What’s in Your Fridge?
1. List a few common items that can always be found in your fridge.  Sweet chili sauce, cheese, milk, pickles 
2. What kind of milk do you drink? Skimmed but we hardly ever use the whole bottle
3. Do you prefer fresh or frozen vegetables?  Fresh
4. What do you currently have to drink in the fridge? A bottle of water for work, my husband's light beers and currently some coke and tango as we just got back from the shop (trying to cut these down but failing miserably just now...)
5. How often do you clean out your refrigerator? When it needs cleaning, it never gets in a mess tbh.
6. What’s the healthiest thing in it right now? peppers and tomatoes
7. What’s the most unhealthy thing in it right now? Probably the soft drinks
8. What do you wish you had in it that you don’t have now? Pizza 
9. How often do you shop for groceries? It depends on whether we've done a "big shop", but  usually at least a 2-3 times if we've not.
10. What’s the weirdest thing in your fridge right now?  Nothing weird tbh, the only thing I can think of is the sweet chili, which in itself is not weird but the fact that I put it on almost anything is pretty strange, or at least my husband thinks so anyway! 
Bonus:  If you could choose one thing to put in the fridge and make it calorie-free what would it be?  My mam's key lime pie without a doubt!

 Ten Reasons To Be Thankful
1. My husband. He is everything to me, I really can't believe we found each other.
2. My family. Always supportive and loving.
3. Specifically my mam. She is truly the most amazing person I've ever met. She's so selfless and the most caring person ever. I hope I will be as good a mother as she is someday.
4. Friends former and present.  We may not be close now but at one time I could rely on them. 
5. My health.
6. Having the support and means to help me lose weight ie. a gym membership I can afford and that is convenient to use.
7. Having a job. 
8. Having things to look forward eg. getting to see my family in January, going on (a belated) honeymoon in March.
9.  Living where I live, how I want to live (minus a few money restrictions!)
10.  Feeling blessed and loved.

My first mile :)

I really surprised myself on Friday by being able to run my first straight mile without stopping/slowing down. Now I know that's nothing to most people but for me it was a huge achievement- and one I never imagined I'd see before now! I ran it in 12 mins 7 seconds which I'm definitely working on! My husband has given me the challenge of eventually running an 8 minute mile- I don't know if this is even physically possible for me?! It may be a bit ambitious but at least it gives me a long term goal to aim towards! My husband used to be one of those people who would run miles and miles for fun- I can't imagine feeling like that! Maybe one day ...Lol  

I was thrilled on Friday but I needed to push myself that little bit more today. I decided to up my speed by 0.5 units and what do you know?! I managed to knock over a minute off my time!! I wish I could have gave myself a high 5 when those 11 minutes 2 seconds were up!!! But then again I was a little preoccupied with the fact that my chest felt like it was going to explode- no joke! Ha! 
                                   
Sorry for the crappy quality of this photo but I was trying to take it as quickly as possible as I didn't want to look like a proper weirdo getting snap happy in the gym! 

After the treadmill I did some weight training and finished off on the elliptical. 35 minutes is the longest I've stayed on it before so I'm chuffed with that- I love seeing how many calories I've burned!! :)                                                                                                                        I'm having a break tomorrow as we're going to a bonfire and fireworks display, but should get back on it on Tuesday! Hope everyone's had a great weekend! :)

Halloween!!

Halloween always seems to creep up on me before I know it! I went out with my friend and her flatmate. I love getting dressed up and this year decided to go as "Where's Wally", am I right in thinking the character is "Waldo" on the other side of the pond? I had a lot of people pointing and saying "there he is!" "there's Wally!", "found you" etc it was funny! :)



My husband and I were meant to carve our pumpkins but I didn't have time as I was running late for going out.




I really wanted to carve a pumpkin as I don't think I've ever carved one myself- definitely  next year though!!
My husband did carve two (one was rather rude and I don't have a pic of it) But here is his spooky faced one!
