Weight: 95.1 kgs
“I have none of the usual inducements of women to marry. Were I to fall in love, indeed, it would be a different thing! but I never have been in love; it is not my way, or my nature; and I do not think I ever shall. And, without love, I am sure I should be a fool to change such a situation as mine. Fortune I do not want; employment I do not want; consequence I do not want.” – Jane Austen, Emma
My Life Goal, ze Weight
Up we go again…I’ve basically being in a bit of a funk this week and have eaten my body weight in food…note to self: turn a new leaf on Monday.
Shake Your Booty
I was really good this week with exercise; I’ve walked on my treadmill to Greece and back…did a bit of yoga and today I walked into town rather than taking my car…cars do tend to make you rather lazy and also walking into town meant that I bought a lot less stuff as well…note to self: walking into town going forward is going to save you pennies.
What I’m Up Too…
After feeling rather fabulous last week, I was prepared for a dip…Monday I felt wonderful…I put my big girls knickers on and drove myself to my hospital appointment in London…felt okay after the appointment…chatted to G and folks about said appointment…then suddenly everything clicked inside my head late Monday evening.
Something that they removed during my colonoscopy in August contained cancer cells; everything was contained and it was all removed during the colonoscopy as it wasn’t at the tumour stage, no further treatment is required. I was lucky due to my regular screenings and the team that looks after my colon care are the best at preventing and treating colon cancer in the UK…something that I need to always remember so I don’t get into this funk again.
Tuesday I was pretty much an emotional mess…I was the idiot sitting at my desk in tears trying to reconcile shit…by Wednesday I had pulled myself together but still felt down in the proverbial dumps. Have started to feel a bit more perky but nothing compared to last week…a shock to the system takes a bit to recover from and even though I was prepared that I’m more likely to have colon cancer than the average Joe Blogs, when you realise your body is producing cancer cells it does knock you for six.
So do you have any tips on how to get out of a funk?!?
I didn’t fancy writing a blog post this week as my heart just wasn’t in it.
So moving on from the shitty C word…today I’ve actually just continued with my huge autumn clear out and clean up. I read in the Good House Keeping Magazine that you should do a huge Autumn clean rather than a Spring clean due to spending a number of months hibernating inside your home.
I’m going to make gluten free mince pies tomorrow…well I’m going to give them a go anyway. I found some cranberry mince meat in Waitrose last weekend so am ready to eat my body weight in mince pies in November.
I had my hair cut on Thursday night and it’s short, short, short…I’ve had so many men tell me how much they love my hair over the past two days including the butcher this morning…and they say men never notice things!
G and I are planning our New Zealand escape…Daddy gave me some good suggestions last night which I think are a total goer.
Is anyone else loving all the Christmas adverts that are now on the telly? Absolutely loving them…and even New Zealand is creating some corkers this year. Check out the Farmers ad.
Thank you to my proof reader that sent me through certain changes to this post – do I get a gold star now?
Anyway enough of my babbling; I hope everyone is having a lovely wekeend!
