I have been addicted to food all my life and have decided to now find help for my "little" problem and take back control of my body.

I am writing this so that I can inspire, become motivated and finally find a life where food is not the answer to everything.

I am British born, but am currently living in NYC (so please excuse the spelling if it changes about a little bit).

I want this blog to become an inspiration to prove to you and to me that real results can be achieved in real time, on a low budget and by a confirmed couch potato

Welcome to my journey

Yerba Mate

I have been trying and trying to like this drink with no avail....until (please imagine angel chimes and cherubs in the air )

I can tolerate this mint flavor...in fact I may go as far as to say that I like this flavor.

Progress has been made in the caffeine department and hopefully (with the aid of Guayaki), I may be able to survive these NYC days and nights

did some exercise

Did a 10 minute workout with the 10 minute ab buster dvd I have.
I really have set myself up to fail. I cant find my sports bra or measuring tape to check waist size and have no exercise mat.
I did about 7.5 minutes of the tape which I though was pretty good considering I have never done it before.

Saturday Food
pizza breadbowl thing from Dominos (no cheese)
bowl of cherries
2 mini mince pies (200 cals)
salad with fried tofu
3 woo woo cocktails
2 mini apple sauce things (200 cals)
I think that was it

fresh pineapple (whole foods tub)
roasted butternut squash (1/2)
2 cheese filled quesadillas
can of coke zero
2 apple sauce mini tubs (200 cals)

So still the same weight

This is getting annoying.
I currently have a vomiting bug so hopefully some weight will drop off.
Have been having the oatmeal for breakfast and salads, soups and sweet potato a lot.
Also stopped buying dairy products in a hot that would make a difference.....nothing as of yet.

Halloween Candy

Oh God,
So after eating way too much candy today I decided to measure myself.

Waist: 50 inches
Hips: 50 inches
Breats: 55 inches
I now feel very very sick and want to vomit.

I am twice the size a human should be

Walk dogs tomorrow and gotta work out more

Nantucket food adventures

Sorry I have not written recently, but I was kidnapped by little island called Nantucket. I was very tempted to stay forever, bu decided I needed to return home to feed the cat!!

One morning whilst visiting on said island, I returned to my hotel room to discover a little package on my bed.

What could it be I wondered to myself?

After what seemed like a lifetime of guessing (about 10 seconds), I opened up the little package to discover 2 little chocolate whales.

One was gobbled in a second. It was only once I had bitten its head off that I decided to take a picture (apologies dear reader)

Probably the closet I will ever get to kissing a whale in real life.

I just love small surprises like that. Even when I go to a shop, I ask to get things wrapped so that I can enjoy pulling all the fancy ribbons and bows off and getting to the "gift" underneath. Yes I know I already know what it is but there is still a lot of fun in unwrapping something.
Have you ever received a nice wrapped surprise on your hotel bed?
Is it just me that turns into a 5 year old at the sight of unwrapping something?
