Week Forty Three

Week forty three was very chilled out, here are the highlights.

A great swim after work on Monday cleared my cluster headache :)
Instead of my usual walk around the park in my lunch break I went to the gym.
I had a great session of Zumba in the evening too, Maddie doesn't look as glowing as me in this photo because she's lazy :)
I had to drop the Smart car off early for its service.
I had a great 4.5 mile walk after work, it's a shame it's dark so early now though :(
Another lunch time session in the gym.
I lost a pound this week and that was enough to get me this shiny sticker and certificate :)
I took the trousers I wore at my very first Slimming World meeting to show the rest of the group!
Alice wanted to show me her new Barney, we all love Barney in this family :)
I really enjoyed my dirty pudding :)
While Alfie enjoyed watching For the Love of Dogs :)
And then he just wanted lots of cuddles :)
I went for a lovely long walk over the golf course on Saturday morning.
And then played with Alfie in the garden.
Until it was time for bingo with the girls where I had a little win :)
I was back over a very misty golf course on Sunday morning
But the sun soon shone through :)
I then spent the afternoon working on secret Christmas stuff :)

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by

Week Forty Two

Week forty two got off to a great start, here are the highlights:

After my epic walk on Sunday I had Monday off work and enjoyed a Harvester breakfast (yes I did count the SYNs)
After breakfast I had a lovely 60 length swim :)
In the evening I went to bingo and had a little win :)
Tuesday was gym induction day and it wasn't until we'd got changed that me and my sister Jemma realised we'd both picked the same top to wear :)
In the evening I had a great time at Zumba :)
I wore my new dress to work and really matched the colours of the seasons :)
I had a great 3 miles walk on Wednesday evening, I do worry about bumping in to clowns on my route though!
Thursday was our Christmas party at Slimming World :)
And I was so pleased to lose 2lbs but so disappointed that I missed out on getting my 5 and a half stone award by HALF A POUND!
I saw this little pickle and she showed me the instrument she made at school :)
I really enjoyed dirty pudding :)
I went down to Paul's for the weekend:
And the weather was amazing! I couldn't believe it was the middle of October and I was still walking about in a t shirt!
I started a new crochet project that I absolutely love :)
And before I knew it I was back home with my girl....
And of course my lovely boy :)
This week didn't get off to a great start because I had a cluster headache :( That means the week can only get better.....hopefully!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week

Week Forty One

Week forty one was a good one, here are the highlights:

The weather has been amazing so it's been lovely walking round the park in my lunch break :)
I did a 51 length swim after work and came out just as the sun had almost disappeared.
I saw this little pickle before work :)
My sister Jess went to get pic 'n' mix for the office and as she came back in the door I just knew she'd got me my favourite! She didn't want me to be left out but she didn't want to spoil my diet so she got me one piece of fudge and not only did I savour it I really appreciated what she'd done :)
I had a really great but hard session of Zumba :)
I managed to sneak in the last cut of grass for the year :)
While this cutie played with his ball :)
And then I went for a 4 mile walk!
I had a large delivery of wool, I still haven't had time to open the box yet!
Another weight loss, another step closer to my target :)
Dirty pudding was lush :)
I got in to work really early on Friday so had a little treat :)
Then I joined the gym, due to a computer problem their end it actually took me 9 hours to join!
Saturday was crop day where I managed to get 2 layouts done :)
Then I went to bingo with the girls, no winnings though :(
On Sunday I was up bright and early and on a train with Sarah for the Diabetes UK London Bridge Walk.
The Chelsea mascot saw us off on our epic journey :)
After 9 and a half miles and 12 bridges here I am just about to cross the final bridge!
To collect my medal :)
Maddie modelled the hat I was given :)
And then I had a very long soak in a lovely bubble bath :)
Before snuggling on the sofa with this nutty boy!
And finally getting the foundation row on my ripple blanket right!
This week has already had a great start because I've had the day off work!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by
