Tuesday Newsday

..aka how my week has gone!

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment

Brilliant news!! So so pleased with myself!!

Yes I do feel I have the right to be a little bit smug today. Especially as I think it now validates the £44 I spent in Asda on WW products yesterday :/

This week has been quite quiet. I enjoyed my night in Manchester with Patsy, highlights included awkward turtle, horse semen, lesbos, HELLO WE ARE SOBER and Patsy’s comedy fall. Good times 🙂

Pleased to say that although I was more careful with what I was drinking I didn’t limit myself. And at breakfast (during which there appeared to be a monsoon happening outside!) I managed to abstain from the butter and the hollandaise and stuck to eggs on toast with a very healthy smoothie 🙂

Cravings have been quite hard this week, but I know that my body is getting used to the new way of eating. I haven’t felt hungry and I haven’t missed chocolate (nothing for a week now, or crisps!) I just am learning to substitute.

Having breakfast has also helped a lot, cereal and eggs (although not together..!) can’t beat them.

So yeah, as you can tell from the upbeat tone of this post I am very happy.

Other reasons to be joyful this week:

  • 6.5 days left at work till I’m on “me ‘olidays”
  • Mrs T2B coming to visit on Thursday
  • The knowledge that I have the next 3 Sundays off work
  • New car searching is my new addiction – yesterday it was Beetles, today Minis…
  • Ted is coming out SOON – if you haven’t seen the trailer you need to watch THIS (NSFW!)
  • Magic Mike is out even sooner (Channing! Alex! Joe! Matthew! Matt! Gaa!)

This is just a quick post today as am at work and I need to go back to making shizzle happen, but I had to share me joyous news before the feeling disappears!! I will probably write some more tonight.

Love, Peace and Low Fat Cheese Spread,

How In 11 Months Time…

…I’ll be glad I started today.

Once more, dear friends, once more into the breach I go. Weight watchers this time, in order to feel fabulous for Little J (not so little anymore she growed up..and soon to be Mrs J. Or S. Weird!) and her Willie’s wedding. I was hit with the blinding realisation last night that this momentous occasion is 11 months to this very day and I’ll be damned if I’m going to be the token fat one yet again. I have put on all but 2.5lbs of the weight that I lost in the first few months of the year. Tut Tut ZD, Tut Tut.

2 weeks ago me, Mrs T2B and Long Distance Bridesmaid headed to the fair (not so fair on this particular day) city of  Manchester to try on some bridesmaids dresses. It wasn’t to fine “the one”, per say, but to find a style that will suit all of the girls. I’m the shortest and biggest, LDB is probably the tallest and around the same dress size as 2 of the others. So it’s no mean feat trying to find a style that suits us all!

Something to think about Mrs T2B!

Yes there are 18 months to go before Mrs T2B marries the wonderful Mr T, but it’s never too soon to start. What the day held in store was laughs (satin is a no go for everyone), disappointment (bridesmaids dresses that aren’t satin are hard to find and black is nigh on impossible) and, on my part, frustration. I lost count of how many times I said “Well, I’ll try it on to give you an idea but it wont fit me”. Not one dress that I tried on would do up. And I had the super attractive nude sucky inny pants on. Mortifying.

This occasion calls for really big knickers

I know that it’s all my own doing. I know that I am lazy and that I need to make positive changes. Which I am now doing. Mrs T2B has lost a phenomenal amount of weight for the amount of time she has been on WW (please don’t go too far..) and looks fabulous, BFF has done the same, now it’s my turn. 3 years ago, at G’s 21st I look so happy, this is what I need to get back too – goodbye land of photos taken from above to hide the double chin, see ya putting cushions in front of me when I sit down, sayonara wearing blazers everytime I go out just so no one sees my arms. I am done.

So. I will be updating this more regularly, with a post every Tuesday to see how I’m getting on, then daily posts with little things that have made me smile or kept me going. These will be themed..I’ll have to get thinking of some witty names!

Matthe McConaughey. Why the hell not.

Failure to Launch is on, what a film.

Anywho. Manchester on Friday woo-ahoo! 14 days till holidays woo-ahoo! Then it’s Lakes, Ball, Lakes, BarBeDew…fabulous darling.
