Tummy control of the industrial kind!!

So yesterday something in my head clicked. I was stood in a fitting room trying on a top so I had something nice and smart for job interviews. The top was great and all was going well.
I took the new top off to get ready to change back and my reflection in the mirror caught my eye.... that isn't me!! That isn't someone I am proud of or find even remotely attractive!

So what is a girl to do when her tummy is making a bid for world domination? The answer.... buy big underwear!!!
Gok Wan would be so proud. I didn't hesitate after paying for my new top I headed straight for the underwear department of Debenhams. I found what I was looking for quite quickly... one of those tummy control jobbies. One of the ones that goes from the bottom of your bra right down to your knickers. I kid you not, it is awesome!!! It is certainly an improvement while I work on getting down to a less rounded shape.

Today I wore it for the first time and it was surprisingly comfortable. It was on all day while I was at work and the only dicey moment was when I went to the ladies and it rolled up a little bit but I was in the right place to sort it out... happy days.

Priorities Changed

Unfortunately my worklife has got in the way and I am now find myself spending most of my spare time searching for a new job... kinda sucky.

I am now hoping to find a job that is closer to home... it will give me more time to jump about at home as well as get to the local gym. Keep your fingers crossed for me as this could be the change I've needed for a while.

So tonight I hit the Nintendo Wii and got Just Dance 2 out again, downloaded a couple of new tracks and relished in the fact I could look like a muppet and noone was there to see it!!!!
My arms do ache a bit now so that has got to be positive right?

Same again tomorrow? You bet your ass!!!!

A small bump in the road

So not that long ago I heard that my contract with my current employer is not going to be extended. This has meant my evenings have been spent updating my CV, trawling the net and checking all the newspapers for jobs.

I have not been as physically actively as I would have liked at all.

Mind you... when I did manage to get a bit of exercise done it didn't go well either. Picture this:
A very cold winters evening in a home which is bitterly cold. One little old me lying on my back (with my feet against the radiator to keep them warm) and doing sit ups.
The floor although carpeted is basically really cold concrete, with no padded mat it hurts my arse and hips so after about 10 sit ups I'm really sore and want to get up.
Here is the problem... my back and neck did not appreciate the cold striking up from the floor and I'm stuck. I cannot get up, I cannot even roll over. But at least my feet are warm

25 minutes pass until finally I manage to get up and painfully lurch my way up the stairs to bed feeling rather dejected.
That was yesterday.... today I have not done sit ups... I'm to chicken!
