Life is full of ups and downs and at the moment lots of ups!!


Job is going well - full time now, no longer an apprentice.

Driving is going well - getting more confident as time goes by, just drove to Cardiff for our holiday travel airport. (Dale drove us home when we got back).

Yay we had a holiday!! - 7 days in Olu Deniz Turkey - bliss, 40c +  most days, Phew!!

BAD UP - Weight cannot get it under control. But trying to start again today for the umpteenth time. I have now 3 stone to lose to get me back to goal (LOL! who ate all the pies, biscuits, crisps, bread and pastries).


Exercise is not going well, need to get a plan and start again.

BAD DOWN coming home from holiday, we learnt that my husbands cousin has passed away - Quite young and no reason is known yet - Thoughts go to Aunt Jean and family. So sad.

Days off are few and far.

*SIGH - of relaxation and happiness.

I am enjoying a day off today, our ward was short staffed on Tuesday and I ended up doing a very long split shift day. 7am - 1pm and then 4pm - 11pm. 

I feel as if I was only asked to do this as I recently............... 

Oh my forgot to post the news on my blog, I posted on Facebook but not here. LOL!!! 


Fear, dread, excitement and freedom all rolled into one.
Something I always said I would Never Ever do, my feelings of fear and anxiety were that strong about it.

Just goes to show everything can be overcome - although I had a little help from Bachs Rescue Me Herbal Remedy - courtesy of my driving instructor.

Any hoo, getting back to everything else, work at the hospital continues to be something I am happy to be working within. Although, no set shift pattern is a bummer, finding out every 6 weeks your new rota and its a mixture of earlies, lates, long days, twilights and nights can be exhausting especially if you only get 1 day off every few shifts.

 I am still maintaining weight - looking at this positively, its not going up any further, I still struggle to manage, diet, exercise, work and life balance.
I have a really good couple of weeks then a couple of really bad lazy ass ones. 

However I have got myself a 12 week journal, started Tuesday and aim to be as good as I can and not put too much pressure on (my down fall), just aim for 10,000 steps and try to do some form of exercise for 30 mins 3x a week. I really want to get back to a running club too, but my belief in going back to my old club wains as soon as I look at the routes on their website, Hills, hills and more bloody hills.  Such a running wuss.

So today brings, food shopping, baking, gym (I hope) and a drive on some new to me routes to get me used to driving not just to and fro work xxxx

Started the day with a banana and a black coffee.

Dale had to go pick up a prescription and then we had to go and get some muller lights - cannot run out I need one of these in my day.

Then home for lunch


 Love Crayfish tails, all syn free bar 1tbsp of light salad cream (1Syn) and a healthy extra B for the roll.

Then after lunch a nice C25k run ensued, WK6 RUN 3 = 25 minutes constant running. 2.21 Miles.

Then because its my day off and I had a massive moment of madness, I booked myself into a zumba class at the gym for 6pm till 6.45pm and then I ran the mile home.

Evening meal was  Pasta and slimming world meatballs in homemade tomato,onion and mushroom sauce.

snacks at bedtime space raiders crisp 13g bag and slimming world bar, 3 syns each.

Finished the day on over 18,500 steps taken (includes the runs totaling 3.37 miles ) and 45 minutes of Zumba.

Shower and Bed now to relax with a book before 5am wake up tomorrow for work x
