Well it’s been a quiet week on the blog hasn’t it? In fact there’s only been one other post since my last weekly update, oops. Usually I like to get all my posts written and scheduled at the weekend as during the week life can get pretty busy with work, but last weekend I had a pretty busy weekend, and when I had free time I just played The Sims so I didn’t really get much blogging done. I kept meaning to get a few posts written, but I had a very busy week and actually made it to the gym a few times, who am I?
This week I’ve decided to focus a lot more on my health, and eating a lot better. I’ve mentioned on the blog a few times now that I’ve been doing Slimming World, and it’s been working a little slow for me. In all honesty it’s not the plans fault, but mine because I tend to spend all my syns on chocolate and other unhealthy rubbish, and realistically who’s going to lose weight when you’re eating rubbish? So as well as following the SW plan, I’ve been making sure I eat a lot healthier, and using my syns in a more healthy way. I even experimented with giving up chocolate this week as a bet with some of my work friends, and made it a whole 4 days before I failed miserably.
As well as eating well I’ve managed to do exercise three times this week. It might not sound like a lot, but I literally avoid exercise as much as I can, despite having a personal trainer and a gym membership. I had a personal training session this week which was quite frankly, hell. My PT found out that I somehow managed to eat a whole easter egg on Monday, and he punished me pretty badly for it, and I died a little. It was tough, but definitely made me think a little more about what I ate for the rest of the week. I’ve also started going to a local clubbercise class, which involves glow sticks and disco lights and prancing around to club music for an hour, it’s pretty hilarious. So with all this healthy eating and being active lark, I’m really hoping for a good weightloss at Slimming World tomorrow!
This weekend has been relatively quiet, I had two of my friends over yesterday for a craft day and we spent the day eating cake, of the healthy banana bread variety (recipe should be up on the blog later this week!), and then I just spent my Saturday night watching American Horror Story and drinking wine with the other half. Today is a little more busy, and I’m heading over to Cambridge to catch up with two of my blogging friends Laura and Pippa as well as meeting a few new lovely ladies.
A few months ago way back in July during the middle of a heatwave, my friend Gemma invited me out for afternoon tea at Moggerhanger Park. She wrote this amazing blog post on the experience, and because I’m a terrible person who can’t write about things after they’ve recently happened, I’m writing about the whole experience now, in October….
For years I’ve loved baking, but I’m not always very good at it. Sometimes I can make amazing bakes, other times I can make more ‘meh’ kind of cakes. My skills really aren’t that great, and although I won’t be making star baker on GBBO anytime soon, my baking skills are slowly starting to improve….
A few months ago I discovered Inamo in Soho and discovered how amazing their food was. I didn’t know at the time, but there are two Inamo restaurants, with another one around the corner from Piccadilly Circus. After the amazing experience Chris and I had we knew we had to go back, so when we got invited to try out the new menu…
A while ago I was contacted by the folks at Eat Your Photo to see if I’d be interested in reviewing some of their cakes. You don’t have to ask me twice if I want to review cake. Free cake?! Yes please. However this isn’t just any normal cake.. oh no. It’s a cake that you…
A while ago I blogged about how I wanted to give up sugar with the help of Healthy Sugar Habits 6 week detox programme. My detox programme ended on the 2nd March so I thought it was time to update on how I got on. I mentioned in my first post that I’m a complete and utter sugar addict….
December is one of my favourite months because of Christmas, and it’s also the month where it’s completely acceptable to eat a small piece of chocolate everyday for my breakfast, hurrah! Most years I can rely on my mum to get me your typical rubbish chocolate advent calendar, or the occasional Hello Kitty one, but this year she…
