My Life Goal, ze Weight

Next…there isn’t a set of scales in the hotel room so I can’t check my weight which I think is a HUGE blessing!

Shake Your Booty

I managed a few strolls on the treadmill earlier on this week which was all good…I feel so much better for doing a spot of exercise after a day at work.  And since we are walking almost everywhere in Moscow this weekend, we’ve done quite a few steps…G hates walking so you can imagine how pleasant he is today on our second full day in Moscow..with a dodgy knee on the mean streets of Moscow (my legs are killing me so I can only guess how G’s knee currently feels!).

What I’m Up Too..

Yes so we arrived into Moscow on Friday afternoon and oh my goodness, the traffic…it only took us 2.5 hours to get from the airport to the hotel!  Needless to say, the crankiest person in Moscow was me on Friday afternoon and then the Intercontinental decided to remove my Club Lounge access that I’d paid for which offers breakfast, dinner and light snacks and gave us a suite instead with no Lounge access without asking what I would prefer…I tossed my cookies big time…mainly as I was going to rely heavily on the hotel for gluten free food…in the end they gave us lounge access and the suite…G had to sort it as I had to stand outside to cool down as I was having a hot flush and a panic attack over food (don’t laugh as finding gluten free food in Moscow isn’t easy and with the language barrier it just adds a new dimension to finding food).

Other than that (I’ve built a big bridge and moved on!), I’m absolutely loving Moscow…can’t get over how amazing the city is and I suppose I can see why it’s a marmite destination as it can be a culture shock to some people (my first time in Russia in 2003 most certainly was) however the changes are startling from my last visit to this one and I’m so glad that I’ve ticked off Red Square!  I’m plotting my next Russian adventure for some point in the future.

Last night, G decided he wanted to go shooting…honestly it was like we were starring in a dodgy horror movie as we got dropped off at derelict building, then had to go underground…then a few guys turned up with a large gun looking like they were from the mafia…G and I are still laughing about it all now.

You can see more of my photos on my instagram page.

Anyway enough of my babbling…time for some sleep.

My Life Goal, ze Weight

A teeny weeny weight loss…I’m pretty sure next week it will be an entirely different story…has anyone else over eaten…G and I have eaten enough food for a family of 10 this past week…looking forward to getting back on track from tomorrow.

Shake Your Booty

I had a little procedure at the hospital on Tuesday and unfortunately it left me unable to do exercise but I’ve managed to go for a stroll on my treadmill today…yay!

What I’m Up Too..

G and I haven’t done much this Easter holiday…possibly a waste of 4 days however we have sorted a number of things out in our home and my decluttering continues…seriously where does all this crap come from…it feels like a never-ending battle…how do these minimalist bloggers with a cactus do it…I’m assuming they prick themselves with said cactus whenever they want to buy something?!??

G changed my wardrobe around which means I have huge visibly of all my clothes and let’s just say there will be another HUGE eBay clear out when I get back from Moscow…is it weird that I am looking forward to this.  I’ve become obsessed with reading wardrobe and declutter make over books at the moment…my whole mindset towards shopping has really changed this year!  I highly recommend The Curated Closet if you’re looking for a way to change your clothing shopping habits.

Last week I found out I will be definitely having a second operation, most likely in June but possibly sooner if she can get me in…Frida the Fibroid which was partly removed in the first operation has moved into my uterus cavity (I thought this was a good thing, apparently it’s not however it makes easier to remove it) and this is causing all my stomach cramping and why I had to have a day off last week after having an internal ultrasound…I find internal ultrasounds a complete walk in the park along with smears, I don’t fear them at all but holy sh*t…two days of cramping and bleeding with bed rest and I’m still not feeling 100% now. Easter has allowed me to rest a bit which is always a good thing especially as we’re off to Moscow on Friday…a well deserved holiday for G and I.

I’ve booked a few things this weekend for Moscow…nothing like leaving things to the last minute again.

I had a giggle over the Easter weekend as there was a photo of my mummy molesting the Easter Bunny that popped over for Afternoon Tea…some things never change!

I hope everyone has had a really lovely Easter break.

Anyway enough of my babbling…time for some bedtime reading.

My Life Goal, ze Weight

Yay another very small weight loss…small but when you add them all up, it’s so good to see an overall weight loss since my operation.

Shake Your Booty

Just a few strolls on the treadmill and a whole lot of gardening today.

What I’m Up Too..

So I decided to spend the weekend at home, getting things sorted so I’ve got Easter weekend free to do day trips if I fancy…today was spent in the garden and I’m currently writing this blog post with a bag of frozen butternut squash on my neck as I’m pretty much red as a lobster…bloody English weather and my pale Kiwi skin!  I’m a huge advocate for sun cream so I feel rather stupid for not applying it today (I applied it after the damage was done!)…let’s hope the Rose Oil that G has applied works!

After feeling tired for weeks and weeks…the iron tablets aren’t helping and I just had another blood test to check my levels; I decided to buy a number of vitamins online today so fingers crossed that they’ll act like rocket fuel so I’ll be skipping through the tulips come Easter time.

Just finished making Christine’s never fail sponge…I’ve made it gluten free so I am guessing it may fail…eek!

Blog Stuff

I read a really interesting blog post this week which is now deleted about “instagram influencers”…it was so good…the blogger actually named and shamed luxury travel bloggers!  Unfortunately a few people have taken offence to the blog post and spammed her instagram account with fake followers which I just think proves how fickle society is these days.

I wrote a blog post a number of months ago about why people follow and unfollow on instagram (you can read it here)...I realised that I had a few days left on my instagress account so have got it running down to nil just liking random photos (the accountant in me hates wasting money and I’m not following / unfollowing)…I’m undecided about instagram at the moment.  I’m actually thinking about closing down my instagram account or making it private as I’m finding it all a tad pretentious…I love accounts that act like mini little blogs where the person shares the good times and the bad times…but these seem to be disappearing fast.

Anyway enough of my babbling…time for some bedtime reading.

Yay another small weight loss…long may it continue!

Shake Your Booty

I’ve pounded the treadmill a few times this week and also had a mini yoga session at home…unfortunately it didn’t help with PMS aches and pains.

What I’m Up Too..

Yesterday I popped off to Suffolk to tick off a few spots that were sitting on my UK bucket list…I was so pleased to visit Clare, Cavendish and Long Melford…totally worth a visit, I think Suffolk is going to be the new Cotswolds!

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 13, 2017

This week I’m busy at work again…quarter end is in full swing so that keeps me out of trouble for two weeks.

How amazing was the weather this weekend…I did think Mother Nature was playing an April Fools joke as it was stunning weather and that we would potentially wake up to 6 foot of snow today…alas we did have a hail storm pass over us last night so I’m taking that as her little joke.

Anyway enough of my babbling…time to get ready for bed and the new working week!
