Ummm...I didn't work out today. I know, I know, naughty me, what about my week of no excuses. Well, I have excuses and I have reasons for not walking today
1. Monsoon going on outside
2. Tired to the point where I just can't move
3. Wanted to spend time with the boy
So there ya go. I promise I'll go on a nice looooong walk tomorrow to make up for it. And I'll be going in these:
My camera is elsewhere, so for now an internet pic will have to do!
My new shoes Pearl and Mavis, and I think we'll be very happy together. Yes, I named my shoes. I name a lot of things and they always have...traditional names. My cars have been called; Lesley, Gertrude, Mavis (my left shoe is named after this car!) and Hattie.
Anyways, I spent about $40 more then I wanted, but these gave me plently of support where needed (arches and outside of my feet) and they have a 1000km life. And they are purple and sooooo pretty. And comfy. And I'm in love. And they gave me free socks. Tomorrow shall be a nice walk, no worrying about my feet!
Also, I had breakfast late today. Only by about an hour, but it made a difference! I was running late so I ate a banana once I got to school. About an hour later I was shaking uncontrollablly. Lucky I was planning and not in class, so I was able to grab a snack, I had dried fruit. I thought the sugar would help. It did, but it showed me how important it is to make time for breakfast, and to have something more then a banana! Guess I can't do that anymore!

I have 3 pairs of black work pants. One pair mountains too big (stretched out over the years), one fits well and one too small. The pair that fits well feel victim to thigh holes (you know the ones!) and needed to be thrown out. On a whim (and I couldn't find my belt) I tried on the too small ones. And they fit! Not well sitting down, but standing up they are great!
AND I'm down 2.5kg even. That is one sixth of the weight I want to loose!
OK, now I've got energy to burn!

Rest day. I did consider getting up and working out anyway. I set my alarm for 6am and said that if I wanted to get up I would, if not then no pressure. I didn't want to get up, so that was cool, back to sleep I went.
School was horrible today. We did art, which was cool, but I usually feel so together and in control and today I just didn't. I think its because I'm tired.
In other news, I'm tired. Like, can't form sentences or remember where I parked my car tired. I need to weekend like I've never needed a weekend before!
Work tonight, but I'm gonna sign out early and do some work. And probably have some eats there. I...just honestly want to do some comfort eating. One night isn't going to kill me.
Walk tomorrow morning! And tomorrow afternoon I'm getting...wait for it...NEW SHOES! Thanks Mummy, for giving me money to get them! My mummy rocks. I mentioned last night on the phone that I was going to get some sports shoes when we had money and she told me not to wait and that they were on her. Isn't she great? And no, you can't borrow her.

My morning start at 6am. I snoozed, I made excuses and at 6.20 I got up for my walk because I knew I would have to come on here to blog and I would have to say that I had failed at my no excuses week. So up I got, dressed, shoed, out the door. I decided to just do 3km today and I'm glad I did! About a km from home it started pouring down. Rain, hail, cats, dogs. I kept walking (faster at this point) home but I ended up getting soaked. The rain was so hard that it woke up my boyfriend! He stumbled into the lounge, keys in hand ready to drive and look for me just as I walked in the door.
My legs have been really tight and sore after my walks so I am going to try to focus on getting some good stretching in when I get home from them. I usually just do one or two stretches for a couple of seconds and call it good. But this morning I stretched for a good 2-3 minutes and my legs feel fine!
In other news, I was on full control today! The kids were great, I had a great time and art was soooooo much fun! Just need to plan, reflect and...do lots of other teacher stuff. It never ends!

Today was OK. I have had some chocolate. Nothing major and I don't feel bad, but I had it!
Exercise...does yoga count? I'm up for trying new things, and stretching everything out sounded soooooooo good. So that was my exercise for the day! I know, I know, I said I would walk everyday. Sue me, I tried something new! The calorie burn isn't much...at all...but that is OK! Its exercise! We will be back to our regularly schedualed walking tomorrow at 6am!
I tried quinoa. I like it. My prawns that I had with it let it down though, too oily and no other flavour. I should have garliced them up a bit me thinks! But still a good meal and tonnes of leftovers. Lunch, anyone?
I have pretty much full control tomorrow. Wish me luck everyone. AND I get to do art! Hell yeah, it is gonna be hella fun! We are making printing plates out of meat trays (hit up your butcher!) and making prints. Love it, I'm so excited!
