The gym that is.
I needed to - I, erm, piled a little weight on over the new year. I stepped on the scales this morning and my eyes pinged from their sockets. I mean, I don't feel different and my clothes fit me just like they did before (even ooooooold clothes from yesteryear - that I can get back into!). But it will soon be gone because its not fat weight, its glycogen and water retention weight. The beauty of doing a carb free/hi protein diet (but not atkins) is that if you blip, the weight you do put on is just water. But Im talking temporarily. If you go back to carbs full time then you will fill out, eventually. So there you go - an admission. Ive been a goooooood girl today and kept to plan and then tonight I went to the gym to do a spin class and a 30 minute interval training session on the cross trainer. It hurt.
Belle and I were on our own today as Marko is back at work. I had a ton of work to catch up on and Belles just vegetated. She doesn't go back to school until Thursday. She is excited about starting her new special needs school next Tuesday and the new special needs college next Wednesday. We have been informed that she can go to college in normal clothes - she is BEYOND excited about this notion. Poor kid, school is just not something she is grasping at the moment. I hurt for her.
I took delivery of my Sizzix order today and let me tell you - that was a fast delivery considering the fiasco on last years sale. I bought bits and bats from their sale. Stuff that will come in handy for this and that. My booty should have cost around £140 but I got it for £30 including delivery. I thought my sizzix buying days were over but who can resist a bargain.
If anything, they will do for visiting kids and youth group projects. I love the aeroplane on this one:
Hello Kitty flowery thingiesI don't know why I bought this girly die, but having been reduced fro £6 to something like 90p.... I wasn't going to leave it going rotten on the shelves.
Its funny what an 85% off sale can do to you!
I bought these fab jewelly thingies but I need a cheaper version of the dremel to be able to drill holes in these - who does one? anyone?
I got this from Artistic Stamper. Its dying to be adorned with all my little treasures but its most likely to be a rainy day project.
I got these stamps too - I cannot wait to use them
I bought this for £1 from the Next sales. It had two large faux jewels missing but I intend to make something with this - watch this space.
You need 12 of these for a free class I'm going to share with you at the weekend.
Don't tell me you don't have any After Eight envelopes..... I simply wont believe you, unless you are not from the UK. After Eights, for my overseas readers are thin mints that come in these super cool envelopes. Pwitty.
All pretty random purchases, really and crazy ideas to salvage things (that are rendered almost useless) has been the order of the day.
