Want it? Go for it!

23rd August 2017
What you want exists, don’t settle until you get it.
Mid-week already, another month almost done, it just shows how fast time goes and so it’s important to make the most of each and every day.   Yesterday’s meetings were full of success, lots of weight loss and a handful of certificates given out, we all spent a bit of time planning our next milestone, which direction we’re heading in is obvious but it’s good to have a timeline or a small goal to aim towards.

I’m enjoying being able to cook, even though I did have a Weight Watchers microwave meal for lunch yesterday, chicken curry for 9sp, I’ll be filling my freezer with a few of these meals for convenience, they do the job and save me time when I’m engrossed in my work at lunchtime.  They ensure I actually do eat.  For dinner I had a tuna, sweetcorn and cheese melt usually WW wraps that were out of date but they tasted just fine after being on the George Foreman for a bit.   Breakfast had been egg and mushrooms on toast, I hadn’t got time to make it which is why I did, I have to eat and as a member said at the meeting, ‘practice what you preach’, she said it from a place of love, she wanted to ensure I was taking care of me and prioritising myself as I was telling them too and I can honestly say I do take care of me.   I’ve always looked after my health and happiness, it’s a priority, I can’t take care of anyone else if I’m not taking care of myself. 

Lately I’ve realised I was a little stuck which is why I made a change, this new Mentor Champ role has given me a fresh challenge, I’m truly passionate about Weight Watchers and if I can do even more in a different capacity to help improve our area then that satisfies me.  I love to help others and now I’m helping my colleagues even more in an official capacity.  I love it!  Over the years I’ve watched some of my members become coaches and that’s very rewarding, seeing one get her Diamond award for the first time was incredible.  One of my members has just become a coach, she did her final assessment and already has her own meeting and another one is going through training, makes me very proud.  It really is one big family and I love being a part of it.  If you’ve ever thought about sharing your passion for Weight Watchers and being paid to do so, check out the jobs page https://www.weightwatchers.com/uk/about-us/careers/become-leader feel free to ask me questions and if you do apply remember to put my name in the referrer’s box or your coaches if you’re not one of mine (brownie points for me and I won’t lie a little bonus too).

4am start this morning, it seems to be my natural wake up time, 6 hours sleep seems to be enough lately, I’m not tired so I’m embracing the extra hours, I’ve even started washing up as I wait for that first kettle to boil (what is happening to me!).  Seriously though I’m trying to get routine into my life, I know it’s going to be a little (lot) crazy over the next month once they start the wetroom but after that, I want organisation and routine, it always makes me smile when I acknowledge my work life is always completely organised, I can find anything on my computer, I never miss anything, my personal life is a bit messy to say the least but in a good, happy way, I’m just not in a rush to sweep that kitchen floor, or wipe that side off, although when I get my posh new worktops, I’ll have to be wiping them off regularly because wood stains!

Here’s to a wickedly, wonderful Wednesday, 5.15am and I’m ready for another cuppa.  Make today count BeYOUtiful, you know it makes sense, slap a smile on your face and embrace your day. 

We got this!

Let's get this day started!

22nd August 2017
No one is you and that is your superpower!
Up with the alarm at 5 this morning so no chance of being interrupted by phone calls, safe to write my blog in peace.  I had a great day yesterday, new challenges, a busy day, before I knew it the day has flown past.  For the first time in a long time I have a paper diary, I know I have my phone but it’s not the same at all.  I’m liking this change, sometimes we get to comfortable.

Of course I made time for eating, enjoyed some vegetables at last too, thankful of my cooker again.  Egg and beans on toast for breakfast, chicken, peppers and onion wraps for lunch and for my tea I had steak and salad and YES I gave the fat to Alfie, oh yeah I did, check me out.  The beauty of being busy is you don’t get bored and eat for the sake of it.

Oh I spoke too soon, moms just got up so I’ll have to stop to make a cuppa and get her medication.

I’m back, did I mention I woke up to 45 Facebook notifications and 23 Watsapp ones, the facebook was low to be honest, I’m used to them which is why I don’t have any sent to my phone, if I want to know what’s going on in Facebook, I have to open the app up.  Watsapp on the other hand is new to me, I’ve always had it but never really used it much, it turns out, I will be now. 

I’ve never spent so much time on the phone as I did yesterday, I had one call after the next, not all work related, there was a call from my bestie and one from my brother.  I know people say that phones aren’t great but I love mine, it keeps me in touch with people are so far away, I’d only get to write to them and friends who are so busy we would only get to see each other now and again.  You can’t beat personal contact I agree, but a chat on the phone is the next best thing, followed by texts and Facebook.  Communication, it’s so important.

Did I mention vegetables yet, my how I’ve missed them, it wasn’t until I actually tasted some I remembered how much, my new fridge/freezer should be hear by the end of the month so I can fill it up with lots of freshness, I can’t wait.  I’m so excited for it all to be finished.   Only 3 weeks until they start the wetroom, that will just be amazing when it’s done.  I’m going to continue to empty that room this weekend, there aren’t enough cupboards in my kitchen yet to take all of it, but it can be boxed up if necessary. 

Oh it’s only 3 weeks, I need to start emptying my alley so they can get up and down it.  Guess how I’m going to be spending this bank holiday weekend!

But before the weekend, I have 12 meetings to go and run, an Area Manager and colleagues to support, a mom to love, a belly to feed and a life to live – it’s really good, I like it!  What have you got to do before the weekend?

Let’s focus on the good BeYOUtiful, it’s too easy to get tied up in the negative and it’s not a nice place to spend time.   Have a great day…

It wasn't worth waiting for!

21st August 2017
Don’t believe everything you think.

Well I’ve had a cracking good night sleep after six when I woke, my blogs late because since then I’ve been making tea, sorting mom and chatting on the phone to different people, where did those two hours go!

I’ve maintained again this week on the scales, I’ll take that, I must confess to eating an entire tiger loaf yesterday – yes I did, cheese on toast for breakfast, then couldn’t be bothered to cook so lived on bread and spread for the rest of the day.  Healthy – erm not!  Veggies on my dinner today, got me a steak, so maybe a No Count day today.

Mom and me have agreed we’re going to have a really good week this week, we both want to lose a few pounds, I’m under that stone and I want to stay there, I had said I wanted to lose a stone for my next area meeting, I even stuck it on my office wall as a reminder, I’d forgot it was there until a colleague came round last week to see me and pointed it out, I was like “oh yeah, and that’s there!”  I’ve lost 6lb and I have 3 ½ weeks to lose a bit more, so even if I don’t make the stone, I’ll be lighter than I was at the last one. 

I’ve woke up ready for my week, refreshed and ready to get stuff done!

And now I’m on the phone again!

I’m not meant to blog today I don’t think, so I’m gonna sign off and hope you have a good day.

I have a long, long to do list that needs starting.  He’s still on the phone here!
