Well....I haven't been on here for a long time. Sorry about that. Been a very busy girl. But I thought I would pop back on here and give an update of my progress so far.

So I have been doing Slimming World for about 14 weeks now, to date I have lost 1 Stone. I have also had some losses followed buy some gains. I let my sweet tooth run free with me for a while, but I'm fully on the band wagon again!

I have also started doing pilates classes every week and wait for it....I went to MetaFit!

METAFIT - 30 Mins of sheer hell followed by 6 days of agony. It was intense! I used to do Insanity and even started Jillian Michael's Body revolution and I have to be honest, Metafit killed me. It probably doesn't help I forgot my water bottle in the car and half way through I had to run away to the bathroom and drink from the tap. Yep I was shattered!

I then spent 6 days whimpering at every little movement.

Now last week I had a gain. I had a bad week of sugar filled goodies and letting myself go a little and it followed with a gain. I then decided I needed a good pick up the butt to get me back in gear. I have done a week of 'SP' Slimming world this week. It is basically meals filled with speed food and protein. No carbs and pretty much no dairy. It is hard and for anyone wanting to give it a go, I would suggest planning every meal down to the last bit. The advantages of SP is that you get one healthy Extra A choice and two B choices. 

I tried making oat cookies...they are a bit chewy though. Girls gotta get her sugar someway.

I have noticed that this week I have struggled with tiredness. I am lacking in energy and needing naps to keep myself going throughout the day. Right now all I want to do is sleep.

Tomorrow is weigh in day. I will keep you updated with my progress.

The Year of Fresh Starts

Yeyyyy first post of 2018!! I'm determined to utilise my blog and actually pay it some TLC this year.
Last year I was still getting to grips with sewing and learning new skills. I had lots of plans but like most times, life got in the way.
Throughout the year I saw lots of different sewing based challenges and decided that this year I would complete at least one of them. I was interested in the Wardrobe Builder Challenge and the Make Nine Challenge.
Enough is enough, lets get motivated! January is the time where people make resolutions which 9 times out of 10 they break by the time January ends. Since 2018 is already playing out to be a year of change and fresh starts for me, now I thought was the perfect time to plan some goals. Setting goals for lifestyle/health (totally making a bucket list but I swear it's getting longer and longer) and crafting based goals, starting with a challenge set for the year. Make Nine Challenge BRING IT ON!

Career Change Up

Exciting, Sad and Scary Times Lie Ahead! So over my 'many' years I've had various jobs, all with their pro's and con's and their highs and lows. I've been a; Disney Store Cast Member (basically got paid to let my Disney fanatic loose), Boots Sales Assistant (selling make-up to stroppy teenagers and medical bits and bobs to cute old people), Assistant in Vue Cinema (got to see films for free and before they came out), Student Ambassador (paid to walk round campus talking about the Uni...easy peasy) and then I graduated and life suddenly became hard.

I taught in Moscow, Russia for 3 years, I was about to write beautiful years but that may have been taking it a step too far. They were 3 of the coldest years of my life in winter but beautiful summers. I would recommend St Petersburg to anyone as it was stunning. Teaching abroad really built up my confidence and allowed me to enjoy a travelling lifestyle, visiting places during school holidays. Expat life is AMAZING…

This is what having a life looks like!

So I've been complaining recently that I have no life. My life consists of waking up, going to work, getting in late, eat, sleep and repeat. Now I know, I know, most peoples lives are like this but I've never worked so much that my social life and general wellbeing has gone down the pan and my trip to London was the start of me seeing there is more to life than working.

London was truly AMAZING! I love cities and I love London! The busy streets, the hustle and bustle of people shopping, commuting and touring. The truly amazing food from both lavish places and the quaint cafe's. The beautiful scenery and attractions. The list goes on. It is times like these that I realise how much I miss teaching abroad and having these types of experiences on my doorstep.

My amazing time started with taking my mother down to London for her 50th birthday. We enjoyed a relaxed train journey, slightly stressful underground journey (my mother doesn't do crowds). When the room wasn't re…
