We were like 20 steps from the lake and what a beautiful sight from the caravan in the morning from our bed.
The only thing I didn't quite like was the long drop ewwwww... we have a portable toilet (for number one's only) but if we wanted to do anything else we had to go to the long drop NOPE NOPE NOPE.
The boys loved the lake... and so did I. I went for 2 swims and even got Jeremy in there (he doesn't like how cold it was he he).
Below is the FIL and MIL's House bus that they will be living in permanently from end of this year they think... It is a beauty in side with shower, toilet, little lounge and double bedroom. So nice. The kitchen was lovely too with oven and big fridge etc. On the outside there is even a BBQ that comes out of the side he he he (a picture further down with Quinn cooking off it).We went for a 45 minute bush walk through to the next camp ground it was a beautiful walk and FIL was showing the boys some plants and their names etc it was great.
When we got back from the walk the friends of the FIL and MIL had their granddaughters and family turn up so the boys had fun playing with the two little girls. The little girls got upset when they had to leave as they were having so much fun.
Quinn below cooking on the BBQ. Little monkey.
Now don't we look relaxed. The caravan was from the friends of FIL and MIL and Jeremy is taking the photo from our caravan. We made like a little circle to make a cosy camp ground. And we had a couple of drinks too he he he.

I don't normally do it but have been weighing myself everyday this week because I need to get back on track then I will go back to normal weighing but I am on track and I feel soooo much better. I have lost 1.2 since Saturday and feeling sooooooo happy about it. I am down to 119.6 kilos.
Been conversing with the yahoo group and another group that I have joined because I read back on my blog and I was doing better when I was chatting with people in the same situation and then I dwindled off and wasn't so... that is my aim to get back to it as it motivates me and keeps me going.
I have been tracking with hubby at home and it is going really well too..
I am going to do this.
40.4 kilos (1.2 kilos this week) down 19.7 kilos to get to my goal of double digits.
Was thinking this morning that my wrist is going to be full of charms he he he. I have the two charms so far and if I have to loose 19 kilos just to get to the double digits then I am going to have 19 more charms woohoooooo will just have to put on another bracelet and have two of them he he he.
I have to experience what it is like being 99 kilos... I just have to and I need to keep my motivation going. No more excuses and I am going to help me first!!! Encourage me FIRST and not put me second anymore.
Putting my exercise on the sidebar too and what I have done and what I have planned for the coming week. Working within my weigh in weeks and then start again for the next week.
Had a fanbloodytastic chat on the yahoo group with Libra last night and in the end we went on a chat line because we were going back and forth he he he... it was fantastic because there were soooo many things that we have done similar and books we have read and I felt really relaxed talking to her.. it was nice Libra thank you. I really appreciated it last night... believe me you have given me the get up and go to get off my backside and keep on this. Thank you... Thank you...

Was in a bitch of a mood... and I think it was because I didn't like the thought of having to go back to work on Monday...hmmmm grrrrrr.
Went to the gym and worked my butt off but I get the feeling that people just don't want to see me running on the treadmill because I do a 5 minute warm up and then I get ready to do my 1 1/2 minute jog on the treadmill and YEP I got interrupted again... chat chat chatting GEESH why don't people come and talk to me when I am on the weights.... so I managed only 1 1/2 minutes because for the rest of the time I was walking and chatting... so was a little bit upset about that.
Did manage to do my weights and also got on the bloody cross trainer ekkkkkk I hate the bloody thing and the year before last I got up to almost doing 15 minutes on the damn thing but now I can only manage 5 minutes and I feel like I am dying... so I decided yesterday I would do 5 minutes but each minute would get faster so that I didn't have to be on there long but still had to do enough work.... so I think I did pretty well.
Was dissappointed in the gain of 1.6 kilos on Saturday but this morning I was down 700 grams so hey that was ok by me... I think I will do well this week. I have tracked the last week (in a book at home as I didn't get on the computer as much as I liked) and I have exercised and I am watching what I am eating.
I have a 5kg challenge to get it off by the 17th Feb (6 weeks) and I need to do this and stop fucking around. I know I can maintain so I am going to be ok when I get to my personal goal of 75 kilos but I need to shift of the 120's permanently. I am to get to 115.8 DAMN IT!!! This is getting ridiculous and it is not shifting even though I am tracking and keeping to points. I have 117's and 116's and 115's charms for my bracelet to achieve and I want them.!!!
Kris came over in the weekend as Corbin wanted to take Ashley to the Lavender gardens with us (he likes her and she likes him) anyway and Kris said "I want your husband" OMG I said "why?" she said because he plays with the kids and I haven't seen Ashley this happy in ages. Well she knows what she can do about that... talk to her husband or get out of the relationship bloody hell.. anyway so she also said she liked my bracelet and where did I get it and I said hubby brought it for me and I am not sure where... (not going to tell her I know as I don't want that woman to have the same) so at least I know that it does look good and it is a good motivator for me.
I have 4 people on the yahoo group and it is going to be great I can just feel it... we are going to support each other and we are going to lose this weight so thank you guys for joining me and also helping me out in this weight loss journey as I need to email more than just on my blog ya know.
So back to the start... was a little grumpy but had a visit from Pam and Brianna and that was nice and also had a visit from my friend Tania to show us her new dog (it is a sausage dog) and how cute was he.
Also went to the library on Sunday to get more books out and it was great to see both my boys sitting down and reading in the afternoon when we got back and chilling out in this heat (not watching bloody tv or computer) so it was a nice thing.
Didn't get any crafts done but will still keep up with it.
The next month is going to be sooo busy for me.
- I have Lyn's wedding invites
- Going away to Athenree for a week
- 2 weeks off work and 1 in Athenree and 1 week with hubby (as kids go back to school woohoo)
- Staying at my friends batch (Mansion or Bansion as we call it) for the weekend before we are on holiday. Going to go jet skiing and swimming so that is going to be fun.
ARGHHH so full on
Well better get some work done ho hum.

I have been distracted this week with food. I have been tracking up until yesterday but not really wanting to do this... but wanting to do this... and with people not blogging much I am just feeling realllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly overwelmed with all the food available at the holidays.
I think what I am going to do is let myself off until Monday when I go back to work and things are back to normal. I am going to track but I am not going to be strict on myself. I hate the pressure of having to start on the 1st of January a new life etc... it is like no no no it isn't me... I need a break. I am not going to go out and eat eat eat but I am not going ot be worried about having wine or alcohol or eggs for breakfast I am going to be me until Monday 7th January...
Weighed in this morning and Christmas has caught up on me but hey that is life and from Monday onward I am back to my routine.
I am not happy about the gain but I have to take the gain and that is that.
Silly bitch I am... how could I gain so much over 2 1/2 weeks but hey that is life aye..
Weight last week: 119.2 kgs
Weight this week: 120.8 kgs
Loss/Gain: Gain 1.6 kilos
Total loss from WW: 33.9 kgs
Total loss from start: 39.2 kgs
Anyway I am going to hang my head in shame

So far this morning slept in till 9am woohoooo that doesn't happen often but I woke up with another headache... Jeremy seems to think I have a nasel infection or something like that... I think I agree with him.
Corbin and Quinn wanted friends over today so I said we would phone some and so Corbin phoned Cathan to come over and then Jeremy talked to Ange (Cathan's mum) and she said she was going over to their new house (they are building) and would drop him off but he could only stay till lunch as he has a friend coming over... and we said we were going berry picking so he could come with us... well 10 minutes later Cathan phoned and said that he couldn't come over today but Corbin can come over tomorrow... Jeremy thought that was strange so he said can I speak to your mum he said she was in the shower and would get her to phone back...
I went to pick them up from the building site and said to his mum that we could take Kiely as well (his sister) as she gets on with Quinn so well.
My New Year's resolutions are going to happen this year.. I am going to achieve them and they aren't unrealistic I reckon.
And a picture of Quinn and Tahlia... hugging... hmmmm not sure about this one... was being quite protective when they hugged and said now now... you guys are rather young... at least it was only a hug GEESH... OMG I am going to be in trouble with this boy when he gets to be a teenager that is for sure.
This is them making blueberry muffins and Corbin and Jeremy below making them too... sooo cool.
We went for a walk tonight and went the big block too... it was great and then tomorrow morning we are off to the gym woohoooo back on track back on track.
Good night all.
