Getting back on track and a little Op shopping......


Those of you who have been following my blog for a while may have wondered what happened to my updates on my weight loss with Jenny Craig........well no point making excuses or lying is there so I will come right out and say that I fell off the wagon! Oops! It just kind of happened around, during and after my 50th birthday, too much celebrating and well ya know, too much food and  too much booze basically. So when I got the call from Jenny Craig a few weeks ago it was the kick up the pants that I needed to get back on track. Long story short, 4.4 kgs had snuck back on! Not bad I thought considering what I'd been up to. It is however most annoying as I'm still trying to get those 4.4kgs back off, and it didn't help having Michael's 21st recently either. Sigh! 2.4kgs to go before I'm back to where I had got to before the lapse. My original goal was to lose 20kgs before the UK trip in August and if I'm to stick to that goal I will have to lose on average 1.35kgs a week over the next 6 weeks. Can it be done?? I'll give it damn good try!

As I was out today getting weighed and Joe at home asleep after a night shift, it seemed only right and proper that I visit a few op shops. Be rude not too as I was passing and it's all for a good cause! 

At the local SPCA shop I bought these magazine for 20cents each

St Vincents De Paul had theses sundae dishes for $3 each

The Salvation army shop in town were selling CDs for $3.........

 ....and the bag was $7

Habitat for Humanity had these cute napkin rings for $2...........

......small knitting bag/basket thing for $3.....

.....and this rather cool jacket for $10, I don't think it's been worn!

....and that's it for today. If there's nothing on the TV to watch tonight, I might just watch a DVD.

See ya next time ♥
