You know when life is just going right? It very rarely happens that all aspects of your life are in harmony. But for me it’s happening today. Well really all this weekend was brilliant.
My sisters and I celebrated Mothers Day by taking Mum out to Little and Friday for lunch. Mum’s a keen fan on anything rustic and country-kitchen so she absolutely loved it. We drank coffee, ate brioche and cream filled donuts, and laughed at all that’s happening in each others’ lives. Then we squeezed in a spot of shopping, where we bullied my youngest sister into writing her number on a receipt for a flirty salesman.
Other than a lovely day with my Mum and sisters, I spent the weekend dining with friends, drinking with friends, shopping, getting my hair done (no more greys!!!!) and getting my nails polished. All around bliss.
I was also quite surprised, as even though I gorged myself on the above pictured donut (drool worthy!!) I managed to get my ass into a pair of skinny jeans that I bought at Easter! This morning I weighed myself, as I do every Monday morning, and I’m the lightest I’ve been in as long as I can remember. You know when you’re on that weight loss high and all you want to do is keep eating healthy and exercise? I’m there.
I’m halfway through Six Weeks to OMG, and while people have criticized it I can see how parts of it work and make sense. I’ve started the skipping breakfast plan. I know, I know, people are going to tell me it’s bad, don’t do it. But I am. It’s working. Instead of feeding my body, it is forced to dive into it’s already pre-stocked refrigerator – my ass. Then at lunch it’s back to normal and I munch down on a tuna/chicken salad and fruit. Of course, I don’t want anyone to take from my blog that I’m telling you skipping breakfast will make you lose weight. No. I suggest you read the book if you want to know more.
My tummy is starting to grumble now, time for a long, black coffee. It’s also kind of achy. Too much planking during ad breaks last night.
