It's rather funny how your confidence grows as your weight goes down. I'm now around a third of the way to my target and am already feeling so much better about myself. The Press Play challenge has helped as well as it's made me realise that there is no point in waiting. I've fancied having a straight, fifties-esque fringe for quite a while now, but always put it on the Things I'll Do When I Get To Target list. Having lost some weight, and signed up for Press Play (and having a wee bit of spare cash this month), I decided to take the plunge and get a fringe cut in.
The general Facebook consensus is a rather wonderful thumbs up, and I LOVE it! I'm so glad that I didn't wait! (Please note the make-up, as part of the Press Play challenge). Hague likes it, but is rather shell shocked as despite me telling him I was having a fringe, this wasn't what he expected. Quite what he expected I'm not sure :)
Anyway - onto foodly delights as that is why you put up with my random witterings after all :) I actually managed to have breakfast shortly after waking up today, and after only one cuppa! Progress indeed!
I am loving my pineapple at the moment, and it was perfect before heading to the hairdressers, where as well as having a fringe cut in, and my hair dyed black again (goodbye greys!) I got to catch up with my lovely hairdresser Faye, as it had been way too long since I'd been and so we had a good ol' natter :)
After several hours of lovely pampering and chatting (and coming home via McDonalds for Hague) I was rather hungry when I got in. Luckily I only fancied something simple and so it was ready quickly.
Pasta in a tomato sauce. The sauce couldn't have been easier, a tin of tomatoes with some oregano, black pepper, tomato puree and garlic. Then just topped with 50g of Feta, sometimes all you want is something simple and this really hit the spot.
I guess that the next picture you're expecting here is my dinner....erm....we are in a rather drinky kind of mood this evening, and so this is what I'm swallowing next.
Sorry - it's my week off, it's been a while since myself and Hague have had the money to treat ourselves to some booze and we have both been looking forward to trying the honey Jack Daniels forever and so this evening Slimming World shall take a backseat whilst we drink ourselves silly. Now, I still have a HeB and HeA choice and so I have some flexibility for snacks later without resorting to off plan food, so the damage shall purely be liquid, delicious, intoxicating liquid :)
A - 50g of Feta and....?
B - to be eaten later :)
Quite a scarily large amount of booze!
I did receive the next Press Play challenge a day or two ago as well. It's a very intriguing one I must say. I'll certainly be trying out the ideas from the video, and will be taking the plunge with something scary too - am guessing I can't use the new haircut ;)
Press Play Challenge #3
Fake it till you make it. This is an amazing inspirational video from an amazing lady. Watch it and be ready to fake it till you make it!
Okay, so that's the next challenge - the statements in red are the ones that I do....quite a few more than three as you can see :) Hopefully that'll come down as the challenges progress. As you can see I've already got the haircut done, and since it's been done I've not stopped looking in the mirror! Give the video a look too, it's very interesting, and something I'll be trying.
