Well I was a good girl today…. and I didn’t have pancakes! Basically, my boyfriends on a diet and I’m on a fitness kick so I’m trying to be as supportive to him & as good to me as I can.
However, my boyfriend treated me to a little something:
How sweet of him! He knew we wouldn’t have pancakes so got me him as a treat instead 🙂 Just filled my chocolate fix too! I’m going to have to be very good for the next few days!
I didn’t go for a walk with my friend tonight, as I’m suffering with my back today, however I shall be carrying on again tomorrow!
What did you have on your pancakes(lucky people!) ?
Yes, I have finally crumbled and decided that I need to get fit. My boyfriend and half of my friends are all dieting/keeping fit so I thought I may as well do so whilst I’ve got some company to share the pain with 😛
I kid. But, seriously, I’ve always said I am going to do it, but I never do. I attempted Zumba once, but I was so out of breath after a couple of dances that I haven’t been since! Also, recently, I have been suffering a lot with my back (I have a bad back), and my doctor has prescribed painkillers and referred me to physiotherapy. I’ve decided that I am going to take a brisk walk each evening to start with, and then build up to a jog when I feel up to it. Hopefully, with the help of healthy eating, I shall lose some weight and maybe it will alleviate some of the pain.
I’ve also just heard that my local gym only costs £20 a month, or £5 for a one-off trip. I may have to take a little mooch up there! So I’m sitting here in my trackie bottoms, hoodie and trainers, having got in from a walk with my good friend Sophie, and I can’t wait to do more. Roll on tomorrow night, I say!
Are any of you dieting or trying to get fit?
What methods do you use?
I am so very sorry for the lack of posts recently. This weekend has been far more hectic than I ever expected and I have literally had no time to blog over the past couple of days. Thursday night, my friend and her boyfriend broke up rather badly, and my Friday evening was spent looking after her.
Another of my friends has been in hospital for three weeks, and was released on Friday – it was his birthday on Saturday, so me and S invited him and my friend who’d just split up with her boyfriend, round for a curry and a movie night.
I was going to blog a lot yesterday, but I was so exhausted from looking after everybody else over the previous days, that I only got up about 1pm, and I was going for a family meal at 4pm! I was also going to blog about my meal, but my camera packed up, and the service was so slow, that I didn’t arrive home until after 8pm – I eventually blogged a short post, but all I wanted was to curl up on the sofa with a good book, and a steaming mug of hot chocolate, which is exactly what I did.
Today is the first day I’ve actually had to gather my thoughts, and what a luxury it has been! Tomorrow I probably will not post as well, as I have an all day shift at work, then I am meeting another friend of mine, who has recently split up with her boyfriend. Girly night with wine or cocktails is obviously on the cards!
How was your weekend? Hope you all had a great couple of days! Why don’t you comment & let me know? Also, is anyone interested in the ‘Five Favourite Things’ feature? I am planning on kickstarting this within the next couple of days, as well as finally putting up the post about my 21st birthday beauty haul!
Well, as you know, I went to a family meal earlier on, and decided beforehand I was going to take a load of pictures to put in my album – and finally fill it up after three years! (See, I told you that you had to be special to be in it!)
Unfortunately, my camera decided to give up the ghost and wouldn’t even turn on for me to take pictures. So now, all I have is a couple of pictures of me, my Mum and my Nan, rather than the whole family 🙁
I’m really disappointed in it to be perfectly honest, but at least it means I can pester S to buy me a new one!
I was going to write a long post tonight, however, I’m in the mood to curl up on the sofa with a good book (I’m currently reading Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella), in front of the fire, with either a glass of chilled Lift lemon tea (it’s so yummy!) or an Options hot chocolate – I’m slightly swaying towards the hot chocolate at the minute! I’m also going to take the time to finish putting my photos that I recently got printed from Photobox into my album.
If you haven’t tried Photobox, I’d take a look – it’s certaintly one of the cheapest places around to get your photos printed, and the range of photo products they do is amazing! Once me and S move into our own place, I will be investing in a small canvas of us two for one of the rooms!
What do you like to do on a Sunday evening? Feel free to comment & let me know!
I finally got myself another one of those bags from Boots, it’s a Celia Birtwell for Shapers lunch bag. It costs £1 and 41p of that goes to Macmillan Cancer Care.
I almost always venture into Boots for my lunch, and Macmillan Cancer Care (as mentioned in previous posts) is very special to me, so anything that helps them is fine by me!
How gorgeous is this little thing? And if you don’t want to put your lunch in it, its perfect for just putting in the little essentials such as purse, keys, makeup, phone etc, and using as an albeit slightly smaller day-to-day bag.
“Through their long-term partnership, Macmillan Cancer Support and Boots UK want to improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer.”

Also, Boots are also currently running their £5 No7 voucher deal if you spend over £5 in store. Its a great offer that runs sporadically throughout the year, and you’ll regret it if you don’t snap some vouchers up.
As the picture says, don’t forget to spend it! I constantly end up with at least two or three in my purse after the end date – I really must stop spending so much money in there!
This is quite a short post today, but I shall post later on – this afternoon, I’m going for a family meal, so expect a picture heavy post and a lot more rambling 🙂
