Lost Four Pounds! Attended Pilates! Watched Patricia Bright

On Friday my boss got bored of me talking about my eating plan and how I only used my gym for the spa facilities, so let's just say I forced to put my money where my mouth was and ended up booking five exercise sessions. Yes, hard to believe I've been with my gym for over a year and have NEVER ATTENDED A GYM CLASS. Mainly, because I like the spa and thing food reduction is the way to lose weight also just thinking of exercise exhausts me.

I needed to book them via the website but having never done it, my password failed so I rang, in front of my boss, the gym to book it. Proof. They are mainly low impact classes so nothing too strenuous or so I thought.

Come Saturday, I'm down the gym for my pilates class with all these fit, slim and trendy people. It's a 9AM class so basically like a work day for me. I thought pilates was gentle. Not. I say this having done it for about three years in a dance school - yeah I was once about twenty pounds or ten kilos lighter - and the movements were simple. This was dynamic and I worked up a sweat. There were a number of things or most things I couldn't do. Namely the plank. Really? Let's just say I was talking breathers and breaks for most of it. It was a mixed abilities class so I really lagged behind. I might have to find something else.

I weighed myself before the class and found I'd lost about four pounds from my boring eating plan. I nearly bought a piece of lush carrot cake to celebrate but the cafe was closed so I made do with cherries. The reason why diets are so expensive is because fruit is. Also got some mangoes and yes, I'm having avocados, I don't subscribe to the whole avocado is fat and shouldn’t be eaten when on an eating plan. I still eat it.

After than workout, showered and hit shopping. Did a semi week's shop, and I'll need to cook otherwise it will be jacket potato and I can't face that again. So a large curry. Also Team Christmas lunch is this week.

Afternoon

Nothing much, slept. Yes, that's now how much the pilates tired me out. I went back to bed. Then got up, did some grammar work so I'd have a better handle on my editing. Then I watched Patricia Bright on Youtube. She's sweet, cheerful and watchable. I watch her from time to time. I think I got a catch up email from youtube. A long time ago, during my reality show addiction, I used to watch all the reviews. However she was talking about her cosmetic surgery and expecting - and keeping it private.

I understand because now YouTube is Patrica's job, and not a hobby. She's also blown up as in become increasing popular and successful so now she's a media personality (YouTube and beyond) and therefore is always under public (Youtube and others) scrutiny therefore she needs a private life. She needs to keep clear boundaries between her work and private life.

Comestic surgery is so popular, however I think because she is a YouTube blogger and therefore in the public eye, doing close-up video, after video she noticed it more. She probably always wanted a bigger chest however the nature of her work made it more apparent to her, so she decided to do it. As for expecting - its private. At work sometimes you only know when the person is showing.

Patricia is a hard worker who puts lots of effort and dedication into what she does. Right now she's launching her own hairline, which had been in the pipeline for a while. She's alway been business minded and an entrepreneur at heart so this isn't just out of the blue.

Anyway after that I went to library to try and finish up a segment of the write. It's still going out but I'm also thinking about how to edit or rewrite my books - hence where learning grammar comes in.

Grammar is about clarity. Clarity - depending on what the writer wants, is key to understanding. Normally I use patterns but I want a little more flexibility in writing. Also it helps unders patterns. I guess I also want to be different. Everyone is using the same constructs since they are in the public domain. There are a lots of cheat sheets out there with patterns or words and I want to be a little different. I'm not going to be a grammarian, gosh my previous boss went to Cambridge and studied Linguistics - he must have had a hard time reading my emails. Then again he was a patient dude, however he did once say he had little tolerance for poorly written job applications and CV. Let not even talk about split infinitives.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
