Marilyn Musings...

“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up becuase if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”

9th May

Oh hi everyone!

Hope you are all ok.
I've been very good since my last post. I've been on Slimming World now for 5 weeks and lost 11lbs!
I'm really hoping for 3lbs this week then that will be 1 stone gone in my first 6 weeks back on it.
I'm going out on Friday night for Gemma's birthday but I won't go mad. Stick to my vodka and diet cokes. And take a rain check on the usual kebab and chips on the way home.
Might take a tip from a lovey lady at group, make some SW chips before I go out and then I can heat them up and eat them in a drunken state when I get home!

I've got to do my measurements tonight too. See how many inches (if any!) have melted away.
I'm meant to do it on the 10th but the lovely Brad is coming over tomorrow night to dye my hair back to my radiant shade of red. It's faded a lot and I don't like it.

I did plan to get up at 6am this morning, go for an hours swim, come back, get ready and go to work. But it really didn't happen. My alarm went off and I told it to do one.
Maybe one day I will be a morning person, but I just love my sleep too much!!

Right, I have a cake to decorate tonight so the plan is, go home, ice the cake board, fill the cake and put it in the fridge to set. Whilst doing that maybe make some lovely SW bolognaise and spaghetti. Munch that, decorate the cake, win the lottery, job done. :-)

I could post a very self-indulgent message about how bad I've been and how awful I feel etc etc but I'll stick to the facts.

  1. I gave up on Slimming World very soon after I had restarted in January.
  2. I ate and drunk everything I could get my hands on.
  3. I had a FANTASTIC time doing it.
  4. I have put on two stone and am now the heaviest I have been in my adult life.
  5. I now realise the time has come to change.
  6. I don't want to be this big anymore.
  7. I can't stand the thought of being a fat bride.
  8. I am joining a new group tomorrow night that's closer to home.
  9. I am very excited about starting again.
  10. This will be the LAST time I start again.

That is all.

23rd January

So I only lost 1lb this week, however, with the amount of alcohol I have consumed and the MEGA McDonald's breakfast on a hangover, I'm not shocked, in fact, I'm really rather grateful!
Back on it this morning though. Even though I didn't have time for breakfast (naughty) so by 11:30am I was so light headed. But I've now had my sushi lunch and feel much better!
Tonight's plans are 30 mins on the Wii Fit (my thighs are killing me from all the dancing at the weekend!) dinner of eggs, beans and Quorn sausages, a green day haven! And then I'm thinking of a nice hot bath later tonight, around 9pm - Lovely.
Tallulah is at the vets today, getting a kitty abortion. :-( I'm thinking of her and hope she will be ok. Lots of cuddles with the fluffy lady tonight too!

Right, back to work! xo

17th January

Haha! So blogging every day didn't take into account 'show week' with nightly rehearsals and being busy ALL weekend.
But normality has somewhat resumed. 2lbs off this week, making that 5lbs in the fortnight. Which is nice! Food wise has been fine, albeit with having Saturday off to munch during performances and get a bit tipsy in the evening!
The panto went really well. I enjoyed it so much and now I miss rehearsals already!
I've got a few sociable occasions coming up with my panto family though so I won't feel so left out.
Right, back to work. Love love xoxo

12th January

Ok, so blogging EVERYDAY seemed harder than I imagined.
I'm just too busy at the moment! (I know, 'who does she think she is?')
But all this week I have had rehearsals every night for the panto 'Mother Goose' that I am performing in Hadlow this weekend. Show week is always a bitch. Working all day, rehearsing every night. I'm knackered!
Last night was the first and only dress rehearsal. It went ok, but I did mess up a couple of times. On the wrong side of the stage twice, fluffed my lines a little, but it will be ok!
Tonight is a 'gabble' rehearsal where we just sit around and say our lines. Just to make sure they are engraved in our memories! Then the first show is Friday night at 8pm, two shows on Saturday, one matinee at 3pm and one evening at 7:30pm and on Sunday we do a special show for kids with learning disabilities which is nice. What isn't nice is that we have to be there for 9:30am. Ouch.

Food wise I'm still doing good. Haven't gone over my syns, haven't eaten anything 'bad'. Obviously with rehearsals every night I can't fit any exercise in but I'm dancing about and such like so I'm moving at least!
I have to stop weighing myself every day though. It fluctuates SO much and it's soul destroying! But there you go.

Right, enough of my prattling on.

8th January

Let the Sunday in!
No hangover, always good. I didn't drink that much anyway. I had 8 single vodka and diet cokes and one cocktail of vodka, couintreau, grenadine and this foamy stuff that tasted like love hearts. It was very tasty. And on the way home everyone got chips but I waited until I got in and had 2 ryvita wholegrain cracker breads and low fat super noodles.
I haven't done any exercising yet. I need to kick Gav off the PS3 so I can play on the Wii!!
Food today, I had eggs, baked beans and quorn sausages for brunch. Probably tonight I will make something pasta and tomato based with veg and some quorn products. 

I might have a nap for now. I went to sleep just after 4am. *Yawn*
