Missing some bloggers at the moment - Andrea, Cat, Rachel, Sarah, JRD - thinking of you all - don't know if you're reading, but hope all's well.  LOVE!

It felt really good to get that last post out.  It was good and felt really positive compared to a lot of the negativity of late.  I haven't bought binge foods for the last four days now.  That's not to say I have eaten all that well, still had some things like ice cream and kitkats at home, but the I haven't spent the last 4 evenings surrounded by my chocolate and my sweets in binge quantities like I usually do.  This is a huge achievement. The evenings need to change from binge fests, to relaxation without food.  I am full after dinner, I don't need to eat.  So the habit needs to change.  And so far I'm doing that.
I've got a cold (though it's getting better) so haven't run for 6 days, but hopefully will get back to it tomorrow.

I'm on my eighth hour of learning to drive, it's going well but is stressful and scary (it's all manual/stick shift over here don't forget!)  I'm having about 4 lessons a week.

I realised that in my last post I mentioned that one of the things I like doing is researching and watching programs on hoarding but didn't explain this.  Once my degree is over (less than a month, people!) I plan to set up my own business as a professional organiser/declutterer with a focus on hoarding and life/home organisation.  I am very organised, love cleaning and organising, creating functional systems for the smooth running of home and life.  It's all very exciting.  It's the first time I've really felt motivated and excited about a potential career that is at the same time realistic (compared to previous plans of being a rockstar or A-list actress).  Just thought I'd clear that up in case you thought I was a hoarder (I'm the opposite, in fact).

Must dash.  Love xxx


  1. Love your plan to help others...you will be fulfilled even on challenging days! Proud of your progress, too!

  2. So glad to hear you sounding so good. :-) Wow...less than a month from your degree..SO EXCITING!!

  3. I think I could use you at my house! I have so much stuff to get rid of! Have fun driving! How exciting to hear you are almost done with school!

  4. Love that! I've often thought I'd like to be a professional organizer too. My family members ask for my help with that all the time. But none of them are willing to do the first step - get rid of stuff!

  5. I love the idea of getting organized but I can only do it when I'm in the mood...I think if it was my job I'd probably hate it! Maybe I can hire you... :)

    Good job with not bingeing--it can be hard! And it always sets into motion a downward spiral, which leads to more eating, and being disappointed in yourself, and all other manner of things that just aren't good for us!! Sometimes all I need is a serious pep talk or something to motivate me and I can snap out of those slumps

  6. Thanks for the shout out - I've been MIA, it's true! I just posted, though *ducks head in shame*. I am so glad to hear about your awesome career focus. I am so with you on the de-cluttering thing - what an amazing, powerful gift you can give people. Sending you hugs love - you can finish this degree in a month, no sweat!!!! I believe in you!
