A Fresh Start!

Hey Guys,

I’m back and it ain’t good or pretty news that I have to report, but after a fellow blogger advised me to rip the plaster off and start again by putting the bad behind me, I decided he was right.

So I hit the scales on Saturday morning, horrendously hung over and faced the music, the damage you ask? Up 4lbs on the scales, now only 1.5lbs of that was fat, so we’re unsure if the booze was still in my system 12 hours later and put the reading off! I’m not looking for a cop out, I deserve to be up, but it is a possibility that the booze in my system fecked up the reading.
So the plaster has been ripped off!

Last week I was doing my exercise and eating the usually but I was also having lotsa ice cream and other lovely things with this fab weather, I was pretending I was on my holidays sitting out my back garden (we have to make the most of it while we can) I was out with work on Friday evening, dinner and a retirement part (free food & drinks meant I was there J)  So instead of having my usual pizza that I have when we go to this particular pub, I opted for parsnip chips and chicken gougons, and dya know, it was yummy and tasty and filling and I didn’t feel as guilty or as bloated as I would have had I eaten a full pizza to myself (which I would have done) Sharing food is something I’ll be working on forever I think, lol.. its just not in me!

So I ate out and choose wisely, I faced the scales and made a decision that I need to get back to giving myself the time and allowing myself to achieve my goal!
I’m 6 months in and I’m at 30% with regards my target, that’s not even at the half way mark yet for me!

So as I mentioned last week, I need a new challenge, a new exercise, a new routine to kickstart my bum back into gear and to get the scales moving in my favour once again.
I know I shouldn’t let the numbers affect me and upset me, but they do!! But that’s another story!!

So my local gym have advertised for a 6 week weight loss course and I’ve signed up. It will include 2 classes a week specifically for the people on the course, weekly food plans, weigh in’s and measurements will be taken on week 1, 3 & 6.
I don’t know anymore than that for the moment, I’ll know more after the meeting tonight, but I’m excited about this and 6 weeks will bring me right up to my week off work and Michael Buble Concert. So getting new clothes for my future husbands concert will be my new short term goal.

I’ll report back during the week when I have more details to share and I’ll also take photos tonight before week one commences.

I hope you’ve been enjoying the sunshine and making the most of it and getting outside.

Below are a few inspirational quotes that I like J all from Mr Google images and facebook


  1. Keep going, you can do it! Give yourself as much time as you need, don't try and squash yourself into limits because you'll panic - as I do say, the weight didn't all come on in a very short space of time, so it won't come off in a very short space of time. Take your time, listen to your body and keep doing what you're doing, which is being amazing x

  2. I'm delighted for you (not that you are up, but that you decided to rip that plaster off). Ignorance is bliss but thats what got us in trouble in the first place. Well done on weighing in this week and wish you the very best of luck on the 6 week gym program. Sounds like it'll be really good & focused. Looking forward to seeing your results xx

  3. Losing weight is never an easy task. There are many interesting piece of information when it comes to diet and health; provides relevant information to have a healthy body.
