with my three loves, Willow, Matisse and my husband Dan. I enjoy staying active, attempting to be crafty, discovering new recipes and fun things to do with my daughters. I have found that becoming a mum has tapped in to this raw positive energy that I never knew I had. In this weird new world I live in I've found that I need to look after myself more to keep myself healthy and be a positive role model for the littler ones. Keeping this in mind has kept me on track to create the best me and be a better Mum. Well it's a work in progress but we all need to aspire to something right? I am also a writer, chugging away at that elusive novel but now is the time people. I am writing and you get to hear all about it, just joking, I won't bore you with that. If you want to know where I'm at please feel free to ask it might give me a boot to get me going in my less motivated of moments. I'm passionate about women's rights, equality, children's rights and mental health. I want to say social justice as a whole but it is so broad. I believe we all have the right to be the best that we can. I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing my crazy life.
