Daily Note

Today i seemed to have more energy than i have been, wonder what had caused me to be so tired in the past week, will see with my blood tests, not sure when they come, it may take 3 weeks, which will just be a week before i go home. Hopefully it comes sooner.

I played soccer today, lol, i have no idea how long ago it was that i played it, there were some young children playing outside the clinic, Anja and I joined in, aswell as David, who is another employee that works there, he is one of the doctors at the hospital. He is quiet handsome, 32 and divorced. Has no children. He too is from England, but has been living here in South Africa for 6 years. He is quiet a charm lol, He is great with kids, maybe i could say i have a small crush on him but i won't let it develop into anything, as i know his plans to stay here for another few years as my home is in England despite how much i enjoy it abroad working. Besides i go home in a month, i don't think i could handle a long distance relationship with having such a short term companionship and i may not return so even if he did have same feelings back i shouldn't start on it. I can just wonder for time being. Lol.

I also danced some, wow can the ladies move their hips, they shake and shake it like there is no tomorrow, all sizes and shapes, and they don't need no Shakira here lol. Their hips do not lie lol. The young ones are really fanatic about their dancing too. They do dance alot better than some of the dance crews out there.

I spoke with Adrian and Krystle on chat. It always nice to have communications like that for people far away. I be glad to see them again. I miss them so much. As well as my parents, They are thinking of having an April or May wedding, which would be nice weather at time in York. They are thinking it in 2014, so a whole year and a bit to plan for it and i get to be a bridesmaid, woohoo, what a thrill. Her maid of honor is her sister Valencia, And the other 2 bridesmaid is her half sister Sadie and her cousin Cheryl, so i am thrilled i get to be one of the bridesmaid too. I guess its because Krystle is already part of the family and we are pretty close too since she has been with my brother for 20 years or so. Krystle has no brothers though. Just Valencia and Sadie. Krystle is the eldest just like my brother. They are truly a perfect couple in my meaning. And i am so great that i get to share this wonderful experience with them.

Mother can not wait to be a grandmother, lol she is expecting one soon after they get married, i don't blame her as Andy is already 30 years old and i am 25. And she approaching 60 i can see her point lol. And all her friends are grandmothers whilst she is still on the waiting list lol, i see how her friends are very proud of their grandchildren and my mother just wants that feeling too. I guess she is afraid of dying young as her mother was not that old when she died. I believe she was only 62. I was a approaching teen when she died.

I guess tomorrow for USA it is thanksgiving day, Happy Thanksgiving day to you then, I have always celebrated it on a set date each year on the 25th, but being away from family and a different country i will not be celebrating it. But i have wished my family a happy thanksgiving and i gave them a list of my thankfulness in case dad wants to read a part from me so it feels like i am there with them.

I notice days i have more energy i seem to write more in my blog lol. I guess that is a good things as i always have something to say lol.

November Goals

9 days left and November 2012 will be gone. And begin the last days of the last month for the year, scary thought, who swallowed the year up, 2010 didn't seem to go as fast as this year went or did it but just forgotten? lol. I am top of things with my goals. Two more days i can write a week blog about how i have been going with my goals. As well as weigh in day. So we shall see, i am hoping for some loss on the scale, since last week was no loss on scale but i did manage to loose 8cm / 3 inches. Mainly from my waist.

Sparkpeople Plan

Yep yep yep! Still focused on my plans and why wouldn't i be, i am not giving up yet lol. I will continue this until the day i die lol. Since even when i am goal weight i will still be focused on toning myself and maybe loosing a few more, since the goal weight i picked is on the higher end of my healthy BMI so i will see on that goal weight what i want to do with my body then, although that is still a few years away, but i will get there!


Motivational Song

Africa by Toto

With alot of singing and dancing in the evening, i thought this would be a great song that people know off would go with the theme. It is an awesome song about Africa.

Motivational Quote

“Don’t wait for someone to take you under their wing. Find a good wing and climb up underneath it.” ~Frank C. Bucaro

This is a great quote especially for those who struggle with support, i have crept under many wings of people here on sparkpeople and they have been welcoming too lol. I love my spark friends that i have here, so motivating they can be, and when i have a down day they give me a kick and shove and pull my face (well not literally but it feels like it lol) to make me smile and get back on track again, i love it. Thank you for all your support sparkpeople!

    I'm glad to hear you had more energy today and feeling better. I hope you get the results from your blood tests sooner than 3 weeks.

    Dr. David sounds quite handsome! It's a shame that he is going to staying there in Africa and you will going back to England. You can still flirt though! emoticon Nothing wrong with that. emoticon

    At least you have a whole year to lose weight before your brother's wedding. It sounds like you really like her.

    It sounds like you are doing well all the way around though.

    Take care and Happy Thanksgiving!

    20 yrs?! Long engagement emoticon . And you get to be bridesmaid-how exciting!

    I guess you are feeling a bit better to have a crush on a doctor. That's every mothers' dream emoticon

    I have NO doubt you WILL reach your goal weight. You're very motivated and 'up', if that makes any sense. You've got the drive & willpower to succeed(I even nominated you for 'motivational member').

    Have a GREAT day tomorrow. It's Thanksgiving Day for us and Amber & I plan on getting to the park for some 'mother-daughter' playtime.
