It's crazy what a year can do to our lives. 1 year ago yesterday we moved from our top floor, damp flat.. We moved into a lovely flat with nicer neighbours and at the time, I couldn't have been happier!
If you didn't see my previous post which was posted on this day last month then you can check it out here.
Basically, I've lost even more since then. Which is great for me as I'd gained 2 stone when I stopped smoking. I feel absolutely fantastic lately, my skin is a lot healthier too and I feel a lot fitter. 6 weeks ago I could barely do 1 sit up, I do 75 a day now. Crazy how much our bodies find the strength and adjust accordingly.
I've been so busy trying to change my lifestyle I haven't had chance to update this blog as much as i'd have liked to. Now I'm in a pretty steady routine, getting more than 4 hours sleep a night (I know, how did I survive!), regular fitness and meal plans.
It's crazy how much you can change (mind, body and soul) in 6 weeks.
I'll update this blog with some meal plans and fitness info once I get chance to sit and draft something up.
It's a hard shout 'cause to me it's a pretty close call.
How can you tell the difference at the time? It's really hard to understand until afterwards. Is it naughtiness from the excruciating pain they're in when a tooth is cutting.. Or is it just about testing boundaries?
Kicking, smacking, headbutting... the list goes on.
Well, I actually lost 8lb but 7lb suited the title more!
I've always been one of those people to start a diet and then not pursue it to reach my end goal.
This has been the easiest diet by far. I've changed my eating habits and included some easy work outs.
1.5inch lost off my thighs, I've dropped a dress size and I've lost 8lb.. in a week!
Basically, I've eaten nothing but fruit and veg, stews, casseroles etc and snacked on celery and salad when peckish. I've halved the amount of sugar I used to have in hot drinks and switched from full fat to semi skimmed milk. My figure looks fantastic at the moment and I haven't even reached my end goal! I have seen so much more difference this time round than last.
This is the workout I've been doing everyday, give it a try and let me know what you think.
Some people say it's a habit, some say it's friendliness. Others say if you don't get a 'X' at the end of a message people may assume you're either angry and some even class it as a positive emotion indicator.
A kiss of kindness... apparently kiss politics are a serious issue. It's said that the first to send a message with kisses is the friendliest and how many depends on a) how much they like you and b) how friendly they are.
Some say people put kisses (xx) to show gratitude and thanks. Some have said that when they are angry or upset with someone they intentionally leave off the kisses a the end of their messages.
You wouldn't put kisses (xx) to an Ex partner though. That's strange and people can read sooooo far into those few kisses it can cause soooo many problems.
So, upon trawling through our local selling site on facebook a few days ago, this popped up. It was listed at £10 didn't say anything else just had a picture. I messaged the seller asked a few questions and found out he was only 2 minutes away from where I were at the time. I bought it there and then.... for £8 ! I know, I asked if he'd take any less... he agreed without hesitation, said it was collecting dust and that he'd never actually used it, he'd only taken it out of the box. I was amazed, it had no blemishes what so ever, came with it's own Samsung bag, all the leads, cables etc and even a 32gb memory card.
This is the Samsung Flashcam for all interested.
I did some research and a few year ago when they were released they were selling for £250! WOW!
I SWEAR Walkers crisps have changed the colour bags of two of their popular crisps?
A quote from the Walkers' website -
Question:Why did you change your packaging for Salt and Vinegar and Cheese and Onion so they're in the wrong colours?
Answer: Contrary to popular belief, Walkers Cheese and Onion have always been in blue packets, and Salt and Vinegar have always been in green packets. We don't have a plan to change this, as it's signature to our brand.
So why on earth are Walkers Squares crisps the opposite colours? Cheese and Onion are Green! Way to confuse us!
Not only did I feel the packet colour was worth blogging about.... but now I know why a packet out of a multi pack doesn't fill me up...
▼Question: Why are there less crisps in your multi pack bags?
Answer:The multi pack bags have always been smaller bags because they are often eaten as part of a meal or used in children's lunch boxes.
