June Favourites

It’s that time again where I wrack my brains to see what I can include in my monthly favourites.

So here we go.

I’ll start with what happened right at the start of the month… I had my hair cut off and I bloody love it

SO…? STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM BODY MIST

I saw this in Boots while browsing at the make up it was situated at the end of the aisle. Smells like a dream and good enough to eat. Nice to put on when you don’t want to put your expensive perfume on.

MILEY CYRUS

Always loved Miley Cyrus even in way back in her Hannah Montana days.

She is coming is her new album. At the there is only 6 on there o Spotify let’s hope she adds some more.

MY LEOPARD PRINT SANDALS

These were accidentally stumbled upon whilst browsing some summer clothes on ASOS. Aren’t they just lovely, they are a little heavy but they are so comfy. Simple but stylish.

REVLON CUSHION LIP TINT

My lips adore this lip tint from Revlon. It goes on more like a matte lipstick and stays on at least 8 hours which I think is fab for a lip tint. Love it so much I’ve purchased another one just incase they sell out πŸ™ˆ

HUMMOUS

For a while after surgery I lost my appetite a bit. The one thing that got me eating again was hummous. I usually dip cucumber and carrots in. If there’s none of them it’s a packet of crisps. Luckily they also do a 30% less fat so I don’t feel too guilty whilst eating it.

INSHOT

If you are looking for an app that you can edit, make collages on, edit videos and add a bit of music then inshot is it. Of course with most apps there are in app purchases but to be honest you can do so much on here without having to buy anything. Go download it and have a play around.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

Just love meaningful quotes and this one is perfect.

Here’s to July

Weigh hey

I’ve been using the weight watchers app a few weeks…there was a three month offer and i thought it would give me a boost to lose some before going for surgery.

I am not overweight (maybe for my height) but i look in proportion. Curvaceous woman and all that πŸ˜‚

So heres a close up of the app

I’m actually finding that i stick to my daily allowance which is 23. This allows me to have one treat a day eg a packet of hula hoops/time out and the rest of the day being healthy.

I’ve lost 4 pounds up to now which I’m proud of as needing a wheelchair i don’t get the exercise able bodied people would.

Tonight is treat night and heres what I’m having

I think there’s no point in depriving yourself of something you love.

I have cut out cheese though, i was totally addicted…like i could have it breakfast dinner and tea kind of addicted. Truth be told i don’t miss it at all.

So if you are on a weight loss journey. Any loss is a loss even if it’s a quarter of a pound.

One thing to remember…do it for you. Nobody else.

Diet starts Monday

Why always Monday you ask?

Well i guess it’s a new week and you want to start a fresh.

When actually, you can start it any day you wish.

But heres me again saying it to you on a Sunday night (face in hands)

This totally represents me – getting on the scales and thinking noooo way that can’t be right and get on a second time just to make sure.

I really have a sweet tooth. If i had to write a list out i bet you most would be sugary foods.

I attempted to diet/healthy eat here

I HAVE A BIG BUTT AND I CAN NOT LIE

I failed miserably as i wasn’t fully focused and something upsets the apple cart and i turn to my beloved comfort food.

You know what i did it before and lost 6 stone back in 2008 so I’m pretty sure i can do it again.

Obviously i don’t want to lose that amount. A stone would be amazing.

Maybe I’ll do a series on my diet/healthy eating. I shall get my thinking cap on.

Just because Christmas is just around the corner its no excuse for me not to start.

Monday I’m coming for ya.

I have a big butt and I can not lie

I am starting to feel less confident with my body and i think it’s because as i sit down in my wheelchair everything gets squashed by gravity pulling it down. I have always been on a rollercoaster ride with my weight, you can read it here:

food and me – my story

However i have spotted that i am forever grabbing the sugary options and need to really think of the goodness my body needs. I do love healthy food it’s just i am easily led when it comes to a treat.

There’s 10 inches between my waist and my bum. My waist is 30 and my bum is 40. There’s nothing wrong with being an hourglass shape. I just think i owe it to myself to think about how I’m feeding it junk.

I have downloaded this app known to so many of you…

It says i am allowed 1240 calories a day. Which i think is plenty. I just need to even out what i am eating and make sure i am allowing a couple treats but healthier ones otherwise I’d fall off the wagon.

Exercise is hard for me because of my health problems and mobility so going on a diet it is.

I think I’ll start tomorrow as its the beginning of the week and whenever you are on a diet these are the famous words

I will keep you up to date, probably monthly as you may get fed up of me withering on about it.

Let me know your thoughts below.

One pound at a time – weight journey so far

I’ve struggled over the last 2 years since I had my big operation with my weight. As I was not very mobile I just used to comfort eat to make myself feel better when in fact it was making me sad. My weakness is chocolate…still partial to a Diam or a Crunchie if I go past one in the supermarket πŸ˜‹
so I have been on a weight loss journey since October and with Christmas most of the 6 pounds I lost went back on. So new year came and I thought let’s get my head in the game and don’t cave in. I’m 11 pounds down and now back in my size 10s I am so proud of myself that I’ve stuck to it.

Here are a few meals I managed to snap. I really do like eating my vegetables every day the fruit is growing on me…not literally. I’ll keep you updated how I’m getting on in a month or so 😁
