Such a shame to hear about the death of Peaches Geldof. That family has been through nothing but tragedy and causes us to think if karma really does exist. For all the charity work that Bob Geldof did, he did not deserve to lose his wife to another man, and to then lose her forever. He didn’t deserve to lose his daughter.
Its a scary thought thinking that Peaches was only a year older than myself, happily married and with 2 gorgeous little children. No matter how her life was taken from the world, those 2 little boys are now going to grow up having barely known their mother, and to hear the tales of the Geldof family’s previous tragedies. My prayers and love go out to the family.
Such a shame. It really makes you look properly at what you do and don’t have, and right now I’m feeling particularly thankful that I still have my family surrounding me.
The holiday preparations are starting early this year. Been having hot baths and exfoliating sessions every night this week to get my bloomin legs sorted out. They’re starting to feel smooth as babys’ butts.
6 weeks tomorrow and we’ll be on our way to Manchester to fly out to my second homeland that is Crete!! And in just less than 10 weeks I shall be taking mine self and the sister to the airport to fly out there and surprise the family. Not that I’m counting or anything…but at the moment its keeping my mind off of (probably more important) other matters :)
Having not had hot water for 3 weeks and having to rely on tepid showers my skin has become atrociously unbearable to handle…no matter how many products I have used to cleanse.
Being able to have a stupidly hot bath right now, and just letting my skin sweat all the badness out has just made me feel 3million times better. Skin is silky smooth and super moisturised now. I might not eat the healthiest, or go to the gym 4 times a week or look after my house but if theres one thing I take good care of its my skin.
I take pride in my skin. And I love being pampered with face masks and steam treatments so you know…it all goes hand in hand.
The police never turned up this evening, which meant I overdid my eagerly awaited jacket potato. But on the other hand, I just got paid within 30 seconds of sending an invoice…and then a minute after that got offered a regular VA job…WAHOO.
Got in the car this am…saw the word ‘c*nt’ written in the rain…then noticed it was black. They’d sprayed it in black spray paint…looked down and my registration plate had been blacked out with spray paint too.
What the fuck have I done to deserve such shit over the past fortnight. Boiler breaking, being fixed, breaking again, getting shit from managers, making mistakes at work, thinking my suspension in my car has gone due to a massive great pothole and now this.
I think that this week will be the week I get my butt back in gear and get back to the gym after a couple of weeks off and get my fitness watch back in action to spur me on. Back to the 700-800 kcal burning workouts.
Today I got a lovely compliment from the girls at work. They said that if I aren’t given a permanent position in the office in October then they’re all genuinely going to go on strike because I’m the best worker they’ve come across and fit in with their mad little world.
I nearly shed a little tear. Never have I ever felt like I’ve fit into a work place as much as I do there. I love it!
I just saw a programme all about exercise and if it actually works.
Studies have shown that exercise and whether it works all falls down to a mix and match of 11 genes. The more of these specific genes a person has then the more effectively exercise will work (at burning calories). The less of these genes a person has then the less effective the exercise is when it comes to burning calories.
Part of me is thinking/hoping that I am one of the unlucky sods who have less genes…because I work my flipping butt off at the gym and despite my odd bouts of asthma when exercising outside I’m actually pretty damned fit.
Is there anywhere that actually officially states what is the correct diet to be eating and correct exercise to be doing?
