Woooooooooooooo hooooooooooooooooooooo!
Conga Line!!!!

We totally kicked ass last night! Praise the Lord! Alleluia! Alleluia, Amen!

To recap, I work for a Marketing Dept in a Further Education college in London. So last night was our Oscars so to speak. We were up against other colleges and big big universities (whose marketing and PR budget is nearly 10 times our own).

So for the three entries we were nominated for we won awards in all three! Wooo hoooooooo! You have Gold, Silver and Bronze. So we won Gold in a tough category where we were the only college and 9 flipping universities! When they called our name our table went nuts! Could not believe it! So that was for Integrated Regional Campaign. We won Bronze for Print Media (very happy I had to write the nomination entry, 2500 of full blown English) and our boss won Silver for Marketeer of the Year.

That's how we carried one trophy and three plaques to work today (but we came in late shah, we left the venue at 12.30am). That validation feels soooooooooo good, especially as it is a UK wide competition. Sooooo PARTY OVER HERE!!!!!

Ironically we had the dinner and awards ceremony at the Royal Courts of Justice and I thought 'this is the closest my Dad is ever going to get me in court' LOL.

In other gist since I have joined Fatbusters I will change my weigh in day to coincide with their own so I weighed myself this morning and guess what...I had lost 1kg !!! Even though it's not yet a full week!

Freaky Bridesmaid Diet/Week 5 = 1 kg

I need more exercise, so went to get a new sports bra. Gosh it was so complex. They had grades for different strengths of bra. 1 - 5 Imagine! There was a chart at the back of each packet, the type of complicated chart that Danny B would love. Eg If you are 32C and want to do yoga then level 1, if you are 34B and want to horse riding (gini?) then level 3 etc etc! Na wa oh! I spent time in that store scratching my head for real. The worse part is that poor me 36F, everything apart from gentle stretching was Level 4, Level 4, Level 4! Foolish and ingredients!

So that is how one sports bra was £28! Lord have mercy! I didn't have a choice oh! Have to get one before you are doing kickboxing lessons and your chest nearly takes out your eye all in the name of losing weight!

Please pray for me oh, I have two places I need to be tomorrow one is in Luton, one is in London, no car, just trains and my leggedes benz. It's loooong man! Chai! This time next year I am driving , na aha Jesu Kristi, Amen!

  1. Cool.. good for you then.. Your team must be full of overacheivers to do all that on a shoe string budget..

    You lost 1 kg! Cool.. Er so what have you done differently this week? You know I am collating best practices for my own assault on the bulge!!!

  2. CaramelD Says:

    Doing what i have been doing since Oga, 80% protein, 20% Carbohydrates. water, water and more water. If I can step up my exercise then I will be laughing all the way to the bank. Like I said before you just prob need a bit more exercise. Do you drink beer? Beer is a gut killer for real.

  3. CaramelD Says:

    PS DannyB, how quick were you to catch this post by the way? You dey sleep?

  4. LOL.. Only 10.30pm.. Still early days in my world! And no i don't drink anyhtinng stornger than coca cola -- which is probably bad too!!!

    P.S. The post was actually meant to look at the humourous side of the bulge fight.. Its not quite as serious as i madeit out to be o!!!!!

    GO! Team Caramel!
    Good stuff.. I bet the sense of fulfilment is overwhelming..

    So are you coming off the Freaky Bridesmaid Diet and doing a FatBusters one instead?

    And this your 80% protein & 20% carbs.. is that like a bowl of cow leg, beef, ponmo, and things.. with one loaf of wholemeal bread?

  6. CaramelD Says:

    No no no, Mr Roc, I am still on FBD but I have joined the Fatbusters competition. No matter what happens there this chic is in for the long haul. There is nothing as lovely as sitting at me desk and pinching the flappy material now on my trousers :)
