Project Lu: Phase two.

Today I begin phase two of Project LU.

I am nearly two weeks off cigarettes and I feel great. Really truly great.
I won't lie. The last two weeks were tough.
I decided that I was going cold turkey.
Well, it was more that I decided that I was going to quit. And just did.
So there was no time for any quitting aids.
Though I'm much happier that I have done it this way.
As a result, I didn't sleep for three nights.
I had a headache for about two days.
I had two days of nausea.
It was awful.
The positives are obvious:


My skin is much better
I'm sleeping better
I have so much more energy.
So much, I ran the other day. I RAN!!!
I ate lots of chocolate and cheese.... 
oh wait... 
That's not a positive, is it?

What a cunning link into phase two...
Phase two is where I cut out the chocolate and cheese and replace them with healthier options.
It does mean that I will be a grumpy bastard for the next week but I have so much going on over the next few days that I will be quite distracted!It is also the phase where I cut out fizzy juice and replace it with water... My skin will be squeaky shiny by Christmas!

I also now have a friend who wants to take dance lessons with me. How super is that?! It seems as though all my plans are falling in to place! I just need to find a golfer who'll take me to the driving range for some pointers!



The next twelve months are going to be life changing. I can feel it in my bones!I have heard it said many times that you can't rush these things. You have to be in the right frame of mind. I guess I am just in the right frame of mind! 




I'm looking forward to bringing project LU to life. I hope you enjoy coming along for the ride.

Farewell 2017! Farewell!

Where did 2017 go? Is it just me or did 2017 just fly by like a whirling dervish? Tomorrow we celebrate Hogmaney in all its glory and I can't wait. I am leaving 2017 on such a high, and I can't wait to see where 2018 takes me.
I got an email today from myself. It was an email I sent to myself 5 year ago via a website called www.futureme.org . You should go and have a look, it is a very peculiar thing to send your future self an email. Anyway, I digress. The email told me where I hoped to be five years ago. Some of it I have done, some of it I have not but what I found very interesting was how my perception of happiness and contentment have changed in the last five years. That got me thinking. It is amazing how much my perception of happiness and contentment have changed in the past year!

2017 was for me a year of growth and a year of self discovery.
I feel I found myself a lot this year. I found comfort in myself and a confidence in my capabilites.
It was a rollercoaster year …

Day 2 - 20 facts about me

I always struggle with challenges such as these, where I have to give some facts about myself. Can I think of 20 things and if so will they be any good? Pressure! Well... here goes....

1. I love letters. Not bills and what not, I mean real, news filled letters. I have a handful of people whom I write to, and they write back in return. Alas, I am not very good at replying in a timely manner! I have had penpals since I was about 11 years old. Two of which were from Belarus. Their names were Tatiana and Irena. One of the highlights of their letters were the wee boxed stationery that they used to write on. I loved it so much.
2. I dislike sheep. Immensely.
3. I have 2 tattoos. One of a fairy, and one of a fox.
4. I love ducks and foxes. And Hairy Coos.
5. I think puns are severely underrated.
6. My favourite book is Jane Eyre.
7. My favourite author is more difficult... maybe Jasper Fforde... though the compilations of Irish tales by Sinead DeValera have a special place in my heart as do …

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…
