Fantastic News!

Hello Bloggies, guess who has a job?! Yes me!!!! Finally after 6 months I have a job. As you know i've been in a rut while being out of work, it's impacted every part of my life, my mind, eating habits, exercise and obviously money but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm so happy and excited to start which I think will be Monday. It's making me motivated again in everything and I can't wait for a routine. The fact that it is down the road is so nice after years of nearly 2 hour drives to work. So expect normal blogging of exercise and food pics to be back on soon.

Today for breakfast I had organic puffed brown rice then did the food shop in Sainsburys. After I went to see my friend Ellie and to see the gorgeous twins who are about 2 months old. So that cheered me up.

Then a late lunch of prawns with rice noodles and did some cleaning around the house and watched some trashy TV.

Dinner was beef in red wine stew which is one of the best stews ever. Totally awesome. Will post the recipe soon. Not the healthiest I know but yummy and warming.

I've started my inspiration board which has been really motivating in itself, i'll post some pics when it's finished.

Plans tomorrow are to go to town and return some clothing, I could really do with a pair of black trousers for my new job :-) and a few other bits. Then I think mum is popping round for a catch up. I want to try and get some exercise in but i've not been well the past few days so i'll see how I'm feeling tomorrow.

Anyway off to read some blogs before bed.
