False start!

So that was the week that was!

It was my 44th birthday on Saturday, so I didn't track as much as I should have, and I ate some stuff I shouldn't have! I also drank my body weight in vodka and lemonade (diet, nach!!).
I also found out at work that I'm being had over which has not pleased me at all! I've been mega stressed out about it all (work, house move, job etc) and done my usual 'F**K everything' instead of dealing with it in a problem solving manner.

Once more I looked through a heap of blogs (whilst writing a grumpy letter to my boss), but I was eating home made coffee and walnut cake at the time. I made this beautiful cake found at


Walnuts are good, right?

I can't begin to tell you how good it was!

I got out with Doug and Polly for a little walk, but with tbh, I've got less enthusiasm than a hoody in a job centre!

So Monday is here again, and short of an exchange of contracts on the house......I can't see the week getting better.

However................ I am not going to let this phase me! If I can track for 5 days and get off my arse for 3 night this week....I'll be happy!

One of the biggest inspirations to me is a lady called Sheryl. You'll probably know her....she has a style of her own, never sits still, and rides the coolest bike!

She is the author of
where you can read all about her latest conquests.

I've decided to pich one of her ideads, which is a 'What I'm Working On and Goals for Next Week', and here's what I'm going to try to do:

  • Track my points for 5 days
  • Go to the Gym with Lal 3 days
  • Make good food choices for 6 out of 7 days

I have been super lazy since we found out we were moving, and my elliptical trainer is buried under a mound of boxes! I hope that when we do eventually move, it's going to be a fresh start for both DH and me.

Taking the first step is always the hard part...........

Meh! (again!)

With regret, I had to stop the Janathon because life became a bit too hectic!

We have (hopefully) sold our house, and we're sitting amidst boxes containing all our worldly goods! There are only a few more bits and bobs to pack in the lounge, and the whole of the kitchen, but the use of an eight yard skip came in rather handy!!

My good friend Julie came to see me yesterday, and I cried when I saw her. She's lost 98lbs in the past year, and looks fantastic. She has strengthened my resolve to get strong and healthy again. It's been difficult for the past 2 weeks, with packing and assignment writing (I start my new module on 18th February), and healthy anything went out the window. I'm back to work after my annual leave tomorrow, so routine will be back into my day. I get thrown a little without routine, I guess I've picked up some Aspie habits from Doug!!

I'll be in bed again at 9pm at night, getting up and walking Noodles before work. I'm very lucky to have a job I love so much, I'm looking forward to getting back to it, but it can be mentally quite exhausting.

So.....normal serviceshall be resumed tomorrow!!
