First official Weigh In & Odds and Sods
Thip picture is utterly pointless...it's just darned funny. It's the look in that cat's eyes...so human.
I thought I'd update you all on my first week back with Slimming World (SW) which has gone well. It's helped me to focus on the good habits I already know and get me back to meal planning and cooking from scratch which is really SO important!
I was really pleased when I hopped onto the scale and I'd lost 3 pounds this week and I can't say I was hungry at all...I just made better choices...WHO KNEW?? Kidding of course...we mostly all know what we SHOULD be doing, but the self discipline to follow it through is where we tend to fall down. I know you can all appreciate how that happens. I have No self-discipline...I usually need a man with a big spiky stick standing over me in order to get my ass into gear.
Also, I have a post in editing which is in response to an award I've received from two lovely blogger's and it's long overdue...which is very rude I know. My excuses are that I've been so busy I seriously struggle to get any blogging time these days, especially in private...I don't like my family reading over my shoulder, especially whilst I'm trying to compose something meaningful and my work blogging time is virtually non-existant.
I've got a bit more time of being overly busy ahead, but I'm hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel for a little while at least quite soon.
Until of course we receive an offer on our house and then it'll all kick up a notch again.
In answer to Barbara's question on my recent post regarding my farm purchase, render is a concrete-like substance that is sometimes put on the exterior of houses over brick or stone and then usually painted. It goes on like plaster and is often used to cover cosmetically unattractive surfaces...we recently had it applied to our house as the brickwork was very chipped and badly done. I imagine you have the same thing in the US but it obviously goes by another name.
Our house has yet to sell, so we've decided to push things along with a price reduction as now that we have the farm we really could do with the money to do the work on it! Fingers crossed that the new price has the right effect.
