When I started this blog it was a diary really, a way to remember the journey of starting up a business with a young family, the good times and bad times. As different aspects of life become more important, so my posts would reflect that, be it the business, home, family, me! dots and spots was always the main focus in the beginning as it took over so much of everything that I did but as dots and spots has settled into more of a routine over the past 6 years, I guess more posts about me in general have come to the fore. This may not be of as much interest to you as the business was in the beginning but there are only so many posts you can now share about picking and packing orders. I must also remember that this blog was initially for me, and anyone who wanted to share my journey along the way was a happy bonus.
One aspect that is quite important to me is my battle with my pounds and I guess is quite a big part of 'me' at the moment. I find great inspiration from Pinterest and wonderful support from Instagram and the comments left on here when I do post about it. There have been comments about sharing the odd recipe etc over on Instagram as a result of some of the photo's I share and this would be the obvious place to do so, as you can write so much more. As Friday is my weigh in day, I thought I'd maybe post regularly on a Friday about my Slimming World journey, the odd recipe etc. If it's not your cup of tea, ignore my Friday post!
Today was fabulous, not only is it my Birthday, I lost 2.5lbs, achieved my 1 1/2 stone Award and got Slimmer of the Week! That's 22.5lbs off in 9 weeks - the best Birthday pressie ever. I could have done without the whole group singing Happy Birthday but hey, I came out feeling pretty chuffed. I'm not getting any younger and at 44! I guess you realise how important your health is as the years creep on. My aim is to reach the top end of my healthy BMI and by following this plan, I'm hopeful I might just do it this time.
Have a great weekend - I'm taking the weekend off and am going to Bath tomorrow, making a start on the Christmas shopping - there will be a BIRTHDAY DISCOUNT CODE coming next week, the last big one before Christmas, so look out for that at the beginning of next week
