Oh dear. I promise next week there is an upbeat motivational post coming about setting goals and NAILING THEM. Which I fully intend to do btw. The phone addiction thing is coming along ok. My fingers didn’t tremble too much when my battery cut out earlier. I managed to watch a whole film with my husband this week without checking my phone.
What are your goals for 2017? I have a few and I set to work on one of them today, as best as I could with two kiddie winkles.
Turns out over Chrismas I put on a bit weight (cough a lot), just loving life. No regrets – it was awesome. If you did the same promise me one thing? You won’t beat yourself up about it. Remember the great times and bash on.
High ho, it’s off to work we go. So yes, today I dragged my poor kids along to Slimming World. My little girl asked where we were going – hopeful it was soft play. My response:
We are off to a place that helps grown ups who have had far too much Christmas cake and can’t fit into their clothes. Nothing for you to worry about though. I am sure there will be some nice kids for you and Char to play with.
The place was packed – ovbs. I mean come on here it is the first week in January. What did I expect? I knew exactly what I was getting myself in for. The meeting went on for 2 hours. I was the only one with kids. Go figure. I even got desperate and purchased healthy ‘fibre rich’ chocolate bars in attempt to keep the kids still. That will be an interesting nappy!
We made it home alive and I managed to avoid the wine and chocolate cupboard.
It has been a VERY long day. I muttered under my breath “I need a nanny” about 50 times this morning. I hate myself for it because I love my kids more than anyone. Which makes it worse. It’s all going to be ok though as (quality not quantity) ‘perfect’ Mum was around for a good 20 minutes. I pushed the kids on the swings at the park – whilst acting like a scary monster. I was sheer banter. They were LOVING it. I didn’t care who was watching.
Slimming world – I am ready for you. A few have already said there is no way I will stick to it which is the best incentive to put the two fingers up in a few months time as I strut my new boootay. Surely sticking to slimming world will be easier than running a marathon? Either way I am as determined as ever which means I will smash it. Even if I am a grumpy mare for the first few weeks as I experience withdrawals from brandy cream and christmas cake, shed loads of wine and champers, chocolate orange, cheeseboards, pate, baileys. I am drooling. You get the picture.
As for running, it is also high on the agenda. I have booked myself up for some super running events this year and I want to get faster. Which means less weight to run with. I am not looking at it as ‘weight I have to lose’. It’s weight I get to lose. I get to look after my body this year. I get to look forward to buying some lovely new clothes. I get to try out a new exciting eating plan and some fabulous new recipes. Bring it on. I shall be sharing any recipes on my foodie page so get involved. I will most definitely be saving up points for fizz over the weekend. Wish me luck and good luck with all your goals. If you are happy with things the way they are then high five to that too.
