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
Monday: Walk with boyfriend, try some running
Tuesday: Pools, water walking, swimming or both
Wednesday: Walk, try some running
Friday: Water walking
Saturday: Walk, try some running.
Stay within calories
3 servings of fruit, 1 serving of veggies a day

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!

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!

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!
