After two weeks I got back to the gym today! I was so excited- really! I need the gym in order to eat well. I can't do one without the other! The icy weather and being sick meant that I couldn't work out for the last while and by this week I was seriously worried. So it was with bated breath that I approached the weighing scale in the gym.... DUN DUN DUN.... 79kgs!
So I lost the 2lbs I had on and am back at PLATEAU.... AGAIN!!
Really pleased though because I've totally ditched the healthy eating and was feeling so fat.
I'm motivated to get back to normal as soon as Christmas is over. I'm in disbelief that I didn't gain a few lbs so will try not to push it over the next week!


I have been off the radar for the last couple of weeks mainly because I've been unhealthy and uninspired. I'll be back soon though!
I got my hair done again though! Yay!
Also sooooooooooooooo excited for Christmas!! :D

2lbs up and snowed in

So pissed with this weather- snowy and icy sucks, especially with our oil gone in the apartment. All I've wanted to eat for the last few days is crap. I've been doing so well too. The weather is also making my gym visits difficult because the paths on the way are too slippy. I got there today but it wasn't very safe.
Such a bad combo- increased appetite and an inability to work out. Tomorrow I'm going to try to eat well and do some excercising at home. Although, right now I'm feeling ill so hope I'm not coming down with something. :( Bad week in all! >:(

It was too slippy on the footpaths so I couldn't get to the gym today! Grrrrr!!! :(


This weekend I was a p-i-g! Because I'm so close to Xmas goal, I let myself slack off a bit this weekend. Or a lot!

2 bottles of red wine, 1 bottle of white wine, 5 pints of beer (Bud and Coors Light), lasagne, chicken tenders , chips and Coke, pizza, Galaxy Minstrels, Lucozade, and my normal Chinese (salt/chilli shredded chicken) with chips instead of boiled rice. WTF!!!
I think it's because I've been doing well and curbed a lot of cravings and sub consciously decided that I was going to have a treat weekend. Seriously though, I way overdid it and will just be happy not to have put on weight today. A week of soup and smoothies beckons.
To put a positive spin- I'm ready and kind of glad to go back to my normal 'weekday' habits. I feel better in so many ways when I eat well. It's an achievement to WANT to eat healthily. So my little holiday from the diet has shown me that I'm starting to enjoy my healthier lifestyle and that eating crappy food won't enhance my life in ANY way! It did taste damn good though!! :P

Not much but something!

I weighed myself at the gym today and noticed the sign for conversions for kilos to lbs. I realised that I've been converting 1 kilo to 2lbs and not bearing in mind that it's 2.2 so missed a couple of pounds here and there so I'm actually 3 lbs less than I thought! 79 kilos= 174 lbs= 12stone 6lbs. I though I was 12.9!!! :O
So my weight jumps down 3lbs without any weightloss! Haha!!!
So I'm currently 4 lbs from Christmas goal! :)

Gorgeous plum lipstick

Haha- funny face! It's hard to photograph the colour properly!

Crappy packaging though! This is pretty new and looks so scraped. And I hate price stickers that don't come off cleanly.

I love the trend for purple lips at the moment. When the live shows of X Factor began, I started lusting after Belle-Amie style lippies. I had a hunt around and found Maybelline Color Sensational in Midnight Plum- a more subtle, wearable shade that really works for me. I love the finish of these lipsticks- soft, moisturising and with a slight sheen.
Also from the Color Sensational range, I love this pink, Pink Punch.

Booo! I was down 4 lbs on Saturday and only down 3 today! Oh well, still progress. Going to try not to weigh myself til Monday again.

Asos package

I ran excitedly to the post office earlier to collect my package and the queue was out the door- bloody Christmas packages! Eventually I picked up my ASOS package and practically ran home.
My shoes are ridiculous- high, platform heeled and very dangerous.... but gorgeous all the same!
The first dress wouldnt zip up above the waist- hoping a different bra and reaching my Christmas goal will take care of that . I think it'll be flattering once it fits!
The second dress is verging on too big. It is definitely not fitted enough on the waist, even with a little belt. So, with more weight loss on the cards, I'm exchanging it for a 12. Wooooo!! I know that it's because the sizes obviously run big on the particular dress but ordering a 12 definitely has big feel-good factor!
So, one too big and one too small. Definitely a 14 now then! :D
I'm off to eat lunch now and head off to the gym and to weigh myself. Hoping for 4/ 5 lbs off since last Tuesday. Will update later.

:O Sugar-free Polo mints are not my friend

In my effort to curb cravings I've been consuming lots of low calorie snacks; apples, carrot sticks, rice cakes etc.. This week I thought I'd give mints a try; at 80 calories for a whole packet where could I go wrong?!? The answer? Shart. Yep, shart.. as in shit and fart.


There is a warning on the label saying that excessive consumption may produce a laxative effect. But to me, excessive would be like three packs. I ate almost a full one and very nearly had an accident- well actually I kinda did. Ew! Thank God it didn't happen in public!!
So, believe me when I say- sugar-free Polos: use with caution.


I'm sitting in the office at my Mum's work helping out for a few hours and wearing my size 14 trousers! :)

I was so annoyed because I missed my delivery from ASOS yesterday and went in to the post office with the slip to pick it up today and was told they don't do package collection on Saturday! Grrrrr! It's a post office.... POST office! What's the point of being open if I can't pick up my damned post?!!?!So now I've to wait til Monday and I'm very anxious to try these size 14 dresses on and see if they fit and if they look in any way nice!

Also on Monday is my weigh-in. I've been cheating and weighing myself at the gym and apparently I've lost 4lbs since Tuesday but it's not official til Monday.

The gym is going well. I've been 4 times this week including swimming twice as well as my usual mixture of weights and cardio, weight machines and free weights with fitness ball. I'm trying to remember to keep my core engaged as much as possible too. Food-wise I've been doing good this week too- mostly healthy meals and snacks and generally low-calorie.

Yesterday, though, I relaxed for the day and had some treats. I'd a pint of Coors Light, over half of a homemade pepper and chorizo pizza (I went light on the chorizo and cheese and heavy on the fresh chillis) as well as half a bag of microwave popcorn and 2 packets of Banshee Bones which are my weakness (at least they're only about 100 calories per pack). I also had some chicken and veg soup and a couple of apples with peanut butter as well as water, Coke Zero, 2 cups of green tea and 2 double expressos.

Saturday night is looming which means white wine and X Factor. Tomorrow I'll probably sleep all day, eat something low calorie like soup (surprise, surprise) and then get my usual Chinese takeaway of (dry, battered) salt and chilli chicken and boiled rice- cos I'm badass like that! And then it's Monday and my weigh-in and Asos dresses! Can't wait!

Size 14 bitches!

I'm helping out at my Mum's work tomorrow so tried on some work trousers I bought a looooooong time ago that wouldn't fit me! THEY FIT!! SIZE 14 BITCHES!!!!!!!!
That is all!

On my soup diet

So I was meant to be on a soup and smoothie diet but I didn't buy my fruit so had soups and a W W frozen dinner as well as some snacks.
Today I ate:

*Veg and chicken soup: 115 cals
W W Spag bol 306 cals
1 slice Hovis Nimble wholemeal bread 48 cals
*Mexican chilli soup 135 cals 604
Half a packet of sugar free Polo mints 40 cals
Granny Smith apple x 3 198 cals
*Veg and chicken soup 115cals
Activia fat free forest fruit 58 cals

2 green teas**
2 peppermint teas
Double expresso

1015- wow that's low! And I'm not hungry! I'm totally not doing this daily but I want to start changing my eating patterns. I 'm doing 2 days to kickstart a healthier routine and then might do a day here and there on the days I'm not working out. Any more and I'd start going crazy missing real food. (I'd also probably faint at the gym.) On my gym days I'll be aiming for 1300- 1500 ish.

*Soups are Tesco own brand. Half a carton is a portion and, although they're a little high in salt, they are really low in calories while being quite filling. They're chunky so I add a little water, pepper and chilli and puree them because I hate the chunks. I know pre-made soups aren't the healthiest but they're crazy handy, on special offer at the minute, taste good and there's no difficulty calculating calories.

Also plan to get a good workout in tomorrow. I skipped the gym because I was busy today and my muscles were sore from Tuesday's workout- think it was the fitness ball exercises with weights that did it. I'd a nice swim afterwards too, which I hadn't done in a few weeks. I want to get back into that habit so will be trying to get a swim in tomorrow as well as a good weight/ cardio mix.
** Throw away your condoms peeps- you're protected!(Click on the pic to read more.)


Where I'm at:

Ok, so it's a bad picture but even with that you can see I have a belly, regardless of the angle.
November:I'm def getting more waist definition and less belly. SLOWLY getting there!
(Excuse the visible bra. Turns out I don't have many plain black bras. Silly pink ribbons! )
** First outfit is from New Look in size 16 but could have benefit from some Spanx-esque support!
** Second outfit: Top (14), jacket (14) and jewellry are Primark. Skirt (with belt) is from ASOS (16).

So yesterday and today I lowered my calorie intake significantly. Tomorrow will be a soup and smoothie day. May do it for Thursday too if I'm not too hungry.

I had put on a pound but I've lost it and am back at 12.12. I've decided I need to stop weighing myself so often and from now on it'll be on Mondays only. The next few Mondays are important!

Christmas kicks off for me on Saturday 18th when I'll visit my sexy bitch friend Charlene in Galway, two hours away. A night of hijinks will ensue no doubt seeing as that is the unofficial night of the 12 pubs of Christmas.

(The 12 pubs is a popular kick-off of the festivities. It's a big, messy pub crawl with rules. One drink per bar in a certain time frame with a certain amount of loo breaks and so on. Dirty Irish alcos, eh?! I don't know that I fully approve because I know me with 12 drinks and it ain't pretty but each to their own!)

Anyway, so I'm working towards Christmas size 14 and it will have to be achieved by the 18th which, as of now ( 2.40am 24th Nov), gives me 25 days. I don't know how many lbs this will take but if I can be losing 2 a week, I'll be well pleased!

Aaaaaand plateau

Time to go hardcore. Haven't lost anything in the last couple of weeks. I need to address this straight away. So pissed off! So I need to step up the gym, cut calories and cut down on the treats. I want to be in size 14 for Christmas.

Don't go changin'

Oh dear! I've been talking with lots of different people and been around a lot of people trying to lose weight. I have also become aware that a lot of people are out to prove things with their weight loss. I would like to think I'm losing the pounds because it will help ME in the long run, not impress other people. I let myself slide down the slippery slope; ignoring how big I was getting, burying my head in the sand and thinking that if I 'OWN' it, then it's fine (even if I was secretly deeeeeeeeeeeply unhappy). So now, every so often, I look in the mirror and feel good! I'm regaining control of my body. It is a JOURNEY and not an easy one but there is no need to be a dick just because you're on track.

I know a girl who has lost a lot of weight- who never even had MUCH to lose- and is seemingly determined to draw attention to how different she is now; not physically but in her lifestyle. It makes me sad because she seemed very much an 'OWN IT' type of girl. I get that you're proud of yourself but there's more to a person than their dress size.

Weightloss is only one part of your life but because weight and body image are so important to women it can really effect other aspects of life. I'm lucky because my housemate has joined Unislim so is very much on the wagon and we can talk about shared excitement when we drop a few pounds and are very supportive of each other. It's nice to cut through the bullshit and be honest. Weightloss is as simple as eat less, excercise more. There's no need to be a total psycho about it. It's not easy but it shouldnt rule your life either.

I look good eh?!

So eating wise things are not quite ideal. But, on the other hand, exercise is going well. I've been at the gym 6 out of the last 7 days! Some days are more productive than others and I havent been swimming in weeks (which I miss but it's too cold and miserable to walk home from the gym with wet hair). Still, though, things are generally going well. I'm mixing cardio and weights and lots of stretching and messing around on the ball and with dumbbells. I also have the 15/20 minute walk to and from the gym which is usually brink because it's rainy as helllll these days!

It's less than 6 weeks to Chrstmas now so I really need to get back in the game. Diet is key!! When Kate Moss was quoted as saying "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." there was uproar with people saying she was encouraging anorexia etc.. Well, whatever about that, she has a point. You aren't going to look how you want to and eat all in sight. Balance is the key.

I'm struggling with my late evening snacking. I haven't even eaten anything too bad all week but I'm eating too much at night. I really want to get to goal by Summer and I won't if I don't kick my ass in gear! As it is, I definitely won't hit my Christmas goal. :( So that spells the end of my generous late night snacking.

That being said, I WILL still treat myself if I really want it but I DEFINITELY need to start questioning whether I do want it.

On that note, check out Suzi Storm's tips. I love her no bullshit attitude!

Feelin goooood

Weightloss is going well, though I weigh myself more than I should (at least twice a week). On Wednesday I had put on a pound but I lost it and another by today. So another pound down! :)

I only made it to the gym twice this week and probably won't make it Sunday so will only be 3 times and I have been aiming for 5. I'm not bothered though really. Going for quality over quantity and my two workouts this week have been great- sweaty and long and varied. (Haha that sounds really pervy!)

Also not beating myself up over diet. As long as I'm not overeating or existing on junk, I think it's healthier to eat plenty and not deprive myself and have a couple of unhealthy or calorific snacks if I really want them. I know what I'm like and if I went cold turkey on all the 'bad' foods, I'd end up binging and falling off the wagon or else I'd reach goal and then treat myself by pigging out and resuming bad habits. It makes a lot more sense to me to maintain an 80% success rate from week to week. As long as I'm losing weight, I'm doing something right!

Primark/ Penney's accessories

I'm really poor but can't resist the occassional trip to Penney's. I picked up a cute bag, €9
a little charm necklace €2 and so tackily cute!
and three cheap and cheerful rings. Loving the ironic cheap accessories like the floral knuckleduster €3 (the black patches are from my camera or computer)
and the oversized silver ring. €3
They'll be a fun contrast with my usual style of pencil skirts and streamlined shapes for nights out. This cameo is really cute too. I don't like to wear much jewellry so a statement ring is cute and simple.€3
I also got some kinda ugly boots to keep my feet warm and dry.

Can't believe it's November

I've lost 3lbs more! I am now 12.13! Yay! Under 13 stone now and striving for 12ish by Christmas.
Gym is going really well. Back on track and I'm feeling great. I'm doing less cardio and more weights. A personal trainer I know (not MY personal trainer- I'm not that swank) advised me that high reps of low weights would do a lot better for me at this stage. Cardio after a few months kind of plateaus. So for the last two weeks I've been doing less cardio and doing it with weights when I do.
I'm still cheating a bit diet wise but I'm eating mostly healthy stuff. I'm allowing myself hangover days and treats though and having a takeaway once a week- swap the fried rice for boiled though. Saturday nights are for drinking still but it does seem that my resistance has gone down so it's hard to get the right balance between sober and hammered.
Keeping a food diary is hugely helpful. I'm addicted to peppermint tea at the moment and having something to drink helps me from eating myself out of house and home! Eat lots of protein and drink lots of water peeps!!

Pictures are from Halloween obviously!! I was a living doll!

Update: weightloss and goals

So I've been AWOL from not just my blog but also the gym. For the whole month of September I'd say I went about 5 times! In my defence, I had a busy month moving home from Spain and then into my new apartment at the beginning of this month. And then my gym membership was up. So, my main focus for the last 6 weeks or so has been weight maintenance til I get back on track and on the fitness shizz again.
So, when I rejoined the gym on Friday, I was really shocked to see that I'd lost another 2lbs! I was really happy with myself, especially when I realised that put me a quarter of the way through my weightloss! :)
It seems like a good time to set out my goals. Some are long shots when it comes to timing but I think that I haven't really tried THAT hard to lose weight- at least diet-wise- so far, so if I can step it up a notch I CAN achieve this!

  • Overall weightloss goal: From 14stone to 10stone 4lbs. (3 stone 10lbs/ 46lbs)
  • Current weight: 13stone 2lbs (12lbs loss)
  • Christmas weight: 12 stone 2lbs **long shot- would be happy to be under 12 and a half
  • Goal weight reached by April 2011 (As of now, 34lbs to go)
I think I lost weight, in spite of not working out, because I was aware that I had to keep myself in check food-wise.
Also, I am drinking less. Over the Summer I'd often be out two nights and then drink in my sister's on another night. These days it's usually one and I've also cut out the random drinks here and there.
Another thing that's really helping is the fact that almost everyone I know is watching their weight at the moment! My best friend/housemate has lost 9lbs in the last 2 weeks! Go her!! And another friend of ours has lost a couple of stone in the last few months and is looking very slim indeed. I think when that happens you really feel that you need to up your game. Three of my sisters have been working out and dieting recently too and they look great! So it's time for me to really get back on track.
One thing I have to watch out for though is post-gym treats! I've been to the gym 3 times since Friday and every time I leave the gym I'm starving and really proud of myself- not a good combo! On Monday I ended up getting a bag of chips to reward myself. Fine once in a while but not a good habit!
Here's another eye look using the 88 Ultra Shimmer palette. I hardly ever wear blue eyeshadow these days so thought it'd be nice for a change from all my neutrals. Also made the mistake of cutting my fringe short again- eugh please GROW!

Finally, I just wanted to thank everyone who reads my blabbering. I'm way behind on my blog reading at the moment so hope everyone is doing well and all my fellow dieters are staying on track. I'm getting the internet soon so will be back to my normal blog stalking/ sporadic posting habits soon.

Weightloss/FItness update

  • I think I'm on the road back! I've been to the gym twice this week- yay!!
  • On Monday I did a helluva lot of weights because I really felt that as I hadn't put on weight, I needed to make sure I was doing something for the muscle tone that I had started to develop before I fell off the wagon. So, after an hour walk to get to the gym (I live in the country), I did 30 minutes cardio- 10 on treadmill and 20 on wave machine followed by inner thigh, outer thigh and 3 different sets of upper arm weights and some sit-ups. (I was so proud that I ate some crisps after- bad Claire!)
  • Tonight I did something similar- 10 minutes cross trainer, 20 minutes wave machine followed by some painful situps, inner and outer thigh as well as upper arms. This was followed by 20 minutes of swimming at a fairly leisurely pace. I think that's my winning combo- variety + lots of weights! I just need to step up on the situps aspect because my stomache is still very untoned which sucks as I've definitely slimmed down around my waist in the last couple of months.
  • Food-wise I've been good(ish) since Monday, though I'm still a late night snack fiend. I'm just trying to keep myself full during the day in as a healthy a way as possible so if I want to be bad in the evening it isn't a total disaster. I know that it's VERY BAAAAAAD to eat at night but I stay up late and it's force of habit which has been made worse by my teaching hours over the last 2 years. It's EVEN worse now that I'm unemployed. At least I can stay up late most nights anyway- what with having nothing to wake up for!!
  • Anyway, point being; weighed myself again tonight and I'm still the same. I'm very pleased with that. I wasn't expecting a loss, was just frightened I'd have put on weight! Hopefully I can settle into a routine again soon. Problem is my gym membership is up this week and I'm moving this weekend so I'm going to be too busy to change gym AND work out when it's the weekend and there is moving to be done and beverages to be consumed. Oh dear! I'll keep you guys posted and, in the meantime, will try to be healthy so I can report some weightloss again!!

Divine Dark Lipsticks

  • Seeing as Autumn has well and truely arrived, fashion magazines will dictate it's time to darken up your look. I have no problem with channelling my inner goth but don't really want to end up looking like Marilyn Manson.
  • Therefore, quality and quantity are both to be observed in achieving a balanced and pretty dark lip look. My favourite lipstick brand is definitely Guerlain. Their Kiss Kiss lippies are old school luxe with a gorgeous formula that's easily applied. They smell lovely and the colours are rich and beautiful.
Guerlain Kiss Kiss Extreme Rouge Infini(120)

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Folie de Grenat(525)

  • If you don't care about the luxurious aspect, then try NYX Round lipsticks. I'd recommend Snow White for that dark Autumnal red wine look.
NYX Round lipstick in Snow White (569)

Lipgloss addicts should try this offering from Rimmel if you can find it.

Rimmel Volume Boost Liquid Lipcolour in Lavish (050)

I found mine in a discount store. It's very pigmented, has a glassy appearance and has that lip plumping tingle.

  • I have seen dark brown lips around this season but I'm sorry- ew! I loved trying on my Mum's Rimmel Heather Shimmerback in the day but now it just looks so dated to me. And noone wants to look like they've been felching!

A short one about cheap lipgloss

A few weeks ago, in spite of owning far too much makeup, I felt the need to buy some new lipgloss. Luckily I was quite skint so didn't end up with Lancome or MAC (though I never buy MAC lipgloss, to be fair)! Instead I popped into Boots and had a look at lower end makeup. There was a 3 for 2 offer on Collection 2000 so it seemed rude not to! My sister got one and I got the other two.

Although incredibly gimmicky, Hotlights is just a regular run of the mill gloss. It's not incredibly pigmented but that's kind of a plus in my book as it matches with more lipsticks. Neither is it vilely sticky and gloopy, which is something I can't bear. As you can see from the pictures, the colours are inoffensive but pretty enough to bring some shine to your lipsticks or just polishing up a daytime minimal look. The light and mirror aspect is not something that would make me rush out to buy it but I'm sure it appeals to some younger girls! So, if you see these on offer again, they're worth trying out .

Much needed update

Spongebob has his dick out!
Oh dear! I am extremely sucky! I have totally neglected my bloggy world recently. Oooops! So here comes the update:
My hair looks well strange here but I haven't changed it.
  • I decided Spain was no longer viable- in order to do my post grad next year or the year after, I need to be Ireland-based (to get a grant). This sucks immensely because I LOVED my Spanish life but, then, what's not to love about four day weeks, a great work environment complete with hilarious students and great bosses, and, of course, crazy weekends?! But that is, in the end, is liiiife! Not going to get all boo hoo, even if Ireland has ZERO jobs for people like me! I'm moving into a fun apartment with my best mate and we're going to be dole scum for a while!!! Haha! I will miss the perving on Spanish men but am already being a total sex-pest to at least one lad and have a couple of "options" if I get real desperate!!! Hahaha! And I have never really lived in my hometown as an adult so at least I'll experience that!
  • Edel and I were in Spain last week tying up the loose ends. It was fun and sad at the same time. (The photos are some random ones from the week there. Very, very random ones!)
  • I have been taking pictures with the intention of blogging on myriad topics. As soon as I get a little more settled those will start to appear!
I just find this creepy somehow!
  • I have been listening to some great music so will be posting some of that probably too.
  • I have almost totally fallen off the gym/ diet wagon over the last three weeks so very much need to get back to brass tacks. I have not gained weight though and have made it to the gym a few times. I'm still at 84 kg where I was 89 when I first returned to using weighing scales'! (Haha!) I am motivated enough that I think I can get to 12 stone-ish by Christmas. (Weighing myself in kilos at the gym but still think in pounds and stone. I have around one and a half stone that I want gone by Christmas.)
Random parade shiz!
  • I have kinda been following all my blogs but have probably missed loads and it bugs me! Hope you guys haven't been up to too much! :P
  • I still suck at formatting these posts. I could really use some lessons on how to use Blogger! Sorry peeps. I suck!
And that's about it for now. I hope all you guys are well. Please , as always, feel free to comment, email, whatever! Thanks for reading!!

Weight-loss update

I had a crazy weekend of drinking and eating waaaay too much. I was visiting friends so that was my excuse. When I last went to the gym (Saturday), I'd lost 2 more pounds. I was all excited but then the diet went totally by the wayside as I was away from home and partying. I ate chips 3 days running and had pizza twice and a chinese too. That's on top of a lot of beer, gin and shots! Eurgh! So tomorrow I'm back at the gym and I'm so worried I'm gonna be up like 4lbs! :( Back to reality from now on. I'm heading back to Spain in a week and a half and would love to have lost another 4lbs to make it a full stone of weightloss. (It's actually more I'd say but I wasn't weighing myself when I first came home. I've only been counting since around the 10th of July. Anyway, camera is still out of action but here are some pics from Sunday night when my friend Charlene was getting camera happy(and pervin on my arse, haha)! Blouse and skirt are from New Look, tights are by Pretty Polly from and shoes are Primark from last year.

How could I do such a thing?!

I was trying to get a picture of me and my two best mates together for the last post. How could I have overlooked these ones???!!:

I lived with the 2 girlies in Korea for a year. Even aside from that time, there are loadsa of cool pictures floatin round. This one has to be one of the best of the 3 of us togther. I was hanging out in my room one night after work in my trackies and decided to layer some more sports clothes on top. I arranged some excellent camel-toeage and went out to the girls. Soon all three of us were in 80s dodgy workout video mode with underwear as outerwear and bad hair and makeup, lifting weights. Then we decided to go on a beer run and play in the kiddy playground outside. Good times!xx
