For anyone still following the diet saga...

You will be pleased to know I'm still sticking with it and have lost 9 pounds now. It's been easier than I thought but this week was harder than the first 2 weeks. I'm starting to feel a little thinner but it will be a long time before I look any different...and a long time before I'll be posting any pics!

Week 2 diet update

Just a quick update for those wondering if I've got so hungry I've eaten my own arms yet....lost 5 pounds this week...woo hoo! So that makes 7 pounds in total...and one happy woman LOL.

Every day this is getting a bit easier as new habits start to form - in fact, I've been surprised at how it hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be...if you know what I mean. The trouble though is sticking to these things long term.

I usually deal with stress by eating...and I lead a very stressful life, so now I'm having to find new ways to deal with it. I haven't really come up with anything yet, except getting overly emotional and angry. So I guess, right now, I'm not really a woman who should be crossed LOL.  Hopefully I will find new ways to deal with it soon enough, but one thing's for sure, I can't keep reaching for that loaf of bread every time I get stressed.

A dieter's best friend...

Need I say more? LOL
So it's been 2 weeks today since I started trying to eat healthier and I have absolutely not the foggiest how I'm doing weight-wise LOL. Sure I get weighed but it's never on the same set of scales (so far) and my own at home are..well...dodgy....putting it bluntly. On Wednesday I will go back to WW though so will have my second reliable weight to compare it with. Last week I lost 2 pounds and must admit to feeling a little disappointed. It's just that with so much weight to lose and with it being the first week I really did expect more. I was in a funk about it but I'm over it now..just need to plod on and get on with it! I have no idea what I weigh but I do feel thinner already and I seem to be more comfortable, so I'll be surprised if I haven't lost anything. Anyway, I'll try and update on Wednesday.

Now...anyone wanna join me for a nice coffee?

Random news

Life has been very busy here, hence the lack of pics from my recent trip to Bristol. I'm on a training course at work too which means that instead of just working a full time day job and a full time evening/weekend job, I'm also doing 40 hours a month training and 40 hours a month on a project which goes along with the training. When do I get time to sleep? I'm wondering that myself...

Anyway, the above might explain why my graphics blog (and my other blogs) have been sadly neglected lately, but I am still trying to keep things on schedule. I'm still getting through my designs, albeit slower than I'd have hoped...I simply can't keep up with demand at the moment...wait, that's a good thing, right?

My mum and dad are supposed to be going away on holiday tomorrow but it looks like flights in/out of the UK will still be cancelled by then. Poor things, they really need that holiday too...volcanoes suck...unless you're a geologist I guess.

Ok, well more random news later - just letting you know I'm still here and still trying to post tose photos from my recent-ish trip to Bristol!

A quick update

Will post a better update tomorrow, but just wanted to quickly share what we've done on Saturday...before I collapse into bed LOL.

Today we visitied Brunel's ship, SS Great Britain and the Blue Reef Aquarium. More tomorrow about these, but here's a brief taster...I'm saving my good pics for the better update but here's a couple of nsaps...

Guess where I'm heading tonight?

Guess where I'm heading tonight......

....yup, right across the road to the pub. I love weekends away....bliss :)

Woo 100th post!

Welcome to my 100th post...on this blog LOL. I think my other blog must have 500-600 by now!

Well, my holiday has started and I'm currently on my way down to the south of  England....yay!!!  I've talked Andy into driving, which leaves me free to answer emails and do some blogging. Typing, even as a passenger, takes some talent I can tell you. I'll fill you in more on our plans later but I just wanted to let you know I'm still witing on this blog and I plan to update it this weekend while I'm on my travels.

PS...we have some awful weather in front of us...typical! LOL
