Morning all (or evening, or afternoon, and for many of you, happy Friday!)
Just some random bits that I want to blog but that don't really warrent a whole post.
I pin pointed where I ate a lot of my calories, breakfast! I have peanut butter on toast most mornings, and I love it so. But, 400 calories for peanut butter on toast? No thanks! So now I only have one slice instead of 2 and I have fruit on the side. I don't even miss the second piece of toast and it is nice to get in a serving or 2 of fruit so early in the day. And my calories have been cut by 25%, allowing me to eat an afternoon snack, which stops me over indulging at dinner. Calorie shuffling!
I like going to the gym, but I don't think I like spinning class, since I have skipped 2 this week. I am going to try and get up an hour earlier and go to the boxing class instead. I want to do a class on Saturday and it makes more sense for it to be one that I like and therefore will go to. I know spinning is good exercise but that alone is not making me want to go!!
Next Saturday I am working, and I think the Saturday after as well. My boss is lovely but fully takes advantage of my good nature and work ethic and sticks me with extra shifts all the time. I have plans for Saturdays, like the gym and uni work, my life isn't all about my job!
The manderin I am eating is rather dry.
Russell and I are toying with the idea of going on holiday in July. To Rarotonga. We are going to see how our finances pan out and if we can save enough for the flights and accommodation ($2000!) in the next month, as well as pay his mum back and some of what we owe his dad, then we will book the trip and work on saving spending money and food money. I need a holiday and something to look forward to and I think a week in Raro might just do the trick! Wish me luck and many saving vibes! Luckily Russell gets paid for a few of his jobs in lump sums, so we should have nearly all of what we need coming in in the next few weeks. I'm not doing the happy dance yet, more of a happy shuffle.
And I'll leave you with that. I have 2 super hard assignments calling my name and I should probably get going on them. I want to go hard today and get them nearly done. I can dooooo it!
