So last week I got the news I had been waiting for for over a year now! I finally have a house!
I am so excited. I’ve been buying things for my house for a little under 6 months now! Every penny I have spare has gone towards things for our house.
Just me Riley and Coco and we are so excited.
Obviously this house is a council house. I know it might be a shock to some people and I know some people can be very judgemental when it comes to council houses but it’s not what they look like on the outside, it’s how they look on the inside and I already have so many beautiful ideas!
The house is currently in repairs due to the previous tenants trashing the house. Garden fence all needs replacing and a total new one putting in.
I can’t wait to put my own personal mark on the place and I’m looking forward to doing all the decorating more then anything!
Riley of course has asked for a superhero bedroom and with him been my very own superhero he is definitely having that! We have lots of toys to take with us so it’s finding space for them too again so that should be fun.
I will try and do weekly house updates as much as I can. I just hope the houses isn’t in repairs for too long as I’m toooo excited to move in!
It’s the first weigh in of February this week! February is a hard month for me as I have so much going on it tends to be harder to diet when I’m busy.
I have my mums birthday and planned meals out, rileys party and birthday all in the same week so that makes my diet even harder!
Sooooooo… I have tried my best this week to get that bigger weight loss!
I’ve been having my healthy A choices and B choice.
I’ve really enjoyed having my B choice as a weightwatchers wrap with chicken and salad for dinner. It’s different from a boring sandwich!
I’ve also up’t my exercise aswell this week! I’ve been taking Coco round our block – round the housing easte – twice each time I have taken her for a walk. It’s really helped and given me such a bought I think.
I’ve been having a few slimming world meals too. I did go out for a meal with Riley and my sister on Monday at Frankies and Bennies but I got a lovely chicken salad with no dressing so the syns value didn’t work out that high at all.
I also didn’t have a takeaway last Friday either so saved a lot of my syns not having that which worked out better.
So last week I gained 1.5lbs.
I LOST 4.5lbs!!!!!
Oh my god!
I am so pleased with myself.
So proud too!
Bloody damn well deserve it after all my effort this week.
I can’t wait to see what I do next week. Definitely going to plan ahead and keep on track with my exercise!
Okay so last week I lost a lovely 2 pounds!!! Yeeey I was so happy and definitely planned for another loss this week too but, how I failed this week…
So I bought more slimming world meals on the Saturday morning, ready for my week ahead I knew what I was having. But, Riley started to feel unwell in the afternoon. He was sick, then the diarrhoea started. After he was sick he felt better but he was sleeping a lot that afternoon so I still decided I was going to go out for a meal and cinema like I’d planned.
I went to go to Glass! Wouldn’t waste your time btw.
As soon as I got home I went to check in Riley, as I always do. Riley had had an accident in his sleep, the smell was terrible! After changing his bed and giving him a wash. I was awake most the night, humming and aaarrring weather or not to ring 111 and get some advice. I decided to sleep on it and ring them in the morning…
The Sunday morning he wasn’t much better. He wasn’t eating only drinking, the sickness and diarrhoea was still there and he looked so pale. I decided to ring 111 and get advice. They told me to get to the hospital A&E within the hour. Obviously I was emotionally eating! My sister bless her brought me food to keep me going but because I was tired I just wanted to say rubbish so I did.
Turned out Riley had a terrible bug. Didn’t send him to school Monday and Tuesday. So I carried on eating rubbish followed by more rubbish and more rubbish! Sugar drinks the lot. Anything to keep my energy up because I was just so tired!
Wednesday I didn’t feel that great I was light headed so more sugar drinks and chocolate was my only answer.
Then Thursday I was blessed with my star week. So as you can imagine I’ve had a rubbish week. Urgh.
Sooooooooo… this week the scales said… I had put 1.5lbs ON!
Which I was expecting.
This week I’m going to try my best to get that off and a little more! I’m going to plan ahead. Plan my meals. Plan my snacks. Plan everything I can! I’m going to really push myself.
PARKING!!!! Right there is nothing more in the world that annoys me more then the people that park in the disabled spaces that don’t have a disabled badge or just don’t have a disabled badge displayed! Bearing in mind that the school only has TWO disabled spaces – ridiculous I know! I have had plenty of many many many arguments with parents/carers at the school that have parked in the disabled spaces and don’t have a badge! Seriously it boils my blood and makes me so angry! I literally shake they make me so mad! The thing is though when I argue with them or ask them where they’re disabled badge is or why they haven’t displayed their disabled badge they move. WHY PARK THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE? How did you even pass your test? Why you so lazy? Can you not park properly? This women used to always park in the disabled space, one day I waited for her and simply said, think you got to display your disabled badge love, she’s never parked there since and tbh she’s always early to school now. Just goes to show doesn’t it?
Time Consuming, I don’t care what anyone says school runs take up a lot of time. Open the drive gates, get in the car and warm it up – Riley hates a cold car. Try to park, walk into school and through the play ground, stand in the queue to drop off, give cuddle and kiss to riley, walk back through the playground, to the car and drive home! total time 20 minutes!!!
The parents, I have now been doing school runs for 3 years, not long as you think but I have learnt that the parents are worse than the kids! I’ve seen full on arguments and near enough fights in the playground. Everybody near enough has their own little clicky groups, arranging sleepovers or parties that you know your child clearly isn’t invited too. On a Friday morning I take riley a little later then normal because I honestly can not stand making small talk with one parent in particular, nasty I know! I have my two/three friends I do the school runs with and I’m happy keeping it like that!
The weather, I cant stand standing in the cold and i cant stand standing in the rain! So my cold is pretty much my best friend. I will not get out the car until its nearly time for the kids coming out of school. I will have the heating on full blast too in the car if its cold! The rain must know when its time for school its time to rain.
Kids swearing, the older kids language is just disgusting, why they feel the need to swear to much is beyond me!
Parents walking two miles behind their kids, why some parents let their kids run 5 miles in front of them has always been questionable to me? Just why? what if a car came round the corner and full on hit your kids? If your 3 miles behind your kids, how you going to stop them crossing the road? How do you know if they will even wait?
So last week I lost a rubbish half a pound. I mean was there any point me trying last week because I really did try!
So this week I bought Slimming World meals from Iceland and I planned to have them. But, I ended up treating myself to a takeaway on Friday night and Saturday night and also Wednesday night! I mean really Sophie really? What was I even thinking? Totally failed this week. But I told you I was going to be honest with you and I am been.
But the meals that haven’t been a takeaway have been surprisingly good.
So this week the scales said….. id LOST 2lbs!
I cant believe it, honestly, I just cant. I wasn’t well this morning though so maybe it was because of that?
Im going out this weekend for a meal and to the cinema to watch Glass. So im going to be good on Friday and have a few chocolates and then my treat day is Saturday and that’s it back on plan on Sunday! I don’t want to be this size forever.
I passed my test first time in 2017. I have had my pink licence for over a year now and it’s one of my biggest achievements!!!
But I haven’t stopped learning since I passed my driving test.. I’m learning everyday tbh.
So what lessons have I learnt after passing my driving test?
You’ll forget the Highway Code 5 minutes after passing your test. Don’t even get me started on street signs, I have no idea!
Your scariest drive will be the first one you do by yourself. The first time I drove by myself I went to crown point in Leeds and had the music on singing my heart out until I remember that I had to listen for sirens and constraint on the road… ops!
You will stall the car more times then you did during the first few months of lessons! Definitely doesn’t get any less embarrassing. I once stalls my first car – Renault capture on a park hill! The car just kept rolling backwards was so scary.
It’s all fun and games until you become everybody’s personal taxi driver! Honestly you will! Family and friends will be asking you to take them all over. All of a sudden they’ve lost the use of their legs!
You will become lazy! I live a 5 minute walk away from Asda and I always go in the car! Always!
You will swear so much more behind the wheel!! Not our fault nobody else can drive properly!
You will loose all ability to parallel park. Your best of avoiding any situation where you may have to try.
Tbh there is no better feeling then getting in your car with your music on loud singing your heart out! Always create a playlist!!! And always make sure you have your phone cable go charge your phone.
This year I am definitely going to be sharing my Slimming World journey with you all, my meal plan each week and if the scales were good to me.
As I didn’t really eat slimming world friendly at all over Christmas and new year I have been dreading what the scales are going to say to me on a Friday.
But I’m going to be honest, I’m going to share pictures of my body etc because I think it will help motive myself and hopefully other people.
I want to be healthy for Riley, I want to feel good about myself. I don’t want people to look at me and think ‘she’s fat’ I don’t want my grandad telling me I’ve got three chins either – don’t worry he only jokes, I hope!
So every Friday I will be sharing a weekly slimming world blog post. I will let you know what the scales say and I will be totally honest!
Each Friday after group me and my friend also go to subway for lunch, its something we both look forward to each week! A footlong and a pack of cookies, its literally making my mouth water just thinking about the cookies right now.
So this week, I have lost 1.5lbs!
Quite happy with that tbh, since I went out for tea on Tuesday and had a Pizza Hut so yeah I am happy with that little loss! But I obviously know I would have lost more if I wouldn’t have had the Pizza Hut. Oh and the few little chocolates I’ve been pinching out my box on a night.
So next week I’m going to aim for… 3pounds!!!!! Do you think I’ll be able to do it?
Going to be doing my meal plan for next week tonight and plan some really speedy meals!
Having pizza for tea tonight for my little treat for the weekend!
