Giving myself time every week.

I have decided, and it won't be easy, to commit to giving myself at least one evening/day every week to do something for me. This boils down to me realising that if I really want to be able to reflect, move forward and make decisions I also need to dedicate some time to me every… Continue reading Giving myself time every week.

Week 15 @ Target: 2017 #goals

Hello, all. So as you may know I am not really at target, not properly, and I do think my target was hard for me to keep following my illness and recovery.

Week 49: Maintain

Definitely was disappointed not to lose this week, however, it was good not to have put on again. Really got to get back in the mindset of losing again. I am on holiday next week in the Lake District, and as it is a holiday I probably will not be amazing on the weight loss… Continue reading Week 49: Maintain
