Sugar Rush

IMG_0401

Friday is here! Thank the lord! I think a break is long over due.

After a tiring week I cannot wait to just sit down and pretty much do nothing.

I recently bought a reed diffuser for my room because, you know, I’m a grown up now…(looks around in disbelief). As you can see I was drawn in by the pretty packaging and shiny writing…(clearly I am a grown up). Due to my lack of sugar intake on my new health kick, I felt as though I needed to at least have the scent around me at all times. Maybe I’ve discovered a new form of dieting.

Anyway thanks everyone for sticking with me so far and I hope you all have a great weekend and I’ll see you next week!

Moral: Don’t just buy something because it’s shiny.

Finally it’s Friday! What are you doing this weekend?… Letting your hair down? Hitting the clubs? Sitting at home with your 3 cats binge watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix?

I know which one I would choose…(wink wink…I only have two cats so it doesn’t make me sad).

Anyway…whatever you’re getting up to make sure you’re always thinking about those small goals, find the time to do those 20 push ups a day, only have one cheat meal rather than a cheat day/weekend. As long as you’re not changing too much your body can adapt to a new routine and you wont struggle as you may used to.

Don’t let your friends guilt you into going for a ‘few drinks’ down the pub which ends up being 4 pitchers of porn star martini with another three pints for dessert. Be the responsible driver, make decisions to leave you with no choice, but to stick to your new targets.

Anyone else do their weekly food shop on a Friday or Saturday? I like to write down meals that I would want to have/try throughout the week and pick out the ingredients for my shopping list. My main struggle for keeping my energy levels up is finding healthy snack alternatives. I’ve recently been having Hartley’s 5 Cal jellies in a pot (even though they say 10 Cal on the front it’s actually 5 Calories on the nutritional info), they take me ages to finish which for me, works wonders because most of the time I think my body simply needs the motion of having something to eat.
