Well, I might be getting sick again. So far it is only a cough and a bit of a fuzzy head. And sneezing, but I'm a very sneezy person so this isn't new. I left work around 4pm, prepped for a reliever, and told my lead teacher that I wasn't feeling well and was going to head home and rest up, but I might not be in tomorrow. I have an insanely supportive team, so I am very lucky. I am hoping that if I take it easy tonight I will feel better tomorrow. If not I'll take the day off work and rest. I am hoping that I am just overworked and over tired, and an early night will take care of it!
So, obviously, no gym today. Luckily I was insane yesterday and got in my cadio and my strength!

Yep, 90 minutes. I walked/jogged to the gym (about half and half, I walked the uphill bits), which took me 25 minutes. Once at the gym I did my weights program, plus a few extra things while I waited for the assisted pull up machine. 30 minutes there. Then I walked home, which took me 35 minutes. I'm tired and my feet hurt.
I went shopping and got heaps of fresh fruit and veg. Went to the jewellery store to put a ring in for resizing, since it is too big and is starting to slip off. Now I am sitting at home trying to motivate myself to do my school work. I need to plan the whole week, which is a big job, and I'm not exactly thrilled to get started!
Anyway, no point to this blog really, just an update!

I now measure once a month, around the 20th. Here are my first 3 months of measurements
Bust - 99cm
Waist - 83cm
Hip - 109cm
Thigh - 62cm
Bust - 98cm
Waist - 80cm
Hip - 106.5cm
Thigh - 58.5cm
Bust - 96cm
Waist - 78cm
Hip - 105cm
Thigh - 56.5cm
So, since June, I am
Bust - 3cm down - BOO! I think a lot is from back fat because the girls still fill up the bra cups well...
Waist - 5cm down - woohoo! I measure at my natural waist, which is quite high... I feel the need to disclose this. It is a hard measurement to get because my boobs get in the way of me reading the tape!
Hip - 4cm down - yay!
Thigh - 5.5cm down - YAY!
Usual disclaimer about how it is impossible to measure in exactly the same place each time. However, the numbers are still good, even accounting for some room for error.
Around this time of the month I stall in my weight loss for a week or 2. I know it is coming, but it still isn't nice. Nothing to do with my period, since I don't get one, but maybe I still get some of the hormonal changes anyway? Who knows. Since I'm not losing weight it is a good time to measure, so I can see some progress!

Today was author day. We had a topsy turvy day at school, with lots of reading aloud, a guest author and a special assembly. The kids were crazy all day because of the different timetable, but it was mainly a good crazy. Although I did tell a group of junior kids at morning break time that if they kept acting up I'd cancel morning break. The funny thing about 5 year olds is that they believe these things, so they all toddled off and played nice.
I have had a tiring week. Another one. There is a child in my class with pretty stressful behavioural issues, and currently nothing I do is working. This is not a new issue, so I don't take it personally, but it still tires me out.
I made it to the gym tonight. I did most of my weights routine, but the trainer has my program card until he gives me my new program, so I kind of forgot half of my program and winged it. Afterwards I bumped into a lady I know, and since we were talking anyway we took our chat to the treadmills. An extra 15 minutes of exercise, can't go wrong with that!!
I have some strength training victories
Chest press - Start 4kg dumbbells. Now 12.5kg dumbbells
Assisted pull ups - Start 45kg counter weight. Now 30kg counter weight
Leg press - Start 40ish kg. Now 100kg
And now for some funny ones
