Oh minnie sue i hear you on the illness front and the effect it can have on your trip.

I too am heavier now than i was last year. I have found the only thing i can do to reduce my hips.. Well hips and butt and tummy is where at least 80% of my weight is .. Is either walk a lot or ride my exercise bike hard. And that is often very hard to do when i am sick..

The seats were horrible for me last time around too. I got up often just to stretch out and unsquish myself. I was lucky as we were close to the disabled loos and they had extra legroom to stretch out in...

My only advice is to take it day by day, stay positive and know that no matter what your goal or weight when you go, you are going to have a great time with your dd in the happiest place on earth.

you know, i wouldn't mind a fail cake if it tasted good on the inside and had really awesomely delicious frosting.

but these look cheap and nasty in all the ways...

i don't have junk food in my house any more. no biscuits, lollies, chocolate, cake, muffins, chips, cookies, muesli bars etc. i threw it all away to make it easier to eat good/ok food.

this is great most days.

it totally sucks when all i want is a hit of fat & sugar and yummy goodness which is right about now

Chicken kiev and vegies for dinner out at the pub tonight. Then I had to sit back and undo the button on my jeans once I got in the car

We only went out because DD gets her braces fitted tomorrow and it's a bit of a last hurrah for her (soft mushy foods for her for a while...). Where did my baby go???????

well i haven't heard back re: the job, am thoroughly full of ennui and just can't work up the effort to try with regards to anything at the moment.

99% of the time, i have a plan, i can see the best in life, i'm a glass mostly full kind of girl and i don't let the small stuff get me down.

not so much the last 2 days.

i bought donuts last night. cinnamon donuts. impulse buy, carlo ate most of them, but i have some zymil in the fridge and the last 2 donuts are calling my name.

sure, i'll have to spend 2 hours on the bike to burn off the calories, but oh sweet lord, i need me a donut.

bye bye willpower. hello yumminess
