Happy Monday! Needed to cheer myself after a weekend of trying to book a Covid test for my 7 year old that started to cough. On the bright side, I was actually put off when I tried to eat a burger and chips in a moment of weakness.

Hope the little one's OK?
Would you like to join us on the Daily Diary and post your menu for tomorrow? Here's the link, I hope to see you there x
Yeah, he’s fine but can’t go to school or work without test. Finally did home test this morning, so now a wait for results.
I appreciated the meme 😂 hope it's a negative test result 🙏🏻 keep going on the healthy food choices. You got this 💪🏻
Well done! Hope he's alright. Only had 2/3s of my y8s today. Scaring me!
I've been terrible this weekend and not slept enough either. Parents Eve tomorrow, too. Trying to work out if I can find energy to cycle in. Have not been monitoring my eating at all. Can't even remember what I ate 😂 need to find the re-set button but it's lost under the marking!
Are you going well despite the covid scare?
I feel your pain, apparently we had 79 kids off today. That’s across whole school, just everyone freaked out if their kid coughs or has a temperature. Problem here is no tests, parents spending hours refreshing website and no home tests either. I’ll be glad when it’s all over, roll on the vaccine!
Make sure you are taking care of yourself, not all heroes wear capes 😉
Sounds like quite a weekend! I hope everyone is well and the whole experience wasn't too distressing for your child (or you)... It's so tricky to be healthy when there's health concerns like that going on.
Thank you, no fun trying to get a 7 year old let you “tickle his tonsils for 10 seconds” and then “tickle up his nose for 10 seconds” with a giant cotton bud. He said, I just need to be sad for 10 minutes but cheered up when he realised that he has a few more days off of school.
Hope your little one is feeling better.
Good, fingers crossed! 🤞
Hi Sarah, I should be following you ! I wish I could say I lost 2 stone or 1 stone or even 100 grams... hoping the test comes back negative for your little one.
It will happen, just keep coming here. I take it one meal at a time. I’m not one of these super dieters, just being sensible.
I need to discover what sensible is for me.
Well, if it helps I’ll share what changes I made. I stopped eating takeaways whenever I couldn’t be bothered to cook. I stopped buying crap snacks, if I don’t have it in the house I can’t eat it. I have a rough plan of my meals for the week. So I know what dinners I’m going to have but not a particular day. I try to drink lots of water because sometimes I’m not hungry, I’m thirsty but forgot to drink. I cook from scratch but must be things that take no more than 15 mins prep. And like I said, I take it one meal at a time. If I mess up, I just make sure the next meal is a good one. Forgive yourself, you are doing the best job you know how. 😀
I hope that you managed to get a test done for your child and it is negative.
Good work that you managed to resist a burger and chips under such stress.
Hi, managed to get home test and am waiting for results. 🤞🏻
Thinking of you x
Just got results, negative! Such a relief!
That's great news. My daughter and granddaughter's tests came back negative too. Its such a relief.
