Had my hair done...........

and broken my glasses on the same day! lol

I am gutted about my glasses, I have had them for 4 years and the frames only cost me £19! :0( Oh well maybe it was time for a change........

My hair is a work in progress, I have very dark hair but have started to get one patch of really white hair, I would love to grow it as it would look really cool but I am impatient so the plan is to lighten my hair so the white blends in and then when it is the same length as the rest of my hair I will go back to the rest being dark and have a Mallen (?) streak. My Grandma had completely white hair and I loved it so I am glad that my patch is white and not grey.

I will try to put some pics on later.

Maybe I need to give myself a complete make over and get some new clothes to match my hair and glasses (when I get them!)?! .................... lol

I am made up......

because I have lost another 2.5lbs this week!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!!

I am so far on this wagon I am actually helping the horses pull it along! lol

My sis and I even went for an hours walk before weigh in as part of our training ready for our walking half marathon. I didnt even turn to food when that stupid girl in the shop was so mean to me. I feel so good right now! lol

Happy, :0)

Confidence knock.............

I am well peed off, went into New Look and went and tried on some 16 jeans which fit but were too short, I handed them back to the girl at the dressing room door and when I said they were no good she said 'I thought you were wishfull thinking when you took that size in'!!!!!!!!!

I was gobsmacked but not for long, I went and made a complaint and got a fiver off the top I was buying! Cheeky cow. I feel like sh*t though now. It has really knocked my confidence....... :0(

Sunday night......

and this is the time when I feel either happy or pissed off, the reason for this is because if I have stuck to my points I am happy and if I havent I am annoyed. The weekends for me are the hardest for sticking to my points, this weekend has been near perfect in that I went over 2 points last night and 1 tonight but I have been on the Wii fit for a couple of hours too so hopefully that will counteract those extra points.

I will be happy with any loss this week but if I could get another 2 lbs under my belt I will be chuffed.

My walking training is starting this week too so that should keep the losses coming. Fingers crossed.

Want to eat.....

everything in sight but I won't!

I am 2 days into to my week and I have stuck to it but for some reason it has felt harder instead of easier.....weird.

It may be that I am just very tired today, I feel really lethargic and have no uummpph!

I am even tired just thinking about typing this never mind actually typing it.

I really wanted to go on my Wii fit tonight but I know that I won't get the best out of it so I am planning on going on for longer over the weekend as Andy is in London on Saturday so I can do a good couple of hours then and some on Sunday.

Here's to more energy tomorrow!

Lost 2lbs.....

so I now have exactly 50lbs to lose to get to my goal weight.

Phew that seems a lot but little steps.

Thats all just wanted to share. :0)

First weigh in after a week back on it....

is tonight.

I am really nervous! lol. I have had a good week, gone on a long walk and done 2 sessions on the Wii so there is no reason why I should be. I don't care what the amount is just that I want a loss......

I know that if I get a loss under my belt then it will start to get easier, the first week is always the hardest when you are 'returning' I think.

I am keeping everything crossed for tonight (which may make it hard for me to get on the scale!), I will post my result on me tonight.

Feeling good.....

I have managed to stick to my points for 5 days now and also earned 10 activity points today walking and doing my Wii fit. I would give myself a pat on the back but I am a bit achey! lol

It is amazing how quickly you get unfit if you stop exercising........won't get into that situation again......and weirdly the front of my lower legs hurt?! Not sure how I have managed that! lol

I will be sleeping like a log tonight I am sure.

So....lesson learnt, keep up the exercise and I will feel so much better all round.

Day 4.........

and I am so pleased with myself, I have stuck to my points like glue, if I can get tomorrow under my belt I will defiantely be in for a loss, fingers crossed.

It seems to have clicked back into place again now, I needed that weigh in on Tuesday to draw a big line under it and get into gear.

Had a WW epiphany......

this morning.

I was getting dressed ready for work and caught sight of my profile in the mirror and I got really gut has re-appeared......I was so pleased with how it was going down and now I feel like I have let myself down, I was all set to get my post Xmas weigh in last week but due to the white stuff I didn't get there and all I have done since then is eat......I think I have done more damage this last week than Xmas and New Year put together!!!

So that is this or be miserable............I have done so well and I seemed to be hell bent on ruining, as of tomorrow night when I finally get weighed my second leg of the journey starts, I am going to get a brand new card and begin as though I am a new member, I will stay to all the meetings and be inspired by my fellow WW and I will knuckle down to exercise ready for my half marathon.........

This is really something that I have to do now........


Friday, 8 January 2010


So very tired today, took the kids sledging last night which was fun but then Matt had a bit of a meltdown so the end of the evening wasnt too great.

I have not done well on the diet and I am actually looking forward to finally getting my official post Xmas weigh in (thats if it doesnt snow anymore!), I am also sorting the exercise plan I need to make sure I am fighting fit for my half marathon in April......that isnt actually that far away! Gulp!

Thats it really.......

I need my bed.........

Bloody weather!!

Just when things get back to normal the bloody weather ruins everything!!

Kids aren't at school so I have to work from home which means fighting the urge to eat all day and I won't be able to get my 'new start' weigh in tonight! My plan is to weigh myself at home and have that as my starting target, track all week and hopefully I will get to weigh in next Tuesday.

I hate being messed around! Harumph! lol

I heart routine!

Back to work tomorrow and I can't wait. I love having routine in my life. I have had a brillaint Christmas and New Year but I am more than ready to get back into the 'hum drum' and I say that with fondness......

Roll on getting up at the same time, taking kids to school, work, picking kids up from school, making tea, exercise, making pack up for the next day, watching Biggest Loser and the like then bed!!!! lol


Oh and I am really looking forward to some fab viewing coming up, Glee, Being Human, Supernatural, Survivors, Dancing on Ice, Both dancing shows and Next Top Model in whatever country!!! Hurrah!

Happy Days.

New year and new plans.........

The downside is that I ate like a pig over Xmas and New Year but the upside is that I enjoyed it and whatever my weight is on Tuesday I will accept that and have that as my fresh new starting weight.

I am also doing a walking half marathon through the night in April for Cancer Research UK so if you would like to donate any money please just click on the link above for my fundraising page.

I will also get back on track with my blog and getting back into doing my Wii fit......

Positive, positive, positive.......
