I'VE LOST 6 POUNDS!
So last time I weighed myself at the gym was Monday, when I weighed 152 pounds. When I weighed myself there again today, it said 146!!!!! I can't believe it! So glad I joined the gym.... Read more
So I'm continuing to use my gym membership, mainly because it costs so much a month, and went for a half hour swim today. And, I managed to keep up in the fast lane! I'm proud of myself ... Read more
So I just updated my measurements/weight tracker, and I have lost 2 inches off my hips, 0.5 off my waist, and nearly 3 off each thigh! I don't know about you, but I think that's pretty darn good, and I'm proud of myself ... Read more
I joined the gym!
I've been wanting to join the gym near me for a while, and Thursday last week I plucked up the courage (and the money) and signed up! I've just had my second session and I'm feeling great about it.... Read more
Back in the summer my mum had to have a blood transfusion, or she would have died. So, I wanted to give blood so that other people could have their lives saved. However, when I tried to give before I wasn't allowed to because I'd been to Gambia ... Read more
When D left for university in September, I admit it, I faltered and gave up. For the last few months, I've been stuffing comfort food down in a vain attempt not to miss him. Of course, it doesn't work. And him telling me he'll love me whatever s... Read more
High on motivation again!
So today D and I had a day out in our nearest city. We had a great day; had a lovely lunch, went to the cinema, and went shopping. On the way back to the train station, we popped into one last shop where I tried on a skimpy little outfit hoping ... Read more

So some of you may have noticed that I've not been on Sparkpeople much this week. That's because I was selected to attend a summer school at Cambridge University, that's right, the uni rated top in the whole world!!!
I had such a GREAT tim... Read more
It's all going wrong...
1. I can't do my 5k because I can't get the time off work.
2. I lost out on Head Girl to the Governor's daughter; obviously connections are more important than being the right candidate.
3. I feel so sick about everything that I can't eat, ... Read more
Crazy times ahead!
So this week I was voted through to the next round for Head Girl - I'm so happy! The next stage is to do a presentation and have an interview with the Senior Team, which is quite nerve-wracking. I've just finished my presentation, but I'm coming... Read more
A new trophy!
So I'm onto level 6 now which is quite exciting! I love the way SparkPoints rewards you for the small things, and makes your feel good even if you haven't reached a major goal. I've also booked in for my first 5k, so I'm pretty excited about tha... Read more
My first month!
I can't quite believe that it's been a whole month since I joined SparkPeople. There have been many times where I have tried, and failed, to do this before. Usually, my enthusiasm ran out as I wasn't committed enough - in particular, I never too... Read more
