were yummy! Were a waste of calories? Were OK just this once (I haven't had McDonalds for months)?
This morning I had to get up at 5am to take the boyfriend to the bus. He is away for the weekend. 5am and me, we don't get on. 6.15 has been hard enough for night owl me, but 5am? Nope, not pretty.
So I was driving home from the bus stop and all I could think about was hotcakes. Fluffy, warm, drenched in syrup. Oh goodness, I needed it now. My will power was obviously still asleep, so I had some. And they were good. But not something I would eat again for breakfast. I think I just needed the sugar or something. And while they filled my early morning sugar craving, I'm already hungry again and I don't know how I'm gonna make it to 11... I'm gonna try and make it, drink lots of water. I want to eat on my normal timetable today.
I have already planned on eating well today. I did plan on walking, but I had 5 hours sleep, so thats not happening. Lets aim for tomorrow.
Hmmm...so the day isn't a total waste, but I wish I had just come home and had a smoothie instead of the hotcakes.... Live and learn!

Another pound had left the building! I stepped on the scales this morning (I weigh twice a week, Wed and Sun) and thought it said 83.7, so up .4 of a kilo! I was mad, since I had been eating well and exercising. BUT when I opened my sleepy morning eyes it actually said 82.7! Yahooo! It's not falling off at any great speed, but its going and at this rate I will meet my August goal!
I'm off to the movies tonight. I usually don't go to movies (I think they are a rip off, I'd rather buy the DVD and watch it as many times as I like) but this is fundraising for my cousin, so off I go. I am going to have a small popcorn if I feel like it, and I'm going to drink water only.
I found grey hair today. I freaked out. I was at school so couldn't cry and scream and say "why me?" but I felt like it. I'm 21! With grey hair. Whats next, wrinkes? Gimme a chance please body! I have my father to blame, he started going grey at 4 and was 90% grey by his 30th. Damn genetics.
I think thats everything I needed to get out of my system... I had an awesome day at school today. One kid made me laugh soooo hard. It makes me remember WHY I want to be a teacher. And one kid made me sooooo proud when he was telling the main teacher what I taught them. Its a "yay, he got it!" and its a feeling that can't be described!
Have a Sparkie day everyone!

I've just finished day 2 of my placement. All teachers should get paid $1,000,000 a year, coz we work hard! I'm shattered and its only day 2!
I got up early this morning for a walk, just under 3km. Would have been longer but I was running out of time, so I did what I could. My iPod died about 300 metres from my house. Oh, how tempting it was to just turn around. But on I walked, listening to the sounds of the world. Kinda nice, but not something I'd do by choice.
Tonight I left some of my dinner on my plate. My mother would have been horrified! But I was happy that I am learning that I don't have to eat food just because it is there. I was full, so I stopped eating. I may use the leftovers (chicken) in a salad or something tomorrow.
Even though I am full I still want something sweet. 21 years of always having dessert is a hard habit to kick! I got some POM white iced tea on sale at the supermarket, so I'm sipping on that to see if it kicks my sweet tooth. Only 80cal per serving, 2 servings per bottle. So even if I finish the bottle I'll still be within range.
This post is very mismash, a lot like me!
Until tomorrow, Sparkworld!

I know I live in Auckland. I know that it rains a lot here, and it is windy and randomly sunny on the days and times I can't be outside. But since I am starting to get desperate, I'm asking anyway.
Please, please, make it be fine in the mornings so I can walk before school. Please? It is the only time I can get out and it would mean a lot to me if you could find it in your heart to keep the rain away until I no longer want to be outside.

Well, its already the second here, but that won't stop me from putting my goals down!
1. Exercise at least 3 times a week, aim for 4-5
2. Find another form of exercise I like besides walking. It hasn't stopped raining in 4 days and I don't like walking in the rain!
3. Stay under my calorie goal 6 days a week
4. Start doing some strength training. Just because I feel silly doing it doesn't mean I don't have to do it!
5. Be under 80kg by the 30th
6. Rock this placement!
I am on placement in a school for the whole month. Excited? Yes! I love teaching, I was born to do it, so I love being able to get out into a school. Being on placement means I work 80+ hour weeks though, so I'm going to have to work hard to get my exercise in! I am going to try to go to bed early so I can get up early and work out, even if it is just a quick walk around the block. If all else fails I can go for a (non-sweaty!) walk at lunch time. I also tend to join in if the kids are doing PE or fitness, coz thats just how I roll. I really feel the kids respond better if they know that you are willing to do what they do!
Have a great month everyone!
