Today was the day of eating out. I always buy my lunch on a Friday. I think it is because I used to be allowed to buy my lunch at school every Friday and it has just kinda stuck. So I had sushi for lunch, my usual.
Breakfast was a banana walnut muffin and a coffee consumed while driving. I am aware this is frowned upon, but I am the master of eating and driving. Both eyes on the road!
Then dinner. I arrived home to Indian takeaways. I could have made something else, but my mum picked up Indian because she knows I like it. What could I do?
HOWEVER...My portions were decent. I knew I was eating calorie dense food, so I made sure my portions were smaller than usual. Sometimes your best is all you can do.
I gave the boyfriend a shopping list, so I could have some good food and snacks over the weekend. Yeah...I knew I was dreaming, thinking he would do the shopping. I'll have to do it tonight, and I have worked 11 hours today!
I worked in 2 stores today! The store close to my house (my store is a 20 minute drive) was short staffed so my boss sent me there for the afternoon, since it is only 2 minutes away from my house. Its nice to have a change of pace and work with some new people. But they close an hour later than I am used to, and half of my lunch break was spent driving to the other shop, so it made me really tired!
Annnnnnnnnnd... The rugby world cup started tonight. We have a great view so we saw the fireworks display from our house, and we watched the opening ceremony. If you have any interest in New Zealand/Rugby/Amazing light shows, I would recommend youtubing the ceremony, because it was off the hook. Now, I'm sick of the world cup, is it over sooooon?

I am just so tired. All the freaking time. Seriously, it doesn't matter if I get 8 hours sleep or 12 hours. I haven't been waking up refreshed and it is seriously affecting my workouts. Meaning I would rather take a nap than do them.
I don't know if this is because of everything I have on, or if I should see a doctor and look for an underlying reason. I am struggling to get energy to go about my daily activities, and even a walk sounds like too much work. I am scared that my weight is just going to keep going up and up because I am not working out as much (or at all) and I am slipping back into sugary foods and drinks to give me a pep.
Nothing much to be done, but I just wanted to share.
Something that isn't helping is an issue that I am having with a lecturer. I have brought it to the attention of the head of school, but there really isn't much he can do without a formal complaint, which I don't really want the drama of.
If only life was simple, aye?
On the bright side my eating has been really good today, so I am proud of myself for that!

Firstly, I got an assignment back today and it had an A on it. I danced a little.
Secondly, I got through my mammoth weeks with my sanity intact. However, my ass is more jiggly then ever, so its off to the gym for me. My eating has also been bad, so I plan on going shopping tomorrow and getting some good food in the house, since the cupboards are bare and I have been naughty with the take aways lately!!
I CAN drop 10kg by my birthday.
Thirdly, I MISS YOU GUYS!!!

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Yeah, it didn't happen. Things got crazy busy and once again my own health and wellbeing got pushed aside. It happens
I had plans for a run this afternoon, but after staying up half the night to finish an assignment it just wasn't happening. I had a nap instead. Priorities. However, my assignment is nearly done, 3 weeks early. It means I can focus on the other...7? 2 are group assignments which is always tough since we get along REALLY well. We even got told off in class today for laughing during class. We need to settle down and do some work!
In other news I passed an assignment today!!!!!!!!!! C+, but a pass is a pass and I didn't do as badly as I could have. This has given me a lot of confidence because a C from this lecturer is like a B from anyone else!
This week I am working 40 hours, as well as having to do many assignments. I have no planned exercise but I will try and walk when I can. Next week I only have to work 20 hours so I plan on picking up the exercise a bit more. I would like to drop 10kg by xmas, so I really need to get onto it.
In other, other news, my grandad is doing well. I went to visit him on Friday and his curtain was half closed, all I could see was his bed, which was empty. I said to his roommates "Oh, he's not gone and died has he?". I heard a laugh from behind the curtain and found grandad sitting up, in a chair, eating dinner. BIG progress. And he laughed at my joke, which means he is fine. I have a morbid sense of humour, clearly, but I think grandad is just grateful that I'm realistic. He is hopefully being moved to a rehab unit closer to home this week. He will still get round the clock care, but will be encouraged to be more independent so hopefully he can go home soon.
So thats my life. I am still around, but I will be very busy this week. Don't miss me too much!

I like having a plan, and I like telling people what I am going to be doing so I am somewhat accountable. Barring anymore family emergencies I will hopefully stick to the plan!
M - Playing hookey. Run and eat well. Do sociopolitical assignment
T - Day off. Spinning, dentist and assignments
W - Uni. 5pm boxing class
T - Run then work
F - Off - Working
S - Walk after work, if I can be bothered
S - Off -Working. Assignments after work
So thats the plan. I have done some shopping and gotten some healthy snacks. I have little bags of scroggin (trail mix) in my handbag and car to avoid fast food stops.
I really, really need to get back on track. I feel like my life is spiralling out of control and my health and fitness is something I can control.
