Going at it again....

Saturday, August 10, 2013

Well I have been back since last Saturday ( 3.08.13) and are doing good. Only weighed myself on Thursday to see how much I have put on. I was suprised to see it was only 10 kgs since August 2011! But still I feel like crap and after seeing photos of myself while I was on holiday in Vietnam - I thought my god I look like a big purple hippo in the outfit I was wearing. So its back to tracking. I walk a lot for work - I work at Bunnings ( a big hardware store - for those who don't know what it is ) and constantly walk from one side of the store to the other three days a week. My grand daughter keeps me on the go for two days a week and for the rest of the time the "farm" keeps me pretty busy. Mowing season will be here soon so I will be working long days doing that and hope to loose more of my "hippo look".

Well lately i have felt sluggish and unhealthy. Jumped on the scales this morning for the first time in AGES and found that I have gained over 4 kilos - and it has to go!
So I am back to do over what I undone.

My Funny Tale of the week

Friday, July 22, 2011

On Wednesday I took the other half to the hospital for his weekly session. He goes there for exercise classes where they monitor his heart rate. I dropped him off at 9.00am and didn't have to pick him until 11.45am. I had the baby and my sons girlfriend in the car with me, so we went to the post office and then we decided to go visit my mum.
We sat around and had coffee and talked awhile. My mum doesn't live far from the hospital, so we just killed time until we had to go back. I watched my mums clock to make sure I wasn't late picking up the other half. So at 11.20am we all bundled back into the car and off to the hospital we went.
He usually waits outside the front driveway, but he wasn't there. There is never any parking to be found at the hospital, so we drove around and around looking for him. I looked at the dashboard clock and it read 12.50pm. I thought that it must be on daylight saving time and was wrong. So we drove around and around looking for him. Still no sign of him. Then I decided to check my mobile and it read 1.00pm!
I was an hour late!
I rang his parents as they live very close to the hospital but he wasn't there. I decided to drive back towards home to see if he was walking it. We live some miles from the hospital and there are many ways to get there, so I took the direct route home. No sign of him. Drove back to the hospital and thought he may have gone to the shopping centre. No sign of him. I thought that he might go up the major road, as I sometimes go that way to pick him up. No sign of him!
He can't ever remember my mobile no. even though I have had the same no. for 18 years, so I thought, we would go home, feed and change the baby and check the answering machine.
About 2 miles from home, we spotted him walking towards home. I thought I am in so much trouble. It was raining and he had walked miles and miles. He came over to us smiling. I was apologizing to him out the car window before he even got near the car. I felt terrible about not being on time and seeing him soaked to the bone was not good either.
His response " Well, the staff at the hospital told me I needed to do 10,000 steps and I think I have done it for today".
Later that day my Dad rang and asked me if we picked my other half up on time and then told me the battery in my mums clock had died...
The funny thing about it all is that I was in his car, using his petrol and he sounded like a Spark Person when he said he needed to 10,000 steps. Us Sparkies are supposed to do a lot of steps daily and now it looks like I have a walking partner. So on the local roads now there will be one walking for weight loss and the other for his heart.

    That's great to have your guy be a your walking partner. Better bonding with exercise benefits to boot. All great! Hope you two really enjoy the walks for a long time.

Day out cut short

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

My 10 year old niece is staying at my Mums and we decided to take her, along with two of my other nieces( who are 14 and 16) and my granddaughter (18 months old )to the ice skating rink. The news tonight said today was the coldest day yet ( its winter here in Oz ) but let me tell you, it was far colder at the rink.
We got inside and the three girls went on their merry way around the rink and my granddaughter didn't want to stay seated so we played hide and go "boo" behind the unused ice hockey nets. Her fun was cut short (as was mine) when she fell flat on her face. When I turned her over she had cut the inside and the outside of her little lip.
Blood everywhere and tears, we had to leave Luckily she was okay.
The worst thing is that I was just about to decide top try out ice skating, as I have never done it before, and she hurt herself. i used to roller skate, but really wanted to have a go at ice skating. Oh! Well! Maybe next time.......

Tonight I am making a souffle. Never before have I attempted this. Its a rhubarb souffle that I found in a magazine. At only 149 calories I think that it will be a favorite - thats if it turns out! was fantastic and so light! This is a definite keeper. Might try it with some other fruit and see what happens. I am open to suggestions if anyone would like to leave them.
