The end of the week!


It’s Friday and I’m so happy about it. I’m actually writing this from my bed as I’ve been asleep on the sofa for the last hour and didn’t get round to writing anything!

This week has been a tough one. Work has been a mental drain. 

Tomorrow and Sunday are for boring food shopping, housework, chores and mindless binge watching of tv… I feel like every weekend is the same lately, but it’s what I feel like I need. 

I’d like to be a really interesting person with a totally exciting, fun adventure filled life, but I’m not… life hasn’t been like that for a while, although this year has probably been one of the most boring for a long time!! I’ve not been abroad this year either, for the first time since I was a child. It’s been a bit rubbish actually! Ah well, first world problems and all that!!

I’ve nothing good to say about food and no photos either, so here’s a completely irrelevant pic of my kitties; Leonard and Sheldon…

Happy Friday all!


Sleep – it’s overrated anyway!


How’s your Tuesday been? Mine has been pretty tiring!! Sleep hasn’t been very good to me lately!

I work in London on the days that I’m not at home, so I was up at 5:30 this morning after about 2 hours sleep… a couple of days of that is fine, but I’m verging on not remembering the last time I had a decent sleep. I really hope that eating better and exercising more will help. Being tired from a lack of sleep, along with the sluggishness of a crappy diet really isn’t fun – it’s my own fault though!

I have to say that I’ve been so hungry all day. I hate the first week or so of cutting out junk, my body thinks it hates me more now than when I’ve scoffed down a few beers and a load of crisps. It doesn’t, but my mind thinks I’ll feel better if I just eat something naughty… mind over matter, as they say.

Today I’ve had porridge with a bit of fruit compote (apparently it’s international porridge day today – who even knew!?), a little popcorn cereal bar thing (that’s as bad as it gets! It’s pretty low in everything to be honest), a “Green & Grain” chicken salad from Pret and homemade spaghetti bolognese for dinner – although with pasta instead of spaghetti, and a yoghurt… I am so hungry lol. I know I shouldn’t be, but seriously, I’ve eaten like a pig for about 3 years now and it’s all caught up with me.

Green and Grain salad – aka Healthy Shit

Exercise wise today, I’ve walked a fair bit. I have a decent walk to and from work and I loaded myself up with bags – yep, I forget that I have to walk to the station, then get on a train and then walk home and buy way more than I can actually carry… Boots had my favourite shower gel on offer for £1 and my shampoo at 3 for £10, so I had to stock up. Usually that’s not a problem, but I had just been to Tesco and bought a bunch of food for home! My neck and shoulders are paying the price for that now 😂 Surely that counts as some kind of weight lifting!? No… oh well!

Enough rambling on… catch up again soon!
