    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    What fits your schedule better -- Exercising 1 hour a day or being f** 24 hours a day?”

    "I don’t think there’s any excuse for women not to stay in shape. We just need to stop gorging, put on our trainers, and use some self-control. No one else is going to do it for us." Linda Barker

    “Eating crappy food isn't a reward -- it's a punishment.” ― Drew Carey

    Paleo since Apr 2012 9st 9lbs got to 8st 7lbs October 2012 and with focus,exercise and motivation have stayed below 9st since.
    Hard work and dedication pays off.No time for excuses if you really want to loss the weight.
    I can now enjoy special occasions without having to worry about what the scales will say after.
    Loving life,Loving my body.

    A game of chess centred around the lost chess set of Charlmagne with the main characters of the books as the chess pieces, interwoven with a little alchemy, the French revolution and the oil crisis of the early 70's with a love story as a backdrop.

    I'd say Ice Cream Girls is actually quite different to her others but another good one is Marshmallows for Breakfast, oh and Goodnight Beautiful is good as is My Best Friends Girl (I wouldn't bother with Chocolate Run or Cupid Effect they're not that good!) x

    yes i read marshmallows for breakfast a few years ago - thats what made me choose the ice cream girls!
    im reading "the woman he loved before" atm, i did look at the goodnight beautiful but it looked a bit confusing!

    Fingersmith by Sarah Waters is my favourite book ever.

    I read Room by Emma Donoghue recently and that was pretty good.
