Mid May, you have got to be kidding me?

Seriously, where has the time gone? Wow!

Today’s been a really good day. This week has really. Back riding and looks like I’m going to be learning to canter soon. Also learning few things around the stables. Working on taking tack off at the moment. It’s really interesting and I’m loving it. πŸ™‚

Bailey’s getting so much of a celebrity, I swear he’ll be demanding collars made of platinum with diamonds encrusted on them soon. We were at Manchester United last week to do a photo shoot for the keepers sponsoring a puppy. It was a lot of fun.

He’s been working fab and I just bought him lots of presents from pet planet this week. πŸ™‚

In other news, losing weight. πŸ™‚ I hate diets as many of you know. I bitch that I can’t eat this or have to restrict that and generally quit after a few days. Anyway, Toni and Chelsea at Body Tonic in Shaw where I go for beauty and massage treatments have started selling these herbal pills for slimming. Yeah, yeah, I know, their crap, don’t work, etc , etc. Except these are working for me like you wouldn’t believe. Made purely of plant extracts and designed to suppress appetite, boost metabolism, break down sugars and fat quicker etc, etc. I’m not sure what they’re doing but they’re working.

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a junk food addict. I’m horrendous for craving chocolate or cakes or crisps and wouldn’t eat salad if it was the only thing at home without bread, potatoes or pasta to go with it. But besides a two finger kitkat I had a week last Sunday, [that I didn’t enjoy one bit], I haven’t eaten or even wanted to eat chocolate at all. Haven’t eaten crisps for five weeks or so, eating baked potatoes, salad, pasta, but none of the processed crap I used to shove into my system. I’m working out in the morning before breakfast, horse riding is helping of course, walking with pup, and not snacking, and if so, having a mulla rice or a jelly which are so low fat. And all of thsi non consciously. I don’t bullshit! If you know me well enough, you know it isn’t me. If something doesn’t work, I’ll say so. But for me, these are working. Many say I’ll just start eating crap again but I’m not sure I will. By the time I take my week’s break in two weeks, it’ll have been seven weeks junk food free. Your body creates chemicals to make you want to crave junk food more when y ou eat it. And I’m not saying I’ll never eat a cake or a chocolate bar again, but I’m saying it’ll probably be on a much healthier level.

The jeans I wore today would fasten 5 weeks ago but were too tight to wear extensively, but I had to wear a belt with them today. I’m feeling happier about my body and just hope this continues πŸ™‚

Hung out with Hannah today after she’d finished work. We went for dinner and a starbucks and I went into the Apple store and bought, yes, wait for it, my new macbook pro. Didn’t get home until 8:30 so will set it up tomorrow. And it was the 10TH anniversary of the Apple retail store today too. How cool is that? πŸ™‚

Well, everyone’s fine here. I’m getting tired so will probably consider bed as an option soon. Speak soon.
Hugs
MJ
