Not much going on...


Thought I would blog to say Hi and keep you updated although nothing much has happened to me that has been remotely interesting! lol

I am still fighting to get rid of my cough and onto my second bottle of cough medicine now - not amused!
I wanted to try Pilate's, people have been telling me how good it was - phoned up the gym to book a place and was told by the lady at reception that it was fully booked! My gym is never fully booked, its on an industrial estate and it pretty much empty at a weekend! Damn New Years Resolutions!!

I'm going to book in for next week instead.... how advanced am I??

This week I am going to Scotland to run a course, its in Rosyth near Edinburgh. Have never been before so I think I will be in for a treat - loads to see and do while I am there!

Issues with the computer!

Hi again!

Apologies for this blog being a bit on the late side - our computer at home has decided to not let us load Internet explorer... every time we click on the icon on our desktop it tries to load and then closes!! Odd (If anyone has any suggestions about what we could do let me know please!)

Weigh in on Monday.... was nervous as I assumed the worst and got to there really early so that on one else could see me if it was as I suspected.
However I was pleasantly surprised as it wasn't as bad a gain as I had expected - 3lbs!
This is a lot better than what I thought and means that I did reasonably well over the course of December! yay!

I hope everyone else has had the same luck or even better, my dad managed to loose 2lb over the Xmas week, that man is determined!

This week has flown by I don't know if anyone else feels the same? I haven't felt great this week either - I have yet another cold with a cough that just wont shift, this has annoyed me as i was planning on getting my exercise back on track but I'm sure I'll feel better and be able to breath properly again soon!

Take Care....

You can't stop the beat!


Hope you are all well and feeling refreshed in the new year!
The most energetic thing I have done today is watch Hairspray on DVD!

It is now one of my favourites - its not only all singing and dancing, but for everyone who is carrying a few extra pounds it reminds us that if we put our minds to something we can achieve it!

Plus its a great mood lifter!

I did have a really nice meal today... I am new to the likes of butternut squash. I would look at it with disgust while walking through tesco's! :)
I took the plunge and decided to give one a go as people were always telling me how nice it is!
Well... I had to peel it which was hard enough, then i discovered that there were seeds i had to remove! It was turning out to be more than I bargained for!

However after chopping it into chunks, using the one calorie spray, some salt, pepper and mixed herbs - I roasted them for an hour and it tasted delicious! I will defiantly be buying it again!

Till the next time!

Could be a while! lol :)


This is me and my mum!

This is me and my dad!

And finally me, possibly after a few wines! lol

Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy New Year 2009!
I hope that everyone had a fantastic evening and saw in the new year in style!
Me... well I was at home and watched telly while drinking WKD - Watched the new year celebrations in bed and promptly fell asleep! Style?? I think not! lol
I was planning on having a friend over and we were going to have a few bevvies with my flatmate but she cancelled last minute as her son's unwell and I told my flatmate to go see her fiance - Sad i know but its not the end of the world! :)
Weighed myself this morning and according to my scales I have put on 4lbs over the xmas period! I am weighing in on Monday so I will soon see of this is the absolute truth or not!
(I am slightly scared)
New Years Resolutions....
1. To loose weight and stick to the plan
2. To blog more, I keep forgetting and that is not a good enough excuse!
3. To make more time for myself
4. To set realistic goals
5. To not take things to personally (that may take some doing!)

2009 Goals!
1. By Spring (My Birthday April 8th) to Loose 1 stone!
2. By the Summer (The 1st July) to Loose another 1 stone!
3. By Autumn (The 1st October) another 1 stone!
4. By Winter (The 1st Jan 2010) 1 stone!

That's a total of 4 stone for 2009! And I am going to work real hard to make this happen!
I am going to fashion some sort of monitor on this blog!

Good luck everyone this year on your weight loss and goals! Its a brand new year and the slates are wiped clean!
