A good diet is not cake !

I still haven't got the battery for my scales  *Sigh* but what I have come to realise a good diet is not cake is I have to resist the temptation of cake which is easier said than done as I work in a school. Its someones birthday or celebration every other week.And then there was my good friends Di ironing party and there was cake , I nearly thought my good diet out of the window until I remember a good trick someone taught me a few years ago ( this will not work for everyone  ). The trick is to visualise the cake as something horrible I won't tell you what I think of as I don't want to you off your food*Ironic*

But you could imagine say for you that if you pick that cake up you would in fact be eating a slug! I am sure by now you get the picture of what I am trying to achieve.

The second thing I have started doing is taking more exercise such as cycling to work and using to weights to get rid of my bingo wings! I lost a shed lot of weight when I was 18 and I am determined to get back to nearly what I was then.  As I approach 40 with break neck speed I want to be fab at 40 not in a cougar manner ! I hasten to add! But I want to feel right about my self again which I am sure is something I can do!


  1. Good tip I might give it a go. x

  2. Well done on all the exercise Claire.

  3. Good tip !! And well done on resisting the cake ! xx

  4. I need to buy batteries for my scales too, thanks for the reminder! Every time I go to use them I end up remembering and having to guess. Our mechanical ones had a crash against the floor courtesy of LittleT and came apart so had to chuck them away. I'm 40 next year, it's going to be fabulous, we're going to be fabulous! Party with non sluggy cake and a nice fitting dress my Fabulous Friend ;)
