I've been a good girl today!

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

emoticon I went to my class this morning. I think I pushed it a bit hard because I felt really sick in the middle of the class. I got some fresh air and let my heartrate come down and rejoined the class. I finished though!

emoticon My eating has been good so far today. I had 1 piece of toast with peanut for breakfast before my class. After class I had a can on lite tuna over a serving of lemon rice. Tasty and appealing to humans and kitties alike. I need to snack on fruit today since I have been lacking in the fruits and veggies department. I will cook dinner tonight so that I can control what it is, and the veggie content!

emoticon My assignment doing hasn't started yet, but it will soon. This round of assignments is really getting me down and making me feel stupid. The otheer girls in the course are telling me they are feeling the same way though. But this feeling of stupidity is what usually sets me off into a depressive spiral, so I need to make a breakthrough soon, for my sanity

emoticon My car won't start :( I hope it isn't anything serious because all the money I have saved is for my holiday and I would rather go without my car than go without my holiday!!!!

    You're doing great! Keep your chin up with the assignments. Others are having problems too, so don't go feeling stupid because you're NOT!

Hope your car is an inexpensive fix.

I don't regret my choices

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

The past 3 days of eating have been less than impressive. Its OK, it happens. I don't regret the chinese food, or the easter egg, or the soft drinks instead of water. It happens. OK I kinda regret it because I feel terrible in my tummy.

I am, however, worried about getting back on track. I am planning on eating a healthy dinner tonight with lots of veggies to give me a kick start, and I have pretracked my breakfast and snack for tomorrow. I am hoping that is enough to get me back on track and where I wanna be. And the memory of this sick feeling!

I am also skipping my workout today. I know I shouldn't, but I'm still kinda sick and I would rather take one more day to get better than push myself and get sick again.

Tomorrow I have a class to go to, and I really like/hate the class so I will be going!

Can someone check on me tomorrow, to make sure I'm eating well and went to my class?

    Looks like -from the more recent blog- that you got yourself back on track. Good job! An off day here and there won't hurt you in the long run...I don't think so anyway!

    A set-back is just a bump in the road. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep going :-) emoticon

Its ANZAC Day

Sunday, April 24, 2011

Ode of Remeberance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.



Thank you to all our servicemen and women who gave their lives in the past, and those who continue to risk their lives now.

Thank you to my Poppa, who passed 10 years ago, for his service in Korea (Unfortunatly this is the best photo I have of him on my computer, because he died before digital cameras. I have a lot of photos of him in photo albums though)



Thank you to my Grandad, who I treasure, for his service in WWII



Thank you to my Great Grandfather, for giving his life is WWII



Thank you to my father, for his continued service in the NZ military

(No photo for privacy reasons)

Loosing weight is fun!

Saturday, April 23, 2011

It is when the scale co-operates, anyway! I am back to weighing myelf daily, or at least most days. I like to know exactly where I am at, and waiting all week is annoying for me.

So I stepped on the scale this morning and found another kilo was gone. That brings me to 1.4kg in 8 days. I did have an upwards spike a couple of days ago, which I didn't record or pay attention to because I was hoping something like this would happen!

I am still sick, but feeling much better. I am going to take today as another rest day and start exercising again tomorrow. Today I am going to spend time with my boyfriend and attempt to complete an assignment. Wish me luck!!

    Yay, good for you! DO remember, though, that a person's weight can vary up and down by quite a bit even in the course of a day, due to water retention, digestion, the female cycle, etcetera...so if you do have some ups amidst the encouraging down, don't get too worried! Just sayin'! emoticon

    I shouldn't read for pleasure during the semester either. It really does distract from so much... I'd much rather read than work out or do homework. Also, hugs and chocolate lava cake are tops.

    If I wrote these things, I'd choose such totally different questions than these. My 50 Things list would be like...
* What is something almost no one in the world likes that you admit to liking?
* Last thing you shoplifted?
* Favorite bodily fluid?
* Strangest part of the anatomy on which you've grown a rogue hair?
* What is your spirit vegetable?
* If you had to die in a natural disaster, what would it be?
* You have to make a meal that contains a large amount of insects. What do you make, and what bugs do you use?

See, isn't that more stimulating? emoticon
