Steak was good. Moon beautiful. Meditation was good

Was going on a hike above Kalk Bay tonight for full moon rising and sunset but my gym friend cancelled cos of possible injuries coming down in the moonlight :(
I'd be prepared to go ahead but I don't know any of the other people going - so instead I'm going to the Spur (have buy one, get one free vouchers again!) and then to a Full Moon meditation evening with the gym friend. I'll try many things once - but not tattoos or piercings!

Student change over tomorrow - out goes Swiss Miss, in comes Swiss male, same age - that restricts my weekend a bit but it's part of how I earn my living

Have a great weekend

Walk neighbourhood hilly roads - trying out new shoes - fine but as I got further into it, the heat built up, the sox started slipping and my baby toes got a bit pinched - anyway completed what I set out to do

6.53 kms - only about 3kms to go to knock off a marathon distance - hit the treadmill tomorrow before class and that'll do it

Going to have a quiet day - some by the pool, some with the remote, some on the phone

bit late getting here today - oops

- Walk neighbourhood - 60minutes 3.71 miles
- Go for brunch with friend/gym instructor to a tourist attraction on the mountain - views!
- Dance lesson - check-test with the boss - all OK and can proceed with next level :D
- Supermarket - student dining out again so I can relax with fruit and dairy (keep the spaghetti sauce I've made for tomorrow night - whenever! It's profitable when they go out!)

Did end up walking 4kms on Tuesday

Thoroughly enjoyed the Dance class - not really Zumba but a pretty good substitute - lots of fun and laughter, buckets of sweat and slept incredibly well

Wednesday 9

Slept for an extra hour and decided not to rush to Aqua (been going for 10 years!!)
BodyWorx class - and have an extra 1/2 hour Latin Dance lesson this afternoon - Styling - to get ready for next exams

BodyWorx - the increased weights are not so bad any more - just certain moves that give trouble at the end of the last sets :D

I heard today that our gym does have a Zumba class - but by a different name (apparently it is registered/franchised so fees have to be paid if the name is used) - will definitely check it out if I have the stamina tomorrow evening

would have been my 38th anniversary of wedding to 1st Late Husband - also a scorching hot day in 1972

Aqua Aerobics - absolutely dead today - heat, extra dancing (all the Boere dances and lang-arm stuff :D ) Feet sore, hips and hams very tired

Walk to rugby stadium with big brother this afternoon

Rest - and maybe use the pool - it was 23degrees at 7.30 this morning :)

Walk - neighbourhood 5.23 kms hills
Dance lesson - 60 minutes - hot steamy day - drenched with sweat by the time I got there
Walked with new tenant to find the Jammie Shuttle busstop behind Planet - another 1.39kms

that's enough for one day!

New tenant seems OK - PhD student at UCT - hope that means she's not a party animal!

going to PNP for fruit & veg - don't use Food Lovers as I have to drive further and don't get the Vitality discounts - always end up buying too much which has to be thrown away :(
dance practice required - also bit of gardening - with the walking to PNP and shopping that all adds up to another 60mins of exercise.
Don't know why Spark keeps giving me 250 mins when I log 180 or 120!! Makes me look like an Amazon - and I'm not!!

Sorry that you can't log on to SP and I will send my daily report-backs to your email - but will also check in here for accountability!

BodyWorx class - oooh boy, again couldn't get my light weights so buckets of sweat around my step - reckon I'll stick with the weights now though as it was much easier today than last week when I had to double-up. At least now I am working up in sensible increments

Sunday 23 Just been for neighbourhood hilly walk listening to U2 and Chris de Bergh rocking away. Had cleaned the pool and redone the chemicals - when I got back the pool had turned green - blehhhhhh!

Saturday 22 update

We went to Col Cacchio for that gorgeous Brioso salad - loads of butternut chips etc and chunks of chicken as an option plus a glass of house white plonk :)

My knee was so relieved not to go dancing tho apparently it was a bad decision as there were fewer women than usual, former instructor was there, so would have had more dancing and fun than lately :(

Hi there - good to see you and that you are sorting out all the losses :( Well done with the lunch situation. Mine at Vergelegen was smoked salmon salad, no dressing, and a creme brulee on berries - and ended up well within calorie range, even with glass and a half of their white wine. Lovely!

Aqua today with BFF who returns to the UK on Sunday, then we did BodyWorx together - decided not to go dancing tonight as one of my knees is protesting lots now - wasn't aware of injuring it - just couldn't kneel on it for stretches.

Stunning day again!

Hello :)

Been trying to log on to Spark for the past week, my new computer has blocked access, but it seems to be working this morning.

Havent done much gym this week, did go for a jog with the VOB running club yesterday, that got the sweat pouring.

Finally sorting out all that was lost, and trying to get back on track.

Work has started with a bang - I was on training in CPT from Mon-Wed and I was so proud of myself - they buy lunch for us, Mon was Debonaires, Tues was KFC & Wed was steers - and all three days I brought my own lunch - and i stay disciplined - :D

Vergelegen was glorious yesterday - the Camphor trees were manificent - the wine is good - the food was great and the company excellent! Giggle muscles exercised too - cant believe she and I met over 50years ago in 1959 when we started High School together!!!

Thursday 20

Tried for a 4mile walk today - have to add another loop - it was only 3.903 :(

Dance lesson this afternoon

No cooking all weekend - student heading off to Kruger on Safari - back Sunday some time

BodyWorx - usual instructor back from leave - she also needs to work her butt off so she worked us super-hard today - as ever, ST intervals and cardio combo for an hour. Going to feel it tomorrow - also couldnt get my usual weights so had to go up a level - all the NYResolution people turning up - rock on Easter!!

Porters - down the Blue Route to Ladies Mile exit, go towards Mtns, then into Spaanschemacht River Road, keep on going past Constantia Uitzicht, turn into The Range on the righthandside and then pay the nice man R5 to go into the Tokai Plantation a couple hundred metres. Park in the shade if you can and walk for a couple of minutes - market is on the right and only on Saturdays.

The fee goes to Chrysalis Academy and the Police.

Sunday:

Just finished packing all my stuff in car and dropping off back at my house - so lots of lifting and carrying - sweated off at least a kilo in the car :)

Sorted out new id, drivers, bank cards.
got some new stationery - unexpected expenses - as if Jan isnt long as it is.

Porters market sounds like a cool place to go on a sat morning - where is it?
You have to teach me more about gluten, wheat and sugar free foods, I think thats where a lot of my sneaky calories come in.

Forgot to log yesterday that I did another short walk - instead of going there and back to the Sans Souci recycle bins, I went round the block and that meant I walked a total of 3.36 kms :)

Just in from walk down Main Road to Rondebosch Bridge past the Croquet club and back over Campground Bridge etc - total of 5.94kms :( was trying to round it up to 6kms! will have to add a loop somewhere

Went down to the Porters fresh produce market with 2 friends - probably wandered around for about 2.4 kms (1.5miles) carrying heavy bags of fresh produce - better value for good tasty stuff than PNP/Checkers etc

Good breakfast of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon - I didnt have the roll so it was on a bed of Basil and bought a big basketful of goodies. They had bread made from chickpea flour and muffins too - didn't dare buy any or I'd be stuffed!! I know it's available and when I really need to have some I can go down there to get it - but not going to kid myself I can freeze it - cos I know I'd polish off the lot. It's all gluten, wheat, sugar, dairy, free - sweetened with dates or other fruit - yummy!!

OMG - I am soooooo sorry - that is such an invasion - car damage, losing our most personal effects - all that expense and the inconvenience!! Grrrr - was that at KC or MontClare?? I am appalled. I do hope you manage to get all the replacements without too much difficulty.
-----------

No gym classes to suit today - decided to go for a Kirstenbosch walk with a gym pal - met at the Old Entrance and walked up towards Skeleton Gorge but she's not very athletic and others in the party hadn't turned up but were texting all morning :(

Spent close to 3 hours in the sun and shade - but taking it easy, and having breaks (for her) - reckon we walked/hiked for about 2 hours. Nothing strenuous - going to plot the distance somehow for my virtual marathon in January challenge - with a piece of string and the Kirstenbosh map I reckon it was only about 3.25kms but much of it was uphill (does that count for double :)???) - told you it was slow :(

Dance lesson this afternoon - Yay!!! Really missed it :)

when you feel like that - if you want to chat and vent a bit - or have a little cry - give me a call. Looks like I won't be able to get over to you for coffee one evening cos student is unreliable in getting home in time for dinner :( We WILL manage it one of these days though - e.g. you come over to me - in fact once you get back to your own place, maybe it'd be a good idea for you to come and have supper at my place ?

Yesterday's BodyWorx didn't happen - they didnt get a replacement instructor so the class was cancelled - just as well I did the walk. Then spent hours talking to computer techies and trying to fix my laptop. It's much better today but obviously I am going to have to replace it - just not in a screaming hurry - and will be able to set it up while this one limps thru its day and then I can pension it off or keep it for emergencies

I mean it - if you need to talk (and prefer that it's not to someone emotionally involved) call me

Ooooh - have you noticed the Team Stream that runs now while we are on message boards?

Neighbourhood walk - 3kms - 33mins - not a race but paused to check out Spur's loyalty program and the lads clearing recycle bins at San Souci

Went to Cav with my SA friend who lives in UK and then spent all day trying to sort computer difficulties - backed up - 9hours to copy pix and very little data :) Keeps crashing out of internet, losing screensavers. When will there be a Special at Inc.Connexion??

BodyWorx later this morning

Two short-term emergency students left on Saturday - drama queens - new guy arrived for a month. Seems OK - Mech.Engg student and his little sister is here too staying nearby.

Can't wait for dance lessons to start again on Thursday :)

Awesome relaxing weekend.
Hope things are chilly out on your side with students & flat.

Sat - woke up early, but slightly hung over - one to many cocktails (I only had 2) - LOL -
Had a friend around for the day, we had a very nice lunch - awesome home made bread from Knead in Muiz with smoked chicken, pineapple & mayo. The creativeness came from a lack of ingrediants in my kitchen.
Then we had a late afternoon swim.

Sun - studying the whole day from 10am till 4pm -
then went to canal and watched a movie & went for dinner at cattle baron.

All in all a pretty good weekend. Feeling tired today, and not in the mood to play happy with my juniors - its one of those days I'd like to quietly get on with my work and have no interruptions.

My short-term emergency student bookings have gone - my scheduled 4-week lad has arrived - so will probably walk +/- 4 kms showing him around to Cav, Station, School etc - nothing strenuous about that. May add the 1-7 videos again (or not!) There's an email about a Bonus Accelerator Video - hmm we shall see

Not so hot today - maybe giving people a chance to let their sunburn recover ;)

Saturday 8

Caught up on the 28day Boot camp Challege today - did all 7 days but skipped the stretch sections at the end of each one - left stretch until the end

Since we both go to gym and various classes, I found it very short for each segment and only about 8 bicep curls. Hello??? We do full range, half range to waist height, half range from waist to shoulder, diagonals, overhand grip, underhand, hammer until we start begging for mercy, and then come back to them later!! So - altho I did it, I don't think it's anything praiseworthy - just better than doing nothing and OK as an additional workout

Going to have a dip once I get off here - no swimming - just cool off :)

Going to take the Brazilian new student (2nights only) on a round trip to Cav, find a cheap cellphone (PEP), and to the school to pick up dox for Volunteer Project she is here to assist - got basic phone and SIM for R79! Talk about throw away phones

We walked for 4.4kms as we had to include the station etc

Probably hit the pool again later this afternoon :) (At home that is! Had a v.late night skinny-dip last night to try and cool off before bed-time - sheeeeuw it was a hot one)

Did hit the pool a couple of times :)

Neighbourhood walk just after 7a.m. to miss the traffic and a bit of the heat. My pool got up to 25C yesterday so it was pleasant when I got back from the Sir Lowry Village

Former language student (Swiss) is coming to visit me today and then a new one (Brazilian) is arriving this afternoon

Shoooo-eeeey! 38 degrees today - probably more up the Helderberg on top at Wedderwill Estate - stunning up there - view of Sir Lowrys Pass and down to Vergelegen Wine Estate. Enjoyed the visit with old school friend again - lots of catching up

Pleasant drives out and back - keep forgetting how beautiful it is but it is always a sentimental journey for me as DH2 was S.West man for much of his life and his family's business is still there

i took a few photos of the cupboards - i should have taken before photos as well, but i didnt think

You mst stop by my place in Rbosch for an evening cuppa, ur student can come as well if they want.
Its No 10 Garton Road (off Sandown), im there most evenings after 7pm.

Back at work is hectic, its like i stepped into a snow storm, but im loving the pace, i would well under pressure.

How much is rental at your flat? Im always looking to move out of my cupboard I call home. :)

I went to gym class yesterday - body conditioning - the lady almost killed me, we had no air-con.

Working out here in swest with no air-con as well, at least that encourages me to drink way more than the required 2litres of water - LOL

I had a very relaxed NY's day, just had a braai with my sister & her husband and went to bed early, relaxed the whole weekend preparing for this week.

Tuesday 4th

Aqua Aerobics with my SA friend visiting from the UK
Gardening - just a little bit

Hoping to hear from a Zim friend of my 2009 tenant who is interested in the flat - if all OK I'd like her to have it and then not have to go thru the sweat of advertising interview credit checking etc

Hot out there today!

Monday 3rd

Went for a 30minute neighbourhood walk this morning, then slogged in the garden for a while plus a bit of dance practice - that totalled an hour

Then to BodyWorx at gym for another hour. My SA friend who is visiting from the UK met me at VandE in Cav for coffee and came back to the house for a while

International phone call - few emails re letting my flat as tenant is def.quitting end of Jan :( after only occupying it for about 3weeks out of 7months - brilliant tenant :) cooking curry for the student and trying to get google directions to the other UK friend in Sir Lowrys Pass on Wednesday. A Swiss student who was here for 5months in 2009 is coming round on Thursday and another new student is arriving that day too - it'll be pandemonium here this week

How was your first day back at work - how did your tenant like the kitchen?

Sunday 2nd

Well I did manage a one hour walk yesterday - the sun came out the puddles dried and it was so peaceful while everyone slept off their hangovers :) I covered just over 6.5kms of the Newlands hilly roads so I was happy

A new student arrived, took him on a walk to the ATM at the Engen Serv.Stn, got airtime and schlepped him over the bridge to show him the school. Then he offloaded the first load of laundry (he's been at the YMCA in Obs for 2 weeks!!) and took off with friends to see the sunset at Camps Bay. OK - day 1 - profit - no meals :)

Today I have pushed a broom, pulled a rake, bent and picked up leaves for over 1/2 hour - that rates as exercise (judging by the sweat it's a good calorie burner!) Hoping it'll clear up enough to go for a 1/2 walk and then show the student Cav etc and those minutes count too. He's been at the City school so doesn't know this area yet - only going to be with me for a week and try to find a flat/houseshare till beginning of March. A bit ambitious I think but never mind

Good luck with your daily trips to S.West - I'm meeting my 'old' school friend out there on Wednesday for lunch - may also drop in to say hi to my in-laws - Late DH2 was from the West.

Here we are - another New Year - and why on earth is it raining like this? Hours and hours and hours of it - and Thunder too - not funny

So - since my old trainers have a hole in them and the new ones gave me blisters yesterday, I'm not going to get soaked and walk around the neighbourhood - gym is closed :( but I think I'll set up my DVDs and do some dancing around the house

Slept better last night - decided I am worth the new bedding that I was saving for special occasions - it was great to have that 5star hotel feeling in my own room. Think maybe 2011 will be a good one for creating a beautiful peaceful haven for myself - it'll be about time!

Friday 31 December

After a very restless night - very little sleep and don't know why - I went to gym and did 7kms on the treadmill, 800metres incline and burned off 740 calories, then some mucking around on other equipment and wandered home.

Got additional bookings for language student hosting - getting emergency short-stay people for odd days here and there but that cuts short my me-time holiday by a week. Of course, the bucks in the bank are appreciated and it's back to cooking proper food again :(

Hope you have a good NYE and a very happy healthy 2011

Hugs - we really must try to get together for a coffee or something

Thursday 30th

I was invited to Virgin KC as a guest and did the Zumba class - my first ever - and oh, what a blast!! Once I got over being self-conscious about being a Newbie, I got into it and couldn't care less if I made mistakes. It was fun, I got soaked and I want to go again :))

The get-together with old school friend and her new man went well - lunch was great even tho we had to eat indoors :( That nasty old S.Easter cloud made it too shady outside and the wind got up too - would've blown the lettuce leaves everywhere

Hope the flat is finished well and that the tenant is going to be happy

What are you doing to NYE? I'm playing it low-key as usual and staying close to home - may wander over to a neighbour if invited - or get a buddy to come round

Hmmm, lunch sounds devine!!!
I havent had bfast yet, so im starving.
Hopefully last day at flat today, i've moved beyond frustrated and just taking it all in my stride now.
back up to 66kgs, but im not to worried, i havent been gyming in ages, and have eaten whatever crawls past me most days, long working days at flat have lead to bad eating habits.
Back at work from Monday, doesnt seem like a holiday at all. Off to a client in SWest.

Aqua Aerobics followed by BodyWorx - good sessions

Reunion with old school friend was good - glad that I cleaned thoroughly - her new man is a UK hotelier and probably has an eye for this sort of this - my DD2 is also Hotel School trained and is hyper-visual -will see more of them. It was fun and my meal was good - huge salad full of surprises, and smoked salmon and Black Forest Ham and good cheeses as well as South African wines

Aqua Aerobics - lots of use of water resistance

hard work cleaning the house - scrubbing bathrooms and shifting furniture to vacuum - getting UK visitors tomorrow - she went to High School with me 1959-1964 and we met up again last year for the first time! She's bringing her new man to lunch and hope we can see more of each other in the next few weeks

Rather than go to the gym I went for a 70minute walk around the neighbourhood, fiddled about in the garden and did a few dance steps as well as a plod around Cav taking back the gifts Energy Buddy and family did not collect before heading out of Cape Town permanently.

Monday 27th

Back to gym - dance steps for 1/2 an hour waiting for instructors to arrive - then BodyWorx. Thank goodness it was the relief instructor rather than our usual - she would have killed me! Far better to ease back into it - still broke a serious sweat but didn't upchuck :)


Grrrrr that kitchen and the situation with the flat must be stressing you out big time. Did your housesitting actually happen? did they get away after all??

26th Dec

So glad u had a relaxing christmas. My day was extremily relaxed and unfortunetly got so into my book and the pool, didnt put enough sun-block on and suffered a slight bit of heatstroke and sunburn. Feeling better today.

Was running from Wed-Fri on those cupboards, the wood was delievered on Wed at 1630, so not much done wed and when we started working on Thurs, found that pieces were missing and edging was done incorrectly.

Due to the frustration all gym & food disapline flew straight out the window, I ate when i could, mostly fatty take out -
Trying to get back on wagon today though.

My mom came over yesterday, and i am teaching her the art of healthy eating, and that we can survive without sauces and unnessary fatty foods, good experience.

Going to be taking some days rest, back at work on the 3rd, and due to my over indulgent sun activities, not feeling much like being in the pool and lying in the sun, rather dissapointed at my silliness to not put more sunblock on and be careless.

:)
hugs

Happy Christmas Day - Saturday 25

I intended going for a neighbourhood walk this morning but changed my mind - it's far too quiet out there and may not be entirely safe :(

So - feet up, waiting for the grandkids and DD1 + SIL for my lift to SIL's sister for lunch

Going to turn today into my rest day - other than possible wallowing in the pool, dancing around if there's music other than Boney bleep bleep M and enjoying food prepared by others :))

Hope you have a good one!

Back to the gym tomorrow
Hugs
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Again no classes at gym so I intended giving myself an Aqua class and for anyone who turned up - I was alone so I swam for 300 mtrs and then gave myself an awesome class :)

Last night's nutrition ended up well but by the time I got home all willpower had vanished and I devoured an entire box of Belgian Praline chox - hmmm it must have been the wine that did it!! - So this morning I packed up the other box I received (Ferrero Rocher - full of gluten unfortunately) and will give them to my Xmas lunch hostess - recycling again

hope you manage to avoid all the roadblocks out there and have a safe happy Christmas :)

No gym classes and Garden Services so neighbourhood walk - 90minutes up and down the hilly roads of Newlands - 9.048 kms or 5.62 miles of pain and sweat :)

Heading to a friend for drinks/snax tonight - will be taking my own so I can control what I eat :) to a certain extent. People get freaked out by gluten intolerance but when they see what I bring along they start to understand

Wednesday 22

Last night's hike and rock scramble up to the Tunnel Cave above Sun Valley was incredible - when the Solstice Sun set its rays shone directly into the cave which is a type of quartz crystal - this phenomenon occurs at Solstice and (I think ) Equinox too.

It was a breathtaking experience and, whether or not one is a spiritual being, it seemed to have wonderful effects on the group. The feeling of peace and awe was well worth the effort - I might even have enjoyed the hiking part!! Maybe I'd do some again - maybe ...

Today was Aqua and then BodyWorx - I must admit I was a little less exuberant than usual - after all I was up later last night, I had hiked and scrambled and used muscles and balance that don't usually get a workout and it was hot at the gym

I'm going to have a look at that theory of being the average of our 5 closest friends ... hmmmm

Give me a call - if I am available, you can wallow in and around my pool if you like :)

Thats not very nice, im sure she meant to come, but i understand how u feel.
Monday night had a sort of going away party/get-together - just 3 friends from work and me, 1 of the girls was retrenched this year and we are going to miss her dearly.
She is flying home on Thurs and although we have made promises to keep in touch, its never quite the same. She gave us all a small gift, mine was a keyring with a quote "friends are the family we choose for ourselves" - such a true saying.

Andrew sent me an article today, which was also very true, we are the average of our closest 5 friends. and if i sit and think about the closest 5 ppl to me, this is very true.
The article went on to say that we also mimic the ppl around around us, and although this is common sense - smokers tend to hang around other smokers, I've never really thought about in a lifestyle kind of way, and if I think of my sister & mother - my sister smokes, and absolutely hates exercise, most of my friends dont eat healthy and rarely exercise, but i run a running friend, who stays in muiz - but our schedules unfortunetly clash very often.
I'm hoping to inspire those friends around me - be the change and steer them towards a healthier lifestyle, it is rather difficult to stay on track when those around you de-motivate you.

Anyway, enough rambling.

Another gorgeous evening. House sit still not happening, the clients are flying to london and the snow is putting a serious dent in my holiday by their pool plans ;)

The flat is still on hold, no wood yet, I have shrugged my shoulder at the tenant, not sure what more I can do.

Summer Solstice combined with Full Moon and Northern Hemisphere Lunar Eclipse

Aqua Aerobics - today I had to wear wrist and ankle weights and since I did a second class yesterday it's been a tough one

Yesterday evening I decided to go to Beginners Step and so had another 1/2hour of weights and Abs - needing additional classes to make up for the seasonal cancellations and no dancing

Going for a hike tonight - to see the Sunset and Moon rise etc - give more details tomorrow after the event cos not entirely sure whether I should admit that I am going to this!!

Real Life Energy Buddy left Cape Town without coming round to fetch her Xmas parcels and saying goodbye - I know it would have been a very emotional time but it's a bit of a smack in the face :(

Sounds awesome, I wanted to take a walk somewhere this morning, but no one was available and i didnt feel like going alone.
hs sit is postponed for the moment, flight was cancelled, cause of the snow in europe, holding thumbs they leave tomorrow.
Bought a new pair of sunglasses, R160 at BondiBlu in access park.
Spent the day sitting on the stairs outside, reading a book and eating cheese & herb muffins from woolies.
Hoping Andrew & i do something this evening, I love being at home, but 2days in a row is overkill - hahahaaha

Went to Muizenberg with real life Energy Buddy and her two kids. Walked along the catwalk to Dalebrook past StJames and back - spent a couple of hours on the beach - overcast and misty but very warm and sun came out - lovely time but very sad as she is relocating to Pretoria - packing up the house tomorrow and pulling out of Cape Town on Tuesday :( She has been working up there for couple of months and only down here for odd weekends.

Going to spend time in the garden - pulling up weeds and soaking up sunshine - hope the pool might be warm enough for more than a paddle

I would be spitting mad! So your tenants are moving in on Christmas Day?? Wow

My tenant is turning up today - first time in 5.5months - the rent has been paid and the lease has been extended to end Jan :)) Best tenant ever - so quiet - you'd never know he was there - well, he hasn't been. Not my problem !

got an unexpected invitation last night to share prawns and salad with friend/neighbour - I had suggested we use our buy-one-get-one-free (BOGOF) vouchers at the Spur so we might have bumped into you again :)
Anyway the meal was great had to pull the prawns out of the pasta and eat with the salad but the company, the food and the wine were good - I think I have had the best parts of Xmas already - friendships and meals in the peace of the garden.

Aqua today - good class

Enjoy the sunshine - hope the sunglasses don't break the bank :)

Sat

As predicted - deadline was missed -
The leadtime on wood is going to be 4-5days, so move in date has been moved to next week sat, the tenants had to move their possessions in as the storage was only till the 17th.
Oh well, fun & games and keeps life interesting.

Went to spur yesterday, had a burger & salad, i'm so used to eating the chips and onion rings and then feeling sick for the rest of the day, it was amazing, I ate, felt full, but not stuffed, and was able to continue my day without feeling ill. I may never eat the chips & onion rings again.

Thinking of taking a walk to access park - near KC centre, I need to buy some new sunglasses, mine snapped in half yesterday, with no provoking on my part - i swear. :)

A beautiful day today, moving into house sit tomorrow, which means i have space, a kitchen, a lounge & a pool, cant wait - :)

Either you have great faith in Andrew or you have wonderful patience :) I'd be tearing my hair out!

Aqua class - had to skip the BodyWorx today as student is leaving (just like on Monday) and discovered today that this instructor is off next week so I'll have to make up some kind of program for myself :(

Had a pleasant afternoon yesterday - dance friend came and we sat in the garden eating smoked salmon salad with lots of chilled wine - very pleasant!

I love it when I am just eating for me. You can be in complete control of all you eat.

Finished painting flat yesterday, Andrew hasnt started building the cupboards yet, or bought the material, well, that ball is in his court, he is well aware of the deadline tomorrow.

Went shopping with a friend yesterday and bought a very pretty dress for R99, had a spicy beef wrap for lunch.

I mst def do some exercise, getting back to gym soon. :)

Hmm - I thought i wrote on Wednesday - oh well SP must've lost it - cos I know I mentioned going to pensioners double points day at Dischem and had a cholesterol and glucose test - both perfect :)

Aqua and Bodyworx yesterday and supermarket shopping - changing food things again because I'll not have a student for 3 weeks so I can eat totally clean and mostly raw for a while - that'll help get thru the holiday over-indulgences, I hope

Thursday
4mile neighbourhood walk up and down the hilly roads of Newlands in overcast weather so no sun-tanning today - even so, it's better than being in Joburg/Pretoria with the storms and floods they are having

Got a dance school friend coming round this afternoon to split a bottle of Rose and a couple of bowls of nuts and olives - pleasant way to spend a Public Holiday - wish it was sunny tho!


Ah-ha - how strange - the gremlins are at it again with SP - the Wednesday post popped up after I had written this - I'm not going crazy after all :)
