Thank you for reading over the last year – I hope you stay and continue this journey with me!

Letting The Side Down…..


I have been letting myself down a bit! I only managed 45mins at the gym on Monday but managed an hr on Sunday! I haven’t been since, but will be bk tomorrow and Friday and I WILL do 1hr! I felt so good afterwards on Sunday…..

Also the whole no technology after 9 kinda got forgotten about but I am going to make a conscious effort to start it as of tonight!

Things have just been a bit manic so far this month, so I am looking forward to settling down and into a routine for the rest of the month!

Let get this month kick started and kicked into shape!!!

Motivation March

Hello Everyone!

I hope you all are doing ok and keeping well. I have been thinking about March and how it is going to be a positive month for me, so I have set some things to achieve for march and encourage you to do the same!

Work out for 1 hour at the gym I will quite often stay between 30-45minutes at the gym, but I think if I spent 1 hour of pure hard work and dedication at the gym for the 3-4 days that I go then I will really start to see the benefit when I measure myself and also hopefully on the scales! Hopefully this will form a habit and after a couple of weeks it will be easy for me to stay for 1 hour!

Get my boobs measured! Ok! this is a random one – but it makes sense, there is sooo many women out there wearing the wrong size bra & I cannot remember the last time I got myself measured. Its so beneficial to be wearing the right size bra not only for your comfort but to help with posture & allowing your clothes to fit appropriately. So I’m getting measured!

Get your 1.5 stone award at slimming world! This has been on my to-do list for the longest time! I am 5lb away from getting this award. THis would be easy to achieve if I was on plan 100% all the time & I will admit I’m not. However now I will be I am going to get to this goal and I am going to sort this out for once and for all! I have decided I am going to get a food diary written down and be honest with what I am putting in my body!

No technology after 9pm! This is a bit of an odd one, but I honestly think it will help me to relax and go to bed a lot easier and get some proper rest and really switch off.

I am hoping that this will really help me to get me motivated and get some habits formed so that everything will start to flow more naturally and I will get to where I want to be!

What are your goals for march? what would you like to achieve?


No Technology?!

29th December: A couple of days ago Matt just casually said “You Will Never Do Number 14” He is adamant that I will never be able to last a week without my Phone, iPad, Laptop or Kindle. I said to him of course I will because its on my list and I will do it! So he has made a bet with me – on 2nd January, I was to hand all of my 21st technology over to him for a week and he has promised to call me every night! The rules are that I can of course use the computer at work (otherwise I will never do anything!) but I cannot use my mum’s pc or iPad.

TODAY So this post goes live on 5th January, its a Sunday and I will have probably gone to the gym in the morning and be really lost this afternoon. I will probably read one of my new books or watch a few movies and paint my nails! I think I will probably be really over the initial struggle and actually getting used to not being in touch with the world!

So this is something else off my list – I am really making headway this year with my list! This will be the first thing that I can cross off and I have another 2 to do pretty soon as well! I am really pleased that I have put my list together as I am doing things that I probably wouldn’t be doing otherwise and I have this blog to look back on as well!

I will be back and blogging like normal soon!
