Because I bought diddly squat from the Hospice Shop yesterday, I think I shall go visit some of the other Hospice Shops around the area, see if I can find some treasure!
ABOVE: I'm enjoying this stuff ... but something tells me it's not too good for me. I bet pure, unadulterated popcorn would be fine though. Can someone work out just how 'bad' this stuff is? It ain't go much sugar in it!
ABOVE: the result of me labours yesterday morning. All tidy, organised to within an inch of me life! lol
ABOVE: Bex gave Dante the old rolling pin to play with. Rather typically he put it in his gob. By the look on his face (left), it didn't taste too good. And YES, there is still flour on the floor. I was hoping ANYONE but me would clean it up. DUMM DEE DOOooo....
Well... time to get me sneakers on and get on the treadmill... get the exercise out of the way for the day.
Hoping for another 30 minutes.
*** Just as a side note. I've got a little 'challenge' going on with a fellow blogger. We both aim to lose AT LEAST 4 kilos in the next 4 weeks.
Anyone want to join in? We are just keeping in touch via email, probably just one or two a day... sharing how our day is going any blimps
along the way, etc. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org IF you want to
I DID IT AGAIN. I walked for 30 minutes on the treadmill, listening to Glee! It sure makes the time go faster if you are listening to something you like.
Why do exercise in the morning? Because it sets you up for the day in a good frame of mind.
And you are less inclined to 'blow it' when you are feeling good about having done your exercise!
If you wait until the evening to exercise, for me anyway, I tend to think ... if I eat this evil piece of cake, I can 'work it off' tonight on the treadmill. DOES NOT HAPPEN. You get to the end of the day and you just don't have the energy to exercise.
So. Morning exercise works best for me. What about you?
And come on girls. Who's joining me and L with the 4 week challenge?
I'm really happy on one hand, and crabby as shit on the other!
HAPPY: because I resisted EVERY SINGLE THING that assaulted my nose while walking through the mall this morning! I ate NOTHING at all.
CRABBY? Cos I decided to try on some clothes... I wanted another top for winter. And OMG! There is nothing more demoralising than trying on clothes with HUGE BLOODY MIRRORS showing you JUST HOW FAT YOU LOOK.
From the front, the back AND the sides. NOT pretty. Nope, not at all.
If there was anything that will spur me on it's those freakin' mirrors. Nasty things they are.
I did find a top that I am happy with ... eventually.
Do you have any idea how many HOT FLUSHES I get from trying on clothes? TOOoooo many.
So. I have fallen in ♥LOVE♥ with a gift range called 'Britto'.
Gorgeous Disney characters, figurines, soft toys etc.
Today I got my FIRST one. It's my 'well done on pulling ya finger out' gift to myself.
ABOVE: Tallulah! She is only little, but so cute!
While I was taking Tallulah's photo, I dropped me lens cap on the floor. Dante looked for it for me:
ABOVE: on the left is his "Where did it go, it's GONE!" look. Then he found
it and tried putting it back on me camera. This kid is just so bloody
*** There's now 5 of us in the 4 week challenge! Ya, welcome to Linda,

***And now there's

B... thanks for jumping on board and helping us all lose 4 kilos (or 4
pounds), no pressure, just support.
If you don't lose 4... well hell...1,2 or 3 will be just fine too.
I will email everyone tonight before I go to bed, and again in the morning.
Let's get this 4X4 underway!
End of Day: really happy to have a little group of girlfriends to help with the
weight loss and a healthier lifestyle. Together, we can do it.
