Week Thirty Seven

Week thirty seven was another good one, here are the highlights:

Well this isn't a highlight but it's how my week starts, at my desk ready for work!
I had a really great swim on Monday night, I felt like I could have gone on and on :)
Tuesday saw me and Jo at Zumba and it was another great session, we have a lot of laughs in the class as well as a good workout!
Wednesday night we went for our walk to the outdoor gym, it will be the last time this year because the nights are drawing in and it will be too dark and creepy to go there :)
Our hard work was rewarded with a great sunset :)
 I lost 2lbs making a total of 4st 12lbs and I was Slimmer of the Week for the third week running!
I also won this great cookbook in the raffle :)
And really enjoyed my dirty pudding!
My brother Jamie called me Big Pants!!! I had to inform him that my sister Jemma now wore the biggest pants so she bet me that I couldn't fit in to her trousers. I did and left her to walk round the office in my big, baggy pair :)
I had a little win at bingo on Friday :)
I started Saturday with a nice walk around the park :)
Before going to my monthly crop :)
I picked up some real bargains in the charity shop :)
And enjoyed one of the birthday cupcakes that Gaye, one of the birthday girls, had made :)
Before having a Martini moment and pouring a bottle of red mist ink over my finished layout!  I'm just going to leave it and add the story to the journalling :)
On Saturday night I had not one but two wins at bingo!
Sunday was sunny so I went for another long walk, me and Sarah sent this photo as a good morning text to Paul :)
I managed to go out for a cycle on my bike, I did about 4 miles so I'm slowly building up to the London to Brighton :)
I tried a new Slimming World recipe, Caribbean Turkey and Vegetable Stew from the All In One cookbook, it was gorgeous and there was even a portion left over for the freezer :)
And then I spent the rest of the evening sorting through hundreds of photos.
And got this stack all in order and dated ready to go in my Project Life album :)
Now it's the start of a new week and a new chance to get even closer to my weight loss target!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by
Jo xx

what a busy but fabulous week! Good on you losing all that weight. Shame the days are starting to draw in. It must be a lot harder to keep up the momentum in the winter---- but I'm sure you will! LOVE that you're doing so many different sorts of exercise. As for your errr.... 'inked up' scrap pretty well with that photo!!! LOL....And all those photos WHAT A JOB!!! Well done getting that sorted:):)

You look amazing! All of your hard work is really paying off. You are an inspiration to me! Once I get the doctor's "go ahead" this week, I'm getting my fitness plan started! I look forward to your progress reports each week!

All of your hard work is paying off!!! Congratulations!

Also, I hope that you know that I read every sweet comment that you leave on my blog. I'd love to reply to each one directly but you have your settings such that you are a "no reply" blogger. That means that I get an email with your comment and when I hit reply to send you a direct email back, it won't allow it. However, I read them all and always smile at your kindness! :)

You look so efficient!

So literally the red mist came down? Gulp.

When I saw the big stack of photos on IG it really got my fingers itching..there's nothing like a pile of pictures like that to inspire some scrapbooking.

You are really whooshing ahead on lots of fronts - many congrats on your healthy lifestyle, and all kudos to you for your determination.

How does the layout look now that the ink has dried? I'm glad you've decided to leave it like that, but you were so calm about it. Loved sitting near you and catching up xxx
