Body composition vs weight

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Today I tried on a tshirt, out of desperation for something black to wear to work. I thought it was silly, since it didn't fit when I was several kilos lighter. But, wouldn't you know, it fits and looks good. Further proof that what the scale says isn't always important. In saying that I'm still very happy that the scale has an 81 on it now!

The past couple of days have been OK. Yesterday I tried to make a good choice at lunch. I ended up having to swap meals with my nana and ate her deep fried fish instead of my pan fried fish. Dinner ended up being bar snacks with my boyfriend and friend. Meh, it happens. I didn't get to the pools.

Today I have stayed within my calories. I did have burger fuel for dinner but I had the mini burger, about the size of the palm of my hand. I indulged but didn't go overboard. My pool buddy cancelled on me today, and I wasn't keen to go alone. I was in a company mood.

Tomorrow the boyfriend and I are going to explore a new trail, and I am going to try some running intervals. No pressure, just enjoy myself.

Right, the weeks plan

Sunday: Rest
Monday: Walk with boyfriend, try some running
Tuesday: Pools, water walking, swimming or both
Wednesday: Walk, try some running
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Water walking
Saturday: Walk, try some running.

Stay within calories
3 servings of fruit, 1 serving of veggies a day

    It's quite a balancing act, isn't it? Indulging without chucking the whole thing over? It's empowering to get it right though.

My day today

Thursday, September 23, 2010

I'm sleepy! Several nights of interupted/not enough sleep are catching up with me. You bet I had a soy vanilla latte this morning before class. Luckily class was very interesting, so I stayed awake. It was for my class on inclusive education and we had a guest speaker who has Aspergers and ADHD and has 3 children with ADHD and ASD (Austim Spectrum Disorder). She was honest, informative and very helpful. She made us laugh and cry. Best of all she gave us a perspective we often forget about in teaching; the parents perspective. We spend so much time talking about the child and the teaching that sometimes we forget about the parents. It was great have information not only about children with ADHD and ASD but information on how to work with the parents! I have an interest in ASD so I loved the lecture! Right enough of what I did in school today!

I didn't work out yesterday because I had a major headache and I felt terrible. Today the headache is lurking, but I don't think I'm going to work out today. I MAY go to the pools for a swim later if I am feeling up to it, but there are more pressing matters at hand.

I need to clean my house. It is discusting and even I can't stand it anymore. So this afternoon/tonight will be house cleaning. On a Friday night. Yes, I clean on Friday nights and I'm 21. Both my friends are busy. Yes, both. One of my friends is my boyfriend! As outgoing as I am, I have a very quiet social life and tend to spend a lot of time alone. This is for several reasons but I like to think it is because I have a big personality and that is either too much for people or I'm just not their cuppa.

So thats my day today. Uni, sandwiches, cleaing, friendlessness!

    Bah on the interrupted sleep (I've had that for 2 weeks now)! Makes for some long and tiring days. I hope your sleep improves soon, and that the headache is history by now.

    I'm glad you had such an inspirational speaker. There is nothing like getting the info from the horse's mouth, so to speak. :-)
My house is overdue a good clean. I really must try, in spite of still being under the weather.

    I loved Christmas in New Zealand! We got to open presents, sing Christmas carols and spread Yuletide cheer in our bathing suits. Good times. Which was completely opposite of when I celebrated my birthday there, in the freezing rain. My birthday is in August. Good luck with you studies and your teeny bikini goal! :)

    Hehehe I always get funny "looks" on here when I say my goal is a bikini by christmas! Last year here in Auckland it got above 30C on christmas day (Thats...90 degrees in American, give or take). Christmas to me is cold meats, BBQ and salads, followed by pavolva and a swim!

    Sounds like a great speaker in your class! Last year I brought in a parent as a speaker for our teacher in-service day. It was such a different perspective from our typical curriculum development- teachers really benefited from hearing what this parent had to say. Can't imagine the wealth of information you got given the background of the speaker you heard! It always makes me laugh when you talk about swimming now in your blogs---- here in the states, Chicago is starting to cool down for fall. When you said something about swimming on Christmas you really through me for a loop, as we normally have -10 degrees by December. Have a great weekend, hope your house is nice and clean :)

Sandwich boxes (The Sparked Assignment!)

Thursday, September 23, 2010

For technology we had to interview 2 children from a local school, find out their interests, likes and dislikes and design them a sandwich and box. My two boys were very cool and I had a lot of fun making the boxes.

My boxes were made out of foam, which made them durable and insulated (chicken sandwiches will be safe!)

I made my boxes sport themed, one rugby and one soccer. Gotta keep active! The cut outs are laminated and have a velcro dot on the back. The top of the box is covered in velcro dots as well so they can move the cut outs around and play!

The boxes were in the boys favourite colours and they both love sport!

The sandwiches were healthy. They both had ham, lettuce, tomato, carrot and cheese on brown bread. They loved them and said they were very tasty!

Here are some of the awesome boxes made by my class! I was feeling a bit inadequate in class, because some of these are awesome!

So there ya go, the mystery sandwich boxes! Hope you enjoyed seeing them!

    How neat-o! I agree with the previous comment, no need to feel inadequate. Your box is quite creative, well thought out, and is compact enough to easily fit into a backpack. You'd definitely get an A if I were scoring you!

    What a cool assignment! Bet these were really fun to make. Your sandwich box is great, no need to feel inadequate. I like that it is interactive and the sports guys can move around. Even better that they had healthy sandwiches in them. Really cute, thanks for sharing- I am always looking for things to pass on to my staff.

Why, hello 81...You're late!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Today the scales read 81.8. This is the first time I have weighed under 82 in a while. I think the last time I weighed in the 81's was last year, so yay me! I'm cautiously optimistic. Lets see what they say on 'official' weigh in day, which is Sunday.

I think mixing things up and watching what I have been eating has been key this week. I have been water jogging twice and I have been tracking every second day (everyday is too time consuming and I get frustrated because a lot of packaged foods that I eat aren't on the tracker so I have to enter them in).

Plans for today:
Finish sandwich boxes (I will post photos and explain because they are too cool!)
Start technology assignment
Clean my kitchen
Do some washing
Go to the pools for a swim (weather is still awful!)
Visit my grandad and try to convince him to come to a show with me and my nana on Saturday. He is a hermit but he would really like the show!

On your markeys, get your carkeys...GO!
