My diets going nowhere fast !!!!

This loosing weight business is so hard this time round. I lost 3.5 stone last year but I let myslf slip after my holiday. I have since put back on nearly 2 stone and I feel so bad. I felt great last year, my slin was better, not so many aches and pains, no indigestion etc. I now feel like crap. I had every intention of getting back to it after Christmas but its just so hard. Im eating biscuits and sweets all the time. Last night after tea I went to Tesco and bought chocolate covered flap jacks and chocolate hob nobs. Why? This morning Ive had my breakfast and then made a cup of tea and dunked 6 of the chocolate hob nobs in it. OMG what is wrong with me.

Enough is enough now... I don't want to put all the weight back on. Imagine how I would feel then...

So new start tomorrow morning. I have got the summer to look forward to and I want to be able to wear the beautiful skirts I bought last year. I have my gym membership until June so Im starting some classes on Saturday.

I have had to write this down as I just feel so awful I need a kick up the bum to get going.

So hear goes. I think I will write on here how much Ive lost each month so watch this space....

All a blur..

Do you ever feel like time goes so fast that it leaves you in a blur. January has been like that. I don't know why but I don't really know what I acomplished last month. It was Phils B-day last week so we all went out for tea. We don't go out all together for a meal that often as its so expensive so it made a lovely change.

We have started having movie nights on a Saturday every week. We get lots of snacky things from the supermarket, buy a cheap dvd and after K is in bed the 4 of us watch it. We watched 2012 last week and this week we bought the Bourne series and watched the first one of those. Its alot cheaper than going out and we enjoy it.

I had lots of bargains in the sales in January. I left it until the final days of the sales and picked up some fab deals. In tesco I got 2 single quilt covers for the boy for £5, pack of pencils for 20p, notebooks for 20p and lots of bits. In boots they had a 75% off sale where they were clearing all of their sale stock. I got a beautiful case full of makeup for £11 instead of £45 and a purse for £2. I didn't really need the stuff but it has come in handy.

My top buy this month though has been a tastecard. It is a card that gives you discounts at thousands of retaurants in the UK. They normally sell for £69 but you could get a free trial for 3 mths. The discount is either 50% off or 2 for the price of 1 so you save alot. If you eat out alot it will save you alot of money.

I have a the Hugglets Winter Bearfest coming up on the 27th February and I have been so busy designing new bears for this show. I have to get cracking now as its not long.

Heres a photo of 2 bears I made a few years ago that came runner up in the British Bear Artist Awards.
