A little about my previous weight

 I used to weigh around 10.12 when in my 20’s then after my first child my average around 12 stone .
After having my second child and going through some personal emotional things this is when my weight got out of control.

I weighed at my heaviest 201.6 pounds/ 14.4 stone I realized that it was making me very un happy as I never weighed so much until I let my self go.

November last year I got on with my healthier lifestyle and now the journey continues.
I eliminated the things that made me lose my way from my life the negative energy.

My goal weight is 11 stone anything below this is a bonus and I intend on keeping the weight of hence me eating well and exercising.

My children keep me young and on my toes and I am so thankful for my blessings.

Today I am very bored of just eating eggs and chicken (not too keen on red meat) so much I have decided to think in advance about my Dukan dishes and get more creative with my (Attack Phase) ingredients.

Because there is not much variety at this stage you can get bogged down with cooking large batches of the same type of dish then eating and becoming bored.

I have planned today to make mince meatballs baked in the oven with a low fat yogurt and mint dip for lunch and for dinner I am going to cook chicken tikka with my low fat yogurt and spices and more of the mint dip on the side.
I will also grab some more fish this week.

I will post the pictures later today and update the recipe section later this week also please keep an eye out for my updated vlog on yuoutube this week..

Lavender oil

Lavender is the best I have not been sleeping well when this happens I always go and buy some lavender oil…

A few drops on mine and the kiddies pillows works a treat and we always get the best nights sleep…

Lavender Oil Health Benefits

Lavender oil possesses many health benefits including:
  • The Nervous System: Lavender has a calming effect, so it excels at helping treat stress, anxiety, depression, and migraine headaches.
  • Sleep: Lavender oil can held induce sleep, so many people with insomnia find use of it.
  • Pain Relief: Using lavender oil as a massage oil can prove to remedy the pains of muscle tension, arthritis, sprains, and general muscular aches.
  • Urine Flow: Lavender helps produce urine. It restores hormone balance and reduces inflammation of the bladder, and sooths cramps caused by urinary disorders.
  • Respiratory Disorders: Lavender oil is used much akin to the way a vapor rub is used when treating colds, coughs, the flu, asthma, congestion, bronchitis, laryngitis, and tonsillitis.
  • Hair and Skin Care: Lavender oil can be useful in getting rid of lice and nits. For the skin, lavender is used as an antifungal and antiseptic agent. Lavender oil can be used to treat various skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and other inflammations. Since it aids in forming scar tissue, lavender oil can also be used on wounds, cuts, burns, and sunburns.
  • Digestion: Lavender oil increases mobility of the intestines. Lavender oil also quicken the production of gastric juices and bile. This can help treat indigestion, heartburn, diarrhea, colic, vomiting, and general stomach pains.
  • Immunity: Regular use of lavender oil, like Vitamin C, can help build a resistance to diseases.
