I’m awake…I’m awake…maybe just another half hour…god…what I wouldn’t give for a venti caramel macchiato. I’ve got every except a Starbucks next to my bed.

Oooh dear. Audiobook too exciting. Late to bed. Think I may be hungry but I’ve made a deal…every time I lose a few lbs I get a new pandora charm for my pandorabracelet.

Cool idea because I don’t do diets. I do fasts. Or cleanses. But maintain my weight easily (usually) because I don’t have a sweet tooth mostly I think. Plus I dance a lot. However, I won’t do pointe unless I am the low end of normal for my height.

I suppose when dad was ill…and then I’ve been seeing Spider and especially recently his work finishes later, I have eaten junk too often. I honestly don’t know how people live on junk cos it’s put me off food now!

So…green drink and Apple Cider Vinegar cleanse. With enough Maple Syrup to make sure I can workout without getting lightheaded.

I feel all toxic and weird. Hope it’s sodium poisoning from eating salty yellow lard…or cheese as most call it. Bleh!

So now instead of hanging my stinky Grishko Novas (ballet shoes) by the bed to remind why it’s time to detox, I have a goooorgeous Pandora Bracelet.

I don’t know my weight at the moment. I can judge it pretty well by how my corsets close…at ballet weight I can close a 20″ corset. And I always think, 5lbs adds half an inch.

I put on weight evenly but my ankles, hands and wrists are tiny. If they look skinny compared to the rest of my body, it means I am over my normal size.

So…no Weight Loss diet…because weight isn’t the only thing that matters…I have to be healthy!

My natural waist at 8 and a half stone (I’m 5’5″) is 24″ and my clothes are a 6-8. But if I am not dancing, it could be 25″ – I could be a size or two bigger than when I am normal fitness. So exercise is vitally important to me. Especially when you are on a cleanse in my opinion. Eating low calories (or drinking them), you don’t want your muscles (like your heart) to waste away! Also a good cardio session keeps your appetite in check. Well. It does for me.

So…I will get up in a minute…just need a Lady Gaga fix while I rehydrate on Evian and look at the Pandora website…

Maybe I will weigh myself…just to estimate how many lbs I need to lose to earn each charm to fill up this bracelet. There were some lovely spacers…sparkly…but I want those in pairs…so whatever charms I choose my bracelet looks balanced.

There are also ones that are hanging charms…and Pandora bracelets are sterling silver and made to fit my wrist. Which is amazing as I have to buy kids bracelets and watches usually. I’m totally in love the concept. Even planning to set a goal after this and then another…cos I think I would wear 3 bracelets. This one is heart themed…so I am even thinking of themes for others later already. And wondering if I would go for the necklace at a later date.

I love the “gold star” type approach to self motivation!

For those in the know, my first Pandora bracelet has a heart clasp, a pair of heart clips and the safety chain has hearts on it too. My first charm is an open work sphere made up of hearts too.

image

So with the bracelets and the blingy clips and clasp, and safety chain it was around £250. Charms range in price massively. I would say an average of £30 each…but it really depends on the size and style. There are some that are higher prices because they’re gold or they have precious stones. But I am going for silver and I’m not a fan of gold jewellery.

Oooh. I totally adore Pandoras at the moment! Really good quality…and subtle too. A bracelet I won’t need to remove for typing is a miracle in itself!

Ok…time to publish and get up! My blog about Midwich Cuckoos and Aspergirls is still being edited…that should be out later this week though!

Personal Upd8 | Decorating | Elvis | Lucky Stars | Silver Linings | In the Pink ♡

image

Ok…Elvis is playing dirty in the paint wars! I was doing some admin and he’s painting the office…I do the decent thing and go give him a hug and he blobs my nose! Game on! Gonna plan my own sneak attack 🙂

But do check it out. This pink dries darker than it is on my nose (does that count as body art?) – so it’s kind of a fuschia – really brings out the green in my eyes! Lol ♡

Gotta say, never have had a boyfriend who works as hard as I do…it’s refreshing. A man is as good as his word and my ex talked cr** – in fact, was a liar by his own admission (beggars belief I gave him the benefit of the doubt really. My bad). But credit where credit’s due. H did do one thing right – he left! And it may not have seemed it at the time buy that was an ocean of silver lining: I escaped being saddled with liability; got my mojo back; met my Teddy Boy…and if my ex hadn’t left, my walls wouldn’t be fabulously pink now either!

They say God never closes a door without opening a window…I can totally vouch for that!

In the mood for counting my lucky stars tonight. I’ve got whole constellations going on here and it just keeps getting better.

I’m “in the pink” quite literally ♡
