Weight: Unknown…I was so excited about the snow I forgot to weigh myself!

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 49, 2017

My Life Goal, ze Weight

The snow was a total distraction this morning…oh snow, forgets to weigh myself or eat breakfast.

Shake Your Booty

I was kind to my body and have avoided exercise due to a lot of stomach pain.

What I’m Up Too…

Okay…can we all please take a moment to be thankful for the councils and the folks driving the gritters and ploughs over the past 3-4 days please.  I’m in such a rage over peoples idea of what their council tax entitles them too…apparently a perfectly ploughed street every ten seconds…nope it doesn’t!

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 49, 2017

^^On my walk down to Waitrose to pick up some cereal for Gritham

G aka Gritham as he is currently called by my friends is out working his arse off to make sure roads are kept clear and are gritted in Milton Keynes, that took a huge hit of snow overnight and today…take the time to be grateful that the council is doing this rather than issuing everyone with a shovel to clear their own road.  G is bloody knackered and he has to go to work tomorrow but still is going out gritting tonight…why did everyone need to go shopping today?

I had a disagreement with someone on twitter after Gritham told me that they were getting slaughtered on twitter…I asked someone what was more important; a clear road to a hospital or a retail park?  This was after he complained that residents were amazed they hadn’t cleared a retail park.  Honestly people are fuckwits…where has the common sense gone in this country and why do people need to go out shopping…enjoy the snow with your family and have a home day; play in the snow, watch movies, bake or play board games…if you need to go shopping, you can do it online.

No sarcasm is required…councils are working hard to sort the roads out so please give the gritter drivers the respect they deserve on the roads over the next few days please…and give them a toot and a wave to say you have appreciated their hard work as they probably haven’t seen their loved ones due to their unsociable hours….this afternoon was the first time since Thursday evening that G has made it in to hospital to see his mum.

Anyway enough of this snow rant!

I had my coil removed on Tuesday…it didn’t go to plan and almost ended up having to have an emergency operation that afternoon…nothing with my fanny or bottom is easy!  I love a good awkward scene and there is nothing more awkward when you have two specialists trying to pull a coil out and it getting stuck…getting told to relax…replied I’m relaxed as I’m thinking you’re George Clooney…getting told I’m hilarious…I’m pretty funny in awkward situations if I do say so myself (up there with the time, when the young man had to give me an internal ultrasound…he told me to relax…I told him I was ready and excited but normally preferred to know the guys name and a spot of dinner prior to penetration…the lady in the corner was in fits of giggles..the young man was red as a beetroot…I then went on to discuss what I fancied for lunch…the lady told me it was the best ultra sound she had ever witnessed…the young man couldn’t meet my eyes especially after I asked him if I was the best he had ever had!)

So having a great hormone crash now…sleepy all the time, eye ball headaches / migraines, nausea (thankfully very different to the SPS related nausea which is truly horrendous!) but can’t work out what the stomach pains relate to…coil removal, bladder infection or diverticulitis…the pain is getting worse not better…at least my eyesight has returned to normal and no longer blurry…woohoo a silver lining.  Fingers crossed its not diverticulitis again as I don’t fancy joining G’s mum in hospital.

And the best thing…I have totally no emotions…when I was ranting above…my nostrils didn’t flare and I didn’t feel anger…I just typed…I’ve gone from constant rage to totally no emotions at all and it’s bloody weird!

I know that I sound like a total hypochondriac but normally where there is smoke there is a fire somewhere in my body…and my lower left side is bloody painful.  Trying to do what the doctors have told me; which is to listen to my body and work out what each pain relates too….easier said than done along with having bed rest!

But other than that I’m a total box of fluffies and loving life (as much as you can do without emotions)!

Ana aka Mrs O Around the World wrote a very personal post about her IVF journey…I have my fingers and toes crossed for Mr O after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer this week during this journey.  When it rains, it pours!

I just realised that this is week 49…almost at the end of the year; how did that happen?

Anyway enough of my babbling; did you have a lovely weekend?

Weight: Unknown…

My Life Goal, ze Weight

No weigh in this week as I was away on holiday…weighing yourself while on holiday should be against the law!

Shake Your Booty

We walked a lot over the past five days in Austria and Germany…then I ate cake as a pat on the back for doing exercise….oh, oh, ohhhhh….I did yoga on holiday as well…check me out!

What I’m Up Too…

So right now I’m trying to write a blog post, watching a dodgy Christmas movie (ask G and he will tell you that I’ve being watching dodgy Christmas movies since October…which is true!) and doing a load of washing.

G, his mum and I went to Austria and Germany for five days…this was my fourth time in Salzburg and it was so lovely to see it under a blanket of snow…

Austria Travel Inspiration - 48 Hours in Salzburg During Winter and the Christmas Markets

…the Christmas markets are really delightful in Salzburg and the surrounding villages…I’ve already written a big blog post with tips which I will post during the week…just need to put some finishing touches on the post…and straighten up a few photos.

Austria Travel Inspiration - 48 Hours in Salzburg During Winter and the Christmas Markets

This coming week is rather busy…trying to do two month end days in one…without any help…Tuesday going to the hospital for my 6 month check up…hard to believe that my last operation was almost 6 months ago but am rather excited about this appointment as the coil is coming out (oversharing yes…do I care, nope…it’s my blog!)...I have my fingers crossed that my eyeball headaches are going to disappear and I’m pretty sure everyone around me is hoping that my massive mood swings go as well…G’s mum is having an operation and I still need to do about 6 loads of washing.

Anyway enough of my babbling; did you have a lovely weekend?

My Life Goal, ze Weight

A slight weight loss again which is good…still doing my eating thing.

Shake Your Booty

Tried to do a bit of exercise this week…probably didn’t do as much as I wanted but hey ho…I did do some yoga which relaxed me so can’t complain about that.

What I’m Up Too…

Working…working…working…and cleaning….basically this on repeat.  I am still decluttering and can see the improvement around the house which is a great feeling as was feeling a bit down that I wasn’t seeing enough white walls…even though our walls are mainly grey but you know what I mean!

Did some gardening this afternoon as the sun was setting…it wasn’t as cold as I thought it would be to be fair.  Then came inside where it was all toasty warm and had a cuppa…a perfect autumn Sunday afternoon.

We are off to Salzburg this Wednesday for a 5 days which should be fun…can’t wait to see what the Christmas markets in Salzburg are like.  I’ve visited quite a few in Germany over the years so am looking to visiting one in Austria…here are my tips if you are thinking of visiting the Christmas Markets in Germany.

Is anyone else over receiving Black Friday and Cyber Monday emails??  I think I deleted over 100 emails over the past few days…it’s truly horrendous how commercial everything has become!  And I haven’t checked my blog email for quite a few days either…eek!

Yeah I’m pretty boring to be honest…just sorting things out at home…a tidy, decluttered home = a tidy mind.

Anyway enough of my babbling; hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!

My Life Goal, ze Weight

So the weight has come down this week which is great news…I’ve changed my diet a lot over the past week and have stopped eating processed foods including bread and dare I say it, chocolate and McD’s Ice Cream Sundaes…to be fair when G bought me home a chocolate bar yesterday I told him to eat it instead, I didn’t waver once.

I’ve read a number of articles on foods that cause cancer so have taken a lot of things on board and am now eating a whole lot healthier…I may now look at chocolate bars and think, you’re going to give me cancer you little mother f**ker…in reality I know that’s not the case but it’s currently where I am at and it stops me eating chocolate bars as well so a win win.

Just so you’re aware, I look at microwaves as cancer machines…I’m one of those weirdos…we have one and I’m thinking of getting rid of it however G needs it to warm up his wheat bag…which happens about 4 times a year!

Shake Your Booty

So no exercise…I decided to focus on getting my food right this week and will focus on the exercise side of it next week…hopefully I will have a lot more energy next week as feel a bit drain hormonally this week.

What I’m Up Too…

Well after last weeks rather shitty week, I drew a line under it and started this week afresh and felt in a much better place…helped with healthier eating and early nights.

I’ve finished reading a book called Start with Your Sock Drawer: The Simple Guide to Living a Less Cluttered Life (it’s cheaper to buy a used version of this book from amazon…plus it’s better for the environment!) and basically fell in love with Vicky…Vicky runs her own decluttering business called You Need A Vicky which I think is bloody awesome.

Even though I have being decluttering for what feels like the whole year, I just don’t feel like I’ve gotten anywhere…I know I have decluttered a lot as most of my clothes now hang up in my wardrobe rather than over a wardrobe and two large chest of drawers but I still felt rather cluttered.

But I needed to get brutal and this book has made me get very intense with my decluttering…I’m attacking a drawer one at a time and have bags of items to go to the charity shop and have listed a crap load more things on ebay.  I emptied out the cupboard under our breakfast bar on Friday when I got home from work…and most of the things ended up getting recycled or binned so then I had more storage space…woohoo!

After reading a number of personal finance books and this decluttering book, I now can’t really pull a trigger on buying clothes on line…if only I read these books years ago.

Now just in case you didn’t realise…my family and I are totally into Christmas…here is my folk’s Christmas Army…

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 46, 2017

…what do you think?  Go big or go home is our motto when it comes to Christmas.  I need to get G into the loft to get all my smokers and nutcrackers so I can see what I have before we head to the Christmas Markets..this is one area I won’t be decluttering!

G, his mum and I went to see Tango Moderno on Wednesday night at the Milton Keynes Theatre…it’s a dance show featuring Flavia and Vincent from Strictly Come Dancing…I’m going to say it, I was disappointed…I felt like I was watching a high school dance production…there just wasn’t enough Argentinian Tango in it for me and Vincent had hurt his back so he wasn’t dancing (looking at reviews, this wasn’t just a one off and we only found out on the night).  Expensive and just not that good unfortunately!

Anyway enough of my babbling; Happy Weekend Everyone!

“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!
