Sunday night...........

and it has been a good weekend, managed a 12 mile bike ride and even had time to go and watch Sheffield United play!

I have had extra points as my WW leader advised so I have no idea what the scales will say on Tuesday night, I am a bit nervous to be honest because I am trying something different......I hope it works.

This is a picture of me and my son Matt at the football ground.

Good weekend.

Last night..........

we took the kids to see a preview of Alice in Wonderland.

It was absolutely amazing!! The 3D effects were the best I have seen. It was a really good evening, we got in at 6.30pm and then watched the live feed from the London premiere which showed interviews and stuff which was a nice start before the film. The kids loved it and even though it was a late night and we are tired this morning it as well worth it especially as we got in for free!

I would recommend going to see this film.......

and yet another before pic......



A new day...................

and it is grey and slushy! lol

The weather aside, I am still as determined to have another good week.

I have planned my meals for today and on advice from my WW leader I will be having one extra point a day to counteract all the exercise I am doing. It is a bit of a gamble which can go either way at weigh in next week but if I can find a nice balance and it loses me the weight then I will be happy.

I am feeling a bit down with regards to money at the moment as I suppose most of us are. I don't want an extravagant excessive lifestyle, all I want is to be able to afford some treats without having to struggle for months after because of it.

Harumph!!! lol

half a pound off.

I am always happy with a loss but it seems so little after the 2 weeks I have just had.......

I have exercised my butt off and not slipped once on this diet, I deserve more than half.....

I think I am angry because I read on the WW forum of people who have gone way over their points and don't exercise and lose a good number......I know we are all different but I then get angry with those people because they could lose soooo much more!!! lol

I am one angry mutha!!! lol

I know I will keep going but the frustration levels are high tonight......


and 2 more before pics......

I don't even feel like this person anymore...

Bonus points.........

I have really upped my exercise these last 2 weeks.

Last week I earned 35 points but didnt eat any and sts so this week I have earned 34.5 and I have used 13.........

I asked on the WW forum about using some bonus points and was told that you should use some if you earn over 30, if that is the case then I have done the right thing by eating some this week....

I am really hoping for a good result because I have definately earned one!

My fitness level is coming along nicely and I am confident that I will be more than up for the walking half marathon in April......I am actually looking forward to it now.

in control and motivated now I have watched the finale of the Biggest Loser! They all looked amazing.

I want to look like those women in those gorgeous dresses!!!!

I am sticking to my exercise and me and sis have got another long bike ride planned tomorrow which includes some really tough hills...eek!

Let's hope I get the loss I deserve this week.....


Tuesday, 16 February 2010

Well I..................

stayed the same this week............:0(

I am a bit disappointed because I have earned 35 bonus points through exercise and stuck to the plan like glue, I can't help thinking that this is down to my negative thoughts this week?

I am going to keep on going and I have even walked 4 miles this evening so I will carry on and see what next week brings.......

I am not going to let it affect me and my outlook for the week is positive, positive, positive.................

Spread it around ladies and gents! lol


Monday, 15 February 2010

Why do I.......................

feel so negative about this weeks weigh in?

I have earned 35 bonus points through exercise (so far) and stuck to my points all week. I am really pleased with myself but today I woke up feeling very down and convinced that tomorrow night will show a gain....

Why is this? I know WW works and that I have done everything I can to have a loss......

I wish I could understand how our minds and our bodies worked!!

I feel big and bloated and part of me feels that I am thinking that because of how negative I woke up, like I have put it in my head that I am going to gain so I feel bigger!! I don't eve know if that makes sense......

Aaaarrrrggghhh, I am going to drink loads of water and finish off my week strong and try to wake up more positive tomorrow....

Fitness bore continued.........


So with the biking to and from work under my belt I then went on a long bike ride today with my sister and son.

We managed about 12 miles!

I am so pleased but I am now extremely saddle sore so after doing some sort of exercise since last Tuesday I am taking tomorrow as a rest day......if only to let my bum cheeks get back to normal!lol

I have stuck to my points so hopefully will all add up to a good weight loss on Tuesday.

Of to the pictures tomorrow with my family to see Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief, I am looking forward to it.

Another lovely weekend. :0)

I think I am ..........

becoming a bit of a bike and fitness bore! lol

All I seem to talk about just lately is going out on my bike or my next Wii fit session! I must be boring people stupid! I will do the same on here. lol

Upping the fitness this week, I have done exercise every day so far but my biggest achievement is getting sorted and biking into work today. It was so easy and so much fun! I have even got my own little room at work to store my bike which is great. I am hoping to bike it to and from work 3 days a week which should really boost my weight loss but also will save me £40 in bus fares a month. (That can go to buying me the new clothes I am going to need! lol)

I seemed to have stepped up a level in the WW zone and I am really chuffed with myself.

Have a great and healthy weekend people!

I am so pleased, I got rid of that unexplainable gain from last week and another half a pound! I am very happy and now totally in the zone and focused!!

My aim for this week is to lose 2.5lbs.

I would love to get below 14stone by the end of February.

I am going to start cycling to and from work as of next week and I am quite nervous about it but I am not sure why! lol Anyway, Hopefully this will help in my training for my walking half marathon.

Roll on next weigh in!

Suprise visit.......

from my period!?!?!

I woke up this morning feeling very sickly and had trouble keeping down my breakfast. Apart from that though felt relatively healthy then went to the loo and my period had started!!! WTF?!

I am not due for another 2 weeks and I have had none of the other crappy things I normally get as a warning like no sense of humour, sore boobs, stomach cramps, migraines and general grumpiness. Now don't get me wrong I am glad I haven't had those but I was not prepared and I have had to nip out for some Tampax! I just hope I don't get another period in two weeks as well!!!!

Bloody bodies are a liablility! lol

Sunday night...........

and all is well.

Done loads of exercise this week and had a good diet week, the week itself has been really emotional ranging from no Tesco delivery on Wednesday night to getting the good news about Matthew's neww school.........

I feel like hopefully I have lost the 3.5lbs last week (possibly due to the antibiotics) and I have drunk loads of water to try and shift the possible water retention.

I weigh in on Tuesday so another good couple of days and some Wii fit tomorrow night should give me that last push.

Overall, another week gone and I am not disappointed in myself .


Wednesday, 3 February 2010

Thank you........

for all your comments on my previous post. xx

They have made me get up and start today with a positive attitude.

I have got my fruit, a pint of water and my chicken pasta for today and when I have had my Tesco delivery I will be able to have a lovely, healthy and filling tea.

Things like this do knock us sideways but we all need to stay strong and just take each day as it comes.

The rest of this weight is coming off this year and I WILL be in WW magazine!!! lol

Have a great day everyone.

I am a little bit in shock.....................

and very sad.............

Went to my weigh in and I have put 3.5lbs on...................I have done loads of exercise, counted all my points even when I had chips and onion rings on Friday night and was really expecting a loss..........

The only other thing this week is that I was ill and I have been on antibiotics since Saturday but I don't think medicine affects your weight does it????

I am going to feel crap all tonight then I am going to keep on sticking to it and hope that my body will right itself.........

Had a lovely weekend.........

with my friend Sarah and my two newest friends Jan and Louisa.

We went round Doncaster which I used to 'haunt' when I was in my late teens/early 20's and to be honest it hasn't changed that much! lol We had a great laugh and I did go over my points because the onion rings were calling me!..........I have done plenty of walking so hopefully no damage done.

This is me with new hair colour and glasses (on the right) with my friend Sarah. We grew up together but lost touch after secondary school, thanks to facebook we are firmly back in each others lives and I have never been happier.

Not really sure where this post was going but that is it for

Thank you for my lovely blogger awards, I will do my list and nominate the blogs that inspire me later on tonight.
