4th March 2017
Life is like a cup of tea, it's all in how you make it.
It's only here, Tea Party day or cake day as it's been renamed :) I'm planning to have cake for breakfast and lunch today, quite possibly dinner too, it's all for a good cause - my belly, seriously though it's for Dementia who are passionate about helping families who are living with dementia, and they do this through their brilliant Admiral Nurses, who are specialist registered nurses. Time for a Cuppa 2017 will raise vital money to help us to fund more Admiral Nurses to support families in local communities and to run the helpline, which is open seven days a week and is for anyone with questions or concerns about dementia.
Now for the good stuff, there has been so much baked, I know the best brownies in the world will be there (thank you Romana), Creme Egg brownies which I need to try, I was also handed a salted caramel cake from Essington Tea Rooms last night, how delicious will that be! There will be a few Smart Pointable cakes too, the Dorset Pear cake is delicious, then there weetabix cake, that's nice too. Thank heavens for Weight Watchers 80/20 rule. I do hope we raise lots of money for this great charity whilst having a good catch up and get together.
There's not much else going on in my head this morning, yesterday was similar, trying to remember everything, co-ordinate it all, make sure everything's coming together. If we didn't do that, it'd all fall apart and we wouldn't have a successful event.
Weight loss success works in the same way! We've talked about that chain of events that leads to success at the scales this week from leaving the meeting on weigh day to stepping back on those scales the week after. Winging it won't help you to get the losses you hope for, doing a bit of planning, writing a shopping list, tracking etc will however help you get those results you want. I plan to have one of those weeks next week, starting tomorrow with the planning and shopping, yep I've been a bit lapse this week, but back to it next. That's the reality of life isn't it, it's not always going to be easy going, you're not always going to want to be on track and that's okay.
My brains not focused on blogging this morning, I'm just thinking about this tea party and getting it all right and in my car, so I'm gonna leave it here and hope that I see a lot of you this morning at United Reform Church Old Fallings Lane, Wolverhampton WV10 8BH Saturday 9.00am. Can't make today, you could text us a little donation instead text DRYF47 £1 to 70070 (change amount to anything) or donate online at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/timeforacuppa let's make this one amazingly, successful event.
Can't wait to tell you all the total raised in tomorrows blog!
Here's to a great day, followed by a healthy week, don't forget if you've not made a meeting this week, you can get weighed this morning when you come for tea and cake :)
