I must start pre tracking again. My lunch was 700 calories! I still have 400 left for the day so as long as dinner is reasonable I will be fine.
Today I had to make a start on my next round of assignments. Ick. I haven't had enough time off to reboot, I want more time to relax!!! ARGH! It will all be over soon, just not soon enough! And the assignments are really big this time. I will just have to take them one step at a time. Kinda like weight loss, huh?
I have boxing class in a few hours and I can't wait! I really do love that class. It makes me feel strong and empowered. My classmates are so supportive, it is just a fantastic environment to be in.
My last wisdom tooth has decided to make a guest appearance this weekend. I can't sleep on my right side because my face hurts too much and I am on a steady stream of painkillers and bonjela. I hope this passes quickly!
It is pouring down with rain here and very windy. Now all my sparkfriends can gloat about their beautiful weather, after I spent all my summer posting pictures of the clear skies and sunshine.
Everyone in my house is sick. My mum has a tummy bug, the boyfriend has a cold, dad is starting to come down with a cold and I don't think I will be too far behind. I don't have time to get sick, I'm a busy woman!!!

This weekend my exercise and tracking have been non exsistant, so I will be back to tracking tomorrow, and the gym for a boxing glass. I have guessed my calories and should be in my ranges, but it is nice to know for sure.
Now I know that weekends are tough, tracking wise, and I will know to plan ahead for next time. Maybe organise and track my snacks for the day a few days ahead, and plan a couple of healthy lunches. We'll see.
The weight I lost has stayed off, so that was no fluctuation! It was only 1.7kg (3.5lb) but it was a sign that what I am doing is working and it gave me the boost I needed! I don't set weight goals because I seem to set myself up for failure that way. I will keep randomly weighing to see my results but I am still going by how my pants feel.
I got a pair of pants a few months ago because they were only $5 (I love Kmart). They were too small and tight and I couldn't sit in them. Now they fit well and are actually comfy. $5 very well spent!
I am trying to be a better sparkfriend! I am trying to make time to read more blogs and answer message board posts, as well as posting on sparkpages. Even if all I post is a I have read the blog and I do mean the woohoo!!!!

So I went to bed at 8.15 last night. Watched TV in bed for a while, but rested. Slept hard and woke up at 5.30 and couldn't get back to sleep! I should have gone for a run or to the gym, but I didn't. I'm just not a morning exerciser, even though I was up.
I have work today but its just a short shift, 9.30-4.30. I'm taking last nights dinner leftovers for my lunch and I will stop at the local fruit and veggie shop to stock up on some snacks. I can't leave the building today (nope, not even on my lunch break!) so I gotta pack what I need. Hopefully dinner tonight will be nice and healthy. No exercise means I like to eat at the lower end of my calories!
This week I don't have uni classes so I have a bit more flexibility in terms of when I can work out. This is the plan
W- Muscle sculpt
T- Water jogging (alone, because my friend can't come on a Thursday)
F- Rest (Good Friday, gym closed)
S- Rest (Working all day!)
S- Walk with Russell (he doesn't know yet...hehehe, and gym closed due to Easter Sunday)
I am being accused of getting "too obsessed with the gym" by a friend who is also trying to loose weight. I don't think 2-3 times a week is obsessive, especially since I enjoy it, I'm paying for it and it is working! Argh why do people have to be so negative about this healthy living thing. How dare I want to be a normal weight and live a long life without heart disease and other weight related health problems?
I also have 5 assignments to complete in 3 weeks. Joy. I have a strict study scheduale in place, so if I stick to it I will be fine!
And that was long, sorry!

Ok, thats a bad blog title. But dinner does smell good. Bless my mother and her use of bacon.
I have a confession....I had a coffee today. And it was probably a million calories. It was free though! I had an awesome day at work yesterday and I've worked double the shifts I'm supposed to so my boss shouted me a coffee. Soy mocha made with real chocolate with chocolate flakes on top. Oh my. It was awesome. One every now and then won't kill me, and it filled me up so much that I didn't want my morning snack.
So eating (and drinking) was average today, and no working out because I was at work the hours that the gym was open, and its raining and I'm really, really tired!
I'm off to have dinner. Night y'all

Last night my parents attended a cocktail party at my dads work and I offered to be their sober driver. Cheaper than a taxi and I was closeby; it was about 15 minutes from my work. I got there early and just joined in the fun. There were crayfish canapes involved, how could I not?
I was mindful of what I was eating and ate a few of the crayfish canapes which were severed on a very thin cracker, as well as a couple of the cheeseless pizza bites. It was my dinner so I didn't abstaine but I was aware that party food is high in calories and low in nutrition.
I think I did well considering the options. I also had 1 glass of orange juice to be social and then quit the liquids until I got home.
So surviving a cocktail party can be added to my list. Next up, Thai dinner with my workmates!
