I had this wonderful post planned earlier, but now that I'm actually sitting at the computer it's all gone out of my head. So I'll just say where I am at the moment. I'm back on phase one of the south beach diet.

I need to check out our leisure centre's opening times and see if I can start going swimming before I go to work on the three days I work in school. The two days I look after 16 month old I start at 8 and have the leave the house at 7.30ish so I don't think I'm gonna manage to swim on those days. However I don't have to be at school till 9 so that feels more do-able. After all, last year when I was living away from school I used to go swimming before work, and that was when I had to drive half an hour to get to work (I would leave the house before 7, which to me was early!)

I'm trying to get myself back into getting to bed earlier and waking up earlier. The clocks went back for us in the UK last weekend (so 10pm became 9pm). It's the whole going back to GMT after being on British Summer-Time. Anyway, My body still seems to think it's an hour later than it actually is, and I'm in not rush to un-confuse it. Well if it thinks it's after 10 and it's actually only after 9 and I go to bed that's got to be a good thing right?!?!

Um, I'm also wondering whether I ought to start posting what I'm eating every day as a way to stay accountable. I'll think on that a bit longer before I make a decision.

Oh, and in other news my Mum had officially lost 10 pounds in the last 3 weeks. That's another reminder to me that if I stay on track good things will happen!

My husband and I did South Beach in 2004. As far as breakfast, I don't like scrambled eggs but turkey bacon isn't bad. We lived off of sugar-free jell-o in the evenings as our snack/dessert. Do you have that there?
