Weight goal: By the end of this month I would like to have a normal BMI. This would require me to lose 900g. Now that I am tracking (ick!) this should be doable.
Goal smashed! I lost 1.6kg, which is 700g more than my goal called for. I have a normal BMI AND I hit 15kg lost.
Nutrition: Track, track, track. Stay within my calories 6 days a week. In a perfect world I would stay in my calories 7 days a week, but aiming for 6 days gives me some flexibility. Life happens, after all!
I tracked my little heart out. I staying in range most days, with the occasional day over or not tracking. My weekend away and personal problems made it hard, but I stuck to it and the results are showing on the scale.
Exercise: Gradually get back to my normal routine, under the supervision of my physio. I am allowed to walk, so I would like to walk a few times a week. I am also allowed to continue with my arms and abs ST, so I will do this too. Boxing may be OK; I am going to try tomorrow night, but if it hurts I will stop. Aim for 3 days of ST and 3 cardio days, with walking being counted as cardio.
I was able to join back in with my boot camp class twice a week. I did boxing at least once a week and I did ST twice a week. I am calling that a win!

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.
