When I started with Live Young Bootcamp back in July I’m not sure I envisaged the changes that were ahead of me. And it’s not just weight loss, as I try to always mention when I write about this journey. Yes, I am over the moon with the physical results and every week I am thrilled to see the inches continue to- slowly- disappear. 14.5 inches in total, if you were wondering. And while I would be lying if I said that didn’t feel amazing, I’d also be doing the whole thing a disservice if I didn’t mention how the other stuff far outweighs the shrinking of my body fat. Something is now happening to the whole family. We all want to #livewell with Co-operative Food.
I’m teaming up with Co-operative Food and following along with Jo’s 21 day food challenge in a bid to end fussy eating in my house. Eek. Thats quite a challenge.
Elsie has her own dietitian, thanks to her cow’s milk protein allergy (cpma), and it’s the same lovely dietitian who we saw when The School Boy was under consultant care too. She really is amazing, and really knows her stuff too. Back in March I told her about our family mealtimes and she gave me loads of really good strategies to try. At this point I was preparing and cooking up to five different meals every dinner time. The two little ones would have one thing, The Big One another thing, and Ghostwrirterdadddy and I separate meals too. And then i’d make another meal for The School Boy when he refused to eat the first meal he asked for. It was a nightmare! And we were weeks away from weaning Elsie too, so it was only going to get worse! So we adopted a plan. (more…)
