She's back... Pt 2

Aaaaaaaaaand here I am again. Two in one day! For those of you who ever try to reach me via text, you'll know what a feat this is.

So I will just pick up right where I left off..

I started my new job in May, at the company owned by The Boy.

I started a role in the Marketing team, writing blogs and tweeting and all sorts of other fun things.

I made a few new friends this year, all of whom are a hell of a lot of fun!

One of my new friends is Champagne.

I told you Champagne was my friend... But you will note from the glasses that I had actual friends as well who like drinking the champagne with me.
The best thing about the fact that I really enjoy drinking champagne? It goes right to my head and I don't need to drink much to have even more fun.

Even when cooking, I stayed on the healthy side of things. I finally cooked a steak for myself which didn't feel like the sole of a boot!
Those vegies did taste as amazingly crisp and yummy as they look, too.

Sometimes I slipped... Everyone has bad days.
Luckily for me, the restaurant that makes this amazing dessert is far enough away from my house that I would have to have a pretty long conversation with myself before I could justify going there and eating it every day like I really really want to.

Friends and family are having babies, which is awesome, because I get to buy really gorgeous gifts for them!

I finally grew my own nails back, which meant I would save a heap in nail technician appointments.. right? Maybe not...

I sometimes started my day with a huge giggle... It's nice when other people are as into being Grammar Nazis as you are.

I took my first trip to Brisbane, which was absolutely gorgeous.

We also travelled to the Gold Coast - again, gorgeous!

So I guess now that you're caught right up to the first week of September, you must be wondering how I've been going with my Jenny Craig?

I went to my first meeting in ... I can't remember, maybe 3 months, today.
I haven't stepped inside the door for ages!

I have to admit, I have been pretty bad. Cocktails, yummy food, naughty food, lots of food, ice-cream, chocolate, champagne, McDonalds, nachos, beer, champagne, and sometimes a few glasses of champagne... I wouldn't have been surprised if they told me I put on weight.

But I have been pretty good, and trying to spend more time outside, as the weather gets better...

You might remember my goal to get 30 kilos off?

I have lost...

34 kgs.


So now I have officially reset my goal with my JC consultant, and made a promise to myself that I will not miss a single week, and that I will blog about it as I go.
I have a number I want to reach now, and the work I've done so far and a whole lot more will get me there...

So jump into the comments section, tell me about what you've been eating, what you've been doing and of course what amazing times you can see ahead.

I want to leave you with some words that really made me smile this week - if you want to share something inspirational, please do!

"...we have a huge suite of problems globally but nothing can be achieved by negativity.’’
