Fat to fit…

This is my new motto! Shed the fat and get fit. 

So my fit bit arrived and I love it. My work friends have them so we have little challenges to see who can do better. I am actually getting out and moving. It’s a small start but I am enjoying walking with friends. Plus it helps with my mental health and releases those happy endorphins 😂 and I’m going to get my treadmill out!! 

Small steps to beat the fat! I’m starting to eat right and enjoy cooking more. (As I write this, I forgot I’ve got chicken in the oven… crispy chicken it is). But it’s a start 😂

So the mission is Fat to Fit!!!! 

Fit bit…

In 2013 I invested in a fit bit to track my exercise. (I didn’t exercise….) It was another fad gadget I had to have. It soon ended up in a draw and then lost. I think it’s in my ottoman in my dinning room. 
But recently a few friends in work have gotten them and I thought why not try it out again. (I still don’t exercise… but I’m going too. Honest.) so I downloaded the Fitbit app and set my phone up as my tracker until I locate my Fitbit. 

Well it has become a massive competition to see who can do more steps in a day. We have set challenges in the app and so far, I am 7th out of 10. This challenge lasts Monday to Friday and the person with the most steps wins that week. So watch this space… then we do a weekend warrior challenge. 

It’s my day off work tomorrow and I want a lie in and chill. But no.. the team have decided we are going walking. I’d say no to going and roll over and not even think about it. But I’m 7th!!! I can’t let them speed past me! So I’m getting up early and walking the walk! 

Moral of the story is don’t get a Fitbit. They are addicting!! 

The skinny craze….

Like most people, I want to loose weight. Yes it’s not going to happen sitting on my butt. But… it’s also not going to happen by investing in anything that has the word ‘skinny’ in front of it. Skinny tea and skinny coffee is the new thing at the moment. 

I am not talking from a scientific view… by all means it could make me drop 3 dress sizes just by drinking it…. but it’s the fact that it’s ‘skinny’. Our day in age, we all want to be ‘skinny’. And brands know this so try to use the word to get us to buy their crap. Skinny this and skinny that. How about the word healthy. We all want to be healthy. 

Well here is my big fat caramel latte!!! 


Recording good deeds…

This really annoys me. By all means do a good deed. But why do you have to film it and post it on social media. Flicking through my news feed on Facebook, I see videos of people posting their good deeds and it being shared and going viral. A good deed shouldn’t need to be broadcasted. The feeling of a good deed should be enough instead of seeking glory on the internet. 

That isn’t a good deed. That’s glory seeking and attention seeking. Yes it benefits another person but to make you look amazing to others online. Not to just be a good person. 

I hold doors for people, I help people who drop things, I give money to buskers and the homeless. I do not record myself doing it and post it online. I do this to help people. 

It really annoys me! 

Alice <3

If you can’t tell already, I love Alice in wonderland. So much so that 2 of my 8 tattoos are Alice themed! 

And not forgetting my Alice in wonderland shelf: 

I have much more Alice stuff around my house 🙂 I am a bit obsessed to say the least! 

The uniqueness of it all just grabs me. I find the characters so interesting and perculiar. Alice herself is an odd one for creating these characters in her dream. Wonderland is so upside down it’s just relatable to real life. And most of us are as mad as a hatter or as crazy as the Cheshire Cat! Not to mention as late as the white rabbit! I sometimes even feel like the red queen and want to shout ‘off with their head!!’ On a bad day.  Lewis Carroll’s creation is beautiful and bewildering and to see disney bring it to life in the animation is creative genius. The live action movies were good. It the original classic can never be beaten 🙂 

Drunk drivers!!!

I detest drunk drivers. My mum just got a phone call from my stepdad who is driving on the M6 to go home. A near miss is an understatement!! At the road works it’s 50mph and my stepdad is in cruise control set to 50mph. He notices in his rear view mirror a car coming to him rather fast. Bearing in mind that he is in the middle lane and the fast lane is empty. The car shows no sign of moving over to the fast lane and is still coming. The speeding car must finally notice that there is a car in his path and jerks to the right narrowly missing my stepdads car. He jerks to much and crashes into the central reservation and spins his car out! 

Not only that! The driver tries to take off in his car with a broken axle. Luckily one of the witnesses takes his keys off him… not like he can go far but still. 

I am so thankful that my stepdad wasn’t hurt and that the phone call we got wasn’t one from an officer telling us bad news. 

The driver could hardly walk he was that smashed off his face! What possesses someone to drink and drive and not just drive but get on a motorway and drive!!

Selfish people who have no regard for the safety of others! So many innocent lives are taken everyday by drunk drivers! It makes me so angry! 

 But apart from being a little shaken… my stepdad is ok and the car wasn’t hit. 

I hope the driver suffers and pays for his recklessness!!
