Journey To Weightloss City: Week 1

Ello, ello, ello.... long time no see/hear/speak/read, I know, blame my work schedule, working two jobs really murders your social life/spare time, but thank the good Lord I have today off so I can finally catch up on my blogging...

The title of this post pretty much sums it up, I'm trying to lose weight. I know I'm not crazy overweight or anything but I know I could do with shifting a couple of pounds. It's not purely for the aesthetics, I have really bad eating habits... here's a short list of them

- I eat pretty much everything
- I skip breakfasts 
- My portion control is non-existent 
- I graze/snack constantly throughout the day
- I eat late at night (as in 11pm/12am/1-2am.. yeh I know.. bad right) 
- I binge when I have an unexpected change in emotion... eg. "Hey girl you just won £5 on a scratchcard!" ... "OOOO LEMME BREAK OUT THE CHOCOLATE/CRISPS/BURGERS TO CELEBRATE!!" 
or "Hey guurl, I kinda made a hole in that top you let me borrow, sorry" "Ahhh man, I loved that top, guess I'll have to eat that whole pizza and cake that's sitting in my fridge... the top would have wanted me to" 
- I don't drink enough water

I've got a list of bad lifestyle habits but let me not overload you with my wrong doings 


I'm trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle, I'm not going on any diets because 

Seriously, I don't have time for diets... for me personally they just don't work, and they don't last so I'd rather change my overall lifestyle.. not dramatic changes, realistic ones that can be monitored and stuck to. 

I decided to post this here because I'm hoping by telling lots of people about it, I'll actually be able to stick to it... I'm going to start posting what I ate during the week and what exercises I've been doing (don't worry, I'm not turning this into a diet blog, you'll still get the usual shizniz) 

There will be some before and after shots coming at the end of the month so brace yourselves..... 

If anyone else is doing this sort of healthy eating thing, or has any tips, HOLLA!! 


  1. You HAVE to read "Eat This, Not That". I just got it and I've already lost several pounds. Here's the link, if you're interested :)

    It's amazing!

    1. Ooooo I just had a quick look on the link and this looks like my sort of thing... I think substituting rather than eliminating certain foods is really good for long lasting weight loss... I usually just eliminate EVERYTHING (well not everything obviously or I wouldn't be functioning)... but most stuff anyway, lose the weight and then when I introduce the eliminated foods back into the diet I gain it all back and more!

      Cheers for the link bub, I might try and get my hands on this :-)

  2. lololol this post is so funny!!
    best of luck to you on this journey! i do all of the things you mentioned above hahaha i always look at the dessert menu before ordering anything else.
    share with us any tips you learn along the weigh!

    1. Lolll you're my kind of person then!! I just don't get excited when I go into a restaurant and there's no dessert available... even when I know I'm not going to have any (which is pretty much never) I would like the option to be there.... glad someone feels my pain!
