weight loss

good news this week guys at slimming world.
I’m down a pound.
I didnt make the stone, but maybe next week?
If I can get two and a half pounds down by next week I’ll be down a stone.
but i am happy with this weeks results.
i think I didnt do too bad at all.
You cant lose big amounts of weight every week.


The best st. patricks day ever

My days been so relaxed. I even had an afternoon nap for about 3 hours.
It was bliss. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I did achieve a few goals too though like eating healthily, doing some self care activities, and reading.
I watched a little tv too with mom and dad, we watched this sorta weird wildlife show, and Irelands got talent.
Now its time again to catch up on blogs and email before I watch some more tv.
I just love relaxing days, don’t you?

Friendly fill ins

I decided to participate in the friendly fill in blog challenge this week so here goes.

1. When I am nervous, I…. shake uncontrollably, twirl my hair, get hot and flushed, and breathe rapidly.
2. When I am angry, I sometimes yell, or rage, or slam doors. Snap at people, am bitchy, take my moods out on others around me.
3. Today, I know for sure… that we wont be going to any parade, because moms not feeling well and neither am I.
4. For St. Patrick’s Day, I… Am feeling happy. Am listening to irish tv shows and playing irish music. Will drink a green mint shamrock shake, and enjoy watching the parade on tv.

Update on mom

so turns out mom is gonna be ok, thank goodness.
they ran tests in the ER, she had a chest x ray and some bloods taken to see if there was a clot in her lungs. there wasnt. and the doctor said the x ray showed no signs of infection in the lungs either.
he told her she shouldnt have tried to go out this afternoon to get groceries, that she should have stayed home and rested after seeing the gp.
anyway, he said he’d send her an apt to go to the COPD outreach clinic, that will take about a week to organise.
So in the meantime he told her to contine to religiously take her inhalers, and also she is to finish her course of steroids.
I’m so glad she’s ok. Thank you for all of the prayers and kind thoughts you sent earlier today. They were very appreciated.

not this week

I’m not going to the preschool for work experience this week.
I decided not to go in, because of this headcold. I know its getting better but I’m not fully better yet and I dont want to spread germs and pass whatever I have on to the kids.
Plus also, money is an issue this week. I usually have someone here at abode take me there, and then make my own way home. Unfortunately I dont have enough money to get a taxi home though so even if I had not have been sick, I’d still have had the money issue.
I’ll probably take a half day tomorrow and go home early. and then I have a week off, yay!
Mood wise I feel good right now. Everyones been congradulating me on my weight loss. Its making me feel so good about myself.

on the up

so things with this headcold are looking up finally.
I am feeling a lot better. I have a little bit of a cough. but nothing major. I think its just the mucus breaking up in my lungs.
My nose is still a little bit blocked. But overall I am feeling a lot better. I think it helped that I was able to rest for the afternoon yesterday, and then last night when I got home from slimming world I went straight to bed and straight to sleep. Its 4 AM now. Just woke about half an hour ago.
At least I can breathe again now! That really makes a huge difference.
Today I’m being interviewed for a radio programme. The main tutor on the ILS course is being interviewed also. She asked me if I’d do the interview with her. The show we are being interviewed for is a show for people with disabilities.
am kinda nervous but also very excited about it.

weight loss week four results

so i had a great result this week in slimming world!

i was down 3 and a half pounds! so thrilled! couldnt believe it when I stepped on the scales and was down by that much!

I also got slimmer of the week, for the second week running! And, wait for it, I also got slimmer of the month! So I now have two certificates to hang on my refridgerator!

Its such a great boost when you get slimmer of the week! Really lifts you up!

We had a food tasting ceremony tonight because there was awards for the biggest loser of the year going on. the food was delicious! meringues with coconut in them, pizzas, hummus and crackers, eggs with ham wrapped around them, and pavlovas! mmmm!

I’m now down 10 and a half pounds since I joined slimming world four weeks ago!

I cant quite believe it!

It has never been so easy to lose the weight either and I am not even hungry!

Long may this good streak continue!
