WELL, I’ve made it a week! HURRAH! I’m surprised at how easy the first week has gone, actually! I don’t have much money (post-Christmas blues) which is actually really helping with food choices, as I simply can’t afford to quickly nip in to the Burger King next door to work or pick up a sandwich and snack on my way in the morning.

I’ve actually been MAKING my lunches this week; who knew that was even possible?! I’m currently giving the 5:2 diet a go, which I will talk about in the future, but the two fast days went really well, although the recipes I chose could do with a little tweaking before I share them with people!

I definitely didn’t walk anywhere near as much as I should have, which is very disappointing and something that needs some work. I also didn’t save as much as I expected to, but seeing as I don’t have much money post Christmas, I can accept for now!

It would be amazing to be able to say that I feel different inside, but I don’t. Not yet, anyway. I am looking forward to feeling a little bit less… Ballooned? And for my clothes to feel a little less snug!

My dining room is currently starting to take shape, and I’m now just waiting to get some plaster work done and then it’s on with the paining! When it’s all (completely) finished, I’ll share some before and after pictures! I have a strong passion for Interior Design, and with this being my first house, I’m so excited to be able to share the progress I (we) make!

Anyway, lots of love! I’m hoping to post a weekly update on my ‘New Year Goals’ every Wednesday, and a new piece of creative writing every Friday! I’ve still got Wednesday’s and Sunday’s to figure out, but everything is starting to come together!

Have a great week!

Stephen.
