Let Bookie Bootcamp (re)commence + EOTD

Great start to the year - my laptop died, so expect even more poorly edited posts than before!

What does the title mean? Well, because my blogging is random at best, I never got around to writing about my combined weight shedding/writing my first book project that I started in August.
Here is a catch up:
Between August 13th and the beginning of October I managed to shift about 19 pounds - yay! - but then came the Hamstring Hiatus, a terrible time during which my hamstring (and I) suffered the consequences of being slightly overzealous during a split stretch.
Don't do it kids, it's not worth it :(
Long story short, I have had no slimming progress since then (and put on 2 pounds over Christmas - booo) but have just had the all clear from my Physio that I can start doing proper, non-rehab-type workouts again, woohoo!! I do have to be careful though, no jumping, so no HIIT, until the pain is gone :(

I actually miss burpees.....

Writing-wise I have only done bits and bobs, basic outlines, character breakdowns, etc, but it's coming along and I fully intend to be finished in the next 6 months.

Actually, that goes for both aspects of my project.
I'm aiming to shift a healthy 2 pounds a week, so I should be 3 stone lighter by the end of June, and to write something, anything, every single day. Even if it's just a sentence.

So now to the starting stats.

I weighed 14 st 3 lbs in August. I didn't take any measurements but I was a UK 14/16
I now weigh 13st exactly, am about a 14 and have the stats:
Waist: 34
Hips: 44
Thigh: 25
Calf: 15

I may start posting food diaries, pics, etc, for accountability.
- Activity - 5 Factor Fitness preparation week day 1.
- Breakfast - Good Hemp protein powder mixed in water (bleurgh, will be trying other ways with this soon) sliced pear and berries.
- Lunch - chicken, slice of cheese with cannellini beans, spinach and peppers
- Supper - chicken, steamed new potatoes and veg with butter

Now, to follow this epic post, an EOTD!
Base: Maybelline Colour Tattoo Bronze
Lid: MAC Shroom
Socket/outer corner/ lower lash line : MAC Cranberry, blended slightly in over the lid too, and MUG Corrupt for emphasis.
Colour wash pressed lightly over it all: Napoleon Perdis pink-gold shimmer
Top liner: MUA black pen liner
Waterline: Mally Onyx eyeliner

Again, my trusty BB Rose Shimmerbrick on my cheeks and EL Double Wear everywhere else!

Please excuse the lighting, I had to use my bathroom again because there's been absolutely no sun here today!


  1. Beautiful eye make up!


  2. Your weightloss is incredible!


All comments are welcome, unless you are being mean obviously, and I read them all even if it sometimes takes a bizarre amount of time for me to reply :P
