Twas a lovely day in Auckland today. Sunny, but not too hot. Exactly the weather I love! I didn't do nearly enough work, but I got some other things done!
Above is a picture of my shiny, new laptop. I was very lucky to get this! My mum decided to pay for half of it as an early birthday present, and the store had an interest free deal for the other half, so it is only costing me $10 a week. I love my new laptop, although I really wanted the pink one!
I went for a run this afternoon. It was 6K all up, with about 4-4.5K running. It wasn't an awesome run because my asthma was acting up due to everyone having their fireplaces going and the air being really smokey. I hope I'll be ready to run my 5K this weekend!
I discovered this at the supermarket today:
It is thin crust, and only 200cal for a quarter of the pizza. I had half the pizza, which was 400 cal. Add a salad (I didn't, I should have) and you have a decent and quick dinner! Will be getting this again!

I obviously can't go into much detail about my job on here, for confidnetiality reasons, so I will just sum up my day in numbers
Games of soccer and rippa rugby played: 1 of each
Children sent to the sickbay: 3. I'll mention here that soccer and rippa are supposed to be non contact sports
Number of children involved in a fist fight: 2. Not the same children sent to the sickbay.
Number of children who are spending the rest of their school lives on the naughty seat for speaking disrespectfully about a teacher (me) within ear shot: 1
Number of fries I am going to eat tonight with my once a month burger treat? Many.

A big thanks to Mrs Principal for the title!
Yeah, I hurt. My butt hurts. When I sat on my chair today I was wiggling around to get comfy (for the 5 seconds I am actually on the chair, to take the roll) and I couldn't. I finally realised that sitting just hurt, and it wasn't the poor chairs fault.
I like to teach on the floor, with the kids. On their level, ya know. Yeah, how many children does it take to pull Miss Bubble off the floor because her legs are so sore she gets stuck? Many. Now we know.
After my weights session yesterday I thought it would be an awesome idea to go for a run today. Ya know, since I signed up for a 5k and everything. Well I ran 4k and I felt awesome until I stopped. Now I am just in more pain. Joy.
I hearby declare that tomorrow be a rest day, and that once I finish work I will come home, put my feet up and watch TV. Watch out, this 23 year old has a wiiiiiild Friday night planned!

I had a fantastic April. Lets hope it becomes a trend!
Weight goal: Lose a kilo. That seems achievable and would bring me to 78.6kg.
Nutrition: Iím still focusing on getting in more fruit and veg and less junk. I am also going to start tracking more often. Lets aim for 3 days per week!
Water: I drink heaps of water, this one is fine!.
Exercise: Run my first 5k!
Exercise #2: Start my new weights program. I met with my trainer last night and pretty much told him to give me a mans program. I told him I wanted to try high weight, low reps, and he was really excited to get started. Apparently I am the first woman to ever ask him for a program like that!
Thats it, pretty simple!
And for fun, a 4 month progress pic!
NOW for my amazing story!
OK, so my dads car was stolen from outside our house at 5am on Sunday morning. He woke up when the engine started and looked out the window to see the car driving away. It is at this point that I should point out that the car was unlocked, with the keys in it. Yeah, we did that waaaay too often. Of course he called the police right away, but where we live is very close to a motorway, so the car could have been anywhere.
This morning, I decided to go a different way to work. My usual route was backed up with traffic, so I ducked around the back way and down some side streets, which is quicker when the traffic was bad. AND wouldn't you know it, I FOUND THE CAR! Parked on the side of the road! I owned the car for 4 years before my dad bought it off me, so I know that car. I called the police right away to tell them I found it and asked them to send someone. Then mum came to wait for the police because I had to get to work. We think that the theives dumped the car when they realised there was no petrol in it and they wouldn't get far without a petrol station (and those have security cameras).
How cool is that?!
