Hurrah! It's Saturday!

Saturday, May 04, 2013

So only my morning class and then the weekend starts he and even better - it's a Bank Holiday! And the weather is supposed to be good!

Good news from yesterday - the BNP were defeat in ward once again. They were also beaten in the surrounding wards although they did get an relatively good num of votes in one ward beating the Lib Dems.

The county has swung. The other county in which I work has also swung. It will be interesting to see how both pan out.

Good with food yesterday. I am aiming for as near to 1200 as I can get for week days with. 2000 on a Saturday and 1500 on a Sunday. My Saturdays can get a little out of hand tho. And we know why that is.. Still 28 days to weigh in.

And another good thing yesterday. I bought a hardly worn pair of Principle jeans from a charity shop for 1.49 in a size 14 and they fit me. Now it could be argued that it isn't a good thing because it means I have gone up a size as all my jeans in the cupboard are size 12. However to keep things in perspective it was not that long ago I was a size 20 in jeans so a 14 tells me I have work to do but not as much work as I have done before.

When I was a size 20 I dreamed of getting into a size 14 - that was my goal - so it maybe a size bigger buts its still not to be sniffed at.

And they were a bargain!

    I'd be over the moon if I ever got down to a size 14.

    Size 14 isn't too bad really.

Great you are being positive.

The emoticon is making me happy too.

    That's a really good way to look at it.

I had to get a size 16 for dad's funeral from New Look, although a different pair of trousers I fit into a size 14, so you never know. I DO know that all of my size 12 trousers are pretty snug to say the least.

    That's a good positive outlook! Good for you. As for the jeans, if your other pants still fit, perhaps these jeans just run smaller or they were shrunk? It's always a possibility. The difference between 12 and 14 isn't insurmountable! :)
