stop me if you think that you've heard this one before.

I meant to post this yesterday night, but due to technical difficulties (read: my netbook breaking after only 6 months and needing to get a brand new one) and a massive pile of homework I decided it can wait until now.

So, after being ill for the hundredth time this year I decided it was time I got my ass into shape, literally. This is an important year for me, my first set of exams are coming up at the end of April and I don't want to be ill and miss more work or revision of stuff I've already missed! So, armed with my Wii and a strange motivation I've never really had before, I'm going to get fit.
This seems to have stemmed from an "oh my god, I'm going to fail my exams and live in a cardboard box for the rest of my life"/stress/ocd attack yesterday. I gutted my room, sorted out a study plan and an exercise one too.
I've always been self concious about my weight, I've gone from eating barely anything to my atrocious diet recently of a Dominoes a week (the downside of being in a relationship) and now I'm trying to sort it out. I'm cutting out tea for a while due to the enormous amount of sugar I put in it, no red meat Monday - Friday, I couldn't miss out on a bit of Spag Bol at the weekend) and trying to get my 5 a day, every day.
I've also never been very active, I play netball once a week, occasionally twice, and have been known to make a rare appearance at the gym. Now, I'm playing Wii Fit for at least an hour every day, and Just Dance 2 (best game ever!) for at least 30 minutes too. I'm going to go back to the gym as well :)

I just suddenly feel so motivated and it's fantastic, apart from a slight hiccup yesterday with my laptop where I probably just sat and cried for a good while, I'm really happy and actually feel organised for a change! Around the new year I read tons of new year - new you posts, but I just wasn't motivated then, it's definitely time to kickstart. It doesn't have to be a new year to be a new you.

Sorry I've been quite MIA for a while! I was in Manchester for the long weekend then spent a lot of time with my boyfriend for Valentines Day. He knows me well, got me lots of yummy Soap & Glory stuff and took me out for dinner to TGI Fridays :) Anyway, on Tuesday I got my Diphtheria, Polio and Tetanus vaccination and I've felt absolutely horrible since Tuesday night. Was at the doctors today and my doctor said I actually have gastroenteritis (stomach flu) and that because my body's trying to sort the vaccine out that it's just not been able to deal with this too, plus I have a pretty rubbish immune system :( Not very nice, I can't even keep water down. So now I'm snuggled up on the sofa with my cat watching whatever I can find, mostly property programmes (my guilty pleasure) and catching up with a lot of the blog posts I've missed! I promise I'll try get back to posting soon <3

february already?!

So hey! Not posted in ages, been ill :( Today I want to share my new obsession, baking! I've always loved cooking and baking, but recently I just haven't stopped. I've always dreamed of having a cupcake shop in Affleck's Palace, but I'm pretty sure that won't happen! Anyway, here are a couple of the treats I've been making recently :)

The top two are my yummy cupcakes, I love making cupcakes and decorating them, but I've lost my piping bag and loads of my cake decorations! Need to go for a shop. Second is my delicious rocky road which I just finished a piece of, I love rocky road and this is the first time I've ever had a whack at making it, super easy!

This was just a quickie as Big Fat Gypsy Weddings starts in mere minutes! You can also find me on twitter :)
