It's been a day and a half.
Had my epidural today and plenty of steroids so I am hoping this will take effect on my back over the coming 2 weeks. That's what the head honcho consultant told me anyway. They were fab at the hospital and made me feel very at ease. Hasn't happened before. So big fat thanks to the Staff at Greenwood Ward at Stamford. I love you all. I think I may have had plenty of pain relieve today !!!!!!!!!
Came home and had a nice light lunch, salad and tuna, prepared prior to hospital visit and yogurt. Very tasty and finished off with a piece of fruit, doing really well and proud of my self as before I would have scoffed every rubbish in sight because I felt tired and achy.
Then my 2 younger daughters arrives and lo and behold they bring one of my biggest weaknesses da da .......... A lovely crafted Costa, yes I did say Costa Strawberry and cream cooler, and oh no it was not just a medium like I used to buy but a great stonking big one. And because I'm not a rude mother I unfortunately accepted gladly. A gift is a gift isn't it !!!!!!!! If I could have leapt I would have thrown myself on the lovely thing. And yes I know they are a billion calories. That's why I've given them up.
And to heap the misery upon the diet they also came with choc chip hobnobs. I only had 1 and when they went I made them take them with them. Bless them they thought I was sharing.
Families are very hard when you ae losing weight and there is a hard balance to find between keeping up the good work. I know that I want to be fab and 50 so I cannot let one slip shove me down that road again.
I have had a lovely tea of left over heated up chicken korma - home made and calorie counted from the other night. Bit of a numb leg so that was about all I could manage, very nice though.
Tomorrow another day with no Costa planned, thank goodness.
Have a great weekend all and remember be kind to yourself
