I am a financial administrator for 10 creches in the Waikato and I do it from one creche in Hamilton... anyway I have had in the last 2 years 4 bosses and I have only ever met one of them and that was the first one OMG... and they all reside up in Auckland...
So paranoid me was worried when the big big boss said her and my new boss were coming down on the Monday and are we ok with that... so my mind started thinking OMG they are going to make my job redundant bla bla bla but no it was really informative and I was quite bossy he he he well maybe not bossy but I said what I thought (in a diplomatic way he he) said I haven't had a pay rise and I went from doing the accounts for one creche to 7 and I always get my job done and no complaints so she is looking in to that WOHOOOOO.
Also said that I haven't been on any courses and she said well they are organising for all of the adminstrators from the whole of NZ to get together for a couple of nights down in Wellington or Auckland Woohooo bloody woohooo and she said it isn't all about the work but going out for dinner and having some fun so that is fantastic. I felt soooo much more relaxed after that.
So finally after two years I meet a boss instead of chatting over the phone or on email.
So my day was pretty good and then.......
I went to pick up the kids from school and I was driving in and I saw this lady sitting in her car and I thought to myself I know her (it was pissing down with rain) and so I shouted out Tracy and she looked at me strange and then she looked at her mother sitting in the other seat and said something and then just kept looking at me.... and then she clicked. I sat in the back seat talking and about 10 minutes later she said OMG I have to tell you when you shouted my name I couldn't work out who the hell you were and it took me until you sat in the car to realise who you were you have lost a lot of weight and look fantastic... OMG you could have pushed me with your little finger and I would have flown he he he it was great to have someone that hasn't seen me in a while to give me a compliment like that.
So I was on high...... until I got to my son's class and he was under the table hiding while everyone was in a circle doing their reflection at the end of the day. I didn't know what was happening so at the end when the bell went the teacher came over to me (and Corbin ran out the door) and said that he has been acting quite strange in the last week and he hasn't been his bubbly self and doesn't want to do things in reflection time and is acting not himself and she was worried (as she really likes Corbin).... so I said I would try and find out. So I had a good chat to him (took a while for him to tell me) and he said he was feeling pressured to get his literature done and he is struggling and that if he doesn't get it done then he isn't allowed to do some of the fun things on the last day of term... he said it was hard and sometimes people think I can do something but he finds it difficult...
So I will have to see what we can do to ask the teacher if we as parents can help him get back on track with the literature at home or something as he isn't liking the pressure of it.... (I know he isn't a child that mucks around so it can't be that he wasn't foccussed).
Then when we got home he wouldn't get out of the car and said he wanted to sit and think... so I let him and then a few minutes later I went back and he was crying and so I asked him what was the problem and he said that his friend Cathan is being mean to him and not wanting to sit with him and making him feel terrible. I said to him did he ask him why? he said no.... I said that friends don't treat friends like that and that if he wasn't going to be nice then he needs to go and find someone that will treat him with respect (and he said I don't understand that word) I said that someone that treats you like you would treat them and is nice to you. He looked at me and said yes. I said that you have plenty of friends and that Cathan is missing out on a wonderful friendship and that is his loss.
I mean what else do you say aye?
I hate seeing him go through this... it isn't fair that some kids can make friends and stay with them and my son wants so much to be friends and can't manage to find a nice friend that treats him right. My heart went out to him. I want him to have a best friend but Cathan isn't the one.... he can be a nasty child and goes with the people that can get him something or that is rich with lots of toys etc... it isn't something I want my child being like that is for sure.
So I said to Corbin that in the school holidays we will get some different boys from his class over and do some fun things with them... so he said he would get some phone numbers today so I can talk to the parents.
Anyway I better get on with my work.
P.S I am feeling really good about this weigh in tomorrow morning... wohoooo

Corbin was being taught but three girls... he he he and he went all shy but they were having fun trying to teach him the tummy tickle and the hug moves... he he he and I had to take a photo.
And as you can see from Quinn's little smile he was chatting up the girls again.
He learnt how to do a turn and how to twirl a girl... it was too cute.
I should have taken more photos but the flash kept coming on GEESH....
He is getting quite blaze about it all in this photo.... like he is saying "OMG I know this move give me something interesting to do. he he
Another big weekend this weekend.... trying to concentrate on getting more invitations and painting the rest of my frame up for the expo. I am soooo scared of doing this and I am procrastinating a little and I don't know why. Feeling like it is overwelming at the moment. I can't wait till the expo is finished and I can get on with the weddings etc and not have to be on show. I think that is the thing that I am not liking is the having it all on show and it being good enough for everyone to see.... and what are the other professional sites going to look like ya know.

I was feeling really sad yesterday. Because of dealing with my friend and her breakup and her kids etc and also... I know a lot of people go away from their other half's but we are hardly ever apart and I missed him yesterday.
The kids missed him last night too and I kept saying that he will be home soon. We do a lot together and for him not to be around was upsetting us all... wusses I know but that is how we felt.
I went to bed a little angry at him because we phoned him and fair enough he was in the middle of something so had enough time to say goodnight to the boys and then had to go to the dinner that the conference was having so we got 3 minutes and that was all for the boys but then I thought he would have texted last night to say good night or this morning to say good morning as we don't go a day without speaking normally ya know...
So I went to bed sad and woke up sad too thinking he was having a wonderful time and didn't miss or the kids at all.
Well got to work and then sent an txt to a friend and noticed that I had a red envelope and SILLY ME had a full in box and there were two messages from hubby... "Nighty, night, sweetie. Love ya! (I love the fact that because he is an english grad that he puts punctuation in he he he and then there was another that said "Morning Sweetie" OMG I felt bad then and send a txt to say that I missed them because my inbox was full.
He then phoned me and said that he has a huge cold and not feeling well and misses me this morning so I was crying on the phone... soppy I know but I really don't know what I would do without him... I would spend 24/7 with him if I could and it has been like that for 18 years.
I have to start getting back into reading blogs and replying and tracking... I am slacking everyone and I am in such a low and don't know how to get out of it and I am scared to write in here because I don't want to come across as a moaner so I just don't blog anymore because I haven't had anything great to say.
I am lost!!! I am lost in this weight loss!! I know what I should be doing but I am not doing it. My weekend was eating chips and chocolate biscuits and too much V and I didn't care!!!
I don't want to go back to my old habits and I keep yoyoing and can't get my mind out of it. I know I have to be positive and I have to take responsibility but don't know how as I think I have sunk too low!!
I don't have anything to aim for! I don't have anything that I want to loose the weight for (not even for me or my family)
I want to get out of this!! I am going to have a gain of at least 500 grams this week so there you go again yoyoing!!! once again!! up, down, up, down, up, down and the cycle keeps going and I do realise that is why I am not getting many comments anymore because I am not motivating when I am like this and hey I wouldn't want to read me either aye...
Breakfast: 2 toast, chopped egg
Morning tea: V 3 Ryvita Wholegrain Crispbreads, tomatoe, Lite Cottage Cheese
Lunch: Noodles and Chicken (OMG it was too much and struggled and should have left some but I didn't grrr)
Afternoon tea: 2 Mandarins
Dinner: (don't know yet)

Hubby away on a conference in Wellington... first time in years and I miss him and I am miserable!!
I am sad!!
I am sad!!
I am sad!!
I would never like to loose him because I would kill myself!!!
I am bitchy and I don't wanna be and I am eating the wrong things and I don't care!!

I didn't want to do anything actually... he he he
I didn't want to spend time doing the kids spelling in Quinn's class and I didn't want to take my mum anywhere and I didn't want to do anything to do with weight loss.
So I didn't actively do exercise or steps and my steps for the whole day were 2587 but I wasn't unhappy about that.
I got up took the boys to school, told the teacher I couldn't do the spelling today and she was ok with that. I didn't give her an excuse because I got roped in to do the spelling anyway so one week off isn't going to hurt.
I then took my lazy arse he he he and went to starbucks and sat there for an hour reading my Her Business Magazine and pad and pen and had a croissant (naughty I know) and a coffee. It was a nice relaxing time.
Later that morning I went to my friends shop and talked about the table setting with invites and wine bottle etc that I am doing for her window dress up wohooo...
Then came back and had a cup of tea with a friend and my mum at the coffee shop and picked up the boys from school.
That night was Quinn's production at school with the 5 new entrant classes. We went really early so we could get a good seat and we got the front middle and it was soooo cool to have that seat so we could see Quinn and all the others. I was sooo proud of him and he had this higher than though look on his face. So that was a late night for the boys but I got lots of photos.
Corbin woke up and was coughing and coughing and coughing so I said he could stay home as long as he wasn't watching tv all day and had to spend some time in his bed to get rid of this cold (the only reason I said that was because I was afraid he would take advantage of not being at school) this is his first day ever in the 3 years that he has been at school that he has taken a sick day so I am quite proud of him for that.
I did a couple of invitations and I left Corbin with mum and went for a walk around the lake. It used to take 55 minutes to walk around it but today I took 35 minutes and I jogged about 7 time around it (4 km) and it was 5787 steps so that was a fantastic effort on my part. I was really happy about that.
After that I came home and managed to do some more on my invites and then took off for my friends shop again to show her the wine bottle and name plates I did but the colour of them wasn't quite right so I am going to do it a lighter colour and try again. Went there to support her as there was a nasty person put in a complaint to the authorities about her advertisement on the radio about child abuse and she didn't even do the ad the radio station did and they are going to sort it out... something about it sounding like a kid was being hit OMG some people aye. They could have gone to the radio station first but no had to get lawyers in on it. My friend was beside herself and I kept telling her that she knows that she isn't that sort of person and that it will get sorted and the radio station is going to sort it out.. apparently they have to prove that it isn't a child being hit on the advertisement OMG sometimes it can go overboard as if a child would have been hurt in an ad for flowers GEESH.
I went to Davidz Emporium to get my backdrop material for my site at the wedding expo today as they had a huge sale on so I got black calico for $6 for 5 metres and I would have paid more than that at other places I was sooo happy about that and I brought some ribbon for some invitations as well... it was a good price.
Went to Rock'n Roll tonight with the boys and Corbin is getting quite good at it and with a little more practice he can go to the next step of learning the turns etc and Quinn was doing ok... he was a little silly at the start and wasn't listening. When they had a free for all this little girl (maybe a year older than Quinn) came and asked him to dance and so he did and it was sooooo cute I wanted to go over and take a photo but didn't take my camera so I didn't embarrass them he he he mean mummy I am.
So anyway that is it for me.
My steps for today are 8776 so I am happy with those steps.
Have a great weekend everyone
I am not sure if I can update as it is a full on weekend this weekend.
Love ya all

Wow what an afternoon and I am only now just sitting down.
After work I picked up the kids and took them to the doctors.. Corbin had a sore throat and headache and Quinn had and ear infection and sore throat so $35 later we have antibiotics etc.
Then took both boys to separate parks for their soccer practice and off home after an hour and get ready for the kickboxing class and wow did I work hard there and my butt and thighs are aching me as she did a butt track that blew us away.
I wish I could say that my steps were as good as ChrisH but I don't think I will ever get up to that amount (as she is a machine he he) but I am proud of what I did today....
Steps: 7,893 woohoo me (I usually do around 5,000 normally so I have been stepping up.

Hello, do you know me?
If you don't, you should.
I'm a pound of fat, And I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.
Want to know why?
It's because no one ever wants to lose me;
I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!
Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one.
So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it.
That is, until I've grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight.
Yes, it's fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, left to do as I please.
So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound." (As if that were such a terrible thing.)
For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing.
And, I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.
After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!

You guys know what my weekends are like and ever since I have been to that parenting seminar I have been spending even more quality time with the kids.... so let's see what have we done
Saturday was busy shopping with the kids getting Lego and jigsaw puzzles because we knew the rest of the weekend was going to be crappy so we organised with the kids that from Saturday afternoon till Sunday morning we would have a camp out in the lounge... so we got their mattresses from their beds and their duevets and pillow and we camped in the lounge with popcorn and chippies and drinks and we played Lego and jigsaw puzzles and watched DVD's and basically spent time in our PJ's just doing things with them. It was great and the day went really fast and they even got to stay up till around 10pm watching the rugby (as we never let them stay up past 7.30 he he but I felt generous).... half way through the rugby they fell asleep woohooo so we got some time me and hubby chatting... We also went for a walk down and back on the river as it was nice in the morning when we went.
I totally enjoyed that day doing that and spending money on jigsaws as well.
Sunday was a miserable day but it was not going to stop me doing my exercise.... so we all got our raincoats, boots, umbrellas and warm weather gear on and went for a walk in the rain... I swear the people out there thought we were completely nutty but we enjoyed it and the boys got to trample in the puddles etc so that was great. We went 6,320 steps on our walk so I was pleased with that and felt that I didn't mind spending the rest of the day doing jigsaw puzzles and watching tv... woooohooo for us. I was smiling in the rain because the boys weren't too happy we were doing it at the start but they totally enjoyed it while we were out. We did manage to stop at the coffee shop and have a hot chocolate so that made their days too.
So I am back at work today boo hoo and not feeling like I want to be here but I am and hey that is life.
As you all know I haven't been going to Weight Watchers for about a month because I have been paying for it and feeling like I wasn't learning anything new out of it and that I could do it on my own....
Well anyway a lady turned up in my office today from Weight Watchers (not the leaders just a lady loosing weight) and said that she couldn't miss the opportunity (as her company delivers the bread to our creche) and she told them that she would go and deliver it today and so..... anyway she came in to my office and said that everyone is missing me and that I am such an inspiration to her and the reason she kept going and for me not to be there is quite a downer now.
Said that she was sad to hear that I wouldn't be coming back... OH GOD now I feel quilty but happy at the same time because I didn't want to leave as I made some great friends but I couldn't justify the money either for the yoyoing I had been doing but I might reconsider as this might be the push that I needed??? She didn't have to do that and it was a nice thing for her to take time out to come and tell me that... hmmmm lots of pondering is going to be happening I think.
I was telling her about my delima with Debbie and that I felt like the competition wasn't good and I didn't want to ruin our friendship either and she said "she is such a negative person and I would much rather that you were there instead of her and that I should still be going and if the friendship was worth it then it would get through it" OKKKKKK so that made me feel like a bitch for saying it because I can lose this weight if I want to I just have to work out a way that I can not let Debbie and her competing get to me... I know it is in my head but it is hard to compete with a person that is 10 years younger and doesn't have anything stopping her because she is single with no kids etc....
I just don't know what to do. I spoke to hubby on the phone and he said the reasons that I left Weight Watchers were right and that I was spending money for nothing and that I know what to do I just have to do it and that is what we are working on at home. So now that made me even more confused... I don't know what I want to do.... sigh
I am feeling really great about the steps diet I am doing as it is a little like Weight Watchers but if I want something naughty I need to do more steps etc to make up for it and it seems sooo simple to me. But I do love the support I get from the ladies at WW too... grrrr
Anyway before I do my head in I am going to go.
I really should be blonde shouldn't I.... ditzy bitch I am.
Friday, 8 June 2007
Why am I not keeping to it? Why have I lost my mojo? Why can't I keep to anything and do it? Am I the only person that switches so much? Do I stress too much like Lyn says? I suppose I do. Sometimes I just want a plan of the day of what I have to eat and what I have to do and that is it but then I want to rebel when I have a day where I have to do and eat from a list.
Went to my PT session with Joy today and OMG it was great and I did full sit ups 30 of them Wow I used to find it really hard to sit fully up with sit ups but I was doing ok with it today. She also made me do butt lifts too BITCH he he he but it was great to get it over and done with.
Ok so my food has been errational today as I felt sooo hungry when I got back from my PT so exucse the crap today.
Breakfast: Fejoia Cereal 30 grams, Milk
Morning tea: Left over steak in the fridge (see told ya I was eating weird)
Lunch: 2 small bread rolls with chicken and salad, V
Dinner: Not sure yet
Why do I go through this? I am trying to understand how I think and why for the first half of the year I was doing so well and then what changed for me to suck at this?
I am not giving up and in the last couple of years I haven't but to stop losing is really getting to my head. While I was at my PT today I was getting sore arms because I was thinking of Kris's head while punching the punching bag and it made me feel great.
I want a challenge and exercise challenge so I was talking to Joy about it today because I am not with Lean I don't have any challenges and so I am not wanting to exercise etc because my team has disbanded over the last 6 months (Lean) because Kris joined I stopped going and about 6 of them don't go anymore either. Joy started a kickboxing class at the church up the hill from me and I was going to do that until Kris said she was doing it GEESH... am I stopping myself from going and losing out yes maybe I am but then I don't want have to deal with her shit anymore either ya know.
I am going to ask Debbie if she wants to go on Wednesday nights to Joys kickboxing and stuff Kris and if she gets pissed off that I am doing it with Debbie then too bad as well. I have to do something now for me and I do like Joy's kickboxing classes.
This coming week I am going to do the following exercises:
Tuesday: Walk with hubby
Wednesday: Joys Kickboxing
Thursday: Go out for a walk while kids are at school
Friday: PT with Joy
Saturday: Go for a walk
Sunday: Go to the gym with hubby
I am going to up my steps too and if the weather is good at work next week at lunch time then I am going to go for a walk during the week as well.
I know what I am doing I mean for christ sake I have been doing it for 2 years... I can do this aye!! I can lose this weight I have to find something that boils my blood to make me stick to it. I don't have a goal and as those of you know that have read my blog for a while I find it really hard to find a goal that makes me go for it.
I think losing 200 grams a week for me at the moment would be a goal because then I won't feel the pressure and if I lose more then that will be bonus.
So I need constant reminders my friends to keep with this!!! To eat right and exercise and stop shovelling crap in my face. My hubby thinks I am not eating enough and that is why I am gaining but I am not sure... I get lost with the WW points in regards to exercise and whether to take them all or not. I used to do so much exercise that I couldn't eat all the exercise points.
We are taking the boys to Rock'n Roll classes tonight. Corbin had a chance to check it out at school on Thursday and they gave us a pamplet and said come along so we are going to take them tonight and see how they go. I hope there are a lot of kids their ages there and we can have some fun it should be great. I do worry about Quinn a little because he can be a cheeky monkey but when there are crowds and people he doesn't know he goes all silly and doesn't listen etc and goes shy it is soooo silly.
He he he Rachel it is such a pity you live such a way away because our sons sound like they like the same thing he he he and also the seminar (or talk not sure what they call it) was put on by Parents Inc the couple up the top of the website are the ones that do the seminar. The guy is absolutly fantastic and funny but his wife is not as funny but she knows what she is talking about. Also they do the parenting magazine and I find it really informative and I have a subscription to it because they go up to teenagers in it and not like the Little treasures magazine where it is only for babies.
So I will come back on and update and tell you how the boys went with Rock'n Roll. I want to take my camera but a little scared it is overdoing it for their first time he he he but if we go back next week then I will take it.
Anyway goodnight for now
Took the boys to the Rock'n Roll for kids and I swear there was about 30 kids in this little hall and there was about 15 at the start for the beginners but my two boys were the newest that started tonight so the guy was helping them heaps and they did sooooo well. Quinn is the youngest there being 5 years old and he did well too. I thought they would be shy and not do it but they got up and started and Corbin took to it like you wouldn't believe.
There was a girl there from his school and she said she had seen him at school but he couldn't remember her. Well they partnered up while he was learning and at half time Corbin was tired and had enough and she came and asked him to dance and he said No thank you OMG when the girl went I said to him "it is very rude to say no to someone that had the guts to come and ask you to dance Corbin and it was a nice thing she did"
I said to him how would he feel if he went and asked a girl and they said no" he then realised he did the wrong thing but he still didn't want to dance. I think next week he will go and ask her... she was quite cute too he he he and for her to ask him to dance she must have thought he was good he he he what a proud mummy I am.
They both want to go back next week and I am sure they will do well. I was talking to hubby and we might go on a Tuesday night to the adult lessons woohoooo some different exercise for me and for hubby and I to do something together this is going to be sooo much fun.
Thanks for listening to me today guys it is much appreciated.
Love ya all
Thursday, 7 June 2007
Thanks guys... I do realise I do start having a mini meltdown after having morning tea's with Kris and I don't know why I keep doing that??? This time for morning tea Kris didn't bug me as she usually does and it wasn't all about her like it had been ALL the other times we had morning tea etc and to her credit she is doing really well. I do know I don't want to spend a lot of time with her anymore but I do have to see her a lot with school (as her daughter is my son's class).
My breakfasts have been really good this week and I have been not worrying about them and they have been really filling.
I had been doing soooo well until I started this 10 week challenge with myself and then with others... why do I do that to myself. I go in with all good intentions but the competition (even with myself) puts me on a downward spiral. I go the opposite way.
Thanks everyone re your comments on the bread and I have been cutting down on it for the last two days and feeling much better and less bloated so that has been a bonus that is for sure.
What a day I have had.... I didn't have time to work on my business as it was taken up by kids. This morning I tested all the kids in Quinns class with their spelling and then from 11 I was with Corbin's class as they had a belonging day. It was were lots of different clubs came to school to tell them about their clubs... there were scouts, girl guides, karate, orienteering, rock'n roll, zoo club, tap dancing, jazz dancing, table tennis.
The kids got to choose 4 activities they would like to go on and then their first two choices were chosen if they could get them in with the numbers and Corbin chose Rock'n Roll and Orienteering and so I went as parent help and it was fantastic and now we are going to the Rock'n Roll club on Friday and the best thing is that Quinn is old enough to do it too so they are starting young. I sooooo loved Rock'n Roll as a kid so having my boys wanting to learn just makes my heart skip a beat woohoooo. Told hubby about it and he said well we will just have to go on Friday night and take them and it is only $3 each a week and that isn't bad at all.
So that is exercise for the whole family if hubby and I do it as well.
Corbin loved the orienteering too and that will be good exercise for the family too as you have to walk to find the next part of the challenge so I am looking forward to that. Apparently they can go to the Hamilton gardens and they have orienteering maps there and little numbers on trees etc to find at the gardens so that will be great as a family thing as well...
Then I had to take some magazines back to my friends florist as she needed them for a wedding that she is doing and back to the coffee shop by the school for a coffee with the girls I have coffee with every Thursday and then picked up the boys from school..... OMG the day went so fast and now I am veging out because I am all kids and schooled out ya know.
So todays food is:
Breakfast: Fejoia cereal with green milk, mandarins
Morning tea: Pumpkin seeds, almonds
Lunch: 5 sushi, V
Afternoon tea: Mocha frappe (made with water, no cream)
Dinner: Soup made with only veges (homemade hmmmm)
I need to jazz up my exercise and find another group that I feel comfortable with because I am getting bored with my exercise and need to do something different. Rock'n Roll is going to be something different and something I can do with my family... also need to find other things to do at the gym to jazz things up.
Can't say I want to go aqua jogging or anything because it is too cold and I would chicken out more than go really.
Maybe a sports group but I am a little chicken to do that too... hmm something to ponder on.
Thank you to all of you offering for me to go with you down to Chris H's... hubby said he wants to go down and that we should go and get away for the weekend. I just worry ya know... I have to registrations for our cars and Corbin's birthday, Quinn's birthday 20 days later and in the middle of that my birthday and fathers day and on top of that the expo is costing a bit too he he he so too many money things in those couple of months but hey I will find a way. I really appreciate the emails and the comments because they made my day knowing what a wonderful bunch of ladies you are and so caring. Why aren't we all living in the same town aye!!! life would be fantastic with such a bunch of you in walking distance.
Went to a seminar thingy last night by parents inc on Raising boys and OMG I haven't laughed so much in my life and we had so much fun with the couple we went with. I learnt some things and I was happy that a lot of things we already did too it was great. Corbin asked Jeremy this morning "Dad what did you learn last night" and Jeremy said "That you are awesome" (I was listening to this upstairs while they were down stairs) and Corbin's voice went high pitched and said Really Dad is such a happy voice it was great to hear and Jeremy said that he was smiling from ear to ear and he had said the same thing to Quinn so my boys were in such a great mood when they heard that from their Dad. We learnt that at the seminar to say that everyday to your sons because they would love it and they did. So simple but so effective.
Love ya all

I don't go back to work till Monday and my week off is going to fast already. I don't go back till Monday but I don't want to go back at all. I have been enjoying doing my Papaya business in the last couple of days.
Today got up (didn't wanna he he he too cold and raining) and Jeremy and I took the boys to school and went in their classrooms and saw their work and did things together until the bell went.
Then we took off for the gym and to be quite honest we got to the door and I said "don't really wanna be here" and so hubby smiled and turned to go out and I said "No we are here now" we went towards the main room and OMG you could feel the enthusiasm NOT and so I said to him let's go and do the tone class OMG OMG WHY DID I SAY THAT.... Liz was doing the class and OMG she worked us like a dog and I did running and weights and sit ups and thighs and butts and calves and tummies ACTUALLY everything in my body hurts big time..... arghhhhhh.
Went shopping afterwards for food and then shopping for papers for more invitations to make for the wedding expo (which is getting toooooooo close) and then came home and painted my picture frames for the expo while hubby made such a yummy lunch. We made pasta bows with the kids yesterday so there was some left and we cooked it with shredded chicken and mushrooms and hmmmm what a lovely dinner.
Another recipe we tried today was the Weight Watchers Chilli con-carne from the Really Contented Tummy cookbook and it was done with gravy beef instead of mince and it was the yummiest chilli ever and the boys loved it too.
Picked up the kids from school and took them out for a fluffy and we had a coffee for lunch today it was nice relaxing and talking with them and Corbin was reading his book for a while soooo cute.
I have been good with food this week but with my monthly things don't look good for the scales. I am not quite getting it... and have been talking with Jeremy about it because I can't understand why I am not losing as I am not eating anything that I shouldn't and I have been having ok portions and not as big as normal and I have also been doing exercise.
Maybe my body is sooo used to what I am doing that I am not losing weight.. or maybe it is because I am contented at the moment and I like spending time on my business and not totally focussing on the food. I can't quite understand where I want to be focussing at the moment. I want to loose weight and I want to do my business but I can't seem to focus on them both... quite upset about it...
Quite a good day but went too fast aye....
Love ya all
