Ex-smoker. Day 5

I can't believe that today is Day 5 of not smoking. It is nearly a week!

1. I slept last night for the first time since I quit
2. I am a little bit grumpy this morning
3. I have developed a ridiculous hunger for everything. I have to be careful to control it.
4. I was at a wedding last night. Had a few beers but I didn't smoke. Yay! I did however hover around the sweetie table quite a bit... mmmmmmm. .. fried eggs and marshmallows....
5. I am starting to smell things better
6. I can feel my chest is getting close to clearing
7. I suddenly want to run. (ME! RUN?!)
8. My sinus are doing something. Not sure what.
9. I've saved about £24
10. I am going to beat this

  1. Start putting the money you would have spent on cigarettes into a jar and it's a great incentive when you see how much you are saving (after 3 or 4 months I was able to pay for a week long holiday in France!) Be strict on yourself to do it even if you can't find the change or money because if you wanted a box of fags you'd always be able to find the cash! Also download the app quit now. I had it on my phone for 3 years after quitting and it was great to look at it and see the improvements. Good luck :-) Sarah

Life of Lu - thankfuls 10/09/2017

Today is the first official day of my holidays from work, and truth be told they couldn't come at a better time. I am tired, exhausted even and full of doubt about what my future holds for a number of reasons. So, I thought to myself, what a perfect time to write a list of thankfuls to remind me of all the truly wonderful things I have in my life.

1. I am thankful for my team at work. I have a store team of about 50 and a management team of 6. I don't particularly enjoy talking about work online, as it isn't really appropriate but I am so thankful for my team. Every day they are a fountain of support, and their enthusiasm never ceases to amaze me. They are my reason for going to work every day, and I count my lucky stars that I have been given the team that I have. They make the tough days better and the good days great.

2. I am thankful for my Cambridge Consultant, Claire. 4 weeks ago I started on a rather scary journey of self improvement. I found Claire, spoke to her ab…

Tis the season of the 30s

It has been a little while since I've blogged. Not for any particular reason other than I have been stupidly busy with life and work. Those of you who read my blog regularly had the joy of having to witness me going through a roller coaster few months. The good news is that the roller coaster has stopped, I have survived the ride and I am looking forward to stepping on to the next few fairground attractions! Thank you to everyone who propped me up and supported me along the way!

We are getting into the difficult time of the year now. November. Ugh, how I hate November with a passion. The only positive is that my job is so busy it keeps me distracted from all the tough days and the month moves faster than any other month of the year.

This year, the November lull has arrived in mid-October. Two of my friends turn 30 at the start of November. My little sister should be turning 30 in early November also. Today I was ordering cards and getting together their gifts for their birthdays an…

Happy 30th birthday Marguerite

Dear Marguerite,
In an alternative reality we are preparing ourselves for the weekend of a lifetime this weekend, you turn 30 on Friday! Whoop! Happy birthday little sister! Where have the years gone? I have no doubt that we would be hitting a European city for a few cocktails and a spa weekend or I would be back in Ireland for a party to end all parties. If there was one thing you could do by the tender age of 17 it was throw a party. 
I wish more than anything that we could have that weekend together. A weekend of gossip, of laughter and probably over indulgence. No doubt you would still disapprove of my style, my ability to put on make up and my hair. No doubt your insistence on getting ready for a few hours would still drive me insane. 
I often wonder what your life is like in that alternative reality. Are you a wife? Are you a mum? Are you a career driven woman with plans of world domination? Are you a wanderer with an insatiable lust to see all the world and explore it's wo…
