Another week has gone by so quickly. I’ve had some late nights at work trying to get everything done, so by the time I get home in the evening, I don’t want to do anything. That coupled with not sleeping well means this hasn’t been the best week. Here’s to a better week next week!

I haven’t weighted myself this week as I know I haven’t tried as hard as I should have. When work is stressful I do end up reaching for more sugary things to get by. I know that’s a bad habit and I’m working on not doing that, but it is hard. I’m still hoping to reach my aim of 4 lbs lost in September though!


5 things I’ve enjoyed/been grateful for this week:

1) Me and my husband have been away for the night and it’s been lovely.

2) Made some chocolate chunk cookies for work this week which were good. Great with a cuppa!

3) Skype chats with friends which make me smile.

4) Movie night with my husband – we watched Captain Phillips which was excellent.

5) Chip Friday! Our boss bought everyone in the department chips for lunch on Friday – naughty lunch but very tasty.

1) Being a Landlord is a Dirty Job by Color Me Frugal. As someone who is somewhat interested in the real estate world, this was an eye opening post.
