Gratitude List #4

Wow these weeks seem to be flying by! We’re almost at the end of the first week of the Easter holidays already! Here’s this week’s Gratitude List:

#1- Weightloss Lift Off!

It was my first weigh-in yesterday with Slimming World. I lost 1.5lb! (Big woo I hear some sarcastic people thinking; yes-I hear people thinking-it’s a talent lol!) The reason I am celebrating so vehemently, however, is that I had an Easter Egg-shaped mishap this week and it was my TOTM! This has NEVER happened before. I normally gain at least 2lb because I turn into some sort of Basking Shark for a week.

#2- Time

I’ve had some time this week to really re-connect with Phoebe & EsmΓ©. We haven’t spent lots of money and been to loads of places but we have played. Together. As a family. I really think it has benefited all of us. It’s so easy just to switch the TV on and carry on with what you’re doing (I have been very guilty of this) but it is really important to just stop, listen and play.

#3- Beauty

Starting to notice beauty in little things. Over the last few years I had turned into such a negative person. I used to be known at school as Smiler. I hadn’t been that for such a long time. Now, slowly, I am starting to see everyday happiness and beauty in things again. Especially in my babies.


#4- Sleep

Last night, I actually had a full 8 hours sleep! I went to bed at 9pm as I could barely keep my eyes open, but I feel SO much better for it.

Well, that’s all for this week! I hope you’ll join me again next Friday!

      It’s the first one in a very long time lol! I have been stupidly lucky though that both the girls LOVE their sleep. Phoebe actually asks if it’s bedtime lol. xx
