My name is Stacie-Mai and I am a nailbiter!!

I have a horrible horrible habit.


I have forever been trying to stop, I let them grow a bit and then I see a tiny peel, chip or a bit that isn’t straight and I try to fix it and two minutes later the nail is gone!!

I have been good and dramatially reduced my biting, A few nails have then suffered but as of now My habit is not as bad. (Touch Wood)

I start a new job next Monday and It will be really unprofessional and embarrassing to be seen with my horrid nails, not to mention seeing lots of different people everyday it would not make me come across as a clean person!!

I have purchased this (half the price than it is in Boots, Thank you to the creator of Ebay!!)

To be applied every other day, should see and improvement in 5 days!!

My nails aren’t great now but I’m sharing my progress with you whilst trying this nail polish.

I put the first coat on yesterday, it smells like normal nail polish but quite strong, paints on as clear transparent nail varnish, you can’t hide you’re wearing polish as it is shiny, but clear.




After a Day my nails look healthier due to the shine. Shine is getting slightly duller, maybe due to the product soaking in.

Although I do have one question for all those who have nice nails, what do you to tour cuticles are they suppose to be pushed back or let grow forward along the nail? When my nails are long enough I will treat myself to a manicure but until then I don’t know what to do the cuticle??

Updates soon!!

Diet Week one….here we go

OMG having visitors over resulted in a 1kg gain…. 
This is my highest weight since 2011.


Breakfast: this involved a weight watchers lemon yoghurt – WOW This tasted exactly like the icing on those Mr Kipling Lemon sponge cakes!! Delicious!!

Lunch: the shop didn’t have the wholemeal wraps but the nearest thing was best of both wraps so I had four of these, with diced ham (needed using up) then two had diced cucumber (I am not a fan of cucumber!!) and the other two had shredded carrot. Only 3 eaten as was too full.

Dinner involved the chinese style chicken noodle soup, I forgot to take pictures butit was   yummy, however I will NOT be putting spring onion in next time as I really do not like it. The chicken in the soup I fried off before adding to the soup and added the Heinz (fish free) Worcestershire Sauce and it was actually really flavourfull!

However I do have a picture of me making the soup!

I was also a tad naughty and ate my last wrap from lunch! No point in wasting it is there !?!


I was off work today, I am still suffering from being ill so I had a slight lie in, then had to run to the post office to collect a parcel before it closed and I completely forgot breakfast.

Lunch involves four ginger biscuits!! My sugars were low from running around and not fueling myself, a mistake I won’t make again!!

Dinner was my roasted veg soup, I went for the first batch I made whilst the wife took the second  batch. Mine was lovely, the wifes’ was way to Parsnip flavoured, meaning I need to cook more veg to add to it as we have another two portions of it!! I had two kingsmill wholemeal thins with a bit of butter (these are also clogging up the freezer) Dessert was a strawberry weight watchers yoghurt, this was also really nice and low calorie compared to other yoghurts!! Will definitely carry on buying these!!


Yoghurt thrown in bag for breakfast, didn’t get a chance to eat it!! Work waits for nobody, my job doesn’t involve an office or sitting down in order to eat.


Lunch was KFC!! Sometimes workmates and work location mean you grab what is available!! My lunch for today will last until tomorrow!!


To be continued!!

Plan B going well …….. so far

So plan B is full steam ahead!!

We have made

My roasted veg soup in four VERY LARGE tubs ready for freezing.

Chicken noodle soup in two large batches for either freezing or for tomorrow evening, we haven’t quite decided as of yet.

Two portions of chicken in a smoky barbeque sauce, this will also be frozen.

More soup is to be made at some point soon.

Plan B….

So I haven’t been very goal orientated lately, even after my last optimistic post.

I have been hit by some sort of cold/infection/chesty type bug so had to cancel yet another hospital appointment with my Gynecology Consultant. 

I have rearranged the appointment and I have just under 4 weeks to get my BMI from its current 37.6 to a first goal of 35 but with an ultimate goal of 30 for the complete go ahead for my fertility treatment. 



Me and the wife have sat down and planned our meals for the week ahead. I will also be undertaking these 30 day challenges through apps and attempting to undertake extra exercise. 

This is my last week to get organised before I start my new job! So lots of change this month set to happen!

The new filofax is purchased and on its’ way!!

For the sake of my sanity and moving on in life, I need children! I need a family. 

I have to get my act together!! And keep it together. With NO TEMPTATION.


Be prepared for recipies and lots of food pictures! Yes it may be annoying and you may not like people that upload images all the time but please remember this is how some of us motivate and feel like they can help others in similar situations.
