25 and mid year resolutions

So in order to write this post I really should have looked at what my 'new year resolutions' were first, but I can't be bothered doing that right now. This is just a quick entry.

I turned 25 on Friday, I went to work and was spoilt by Memma, Ball of Love, Doops, all my department, Lois, TallBoy sent me balloons and Love Child was the sweetest sending me wonderful flowers which really moved me. It was a good day, I made a terrible cake without sugar and my coworkers were polite about it. Yay for my baking skills.

That night Tallboy and I had reservations at one of Perth's finest restaurants 'C' restaurant.  I had been quite sick that week so I asked him to cancel it so we could eat chinese food, sit in our track pants and watch bad TV. That is exactly how I spent my 25th birthday night and it was amazing. I really needed it.

Saturday I spent the day with friends and saturday night I caught up with Mortgage 25.

It was a good weekend, today I did nothing. I have come down with a chest infection so I needed a day in bed and on the couch. Sucks that it hasn't quite shifted yet.

So I don't know what's brought on my new focus but as I had been quite down during the week missing my mum and it being so close to a birthday I think I gave myself a bit of a wake up call. I haven't been looking after myself at all. I've been quite reckless with my lifestyle, my body and my choices.

Health has always been something I've been lazy with, completely taken it for-granted and skin care too. I know exactly what time period I gave up on looking after myself, I know exactly when I became depressive and lacked regard for myself. It's been too long and I need to get myself together, I'm 25 now, that's time to officially grow up. Last week I went on a carb and sugar binge and my skin has paid for it and also with getting continuously sick I know I need to get my act together.

So my new focus is to be selfish with what I do, I need to force myself to get into a new routine, with food, body, lifestyle and study. I need to instead of sit on the couch, walk the dogs, take my make up off and fix my chipped nail polish. I need to study at least a few hours every week. & I'm finally going to make myself do it.

I do as I said before currently have a chest infection so instead of hitting the gym hard I will just ensure that I walk the dogs daily until I'm all cleared up.
I'm going to ensure that when I get home from work the first thing I do is take off my make up and do my new skin care regime (Natio Young products are working wonders.)
I will also set up a time frame for each weeknight that I do, do the required study time.

These are things that I'm working on, i'm working on being more positive. I love whinging, I think to me whinging and complaining is a comfort. I have had some terrible things happen in my life, I have had a broken heart for too many years now but I need to grow and try to mend.

I will get there.

I love the show the new girl because I love Zooey Deschanel.
So many of my friends have said that her quirky character, Jess Day on the show reminds them of me.
I have to agree.
I really am that loveable and annoying all at the same time, plus i'm highlarious.


I forgot how obsessed I used to be with Rory and Jess' relationship.

I am exhausted so i'm writing a list of what I have to blog about tomorrow morning:

- week night - what I did this week
- ice skating
- perth night out

I luff my Memma

So my Memma was away from work for a full 3 weeks, the longest we've ever been apart from each other. She came back to work this week and I have been so happy again - no more separation anxiety, yay for me!

(When she was gone and I was doing her work, her desk looked like this)

It's so funny thinking of the first time we met each other at work (apart from a brief encounter through friends of friends the year before?) we were scared of each other. Haha we both knew, that we both knew the same people and knew of each other outside of work so it was awkward, so we avoided talking to each other for the first 2 - 4 weeks of working with each other & then one day I think I just talked to her about a mutual party or something and who knows we hit it off.

(The first time we met each other without thinking we'd know each other in future…awks)

Memma and I have one of the weirdest but best friendships ever, it's hard to describe but we just 'get' each other and we can actually spend 8 hours a day together 5 days a week and still want to hang out on weekends (we have something very wrong with us.)

It's weird that someone who is younger than you can be kind of inspiring, she's just very put together for someone who should be so all over the place. She has the best heart and she tries so hard in every aspect of her life, it makes me try harder to achieve things and also to try and be better with my family.

She's always looking out for me, even though I'm bigger and older than her. Haha Silly Kid, but I totes appreciate it.

Oh and she's the best singer ever, it's annoying. Stop being so good at stuff.

Wildfox why you so expensive?

So I'm doing Birthday online shopping as my gift to myself from Tallboy. So far I have bought some accessories online and I have enough 'Birthday money' left to get a dress or item of clothing. I'm struggling with what to choose. The things I like are terribly expensive and my ever tempremental body image issue currently has me uncertain about what I can / should wear… anyway I stumbled across Wildfox.
Wildfox why you so expensive? Seriously :( wah. $117 for a jumper? I agree it is a gloriously amazing jumper that looks incredible on the model (I'd look so frumpy) and I would definitely only wear this around the house because it looks like an amazingly warm jumper as if you'd walk around with a heater on you. Perfect lounge clothing. I couldn't pull it off wearing it in public.

Anyway I'm trying to find a dress. It's hard shopping online though, I'm very much 'over' buying things online because you can't try them on (I mean you can once purchased, but then returning it and all that, blah, WAY too hard.)

I love the brand finders keepers and I really like this dress but I'm trying to figure out if it'll suit me or not. It pulls it at the waist which would be great at the moment because I've lost a stack of weight from my waist. I am going to have a think about this one :) 

Anyway apart from that I'm starting my no sugar and no carbs lifestyle again tomorrow, I weighed myself yesterday and since the start of the year I've lost 10kg however, I celebrated a bit too much this weekend and ate so much food (extremely bad food) and I didn't do any exercise this weekend. So I need to get back on track, the withdrawal headaches are going to suck. But I'm fairly determined to get back in to the 65-69kg range again. My ultimate goal weight it 65kg and to be able to stay at that weight. Keeping it off is the biggest challenge apparently losing it is the 'easy' part. gahhhhhhh. 

I want to go back to thisssssssss…
Skinny tummy (pre-boob job. naww teeny boobs haha)
small armssss

Cute butt, 1cm 'love handles' yesssss pleaseeeee.

This was only 4 years ago, of courseeee I can lose all my weight in 4 months, it only took 4 years to put it all on, OF course I can lose it quickly (Was totes being sarcastic) 

The most EPIC weekend of all time

wow that title was a build up wasn't it? Anyway, I was totes kidding, i've had one of the most uneventful weekends on the planet.

On Friday night I came home and made healthy home made pizzas with Tallboy and his best friend. Then I chilled out and just watched youtube.

On Saturday I did some cleaning with Tallboy but I quickly gave up, then I went to the shops to get Balloflove a birthday present, I went to get my hair cut but everywhere was too busy to do it, I went to get my lip pierced but it was too expensive. So I went and bought some wine. Wine is ALWAYS logical. Then I drank some wine and attempted to study which F.Y.I is actually really hard when you don't have a home office, a printer, or a scanner. So I only managed to do 14% but hey at least it's a start. I'm going to try and do an hour each night after work. Then after 5 hours of trying to study and slowly going insane I gave up and went to a BBQ.

Today I got up after the most magical sleep, then I went to lunch with have chat, it was awesome. I came home and was so bored so I decided that I would cut my hair, badddddd idea. I am not a hair dresser, I also put bleach in some parts of my hair, BADDDDDDD IDEAAAAA. I should not touch my hair when I'm bored. ugh so terrible. I'm also having terrible skin and a fat day, so now I look like an acne riddled, fat, teenage boy. Terrible.

So that concludes my most epic weekend ever.
