6 Days to go!

Dear Journal,

Sorry I haven’t written in a long time (or what feels like a long time) i have been really busy and had a lot on my plate to contend with. So here is the update…..

Saturday 1st March:
Me & Lilith-Rose played with her Megablocks and yes, i probably had more fun than she did even though my mind isn’t that creatively inclined when it comes to building. She had loads of fun though and kept going “mummy do it, mummy do it”.

Sunday 2nd March:
Had such a lovely day today. I could not be more loved up with Steve than right now. He had his Sunday free so he popped over to see me and Lilith-Rose. We took the day out for just us 3 which was fantastic. Went to see Nanny Wright and she had a ball seeing us. It always brightens her day seeing us. Lilith-Rose chased Dora (her cat) about the house and kept talking to her which was adorable. We then ventured to Steve’s suprise for the both of us which was a trip to “Jolly Rogers” in Swindon. HAD A BLAST! Lilith had loads of fun and it was really nice to just get out the 3 of us and enjoy having time with Lilith and playing with her in the ball pits and on the slide. I may think I had more fun than Lilith-Rose did. However, EVIL CHILDREN, attacked me with balls throwing them at me and then Lilith joined in! haha cheeky girl.

Today has been awesome. Finally got my birth certificate through so I can start my new job soon which will be really beneficial. I am working with 2-3 year olds which is a bonus because then I will know what i’m doing with Lilith when she is that age. I am really excited about starting and getting on with it. Been to the gym today! awesome session and it actually felt really good and not like a chore, like it normally does. I have also started eating better too which is making me feel more positive and energised. I am also using “Maxitone Sculptress” protein shakes to have as a snack or after a workout to help my muscle re-growth.

EXTATIC with myself today. It has been such a good day. I am using an app called “Noom Coach”, if you are trying to lose weight then it is really helpful. Gives you little bits to read, records your eating and uses a colour coded system when your food intake is added. It is free to download so give it a go! I’m finding it really helpful…..6 days to go until weigh in. 10 pounds here I come!

16 Days to go….

Dear Journal, 

16 days to go until I weigh in and hopefully have lost 10 pounds. I’m currently not hopeful of it, mainly because today I have devoured a McDonalds. NOT GOOD. However I have been feeling a bit crappy and junk food was just what I needed…..no excuse though. haha. 

Went to the hospital this morning so that Lilith-Rose would get some antibiotics, so that she can get rid of this awful chest infection that she has. Then off to Tesco to grab it and whilst we went round the supermarket I managed to pick up some DIETING shakes and snacks. Something I NEVER normally would do, however I would like to give it a go and i don’t like slimfast, plus a few friends thought it was rubbish. So good old Tesco have got their own brand of slimming products. I brought 3 lots of shakes (10 sachets in each) and 3 lots of Crisp snacks which only cost me £11 (on offer). Like any other Dieting thing it is a meal replacement so I will be having two shakes a day, one from breakfast and another for tea. Snacks will be half the packet of Crisps so that it last me a little longer.

I haven’t bothered with slimming aids because they are all REALLY expensive, and me being a mum, doesn’t have that much money to spend on myself. For instants there is a teatox that I want to try, however to get it all over here for a months supply it costs me something like £60, no thanks. I cannot justify that just to make me slim. Plus I have a gym membership so as I have a weeks holiday I will be making the most of it and maybe even take up an evening class one day to keep me on track if I don’t go to the gym in the daytime. 

 

SO when my weigh in comes along if the slimming aids work I will be letting you know 🙂 Lets strive for that 10 pound loss. Oh and i’m also cooking tea tonight for myself, boyfriend and sister, Fajitas, yes its easy but I burn toast. Fingers crossed I don’t poison them! Have a lovely day, you are beautiful.Image
