Angela's Update




Hi everyone.  It has been a while since I wrote an update on what's happening with me. So while I have 10 minutes to myself, here is what's been happening.




The first thing, possibly the biggest, is my decision to follow Slimming World from home. Eating healthier is something I have wanted us to do as a family for a while now. James and the kids can still enjoy chocolate etc but I have decided to seriously limit that kind of treat and find alternatives that fit in with the plan.  I aim to lost 4 1/2 stone.  My first target is 2 stone by September 21st.  Why that specific date? Well.....




Yes, you guessed it, I am going to see Shane Filan in concert on September 21st.  I want to have more energy and be able to wear nice clothes!! I know I wear nice clothes already but as I wear loads of dark colours it would be nice to wear something bright, fun and cool (it gets so hot in the venue).  Hopefully I will get the chance to meet him again too. Ahh a girl can dream.

Lastly I have changed my degree from Psychology to Health and Social Care.  The reason for this is simple, it gives me a chance to focus on mental health during year 2 and year 3.  It also gives me better opportunities for work experience.  I can't wait to start back in October.

On a family level, Liam goes into primary 4 and Sophie is graduating from nursery on Monday 26th June and goes into primary 1 in August.  They really don't stay little for very long.

  4. Good luck with your weight loss and your degree, I'm sure you will do great with both. You are right about kids not staying little for long, my baby has just lost one of his front teeth, a sure sign of growing older. xx
