No I haven’t gone mad, I know its not Wednesday… My consultant is on leave for the festive period so she has kindly setup a drop in with another person today.

I got onto the scales this morning and I have broken into the next stone category, I am so chuffed with myself.  Christmas is always a difficult time of year but I have been focused and kept my goal in mind.  I will wait till this evening to see what the consultants scales say but I know its moving down.

Christmas Celebrations

I’ve met a few friends and had a party this month but I have managed to not take part in any food or drinking that I didn’t want to.   I’m not going to lie, I have longed for a Mince Pie or a M&S Christmas Sandwich but I have been very strong.  Its been months now, in fact I cant remember the last time I had a drink, I am really not bothered to be honest that hasn’t been a problem.  What I did long for was, a Costa Coffee Amaretto Latte…  I love my coffee and I love all things Amaretto so these were two combinations I could resist no longer..  My long suffering wife treated me to this amazing festive drink the other day, skinny version no cream though! 🙂


Sorry For Being Grumpy

I was speaking with my wife the other day and I realised that I have been coming across sometimes as Mr Grumpy.  I have got into the habit of talking about all the festive food and drink I am not having and almost openly tempting and then punishing myself.

I didn’t realise I was being this person and in fact my wife pointed out that I seem miserable, no fun!  In my little mind I think if I am being harder on myself I would do better over this Christmas period and not struggle with maintaining the weight loss momentum.

I realise this is not a healthy, sustainable way of being and actually is counter to what I want so as always I owe my better half an apology.  You are always looking out for me, and I trust your guidance and advice always, thank you x



So Badminton got cancelled last week but I have been getting down to the gym regularly.  I’ve blogged before about who are fantastic.  The gym will only be closed on Christmas day and Boxing day so full on Turkey burning mode can start at 8am on the 27th..

Have you ever tried using battle ropes in your exercise?  Talk about a burn!  doing 1 minute HIIT with these and you know about it!  I messaged a friend a few hours after I got home from the gym after using them, wow they are good!

I am going to be hitting the gym up over the Christmas break, there is no reason not to…

Will keep you all posted
