Big School

I am so excited for Cameron to be finally going to school in September. 

When I heard back in April that he had got a place at the school I wanted him to it still seemed so far away but I think it's going to come around very fast now, with summer just around the corner. 

I have a meeting at the school in a couple of weeks to talk about all the details, and I need to start thinking about buying his uniform as well soon. 

I am so happy for him. He is going to love school. He has always been so eager to learn. It's a huge milestone and makes me feel pretty old and like I should really be more mature than I am!

Summer Healthy Eating

So, as I may have mentioned, I am trying very hard to eat more healthy, to exercise more and to tone my tummy and thighs up for the Summer. Yes, I know, Summer is pretty much already here now...but I am still working on it!

Being in a healthy relationship, my weight gain over the past several months is higher than I am happy about and I really want to do something about it.

I have pretty much cut carbs out of my evening meals and try to stick to plenty of vegetables with either chicken or steak. 
I have two slices of wholemeal toast for my breakfast and for lunch I generally have chopped fruit and veg, with some cheese and salsa. It's something I have had since I was a child and, being out of work at the moment, it is something I have time to prepare fresh on the day. I tend to have a Strawberry yoghurt with Strawberries as a 'dessert'.

My main downfall is Wine and Chocolate in the evenings. Sometimes after a stressful day I fall back on this and I know this is one of the major factors preventing me from reaching my targets. I've been trying to find healthier alternatives and something I am obsessed with at the moment is carrot sticks and Salsa. 

I have also tried to make healthier mini pizza bread with Be Good to Yourself Naan bread as well lately, for when I really want pizza. I make it with a bit of Cheddar and some Salsa for a slightly healthier version of the real thing.

Feeling More Positive

Following on from recent events, I have started back on antidepressants. I feel so much better already. I have been applying for jobs non stop for the past couple of weeks and I have started getting interviews for some of them. I am waiting to hear back from a couple at the moment. Attending interviews can be nerve wracking, but I am actually enjoying it as it is helping to improve my confidence. I am also branching out a bit in my job search and have applied for some very interesting companies and positions, which is great.

I am feeling so much better about everything and positive for my future, whatever it holds.

Fitbit Charge Review

With my birthday money I got the FitBit Charge. 

I had wanted something like this for awhile and, having done some research online, I decided the FitBit Charge would be best for me in my budget. I have had it for over a month now and I absolutely love it. I like being able to see how many steps I have taken in a day, and to see the calories I have burnt off but overall my favourite aspects are the sleep monitor, which has really helped me see how badly I sleep (that's having children for you) and the call alert. This function allows me to see that my phone is ringing, along with who it is calling me, even when my phone is on silent or in my bag. This has been really helpful as I am job hunting, so I don't miss important calls from recruitment agents or employers. 

Overall I think the FitBit is fantastic. I haven't used it to its full potential yet I feel, but I can see that it is helping me to be more active and motivated to lose weight and tone up. Ed is getting the FitBit Charge HR for his birthday at the end of this month, so I hope we can use them together.

Carly's Summer Wardrobe

Carly was in desperate need of some new summery clothes but obviously at the moment I don't have the money for a big shopping trip. Whilst doing my food shop in Sainsbury's recently I came across their sale and found some brilliant bargains. I did pick up a couple of their new pieces too but overall I didn't spend much and ended up with some lovely stuff.
