What is going on at the elf factory these days? They must be under a lot of pressure by their stakeholders (santa) to increase profits and as a result produce pretty pathetic toys with a shelf life of less than a week. I made my first pilgrimage to the North Pole (Hamleys), hoping to get  Continue Reading »

Written on January 17, 2013 at 12:58 am, by

Well I made it! The old me… Here are my stats..I lost 8pounds or 3.6kg. I think I did not loose as much as last time as I didn’t exercise enough… I have quite a sedentary job now too. I think the Pilates helped with toning however. I realise that not only was I looking  Continue Reading »

Sunday, 13th Jan 2013 – Day 8 – The Detox Almost there! I’ve realised how much I snack, or treat myself. I’m aware that I spend a lot of money on these treats, coffee’s and too often ready meals. So I’m spending money on getting fat. This week I’ve saved £pounds and lost the right sort  Continue Reading »

Friday, 11th Jan 2013 – Day 6 – The Detox A warm shake to start the day, just what I needed after four hours sleep. My husband had a boys night out and came home smelling of curry and complaining that his meal wasn’t great… oh my heart bleeds. Why do they want to regale all  Continue Reading »

Wednesday, 9th Jan 2013 – Day 4 – The Detox I’ve passed the first hurdle and I feel I’ve settled into a reasonably ‘normal’ way of eating. I feel that this could be manageable for every day life. I’ve also noticed how often I snack, pick and have a small treat… and it’s alarming. No wonder  Continue Reading »
