Had a good week but am sore because my shoulder is playing up and
cannot move it from side to side or upwards.
Must've been the weeding, so now have to rest I suppose.
Last night was so muggy and humid and it is now as well. Unbelievable
really after all the rain we've had. I have just done a load of washing and am debaing whether to get my son to hang it out or just put it on the airer inside.
Terrible to think that I won't be able to use my right arm but I think it is one way of getting DS to do some work around the house.
Let me see: vacuuming needs doing, as well as windows and of course the blinds...
Poor me but on the other hand I can just do treadmill and watch him burn up his unwanted calories.
Tomorrow is a big day as I have set myself a goal to start tracking food and to help my son eat healthier.
I may not be online too much as study starts to get serious again and I want to keep up with the Honours marks, and that means working hard. I will hopefully motivate my son to work hard as well in his business studies.
Am enjoying the rainy weather and some are saying the monsoonal rains are here and there have been some places with flooding.
I can now hopefully get into a routine and focus on other things and hopefully stay on track with food and exercise.
I have still not posted photos so hopefully we can work on that new skill.
Have a good week everyone.
Today was fine at first. I was happy and enjoying the rain and somehow I lost it
and became very depressed.
Then the merry- go- round of the" zone" of comfort eating set in.
What's done is done and must move on tomorrow. I did not even go to the Food and Wine Expo. It probably would have been a healthier option!
Why do I do this when I have so much to be thankful for?
Anyway, tomorrow has to be a better and more mindful day. I will start my new exercise DVD. I actually did 15 minutes and loved it but then it just kept stopping so I don't know if I can return as I bought it from Amazon online.
I so much want to do this, so will get on to them to see how a faulty DVD can be replaced. I paid $7.99 postage and that is stressing me out. But no, I do not want to dwell on this. Things will be better after a good night's sleep...
I had my hair cut really short as I found it was too thick and I needed to cool off
Have been trying to upload some pics onto my page but still no luck. Maybe as this is a new computer and my son has not loaded Office and other programs, so hopefully we can get it up and going this weekend.
We had the storm 2 nights ago but it did not rain here yesterday and temps are lows of 22 and highs of 27 - 29 Celsius. We still ahve February to go with this heat and we are waitng for the cooler weather. I sometimes wish I was back in Canada to experience some cold weather right now. Anyone want to swap??
I was very good so far and had my fruit and cereal and now am going to do an exercise dvd and then who knows, may go down for a swim..
Yesterday I went out to the back of the garage and turned on the outside shower and just stood under the water as it was warm ( I had been weeding and got so hot). Actually I must get there more often to cool off. Can you imagine a wet drenched oldie in a wet t-shirt... Well don't as my son took one look at me and said I looked like a drowning rat and to please take off that t shirt...
Oh well, it was nice to dream for a while that I was young and beautiful. Hey I said to son, I am still beautiful aren't I? He just looked and muttered something like "my mum's going bananas".
Have a nice weekend everyone. I have been going to bed earlier and found that I am catching up on sleep because I have been up late watching these 5 set tennis matches.
The women's final is on at 6 30 tonight so hopefully it won't go later than 9 30p as I really need my sleep.
Finally a bit of welcome relief. Mind you it is still hot but I can live with it. Here I am complaining about the heat while the Northern Hemisphere is in the throes of freezing weather.
I don't have as much joint pain and the good news is that rain is forecast for the next 3 days. I plan to go to a Wine and Food expo with tasting... I have to be really careful though as it will be like a buffet and sometimes the eyes are bigger than the stomach.
Changing the subject, I have just seen the most amazing footage on the AM show. 5 Aussie guys with a shark and a crocodile on the beach while taking photographs on their fishing trip and they hit the croc over the head as it lunged for the shark.
If you haven't seen it yet, I am sure you will soon and it is so amazing. The croc did go back in the water and they also let the shark go back. These guys were on a fishing trip and now they are world famous. Seems even the carnivorous animals are always thinking of their belly and filling it up. My point being they hunt and eat only what they need and are active all the time.
Today I am off to the volunteering job and then a long walk. I finally got the DVD "Walk off your belly fat" so I will try it and see what I can do with my "belly fat".
I can't wait to go "Walking in the rain" and get this old body on the move again.
