Finally finished university!

After a long, long slog this summer I am finally done :) weight loss was put on hold for a while as I had to do a lot of sitting down and a few all nighters which meant mostly ready-meals, followed by a wedding in Scotland this weekend (think cake, takeaways and 7 hour car journeys!).

However I weighed myself this morning and am seriously shocked that I have only gained a pound since going AWOL - the amount of cheese and cake I have eaten is astronomical!! It was so nice to go out for lunch today and not worry about wasting time, I had a chicken salad and red thai curry soup which was heavenly and very nutritious.

Hope everyone is having a good day, so excited to get back on track and get back on here more often. x
