My reasons to be happy

Although the summer holiday is over and we have returned to the routine of school and work, I'm still happy knowing that the Mini Mes had a great break. We did so much and I have some lovely memories from the past 6 and a half weeks (you can see what we got up to here).

Since having Minxy 8 and a half years ago (is it really that long?!!) my eating and exercise habits have been awful. I'm a complete yo-yo dieter which is definitely not a good thing. Since Monday I've been using a meal replacement plan and although the first day I had such a bad headache and felt a little hungry I am feeling better for it now. I'm hoping a few weeks on the plan will give me the boost I need to keep healthy eating going until I finally reach my goal weight. I'm staying focused and positive.


Although it's now September the weather already seems to be so much better that July and August! I've woken to the sun glaring through my window daily and I love it! We even got to enjoy the beach last week. It really does make you feel better about getting out of your duvet each day.

Autumn is possibly my favourite season. I love how beautiful the crisp leaves look on the trees and the fun you can have playing in them. There is of course Halloween on the horizon too - I do love dress up so having something to look forward to cheers me up dramatically!


What has made you smile this week?

  6. Good luck! I'm always a bit wary of meal replacement plans - I never know what to make of them.
