|My first giant cupcake - chocolate with chocolate fudge filling. Wanted it to look like a cupcake. Piping was okay but have weak wrists!|
I have not attempted another 'run' due to weather conditions. It has been raining a lot in the UK. I am not a hard core runner. I am a very amateur reluctant jogger so weather does stop play for me. That being said I am going to attempt to 'run' around the block tomorrow maybe twice if I'm feeling adventurous.
Food wise its been hit and miss. I need to write the food down. It keeps me on track and focused as does writing blog posts. I accept that realistically no one is going to write down what they eat on a day to day basis but for the purposes of losing weight its essential. A pain but an essential pain. When I write my food diary properly I lose weight in that week. I feel I've wasted a week, no, I have wasted a week. I doubt I'll lose on Monday.
|My 48 year old rebel husbands idea of 'patriotic!"|
On to other matters. We had an invitation to a 50th today. That's what happens when you marry someone 10 years older - you get lots of invites to 50/60th parties! Anyhow its fancy dress. God I hate fancy dress. Dressing up is for children not for adults. Here's a thought - throw a party and ask people to wear what's in their wardrobe. I was planning on wearing a floaty summer dress I wore to my sisters wedding back in 2005. Its only had a couple of outings as normally I get pregnant, get fat and I can't get into it. The theme will be based on the Jubilee and being patriotic. Being the 48 year old rebel that is my husband he wants to go as a punk wearing the 'God save the Queen' (by The Sex Pistols) T-shirt. I suppose I should go as one too - would look a bit daft if I go dressed as queen or something. Still, least it saves the hassle of having to fit into a dress. He did seem to think I'd get into a Union Flag dress much like Geri Halliwell wore at the Brit awards. Pah ha ha is all I have to say about that.
Have a great weekend!
