Sunday Catch Up #3



So this week has been a rather boring week for me, I've mostly been procrastinating and ignoring all the work I need to do, shopping and spending money I don't have, and sitting around chatting with my girls. 

I had a lovely evening with one of my housemates and a friend who has been gone over Easter, we had nandos, and shopped and had coffee, and I even managed to stay under my calories for the day! Which was a shock after having a nandos. My other good friend came back to uni yesterday and had left her key at home so stayed at our house, this meant staying up till 2am catching up, and Im now very tired after being woken up at 7am with the boyfriend leaving to go do some work. 

This week I decided to quit sugar, and you can read about why I made this crazy decision here, and I've been doing okay, although struggling with craving sugar and having nothing to snack on. Yesterday was a bad day and I ate too much sugar, and food in general and definitely felt crappy for it. 

Im hoping that next week is a productive week, as I have lots of deadlines coming up, and very little work to show for it. I also have my first shift at work, and lots of internship applications to fill in. So I need to make sure Im not being lazy. 

I hope you've all had a lovely week, and that next week is just as great.

  1. Sounds like a good week hun! Just read your article on the sugar diet and I too answered Yes to every questions :( Perhaps I need to give this a go! Though the thought of mood swings and breaking out seems a little daunting. I hope you get on well with it! Would love to hear about your daily progress :) Best of luck with completing all the work. You'll feel so much better once it's done and dusted xxx

    1. Maybe you should! We can help each other through :D So far I haven't had any mood swings yet, and I don't feel too bad, other than some serious cravings for sugar! I'll deffo do an update next week on how I've found the first week. I can't wait to get all the work done, and then have summer free to chill out :)

    2. Sounds good to me!! I'm so bad at persevering with things :(
      With regards to your comment on my post, I'm going to Harlow University to do a 1 year NCTJ course. All journalists are required an NCTJ qualification to be employed in any newspaper/magazine job roles etc. It's favoured by employers because the qualification teaches you all the laws of media, i.e. the laws of journalism and court laws (If I was to go into reporting in a court) amongst other things. Over the course of the year I'll have to sit 3 law exams and a shorthand exam. The course is full time and on Fridays we'll have work placements, so we'll have to publish articles weekly which will go into our portfolio and will give us a great chance of getting a job. Unsure as to what I'll do after, though. I can be fast tracked into the Journalism degree there or go out and get a job. I really want to travel, so I think I might take some time out to do that and decide exactly where I want to go. I'd love to have an editorial role as I love designing magazine articles, layouts etc :) Sorry for the lengthy post!! xxx

    3. I am the worst at sticking to things I loose motivation and get so easily distracted and will justify giving in. Its terrible lol.
      And that sounds so interesting, gonna be a busy year for you! Law exams are killer, so good luck with those, although Im sure you'll do great. Thats so good that you get a work placement/publish articles, a great way to have some experience on your cv and a portfolio.
      I'd suggest a year out before going to uni, and definitely go travelling, it's the best thing ever, so much fun! I'd love to go travel, and think after uni Im going to go to as many places as possible, probably disappear off for 6 months then come back and face the real world and my huge debt! haha.
      Uni is a lot of fun as well and I really recommend it, just make sure its 100% what you want to do, because it costs A LOT! :P and you need to love what you do or it can become so boring. xx

  2. I've been in the same sort of mode this week...having the motivation constantly is quite draining...I know you decided to quit sugar which is a very great thing to do, i know i couldn't, i live on it far too much ahaha;p But dont feel down about it :) It's going to be difficult to go from lots of sugar to no sugar, so it's easy to slip back into old habits. But I think you should be proud of yourself for having done it for so long in the first place! Best of luck with applications - they're such a nightmare to fill out, and are so monotonous zzzzzzz but it'll be worthwhile int the long run :)

    Btw I have nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blog Award as I love reading your blog very much, and it is very inspirational! Don't know whether you've heard of it but here's more about it :) | lifeasapetite.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/very-inspiring-blogger-award-revision.html | Would love to hear from you :) x

    1. Thanks, I'm planning on cutting it totally out for 8 weeks, and then gradually letting it back in, but hopefully by that point I won't crave it as much :D I hope I get some motivation this week as well! :)
