Last Monday I weighed in at SW with. 1.5lb loss. As I’m hoping for the same this week (or, to be honest, a little more….or perhaps I should be even more honest and say ‘a lot more’ but let’s be realistic here) I resisted the cakes on offer at the Macmillan coffee morning at the gym.

It’s been a difficult week at work. The life of a HR Advisor can be an unpredictable one, and it certainly was – employee issues, payroll problems and endless frustrations. I worked late on two of my three days and still had to leave several things undone. I like to go into each week having cleared everything the week before but it was not to be.

It was rather plain so I got some football decorations (just need to add some candles) and now it looks like this:
