Yups, only one dance, and I was terribly embarrassed but consider this is the FIRST TIME I have ever danced at a social function in my whole life I am kinda impressed with finding the confidence (or possibly the hyperness from sugar in chocolate gateaux).
Photo's added of being all pretty and dressed up

Last day of school today, attended Church for the leavers assembly, they had written some nice speeches. Our Headmistress was also retiring today and we had a lovely buffet lunch that I made ok choices at... didnt eat any pointless calories of bread at very least!
Been for a hours walk, and my foot is now screaming at me but I needed OUTSIDE.
Tomorrow is party at Cricket Club I got my pretty dress for. Again buffet food but I am confident of making good choices again, I like buffets as you can easily eat your choices without being noticed for eating 'weird' for not eating your own body weight in carbs!!
Also since I am driving I have an 'excuse' for not drinking, I do wish people would respect your choice to not drink more, today at lunch time there was wine... *shakes head* and had to refuse so many times.
Going to ask my Mum or brother to take a picture when I am all prettied up!

You know that hideous pain when you stand on a sharp rock into your heel when barefoot or in thin soles? Yeah, that, ALL THE TIME.
Its actually making me feel pretty down.
I ate some pita bread at work last night, and had a slice of toast this morning... what is WRONG with me??? Gross list of non-foods, grains and salt mashed together into a pretty flavourless mess... haven't eaten bread like that forever and I didn't really enjoy it.
I have got to not eat ice cream at work tonight, it made me really poorly last week and I need to find some damn self control.
I can't get out to exercise when even walking round work and home is painful enough, the thought of walking to exercise, let alone running... urgh. I have been doing some SP work outs, the short 10 mins ones, so I am not up on my feet long, but they are not enough and I don't really enjoy them either.
I'm fed up and unmotivated.
And I have a buffet lunch tomorrow... and buffet dinner Saturday... yeah... wish me luck with that.

I love looking round charity shops, books especially. Being able to buy clothes is NEW for me, being a "normal" size now means I can actually find things in them. I got a super cute designer top the other day for £1.99!
Today I got an adorable long top, and a darling hoody.
But what I was most excited about was finding a copy of House Of Leaves. I have wanted to read this for about 4 years, but it was always SO expensive, Waterstones only stocked hardcovers for about £20, Amazon even only had softcovers for £12.... and that's simply too much!
I always hoped to find a copy in a charity shop... and at LAST, there it was, for 99p
The other book isn't dated, but there are photographic plates that the women in look rather 1920's in dress and hair. Its about pregnancy, birth and childcare. And includes such gems as:
"the mother must never expect to be sick, and never be sorry for herself if she is! She should scold herself and put it out of her mind"

Sooo, I now have my mitts on a rowing machine, nothing fancy, but something I can do with no impact to my heels.
I had already swum today (a mile in 62mins) so this wasn't a work out really, just curious!
5 mins and my upper arms are aching! Not quite got the rhythm yet, but sure I will, but going to have to work for FAR longer to meet my calorie burn goals as 5 mins was only 37 calories apparently...
