20 February 2013 – well and truly stuck

20121002-195746

This week have stayed the same again! I think my scales actually do hate me. Still I did have a Chinese on saturday when Bard came round although I didn’t eat it all. Still, I guess all the salt and MSG could have caused a bit of water logging. Anyway I’m not letting myself get down about it just keeping on keeping on. Continue reading

13 February 2012 – Feeling disheartened

20121214-071012

Over the last few weeks I’ve been working really hard to get rid of the weight I put on whiles I was immobilised after my car accident. After I was given the all clear to go back to the high impact exercise I slowly built up the kettle bells and step, the Pump it Up and religiously stuck to logging my food apart from a tiny chocolate slip up last week. Today I weighed in and I’ve put on two pounds! Continue reading

7 December 2011 – trying to get back on track

20120915-135203

An almost total lack of exercise unless you count stretching and yoga coupled with weeks at home unable to do anything much have resulted in a gain. It isn’t horrendous but it’s way more than I’d like and I have a wardrobe full of stuff that no longer fits. The problem is, I still can’t do much exercise, or not the stuff that burns calories and it’s tough to get back on track by eating well alone. Let’s face it, it’s hard to eat well all the time.

4 September 2011 – Almost back to normal

IMG_1585

Finally we seem to be getting Bard’s flat back to normal and with it our lives. I am very proud of him because he had always had a kind heart and is willing to lend a helping hand. Sadly, this time it caused him a bit of trouble but all is now more or less sorted out. Bard’s face is looking a lot better too. We had to buy a new toilet as his friend managed to smash the old one. Commando fitted it for him this weekend and things are finally looking more or less ok. Continue reading

1 July 2011 – A great honour

One of the reasons I finally managed to get my weight under control was the Weight Loss Resources website and the support of all the lovely people on there. Today I was given the great accolade of having my success story featured on the site. Of course I’ve known about it for a while because they asked me to write about myself and send them some pictures. I have to say I was really honored to be asked to tell my story, especially as I felt there were so many others on the site much more deserving. Continue reading

12 May 2011 – Moonwalk costume complete

3 moonwalk

As of 8pm tonight I am on holiday from work for two whole weeks. No more phone calls, no more swearing 98 year old women (who knew they knew that kind of language), no more targets, no more getting up early and fitting in my exercise. Missing my team already and getting nervous about the Moonwalk but first day of the holidays is a lovely feeling. I wonder if I will remember how to do anything by the time I get back? Continue reading

17 April 2011- holiday plans and bikini troubles

IMG_2720

We have just booked flights for a week away after the Moonwalk!!! YIKES. We will be going to Agadir in Morocco, somewhere I have never been but I’m hoping I will love it as much as I love Marrakech. I do know a fair bit about it and I have a good friend who lives out there who also happens to own a tour company. Hopefully she will be able to get me a good deal on a hotel. Continue reading

26 March 2011 – reunion

20120919-202442

Tonight there was a reunion for all the old staff from Dream Factory. At first I didn’t think I’d go, especially as I still wasn’t feeling 100%. Commando thought it would be good for me though so, in the end, I said I’d just pop my head in. Reunions are not really my thing and, as it was in a restaurant and I knew there would be lots of drinking, which I’m not fond of, I wasn’t exactly keen. Continue reading
