This morning my alarm went off at 7.30am. And I ignored it and slept another hour instead of spending an hour at the gym.
It was the best decision I could have made! I got through my day without being tired or dragging. I neeeeded that sleep in! No biggy I can go to the gym tomorrow. There is a spinning class that I have been meaning to try, maybe I will give it a go tomorrow!
I am sitting on the couch, in my usual pozzie with my feet up on the coffee table. And my fat rolls aren't poking into my laptop like they usually do.
I am decidedly less squishy around the middle.
My jeans are loose around my thighs
My arms look great.
I just feel skinny today!
Even though I am only 3KG down I think it might be time for some progress pics. Maybe this weekend!
In other news
I was on full control this week in the class. I ended up doing great and I now love the kids in my class. They are cool little people! Today I cancelled formal maths lesson and we played maths games. I laughed so hard I nearly fell off my chair at some of the things the kids were doing! Sometimes it is nice to just have fun and play games, epecially last thing on a Friday afternoon.
I have mid placement drinks tonight. I won't be drinking since I am driving, but I will go and be social. I have a zero drink driving policy UNLESS I have a drink as soon as I get there, I am having a meal and I am staying at least an hour. Other than that I won't drink because even though I won't be over the limit I don't feel like I should be in control of a car.
And...thats it! Long weekend here! Yeeeehhaaaaaaa!
I'll start by saying that i wrote a hugly long and interesting blog post the other night. I pressed post and my internet cut out and sparkpeople ate my post. And I can't be bothered typing it again. Pat on the back for effort?
I have done 2 days of full control and gotten good reviews for both days. Full control for the rest of the placement, me thinks!
My May goals were
Here are my new goals for this month!
Do 10 tricep dips in a row - Haven't tried, to be honest! Need to work on this during free choice in boxing
Kick my workouts up to 4 times a week - Boxing 3 times per week, pools once a week!
Do 5 pushups in a row (girly ones) - Nearly ready to try real ones
Track 6 days per week
Only eat out once per fortnight - I like dining out, its my hobby. Hard to change!
Loose 5 kg (but be happy with anything!) - To be honest I haven't gotten on a scale in a while. Might check tomorrow, but don't think I have lost anything
Save enough for my holiday! - OK, some went on the credit card, but I have a plan to pay it off very quickly and so far I am sticking to it!
Finish all my assignments - And so far I have passed them all
Have fun on placement (3 weeks to go!) - Starting to have more fun now that I am getting more teaching time
Every Saturday I go to a boxing class that involves a lot of runnning. We probably run just over a KM in total and I manage to keep up. My fitness has improved a lot, and I have been given the all clear to start running again. So I'm going to try it again! Stay tuned as to when, but probably on a Thurday night after school. MUST charge my ipod. And get a new itunes card. Once I got into the groove of it I did enjoy running and I miss my awesome legs (seriously, they were amazing!) I won't be silly about it, I will be walk/jogging.
Exercise has been good. Skipped my pump class on Tuesday. I was tired, couch was comfy. Wednesday I only did 40 minutes in the pool instead of an hour because it was freezing! After 40 minutes I still hadn't warmed up, so I moved into the beautiful spa pool. Heaven.
Eating has been average, but not awful.
School has been busy, I have so much to do! I just keep thinking about my holiday!
