I have just spent 3 hours exploring every shop in the new shopping centre near home. Im going out tonight, so wanted to treat myself to something new. I must have gone in every blooming shop... New look, Monsoon, H & M, Peacocks, Debenhams.... you name it, I went there ! I must have picked up every dress, every top, every skirt.... gggrrrr and with everything I found a reason why it wouldn't look good on me. "It wont look nice because I dont like my arms" , or "it won't look nice because its too clingy" or "it wont look nice because its too coloured , too patterend , too black or too bloody short .....ggggrrrrrrrrrr !! And to top it all off , I keep finding myself thinking ...... "I can't wear that because I'm too bloody OLD " ...... gggrrrrr.... what is wrong with me :O( .

I feel like I'm learning all the time about my body's weird little tricks it plays. I'm not recommending to everyone to go out, eat fish and chips, get hammered, and then have chinese, not at all, but bloody hell it worked for me !! lol !! It just seems my body needs a real splurge sometimes, followed by being super good, it gets things moving..... well thats my theory anyway ! Same principle as the wendie plan I guess, although my super heavy day was super, super heavy day'ssssss !! lol .
Well what are you guys up to this weekend? I have another night out to look forward to with my friend Linda tomorrow night. We are hitting the pubs of Newmarket. Looking forward to that. Honestly since I had my whinge a couple of months ago about never going out, I have literally been out every weekend !! Don't think I have ever gone out as much as this, better make the most of it !! The only trouble I have is what to wear . I feel a shopping trip coming on :O)))) ...... Then on Sunday we have been invited to have dinner around the in-laws. Although its kind of them to ask, we don't really see eye to eye and to be honest, am not too keen on them at all, but I will try to make the best of it. Just take a deep breath and it will be over in a few hours.....
Have a great weekend guys.

I was having a play on the computer this morning and found this on google..... it certainly made me think. If you have fallen off the wagon lately, this may just help you realise why you shouldnt give up x
The weekend is over and you have fallen off the wagon. It's now time to get serious!
This weight loss riddle will get you back on track, back on the wagon ... presidential style!!!There's no need to give up!
You've decided to make scrambled eggs for breakfast. You take three eggs from the refrigerator. As you are oh so gracefully moving toward the counter, one falls from your hand and smashes on the floor.
What do you do?
1. Clean it up.
2. Make two scrambled eggs instead of three.
3. Get another egg from the fridge.
4. Throw the other two eggs on the floor and say 'screw it!'
Weight loss is a process. Falling off the wagon and finding yourself a bit bruised and bloated is par for the course. There's no need to throw your eggs on the floor and give up!
Those who reach their weight loss goals are simply the ones who get back on the wagon - again and again. (Personally, I've fallen so many times, it's become a part of my exercise program.) Those who succeed experience these setbacks as temporary lapses. They understand that there are no magic bullets, no quick fixes. The turtle wins this race.
Here are a few thoughts and tips to help you pick yourself up and climb back on the wagon!
How to Pull Yourself Up from the Boot Straps in four Easy Steps
1. Practice Loving-Kindness. Please stop being hard on yourself and saying mean things to yourself, too! (If someone else called you a fat pig, you'd punch them in the nose!)
2. Helping others stay on track is a way of keeping yourself on track.
3. Write Out Your List of Reasons: I want to lose weight because ____________. (fill in the blank and be honest) . "Be healthy. Look younger. Be socially acceptable. Make that rat who left me feel real bad."
4. The 80/20 Rule. No one is perfect 100% of the time. If you follow your weight loss plan 80% of the time, and treat yourself to an occasional treat 20% of the time, you should be able to achieve and maintain your weight loss goals.
I like this. I think this lady speaks a lot of sense . Hope it helps x

OMG, what am I doing ? I need to confess.... I am a PIG :O( !!!!!
I have had absolutely no self control whatsoever !!! What on earth is going on ?
I went out for lunch with my lovely friend Karon on Friday and ended up choosing cod, chips and peas at 15.5 pts ... eeeeekkkk. This was at 2 o clock. By evening, when it suddenly dawned on me that I hadn't fed hubby and the kids (completely forgot the poor things..lol), it was 8pm so they decided to go and get burger and chips....of course by then I was getting peckish so indulged in a handful of chips and bite of burger...all pointed but I ended up having 27 pts for the day instead of 19 .... disaster day number 1 . Over pts by 8 :(
Then Saturday arrives. We decide late in the day to go to see my uncle Frank and cousins as they were having a bit of a do in Northampton. Set off travelling at 7pm, got half an hour into our journey when we are diverted. Cannot get on the blooming A14 !!! Frigging road works. Diversions took us around in a circle , and an hour later we were no nearer. Sat Nav was not helping.... I swear if I heard her say RE-CALCULATING one more bloody time I would have thrown it out the blooming window !!!! It was pitch black, hubby was losing his temper and we ended up going back towards home, apologising to my family that we would not be able to come. We ended up going to our local for a drink to calm ourselves down. 7 vodka's and diet coke later, the landlady decides to order chinese to be delivered.....what did I hear myself say.... We will have some !!! What the hell ???!!!! Ended up having sweet and sour chicken balls and egg fried rice... 20 bloody pts !!!! Disaster day number 2 :( ...
Have now been eating flapjack and cookie that my daughters had attempted to make, I am now over my pts by bloody 30 ... and its still only 3pm and I haven't had my dinner yet :O((((
THIS IS HOW THE SLIPPERY SLOPE BEGINS.... AAARRRRGGGGHHHHHHH !!!
