What is wrong with me…?

Many times I ask myself this question, along with others that put myself down. I find myself thinking I’m not good enough, pretty enough, funny enough or even tolerable. Well this needs to stop. There is nothing wrong with me. It’s you! I allow other peoples opinions and judgements to effect me. But I shouldn’t. There is nothing wrong with me. I am reliable, honest, kind, genuine and a good person. I put others before myself even when they don’t deserve it. I see the good in people even when they have hurt me. I will always be there for people and try my hardest to pick them up when they are down. So.. what is wrong with you? I’m awesome! 


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 🙂
