How 2014 has changed me

Disclaimer - Firstly I will say that today's post doesn't focus on losing weight or clean eating, as its more of a reflection of 2014 but this is something that I needed to 'put to paper' as they say to clear my head and mentally prepare for the coming year. Don't worry, this isn't a 'New Year, New Me' post!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and received everything that you had wished for!

2015 is nearly upon us which makes me think back to what has happened in the past year. I can just about remember celebrating New Year round my sisters place at a house party and driving my best friend to work the next day, feels so long ago!

This year has held a lot of changes for me

More During Pics, Week 11 Weigh In and New Recipe

Well week 11 weigh in arrived on Monday. Where did those 11 weeks go!? 
So in 78 days I have taken it upon myself to become a healthier person and to finally combat my addictive relationship with food and alcohol FOR GOOD! It has been a little rollercoaster of a journey, not too emotional or dramatic as I've tried to lose weight countless of times before so

Christmas Thoughts

The weekend before Christmas has nearly come to an end. Has everyone done their final dash to the shops? Or are you still planning on venturing out over the next three days to tie up loose ends? I'm definitely in the latter category, I think I've still got 4 presents to get! Luckily I have half days Tuesday and Wednesday to finish buying and wrapping presents, run errands and make a clean cranberry sauce for Christmas Day.

Weigh In, Pics and 2015...

Weekly weigh in #10 was in full swing Monday morning! I was excited to see what the scales had in store for me after following a friends meal plan and changing my gym work out for a week. Was I going to have another good loss like last week? I had been such a good girl and had followed the meal plan as best I could (didn't eat dinner one night due to social commitments but was so incredibly hungry the next day, I ate a pot of pineapple as extra the following day, not a good move says my friend due to the calorie content). So after emptying my bladder (apologies if that's TMI but I do weigh first thing in the morning!) and taking off my PJ's, I head downstairs to the scales. Nervous and excited I step on the scales and wait for the digital screen to stop flashing...

Thank you

I hope everyone is having a good week, less than 2 weeks until Christmas Day! Are you all ready? I can't say I am! Still have quite a few gifts to buy and wrap and a turkey to get! I am pretty terrible at leaving things to the last minute though, as my family and friends can definitely agree with!

Firstly I wish to start off this post by

What a surprise!

Wow! What a shock awaited me on Monday morning!

As most of my Facebook friends know, my weekly weigh in takes place on a Monday and after Friday nights drinking session, I was really nervous as to what the scales were going to say. I know that you shouldn't let the number on the scales define who you are as a person but it is hard not to

Busy busy busy!

What a hectic week! Had several days off work to have an extended weekend but I feel like I haven't stopped. Got most of the things done on my To Do list but still need to finish off my Christmas shopping and other bits, time just flies doesn't it?

Keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrows weigh in, I have still eaten clean and didn't succumb to the visit to

You think its a lot...

So... My first rant post!

Today I had a mini weigh in. Tonight I am going out to celebrate a friends birthday and I'm rather nervous as to what the alcohol is going to do to my weigh come Monday so I thought I'd better have a mid point check to see how I was getting on.

Green Tea and a New Recipe

I hope you've all had a good weekend so far. I'm sure some of you are already getting ready for Christmas, I haven't even started yet! Well, apart from buying 2 bottles of Champagne for the family Christmas Day lunch, I am terribly behind, as usual!
But I have a few days off next week so I am aiming to sort out my lists of what I'm getting everyone, buying everything online and

Is this for me?


Well this week has certainly been the toughest week so far on my new lifestyle. I know that you shouldn't allow the scales to define you, your self worth or your moods but this is something I've never been able to do. I know there are other indicators of

Clean Eating

So I'm sure some of you are asking the question... What is clean eating?

Well in a nutshell it is eating foods that are unprocessed and foods that are as natural as possible, similar to the Paleo way of eating. Eating foods that are free from additives, preservatives and man made chemicals. Once you start looking

Introduction Post

Hi I'm Emma and welcome to my Blog! 

I'm a 32 year old red-head from Southampton UK and like most girls, I have struggled with my weight and relationship with food for my entire teenage and adult life. For years I have obsessed about my weight and my looks and allowed it to define my own self worth, constantly comparing myself to others and feeling that unless
