Complain, complain, complain

Why do I always seem to be moaning on this blog? I tend to be quite an upbeat person, but this blog just seems to be filled with my whining. Am I really such a glass half empty girl?

I lost a pound this week, after 2 weeks of busting a gut trying to lose, I lost 1 measly bloody pound.

I'm still so wrapped up in how far I have to go that I can't seem to stop and smell the roses and appreciate how far I have come already.

So it's 1lb to 6 stone weight loss. Can I do it this week? Can I be happy with whatever I lose, can I even lose this week? Can I cheer up? lol. I think I'm finding it hard as my son is on 2 week Easter holiday and I'm finding it so difficult to get to the gym.



Pea and Watercress Soup
Serves 4 2 points

1 tbsp olive oil
2 leeks, sliced
400g frozen peas
600ml vegetable stock
1 sprig of fresh mint
1 (100g) pack watercress
150ml semi skimmed milk


Heat the oil in a large pan, add the leeks and sauté for 3mins or until soft. Add the peas and stock and slowly bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 5 mins or until the peas are tender. Add the watercress and simmer for a further 2 mins.
Transfer to a blender, add the milk and whizz until just smooth or longer if you prefer a smoother soup. Gently reheat before serving.

I feel my blog is the same but I think its just somewhere to vent....we all need a time and a place to get our frustrations out!
Definately take time to smell the rose's because it REALLY is worth it - I know I keep saying it but you ARE amazing and truly inspiring not just to me but many,many people.....I just wish you could see it,feel it and believe it!

Even though I know youll hit that 6 stone mark this WI - I'll send you loads of positive vibes and keep me fingers crossed!
