    Aw. I guess things are going better, yes? Are you glad you decided to stick it out, and is Russell making an effort to hang on to you? By which I mean, HE'D BETTER BE.
Happy Anniversary!!

I don't have time for a life anymore!

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I swear, its true! I'm working 5 days a week, uni 2 days a week, a placement to prep for...oy! I'm struggling to find time to spark! My eating is suffering because I don't have time to shop! Too much relying on fast food!

My exercising is not suffering (much)! I am still going to the gym and pools as much as I can. I have had to temporarily drop my Monday night boxing class because my boss has decided that I can work Mondays. I don't finish in time to make it to any classes, so I haven't been going :( I am also working an extra long shift this Thursday, so I am loosing a workout day. I'll make up for it next week!

Workout plans for this week:

Monday - Off
Tuesday - Water walking for 1 hour
Wednesay - Muscle sculpt class and boxing class
Thursday - Off
Friday - Off
Saturday - Boxing class
Sunday Off

Fun plans for the week:

Tuesday - Dinner out and Danny Bhoy
Wednesday - My 5 year anniversary with my man. We are spending the whole day together :D Can't wait!

Thats all, for now. My head is cloudy thanks to this cold that my delightful boyfriend gave to me. Again. Ick!

    Congrat's on the anniversary.

You know, if you write out a grocery list and go into the supermarket, flying around getting ONLY what is on that list, you will find that you time shopping is much reduced. Perhaps you could do it immediately after an exercise class and do it once a week. Have some frozens on stand-by in the freezer for when you run out of fresh. Bulk cook stews/soups and containerize them in individual serves and have them in the freezer so that when you haven't got time, you have a quick "go to" health meal. I do this all the time and it really DOES save a lot of time and money. You get to take advantage of the specials, and it only takes one lot of cooking! I managed this while working 60-80 hours a week, PLUS having a home with 2 children and a husband to cook for. It REALLY DOES work :-)

Nothing has happened, so no blog!

Friday, May 13, 2011

I feel odd not blogging every day, let alone not blogging for 3 days! Nothing has really happened though!

I handed in 3 more assignments! Only 4 more to go for the semester! I am so relieved to have them all over and done with. WHEW!

I have been working too much, as usual. 5 days this week. And I'm part time!

I've been going to the gym and the pools regularly. Weight is still going up and down like a yo-yo. Silly scale!

Tonight the man and I are going out to a 24th in the city. Should be fun. A few drinks, some not so good for me food, a bit of time to relax.

And....thats all! Really not too interesting. I should be back to more regular blogging soon!

The end is in sight!

Monday, May 09, 2011

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!

    Skipping a workout here and there is totally fine! There is more to life!

I hope things work out with your friend!

    Yahooo on the end being near! Exciting, huh? Yes!

I hope Jemma gets to move home to NZ! I'll keep my fingers crossed that works out!

Japanese food is delicious

Saturday, May 07, 2011

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.
