Project 365 2015 Week 13

I thought it was supposed to be Spring. I was looking forward to getting some more scenic photos for project 365 but the majority of this week has been filled with cold and rainy weather, this did nothing for my mood!!

It hasn't been all doom and gloom though. I had an update for Layla at playschool and she is hitting all of her targets, even though she can be a tad bossy shall we say. And I also had an update for Elise and even though she is in year 4, she is already working at a year5/6 level in all subjects, got her mums brains ;)

Day 81

Makeover time. Elise had over 6 inches cut off her hair, something I wasn't keen on doing but the smiles after made it worth it.

To Chop Or Not To Chop, That's The Question!

To chop or not chop that is the question!! It seems to have been the trend over the past year to go from super long hair to medium/shoulder length hair, atleast for the celebrities among us anyway.

Me, I've gone from long to short more times than I can count. I remember when I was around 10 years old that my hair was actually past my bum and I went ahead and chopped it all off, well almost all, I ended up with a below chin length bob. Quite extreme, something I certainly regretted after doing it.

The collage below shows a few styles I've rocked been seen with over the years. It was actually after posting my first ever profile picture on FB the other week that I started considering a change, a few friends commented on how nice my hair had looked, it's the second one down on the right on the picture below.

Protein Packed Snack Balls

Since trying to get fit, exercise more and generally just tone up my body, one thing I am increasing in my diet is the amount of protein I consume as it is great in aiding muscle building/recovery. I'm trying to incorperate this not only in my meals but my snacks too.

One of the latest crazes that I've seen is protein/energy balls. These small circular snacks can be made in all sorts of flavours, are generally low in calories and certainly pack a punch when it comes to the amount of protein they can contain.

LeapFrog's LeapReader Junior Review

I've always maintained that reading books is important no matter what age you are. My children have had books read to them from the moment they were born. The skill of reading itself is one learnt over time and it certainly isn't a bad thing encouraging this early on. The LeapReader Junior from LeapFrog is a reading aid which definitely helps with this.

We're Going On a Bunny Hunt

Easter, we're all thinking about it, I mean you can't miss all of the Easter eggs stacked up in the supermarket aisles. They've been there since Christmas was over. One thing my girls love is a good Easter egg hunt, their Grandad sets them one up yearly in his garden, but this year Lindt have very kindly provided us with the tools to create our very own gold bunny hunt.

BFF Journal Review

We all remember when we were young and had best friends, sharing those necklaces etc that came in halves, you know the ones right? Well I was recently sent something that seemed to be for the modern day best friends, a BFF journal filled with questions and answers.

What five songs would you put on a playlist for your bestie's rockin birthday bash?

Would you rather have a constant weeklong case of the sneezes or the hiccups? What would you each come up with if you sketched what you look like when you roll out of bed in the morning? Take turns filling out this special journal for best friends and find out! 

This books is practically overflowing with quizzes, questions and prompts about all your favourite subjects, music, love, family, school, friendship and so much more! When you're done you'll have a unique keepsake filled with words and pictures about you and your BFF to save and treasure forever.

Straight away just from looking at the cover you get a sense of fun with gorgeous patterns and vibrant colours drawing you in.

Weekly Weigh In 24.03.2015

Almost a quarter of the way through the year and I'm still sticking with this whole weight loss thing even though I don't feel like any big changes have happened so far.

I was talking to my husband the other day and I said despite not really changing my body, I actually enjoy the lifestyle I've taken on. The healthier foods are far tastier, I'm cooking a lot more fresh foods and being more adventurous with my recipes and most days I actually look forward to doing some exercise.

Weighing in this week, I was scared to step on the scales as my period is trying to make an appearance so I was expecting a couple of exra pounds to go back on but surprisingly I lost 1/2 a lb.

My measurements altered slightly on the waist, putting on 1/2 an inch but my hips are still the same
slightly disappointing but I'm using the excuse of bloating!!
