If We Were Having Coffee…

Latte

If we were sat having a coffee and a natter I’d tell you about…

Weight Watchers

My Weight Watchers class has unfortunately been closed down and moved. I used to struggle to get there for 7pm when it was close by but they’ve now moved it a 15 minute drive further away and changed the time to 6.30pm so it’s just not feasible anymore for me to go. I struggled to get there before so I have no hope now. However I’m going to change my membership to an online membership so I can still follow the programme. I’ll see how that goes. I actually haven’t lost any weight for a long time. I’ve lost 3 stone now. I haven’t put any weight on I’m just stuck at the 3 stone mark. I’m not getting too hung up on it though. I’m currently feeling fitter than I’ve ever felt. I’ve also gone from a size 24 to a size 16. Although I’m not losing weight, I’m losing size so I’m happy with how things are. I have more to lose but it’ll happen when it’s ready.

Zumba

I’m absolutely loving my Zumba class. Don’t get me wrong, I’m terrible at it! But I don’t care. I dance like no one is watching and absolutely love it. My Zumba instructor is a really lovely lady who gives great instructions and has the right balance of a little chit chat but also gets on with the class too. The first time I went to Zumba, I knew two people there. Now when I go, most weeks I don’t know anyone, but that’s ok. I’m pretty comfortable going in to that situation so it’s all good.

Work

I started at my current work two years ago. I was called in to the office the other day for a “chat” I had no idea what it was about, but much to my surprise, they offered me a promotion! It was very out of the blue but they said they really wanted me in that position so I said Yes! I’m really looking forward to it!

2017 – An update part two

2017 Goals

It’s time to update you all on my 2017 goals. If you want to read my original post where I set the goals, it’s here¬†and if you’d like to read my first update which was published in March, it’s here.

Health

I’m continuing to do well with this. I’m being mindful when making food choices. My new work has a salad bar which is free, or you can eat a hot lunch. I’m making sure I access the salad bar most days only having the hot lunch once a week, or sometimes not at all. This is working out well and I’ve now lost almost two stone.

parkrun

As you know, this is going well. When the 2017 dawned, I’d never completed a parkrun. Now I’ve completed three and I’m loving it. I have improved my time each time going from 58:24 down to 53:27. I hope to keep improving this. I’ve found by completing more parkruns, it’s making me be more mindful of food choices and making want to exercise more in other ways too. If you want to read my posts on parkrun they can be found below:

Read more books

In my last update I wasn’t doing too well with this goal. I had read three books and listened to the Harry Potter audio books. I’ve now got back in to reading and have read 9 books. I’ll probably post a list of what books I’ve read at the end of the year as I don’t plan on reviewing them all.

be me

Again this is going well. I’m only accepting invitations for events I really want to attend. Because I work with a lot of young people, they have a constant desire it seems to be out of the house away from their parents, whereas I actually like being at home. It’s lovely they invite me but sometimes I just prefer to be at home!
