Had clients all day...ate dinner for lunch, and had a quick hour or so to eat my lunch for dinner and head to 2 more clients...then headed to the gym to begin week 3 of bootcamp! :) Got so wrapped up in The Girl's next door, I almost went longer...just knew had to get home, take the face off and hit bed. Have a 9 AM client tomorrow!
So nothing too exciting once again! :) But I am still making a way - finding a way to get to the gym everyday! I never thought it would happen, but it has! WHOOOO HOOOO!
Good night ya'll. sweet dreams!

Today was a Sunday like I was use to having before I moved here...I never got out of my pajamas...except to shower tonight! :) I watched Episodes of Kendra and loved it! I can SO relate to her and Hank is a fabulous man.
I carb overloaded though, but I don't really care! :) It was nice to not analyze and think! Just looked at week 3 of bootcamp...it says up your cardio by 10 minutes and try intervals...well, I was gonna try intervals this week...but my 60 minutes just went to 70...oh lordy! :)
I am heading to bed...sorry nothing earth shattering to report! :) Have a great week and I hope all my peeps back home can send me some of the snow you are getting dumped with! xoxox

This time of year is hard since I moved to New Zealand and since my Grandparents who raised me passed away. It's hard having Christmas in Summer and seeing santa in board shorts surfing and I miss my balsam fir REAL tree with it's most perfect shaped branches and needles....ahhhh...and snow...I also miss people working their butts off at work and at the gym!!! It's like the whole country takes a holiday here for 2 months and won't commit to anything! The kids are out of school so I can't go to the gym...I can't start that now...I'll wait until after the new year...and usually businesses close for at least 2 weeks - 4 weeks and the whole country gets paid for 4 weeks as well....unlike me who is basically self employed! So as I fill with frustration, I decided to take a step back and just relax and work on myself more...and try to come up with some ways to work with this annual mindset that happens!
I came up with some great ideas, have met some great networking people, and then my man told me not to worry so much about the money...we're fine! :) I'm high Maintenance and I need money! LOL But it felt like a weight had been lifted.
I put the 20 year boxed set of OPRAH in when I need a reality check sometimes. There is always someone REALLY worse off that is going through something MAJOR in their lives...my business is just slow for a month or so...I have a roof over my head, food in my fridge, money in my account (even if it's not much), a man who loves me, pets who adore me, internet access, 3 flatscreen TVs, 1000 movies, a great bed, my health....etc Seriously....I just have to remind myself of this every once in awhile when my "oh whoa is me" party begins!
I am grateful finally after 4 years in the country for being ME! I am different, silly, goofy, original, unique, NOT A NATURAL GIRL IN ANY WAY (except my boobies are real!) , I hate the outdoors, I don't drink, I'm pretty anti-social, I am opinionated, creative, bull headed, talkative, and don't ever want kids...all these things make me okay in the states, but here in NZ...well..I'm just a great freak of nature that leaves uptight stuck up people gobsmacked and I LOVE IT!!!!! Not enough goofy or silly here! I am proud! I am proud that I dream big! They don't like that either! LOL I know how to stop conversations dead and never be invited back...because I don't need people like them in my life, so I go for the shocker and then leave smiling! LOL AHHHH FUN!!!!
SOOOOOOO much to be grateful for...the true friends and family and open-minded people out there...DON'T EVER CHANGE!

Okay...so I am the positive American girl who dreams big, sees the glass as half full, does now and thinks later...a true Gemini! My man is a skeptical, non-dreaming Kiwi man who is cautious and glass half empty!!! But I think I am finally winning the war on minimal thinking at our house!!!
I am so proud of my commitment to workout everyday...even with all my success and my job helping others lose weight, I have never been committed like I am now! I have lost lots of weight and feel accountable to Facebook, my boss, myself, my clients, and even the FourSquare App on my iPhone holds me accountable! But yesterday this was a conversation in our house:
Me: "I still don't like how I look in the mirror at the gym"
Man: "At least you can look in the mirror at the gym"
Man: It means you're actually at the gym!!!
Good point! I shut up and went to take a shower with a big grin on my face and a wee bit of shock!!! He has loved me fatter, thinner and in between. When we met online, he actually responded to a photo that was a heavier me that I forgot to change and had since lost weight...so I actually had to tell him I was 40 pounds lighter!! LOL he met me at what I call my BEST and then I moved here to be with him and I had to learn to eat all over again because there isn't anything I ate everyday that I can get here...except some produce! And things are expensive. So he watched me pack it all back on and be miserable...and loved me! He says I am more myself when I am where I am now...my attitude and confidence is what makes him love me...not what the scale says. Whatever makes me happy!
So...just when ya' think you're talking to a brick wall....
