Weight Loss Update: Week 8

I hoped that I would be starting this post in a better frame of my mind.   I’ve only got myself to blame and I should have seen it coming really.     I haven’t exercised again this week. Yes, I still have a cough, but my cold has gone now.   The first week of my cold I genuinely couldn’t have exercised because my chest was so tight.    The week after I still had a cold, but I was well enough to exercise. I just used my cold as an excuse not to.   Food wise this week…. [Read More]

After doing some research online and looking at various types of diets I have decided that the one I’ll be following is the NHS Live Well 12 week plan. I used the NHS BMI healthy weight calculator to check my BMI and it came back as 25.64. This means I am overweight, although only just.

Red Nose Day Cookie Challenge

As one of Sainsbury’s Family Bloggers we have been challenged to design a Red Nose Day cookie to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day. Using Betty Crockers Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix Pouch I was able to create my cookies easily in an hour.  Sainsbury’s will choose 5 favourite designs and put them up for vote by the 610,000 fans on their Facebook page. The winning cookie design will then be published on Sainsbury’s Facebook page, as well as their Live Well for Less Comic Relief baking section.  Wish me luck! What do you think of my cookie design?
