Pics from Day 1 of 'stepping'.

Today I start............

my 46000 steps for charity.

I am going to start by walking home from work then my sis is coming round and we are going to go for our first walk around a local park.

I have until teatime Sunday to get all the steps in over a 46 hour period (thank god it isnt consecutive! lol). I can defiantely do it and I am actually looking forward to it. I am talking my family along for the ride for parts of it too so we all benefit from it.

Wish me look!!

Step on it!

Firstly, lost 2.5lbs this week so now back to being the lightest I have been for a VERY long time so yay me!

Secondly, suddenly realised today that I am doing my 46000 steps in 46 hours for a Breast Cancer Charity this weekend and I hadnt got any sponsors sorted apart from immediate family so I have been on the case today!!!

I am starting it on Thursday evening to be completed by Sunday, Splitting the 46 hours over those 4 days.

I have got my pedometer at the ready, my pink wig to wear and some very comfy trainers!!! lol

Walking with Dinosaurs.

Went to Sheffield Arena with my son Matt and we saw Walking with Dinosaurs which was so amazing! If I got chance I would go again. I think I was more excited than Matt and that is saying something. I sat gobsmacked the whole time.

A good day.....

My youngest 2 kids (Lolly and Will) were part of a dance display today in Sheffield city centre, they do street dancing, and they were bloody brilliant and I was very proud of them! x

Day 1 of trying to find my positivity!

I have stuck to my points today which I am pleased about, didnt manage any exercise but I am going swimming with my Mum and kids tomorrow and I plan on doing a few widths even though it is a fun pool.

I am still not back completely in the zone but I am getting closer and taking it one day at a time.

so far so good.

Well my negativity................

caused me to put 1.5lbs back on!

In the class tonight it was all about being positive and by talking about how I felt I realised that I became negative when I dropped into the 13's. I think I became scared of the thin person I was becoming. I knew who I was and what people expected of me when I was big and the thought that I could actually do this knocked me sideways and all the negativity flooded into my head.

I have lost so much so this week I am only going to make positive statements, I CAN lose this weight, I WILL be thin and I WILL be healthy.

A bit disillusioned in the losing weight mullarky!

Not feeling to great about this whole WW thing, I have pointed everything and even managed to do 1.5 hours exercise today but I just don't feel like I am going to have a loss this week.......

the problem is that I am a great believer in mind over matter, so as you can imagine that if I am feeling negative about my weigh in this week then I am more than convinced that I will have put on weight because I don't believe that I will have a loss.

Based on that fact I know I should try to be more positive as I do know this diet works but I don't want to try and force being positive cos that won't help anything either! lol Lose/lose anyone?

Small goals....

1. Get back into the 13's as soon as possible!
2. Lose half a stone within 6 weeks ready for Miranda's Hen weekend
3. Lose a stone by the end of September so I feel 'fab and forty'!
4. Keep up the Wii exercise but try and get some more walks in and get to the swimming baths.
5. Try more variety when cooking.

6. BIGGIE - At goal for Xmas!! Eeek!

All very achievable I think, so today is officially kicking my own arse day!!

Plan for tonight is, get the kids from school and feed them, do my Wii fit early, have tea with Andy, do home work with the kids then up to bed for them, get settled on the settee for an evening of TV, Britains Next Top Model at 8pm and the finale at 10pm with Torchwood inbetween!! Bliss!!
I am easily pleased..................!! lol

My ideal body............

While doing my Wii fit it tells you to imagine your perfect body shape and it got me thinking about what I would be happy with............... I have put some pictures of famous women who think have a healthy body shape.

I would love to have a curvy body and be able to wear all those outfits that those 40's pin up girls used to wear.

Andy would love this!!!

Had a lovely day with my friend Sarah, her daughter Megan and my daughter Lolly.

We went to Meadowhall and had a girly day, the photo of me in the greeny blue dress is from today and I felt lovely in it so I thought I would post it with the other one as 'me so far' pictures.

PS: put this one on cos I thought my boobs look good! lol

I desperately need to exercise cos I want to be in the 13's next week but my get up and go is on strike!!!

What is a girl to do?.........................................That's right, pull up another sun lounger and enjoy the sun!
