Keeping your home in tip top condition is a very time consuming process, and often we can’t get the job done properly because of the sheer amount of tasks that are required to keep it clean! However, there are a few things that you can put in place to make your house an easier place to maintain, but what are these things? Well, if you read on, you’ll find out! Read more
April is here, spring is upon us, which means lots of long days spent in the garden are ahead. With Jacob being at school now, and Noah now going to nursery for three mornings a week, I will also have the garden all to myself for a few hours a week – heaven! Well, I will be sharing it with a dog now, also…
We moved into this house one and a half years ago, and have done quite a bit of work on the garden already; but, we still don’t have it near where we want it. I know we will get there eventually though, and I hope we can put some work into it this summer, so it is all ready for us to enjoy completely next year! Read more
It’s been a few months now since I reached target; just over three of them, in fact. It does actually feel like it’s been longer to be honest. I haven’t shared an update since becoming a target member so I thought it was about time I got my thoughts down on paper; well, virtual paper! I was going to say, I can’t remember the last time I went to weigh in dreading getting on the scales, but that wouldn’t be entirely true. The truth is, I’ve been really struggling for most of the year already, and it’s almost March! Read more
January; the most popular month of the year for people to decide they want to lose weight, or to get a bit fitter and healthier. I certainly know that was the case for me a couple of years ago when I decided to join Slimming World; but, my main focus at that time was just to lose weight.
During my weight loss journey I haven’t really exercised; with the exception of taking up running for a few weeks and then life got in the way, and I haven’t really done any since. This year though, I want to focus on getting fitter. I pretty much have the healthy eating down to a tee now; most of the time, anyway! We all
want need to let go once in a while, right? Read more
I think last week’s weigh in had to be my favourite one ever; I reached target! It took a few days for it to sink in, but I didn’t really go overboard in celebration like I might have expected to… In actual fact, I was still on plan for most of the week. I did have a Subway for lunch on the day of weigh in, but it was the first thing I’d really had off plan.
I don’t usually eat heavily on a weigh in day, but I decided that I had my target range to ‘play’ with, so it didn’t matter so much. Of course, it doesn’t mean I should do it all of the time, which I won’t; I just won’t restrict myself so much on a weigh day any more!
