Hi there and welcome to another debt is no small matter confession, next week Friday would mark 2 months since I last shared my progress so far on this road to being debt free. I will start by saying it has not been easy but it also has not been hard, I have said this before but I thought I say it again. The easy part is that I have had a new motto since I started 'if you do not have it, you do not spend it', this has honestly worked better than I could have imagined over the last 12+ months since I took the plunge to be debt free. The hard part is having the self control and the determination to not fall off the wagon and go back into debt to satisfy a short term craving.

I mentioned in debt is no smaller matter 7 that I had just over £2000 left to pay off and I also explained my reason for not rushing to pay this off in one lump sump and instead start to enjoy life a bit more. I am not sure about you but for almost 3 years now I had worked to pay off my bills not to live a life and honestly that I think contributed to me putting myself into debt. I would work all waking days and when I got paid all the money was spoken for and nothing was in my name everything either belong to the landlord, the home bills or the debt agency nothing had my name and I was the one going 8-8 busting my backside off.

I have just over a £1000 left to pay off and I honestly feel very happy about it and if not a bit sad, I know you wondering why I am feeling sad. Over the last year or saw I had developed big time on how to manage the debt that I had and not so much how not to get back into it. I am not saying I will be jumping right back into it I am saying it will or might be just a little bit harder to stay off it. I am going to stick to my motto but I also acknowledge I am human and might fall off but for my better future I hope I do not.

Have you ever been in debt? How did you get out of it or planning to get out?

Health & Exercise Monthly Update ~ THREE

They say better late than never and I am practising that like a professor.
I made a decision over two months ago to share my health and exercise monthly updates with you and this post was meant to go live on the 28th of May but I was too tired up to even consider writing it so I thought I do that today.
Again I would definitely love to start by saying I have been hard at work but that would be fibs again. Since our last update {APRIL UPDATE}I managed to skip over to Seoul, south korea where I think I managed to lose and gain weight in at the same time. I will soon share my 'how not to go hiking post' and you will understand how I managed to achieve the lose and gain at the same time.
Whilst I was in Korea I ate all the wonderful foods I had seen in K-dramas that I think I put on a kilo in a space of 6 days but then I spent all those 6 days walking long distances up hill and added in a small 1.5km hike up the mountain. You can read about my South Korea travels HERE

Over the weekend (30/31 May) I started my Shakeology which I am absolutely loving and not exactly following to the letter but I am having my Shakeology every morning instead of my usual overnight oats. I have never used protein shakes in my smoothies before so this is quite interesting for me but since I have the vanilla flavour it's been really awesome.

The final week of May I spent so much time buying ready meals as I just moved into my new place and did not really have anything in the house but now I am stocked up and started my healthy eating journey.
I bought a blue ray DVD player but I am yet to start on my T-25 which I am excited and sacred at the same time about.

Health Stats
74Kg (was 75 kg last month)
170m height
12-14 size.

I have a long way to go to reach my target on 60-65kg but I am not a quitter I will continue to work at it.
How are you doing on your health & exercise journey?
