Well those of you who know that I bottled out of the class last week, will breath a huge sigh of relief (and quite possibly think “it’s about time”) but I attended the Rosemary Conley class on Wednesday evening. I met two some lovely encouraging ladies, notably Sarah and Jane who were really encouraging and supportive – so brilliant to […]

Oh No! I bottled out of the class!

Oh No! I bottled out of the class!

Well i’m writing this with my head bowed down, as I actually didn’t manage to enrol with the Rosemary Conley class. For what reason I hear you ask… erm, well, I have put it down to simply bottling it!  but really it was because I was too nervous, and when I read the details again from the official website, I was completely […]

Yoga, Aerobics, Zumba or Circuits?

Yoga, Aerobics, Zumba or Circuits?

I thought that I would need to ramp up on the physical exercise as well as doing the dieting. So I popped down to my local leisure centre to find out what classes and events are going on which might be of interest. I have to say I was genuinely shocked at the amount of classes and groups that are […]

I have well and truly decided that this is definitely THE year that I shift those pounds, and finally get to be the woman from the special K advert in that lovely little red dress. I’m not quite sure what to do, whether to join a club, follow a regime, or simply stop eating! Jacqui and i have decided that in order […]

At the moment i’m in Europe for a work project, which i know sounds glamorous, but i can assure you that it’s really hard work, and glamour is the last thing on my mind. One of the big things on my mind has been food, especially when i got served the equivalent of soup of the day recently. It was […]

Hotel food... makes dieting REALLY tricky

Hotel food… makes dieting REALLY tricky

Comments Off

I’m currently away with work, and staying in a hotel. This is somewhat of a tragedy for the dieting.  I’m trying to get into the pool each morning (without looking like a fright) but the actual meals are the biggest problem. The breakfast is really a challenge as it’s a self service buffet, but as after 2 days of a […]

202 Calories per hour painting… Let’s decorate the house!

Wow, As the so called summer seems to have abruptly ended, it makes me think of autumn, cold evenings, snuggly jumpers and home made soup. It also makes me think of  decorating and getting ready for the “indoor seasons” So I have today started to paint one of the rooms. I have done about 2 hours painting, and I must admit it […]

Camping – It’s good for the diet!

As I prepared for the forthcoming camping trip I realised that I needed to take all of the stuff for camping, such as tent, tentpegs, sleeping bags etc, but I also needed to plan for the food that we were going to eat. Now this is a really simple principle, but when you are planning to make meals on a […]

Rain makes me hungry...

Rain makes me hungry…

Comments Off

Today it has been really showery, grey and pretty miserable. This type of “grey” weather makes me hanker after comfort, rich foods which are easy to make and very filling. It kind of makes me want to forget how lovely and tasty salads can be, and instead focus on shepherds pie, or Home made stew. This makes it really difficult […]
