I never thought I would love exercise this much. Ever. I always hated it as a kid, and now I can't get enough. I am working out six days a week, and I look forward to every workout. Yesterday I went for a run. 5k, a distance I haven't done in months. It was hot, so I took walking breaks and didn't push it too much. Still shaved 3 minutes off my last time on the same route! Today was boxing day. I went earlier and did a short strength workout before the boxing class. So I hurt now, but at the time i was happy!
It is getting SO HOT here! Yesterday and today I was sweating buckets. Like, running down my face and into my eyes. Makes me feel good, ya know, getting a sweat on, but I know that it is just the heat and not my effort

After working for the past 6 days in a row (WOW! 1xboxing, 2xboot camp, 3xweights) I took today as a rest day. I was also tired from supervising the school disco last night. I had a boogie, acted as crowd control (quickest way to get 100+ kids to be quiet? Get on a microphone and say "be quiet"!), and walked around making sure the kids were OK. So today I didn't exercise, but I kept active.
The morning started with curtain shopping. The curtains in my room were 20 years old, so it was time for an upgrade. We found some nice silvery coloured ones on sale, and put them up this morning. We'll need to take them off to hem them, but for now they are fine. Putting up curtains is hard work! It doesn't sound like hard work, but it really is! After that I had a massage. OK, I got to relax for that! After that I raced to coffee with a friend, did some shopping ($10 OPI nail polish, score!) and started my report writing. 4.5 done, 18.5 to go!
The scale has been bothering me lately. 71.5kg. Every. Freaking. Morning. It is driving me nuts. I know I have to wait and it will sort itself out, but, seriously, I hate working so hard and not getting anywhere. If I were going over my calories by heaps (I'm sometimes over by 50-100) I would understand, but I'm not.
And that's my life. Coming up is heaps of planning and report writing!

Monday is boxing day. Gosh, I love hitting things. I pushed myself and got a good sweat on. I had awful chocolate cravings yesterday. Terrible. I went over my calories a little because I stopped resisting. I don't have those days often, so I will live. Maybe I get PMS cravings even though I don't get a period?
I had boot camp tonight. Fun, as always. The trainer played a game with shuttle cocks, and as you can imagine, the 'cock' jokes were flying. So, so funny. The poor trainer was really regretting not having a game with another prop to collect. I think I overdid it, and my quad hurts tonight. Icing it and gonna see how I feel tomorrow.
I have been starving all day today! I can't get enough food! I have eaten nearly 1900 calories and I am still hungry! I was too high on fat, a little low on carbs, so maybe that is why? Or maybe I am hungry because I am kicking the exercise up a notch? I have changed my goals to reflect my new exercise level, but my range only changed by 30 calories, so that was no help...
I'm on strike tomorrow afternoon. My first strike, how exciting. It is a stop work meeting that all NZ teachers are encouraged to attend, so off I go to...do... union stuff!
My trip is now fully booked. I just need to start saving some spending money!! And pay off credit cards. And get a second job so I can actually afford this holiday!
And thats me!

Yesterday was a total rest day. I worked out every day after work last week (2x boxing, 2x boot camp, 1 x weights), so I think I earned a rest. And I didn't get up until after 11am yesterday morning... Most of the day was gone anyway! I ended up meeting a friend for coffee, and rediscovered peppermint mochas from Starbucks. Be still my heart. I may get fat again, just from peppermint mochas... YUMMY.
This morning I did the super fitness thing and ran to the gym, then did my workout. Dad picked me up so I didn't have to run home again. It was a good run except for an insane head wind. I felt like I should have been flying, but I looked like I was on Bay Watch. It was that strong! I really pushed myself at the gym, and even added extra stuff in that isn't on my program. I love working out, it keeps me sane!
I had lunch with my ex today. It was really nice. Just chatting and catching up, no pressure. We have seen each other a handful of times in the past couple of weeks. We still enjoy each others company. Afterwards we went shopping for clothes. Nothing for me (I actually have to start saving for my trip). Later I met with a friend for coffee, and did the food shopping.
So that is my weekend. Eating was OK, but the drinking on Friday probably threw my calories for a loop... Not much damage on the scale, so that's good news :) Now, I should get on with my planning for next week!
Oh, as a side note, last week I said I had a couple of dates with a boy. Yeah, we aren't seeing each other anymore. Just wasn't gonna work out.
