  1. 4.8 yesterday for fasting, yay! 5.1 for fasting today, boo! Went for a walk yesterday evening (to the chemist to get new needles, they call them lancets). Will go for a walk tonight this time to the shops to get batteries as the monitor batteries are running low (sigh). Thinking I'll trial skipping supper again and see how my fasting goes tomorrow, as that seemed ok for fasting last time. I'm not hungry then and don't think I really need it. Managed to juggle getting Matthew ready and having a decent breakfast at a later time, testing and snacks went fine at work, boss
  2. Had my first hypo today. Wasn't bad. My fasting levels were getting better, I've gone from 5.5 to 5.2 and today was 5.0 (need to be under 5.0 for fasting). But then I started getting really irritable before my post breakfast reading. We were out and about and I needed to take the test in the toilets for privacy at the shopping centre. Needed to be between 4 and 7, I hit 3.9. That's only 0.1 under right? But I felt off and was worried I was heading down. Grabbed a quick takeaway cappuccino with 2 sugars (17g carb) to up my sugars while hubby was distracting our son. Felt better quic
  3. Quick summary: I'm Taoin Sisu, I am a working mum 3 days a week, a SAHM 3 days a week and 1 day a week my gorgeous special needs preschooler is in childcare to be just me. I've done 2.5 challenges and had to abort the 3rd challenge when I got pregnant with my second child and morning sickness became too much. Current status: I'm almost back into the swing of things and currently at 20 weeks pregnant. But I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes 2 weeks ago. I made some dietary changes (it wasn't too hard I was basically eating healthy by then anyway) but I saw the

    Hi! And here's a gif: What worked best previously was walking every day and tweaking my diet, tracking my food and making my health a priority. Recently meal prep with support from NF peeps here has been great. But I just wanted to check in and say hi to the peeps because I won't be participating in the next challenge. In between pretty feral morning sickness and gastritis that can't be treated (because hey, still in first trimester) I've lost 5kg but not in a good way. Definitely not recommending the crackers and tap water diet I'm
  6. Thanks for the support guys! My meal plan included salads that I would pack in mason jars for lunch, which included baby spinach, home made pesto made of spinach and basil, Vegemite on crackers and hard boiled eggs for snacks, plus avocado, almonds all good sources of folate. I was hoping to introduce vegetable soup as well, so great excuse to incorporate broccoli, another good source. Plus I like chickpeas and have wanted to try home made hommus for a while now. It all sounds good, but morning sickness might throw it out the window. Unfortunately, I'll need to mix up m
  7. Someone just shifted the goal posts... Two things happened over the last few days. Firstly, hubby ended up in excruciating pain in his right wrist (he's left handed) progressing worse and worse with no history of trauma. Saw the doctor and he's got carpal tunnel syndrome. The day after he was diagnosed, I started getting suspicious that my period was late ... turns out I'm pregnant! (About 5 weeks) On the plus side, the meal plan I had set up for my challenges is actually quite good for pregnancy (I'm surprised how much folate I've included in my meal plan w
  8. Week 2 (for me anyway). I've made breakfast, lunch and snacks for the week and have just started logging again. I'm taking porridge with me to work and I'll eat there before I start work. Last week I stopped off at the café before work and would have a cappuccino with a breakfast wrap so I'll be cutting down on calories there. Plus I'll have an instant coffee. I'll fill out the rest of MFP for the week in advance while in the bus to work. On Friday I have to plan the meal prep for dinners for the month. I was meant to do it last Friday but just couldn't face
  9. Ok, so this week I prepared chicken salads and hard boiled eggs for snacks for my 3 work days. Now I'm off to do another couple of salads for my home days. Hanging out for my day off Friday. I'm in the slow process of tackling some organisation of the house/toys situation to make things easier and I'll be planning my meal prep for next month (shopping lists, etc). I also want to get started on a journal for my NFA stuff. Tonight I'm going to bed early. Kate finishes at work, little sleep due to wake ups from Matthew (thunderstorms and hot weather) and stress have exhaus
  10. When Matthew was born he had to be resuscitated 3 times and was in intensive care on life support for a month. When they're little and in hospital you don't forget it. But it's easier now he's 4 and walking, babbling (with some words and sign language) and generally being an all round charmer and goof I know meal prep is key. Man it's a pain though! Meanwhile next week is tackle coffee addiction week... hmm, maybe tea is the way to go... thanks for the idea! (And the support!)
  11. Thanks Bean! Every kid's quirks are different, aren't they? I guess after going through it with one it was easier after that? Thank you for the support, I really appreciate it.
  12. Ok, so end of last November, snack bang in the middle of the last challenge my 4 year old special needs toddler was in hospital for a tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy/grommet insertion, then a week later back in emergency for a post op bleed. And I tanked. Big time. I'd lost 2.5kg and then gained it again. But that's ok. This challenge is about taking it really easy and slowly. Putting into place some of the good habits I'd managed to establish before I derailed. 1. Meal Prep. 2. Logging calories. 3. Replacing coffee with water (can't do black, no sug
  13. Hi guys, I'm Taoin, I've done two challenges that were OK but the last one bombed and I lost progress. I'm hoping to respawn in this one. And here's a gif (if it works!). My reaction to 2017, summed up... I'm not sure what I'm looking forward to in 2018. I guess to get some traction on my goals, so I progress instead of falling back? I have a year and about 25kg to lose, I want to see myself at least 10-15kg lighter and see what a difference that can make? For what I fear, my toddler is more progressing to preschool at the end of the month and he
  14. Unfortunately we don't have a bath, but I did spend a whole, blissful 3 hours sleeping to catch up, yay!
