Day 46. Happy thoughts & sunshine 🌻☀️

It’s making me cringe that every single TV channel at the moment is speculating what type of birth Meghan Markle is going to have. Leave the girl in peace to have her baby however she wants! Anywayssssss.. it’s almost the weekend!! What’s in store for you this weekend? I hope the sunshine is here to stay! 🌸

Good morning sweets! 🧡 I hope you’re well, I can’t believe we’re half way through another week already. Time is honestly passing us by so quickly. We now have 70 days until our two week holiday to Turkey which is just 10 weeks! My goal is still to lose 3 stone by the time we go on holiday, or as close to 3 stone as I can get. Today we went swimming! We have memberships at a private health spa and used to go all of the time, at least 3/4 times a week, we’ve been slacking lately but definitely going to pick it back up again. Swimming is just an amazing exercise. I’m not confident in the water at all, but it’s amazing how good you feel after swimming. We really want to take an aqua aerobics class at some stage too.

Good morning everyone! How are you all? It’s Saturday morning and the sun is shining, what more could you ask for?! ☀️ We’re catching up with housework and laundry this morning & then going to have a mooch about the shops this afternoon. I can’t wait until it gets warm enough to start eating breakfast and dinner outside and hanging clothes out to dry. The smell of fresh laundry drying in the sun is my favourite.

Quote of the day:

“Why compare yourself with others? No one in the entire universe can do a better job of being you than you”

Today started off by breakfast, whilst listening to some Kehlani. How did you start your day? ✨

Tonight with my cup of tea in bed I’m going to have a little cereal chocolate bar from Tesco, they’re like little bars of heaven and seriously naughty but only 63 calories! We watch an episode of my 600lb life every single night before bed, and I honestly just can’t rate it enough! Best show ever made.

Day 29. Be so good they can’t ignore you.

lifestyle

Good morning lovelies! 🌸✨ How are you today? Are you motivated for a brand new week ahead?! The sun is shining and the skies are blue here this morning which has instantly put me in a good mood! When we were in Windsor yesterday, a lady stopped me to say “you’re hair is fabulous, I’d die for hair like yours” 🥰💕 & it really made my day so I passed the act of kindness on, and told the girl who served me in Superdrug how stunning her make up looked, because it really did! What acts of kindness have you done lately? Sometimes the smallest little comment can really make someone feel good about themselves.
