I am sore

I was disgusted by what my scales this week will be saying because I can feel it in my undies (ewww I know I know) but they feel tighter and it might be to do with my monthly but I am not happy that Wellington and my bad food habits caught me up he he he... so I started off really well this morning and had my 3 weetbix with milk and then went to the gym.

Debbie went to the gym with hubby and I today and it was just the best work out I had had in ages. Because we are only 3 or 4 kilos apart in weight it felt fantastic to be there with someone that knew what I was about and how I felt...

So we
  • did 10 minutes on the bike to warm up and then
  • 1500 metres on rower
  • 10 minutes on cross trainer
then went downstairs to the new womans gym that they have arranged (instead of our lovely spa pools) and they set up the woman's gym like Curves gym where you do it for about 15 or 20 minutes on the circuit and it is a good workout... well Debbie and I decided that twice around was what we were going to do and we did the following:

Now every machine for 45 seconds doesn't sound like long but OMG it is when you have like 2 seconds break between the next machine:

  • Inner thigh machine
  • Sit ups
  • Cross Trainer
  • Arm push ups (not sure what they are called but machine pushing the bar up with weights)
  • Spin Bike
  • Leg Extensions
  • Cross Trainer
  • Arm pull downs
  • Spin Bike
  • Leg push outs
  • Spin Bike
  • Arm push outs
  • Outer thighs
  • Cross trainer
  • Laying on tummy lifting calf muscles up with weights (for the butt)
  • Spin Bike

and then repeating all the above again WHEW!

OMG was I pumped after that but I could feel that my muscles are only just getting back after having a week and a half off arghhhhhhh.

After lunch hubby wanted to mow the lawns and told me I had to go for a walk...OMG what did he think I was doing at the gym this morning (he was there btw)... ;-)

He said that I needed to get out from the kids and him and have some time so I walked up to Chartwell which is about 3km's away and when I got there I was exhausted and think that that was too much exercise for one day as I wasn't feeling that good... it doesn't help when the monthly is here and I feel fat and ugly.

Now girls I have 4.5 kilos to go till I am in the teens he he he he the TEENSSSSSSSSS so I have to get my A into G and look at my food.

I know I have my exercise sorted but that dreaded food is driving me insane!!! I just don't want to eat the good stuff and it is a problem...

Suggestions please!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am bored with the food I have been eating and need to find other recipes so if you have any can you email me on mandienz@yahoo.co.nz and I will try them out. I suppose that is the great thing about having this passworded I can put my email on here and not worry because you are all friends.

Ok so Kate and Jaxx are both doing the 101 things in 1001 days and I started one on the 27th September but I must admit I am not going as fast as Kate is through them but hey it is all good. I am inspired by both these ladies and the things they are doing that I want to improve myself too and see if I can do it. So if you want to check out what I am doing go here.

I didn't post this last night as I went out to the movies and dinner with Debbie and another Lean friend Delwyn and my hubby... it was a great night and it made it all the more real that I should stick to friends that treat me with respect...

We saw stormbreaker and I must say I wasn't that impressed with it. It was ok but in some parts it was rather cheezy he he he.. but we went to a Thai restaurant for dinner and had so much fun and talked and laughed and it was interesting and the time went soooo fast.

Anyway signing off for now.

Love ya all
CM

Hi I am just catching up on all your posts from the last few days. I can understand why you are so upset with Kris, as far as I am concerned it was just downright rude of her. I do not know her & I do not like to pass judgement on others especially those that I do not know but I find that sort of thing totally unacceptable, if you make a commitment to someone then you honour that, you do not blow them off cos you think you got a better offer (which I doubt she did, PTA probably only asked her cos it would have been rude not to). It sucks when you lose friends but then you have so many more people in your life who appreciate you & treat you with the respect that we all deserve. Think of the fun you had in Wellington & last night.
