Cambridge weightplan update........

I started on the plan with the intention of losing a lot of weight, I ate so much the day before, McDonald's, crisps and dip, chocolate......I was very unprepared.
Four days in to the plan I felt like rubbish, I thought "oh well this is what it's supposed to be like"!
By day five I all I could think of was eating, I was snappy, moody and all I wanted to was sleep.
On day six I gave up, I thought I would feel really guilty but I don't, the plan works for a lot of people and so many have had great success on it. They have maintained it for a long time and live healthy, happy lives.
I would promote this plan and say yeah give it a go, but don't make the mistake like I did of thinking it will be an easy ride because it's not.
It is not a plan for me, I thought I could do it but it's just to extreme, going from eating everything to nothing in the space of a day was to much for me.
On Wednesday I went to my first ever Weight Watchers meeting..Oh my gosh I have only been on the propoints plan for three days but it feels like I have finally found the right diet for me.
I have not felt hungry at all for the past three days, I have felt energetic and happy.
I will keep you up dated as the days go on, but I am optimistic that this time I will be a stone lighter by Christmas at least.

My top 4 uk YouTube beauty guru's.....

I love YouTube, I love watching music videos, viral hits like charlie bit me and the sneezing baby panda but my favorite videos to watch are the beauty guru's.
For someone who loves make up but can't apply eyeliner for love nor money the guru's have been my saving grace, they teach you in an ordinary way how to apply beautiful make and wearable make everyday.
So here are my top 4 UK YouTube beauty guru's and why....

4. Plink278.
Plink278 real name Jessica is such a beautiful girl but so normal, she tells it like it is and shows a passion for beauty and fashion, she does great tutorials like her Nicki Minaj moment 4 life tutorial which was beautiful and she has amazing hair!!

3. Pixi2woo.
Real name Tanya Burr aka pixi2woo is a great youtube beauty guru because you can see that she has a real passion for what she does, she is a professional make up artist and you can tell, all her tutorials are very well put together, she makes it look so easy and most of the time it is because she has showed you how to apply the makeup so easily.

2. Swalkermakeup.
Sara walker is a 19 year old beauty blogger and YouTube beauty guru, I stumbled upon her videos one day when I was looking for a fake tan application tutorial and she had uploaded one, from the I watched all her videos.
Sara is so down to earth, on trend and very good at youtubing, she has two channels one is her beauty channel and one is a vlog channel, I love the vlog channels from the guru's because its nice to see in others lives. With a mix of tutorials, vlogs and hauls her channels really are excellent.
I loved her Velcro roller tutorial, she made it seem so easy to do and actually I did it after I watched it and my hair looked really nice.
Swalkermakeup is also on twitter and has a blog using the same name.

1. Pixiwoo.
I found pixiwoo about two years ago and I have been an loyal subscriber ever since.
Pixiwoo aka Nicola and Samantha Chapman are professional make up artists they have worked with some amazing beauty brands and are truly amazing at what they do.
From drag tutorials to beautiful first date makeup looks they execute every video so well and in a simple but informative way, they are lovely people and you feel that if you ever had your make up done by them they would make you feel so beautiful and relaxed.
In my opinion Sam is more passionate about the old school looks and the high end fashion model looks that are perfect for a night out whereas Nicola's looks are more about current celebrities such as Cheryl Cole and she just did the Adele Vogue cover look which was amazing, her looks are a bit more mainstream and wearable for everyday.
They also have a vlog channel called Pixiwoomadness which has some 10 minute tutorials featuring Avon cosmetics which they also have on the Mirror website.
All in all pixiwoo are an amazing beauty guru channel, the ladies take in to account what comments they get and what their subscribers want to see, featuring over the top, gorgeous look for a special night out or a elegant dainty look for a first date they have done it all and I would encourage anyone who has a passion for makeup and wants to learn new techniques to check them out.

Cambridge weightplan Day 2.

As you may know from an earlier post I was planning on starting a diet called the Cambridge weight plan, well yesterday I started it.I had my first meeting to see my lovely Cambridge counsellor Lisa, she gave me so much information about the plan and I feel really encouraged, you have 3-4 packs a day depending on your height and gender of either porridge, shakes or soups and after two weeks bars on the sole source plan which is what I have started on.
It is very low calorie 415 to 554 calories to be exact and you to drink a lot of water about three litres a day, but it is for people who like me conventional diets don't work or more like me have not got the determination to do them.
Ok so my first day was yesterday and it was ok, I had two mint chocolate shakes and a cappuccino shake which were not to bad at all, in fact the mint chocolate shakes were really nice I had three litres of water and 2 cups of mint tea, I will admit that I felt hungry in the evening when I would normally have dinner but I busied myself by reading Heat and Look magazine and dreaming of wearing all the amazing clothes in a smaller size.
So I woke up this morning and I feel good, I have a little bit of a headache and I feel cold but apart from that I am doing ok, I have had a strawberry shake for breakfast and its not bad, hopefully the rest of the week will go just a smoothly.
I will keep you updated throughout my time on the plan and if anyone has any experience of it feel free to contact me.
