Lets get physical

I am under no illusions... My biggest problem is not what I eat. It is the limited amount of exercise I squeeze into my days.
Time to start kicking my own ass about getting more active and sticking with it!
Starting off gently and using the sweat program on Just Dance. I swear the Nintendo Wii will be my Savior!
I'm finding it easy to meet the daily targets... Well... For the first few days at any rate. The trouble is that something always happens which I view as a justified reason to miss a day. The next thing I know, a week has passed and I've done sweet F. A.!


So here I am with my thumb well and truly pulled out... every night is officially Wii night!!!

Here are my favourite tracks for looking like a tit but burning a bit of blubber off:
Proud Mary - Ike & Tina Turner
Call Me - Blondie
It's Raining Men - The Weather Girls
Cosmic Girl - Jamiroquai

You tube Proud Mary Link (Not My Video)

The last goodbye

I wouldn't say I have ever overindulged in cream cakes but I have always had a soft spot for them. Eclairs and Profiteroles being my favourite.

This weekend a friend came to visit and treated us to both my favourites after our evening meal on Saturday night... A box of 4 Eclairs and a pile of Profiteroles. This got me thinking and I recalled how I once ate a whole pile of the yummy chocolatey goodness all on my own (ok, ok... I overindulged once!!)

I wasn't planning on this treat being "the last" but it certainly seems to have happened this way. As I took my first bite I was in heaven but by the second bite I was already changing my mind. Sure the cream was fresh and yes the chocolate was perfect but it just wasnt ticking any boxes for me.
The sudden realisation came... "HOLY CRAP!! I'M NOT ENJOYING THEM"
Now this was an unexpected shock to the system but the more I think about it, the happier I am. It's certainly going to be easier to avoid such treats in the future when I have this in my memory!

Now where's my natural yoghurt and sliced banana?

The great underwear purge

Almost sounds like a film title doesn't it?
Well I suppose there were some laughter and some tears. There was even a will she or won't she moment.... Hmmmm.... Maybe I should go speak to Spielberg!!
Anywho... The key to looking good is to have a great wardrobe. Mine, unfortunately, is one of those cheap canvas flat-pack jobbies from Argos so I better just concentrate on the clothes.
As you have discovered already, I have invested in some new underwear so this is obviously the prime time to clear old some of the old stuff.
Us women always seem to hoard our underwear and find it hard to let go.
I have old faithfuls... You know the score, knickers which are oh so comfy but verge on being granny pants and certainly aren't fit to be seen on the washing line. I also have a few bras which are elderly; they actually seem to make my boobs saggier than if I didn't wear a bra at all and the pretty lacey material is faded and can only dream of its former glory.
Why do we keep these pitiful garments?! I mean, really!!??!!
So there I was sat amongst a sea of lace and underwiring... Forcing myself to make that painful decision. Sooner or later we all have to let go I suppose... It was for the best.

A positive step

So I started today with a lie in which was not planned but I have now decided it was intentional afterall and shall hence be called "beauty sleep"

Beauty however doesn't happen overnight and does need a bit of help so time to face the time old proplem of the top lip. Lets face it, all women get a little hair on their top lip... If they didn't then Immac never would have been invented.
Mine never seems to be too bad but during the winter the hairs I do have are a little darker and very tiresome so it was definately time to lock myself in the bathroom for 10-15 minutes while concentrating on the task at hand.

One bald top lip and a hot shower later and I'm ready to face the world.
A few days ago I treated myself to some new underwear so on went the new bra and panties. They aren't a colour I'd normally chose (being bright pink) but the fiance picked them out and it feels good wearing them because of it.
I've delibrately chosen to wear a low cut black strappy top for two reasons:
1- So the bra straps are on display and show up nicely
2- So my enormous boobs and cracking cleavage are there to make me smile as they are my favourite asset (and probably the fiances too)

So why go to all this trouble? Simple really! I'd never feel motivated to improve if I felt like crap about myself. Now I'm ready to jump and run a round like a loon cos damn it! I'm worth it!
(No jumping around in this bra though or I'll get two black eyes!!!)

A new start

Ok, ok... I know this may just seem like another New Years resolution blog but it isn't. It is something I have wanted to do for a while now but it just so happens that New Years Day is the first chance I have had to sit quietly and plan this all out.

So here I am sat here typing away about future plans with the hopes that this time next year I will be wearing some super-hot outfits and have a small portfolio of gorgeous pictures where I don't look like a seal in drag.

Throughout the year I will be posting the lengths I am going to, all the antics and outfit blunders along the way. Here I hope you can find inspiration if you are looking for it or just have a giggle at yours truly.
It's going to be a bumpy old ride but fingers crossed it'll be worth it.
