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!

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.

13 weeks and -25.5lbs and I've reached my 10% goal!!! YEY. My god does it feel amazing! Even after a week of not being totally on track I still managed to loose 3.5lbs which is cementing into my head that the exercise DOES MATTER A LOT!!!

I've started looking at before photos and can actually see the difference now. I would upload some before and now photos, but me and technology don't go and I cant work out how to do it!! I will soon though!

I had a bit of an emotional night last night, but I didn't comfort eat, I am therefore very proud of myself for this!

I'm only cheating myself

I' m such an emotional eater, I need to learn that no matter how sad, homesick, or lonely I am, I don't need to turn to food.
After a 2 days off the plan I am back on it 100000%! Planned meals for a week, Food bought for them. Exercise plan done. I WILL DO THIS.

I love my pedometer!!

Had a great WI last night and lost 3lbs which takes my total up to 21.5, and as I got my next silver 7, I treated myself to a pedometer.

Today I've been shopping with my gran which was lovely and ive walked 6 miles!!! How amazing is that!? I hadn't ever thought shopping you could clock up that many steps! It's great!! Had lunch out and had a ceasar salad which was yummyy!

Bought a lovely dress to wear on Sunday - It's my grandparents golden wedding anniversary and a buffet! eeek, so going to try and save some points through the week for that:)

Off to see Calender Girls later with my mum so looking forward to that a lot :)
