I’m been a bit rubbish with this blog recently as I haven t had much news to share, but I’m going to give you a little update on what Ive been up to this past month.
I have now lost 20 pounds! YAY! As i mentioned in my last weight loss post, I feel really great about myself. I do have another 2/3 more stone to lose, although I don’t really need to loose that much, it would be nice to see if i can get to a weight that i haven’t been since i was a child hahah. But I’ve dropped a dress size which is great and I’m feeling really good about myself at the moment. It’s amazing what staying focused and losing weight gradually can do to ones self-esteem and confidence. Many friends have told me I’ve gained confidence, and I have. Not much, granted, but I’m getting there. Over Xmas I am still sticking to WW and trying not to deter too far from it as I don’t want to go back to weigh after Xmas and be shown that i have put on. So here’s to being good this year for once.
I’ve written about 80 pages so far but recently I haven’t written anything. I still plan to write, and as I’ve said, i have the story, but I’m just not feeling like writing at the moment. I’m sure after the New Year my muse will come back, but right now, I don’t have the motivation to sit down and write when I have books to read and review and I have an Xmas job to go to. I WILL write this book, as its something i have been wanting to do for years, but right now…its not happening.
On a happier note, as you can see from the sidebar, I have set up my own Book Review Blog – if you would so kindly take a look. As someone who LOVES books, it was inevitable that this would be a career path to go down. Right now, I have many an author who are emailing me and asking me to review their books in return for an honest review – hence being too busy to write. Albeit, some books I do not review as they are not my kind of books, but I have become friends with one author who sends me books in return for reviews and I know i can count on her to boost my viewings as she can count on me to write honest reviews and get more people to read her books. I am also a reviewer for Female First, although my reviews aren’t up yet, I do hope they will be up soon. So in the future i would love to have a career in Publishing. It would be a dream come true to work with something that i love!
I have an Xmas job! I am a Sales Adviser in Next and so far, i am loving it there. I hope I’m kept on but if I’m not, I now have retail experience. I really thought my interview went bad but an hour later they rang me up telling me I got the job. I am now till, shoe and changing room trained, have more confidence in talking and helping costumers and I’m over my fear of the massive stockroom! Albeit it is an Xmas job and i have a few weeks left before knowing if I’m kept on or not, but it’s gotten me out of the house and given me something to do for a few hours a week, which is great as being cooped up in the house was starting to drive me crazy.
That is everything so far in my life. Hopefully I will update this blog more, but right now, I’m focusing on my book reviewing site, so click on the link next to this blog, and come and join me in my other world. You may even find a book you like the look of!
Have a great Xmas and New Years everyone!
Until next time.
