Reasons to be cheerful…week 43

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

After a totally grumpy weekend I thought it was about time to join in with #R2BC.

Here are my 5 reasons to be cheerful this week..

1) It’s half term and hubby is off. I love it when he’s off work as he gets to chill out a bit and he gets to stay at home with Mikey who loves our company.

2) I’m wearing a brand new pair of jeans that are 4 sizes smaller than I wore back in January 2011

3) I had my hair cut shorter and coloured…I love it! I took advantage of a deal at the hairdressers so saved over £30 on the usual price!

4) I have a wonderful network of family and friends who have been very supportive of my weightloss and I am so appreciative of all of their support & motivation

5) I have lots of plans coming up over the next few weeks with various family and friends so looking forward to spending time with them all

What are your reasons to be cheerful this week? Why not pop over to Mich’s blog  and spread some cheer! {sig}
