I'm back With a New Goal (and 2 dress sizes to drop)

Monday, January 28, 2013

After almost 3 years MIA I'm back.
I've had a few changes since I was last here, some good and some bad.

I've lost my beautiful mom, It will be 2 years on February the 11th 2013.

I've gained a fiancee and now live with him in Birmingham, concrete city! A bit of a change from Cannock Chase - believe me!

I've gained 2 dress sizes and I don't even know how much weight!
I'm a UK size 16 and I've never been this big.

I'm hoping some of my Spark buddies are still out there to link up with?
I think I could use some support...and of course - I have buckets loads to give.

Hope to chat to catch up and hear about how amazing you are all doing!

    Im sorry to hear about your mom.
It can be tough feeling like you are starting over but just hang in there. Hard work and positive attitude will bring you success if you just keep it up.

    **I have just weighed myself and I'm 13 stone apparently! (182 pound)
Where did that come from?
Apparently I'm obese, I don' believe that for a second :(

p90x?....yes please!

Wednesday, September 01, 2010

Sooooo...I checked out p90x on Amazon today - 30 BARGAIN!!!!!
I'm ordering it tomorrow when my dolla goes in my bank
emoticon YEAH BABY!!

Thanks IWILLTRANSFORM & LEFTCIRCLES for the heads up and extra motivation - you guys rock! emoticon

I'm feeling more motivated and focused (well as focused as my brain can be) since being mia the past month (shame on me!)

I was dreading getting back to exercise, so far I've been going on my bike every other day, my times gone down by like 8'ish minutes since my first round which is all good. I've been doing some lifting and I upped my weight today (still a pussy but hey, we all have to start somewhere!)

I haven't binged in like a month (the worlds gone mad) emoticon

and I go to uni in 12 days emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Can't wait to join the gym and get back to some classes, fingers crossed they do Les Mills there - I miss Body Combat soooooo much!

Anyhoooo I love you guys, I swear you're all UBER mint!!!!

Keep up the great work

    Ok Funny story: I looked up the link, and noticed didn't get sound, so I turned up the sound on my computer which was muted. And I listened for a few seconds and I thought what the heck? It was so weird, and I thought oh my how will I ever comment on this weirdness. Then I noticed my son had left open a game on miniclip(an online free game site) That's what I was hearing! lol. So, when I turned that off I listen to the song and It was beautiful! Thanks for sharing and indirectly making me laugh today! emoticon emoticon

    Great blog Kez!
You are such a beautifully caring person.
I do however have issue with your last statement though!
"most of all I love how beautiful you all are!"
The problem is that everyone else may be described by the above statement, but me? Never me!
I'm just as large as life and twice as ugly! But I do know that my Mum loved me! emoticon

Week Off

Sunday, August 01, 2010

Right as most of you know I'm off to hospital throughout next week.
Nothing to worry about really.

I'm worried though as I can't go to the gym, I can't lift weights, I can't eat what I want - not good.

I will however be stocking up on fruit and salad bowls from the local ASDA so it's not all bad.

I'll be doing quite a bit of reading too. I'll finish my book that I'm reading at the minute and then start reading Skinny Bitch followed by The Spark emoticon (if I get the chance)

As MQBEAST pointed out to me today university is just round the corner - 6 weeks round the corner to be exact! EKKKKK

So I'm heading off, I would like to wish everyone a lovely, beautiful and fulfilled week!

The first week in August 2010 OMG emoticon

Love to you all!

  Sorry for bringing up the school thing, take it easy and don't take everything to heart when reading the skinny bitch book but she does have some good points. Is your male friend still around or do you need me there to fluff the pillows?
