    Glad Bonnie is better :hugs:

    Went to see the volleyball this morning watched GB lose to Bulgaria. I found myself getting quite into it actually. Although no ome told me that we got to see two matches, so we ended up leaving early I feel bad for wasting part of the ticket might go again sometime though - we've got another 5 sets of tickets.

    Been to the gym for the first tome in a week. Didn't burn as many calories as I had hoped as I started to feel dizzy. I've not been eating properly the last few days (as in missing meals) as I'm having a few problems with my bf and because it's worrying me so much I just feel nauseous all the time and don't want to eat :s

    Hopefully I can clear my head in the next few days as it is getting on my nerves.

    You're so lucky you get to go and see some of the events Flo, very jealous!

    Woke up with a sore stomach this morning (And now the 'good' type of sore) so had breakfast, didn't feel much better so I'm going to try doing around 30-45 minutes on the Wii. Haven't exercised much this week (Need a kick up the bum!) so it'll give me a little boost.

    Legs feel like jelly! But in a good way
    Just realised I've only four small strawberries and a tiny bit of natural yoghurt left, so I'll have to go on a mini shop tomorrow. I'll have to have a really small smoothie tomorrow :L

    did about 25 minutes on the treadmill before going for a swim today. (was intending to do 30 but a boy I know came in so I ran away aha, yes I'm that silly)
    only did 2.6km in that time though so since I think 30minutes is a normalish time for a 5k run I sill have a long was to go and am pretty unfit haha. especially since I read people on this site saying you get better times and stuff on the treadmill since its somehow easier. Might download the couch to 5k pod casts and see if they are any useful.

    Just thought I'd tell everyone that Bonnie (the dog) is finally seeming much better. It took 4 trips to the vets, sedation, blood tests, xrays, anti inflammatories, a lot of pain killers and a drip... But she seems to have turned a corner (knock on wood). Thank god.

    So... Today we are having a lot of family round, so not really any chance to exercise until later evening. I'll probably go for a bike ride fairly late, but at least it'll be something. Bonnie slept on the end of my bed all night (she can finally climb back on again), and I caught up on some of the sleep I lost while up 3 nights in a row looking after her.
    I'll hopefully get back on track now. Although on another note, I think I LOOK thinner, especially in my tummy
    You'll hopefully be able to walk Bonnie round the park again soon, exercise problem sorted Big :hugs: to you and your pooch.

    I was just wondering if anybody had any good ideas for healthy diet lunchboxes - I'm starting a new job next week and then starting my PGCE in Sept so I'm looking for ways to keep healthy at lunch (and to save a fortune by not eating out every day haha). Sandwiches are a no because I'm gluten free and refuse to pay the ridiculous prices for gluten free bread haha.

    Any suggestions?
    They're not exactly healthy but by golly they're cheap http://www.foodbargains.co.uk/produc...1-16142-6.html

    Managed to get my calorie intake up to 1500 by having a cereal bar after the gym and a slice of toast with peanut butter in the late afternoon. I also has a weight watchers dessert as a treat, a bit carb heavy today but I don't care :p:

    Nothing too serious, just a sore neck and a twinge in my back. Suppose I just have to be more strict on the diet side of things now. Might try going for a jog tomorrow.

    I binged this weekend because I felt so low and stressed. I was doing well with eating so I'm disappointed with myself. Hopefully from tomorrow I'll be able to control myself a little better, and get out of the house a bit more.
