Splish Splash

Went swimming at the beginning of the week! I always forget how much I like swimming until I do it again.

Now I am getting ever closer to moving home, I suddenly realise that I have wasted cheap opportunities to swim. It costs £1.55 to swim where I currently live. (this is after buying a special card for £3.something to get reduced prices-available to students, OAPs etc) The closest swimming place back home is £4.60 to swim! Eep! A big difference to what it costs me at the moment!

Regardless of this realisation, I swam 18 lengths, which is just over a 1/4 mile. Doesn't sound like a lot, but for an unfit girl like me with no arm strength, it's a lot! Let's hope I find a job back home so I can continue to swim ;)

Stayed with my Bessie recently, and she made the most confusing cookies.
They were protein gluten-free cookies. And they tasted GREAT.

The recipe: Click Here!   

very yummy, and low on saturated fats. high on protein, so they are great for an after-gym treat!

Close Friend/Worst Enemy?

Oh heyyy!

I was thinking a lot today about me, and my weight, and how I react to friends trying to help me with this. Friends (and boyfriend) who are intending to help by making comments like 'should you really be eating that?' when I'm contemplating something yummy can sometimes have the opposite effect. Especially if I am feeling naff about myself already, and their comment just highlights it and make me feel worse, then I overeat anyway because I am an emotional eater. Vicious cycle.

Therefore, I humbly request that my friends, family and boyfriend no longer comment about things like this, and allow me to do this my way. I want the weight loss to be my achievement, something I did myself. Granted, not all of my friends make comments like this, and some are great to chat to about weight ETC, but at times I just feel like saying...if I don't ask for your opinion, then please don't comment on my choices. KTHANX.
