    #Fuff Week 7


    Weight Wars

    Blimey! We’re into week 7 already, before we know it, it’ll be Christmas!

    What have you done this week towards your goals?
    This week I was a bit naughty following weigh in. I was a bit downhearted with my pathetic 1/2lb loss so pigged out with a chip shop tea and although it was naughty, I really enjoyed it. I should really stop feeling guilty about eating post weigh in. Unfortunately, I managed to consume all my daily points and weekly points on Wednesday (McDs for breaky, 2 ring donuts & pizza hut deep pan pizza for dinner) so have spent the rest of the week trying to make up for it being extra good with exercise and sticking well within my daily points.

    What have you done to make you feel fabulous?

    I got my hair cut. I’ve had lots of lovely comments about it so that’s VERY positive.

    How do you pull yourself out of a slump or prevent yourself falling in to one?
    When I’m having a crap day instead of turning to food, I try to do something instead, perhaps take the dog for the walk or get my bum wiggling on the wii. I put into perspective everything that I have achieved and how far I want to go and by doing that I realise that I am in such a better place now than I think I have ever been and that’s definitely not worth slumping into a grump for!

    Are you naturally positive or do you have to work at it? How do you keep yourself positive?
    I try to be a positive person, life is far too short to dwell on mistakes or regrets. Don’t get me wrong I do get down sometimes but as I said before I try and put in perspective all the good stuff going on in my life. They [whoever they are!] say that there’s always someone else worse off than you and I did think they’re right! I am incredibly lucky to have a fantastic hubby, a lovely home, a very loyal (if noisy) woofer, a fab family and some brilliant friends. See, nothing to whinge about!

    I’m on Holiday right now, if you could go away anywhere tomorrow (and work wouldn’t get weird) where would you go?
    Ohhh, I’d jump on a jet plane with hubby (First Class obviously, if i’m not paying) and i’d go to Australia. I would absolutely love to go there one day. It’s thousands of miles away, absolutely huge and has masses to see and do. I’d love to go to America one day too and see the Grand Canyon, the desert, the mountains, the cities, everything!

    How true is that? {sig}
