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!

I WILL have a good day today. I will, I will, I will! I got woken up early this morning by my boyfriend turning the shower on (never usually wakes me). Then the cat sat in the hallway outside the bedroom and scratched his neck caused the bell on his collar to ring. Then I got a rumbly in my tumbly. So I got up! I started my day with a fruit smoothie whipped up in my magic bullet. Soooooo good, and I've already had 2 servings of fruit (peach and berries) and 1 serving of veggies (spinach)! Score!
Workout out today will be inside. The strom has hit and it has hit hard. The rain is pouring down and its is so loud my cats are looking worried. It takes a lot to bother them! I am going to the swimming pools to do water jogging and some swimming (and to sit in the spa, I'm not gonna lie, its the best bit!) While I am at the pools I will buy a 10 trip pass so I can go more often and save a bit of money.
Then I am going to my last placement school to visit my kids. Nothing motivates you to do assignments like these kids. They remind me WHY I'm struggling through these assignments. I want to be a teacher, but there is heaps of non-fun stuff you have to do before they will give you a class!
Other chores for the day:
Finish my sandwich boxes (all will be revealed in my next post, the will be pics)
Buy velcro dots for sandwich boxes
Buy collars for my cats (We are moving in a few weeks time so we want to collar them before that, incase they run away during the move. We have never collared before but we think we need to now)
Buy deflea treatment for the cats
Buy catfood and washing powder
Go food shopping
Get a massage (I ache. I'm worth it!)
Lots of stuff to do, better get moving!

Some people are hoarders. My boyfriend is a hoarder. He won't let me throw out an alarm clock that stopped working 3 years ago because he might be able to fix it. He holds onto things and has stuff everywhere.
I'm a different kind of hoarder. I hoard my feelings. I let them pile up and up and up until I need to start throwing my feelings out because there is no more room.
Yesterday I threw feelings out. I had a meltdown. A big, messy meltdown. I blogged a little to get my frustration out, and thank you to everyone who was so nice and supportive.
I'm having a bit of a...life right now. Uni is getting busy and I have heaps to do. But I don't understand a couple of my assignments and I'm feeling very dumb because this has never happened to "Miss A". I'm used to just getting things and this semester nothing is clicking. I'm falling behind and getting stressed.
Home life sucks. My boyfriend and I barely talk and barely see each other. We see each other properly once every 2-3 weeks and there is no promises that he will even want to spend time with me, he prefers his computer. We have been together nearly 5 years though, so I want to work things out etc, but it is hard and adding to my stress.
Work sucks, but I have quit so I only have to worry about it for another week and a half and them I'm done :)
My weight loss has stopped. Nothing I do will make it move and I just want it to go down a little! I'm not greedy, just a kilo or 2 so I don't get discouraged. My run yesterday was awful, and so was the run before that. I just don't think I can do it, which kills me because I want to be a runner very badly. I can't even explain why, it is just something I have wanted for a while. Being bad at it depresses me and makes me feel pretty crappy.
So there are my feelings and my reasons for my meltdown. Nice to get everything out calmly. Thanks for reading
