Day 52. Trust the process.

Waking up to sunshine is my most favourite thing. I love spring more than I love summer. Easter time is such a happy, fresh time of year. We have a lovely weekend planned over Easter.. what are your plans? The weather is supposed to be really really warm which is always a bonus! ☀️🌻

Today we are off swimming! Wednesdays are our swimming days, we try to go at least twice a week but always stick to wednesdays regardless. We always feel super relaxed after we’ve been swimming.

I close my eyes at night with a heart so full of love it could burst. That baby face you pull when you switch the fairylights off before brushing your teeth, & how you always kiss me before you leave the room. Do you have any idea how many times I stare at you without you even realising, & ask myself what I did in a past life to deserve this kind of love? You are everything I never knew existed, not really. You’re the ending I always wanted in the movies and you’re the reason why I can finish a book in a day, because I’m so engrossed in the fairytale. It’s so easy to love you. God you don’t know how easy it is.

I might be the writer, but you, you will always be the words my darling.

Day 51. The journey is just as important as the destination.

lifestyle

Hellooooo! We have 3 more sleeps until our weigh in & I’m honestly so excited now. I definitely feel within myself that I’ve lost weight. I have so much more energy and my knees feel more knobbly. Of course I’ll be updating the blog on Friday with our official weigh in results, I’m so thankful we don’t actually have weighing scales in our house otherwise I’d be on them everyday! I feel like boots scales are really accurate anyway so we’re always going to stick with them!

Tazmyn is obsessed with the new westlife song. She knows all the words (so do the entire street with the amount of times she plays it!) My sunbed sessions are going amazingly well. I have tan lines & my back is brown! Only 57 days left until our holiday and I cannot wait! Two weeks in the sunshine with the love of my life. Just us. No distractions.

___________

Lunch – 204 calories ☕️🔗🌻1 litre of water

Dinner – Ditched the minted new potatoes, trying to be as carb free as we can over the next few days before weigh in. Dinner was 229 calories 🌸(obviously just tryna show off these pompom placemats aren’t I?! 🤷🏻‍♀️)

It does no wayyyyy feel like I’ve had such little calories today but I’ll take it! I’m going to have some popcorn tonight. I think it’s amazing how you can get individual little packets of popcorn for under 40 calories per bag. Perfect little snack.

Lots of love sweets,

Day 50. Look for the magic in everyday.

lifestyle

Good morning sweets! 💕 Day 50 already wahhhh! Time really does go by so quickly. We had a super early start to the day this morning, up & having breakfast at 7:30am & getting ready for a day with the in-laws who are coming to visit today. We’re also going to give them their Easter gifts which I’m really looking toward to. I’ll post some photos of what we got them below in this post. I actually came up with the idea of what to get both my mumma & mother in law, as I thought it was a more thoughtful gift opposed to just regular chocolate. I hope they both love it! Keep reading this post to find out what we got them! ✨

Mondays food diary:

Breakfast – 200 Calories 🌸1 litre of water

__________

Lunch – We had lunch in Nando’s today! We chose Nando’s as my inlaws hadn’t ever been before & also because we knew we could be relatively healthy. We both ordered the chicken Caesar salad which is 484 calories. I did get two sides of grilled halloumi & spicy olives so obviously it ended up being more calories but who cares. It was amazing! 🌸1 litre of water

____________

Dinner – Chocolate slimfast Shake – 204 Calories

___________

We had a really lovely day today! My inlaws loved their Easter present. We decided to get my mum and Tazmyns mum a photo frame each this year, & I think they look super cute! For my sister inlaws, we got them an Easter egg each from our favourite place on Earth, M&S of course! 💕__________

We’re going to do face masks & watch 24 hours in police custody tonight! Only 4 sleeps until our official second monthly weigh in! I’m so excited.

Lots of love,

Day 49. Take a moment to appreciate how far you’ve come.

lifestyle

Hello everyone 🌸 I hope you’re all well. Apologies for not posting yesterday, it was kinda a write off. I slept most of the day, after throwing up all of Friday night. I think it’s safe to say red meat doesn’t like me, however much I love it. Sometimes I think I forget I don’t have a gallbladder anymore & my body can’t take as much as it once could. I hate being sick, I get super bad headaches & really emotional. Anyways, today’s a new day & the sun is shining ☀️ We’re off to meal plan in costa & I’m going to have a sunbed too! That’ll sort me right out.

I’m so very thankful for my amazing wife. I couldn’t love her more. We are the strongest we have ever been, the most content we have ever been and happier than we’ve ever been. I am the luckiest girl in the world.
