My SOUVENIR from SYDNEY AUSTRALIA and a little something for YOU too!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, March 31, 2012

This is about my little souvenir I picked up the last time I was in Sydney Australia. And a little gift for you too.




pics from tourists destinations and bug Australia



In the Spring 5% Challenge out next destination is Sydney Australia. I got the plane off the ground this morning for the Clovers. The last time I was in Australia (wink wink) I brought home this little cutie...

She is the newest member of our family...a female Blue & Tan Australian Terrier puppy...when she is older, she will lose some of her black...and develop a scruffy mane around her face...full grown, she will be slightly larger than our cat...Theo Doorman. We finally decided on her middle name. Thanks to everyone for all of the name suggestions in a previous blog. emoticon



We named her SYDNEY ULUROO. Our last name starts with a V...so her initials are SUV. She is going to be my little Sport Utility Vehicle...as soon as I get her trained to be my little running buddy. emoticon

We named her after the city Sydney and Uluru National Park. We changed the spelling... more like Jillaroo or kangaroo. emoticon





emoticon And my gift to you...not something you can feel or touch or return if you don't like it...it is not a cheesy touristy dust collector or ugly t-shirt... it is more like advice or words of encouragement....TRACK YOUR FOOD AND STAY IN RANGE. Oh, that is the second part of the challenge this week. I am sorry, if you don't like to track. I think it is a necessary evil if you are going to be successful at this. I am a numbers kind of girl, so I don't mind tracking. You must KNOW exactly what you are eating. Think of it as KNOWLEDGE...which will give you POWER to WIN. Knowledge is power.

    It's true - if you want to lose weight, you have to track how much you are consuming. Great pics - it looks like you had a great time in Australia!

    Great pictures and blog!! emoticon Tracking is what I do on a daily basis. Yes, I keep in line then up and down within that line of a little above or below. In other words, I am in the range but love variety!! emoticon

    LOVE the new addition to your family - AND tracking! Your right, it is the ONLY way to know exactly what you are putting in your body and what kind of a result it will have.

    You are perfectly right. I think we have so many telling us there is no need to count anything - they are usually quick fixes. There is lots to be learnt from tracking and counting.
