D -day

Here we go again...

i have just weighed myself and I'm at my heaviest in a long time.. 10stone 9lbs... now that's not good..  i did have a pre-diet blow out at the weekend and ate and drank enough for a family of anyway.. today is DDay - the start of my diet - i am going to follow a calorie controlled diet and reduce my calories to about 1200 calories a day..   I did fthis before following a Tesco diet and lost a stone in weight so i am going to aim for a stone for starters and see how that goes.. the first week i'm expecting to lose at least 4-5lbs..  oh and Today alan and i are going for a run... we are not going to mess about we are starting with a 9 miler.. it may mean lots of walking but even that will be better than nothing.. so off in a bit and feeling positive..

Sun is shining, a bit chilly but we can handle that..

9 miles done.. not all running but took us 1hr 33mins,,  not quick but not bad for starters

2 slices of whole meal toast  

2 cups of tea with skimmed milk

1 egg scramble on two slices of wholemeal

Just wanted to add that I love Alan so much, he is the perfect husband.. he looks after us all very well...bless him

Friday, 1 March 2013


ok so it's Friday,  at the moment i do not work Fridays however, that may change, i've offered to work extra hours at the surgery and i'm waiting to see if they are going to take me up on the offer...

so today, so far i have been a right lazy bones, i got up at 09.15, had tea and toast, followed by a long soak in the bath (after lots of internet browsing) at 11.45..  it's now 13.04 i'm dressed and hair done.. but have not done a thing in the house oh other than put the washing on..  The kitchen is a mess, as is the rest of the house so i guess i will start in the kitchen.. 

This afternoon i have to go shopping, i don't mind it to much as Alan helps out.. At the moment Alan is at the Marina hotel photographing the opening of the Spa..I am desperate for him to come home soon as he has been offered an amazing opportunity by the hotels directors and i need to hear all about it.. i'm feeling really quite excited.. I know it's photographing 11 of their old peoples homes for brochures but i need to hear more.. xx

Monday is going to be diet day again!!  I have planned my meals and need to concentrate on getting nice and slim..  I have a couple of weddings coming up in the summer and i want to be slim and fit.. Running has gone out of the window for the last 4 - 5  weeks so i need to start that on Monday too.  So Monday is the day (Alan will laugh because i always start diets and things on a Monday)  My goal is to loose 1.7 stone and start running as if i'm going to be running a marathon.. watch this space..!!!

Hannah is having a hard time trying to decide what to study at Uni.. she did decide on Nursing but now she is unsure what to do..    I never went to Uni,  I am not the brightest spark and i really don't know what to suggest to her other, i can only support her decisions...  For now though, she has decided not to go to Uni this year but to take take out and think about what she wants to do.. good move me thinks!!

Right all those jobs i've been putting off  i really need to start now..

here's to the weekend
