Urgh, right now it feels like greater pressure- on top of weight pressures- to not be able to actually admit I'm feeling down about my weight going up!
The last few weeks have seen my usually pretty healthy way of eating go to pot, with lots more sugar finding its way into my diet from celebratory cakes to afternoon teas and far too much champagne (with my recent 10th wedding anniversary, my brother's engagement and baby cousin's birth)- making me feel sluggish, tired and really not my best, physically and mentally.

Changing my diet over the last few months back to a low GI way of eating-so slow releasing, healthy carbs, good quality lean protein, whole foods, dairy, fish, fruit and vegetables with treats every so often (basically MODERATION) has made me so much more smiley and I've got tonnes more energy to boot!
