Hey MFpals x

I thought I'd share a couple of NSV's I had yesterday!!

Firstly my family decided we should have a *Family Day* We have all been working hard and not spending anytime together something needed to be done .... Mum booked us in for 4 hours Paintballing!!

I was dreading this because you have to wear clothes you don't mind getting ruined/damaged I only have a small variety of clothes which actually fit me right now and none of these do I want ruined by paint! :(
Half hour before we are due to leave I've totally left it to the last minute and I'm rushing around having just finished doing a quick 30Day Shred Level to wake me up .... I go to the section of the wardrobe that has all the old small clothes ( I say section but it pretty much the entire wardrobe ) embarassed I pull out a pair of jeans breathe in and try them on expecting them not to pull up my thighs .. until they go past my thighs ... higher up and over noway and I manage to do them up!!
FIrst NSV right there (and I found a £1 in the pocket haha!!)

Thought I'd include the sexy overalls they make you wear!! Here's me and my Sister I'm on the left.

So we are at the venue all dressed up masks guns at the ready 40 of us get taken into the woods ... (majority of them men I think I counted 7 girls?)
Our mission is to invade the other teams camp and save Pablo the Donkey he has been taken hostage and needs us!!!
One by one people are getting shot down all you can hear is pew pew pew ... HEHE .. I see a trench ahead and I make a run for it and dive in on my ass and slide down .. my gun decided in mid jump to open up and half my ammo fell out :( proper gutted I couldn't see myself lasting long now. I keep low crawling on my elbows and knees (loving it) finally I see Pablo he is right ahead I managed to shoot out the person to the right (who happened to be my sister!!) haha I kept a low profile and checked with the Marshall what I needed to do ... do I just grab Pablo and that's the end of the game?? Do I grab him and run back to base? ... Mr Marshall advised as soon as I have him in my grasp the game is over and we win.
.... I'm happy with this just get up jump over a falling log through the tree and dive and grab Pablo Mission complete!! I win :)

I get up people to my left and right covering me jump run dive GRAB PABLO jump up and down in the air in excitement that I'd got him !!! WHILE EVERYONE who is left decides to open fire and shooooooot me! WOW what an experience I must say being shot that many times by the enemy got hit in every part of my body paint splattering everywhere my mask is covered and I just decided to run as they were not giving up .... the base was a long way away and I managed to get there without stopping (granted I was completely out of breath) lol
YOU should have seen the look on everyone's faces when they saw me take off my mask and saw I was a) Female and b) quite a large female at that!!
My parents were shocked aswell because I was one of the last people standing in the last two missions we had and they were already back at base having a drink.

I really enjoyed myself so much and for one day I forgot about being the big girl and people judging me and staring and feeling uncomfortable in my skin. I wore my Polar during the 4 hours and I burnt 2224 cals :)

Anyways sorry for rambling on too much thanks for reading and I thank each and everyone of you for the support and love each day you guy all know who you are xxx

Me and Pablo smile
