The answer, my friends, is 3.
So I headed on down to my Mama's place after work tonight. My dad is away and I thought she might like some company. She knows how hard I work so she had a bottle of Pinot Gris chilling and dinner ready. After dinner she gave me a heavenly foot massage and painted my toenails. I never wanna leave, I wanna stay home forever.
Thanks to everyone for your kind comments about my cancelled holiday. You are all right, it is better to be home where I am safe. I may pop up north for a night or 2 (and take some pictures!) instead, but what is certain is that I am having that week off work. No matter what. Full Stop.
My next day off is... I don't know when. I have picked up some casual waitressing work, so I am doing that the next 2 weekends, as well as working my usual job. Girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. That money will be M.I.N.E. Anyways, the event this weekend is a wedding and I am on the bridal table. Easy peasy, could do it with my eyes shut. 6 years (on and off) of waitressing...Its a good skill to have! I think I'll save up and get myself something nice :)
Ummmm...what else? Not much, really. Working heaps, as you all know. Oh, and I am going to buy some goggles. When the pool reopens next week I'm in like sin. I'm going to try and go a couple of afternoons after work. Knee is really sore, so swimming is the only thing that doesn't hurt. I'll get clearance from the physio, of course. And I'll update you all tomorrow night about what he said. My appointment is at sparrows fart tomorrow morning, before work, so I will give you an update when I get home.
Right, that was long and rambly....Goodnight, my friends!

So there is currently major flooding in and around Brisbane, where I was going for my holiday. 10 people are dead and nearly 100 are missing. The friend who I was going to stay with is waiting to see if she will be evacuated. In short, it is a mess over there, and my heart goes out to everyone who is caught in it. Hopefully everything will be stored to normal soon.
In light of the recent flooding I have been advised to cancel my holiday. I am bummed, but there is nothing I can do about it. I'm happy to stay here and be safe.
In other news
Eating has been OK. Exercise has been on hold due to a knee injury. I hurt it running a few weeks ago. I'm seeing a physio on Friday morning who will hopefully be able to sort it out. Its starting to effect my work.
Thats all she wrote

I made a decision. I'm going on holiday. I work too damn hard and I deserve a break. So what does one do after making this decision?
Think of somewhere cheap to go.
And I have the answer!!
My 3rd best friend (yes I rank my best friends, and yes, they know) lives in Aussie, about an hour north of Brisbane. With my nephew who is 2 and the custest thing to walk the earth. I emailed her and she replied saying she has a place for me to sleep and she would be thrilled to have me visit. So I'm off for a week! A whole week of sitting on the beach and relaxing and doing absolutly nothing. And I'm just a short drive away from the Gold Coast, so I can stay with some family if my friend gets sick of me.
The flights are gonna cost $350 (I have $250 saved and I'm getting $100 of overtime next week) so then I just need some spending money (Russell is getting $200 next week which he said I could have and I should be able to put away a bit more) and I'm golden.
So, yay for holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In addition, today I ate a smoothie for breakfast (yes, ate, it was very thick, more like sorbet), sushi for lunch and I snacked on cherries. And a bowl of ice cream. Maybe two. Did I mention its hot here? Russell is cooking dinner, devilled sausages with potatoes and fresh silverbeet from the neighbours vegie garden (they have heaps and extended an open invite to anything in there). I also worked all day and had lunch with my parents who visited me at work.
Thats all, folks!

And I haven't even had chocolate today!
So hummus is good in small portions, but is pretty calorie packed otherwise. Especially when you eat most of the tub. It was mighty delish! Pita breads are also good....One at a time. Not all 3.
Damn delish food, its not fair!
OK, I have got the healthy food part down...Next stop, portion control!!
