I'm feeling REALLY stressed at the moment!
1) I dont know if I can afford to go to New Zealand in 2 weeks and I really want to see my family and my Dad
2) Im worrying about being able to save £3000 by September, it sounds like a long time but it really isn't
3) I have eaten loads of crap lately and neeeeeeed to get my arse to the gym and work it all off
4) My mum wants me to start paying for my horse which is fair enough but its £200 a month and Im scared I wont be able to afford it :(
5) I want to go on holiday with my boyfriend this year but even that Im doubtful about now, Im so skint!

Im posting some pictures now because I want to and thats that.

Calorie Counting Is Exhausting!!

This is a little rant about how much I hate counting calories but I do it all day every day!! Its like a crazy obsession and I have found myself usually being so spot on about how many calories are in everything, which is a bit mental!! So my boss gave me and my colleague a box of Thorntons chocolates and I had two, then had a little panic because I COMPLETELY underestimated the calories, I estimated about 30-40 in each chocolate and it turned out each chocolate has 70 CALORIES!!! wtf!!!! So I consumed 140 calories with 2 stupid (but very nice) chocolates!!! Disaster!!

I do find it pretty exhausting actually counting calories, but on the bright side, it has kept my maths skills pretty good :)

So now I have to have soup for my lunch and go to the gym later, damn really couldnt be bothered with the gym today!! STUPID BUT DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE!!!! :D

p.s. Im not mental. Really. :)

22/3/11 Stories :)

I thought I would post some topics from the BBC news today, I have started keeping quite up to date with the news and find it interesting to read everyday :)

Last speaker of ancient language of Bo dies in India

 Boa Sr

First up. An ancient language 70,000 years old in India has officially died out. It makes me wonder, if she was the last person who spoke it, who did she speak to? It says that after her parents died, she was the only person who could speak it for 30-40 years on her own. Awww.

Cat trapped in car's engine for 30 miles
This poor cat! It crawled into the engina compartment of someones car and stayed there for a 30 mile drive, and survived with just some burns to his paws :( Noone can find his owner so hes homeless too!
And lastly, I just thought it was cool that the BBC included this in the news :) as I am a big Pink Floyd fan
Syd Barratt in pictures!!
For anyone who is unfamiliar, he was in Pink Floyd at the beginning, then he went a bit mental and left and then was the influence for lots of the later songs, e.g. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (my horse is named after this song!)
He died in 2006 from pancreatic cancer. He lived on a farm in the English countryside.
