Feeling better today

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

I went to bed early last night (after eating Burger King... Tiredness leads to poor choices. Still, I had the small grilled chicken burger, half a medium fries and a diet sprite) and slept very well. I slept for over 8 hours straight, and woke up feeling a lot better. I got through my day and decided the gym would be a good idea. I did half of my weights workout and then a boxing class. It felt good to get moving and get back to my routine. Just as a note, my gym hires the sweetest people. I forgot a hairtie, and when I asked for a rubber band at the desk the receptionist gave me one of hers instead. She is always such a sweetie!

So, wish me luck for the rest of the week. I hope I can keep on with this momentum!

Just so tired

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

Argh, I am having one of those week. No matter how much I sleep I am just so tired. I could go to bed right now and probably sleep until morning. I skipped my workout tonight. I even went to the gym (had a meeting with my trainer), but I couldn't find enough energy to get changed. Everyone at school is sick, so I wouldn't be surprised if I am coming down with something again. Ick.

I had a short meeting with my trainer, as I do every 4-6 weeks. II need a new program, my old one was getting too easy/boring. I told him that I want to be able to do a full pull up by the end of the year. I'm not fussy, I just want one. He is going to help me towards my goal by designing a program that will support my new goal. He thought it was a great goal to have. I think he likes training me because I ask to be worked hard, to be challenged.

    I can see why a trainer would love to have someone who wants to get worked harder. I bet trainers see lots of people who want an easy path.

    Consider getting some sunlight, your body might need the mood lift it can provide and help you get past the sleepies.

A few photos of my road trip

Sunday, August 05, 2012

It was a 4 hour round trip, and we stopped for lunch in Whangarei. It is a smallish city in Northland. I didn't get many photos, unfortunately. It was raining a lot of the time, and there weren't many rest stops. Most of the NZ country side looks like this

and this

Sometimes there are more trees.

But, we did stop at a place called Marsden Point and I snapped these photos

The mist was low over the islands and it was really pretty.

And this fella provided entertainment

Now I am sleepy, and still have some planning to do! Gah, better get on to it.

Made my day!

Friday, August 03, 2012

I was working out at the gym, minding my own business, when a man came up to me and said, "You look pretty fit, miss. I bet you're a netball or a hockey player!"

I replied that I was none of the above, but thanked him for the comment and told him that he made my day!

ME? Pretty fit? NEVER! Or, am I? emoticon

The game plan for this weekend.

Friday, August 03, 2012

Well I had a relaxing night last night. I had Chinese food for dinner, and an ice cream, and m and m's. I haven't had dessert all week (just haven't felt like it), so I went slightly crazy. All good, I am firmly in the 'once in a while won't kill me' camp.

Today I have 2 missions.
Mission the first: go to the gym and do my weights.
Mission the second: find some jeans that fit! I am at a frustrating in between size at the moment. 14's are too big, 12's are too small! But, I need some new pants; Mine are falling off me. My boss even commented on it yesterday, but was sympathetic when I explained that I was in between (and poor, I don't get paid until next week). I wish I could get a pair of 13's, that would probably solve my problem!

Tomorrow my boyfriend is taking me on a road trip up north. We are going to Whangarei (say it: Fong - a - ray) for lunch and a wander around. It is a 2 hour drive, but he wants some quality time together, so off we go. I'll take lots of pictures to share with all of you!
