I found out something amazing today. Amazingly scary.
I have been wearing the wrong bra size and statistically, 8/10 of you are too!
I need new bras so I went to my favourite bra shop and picked 2 in 'my size'. I tried them on and they were so uncomfortable I asked the assistant for a fitting. No wonder my bras have been painful for years; I have been wearing the wrong size. I was wearing 14C. I was fitted as 16DD. That is 2 cup sizes too small!
Wearing the wrong bra can cause pain and breast tissue damage (according to the poster in the changing room!) So, ladies, get fitted. If you got fitted a few years ago then get fitted again! I was fitted 3 years ago and in 3 years my girls really had a growth spurt!
Take care of your tatas!!!!

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!
