Diet fail..

For anyone who read my last post about giving up chocolate.. Here’s a quick update.. I FAILED. And when I say I failed, I don’t mean I’ve cheated and had a few bits here and there, I have failed miserably! Whoever thought trying to give up choclate just before Easter would be a good idea? 

It’s about time I finally admit to myself that I have piled on the pounds since I lost most of my pregnancy weight. It’s creeped up on my slowly. Its not helped that we still didn’t have a mirror in our (not so new) house until this month, the batteries in our bathroom scales have ran out and my baby naps like an angel so we no longer go on daily marathon walks. 

To make things worse, two people have asked me wether I am pregnant  over the weekend. How rude! Even if you think it keep it to yourself! To be fair one misheard and thought I was pregant but one actually came up to me at a crowded party just to ask me. So it’s getting serious now. The month of April involves zero chocolate for me… This time I mean business. 

  

I’ve done something terrible.. 

Since my breastfeeding journey began, I have a sudden love for chocolate. I mean I’ve always liked chocolate, but I’ve always had it in moderation. But now, it’s like I just can’t control myself. Chocolate digestives are the worse, I will finish a packet over two days 😂😂. It’s shocking! I just don’t know why breastfeeding makes me so hungry and crave sugar. Or maybe it’s the lack of sleep…

Anyway, this morning it reached breaking point. I have managed to eat HALF a chocolate cream cake! What is wrong with me?! I actually feel sick thinking about it. Luckily I’ve not put on weight from my crazy appetite, but it’s meant I still haven’t lost the last stone of stubborn baby weight. And it’s so unhealthy, I’m ashamed! 

So anyway, as of today I am going cold turkey. No more chocolate for a month! Wish me luck..
