I wore this dress on Sunday
I was brave. Look at how much leg I was showing! But, I rocked it and I felt sexy and confident. Not bad for a $5 dress, huh? Unfortunately, a dress means ditching the sneakers and wearing sandals. And now I am injured again. I have done something to my ankle from walking around in the sandals, which require a slightly different gait so they don't go flying off my foot. This is why I don't wear dresses much; Sneakers are my friend. Physio tomorrow at 8am! Off to put another one of his kids through university!
I also got this on the weekend
Breathe deep, sparkmums, it isn't real. Yet. I went to talk to someone about getting this as a tattoo. They can do a stencil and transfer it on to your arm, like a temporary tattoo, so you can wear it for a couple of days and see how you feel about the location, size, etc. I really, really like it, and it is small enough to fit under my watch, so I can cover it for work. I am loving the purple colour, and am thinking that I won't get it done in black, as it may be a little harsh. Instead I think I'll get it done in a purple colour, which was more subtle.

I have booked my international flights, so they are set in stone. Now I need to book my internal flights, which means deciding how long to spend in each city. How long is long enough? So here are the details
9th January - land in San Fran at 10am
16th January - leave LA in contiki
And I need to get Seattle in there, too.
My plan is this
9th, 10th,11th, 12th, 13th - San Fran
Evening of the 13th - fly to Seattle
Seattle 14th, 15th
Fly to LA the evening of the 15th
So I would get 4.5 days in San Fran and 2 full days in Seattle. How does this sound to people who have been there? I have waaaay more must dos in san Fran than in Seattle, hence the difference. I am also hoping that I will be able to nap on the plane and will be able to do a few non-taxing things the day I land. If I am tired I can sleep anywhere, so here's hoping. BUT I also know that I might land and feel like death and want to sleep all day, which would mean half a day less to see and do things.

At the beginning of August I decided to work towards leg pressing my own body weight on the sled style leg press. I maxed out the other machine... Unfortunately, I got injured and had to put that goal on the back burner. I have been slowly working my way back up to the goal, and today I met it
I weigh 72.8kg (this mornings weigh in) and today I leg pressed 75kg, 2 sets, 8 reps.
My next goal is 100kg.
Can I get a whoop whoop?!

For the last few days I have been trying something new. I have been focusing on lowering my carbs. Now, relax, I'm not going low carb or anything. I have just been focusing on eating towards the lower end of my range (and occasionally just below) and trying to eat towards the middle of my range for my protein and fat.
I have found that I am fairly full, but other than that I haven't noticed any other changes. I do think it is a sensible experiment, so I will continue it for a little while. It has made me cut out a lot of junk food, because it is so high in carbs! There are plenty of carbs in my lower range to keep eating fruit, my morning cereal, lunchtime sandwich thin, and yogurt; the sensible carbs! I did try my first ever protein bar today. I picked up a couple to keep in my desk for nights where I have to stay behind later than expected. I liked it, it just tasted like a chocolate bar. Not the healthiest snck, I know, but better than other options. Good for an occasional emergency snack.
So, thats the news...
