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.
