{Wobbles Wednesday}

There's something about a tan that makes me feel more confident and I think I just look better with a bit of colour... makes me feel slimmer, which seems ridiculous I know, but I do.

Anyway, yesterday I got a spray tan and my nails done in a glittery black colour (fingers & toes!) with Stephanie at Beauty in the Basement, which is in Kano. Stephanie does Tuesday Treats for £10 :-) I'm all set for holidays!


My weight hasn't really changed since joining in with Kate's Wobbles Wednesday blog hop which I'm rather disappointed about. I'd like to get to the 11 stone mark and tone up a bit, but progress is really slow! (The cakes aren't helping I know!).

I weighed myself this morning and expected my weight to be the same, but I've lost 1 lb. Yippee!!! I'm really chuffed. So that's me now at 11 stone 3 lbs. Just 3 lbs to go to get to my target, sounds so simple doesn't it.

I've been running lots (less so in the last week due to other commitments) and yet this doesn't seem to be making much of a difference. It's true that losing weight is 70% diet and 30% exercise... abs are made in the gym but revealed in the kitchen.


I'm definitely going to try harder with eating clean after my holiday. Does anyone have any recommendations for books, blogs or the like for getting me started?

    1. Thank you for all the info on paleo principles & for writing a blog post on it at my request! It's been really useful and I think I will attempt to start on Monday next week once I've done some meal planning :-)
