Happy New Year guys, hope 2012 is going to rock for you.
I always find the new year is a real kick up the butt and gets me motivated for all the things i really want to do both business wise and personal things. One thing that is always on my list is to loose the pounds ie not the £ kind ! Thing is i love to eat but i have to retrain myself that you can still eat and get in shape just not doughnuts! Way back before i had my kids i had always been chunky but not so chunky i couldn’t go to the Mall (i live in Bristol and we have a shopping complex called The Mall) and go into any shop and find something that would fit, i had Amelia my first daughter and i put weight on and 5 years later when i had my second daughter Erin i got to moosive proportions which i am at now; i don’t like it at all and i’ve been like this for about 2 years now. I am an avid tweeter and someone posted a quote on there “if you don’t like something change it, if you can’t change it then learn to live with it” i think it was made by Maya Anjelou (spelling i am sorry my spelling is pretty pants). It is totally right and i CAN change my weight and i can’t learn to live with it so it’s got to go.
How about you, are you happy with your body?
The thing is if you look at things rationally weight loss isn’t going to be a fast thing, i didn’t wake up one day and find i’d put like 5 stone on! So i can’t expect to to loose it that fast. I have downloaded an App on my iphone which is called my net diary and you basically write down in it what you have eaten and it gives you the calories for it and it you are reaching your daily limit (you have to put your height in etc) i found it was quite good but you’ve got to be honest with what you are putting into it. What do you guys use to help you loose weight?
Anyway stepping aside form the weight thing i also thought i’d try new things with my hair and make-up. I’ve always had really long hair but never really done much with it, i’ve had it cut into slightly different styles but always end up coming back to the same one so i thought i’d try You Tube out and see how i can change my current style with clips, and curling it etc. WOW You Tube is amazing for finding tips on make-up and hairstyles etc .
I really like the 1950’s vibe and found a really cool video on YOu tube by a lady called Cherry Doll FAce, :
I like this because you don’t need lots of expensive make up – lots of what Cherry uses is make up you can find in boots. I do wonder about the eyebrow thing though and if it looks too obvious your eyebrows are painted on – but maybe i worry too much about looking like i obviously am wearing make up and should just go with the flow a bit more. I think Cherry looks really fab with her make up on (she’s is very pretty without) and there is a big difference between her when she has make up on and off. What do you think?
