Tonight at boot camp my nickname was GI Jane. I like that! Boot camp was TOUGH tonight. Behind my gym is a set of concrete stairs that most people don't know are there. We know that they are there. Oh boy, do we know that they are there.... The basic circuit was up the stairs, down the road a little, down the driveway, back to where we started. Once we were back we had to complete things like planks, side planks, moving planks (anyone notice a pattern) sit ups, push ups.... You get the idea. It was tough. It was great! I loved every second of it. I wish they had been like this from the start. I was able to really challenge myself tonight. I sprinted up those stairs, did the strength faster than the others so I did more, etc.
Also, day 8 in range. Whoop whoop! Even some room for dessert if I want some ;)
ALSO, good news. I can officially say that I have a job next year. The rest of the staff were told today, so I can now shout it from the rooftops. It looks like I will be teaching 4 days in my own class and 1 day taking an extension group of gifted children. I am very excited!

7 days. Wow. Who am I? I even have another 100 calories left, but I'm not hungry, so they don't matter!
Back to school today. I winged it, but it worked. I haven't been able to concrentrate on work in days,so I had nothing planned. The kids didn't even notice, so that was good. Tomorrow I'm not in my classroom, so I have the day to pull myself, and my planning, together.
Teaching is hungry work. I was starving by 10am and morning tea isnt until 11! Need to investigate a 'just before school snack' to hold me over until break time.
Aiming for 8 days in range. I have boot camp tomorrow, and I am looking forward to it. I just hope my mum doesn't suggest fast food for dinner; dad is away overnight and when it is just us two she tends to suggest things that are quick and easy. Sometimes if I offer to cook it is ok...
Wish me luck for day 8 of eating in range (and hopefully a pretty, pretty loss on the scale soon)

I didn't want to work out this morning. Wallowing in self pity sounded better. But I dragged by button the gym, knowing that I would feel much, much better once I was there. And I did. 10 minutes running on the treadmill to warm up followed by my weights. I didn't want to leave by the end of it!
I have spent the day running errands and things. I haven't cried today, yet. I'm feeling a bit teary tonight, though. I miss him, and I know that feeling won't go away in a hurry.
I need to go and plan for tomorrow. I have no idea what im doing. I haven't been able to focus on work since it happened. I'm sure it will all fall into place once I'm at work. I hope. Gah.
Lunch for tomorrow is packed. Gym bag is ready and waiting. Ready or not, here comes monday!

So in an effort to cheer me up my parents got me an iPad 3. Yes, my parents try to buy my happiness. Yes I am a little spoilt. I'll own it. I love my new toy! It is so cool, and I have always wanted one.
My friend tracey took me out for wine and nibbles tonight. To cheer me up. It worked. I don't have a care in the world right now! They were big glasses of wine! She was sober driver, so I could have a few drinks and not worry about getting home.
Now I am watching greys anatomy and playing on my iPad. While intoxicated. Fun.

Due to the happenings in my life (see status updates) I have barely eaten today. I am kinda hungry, but the thought of eating makes me sick. I managed to get some food down, around 600 calories worth. Even the thought of ice cream (my fave) doesn't really tempt me. I am not watching what I eat today, I am just gonna eat anything that I can keep down. So far I have had cereal, yogurt and a piece of toast with peanut butter. There is some fish in the oven, and I'll have to have one because I just got up and nearly passed out.
I did go to the gym. It made me feel better. I ran on the treadmill for 10 minutes, then I picked up heavy things and put them back down again for half an hour.
Now I am snuggled up on the couch with a blanket. A cat should be along shortly.
On the cat note, happy birthday to my kitty, BB. She was 11 yesterday!
Yes, she is fluffy. Yes, I do sometimes bury my face into her fur. She hates me, which is a shame. She loves my dad. Picky cat!
