Gratitude Shmatitude

So a friend and I have just done an aqua aerobics session. It took an hour and was VERY funny! I have eaten ‘clean’ and done loads of exercise this week and I really am doing the Summer Holidays differently. I have signed up for the Colour Run in September with a candid team of […]

Personal Space…

I felt exposed today.  I have been back on the takeaway wagon this past week and excusing it. My birth’day’ turned into a weekend turned into a week and now I feel as though I have put on some weight. I haven’t done enough exercise and I think I have been taking for granted the […]

It’s a crazy logic

Today I want to talk about self-sabotage. It’s the one thing that drives me INSANE! So….I eat healthily….everything is going well. The food I am eating is delicious and plentiful and feeding my body and my soul – I feel on top of the world. Great! I feel like I can keep this up until […]

“Loneliness is a state of mind”

So… I have struggled with being alone. When I was living with people at University – it rarely worked out. Mainly because I think I was such a different person when I got home. When I got home I just wanted to be on my own. I wasn’t really the enthusiastic little puppy dog that […]

The Elephant in the Room

Whoa! OK – this is an exposing one. I want children. There I said it – Kind of out loud. I don’t feel ready or anywhere near old enough but my body clock is ticking. My body is a well maintained and guarded armour so the thought of letting someone close terrifies me. BUT I […]

Charlotte in the middle

One of the biggest things I have struggled with as I have been actively trying to lose weight is correcting my thinking. I always used to think of myself as some kind of failed perfectionist. I had a need in me for everything to be perfect. You would never know though because as soon as […]

fat Fat FAT FAT! (shh! naughty word)

So….in order to get me 3 1/2 stone lighter I have been following the Slimming World program. Basically there are foods that are completely unlimited such as pasta, eggs, all lean meat, rice and grains etc….. Basically the premise is that it is designed to be a very low fat, low sugar diet. This has […]

“Better to try and fail than not to try at all”

So.. June 2016 and the Journey continues…I have decided to rekindle my blog as yet again I am making another attempt at changing my life for the better – there are lots of different things about it this time. I had some Hypnotherapy – this really helped. I realised how guarded I was and it […]

Something to ponder on….

I had to share a section of this book I have with you. It is for anyone going through some kind of transition in their life and trying to change things. It is from a book called “One Minute Mindfulness” by Simon Parke. Now don’t get me wrong I am (or should I say used […]

Live life without permission…

  This is something I have been working so hard on…. I always seek control on my life in some kind of extrinsic manor and I think that the need to eat probably stems from some need to bring back the power and the control. I have it built intrinsically that others opinions are more […]
