Although I lost a very dear beloved person on this day 2 years ago, I still try to celebrate the day of love. Not that we go overboard and that we don’t celebrate our love any other day of the year.

And yes – it’s a commercial thing, business, super markets, stores, all the big brands – they all have joined in by advertising Valentines as THE day of showing your love for a significant other. And honestly, I do but my husband a gift on that day… although I know it’s a day like any other day.

But we don’t have to be holier than the pope do we? I’m sure lots of you out there buy your loved ones a gift on Valentines. And that doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t do anything for them the other 355 days of the year!

This morning I came out of the shower and there was a gift bag on the kitchen counter, which I totally ignored the first time I walked by. Once I noticed it and I saw the smile on the hubby his face, I knew it was for me. Some lovely chocolates and a fresh bottle of fragrance of the same type I have been wearing for a while now, but it’s as good as finished now.

It’s these little things that make us feel good, no? Makes me feel good, I know that much.

So… what did you get?

What’s your view on Valentine?

Weight update

Weight update

In my previous post I talked about having a weigh in. Think it’s time to be open about it, and post it here – what’s the point otherwise. If I’m not gonna be honest then this doesn’t make sense…

I have come a long way already. But still some work to do before I reach my goal. The goal being 99kg, getting rid of those three digits… it’s been a harsh road so far.

I know some of you think “omg those 6 kg, if I need to I can loose 1O in a week, I’ll just breathe air and drink some moist”.

I hear ya out there. But not everyone is so lucky when it comes to loosing weight. And besides I wanna get rid of it this time, don’t want to put it back on after 4 weeks. As I said, it’s been a long way so far. And I’ll get there at some point on my own tempo.

First post on here…

First post on here…

What can I say.

It’s 6.15 in the morning and I’m on my way to work. There are better ways to spend a Monday morning. In bed wrapped up in the duvet is one of them!

But here we go again…

Weight myself last night and surprisingly I did not gain as much as I thought I would of. Since November I haven’t been as active as I should be. I barely stepped on the crosstainer, and when it comes to food I can’t say that I was healthy all the time.

So… all by all not to bad.

But now it’s time to get back to it though. If I want that six pack – swimming trousers – packed body then I need to work for it LOL. So back to being healthy, back to being more active, back to portion control…

Had a very nice meal last night, some wok veg, chicken and rice. I actually made enough so I could have the leftovers the day after.

Come on… tell me it looks delicious. Cause I can tell you that it was 😉
