Another two-week update; again I haven’t been too amazing with my weight watching progress over the last couple of weeks. That being said, I have cut out some of the things that I think were causing some problems, namely no more pop tarts! My other half was somewhat of a bad influence weekend before last, we had chicken and chips take away and over all in the last two weeks I’ve had that take-away three times. I can hardly expect miraculous results when I’ve done that! I didn’t go on a bender or anything, but I definitely could have made … Continue reading WW; Weeks 24 and 25
I’ll start by apologising for my lack of WW blog last week, there’s a pretty shameful reasoning behind it too I’m reluctant to say… I didn’t blog last week because I gained 2 lbs and to be perfectly honest I was so tired of having to report bad food weeks to you guys that I just couldn’t bring myself to blog about it. So, week 22 was bad because I ate a lot of crap, I had a hefty Chinese, pizza, lots of picnic-type foods and absolutely nothing nutritious or good for me at all, basically. I’ve also developed quite … Continue reading WW; Week 22 and 23
Every single day, every single person on this planet has their own battles, often kept secret. Depression, anxiety, grief, pain, self confidence, weight struggles ~ the list is endless. The thing is, and I think sometimes you need to be told this ~ and you need to believe it, it will get better! It might not happen today, in fact it’s more than likely that it won’t happen today, but it will get better in time. There may be a war raging within you, only a select few may be aware ~ maybe no one in the world knows ~ … Continue reading Secret Battles…
So there’s good and bad news this week: Straight off the bat I’ll start with the bad by letting you know that I went over my points. I haven’t eaten particularly well this week; I’ve skipped some meals and I’ve eaten irregularly but I did stick to my points all week, that was until Saturday when I surprised my other half with a romantic meal at home, three courses ~ the full works ~ that’s what pushed the points over. And I still haven’t exercised, as if you expected anything different on that front! Nonetheless, the good news is that … Continue reading WW; Week 21
Well, the idea was generally that I’d be better this week. That was the plan. suffice to say it didn’t quite work out that way… I mean, it wasn’t an awful week but it definitely was not a good week either, not even close. I was doing OK (ish) but then Friday night I splashed out with a big Chinese takeaway and drinks with my boyfriend at home to cheer me up and that well and truly threw things out of whack ~ seriously went well over my points, like WELL over. I did weigh myself mid-week and I’d lost … Continue reading WW; Week 20
I’ve been a bad blogger again, I missed a week and this week is late. I’m sorry, forgive me? Better late than never though, right? Anywho… my progress…. Right, i’ll keep it as short and sweet as possible. So, i went a couple over my points in the last couple of weeks; full disclosure. However, I have been point counting and getting myself back on track so that’s a positive! I’ve still been a bit all over the place in myself so it is quite hard at the moment,nonetheless i’m trying not to comfort eat and i’m sticking to my … Continue reading WW; weeks 18 & 19
So I had a pretty deep conversation with my other half recently, I found myself in a bit of a slump and we were talking about where we are in life, where we should be and where we want to be (all content for another blog) but somehow we ended up getting on a different topic altogether. I’m not sure why I asked, or what prompted me but I asked him a question that I was actually pretty scared to find out the answer to…. “Why me?” He look at me very confused, his initial answer was “Why not?” Now, … Continue reading Am I Lovable?
Well, if you thought last week was bad, this is worse. What’s the point in blogging my progress if I’m not honest with you? Answer – there wouldn’t be any point in that. So I’m going to be open and honest, no matter how hard it may be, because I think it will help in the long run; this week hasn’t been good either. I’m starting to realise that when you’re not in a good place in yourself, when you’re not positive, it’s hard to be positive with your weight loss journey and to stick to the plan. I’m going … Continue reading WW; Week 17
I promised this haul a while back and now that Christmas has come and gone and all the presents have been distributed, it’s time! I’m not going to put the prices, but if you have any questions about any particular … Continue reading Disneyland Paris Haul!
OK so here’s the thing, it’s been bad. I’m not going to follow my usual format for my WW blog because to be quite blunt I haven’t followed my usual WW anything. I’m not going to lie and I won’t sugar coat it (because that seems to be the core of the problem… get it… sugar coating? Bad diet? Meh…) basically, it’s been really really bad. Over Christmas I wasn’t actually that bad, I did pretty much eat what I wanted and went a bit wild on Christmas day but in between I wasn’t too bad all things considered; I … Continue reading WW; weeks 14, 15 and 16.
Dear December, What a month you were! You brought with you such promise of hope and joy and you certainly did not disappoint! I really am so glad that you came, as I am every year, but this time you … Continue reading A letter to December…
As much as I appreciate the origins of Christmas, I’m not a particularly religious person so for me Christmas is really about family, friends and festivities. … Continue reading There’s just something about Christmas!
