I'M BACK!!!

HELLO EVERYONE!! YES, I'M BACK AND I'M ONLY AN AUL BITCH FOR NEGLECTING MY BLOG! 

After taking a well deserved break to focus on my new job in Nandos and new body goals I decided its most definitely time to get back into blogging!

So, what have I been up to?

After being in a jobless rut for almost 4 years, opportunity came knocking and I bagged myself an amazing job. I now work in Nando's Tallaght, Dublin. 
I am so so lucky to be a part of an amazing team, this is where I spend the majority of my time, so I apologise in advance if some of my post's are uploaded at weird times.
If you live around tallaght come in, say hi and I'll serve you some chicken ;)

I've also been way more focused on my weight loss recently.
Looking back at old photos just made me realise how much I had let myself go. I was stuck in a rut with no way out. I was jobless, In a happy,comfortable relationship,with no aims or goals in life, slightly depressed and living for the weekend, which lets face it, wasn't all that great in the grand scheme of things. 
I decided I do NOT want to be that person who looks shite, feels shite and lives shite. I did not want to fill my boring days with Facebook & junk food, and I CERTAINLY did not want to drink every weekend, weather it be in town or a friends house. It all became the same, and it all got boring REALLY fast! 

Something clicked in me and reality struck ''I'm nearly 25, I really need to start looking after my health, my metabolism is only going to start getting worse and worse and I'M the only person who can stop it''
Now, 5 months on I have very proudly lost just over a stone a half!
I am in shock! I haven't felt this great in a very very long time. My confidence has grown, my tummy is getting smaller, I have more energy and my clothes fit better! Not to mention I'm sleeping like a baby and my skin hair and nails and in great condition!! 
I decided to go out and buy a bikini in Penneys for my upcoming holiday to Portugal! I took a selfie and placed it next to a bikini picture from last year, well I could have died! I am SO proud of myself for coming this far and I had zero idea I looked THAT different 
And this is ALL down to Slimming World.
It has truly changed my life around. I still have some ways to go yet but all good things come to those who wait....and diet 

I will be posting more and more stuff up about Slimming world as well as body confidence and my usual beauty posts :)
