Meet Harry

Hello brave blog followers!

In August 2009 I got my tortoise, he is a horsfield tortoise and is called Harry, short for Haribo!

Here is a pic...

Diet and fitness wise, well I am still 8 stone 12 :( but I am being a LOT LOT more strict with myself and am exercising every day. Hopefully next week I will have some positive news.... please please pretty please.

What an idiot!!!

Yes, I am referring to myself, I am a complete an utter idiot. I maintained again this week, despite sticking to my calories and doing 4 half hour sessions of exercise. So as you may expect I was really really really disappointed and upset. Anyway, today I had a look on the side of my favourite drink......

no not wine.....

Tesco High Juice blackcurrant squash, it might as well be wine, at least I would enjoy all those calories I was consuming. So on top of my calories I have eaten I have also drank around 450 Cal's a day in juice..

At least I know now, size 8 here I come.... :)

Crapping my pants


Well Tuesday 9 am marks the time and date of the my second year PhD viva. Monday sees me with my head buried in my books and trying to convince myself that, yes I know what I am doing, and yes, it is important. Am I convincing you yet??

I guess feeling nauseous helps with the diet? :D

On a lighter note, how the hell did those twins make it onto next weeks show. :rolleyes:

Hope everyone had a fabulouso weekend, I know I did. hehe x x

Tick to'ck, tick to'ck...............

The big 30 is looming .... arrrrgggghhhh.


Well after a severe period of absence I have decided to return to my blog spot and resurrect this bad boy. The motivation? Well it's only 52 days till my birthday and I am determined to have shifted at least half a stone by then. This means I am going to have to get tough on my ass and take this thing seriously.

So, I have finally started using weight loss resources properly and am logging all my food and exercise. The only negative thing is, I have been ILL!! Dom, dom, dom!!!!! Which means the exercise has been on hold. I am however, doing fairly well on the food front. I have started their Christmas challenge, which is a great motivational tool. Who knows, I may even be able to stick to this!

Anyway, enough about the diet, how fricken funny was 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' last night? I know it's trash TV but I love it. Tables were flying, ladies were screaming, the claws were out. I was really hoping for some wrestling but sadly no. :)

Wedding plans? Don't even go there, anyone have suggestions for a work shy H2B?? I think I need a rocket.

Now, down to business;

Weight - 8 st 11 (yes I am in the 8 st category, but at the wrong end!)
Height - 5ft 2 (surprisingly this doesn't change)

I will take some measurement this evening and post later.

TTFN, Claire x x x
