Everyone seems to be excited about the inclusion of Macca in everything apart from the British. 

That’d be because we get it EVERY BLOODY TIME AND I HATE THAT SONG ANYWAY. Thankfully last night we didn’t have to put up with it.

I missed slimming world this week. I tried to use excuses that I was too busy or too stressed but I could have made it if I had tried.
The last few weeks have been stressful with Yusufs suspension and we have made it no easier on ourselves by spending too much money and deciding to move. All this on top of my stressful job at the moment and we are Both close to bursting.

It also turns out that we are most definitely comfort eaters so chocolate and biscuits have been a crutch for the last few weeks. This is a vicious circle because these “treats” give me some instant pleasure but actually make my body feel shit and get me more depressed.
I need to use tumblr as my bible and swear a fresh start for me.
I have lost nearly four stone in 2012 and
A) I don’t want to put it back on ever
B) its just not enough! I want 5stone by Christmas!

237- have I mentioned we are moving? We’ve been in this flat two years but in a weeks time we will be moving downstairs in the same block to a larger place. I’ve started some of the packing already and today I took Down all the photos. It was a bit of an emotional experience because even though I see these photos everyday it’s been sometime since I really looked at them. There was some of when yusuf I first got together and a few of yusufs niece but the silver frame shows a photo of my grandfather who died two years ago just as we moved into this place. I think about him a lot but seeing the picture made me realise I how much I still miss him

236- after over a year of prep we are now getting close to hearing about our bid to the welsh government to run a big communities first project across East Cardiff, Llanedeyrn and Pentwyn. We want to keep people up to date so I got this banner printed and gave started a series of drop ins across the area where people can ask us questions in the plans.

238- dinner at our friends Martin and Liz’s tonight and I was very excited. Los is a fantastic cook and we were treated to a roast tomato soup with homemade bread, braised pheasant and both tiramisu and fresh fruit meringues for desert. Obviously this was gracefully accompanied with a festival of wine and followed with cheese.

With everything that’s gone in lately I’ve realised how much I enjoyed just spending time with people I like. We ate, we drank and we chatted. Perfection.

234- I gained a pound in slimming world this week. It’s obviously disappointing but considering what I’ve eaten and the lack of exercise it’s a pretty good result!

There has been a lot going on in the last few weeks and both the diet and exercise have been victims.
I’m back in work after some leave now and I need to make sure that I get back in track for all of it. Things can get stressful but I have to get it into my head that the exercise and diet will actually make me feel better in the long run
