Going Slowly…

General Chit Chat

Hi everyone; I’ve not posted for a while because well I’m feeling a bit down about the whole “Finding my inner girl” thing. The diet & fitness is doing great, I’ve been doing 40 minutes aerobics 3 times a week and I feel so MUCH better and I have been eating really well too so there is no problem there! I’m going to continue doing aerobics 3x per week for a month and then I’m going to up it to 5x – currently I am doing it when little man has his afternoon nap but I am losing valuable “me” time (me time = cleaning/working time) that way so as soon as I up it to 5x I’m going to get up and do it at 6am every morning and that way it won’t eat into that time!

The only thing that is getting me down is clothes really! I’ve been shopping around online and have nipped to a few shops but I have found nothing that I like! I was really excited about starting this but almost two weeks in and I have NOTHING new and girlie to wear! I’d love to go to Debenhams again for the personal shopper service but I don’t want to spend lots of money on clothes while I am losing weight! I just don’t know what to do! I need someone to help me and take me out shopping without the kids and tell me what looks good because I just feel like a completely useless! Seriously send me shopping for bags, shoes or for the kids and I could spend thousands easily but for clothes for myself!!!! Grrr!

I love these shoes!!!!! I must have them ;O)

Enzo Angiolini pumps

In other news… I got contact lenses!! I have wore glasses for 20 years but decided it was time for a new me; I absolutely love them! it is so amazing to be able to see without wearing glasses!!

My nails are also perfectly French manicured so that’s good!!!

Just need help in the clothes department!! *Sigh*

    I LOVE these shoes. I pinned them on Pinterest the other day in fact. Hope you’ve had a bit more luck shopping.

    I like a bit of H&M myself. Fun fashion but not too expensive. The shop can be tricky and messy so try the online catalogue. I hope you find a few things, it can be very disheartening when the shops are full of a particular fashion and you know it just won’t suit you. x

      I do like H&M and shop online for the kids but the delivery is always sooooooooooo slow! I always think if it doesn’t come soon they’ll be needing the next size up!

    It’s always the way, when you really want to find thing, you just can’t. Maybe try again next month.
    Yay for contacts! So pleased you are getting on with them, can’t wait to see what you look like with them. It feels so bizarre at first! Oh I really need to sort my nails out, must take your direction and have mine done. Keep going Sonia 🙂 xxx

      Thanks honey – I’ll have to have a proper day out shopping to myself soon – just can’t get anything done with the kids around 😉

      Love having nice nails xx

    I love love love shopping, but no longer do it for me, as there is no where for fat girls, I am so angry you live so far away I would take you shopping in a heartbeat, I am going to make it my mission to get to you for a ladies day.
    You keep exercising and when I get up to you we will be buying you a dress size smaller.

    ps yes please to the shoes xx
