back to work again tomorrow!

Monday, August 31, 2009


Time just seems to disappear so fast these days! We have had a lovely weekend. Matt and I stayed in a really nice hotel in Poole - the food was very nice and I am afraid I have probably put a few pounds on (I daren't look!) we also had a cream tea when visiting Swanage - even nicer!!
It was really nice down there - checked out the different areas we could be living in and where the schools are for the boys. It seems like it will be one long holiday living by the sea again!!
I have not done my exercises yet today and am not sure if I will - I am tired from a busy weekend. I have done loads of ironing this morning.

Someone is coming to see the house tomorrow to do the HIPs thingie then hopefully the house will go on the market by the end of the week.

Not looking forward to work this week as a lot of people are on annual leave so it will be even busier than usual!
Bye for now.

weekend away!

Thursday, August 27, 2009


well it has been another busy week at work - as soon as I arrive on Tuesday morning it is non stop until thursday afternoon! From next week I will be changing my hours so I will be doing tues and wed all day then half days on thurs and friday. The week after that I start a research job - just on a monday which I am looking forward to.

I have been preparing a cv this evening - as it is time to start looking for jobs in the Poole area. Our house should be going up for sale next week after a minor hiccup!

Matt and I are going to Poole for the weekend to have a look round. The boys will be staying at their grandparents!!!!

I have not managed to do much exercise at all this week. Still eating quite healthily (if you ignore the chips twice this week!) but not managed to log it this week.

Well heres to a lovely weekend by the sea!!!

    Have a good weekend house hunting. I do hope you find something soon.
Don't worry too much about logging things at the moment, you have quite enough on your plate!!! Just think how much healthier & fitter you are now compared to a few months ago.
Good luck with your CV

    Wow you are busy. I think we should be able to log calories burned for stress.

thats the end of another week!!

Friday, August 21, 2009


well we have been busy working on the house. Matt and my dad painted our hall,stairs and landing last weekend whilst I took the kids to visit my sister in N.Wales last weekend. Busy decluttering my bedroom today. I have managed to fit some exercise in as well! Matt has just taken another car load of stuff to the tip!!
They are coming on Monday to make an evaluation on our house - it is starting to feel more real!!

I'm stuck !

Saturday, August 08, 2009


I haven't done this blog for ages - there never seems time. Feeling a bit grotty this week with a cold. I haven't changed my ticker for over a month - the weight is not moving. I am sure I have been good - not really eating that much chocolate and I have increased the amount of exercise I am doing.
Yoga class once a week and ea sport active wii thingie now increased to3 times a week. This week I have moved on to the medium intensity workouts on the sport active.

I keep getting on the weigh scales hoping that there will be a loss of a pound or two but it is not moving - really I need to ignore the scales for a while.

There are going to be some big changes over the next few months. My husband has got a new job in Poole, Dorset which he will be starting at the end of September. We are working hard to do the house up to make it ready to put up for sale. I am also looking out for new jobs down south. Its a bit strange as we are going through the motions and I won't believe it is real until it happens.

Has anyone got any tips on moving that weigh scale again - maybe I am not completing my nutrition tracker properly.

Oh well today is my eldests 8th birthday and we are going to Twin lakes so there will be lots of walking to do! emoticon

    Ditto! Check your measurements - sometimes when the scales stop the inches do the moving!!

Just allow your body to adjust at its pace rather than yours!

Monitor your food tracker too - its an amazing tool x

Well done on your commitment, you are really doing so well Julia, its great watching your progress.

    Hello love, haven't we all been there & done that. As you say, ignore the scales for a while but instead use the tape measure. You will find that because you are exercising you sometimes put on weight to start with because you are building you muscles up, however as you have stayed the same you are obviously winning & will soon start to see a change. Stick with it mate......you'll get there. I promise.

its holiday time!

Saturday, July 11, 2009

Hi folks,

well we are just about packed and will be ready to set off at 8am tomorrow - we have a busy week ahead of us - two days at legoland, a day at chessington world of adventure then 5 days in Devon staying with my dad - where we will be visiting various theme parks!!
I think I will be doing plenty of walking and will try to be careful with my diet (I did say try!).

Hope everyone else is ok out there and you have a good week.
Bye for now.

    Have fun because that is most important. I found that exercise during vacation is much more fun than at home.

    I love to read blogs by other UK members. You must have a strong stomach to go to so many theme parks. It sounds like you will be too busy to overeat. Best wishes.
