* Weekly update - Post Binge and Nominations *

Firstly I wanted to say a huge thank you to Lex  (please check her out, she has lost an amazing amount of weight) for nominating me for " The Versatile Blogger" award (I'm sorry it has taken me a while to post this but it really does mean a huge deal to me). It keeps me motivated knowing that people read and appreciate my blog. Thank you again!

So rules state that I had to share seven things about myself. And just because I love talking about myself this is pretty easy.
  1. I love holidays! I don't mean the type were you go to Spain. No, I mean Easter, Christmas, Halloween, Bon-fire night etc.
  2. I love anything scary - I love a good old scary movie and I love to read about crimes, mysteries and murders. Gore-tastic!
  3. I work full-time with children and I am also a full-time student of a degree in Special Educational Needs and Inclusive Education. I adore what I do and wouldn't change it for the world.
  4. I hate raw tomatoes with a passion
  5. I'm growing my hair with the intentions to have it cut off and made into a wig for a child who has lost their hair as a result of cancer treatment.
  6. I often get asked if I am of Italian or Mediterranean heritage - As far as I know I'm not. Put will keep you posted on this :)
  7. I have a passion for music and anything Rock n' Roll - I <3 Buddy Holly!
So there are my seven things about me. Now for my nominations...

Now don't get me wrong, I really do read a lot of blogs but my favourites are the ones that I can identify with. I don't want to leave anyone out so I suggest that you check out my "blogs that I follow" bit on my profile. However I did want to do a shout out to a few ladies that keep me motivated and make me laugh when no one else can. For that I thank you.

Moving on to my weekly update...

This weekend has all been about getting back on track. If you read my previous post you will know that I had a binge that lasted four whole days. The first thing I needed to do and my least favourite thing I had to do was weigh-in and find out the damage. So, it shows a gain of 6lb. I know what I have to do to change it, and as Abby said on the Biggest Loser as a reason for wanting to shift the lbs "I was to live and not just exist". I know I can do this.

My goals for next week are:
  • Track every single day - I've pre-tracked everything, setting myself a meal guide for the week. This should help to keep me on track
  • Work-out - I haven't worked-out for a few days due to being in a lot of pain but I can walk now so if it means I walk as my means of exercise I will. There's nothing wrong with that.
Have a great week guys.

  1. Thanks for sharing :)

    And can I just tell you that anytime I see your header with that sweet ride it brings a smile to my face :)

  2. Thanks so much for the nomination! I've actually already done that here : http://runnermum.blogspot.com/2010/05/versatility.html but I really appreciate your comments.

    The thing about growing your hair for a wig is interesting - how did you get into that?

    Hope the week is going well for you.

  3. See my blog - have tagged you back!

  4. I always give and raise money for charities but I thought whilst I did that I could also do something else, like donate my hair. Cancer UK, Locks of Love and the Little Princess Trust all accept hair donations.

    Thanks Liz! xoxo
