Sunday morning thoughts

Saturday, February 04, 2012

emoticon Well hello, sparkworld. I am writing this after 9 (!) blissful hours of sleep. And after a mental breakdown. Ya know when you are so tired that you can't fall asleep? It feels like you have forgotten how. That was me last night. I had a major breakdown, and my boyfriend was so worried he even said sorry for his part in it (he has said sorry to me 3 times in our 6 year relationship). So there is that.

emoticon I decided that my weekly weigh in day would be Saturdays. Well, I've decided to change that to Sundays. The reason is that on Fridays I do my weights at the gym, which means that I am holding onto some serious water on a Saturday. So the past 2 Saturdays my weight has been up, which is discouraging, BUT on Sunday I have been reweighing myself and recording a loss. Yesterday I weighed 83.4 (+200g), but this morning I weighed 83.0 (-400g).

emoticon In slightly related news OMG I WEIGH 83 KILOS. Total loss of 4.3kg. The 82's are so close!!!

emoticon I have had 2 non-scale victories this week. On Friday I went out for dinner with 2 girlfriends (and made a very healthy and yummy choice of a custom noodle box) and they both said twice how awesome I am looking and said my jeans were too big for me. I pulled my jeans out a little, and there was a definite gap! Also, mum told me that I just keep getting skinnier!

emoticon Getting a massage was a fantastic idea. It was beyond needed. I would even go as far as to say it was medically necessary. Apparently I went at the right time - 2 weeks after starting weights - and my muscles were at the point of exhustion and filled with lactic acid. My massage lady (Diane, magician, saint) said she wished she could just take my muscles and ring out the lactic acid, because there was so much. She spent most of the time on my back, which was the area of most concern. She also said I had tight butt muscles on my right side, so she massaged my butt too. Not as weird as it sounds, I swear. She showed my some stretches that I could do to keep my hips lose, since that is what caused the tight butt muscles.

emoticon Lastly, I have been having major hip and foot pain after running. After seeing the lovely (good looking) man at the shoe store I have been diagnosed with extreamly high arches. I have gel inserts and have been recommended to get pronating shoes next time I need new sneakers. Hopefully that helps!

    Yay! You're doing so great with dropping the kilos! I love the NSVs as well. Those are the things we need to keep us rolling if/when the weight loss slows.

Sounds like the massage was just what you needed. I hope the gel inserts help your foot and knee pain.

Have a great week!

My thoughts in pictures

Pinterest is addictive.

So funny. Finding this funny may make me a bad person. I'm OK with that.

I have lost 9 of these. That is something to be proud of.

This is what I have to remember as I shuffle along on my runs!

I am hoping habit will help as I get busier and busier. I will never be too busy to give myself 30 minutes to go to the gym!

Very, very true! Something to rememeber as my weight loss slows and I have to look at how far I have come rather than how far I have to go!

Remember this when I fall off the wagon a little!

WOW why did I blog last night...

Friday, February 03, 2012

I was so tired last night that I honestly don't remember writing that blog. Seriously.

In other news...I'm still tired. The boyfriend went out to a BBQ/drinking last night. I called just as I was going to bed to see if he needed a ride home. He said no, he would sleep over. At 3AM he called, drunk as hell, and said that he needed picking up and I had to pick him up because he picked me up at 3am once (3 years ago, and it was prearranged, and he hadn't started a job that week). So I got a couple of hours of good sleep and then pretty much dozed all night because I couldn't get back to sleep once we got back home. Good times. I may fall asleep on the massage table this afternoon. Or go back to sleep now. Can't decide.

    You need a massage Miss! Hope your teaching job is everything you hoped it would be and then more.

Don't be afraid to get some extra pampering, I don't know any teacher who doesn't need it!!

Song - Only to be - Six60

Teacher only day was today. Talk about overwhelmed! I have the most supportive group of teachers who are all more than happy for answer all of my silly little questions, but it was still a lot to take in. A few lovely ladies gave me a pep talk and sent me home around 4, which was needed. There were only 2 down points of the day. The first was that the lino was cleaned on the weekend, and my lovely planned and set out furniture was dumped in the middle of the room and I had to set up all over again. Argh. Also, my tutor teacher is bossy and redecorated a wall in my room. I hate it. I loved everything else in my room except that wall. She meant well but I just felt bulldozed. Ah well, I think she was just enthusiastic.

This afternoon I was wiped. I decided to go out for a little walk instead of going to the gym. I ended up running. I had a 5 minute warm up, 20 minutes walk/run (over 12 minutes running!) and 5 minutes cool down. Happy with that! I wanted to get in a working routine from day one, so that it will (hopefully!) be automatic later on.

Right, wish me luck for tomorrow. I'm gonna need it!
