My busy weekend ahead

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

I'm excited for the weekend!

The weekend will start with a 6.30am water walking date with my friend Caz. Yes, 6.30am. Its the only time she can come, so I will suck it up and be there! Luckily for Caz I love her.

Then on Saturday Caz and I are doing this

The Dove Pink Star Walk is a 5km walk around the Auckland Domain at dusk. Caz and I will don our pink clothes, fairy wings and pink glow stick braclets and walk 5K to raise money for breast cancer awareness. Our team name is Bosom Buddies. I thought it was appropriate. I am very excited to be able to

1. Walk 5K!
2. Raise money for such a good cause
3. Wear pink :)

I'm not a huge pink fan, but I will be on Saturday!

Wish me luck everyone!

*On an internet safety note, the only reason I am letting you know my plans in advance is because this is a huge event with lots of people there. If I was going somewhere alone I wouldn't mention it online, but because it is a huge event I feel safe*

    Great cause for a walk! My Sister was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple years ago, but caught it in time and has been cancer free since. I send you a big hug for doing what you are doing! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Proof (with pics)

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

I went on my walk! Here is proof, me in my workout clothes, slightly red faced

Yes, I did take my mirror outside to take a picture. It was too dark inside and if I used the flash thats all the picture was!

And since I had the camera out I decided to post progress pics, even though I have only lost just over a pound since my last pics

Can I just say that I love my butt? Too bad, I'm saying it anyways. My booty is my favourite body part right now.

I would post side by sides, but they look exactly the same, so I'll save that for another day.

I went out for my walk with the goal of having fun. And I did! I did some running intervals with no pressure. My first interval was 6 and a half minutes (!) and when I mapped my run it was 1km! That is .75 of a mile for my non metric readers. I was proud. So I have worked out that my first interval is the best, so I'll probably just try and make that longer and not worry about the rest. I still got a good workout in!!!

Now I'l sleepy...Early night me thinks!

    Great job on your walk and run intervals! I think it's easier to run with no pressure, no?

And yeah, go ahead on and shout it out to the world that you love your booty! emoticon

emoticon here's to getting out there and making it
work.Good show........so cool. I am loving your coastline and thinking this looks like many places in California. Wondering if this would be a good place for hang gliding?
I live about 2.5 hours from the beach but don't get there as ofter as I used to.
Oh, and I must mention the music too. As my call name suggests I am a huge fan of JD FORTUNE/cANAdian frontman for INXS/Aussie band...they were just singing at the AFL in Melbourne. I wish I were in Australia.Well it's like 12:30 here and time for sleepies.
Just wanted you to know I love your energy and wish you the best with SP and your education...oh and those
fur babies as well.

The movies

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

I went to the movies with my friend and her sister to see Dispicable Me in 3D. It was good and had quite a few laughs. More importantly, I was good! I shared some popcorn with my friends and had a frozen coke. Frozen coke is my movie tradition and since I don't go to the movies often I indulged. I felt good about my choices.

I am going for a walk in 25 minutes (I wanna finish watch Home and Away, its my secret shame). It is a lovely evening and a walk is just what I feel like. Pearl and Mavis (my shoes) have been a bit neglected lately since I discovered my love of the pools. Then depending on how I feel I will go to the pools around 8pm. I want to get a good workout in today since I have done nothing for 3 days!

Wish me luck!

    Once I had a secret shame,
That lived inside the heart of me.
All too soon my secret shame,
became impatient to be free.

So I told my dear Spark Blog,
The way that bloggers often do
Just how wonderful you are
And why I am so in love with you

Now I shout it from the highest hills
Even told the golden daffodils

At last my heart's an open door
And my secret shame's no secret anymore

(With apologies to Doris day) *grin*

I lost an hour!

Sunday, September 26, 2010

So yesterday daylight savings ended, which means several things. Its summer soon! And the clocks went forward an hour. I completely missed the memo and cruised into work an hour late. Opps. Luckily I had a good excuse, and what are they gonna do, fire me?

Anyways, we lost an hour. Which means that my 9am (I'm a student, its allowed!) wake up this morning was actually a 10am wake up. Which means I was an hour behind all day. I'm using that as my no exercise excuse for today, I ran out of time!

However I did get a lot of assignmenting done, and if I can get a lot more done tonight after work I'm going to take tomorrow off assignments which means more workout time. At the very least tomorrow I am going to the pools for an hour. If I can get my assignment done tonight I will try to fit in a walk as well, to make up for my lazy 3 day weekend!

My last day at work is in 4 days. Counting down. I can't wait!

    I was looking at what you said about the clocks going forward, and thinking you'd got it wrong, until I saw you mention summer and remembered that you are on the other side of the world to me. LOL

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.
