Getting better ay I!

Tuesday 2nd June 2020 
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.


Focus on what you're doing well, not what you're struggling with.  I'm known for going at things like a bull at a gate and it's a behaviour I'd like to change, so after my initial panic over my mate bringing cake yesterday, I accepted that I'm not going to be a 'perfect' WWer overnight, if ever to be honest.  

This is why I started my day with zero scrambled eggs and some fruit, then amended my basket for my online shop to include healthy fruit.  I knew my two other meals wouldn't be low as they were the last of the "10 meal deal offers I'd had the week before from Waitrose, no room left in freezer and mom didn't want any.  I just can't bring myself to waste food when I'm trying to get my finances under control.  Stupid I know, but hey that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!


Now this Char Siu Pork was absolutely delicious!  It said it served 2, but I obviously need to work on my portions and again that's not happening overnight because I ate it all.  Having said that, it was 16SP and worth it, I had it with roasted cauliflower rice to keep the rest of the meal zero and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 
 
Now if these chips hadn't been use by June 1st, I wouldn't have had them if I'm honest, the good news is I wouldn't buy these ones again either but there's 13SP on that plate with the beans.  Unfortunately mom didn't want the others so I ended up picking at some of the rest too!

I didn't snack in-between meals so that's a bonus, plus I walked for 2 hours (5 miles) with Vicky, plus my yoga which together earned me 12 FitPoints and tracked 100% honestly and I really enjoyed some wine, not drank it because I was stressed by mom.

See the thing is it depends how you look at things, on a negative you could choose to say bloody hell Bev you used 47SP on Day 1, that's a bit rubbish when you're daily allowance is 23, but I choose to see it as, well done Bev, you were accountable to yourself, under no illusion that you'd not eat that food and you're now prepared with lots of healthy food to lower those points today.  Oh and hell yeah you're eating Fruit and have done daily for over a week now, that's awesome - GO YOU! 

Yeah this week, I'm focusing on all the positives like mom being asleep sat next to me right now, rather than the negatives (we won't even write them).  

Dog walk and Yoga already done this morning, I'm ready for my Virtual workshop at 8.30 (Wolverhampton group), then I plan to go and spend some time in my kitchen.   oooo ooo I forgot to say I cooked these too.   4SP in all of them, I made them to use up the leftover cauliflower rice, just mixed them with eggs, dijon mustard and topped with 4SP low fat cathedral city cheese.  

I love those muffin moulds, find em on the www.weightwatchersshop.co.uk wesbite, there's a sale on this week too, don't forget to use my code I7IA5I (capital I's not 1's) if you're ordering .

Right I'm off, need to get ready for work!  Keep doing the best you can xx

Mwah, luv ya

Me dramatic? Not a bit!

Monday 1st June 2020 
Nothing will work unless you do.



I'm sat here amazed this morning, I've got to admit for the first time in a long time the scales have surprised me, I was seriously expecting to gain another 2lb on top of the 2lb I gained last week, but I've only gone and maintained!  That's really made me feel more positive and that I can get back on some kind of track, yesterday I was just saying I should JUST DO IT JUNE, today I actually feel I can do it.  

I was lying in bed this morning, unexcited about the day ahead, yesterday was a difficult one with mom, I try not to think negative before I even start my day but meh, I was thinking that and oh ma'an I gotta start following the plan too lol, but now I've seen I've maintained it's really motivated me to do this, a few more tweaks here and there over the month and it won't be so difficult and I'll enjoy it once I get started, I do like a project after all. 


I'm going to check what shopping I need this morning, it'll mostly be fruit, yes I'm sat here eating satsumas and apples and running out - hah I never run out of fruit, I usually throw it out, that's if I even buy it in the first place!  I can almost say, I'm even starting to enjoy it a little, who knew that was possible.  Might buy the making of the garlic chicken recipe too, after posting it in my group yesterday, it made me fancy it, 

Garlic chicken curry
💙9sp per serving, serves 2
10 minutes prep time, plus marinating. Cook time 20 minutes

Small bunch fresh coriander
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2tsp garam masala
1tbsp mango chutney
2 x 125g skinless chicken breast fillets
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
400g tin chopped tomatoes
100g basmati rice
2 tbsp 0% fat natural Greek yogurt

Cut most of the stalks from the coriander and set the leaves aside. Finely chop the stalks and mix with the garlic, garam masala, chutney and a pinch of salt to form a paste.
Using a sharp knife, cut small slashes in each chicken fillet then flatten them slightly. Spread over the paste and marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (or overnight).
Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan or wok and fry the onion for 5 minutes or until softened. Add the chicken and marinade and turn to coat in the onions. Fry for 6-8 minutes, turning the chicken and stirring regularly. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes. Chop the coriander leaves and stir half of them into the sauce.


Meanwhile cook the rice to pack instructions, and mix the remaining coriander leaves with the yogurt.
Serve the curry with the rice and coriander yogurt.


Nom nom, I know members who've also just thrown it all in the slow cooker and it's worked out.

Okay, what does Just Do It June look like in reality, well for me, it's going to include a lot less wine, not no wine at all but less.  Continuing to drink the water and eat the fruit.  Work at having lower pointed meals and when I buy something that feeds two, freezing or saving the other half for another meal if mom doesn't want any.

It's also about realism and listening to my thoughts, then taking charge of them, again yesterday's virtual workshop set me up for the week, it's all about that and having a bit of a chat with Amy before we got started she pointed out I'd already had those unhelpful thoughts just before going on the workshop and I spiralled over them.  The conversation with my bestie via messenger went something like this; 

V "Plan a 0SP breakfast and possibly lunch as me & Kelly are coming round with goodies Monday."

Now this was where my unhelpful thoughts kicked in immediately, I knew they were planning on coming and bringing cake for mom, I hadn't planned on partaking in any of that as I've decided I'm doing Just Do It June, I can't start off with messing up the first day for fk sake,  now what am I gonna do.  Oh but hold on, it's cake I can live without cake, it's something I am able to resist, I'll be okay.

My reply;

"I don't eat cake anyways"

Oh wait for it, this was V's response and I loved and hated her all at once lol. 

V "Well guess what I know you & haven't bought u cake"

Oh bugga, I love that lady because she knows me so well but now I'm panicking even more because I said I'd start tomorrow and this is going to mess it all up, what am I gonna do, I'm never gonna get back on track, what's the bloody point.  I'm not willing to not meet up with friends for ever so I can lose weight, is any of this worth it. blah blah blah blah and so on and on!  I finally reply; 

"Can it be pointed as I really need to get on track, I can't keep gaining weight."

I got a thumbs up reply over 3 hours later lol, if I know V as well as she knows me, she could tell without me writing that I was being over dramatic, plus she'd gone out so I'll let her off.  But just for the record V, I bloody hate the thumbs up thing on Facebook, it's almost as bad a K on a text message ;0)

There is a great example of unhelpful thoughts, thanks to chatting with Amy, I got a grip, used the techniques we talked about in the virtual and realised I can enjoy whatever V and Kelly have bought me and still get a weight loss, plus getting on the scales this morning has proven I can maintain with having treats so.... Let's just do it in June and stop being dramatic Bev (yeah I'm now talking to myself in a blog, what can I say, I've not had a lot of human contact this last few months!)

Anyways, I leave you there, I've got to sort my shopping and get ready for my walk with V later, here's to Day 1 of June, I'm looking forward to this month and focusing on me. 

Mwah, luv ya

JUST DO IT JUNE!

Sunday 31st May 2020
To succeed we must first believe that we can.



Last day of May, where did that month go ay!  I'm going to enjoy this last day then starting tomorrow, I'm going to do my very best to stay on track and lose some weight.  Yesterday was a really good day with mom, she was good 90% of the day thankfully, it would be amazing if she could be like that for the whole of June but I know that's not likely so I'm going to do what I can.  

I've already had my water and fruit, walked the dog and done my yoga, not bad to say it's only 7.30am on a Sunday morning.  Mornings are best for me, mom's at her best so I can get away with doing more without her sulking, although if he doesn't fall off to sleep it can all go tits up so actually, there is no rhyme or reason to the disease and I can't rely on anything being easy.  But as the quote above says, don't be afraid to start over, and I have more experience with her now and I need to stop using her as an excuse to eat.  I just stumbled across a post from 2018 on Facebook, I'm a stone heavier than I was then, so yep I've gained a stone in two years, but I also gained another stone since 2012, so really I can't keep doing that, 2 stone on in 8 years, mmm, I need to halt that don't I, although on a positive, I've maintained at this weight for 12 months so a tweak a week and hopefully I can turn the tide. 

Oh dear, I'm sitting hear and typing but I can feel me doubting myself!  I don't usually do that, I usually believe I can do it even if I don't do it, but these last few months watching myself lose and gain the same 4lb is making me overthink it!  That's why I'm so glad for the workshop this week, I'm on at 10 with Amy so I'll let her motivate me ready to start tomorrow.  The technique we're covering this week is; 

Take charge of unhelpful thoughts

I think actually putting the workshop together yesterday has made me realise I have been having these unhelpful thoughts myself and that's why I'm sat here with doubts  but I intend to practice what I preach this week and use the techniques I'll be sharing with members on how to respond to those unhelpful thoughts.  

I can do this, I have done it before, I've lived through stressful situations before and handled them and lost weight at the same time so I will do it again.  I've got this! 

Who's with me, who's up for making June the month we get our act together and actually follow the plan properly, there are not magic formulas, no lotions, potions or tablets, you've got to JUST DO IT haven't you and that's what I plan to do (see I went to change that to hope to do because of that doubt, those unhelpful thoughts, I'm going to be paying much more attention to my thoughts this week for sure and start to question them. 

Anyway I need to get a wriggle on if I'm going to be ready for my virtual workshop this morning, I want some breakfast, it'll probably be eggs as I'm trying to get tablets in Alfie, he is not playing the game at all, he spat the same tablet out 4 times yesterday, too bloody clever for his own good! 

mwah, luv ya,

cue - behaviour - the reward

Saturday 30th May 2020
Do one thing every day that makes you happy.
We're talking about turning behaviours into habits using the habit loop in WW virtual workshops this week (I'm on at 9.45 in Wolverhampton group if you haven't been on one yet) and the behaviour I want to turn into a habit is eating fruit, I've just eaten this bowl full - 2 satsumas, 1 pear, 2 small apples, I've decided getting the fruit out of the way first thing is the way forward, before I clean my teeth and also by cutting it up (thanks for the tip on virtual) makes it easier to eat.  
  


I'm a big fan of eating the frog first, it's from a book by Brian Tracey and a training technique WW taught us once.  There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're done with the worst thing you'll have to do all day. In the normal world eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task - but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life. Okay I know eating fruit might not have the greatest positive impact on my life of everything I could do but it's a start, it's the first step on my journey back to taking better care of myself.  If I plan to do things first thing in the morning when I'm at my best, they're more likely to get done.  I've proved this, take the pint of water that I drink every morning now, I've been doing that for a long time now, if we look at that habit look we're talking about in workshops


The cue to drink my water is the glass with the straw, it's always either by the side of my bed or on my desk, initially it lived on my desk, so in a morning when I turned my computer on, I'd see the glass and fill it up with water, I'd agreed with myself I would drink a pint of water before allowing myself a cup of tea.  The behaviour was obviously drinking the water.  The reward was the big mug of tea afterwards.  The long term reward that wasn't so obvious initially is that I'm hydrated.  It's become so much of a habit that I now fill the glass up at night too and take it to bed with me, some nights I drink a pint through the night, I have a sip when I wake up and if I've had a true menopausal hot flush night, I'm thirsty and glad it's there.

Yoga was the last behaviour I decided to start building into a habit, I wanted to make it a regular thing, initially I'd planned a few times a week but I've managed to do it every morning for the past 6 weeks. The cue is my yoga mat on the floor beside my bed, initially I'd roll the mat up because I was doing it in the kitchen or living room but that wasn't helping me make it a habit as it wasn't easy, see the thing is the easier a behaviour is to do, the more likely it is to become a habit (oh that's good or bad habits too remember!). Also the more you do a behaviour, the easier it gets, but no behaviour happens without a cue, so the yoga mat on my bedroom floor is the first thing I tread on when I get out of bed, it's not actually the first thing I do but it reminds me, you're coming back here when you've been to the toilet and sorted mom!  Yoga is obviously the behaviour and the reward for me was at first the satisfaction of knowing I was actually doing something I said I was going to do and sticking to it, also proving to myself if I try I can find the time and a way to do some things that are important to me despite my situation.  Now it's also that the yoga is making me feel flexible again not just in my body but in my mind, it's helping to calm my mood at times and I enjoy it most of the time.

And yeah now to work on the fruit, oh and I don't plan to eat 4 or 5 pieces a day either, I just fancied all that this morning, some days it may just be one apple and that's okay, the important thing is to make it a habit and to try and have a variety.  The cue is having the bowl of fruit on the side in the kitchen by the kettle which I know I'm going to use in a morning (as soon as I've drunk the water!), the behaviour eating it, the reward, well initially because I'm just a big kid really, it's the 'yeah check me out, I'm eating fruit' feeling I get when I've done it, I actually give myself a clap because I'm a little bit proud of myself for doing it, for trying to improve my healthy eating habits.

What habits have you built, or would you like too?  

The thing with bad habits is they are like comfy beds really easy to get into and really hard to get out of and I've realised some of my bad habits are slipping back into place, so I had got to a point where I was having a fruit or vegetable at every meal time, I haven't been bothering with that the last few weeks!  Slipped back into my old ways and it's got to stop!

Now something I heard on a virtual yesterday (I was gutted I had to log out early because mom was kicking off) was 'pick a day and start' and it was like a sign, because I'd only said yesterday on this blog how Monday is the first of the month and I do love a reset on a Monday and with it being the first of June well it's a sign.  Monday June 1st is the day I pick and plan to start.  I've got some treat meals in the fridge that I plan to eat this weekend, it was a meal deal thing and I'm not wasting it.

Oh you will be proud of me though, well I was of myself, another clapping myself moment if I do say so myself.  I'd bought chicken Kievs (11SP each, what was I thinking!) but there's 2 in a pack and mom didn't want one, now usually I'd cook them both, but instead I cut the label off the packet and wrapped it up and managed to squeeze it in the freezer, did the same with the spare muffins so I don't feel I have to eat one a day if I don't fancy one.  Yeah I had a little realisation yesterday that this is what I need to start doing, split the packs and freeze the other half and actually start eating the food in the damn freezer!

I've spent the last few days sorting my finances and if I actually eat the food I've got I could probably pull back the cost of Alfie's vet bill over the month!  I rang Sky yesterday to cancel stuff too, I thought I can live without box sets and movies and our call plan we rarely use the phone mom uses it for emergencies.  Well the chap was brilliant, He saved me £40 a month!  The 02 man called me the day before to try and sell me a new phone but I didn't need one so he actually said well change your call plan cos you're paying to much and he almost halved that for me!  BONUS, it really is worth checking.  The only thing I haven't changed yet is my gas/electric supplier, I've never changed and really dubious to do so, oh and I'm not on a water metre which could possibly save me some money too, but we ain't had any bloody water for two nights anyway lol.  It's really made me appreciate what we do get and think it's worth every penny!  I'm quite frugal with our usage, I do water my hanging baskets but use a watering can, I have taps upstairs on the sink that turn themselves off - that was because mom flooded the bathroom when she forgot to turn them off once.

Anyway, I'm waffling now, I can hear mom moving about downstairs so I'll go make her a cuppa, I can clean my teeth now I've eaten my fruit too.  I've got a busy morning, on virtual workshop from 9.15 - 10.15, then I need to decide whether to do my stock take today and get it done, or do it in the morning, mmm decisions, decisions.....

mwah, luv ya, have a great weekend

Love me xx

Last weekend of May!

Friday 29th May 2020
Making mistakes is better than faking perfections.



Be proud of how hard you are trying.


The week may not have gone as well as you'd hoped or planned, hell the month possibly didn't but it's okay, there's always another day, another week and on Monday another month!  Well what can I say, anyone who knows me knows I love a fresh start on a Monday but a Monday that's also the first of a month, well it's a sign isn't it, what do ya reckon?   And here's a tracking calendar for you to save to your phone to help get you motivated, I think I'm actually going to print a copy out and stick it in the kitchen somewhere and use it to tick off every day I manage to eat a piece of fruit, again anyone who knows me knows fruit isn't my thing, but we've been talking about turning a behaviour into a habit this week on the virtual workshops and eating fruit regularly is the habit I want to work on!


I know I need to get back to it, I've eased off the last week or so and it needs to stop, especially as the lockdown rules are changing and I'll hopefully be getting back to 'outside' work soon, I need to make sure my work clothes still fit me!

Yeah let's make June our turnaround month, I've spent the last few days looking at my finances, so I'll spend the next few days looking at my health, I'm going to have a cheaper, healthier month, shop more sensibly not as if the worlds going to end and I may never get to eat another crispy sweet and sour chicken again! Someone mentioned beans on toast yesterday and I thought mmm I could just eat that, but I couldn't because I've got a fridge full of food that has use by dates, so next week, I won't put that sort of stuff in my shop basket, I'll work on eating what I have and cheaper simple stuff like beans on toast and jacket spuds.  Need to go back to basics, make a list of meals I enjoy. make my healthy eating a priority, eat regularly and healthily!  

Alfie's vet bill set me back a couple hundred, but on a positive, he hasn't go cancer or anything like that, they're not 100% sure what he has, but it could be parasites, he's been given lots of tablets so hopefully they'll kill anything nasty.  

The WW app is getting better every week!  We've got a new yoga zoom class today at 12.30 on the Healthy Body, Healthy Mind connect group, I've already done my yoga this morning but if you haven't go and join Lucy.

If you like a bit of cooking, there's also this, they're making Raspberry & Coconut Slices in the Experiences at Home connect group, another zoom experience.


Ingredients you will need 
130g low-fat spread, plus
extra for greasing
200g plain flour
60g caster sugar
50g porridge oats
40g desiccated coconut
Pinch of salt
250g raspberries

I've had these and they're delicious!  

Anyways, I'm off to walk Alfie, then I'm going to have some time focusing on me and my kitchen, getting ready for June!  

Mwah, luv ya

What is motivating you to be healthy today?

Thursday 28th May 2020 
The struggle is part of the journey.  Everyone goes through it, keep going & don't give up.

There's no right way to 'do' a Pandemic!  We've not had any kind of training for handling lockdown, heck I don't think I'd heard the word pandemic or unprecidented before March!  This Covid-19 has ripped lives apart and completely changed everything.  So if you're struggling with your weight loss journey and feel like you've lost your way a little bit - erm, give yourself a break, are you surprised!  We're thinking questions like, when will I be able to hug my friends and family, will I even have a job at the end of this, at least we've moved on from am I going to be able to buy toilet rolls ever again! 
You might be thinking when are my kids going back to school, do I feel okay about then going to school.  Our brains are running all the time, even when we think they aren't we're subconsciously processing all this stuff. 

Then there's the added pressure of spending your time in lockdown productively!  Erm maybe you don't want, maybe you can barely focus on functioning at the moment with all the thoughts in yours head, let alone thing about doing new stuff.  Yeah it's great to have things you want to do, set goals but if all you can manage right now is the day to day living stuff, that's all right, then that's absolutely fine.

Now I know a lot of my members want to get back on track, having not tracked for weeks but they feel their head just hasn't been in it and they're finding it hard to refocus.  The struggle is real, if it was easy we wouldn't have a weight problem to start with!  So what can we do? 

Well of course I'm a WW coach so I'm going to say start with attending a virtual workshop, but even if I wasn't I'd still say the same, there is nothing more supportive and motivating than being in the company of others who get you with a coach who's there to help you.  

Next get your WW app out, rejoin if you've let your membership lapse, the app is like having your coach in your pocket with all the members too, a workout directory, recipes, tracking, meditation, oh there's so much going on in there right now and there's some great offers going on too.  Remember too opt for workshop and digital (£3.53 a week using the online offer) to be able to access the virtual and also the coach, because not workshop option means no me and I wouldn't want that, I like this job!

Right let's have a little coaching session this morning to refocus you!  Normally I'd say what is your Why?  But instead let me ask you this; 


What is motivating you to be healthy today?

I much prefer this question to the WHY one, because this is about NOW, why did you wake up this morning thinking 'oh I so need to get back on track!' why made you have that thought?

This is a question you could ask yourself every morning when you wake up as you're brushing your teeth, write it on a post-it note and stick it on your bathroom mirror.

Notice over time how the answer to the question will change, on a day to day basis even.  Every morning we need to renew our commitment to our goal because it's far to easy to write our why on a piece of paper the day we join then put it to one side. 

Are you interested in short term fixes or long term changes? 

There isn't a wrong answer here, you might just want to lose the half stone you've gained in lockdown so far, or all this pandemic business may have made you realise you want to be in better health for your future.

Now what's one thing you're feeling good about right now? 

Come on I know you might be struggling with your weight but it's not all bad, what's working well right now in your life?  

Erm I just asked you a question, don't just shrug it off, think about it, I'm not going to give you any suggestions because you'll say to yourself, 'oh yeah, that'll do'.  Really think, there's always good if you look.

Now finally, how much are you willing to work towards being healthy, to achieving those goals ou have in your head.  Are you all in?  Be honest, can you commit to being 100% on it, or are you thinking oh I want to but....

We can all sit here and read my blog and nod, but losing weight takes time, being healthy takes effort, are you willing to do the work, it'll challenge you and won't be a simple journey.  As this image shows, success isn't a straight line! 


Another post-it note question to stick maybe in your fridge would be how much are you willing to work towards being healthy, and don't just read it, answer it!

Now I know we're all having a tough time because of this Covid crap and you might be feeling discouraged, everyone has down times in their lives, we're all just sharing this one!  It's important to be realistic if you truly want to get healthy and ask yourself what do you do when times get tough and you feel discouraged?  Start noticing your behaviours, your patterns, don't stick your head in the sand.  

As Adriene said on my yoga session this morning, where attention goes, energy flows.  Be aware of what's getting your attention! 

Here's to a healthier day 

Mwah, luv ya

Let's be Wednesday wonders shall we?

Wednesday 27th May 2020 
The six best doctors: sunshine, water, rest, air, exercise & diet


Well we've had quite the morning already, mom's had a couple of anxiety attacks, first one I was there, second one I was walking Alfie but thankfully she called my sister and she came round.   Yesterday was a mixed bag too, started off fabulously with a brilliant workshop, enjoyed it so much, then I spent a couple of hours giving moms bedroom a really deep clean, I even hoovered the walls and ceiling, moved the bed, cleaned the windows the lot, my body wasn't happy later but I'm no longer ashamed of her  room lol, yes it needs decorating and a new carpet but at least it's clean now.  After my shopping came and I sorted everyone's shopping out, shopped for 4 people yesterday, it's good to share slots, I had a phone call and the combination of that and me having been upstairs for so long sent mom off on one!  So we had a very uncomfortable few hours but eventually she came round and we had an early night.  

I did finish my latest crochet project and thanks to Angie it was delivered safely and phew, thankfully she liked it as she didn't know what colours etc I'd be using.  

It's really important for me to look back and realise when she is bad, not to think it's the entire day, I'd had a fab morning and for a change I'd enjoyed doing the housework, there's a lot of stuff going on in the world at the moment, so much uncertainty over jobs and what the future is going to look like for all of us.  I'm trying to not think too much about it, I will deal with what's going to happen as it happens, rather than worrying about what I don't know yet.  The main thing is we have our health at the moment and I'll focus on that and trying to improve it as much as I can.  

To do that again today I'm going for a walk at 9 with V, my sister is going to come sit with mom and this isn't only helping my physical health but also my mental health because I'm having some respite from mom. 

My kitchen looks like a bombs been dropped but after doing moms room I only managed to wash up yesterday, hopefully I'll be more inclined later to have a go at it, if not it'll wait until I'm in the mood.  I washed moms curtains yesterday even though it said dry clean only and I was so pleased that they were okay, then a bloody bird pooped on them!  Cheeky beggar, I rarely dry stuff on the line as my house is usually so hot I can use airers so I was a bit miffed!  

I've had my new crochet subscription box delivered its 4 times bigger than usual so I have 8 balls of pastels to decide what to do with, they did supply a pattern but I'm not so keen on that one so I've started something else, I'm still unsure if it's working but I'll keep going for a bit longer before deciding.

Anyway, I need another cuppa, guilty of not having my water yet, mom's turn this morning has thrown me off a bit, but I've done my yoga and walked Alfie, all's good in my world right at this minute.  I'm focusing on one minute at a time, and when those minutes aren't going great I'm reminding myself this time won't last.

Have a great day, I'll see some of you later on the Wolverhampton connect group for the 5.30 virtual workshop, link on WW app. 

Mwah, luv ya 

Love me xx
