Take a deep breath.... and go!

So I have decided to take on a new adventure....

This last year has been a whirl wind, infact, the last 2 years has been! It was 2 years ago to the day that I posted up about Baby O coming into the world!

So I have decided to capture life in an old way for me, but refreshing the way I used to love documenting it.... via a vlog....

These wont be daily vlogs as I work some days and you wouldn't get much content out of it, so I am going to make the most out of my 'Mummy Days' and video the fun little man and I (and Daddy when he's around) have.

I mean, who wouldn't want to see pictures of us enjoying icecream?!

See the stories and adventures behind our Sunday Selfies?

Him just climbing on every bit of furniture?! (And his weird dress code that he sometimes has)

Him outside and enjoying the sun

Enjoying fun out in the park

His gorgeous smile?

Little man trying to eat his feet?

His cheekiness?

Him looking sooo cute whilst fast asleep...

And him copying his Daddy trying on his watches....

So watch out, soon there will be a link with my new video... it could turn out brilliantly or it could turn out a disaster - well they do say not to work with children or animals!!

If you have any requests on what you would like us to do or for us to film, or any questions, ask below!

Have fun. Love, Mrs O xxx

Pins and Needles

Ok, go with me with this title, it'll soon become clear!

(Also, a mini warning as I have used one sentence that may be a little graphic so sorry in advance)

So I know you shouldn't wait for it but a shock of reality hit me this weekend. As you may or may not know, I've been trying on and off since January to get back into WW since being on 'Maternity Leave' from it (!) but life has thrown me so many obstacles. I've been on and off the 'Weight Watchers Wagon' for what seems forever. I mean, if you buy the magazines, have a few good days and then eat it all back on again then you still loose weight. Right?... Oh and when life chucks those bad times in, it's fine to mess all that progress up again? Hello! Emma! Wake up! NO!

So that was it. My body had had enough of all my bad and rubbish that I was putting into it. So....
This weekend after a really really bad week of food my body caved in and has either given me awful food poisoning or something worse. Thanks body! Great timing as my first real Mother's Day. (Yes, I know, Baby O was around for the last one, but I had just spent a week in hospital with him. My lovely beautiful baby was very seriously ill. My head was everywhere and Mother's Day felt just like another day, although a day where I could show off how my precious bundle was so strong and was on the road to recovery.

So, whilst with my head down the loo this weekend (told you it was a little graphic) I swore to myself that I will get back on track with WW. I never wanted to put my body through what it was going through ever again.

So here it is. My pledge to myself. (Yes, selfish time here, but it's not just for me that I need to loose the weight. I don't want to be 'that Mum' that Baby O is embarrassed of. I want to be a healthy example to my little boy. Show him how life can be lived. Life lived to the full.) Anyway, back to it....
I swear to stick to WW no matter what life throws at me.

There said it.

So now after a weekend of eating basically nothing, a line under it has been drawn and I shall get back on track. I've gone through my old Instagram pics (@missemm4) and spurred myself on. I'm also back on here. This blog writing stuff helped me so much. It stopped me picking up food in my spare time and made me write instead! It's also a space to be honest with myself and whoever seems to read it.

Honesty and reality status. Done!

So just like when we get pins and needles in our legs.... Your legs go dead. Then you feel them again. You know you're standing but you can't quite believe it. But then you need to take a step. You don't think you can do it. You don't think it's possible. But you know it's possible. You just need to take the first step.

Speak soon! Love, Mrs O x
