The end of my assignments, that is!
I finished my resources last night. They look awesome, I should have taken pictures! I have flashcards and a matching/memory game designed for 5 year olds learning about modes of transportation. I am very proud, I hope my lecturer likes them too! I have a couple more hours to go with the rest of my assignments, they should be ready to hand in on Thursday! Then I need to write my goals for placement and then I go on placement!!! YAY!
So, I skipped my worout last night, which I HATE doing. Seriously. But the stars just weren't aligning for me last night., Firstly I left my gym gear at home, which meant I would have had to detour home on my way to the gym. Because I got every red light on the way home and the traffic was awful (can't wait for the new motor way to go in, 4 months to go!) I was running late for my class anyways. I wouldn't have made it, so I skipped it. I thought it was a bad idea, but it wasn't. I had dinner with my family, worked on assignments, watched some Sex and the City and saw my boyfriend. Sometimes its worth it, right? I'm going to the gym tonight and Wednesday, as well as the pools on Wednesday night with a friend. I think I will be fine, as long as it was just one night!!!
And now for something completely different....
My bestie, Jemma, moved to Aussie a few years ago to live with her mum when she had her baby. She is a single mum, and wanted to be with family. Fair enough, but I miss her!!!! Well, on Sunday night she emailed me and said that her mum is probbaly moving to the other side of Aussie, and if that happened then she would come back to Auckland! I am so excited! I love my friend, and she is the mother of my gorgeous nephew who I haven't seen since just after he was born (he is nearly 3!). Clearly I am beyond excited about this possibility. Cross your fingers for me that is happens!

Firstly, happy mothers day to all the mamas out there. This morning my mum got a hug, a pair of slippers and a pair of earrings. Tonight she gets the night off cooking. Sweet deal :D
Last night was my mother in laws birthday dinner. In attendance was myself, Russell, Russell's parents, brother and brothers girlfriend. Because there were so many of us everyone decided to just order a whole heap of food and we could share. It was a good plan, and we all got to try everything. I decided I would have 1 bite from each plate, 2 if it was really good :D. I stuck to this rule for most of the night, which helped me to control my eating. I still got full though! I also limited the fried food, like tempura. Then everyone had dessert. I couldn't find anyone to share with me, so I just ordered one for myself. I should have skipped it, I was so full!
Today I am working, and then probably cooking dinner and finishing my science assignment. Joy. I need these assignments to be done. Russell said he would help me to make my resources on Monday night, so that is one less worry for me!
No work out today, its my rest day. My shoulders are really sore, I need a good massage. Maybe on Friday night? As my reward for finishing my assignments?
Lets rundown my workout plans for the next week.
M - Boxing
T - Muscle Max (weight lifting)
W - Boxing
T - Pools? (If I have time, I may need to work on my assignments instead
F - Off
S - Boxing
S - Off
At least 4 days, 5 if I can fit it in. I love my pool workouts, I should try harder to fit them in!
Also, track everyday and eat good food within my calorie limits.

Yesterday (and today, and everyday in my near future) I was sooooo tired. I was dragging at work (and ended up getting angry with my boss, but thats another story) and when I got home from work I was just in the mood for giving up. I had pizza, and it wasn't that good. I had wine, that was good. I got 2 seasons of Sex in the City for $30, that was awesome! And I went to bed really early, which was needed.
I am just so stressed, and I have so much on my plate. I still have one more assignment to do for the bundle that are due on Friday and I am just so sick of reading academic material and then making sense of it and writing about it. I need a break and Rarotonga can't come soon enough! I am so behind because I have been picking up extra shifts at work, and I keep getting asked to do more. I have had to put my foot down and say no, or I am not going to have time to do my assignments! And then, everytime we save nearly enough money to go on holiday Russell ends up finding something else to spend our money on. I keep explaining to him that I need this holiday more then he needs toys for his car.
I am keeping up with the workouts, it is the only thing that is keeping me sane right now. 4-5 hours a week to think about nothing, just zone out and work out.
In summary, uni sucks, I work too much, I miss my boyfriend, I want to book my holiday, I need to go on my holiday, and working out is actually non negotiable right now!
