I had a huge post planned. It went into great detail about my wonderful 10 days of with my two boys, the time I spent with my family and just the general indulgence of it all. I had a truly fabulous time, turning 30 was great. I did the half marathon just like I knew… Continue reading The things that happened in May
I *may* have mentioned that it's my birthday soon and that I will be turning 30. I'm not that much of a drinker and I'm not planning a major night out. That's just not really me. I am planning a trip to York though. I've always wanted to visit York. In my head it's a… Continue reading Prepared to be unprepared
I gave up all obvious sugars on 27th March, here's how I've got on. It's been alright! Don't get me wrong; I've hated petty much every second of it, but I've been pleasantly surprised by my will power and determination to not give in to all the sugary treats around me. I've had one or… Continue reading Sugar Update – The End is Nigh
Just a quick one tonight as I'm tired and a little grouchy... Wow! Where did that three weeks go? So I've been off obvious sugars now for three weeks, it's been so difficult and I really am surprised I managed to get this far. I've done really well, and I am proud of myself. I've… Continue reading No Sugar Update: 3 Weeks In
I'm not sure exactly why, but I've been thinking about my grandparents a lot recently. One of the reasons could be that someone at work was selling some knitted goods their mother had created and was donating all the proceeds to a prostate cancer charity. I don't know the guy that well, but the way… Continue reading Grandparents

One of the things that Mike always says about me is that I worry far too much and that I over think everything. He knows me so well, because I really do. I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to dwelling on things. I'm shit at decision making. I've been trying to do some… Continue reading I’ll stick with being me
Grrr. I am not happy. I feel like crap, I think I've got some kind of stomach bug, my stomach feels like a washing machine. I'm trying not to puke. This is not how I envisaged week one of no sugar month. From a positive point of view, I've managed to make it to day… Continue reading Three Days Sugar Free (plus moaning)
Sugar stuff Moving on from last week, I've roped a few people at work into my no sugar for a month challenge, this should help me stay in check at work. Work is THE WORST place for sugar; there are always cookies and cakes available, and although they offer fruit I never seem to eat… Continue reading Sugar update and pre-thirties doom.
Carrying on with my theme of making tough decisions (my last post was about giving up some of my much loved to shows) I've started looking into giving up sugar, particularly how difficult it would be and thinking about whether I'm up to such a challenge. I already know that this is going to be… Continue reading One Month – No Sugar – Challenge Accepted!
