Snow, It's Time To Go...

Ok, so snow is pretty and it's OK for a little while and when we have it once in a blue moon, but when the UK comes to a standstill because of 6 inches of snow it's getting a little ridiculous. And more to the point being house bound is NOT good for WW, it is not helped by the fact that I have a little bit of a hangover and have just eaten all day, for lunch I'm now having pasta with a chicken tonight sauce, seriously that's a weird combination...tastes pretty good though! I NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!

I could be doing some of the mountain of coursework I have to do over Christmas, but I'm in too much of a bad mood to so instead I have spent the day watching TV. Not very productive. Whoopsies!

Another massive rant I'm going to have is about WW, and whether it is a diet or not, I personally don't think it is, it's changing your eating habits and the way you think about food, it educates you abut filling foods and how to make the most of what you eat. So when people say to me " how are you coping with you're diet over Christmas" and "what will you be eating over Christmas" it frustrates me, A LOT! I mean I eat and drink what I want on a daily basis, if I want chocolate I'll have it, but since following WW I have learnt about food, I mean I sometimes crave fruit, and I miss having fruit and veg in my diet. I can now see the difference between filling foods and foods that just satisfy you for a few hours. I will still be following WW even once I get to goal, that is not a diet and as my blog title says "it's a lifestyle change". So this Christmas I will be eating and drinking what I want and if I put on weight it's not the end of the world, I know exactly how to get it off again.  Rant over.

On a positive note, I went out last night at home, which is the first time since the summer as everyone is now home from uni, not sure why we went out in the snow, freezing was an understatement! But it was lovely to see everyone, and people commented on my weight loss which was great. And the funniest moment of the night was my friend face planting the floor after falling in the snow. I'm actually in stitches just thinking about it now! hahaha

I should really be writing an essay!

So I have a 2000 word essay to write, by Friday and yet I'm sat here watching Crimewatch and blogging!

First of all, apologise for my absence in blogging lately, I've been so busy with uni work and working it's all been a bit hectic.

So.. WW, I lost 2.5lbs this week, taking me to a total of 38.5lbs! which is 2stone 10lbs.. sounds so much doesn't it?! Crazy times. The big loss this week may have had something to do with the fact I spent all day yesterday throwing my guts up( sorry for the detail!) It was slightly self inflicted but still.. Hoping to have another loss this week and then fingers crossed STS over xmas. We shall see!! But it's great people are starting to notice now, and I had my works party on sunday and one of the guys said to me I looked like I'd lost a lot of weight. YEY:)

Talking about the male species... seriously, are they from another planet?!
The one guy I'm blatnetly infactuated with is just so flirty but there's obviously nothing going to happen, I should really get over him but I can't...then the one guy who actually likes me, I blew off because I'm so obsessed with the guy mentioned first. And then there's this guy friend who I've been really good friends with for years, and we always have a bit of a cheeky flirt, and then there's the odd (ok a lot) of drunken texts that go on.. and I sometimes think does he actually want something to happen, because sometimes I think I would like it to happen... but then other times I just think he just wants the flirty side. I give up with males. I really do.

 On a more positive note... here's a photo of my in my dress from Sunday, It's 2 sizes smaller than the one I wore at Christmas last year, and to be honest that was probably a size too small for me but I was in denial.

15% !!

After the week I had, I was not looking forward to WW and told me leader I did not want to know the damage I'd done. Before class I had already planned my meals and everything for the week, and then I lost 2lbs!!!! How I managed it I am not to sure, as I didn't track all week, I went out on Saturday night and I had a chinese on Sunday night!!... This was after a McDonald's last Monday, lunch out on Tuesday and Wednesday last week. I could not love WW any more right now!

This week I'm also making a decision to track in my little book, as normally I track on-line but I think it will help if I actually write it down. Which is good because for some silly reason E-source won't let me log in:(

I have so much course work to do for uni this week, and should probably be doing it now instead of sat on the sofa watching Saturday night's x factor! But I'm feeling ill, so I'm allowed?! Well that's my excuse any way!

I should be blonde!

So today has been a hilarious/stressful day! My petrol light had been on for a couple of days and I always push it to the last drop, today I pushed it too much and RAN OUT OF PETROL. At a set of traffic lights about 100 yards from the petrol station, in torrential rain! Embarrassing! A phone call to daddy later and after a lot of beeped horns at me, because people are too dull to realise my hazards are on, I got pushed to the petrol station! Never ever again will I go leave my petrol light on! 

I then drove back to Bristol ready for work tomorrow, and came home to a letter from Uni saying I haven't handed in a piece of coursework that I actually have handed in!! ARGH! So I will be paying them a trip tomorrow and be giving them a piece of my mind! 

WW has not been that great this week..... actually it's been pretty much non existent. But I shall be on track for the next 3 days before WI and will go to the gym, and hopefully a miracle will happen!!

So I was a little bit scared about all this new stuff, I don't deal with change well. But I decided to embrace it as it's all based on new science and they wouldn't bring it out if it didn't work with real results. So I stuck to it religiously, my Chinese last night came in under my 49 weekly points and WI revealed a 1lb GAIN! Disappointed would be an understatement! OK so my leader said that it was probably be because I had the Chinese last night and it would take a few days to "go away" kind of thing. SO I'm going to track this week religiously, will move my ass and get to the gym more, and despite writing this whilst eating oreo's, tomorrow morning brings a new start. 

Staying on track this week will be a challenge as I'm at home for a couple of days and being at home is my weakness, but I will do it, I mean I'm going to be at home a lot over Christmas, I need some practise!

I've been a lot happier recently, I don't know why something seems to have changed, I've realised you have one life so may as well live it and don't dwell in all the sh** that happens. I mean I got a parking ticket the other day and was so happy I didn't care I had to fork out £35 for the bugger! but hey ho! 

Also in one of my earlier posts I mentioned someone I really liked but I thought he didn't like me, well I've come to the conclusion I think I like the idea of him... rather than him. If this actually makes sense, it does in my head. Any way I'm moving on to better things... :) 

Tonight after WI, I kind of went to Maccy D's .. whoops it's OK, I have a week to gain it back, I then drove home yey and have been to the cinema with one of my best friends. It was great, we haven't seen each other for like 3 months? and it was great, we saw Paranormal Activity 2... so I won't be sleeping for a few nights, it was a good film even if I did watch most of it through the holes in my scarf!

I love being at home:)

Such a bad WW-er!

I have literally had such a bad week WW wise, but so much fun! I've eaten out 4 times this week, totally didn't choose the good options, but it's been a blast. Tomorrow will have a line drawn and back on track for 3days before WI, in the hope for a STS!

Everything's going quite well atm, apart from the ridiculous amount of Uni work I have to do, with no motivation to do it! I've got a promotion at work, my friends are amazing, I've seen one of my best friends this week who I haven't seen for 2 months, so that was amazing. I've been feeling home sick quite a lot recently, not sure why. But I'm going home in 2 weeks for a couple of nights, so that will be nice! 

Something's though I wish were just simpler. One main thing really, GUYS. Mixed messages, really is there any need for them?! OK so girls give them, but that's fine, were allowed to! I just wish I knew where I stood with a certain someone! Not to much to ask is it?! 

I'm home alone this weekend, which I'm not looking forward too, working quite a bit and will hopefully get quite a lot of Uni work done as well. Fingers crossed!

:) Happy Days xx

I haven't felt like myself lately, I don't know why, so OK it's chocolate week but that doesn't normally make me feel like this, I just "can't be bothered" with anything. It sounds like I'm just being lazy but I can't be bothered with uni, with my friends or with WW, and the frustrating thing is I want to. Life is pretty good for me right now, and yet I'm not grateful for what I have. I don't even know where I'm going with this. I just needed to put it into words rather than going over it in my head.

On the plus side. I lost 1.5lbs this week in WW, and considering I didn't stop eating rubbish for the whole week that's pretty impressive! But the thing is, I've lost 2 stone, and I'm 2 dress sizes smaller yet I don't feel any different. Don't get me wrong I feel happier and I obviously must look different because clothes that used to never fit me now do, but I still think I look like that person who was 2 stone heavier... I think I'm just having a down week, and hoping I'll be back to normal next week and loving life again.


A Cwtch would be lush right now

Home Time

Why is it impossible to stay on track at home? Home cooked food... nice things in the cupboard...and absolutely no will power. With a gain last week I really didn't need the temptations of home to take me in, and they did, I had the full intentions of being really good whilst at home, but I crumbled, and so did the cookies into my mouth! I know how easy it is to slip into bad habits, yet I can't say no. It actually scares me that I'll be at home for over 2 weeks at Christmas, which will be hard enough in it's self as it's Christmas, let alone with all the temptations and my lack of will power.

It seems as the minute I'm having 2 weeks on track with good losses, then a week or 2 off track, I want to be on track 100% of the time. I mean if I want to be at goal, or near enough at goal by the time I go to America(hopefully!) in June, then I need to get my arse into gear! 

My exercise routine hasn't been great the last few weeks either, I really do enjoy walking to Uni but the last 2 weeks I haven't and make up stupid excuses, I mean it saves me money, and I need to save every penny at the moment, and it's a nice stroll with the girls. I also haven't been going to the gym as much as I should, and considering I forked out for gym membership I want to get my moneys worth!

I don't even know where I'm going with this post, today I've been "evaluating my life" part of procrastination to not do any work, but it involved a clear out of facebook friends & photos. In a bid to delete certain people and memories from my life. I think that is why I like being in Uni so much, there's not many people from home there and that means there's not all the shit there as well! 
So this is just a major ramble about how my life isn't really on track right now.... hopefully it will be soon!

I did it!!

Yup, my 10k Run I actually did it, and it didn't kill me. I finished with a pretty respectable time of 1 hour and 20 minutes which I am super happy with!
The photos: the one at the top was of me yesterday and the one at the bottom was me in London just over a year ago, and I am now 2st lighter, so I just thought I'd share with you all the change!

I'm a bit scared of WI tonight after the amount of rubbish I've eaten all week, but hopefully the run and walking around London will help me with a STS! I shall keep you all updated:)

For now, I am staying in bed, as I can't actually move I'm aching so much, but have just found out I have to go into uni later:( only for an hour so I suppose it's not that bad!

In Limbo

This week has been a funny week, I've wanted to stay on track but yet I haven't, I don't think there's been one day where I've tracked religiously and I know it'll come back to bite me on the ass in WI on Monday. It doesn't help that I'm doing my 10k run on Sunday, so I've done a bit of training this week, but have said to myself I'll "take it easy" maybe I've taken it a bit TOO easy:/....

I went out for dinner with my parents last night, chips or salad. I chose chips, why it would have been just as easy to choose salad, it's not as though I don't like it. I do. This morning, a cup of tea... with biscuits, I didn't need the biscuits...or the cookie in the car on the way home! And now I've just bought a bag of eclairs and wine gums for the bus down to London...admittedly to share but still. WHY IS IT SO EASY TO SLIP BACK INTO OLD HABITS? I wish there was a button you could press that would turn off the cravings for all the rubbish food... the food that is going to put the 2 stone back on....

I should be feeling amazing, I went shopping today, and everything I bought was 2 sizes smaller than I was when I started; yet why am I feeling like it would be easier if Weight Watchers wasn't in my life?

This blog is just a ramble, I feel like I needed to get these feelings out there. The weekend in London will be hard food wise, I'll TRY and make wise decisions and hopefully once I finish the run I'll be motivated to get back on track.... I hope so any way. I do love Weight Watchers... just sometimes I think it would be easier without it, although I know I wouldn't be as happy as I am now. Argh. I don't know

Why do I care so much...

How can you care so much about one person when they probably don't even realise how you feel and never will because you haven't got the balls to tell them? It sucks. Why do I care so much about you, you probably just see me as a friend, and nothing more, but yet here I am still thinking about you? If only I could have a couple of bottles of vodka to tell you....

Ok so you get the point, there's one person that I like, A LOT, and have done for a while, yet I don't have the confidence to tell them. Grr. I don't do guys, I honestly don't think I have the capability to hold down a relationship, not that I've had the chance in a while! But yet I'm so caught up on him and wish I wasn't. :( I'm so jealous of people in long term relationships, just knowing you've always got that person that is always there. Don't get me wrong I love my friends to bits and know they are always there, but it's different.

On another note, MY FEET HURT. Never walk 6 and a half miles in sandals. It is definately not a good idea, I know have a MASSIVE blister on my foot and I can't walk, so I'm just going to moan and get as much sympathy as I can ;)

WI tonight, I'm hoping for a good loss, as I've earned a lot of BP's this week and have stuck within my points. We'll just have to wait and see....

I'm off to carry on lying on my bed moaning about my feet!

I'm actually quite happy at the moment

Lately I've realised I have pretty amazing friends around me and amazing family who are always there, along with this I'm starting to feel happy in myself. I'm proud of what I've achieved so far, not just with WW but with general life, getting A Levels, and getting to University.

But along the WW route I'm starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin, the girl who's been hidden for years is finally starting to emerge, I know I have a long way to go, but I have no doubt I'll get there, and I cannot actually wait for the day I get to goal and see that number on the scales, I think this thought is what keeps me going sometimes. It's not all about the numbers though and that is what I've realised, I'm a more healthy person, I mean I'm doing a 10k run in 2 weeks, so I won't run all of it but I'm aiming to run a good chunk of it... 6 months I wouldn't have even considered doing that!

This week has been a pretty good week for WW, I've eaten well (apart from the 2 slices of dominoes after a night out last night) and stayed within my points every day. I've also earned a fair number of BP's I've walked to Uni twice which is 3.4 miles each, have been to the gym and tonight me and my friend went to "aqua fit" we felt a bit stupid because we were new but it was actually really fun! Planning to go again on Sunday!

Uni's started back and I probably sound like a right little geek but I'm actually really enjoying it, and looking forward to this year - some of my modules are topics that really interest me, and I'm looking forward to getting to know more. Scary thing is Lecturers are starting to talk about my dissertation! EEK!

BUT, there's always a but! Sometime I just feel a bit lonely by myself, I've had my fair share of shit with guys, and I always thought being in a relationship was the be all and end all. However, I've realised recently it's not, I should learn to be happy with myself and by myself first before any relationship will work... I just need to keep telling myself this sometimes!! Apart from these little blips of loneliness I am loving life at the moment!

It's been a while, but I am most definitely back

So everything was going so well, and then it all went wrong. How? I have no idea, I'd lost all motivation and ambition I had, was ready to throw in the towel, which we all know would have ended in me putting the 27lbs back on that I have lost so far. This last month has been a tough on in terms of WW, with a 2.5lbs gain, I couldn't seem to find my routine again to loose it or WANT to loose it. At one time I remember thinking I didn't want to be doing this any more, life would be so much easier if I went back to the way it was. But would it really? No it would, what is life without challenges?...We have to over come these hurdles to make us stronger. I'm glad to say I've got over this little BLIP and am very much back on form... for now!!

I am back at uni, and it has just been freshers week, I stocked up on WW Wine (which is quite disgusting - but not too bad with diet lemonade) I believe this was my saviour! I tried to point as much as I could, and I think the dancing had a benefit as well! I re-joined the gym, although hadn't managed to go until today, due to having to have an induction - and the fact I was pretty much hungover or drunk last week I wouldn't have been in a fit state!

And the result of WI tonight... THREE AND A HALF LBS OFF! How did I do that? I honestly have no freaking idea, but if I did, I think it could make me quite rich! It was definately what I needed, at the right time! I am now under the next stone bracket, so have lost a point of my daily allowance and I'm now in the 14's... still a long way to go... but my little goals are getting me there. I have the motivation I did back on the 17th May when I joined. I am currently 1lb off loosing my stone, and I'm hoping I will do that this week!

Uni is going great too, only my first day back so far, but I'm weirdly enjoying 2nd year... strange! I plan to actually do some work this year seen as it counts!

I'm hoping to be blogging a lot more now I'm 100% back, as it helps me an enormous amount... even if I am just rambling on to myself!


p.s I have currently lost the weight of a koala bear!

Day 19

Day 19 - Nicknames you have and why

Smellinor - I'm not quite sure where this came from but everyone at home & at uni seems to have picked up on it and it's just stuck!

That's probably about the only one!

Despite not wanting to know at WI tonight - I lost half a pound! Which is good, considering I have only been back on track 2 days!


Day 18

Day 18- plans/dreams/goals you have

To be able to say NO!

Be successful in my career - what ever that is I don't know. I change my mind to often!

To get to goal before I go to America.

Have children (in the very distant future!!)

Stay on track when I'm back in the uni routine.

Complete my 10k run.

Pass my degree!

I missed this yesterday so will blog properly later & today's challenge


Saturday, 11 September 2010

I'm back

Yes I am 100 % back on track! My mind set has changed, I have motivation again!
I am currently in the process of making meal and exercise plans for the week, and also little goals and little rewards for when I reach them! I have also decided at WI on Monday I will get weighed but I don't want to know the results, as I think it will be another gain.

I plan on walking to and from work tomorrow - which is about 40 minutes each way, I am then joining the gym again on Monday and will get back into my running as my 10k run is only 5 weeks away!! I am loving my motivation.

I have also realised I need routine and plans in my life, and this will be key to my weight loss!

Blog Challenge -
OK so I missed day 16(yesterday) which was " Another photo of yourself"
So it is at the top, as per usual, because I can't move it!

This photo is of me last month, and although I have about 3 chins, I love it as I just look so happy and I can see around my neck that I have lost weight here. :)

Day 17 -Someone you would want to switch lives with for a day and why.

This is quite a hard one, I don't really know... I thought about a fly.. just so I could see what people get up to behind closed doors, and then I thought about a "skinny person" just to see what it feels like.. but I don't need to as one day in the near future I will be a "skinny person"... So I have come to a conclusion I would want to swop places with The President.. I'm not really that interesting in politics.. mainly because I don't understand them, but I figured it would be quite cool!!!

Close to giving up

My mind set seems to have gone, I'm not motivated any more. I WANT to be , I NEED to be, I mean i love loosing weight, but this 2.5lb gain has really hit me hard...I need a loss to spur me on.. get me back into running.B
ut at the moment I'm slipping back into bad habits. I don't want to be back at that weight I was when I started. I don't want to put on those 26 lbs...I was a ridiculous 16st 12.5 lbs when I started, and that's the first time I've admitted that because I am so ashamed of it. I don't want to be back there, I can't my health is suffering and not just my appearance. I want to loose more than the 26lbs.. I have a hell of a long way to go. I need help to get back on track :( :( :(

It was only a couple of days ago I was writting that it is all psychological, staying on track, eating healthily... then why on earth can't I put this into practise:( The bad bit of my brain is winning right now....I need the healthy bit to... I mean I do actually enjoy healthy food, and cooking but why isn't it making me happy at the minute?

I NEED routine and plans back in my life. Hopefully when I move back to Uni on Saturday I'll be able to.. away from temptation of lush home cooked food.... biscuits in the cupboard(because I won't buy them...) I sure hope this is the case:(

I want a hug :(

Day 15 - Put your ipod on shuffle and the first 10 songs that play

I love Bristol & my family

I can't actually wait for everyone to move back in properly now, just the banter, uni life and the amazing friends I have! Although I do miss the home girlies a hell of a lot! EEEKK only a week to go till everyone is back:) Happy days!

100% back on track with WW... despite the 2 bottles of wine consumed tonight.... not totally by myself mind!!!

Day 14- A picture of you and your family.

This photo was taken last month, it was my grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary, and the whole family was there. It was lovely to see them all as we don't often get together much, and especially since I've moved to Uni I don't see them as much as I would like. This photo also cracks me up as me and my brother are mid laughing fit at each other!!!! Love you lots!

It's all Psychological...

Ok I'm not just saying this because I study psychology, but eating healthily and staying on track is all in your head. Today I have been so focused and it's because I told myself to stay on track, and also I actually ENJOY healthy food...rabbit food.. salad all that, it's actually quite nice!! Should be quite simple.... lets see how long this lasts then!!

Day 13 -A letter to someone who has hurt you recently.

I don't really know where to start this...

We both know how we feel about each other but yet we always end up back here both being hurt. I could call you every name under the sun because I " hate" you... I don't hate you.... the complete opposite of that I love you, and that's what hurts the most. You used to love me, and I don't know if you do any more... but we always seem to hurt each other, thinking the other one wants to purposely.
The amount of time I've spent crying for you is not worth thinking about, it's too long. I wish I knew why we never work and how I always end up getting this hurt, you don't know how much you've hurt me this time. Messing me around this much hurt a lot... I know I've messed you around in the passed and maybe it hurt a lot but I can't honestly think it could have hurt as much as this. If it did, I'm sorry.
Everyone tells me to move on, that I'm just going to get hurt, every time I want to prove them wrong, but you always go and prove them right.
No matter how lonely or drunk I get I can't go back there again. I've finally realised that I will always love you and have some sort of feelings for you, but we won't ever work together, whether you want to work at our friendship is completely in your hands now, I've given my all and tried my best, just to have it thrown back in my face most of the time.....


Wow, writting that was a bit emotional, but in a good way. It's time to move forward.

"Can't be bothered isn't going to get me anywhere!!!"

Ok so I've had a bad week and haven't tracked or done much exercise... but I put on 2.5lbs!!!!!! I was NOT expecting that when I got on the scales. I need a big kick up the behind, I literally had to drag myself to the gym after WW. Where has all my determination gone? Don't get me wrong... I still want to do this, but it seems like so much more of an effort now than to when I started back in May.... Maybe a week back on track will cure that!!

Day 12 - How you found out about blogger and why you have one.

So a fellow weightwatcher started a blog about her weight loss, I was reading and thought it would be a good way to follow me weight loss... so here we are.

Sunday, 5 September 2010


So having not run for a couple of day, I went today and did 3.5k seen as I realised my 10k run is in SIX, yes SIX weeks. That really isn't long at all. UH OH! I also realised a lot of running further is psychological. I had planned to do 5k, I told myself I couldn't but I would push myself and do 4k, I am then comfortable around the 3/3.5k mark and that is what I did. This is nor going to help my training at all!! So tomorrow I WILL PUSH MYSELF!!!

Day 11- Another photo of you and your friends.

Ok so the photo's are STILL at the top of the page because I need a technology geek to come and explain it to me how to move them!
This photo was taken on Wednesday, which was such a good night - a lot of alcohol was consumed and that was even before we got on the bus to go to Cardiff! My friend from Uni was down which was great for her to meet all the girls and Rach had her friend from Luff down so was a lovely night!!

Day 10

Day 10- songs you listen to when you are happy, sad, bored, hyped, mad

When I'm sad it has to be a bit of Westlife - What about now. Or Miley Cyrus - The Climb.
Bored - it's a bit of anything from Taylor Swift, to Eminem to Whitney Houston.
Happy - A bit of Glee gets me in an even better mood, or JLS, Jason Derulo.
Mad- I'm usually made at someone I love, so I put on the love songs, which just make the situation worse really!

I had my Camp America Interview today and it went really well:) soo supperrr excited about that! But I have to wait till like november/december to find out if I have a place. Really hoping I have as it will be amazing!

Attempted to get back on track today... was going really well until I came across the apple danish in my car from yesterday.... I'm still in points for the day, but not expecting a loss this week, hopefully a STS.. 1lb gain at most....

Day 9

Day 9 - Something your proud of in the last few days...

Reaching my 10% goal. OK it's not in the last few days, it was last week but I am still incredibly proud of myself for it.It took me 12 weeks and 25.5lbs later I reached it. I still have a long way to go, but these little goals are what keep me going! Next one is 15%! :)

I am ridiculously hungover!!!

After an incredibly drunken but amazing night I have spent this beautifully sunny day in bed recovering!! The hangover is definitely worth it, loosing my shoes and picking glass out of my feet this morning - well that's debatable! I also haven't given in to hangover munchies either which I am very proud of. We are all going for a harvester later, but oh well!
I should really learn that when I am drunk I should let my emotions get the better of me & should also not be allowed a phone, as it results in my telling the person I love, that I love them even though were over. Good One there!

Day 8 - Short term goals for this month & why.

I'd like to loose 2lbs, I know this is possible and I would then have reached the 2st mark. After that 2 lbs I'd like to loose another 7lbs to get my next silver 7. I am sure these are totally possible - as long as I don't over indulge in Freshers's Week!!I also want to increase my running, and stick to my plan as my 10k run is coming up very soon and I'll actually collapse on the way around if I don't get my act together. I also want to sort out my finances and stop going shopping when I have no money and start saving!

I am literally dancing around the house with excitement, my friend from uni is coming down to stay and a couple of my other friends have their friends down from uni and were all going for a night out in Cardiff and I cannot wait! EEEKK! Only 7 hours till I pick her up!!

I'm a bit late with my blog challenge as day 6 was my favourite super hero. I don't really have one, so I'm just going to leave that out!

Day 7 - a picture of someone/something that has had a big impact on you.

Again the picture is at the top of the page because I STILL cannot move it! It is a picture of me and my mum. Sounds totally cheesy but my mum is such an inspiration and has had a big impact on me, and made me who I am today and I thank her for it! She has had her fair share of upset in life and has come out stronger on the other side and used her experiences to help others. She always puts everyone before herself and never does anything for herself bless her. She works so hard for everything she has achieved and even having knock backs in life it doesn't seem to put her off. Mum I Love You :) xxx

Day 5

A picture of somewhere you've been.

I thought about this post quite a lot, originally I was going to post a photo of the South of France, where my Grandparents live and that I have had many a holiday down there and good times! But then I thought we have amazing places here in the UK and I would therefore post a photo of somewhere in this Country. The picture is of a reservoir in Plymouth, I've never been to Plymouth before and one of my friends from Uni lives down there and we went to stay in Easter. It was an amazing couple of days and such a lovely place! (again the photo is at the top of the page because I can't figure out how to move it!!)

I'm not really in the mood to blog other than this challenge.


Happy Bunny :)

I don't know why, but today I am in quite a happy mood:) Which is lovely! Worked all day then came home to a friends birthday bbq - which I didn't pig out too much at, although the chocolate fudge cake was yummay - only had a small piece though! Then just had a quiet night in and watched a totally weird film " My Super Ex-Girlfriend" was very weird!! I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks, got lots of "bits" happening. I need to get my arse into gear with my running though other wise this 10k is actually going to kill me.

Day 4 - A Habit that you wish you didn't have.

Now this is a hard one, I have SO MANY bad habits, or things that are bad but wouldn't really be classed as a habit.. this is actually taking me quite a while to think of one! The one thing I would want to change would be to not be so stubborn in a way. Once I get something in my head that has to happen. In some respect that is good because if I put my mind to it, then I'll achieve it but on the other hand it is not always good and has sometimes got me into some sticky situations!

Lovee xxx

Going Insane & Day 3.

Blog Challenge Day 3.

I have uploaded 2 photos just because I couldn't choose! The top photo is of me and my friends from Uni, a hideous photo but I like it because most of the "uni lot" are in it and it was such a fab night!!
The bottom photo is of me and the girls on my 19th Birthday. I love this photo again just because we are all in it and it was such a good night!

I am going completely insane in that I keep loosing things, well they keep vanishing. I have now lost my camera.. I have turned my house upside down looking for it and my room at uni looking for it and it's vanished!! The annoying thing is, is that it has to be here somewhere because the last place I went and took photo's I've uploaded the photos and haven't had it since. ARGHH so annoying.

WW wise has been and OK week so far, haven't done much exercise in terms of running, but have done a lot more walking (and getting lost in the process!!)

Crap Mood & Day 2 of Blog Challenge

I'm am so not a morning person, let alone when I'm woken up, and was woken up stupidly early this morning and I'm therefore in a foul mood, particularly due to the lack of sleep as I didn't get to sleep till gone 2... Lovely! A nap will definitely be in order later!!

So Day 2 of the blog challenge - The reason behind your blog name

" The Journey of a Lifestyle Change"
Basically I am totally uncreative and couldn't really think of anything to name it, then I came up with this... Weight Watchers is NOT a diet, it's changing your eating habits, OK so many people may think that is a diet, but a diet is short term/temporary, Weight Watchers is for life. It changes the way you eat, your relationship with food, and how you think and see food. And I am on that journey of changing my lifestyle, my relationship with food. So there we go.. that's how "The journey of a lifestyle change" was developed.
