#Fuff Weeks 8 & 9


Oooops, I’ve been a bit crap on the blogging front lately, sorry! But better late than never here’s my Fuff Week 8 questions..

What have you done this week to work towards your goals?
This week I’ve tried to get back on track (after my birthday) and tried to behave myself…however, I’m not sure what on earth possessed me but I went to a fireworks party on Friday night at our friends house and the host makes the most amazing rocky road. It was amazing…I know that becuase I managed to consume about 5 (small) pieces, it is to die for! I also managed to chuff 2 burgers in buns (this was even after my tea!) What a piglet! I’ve been back on track since then and have tried to exercise to combat it but who knows what will happen on the scales on Tuesday night.

What have you done to make yourself feel fabulous?
I have bought a dress on Ebay because I couldn’t find one anywhere else that I liked. The dress may be a little big but the next size down would of being too small! I think I’m in that inbetween stage at the moment. The dress is gorgeous and I love it so will post piccies when I’m all glammed up and look marvellous.

How important is a social life to you? Are you a loner or a butterfly or somewhere in between?
To be brutally honest, my social life is pants! I don’t have a massive group of friends but I do have friends from various circles: work, a couple of my old work friends who I keep in touch with, the fabulous girls from uni and college, a few life friends (who i’ve known since forever but we’re not that close anymore) and now the lovely peeps who I’ve met through WW. Saying that my social life is pants, I’d much prefer to have a few nights a month to catch up with friends in a pub chatting the night away rather than going out on the piss every week. I’m so over that. I do wish my friends would make more of an effort sometimes but then it’s two ways isnt it? Perhaps i’m the crap friend who needs to be in touch more and make more of an effort to meet up. I guess it all comes back down to my confidence. My confidence at the moment is quite good but I do get worried about what my friends think of me (my high school years still haunt me!)

How do you balance life outside your home with healthy living?
I’m quite good at staying on track with my healthy living at work. I take a packed lunch with me and various other bits so always have healthy snacks and squash at work to keep me on the straight and narrow. Otherwise I’m a good planner so would always plan what I’m eating if we were to eat out. I don’t like healthy eating get in the way of having a nice night, i’m more than happy with a chicken salad to stay on track.

What do you like to do for fun?
Ohh good question. What is fun? How do you define fun? I enjoy being crafty but I wouldnt say that is fun, it’s enjoyable but it doesn’t make me belly laugh. For fun, I spend time with my hubby perhaps going to the cinema or going out somewhere new. I do love spending time with my nearest and dearest.

Fuff Week 9 Questions..

What have you done this week towards your goals? As above
What have you done to make yourself feel fabulous?
As above

What is the most positive thing you’ve taken away from this challenge?
I think the most positive hting I’ve taken away from this challenge is being reminded to look back at what I have actually achieved. I’ve come a long way and sometimes get lost in the throws of day to day life. If I have a rubbish week on the scales (gain or stay the same) I need to remember that in the grand scheme of things, as long as I get back on track and make changes for a better week it won’t matter.

It’s your last week, the run to the finish, what is your priority?
To remain on track, have a good weightloss and get nearer to that 4.5 stone target!

Fun Stuff: Desert Island, you can take 1 person, 1 famous person and 3 items besides food and water. Who and what do you take?
One person: My hubby because I’d always feel safe (awww, what a softie!)
Famous person: Bear Grylls (he’ll be able to make us a hut and make sure we have food to eat!)
Three items: My quilt (it might get cold!), a shed load of curly wurly’s and soap

Bit of a selfish picture (dog lovers only) but it definitely suits me. Walking the woofer gives me time to chill out, put things into perspective and move forward with my life. Hope you’ve all had a good week, looking forward to reading your posts {sig}

    Fab Fuff post. It’s refreshing to be able to relate to so much of what you say. It’s nice to know that it’s normal to fall off the wagon food-wise, but to be able to keep your chin up & get on with life. You’ve achieved so much, you should be very proud. It’s great & very important to have a strong supportive network, friends and family can help no end. I find their praise & encouragement the best confidence boost, which helps spur me on & keep me on track. Xxx

    haha! I said Bear Grylls too! Great minds think a like. I’d just get him to do all the tough jobs and I can just relax.
