Hope you achieved all you wanted yesterday.

Me - just plodding along. No progress in any direction. Way too tired from work and just looking forward to my break.

Good morning, everyone, Today is a nice cool day for me to do some tasks I had been putting off during the hot weather. I manged to sleep for eight and a half hours last night, it wasn't brilliant sleep as the cpap machine was too uncomfortable to wear , it was cutting into my nose for some reason, and it was so sore that i took it off after about an hour.

Gee the seasons must be changing. I am actually sleeping in a lot these days. This is a good thing as sleep has been an elusive friend of late.

Sun is shining and there is no rain - we shall see how long that lasts for.

Good morning all and there is no rain falling but it is still overcast. The sun is struggling to send some rays down through the heavy clouds.

Hugs everyone. I am just flying through this morning as I slept in and need to get a couple of things done before work.

Hi Ruthy !!
Glad that Alan got back to Victoria safe and sound !
Sounds like your car has a lot of life in it yet !.
Hi Kayelene.
Hope it cools down over there soon or you will all be baked to a crisp!
it is raining on and off in Mildura today and very cloudy although really humid it is a great relief from the heat!!
Hi Georgia!.
Hope you find some mojo soon my friend ..
Your working hours are quite long and must be hard on the feet .

I remember when I was head girl in the fashion wear department of David Jones in Sydney... just how hard it was to stay on your feet 9 hours a day! and I was only in my thirties then. LOL!!

I'm willing to share the WA sunshine. Its been so hot that my modem has been overheating and I've had to switch it off and let it cool down and reset. I have air-conditioning in my house too!

Thankfully, its much cooler today. I could do with a good nights sleep.

Al has had avery safe journey back to Vic in my old car.
He tells me it went like a dream and so cheap on fuel.
He has decided to keep it as we would not get the money it is worth if we sold. We will use it in Vic.
He tells me we have a tropical jungle for a garden the first time he has ever seen it so lush and green for summer. But not good for my pumkin plants they are not doing well at all. Boo Hoo

Pick him up on Sat at the airport

We have rain predicted for Adelaide this afternoon and I am looking forward to it because I want the temperature to cool down. My axolotl doesnt like any temperature above 22 and it has been 31 degrees minimum at night in my abode.

thanks for the positive comments about the allergy injections, I sure am looking forward to breathing better,

Everything is off balance at the moment. Exercise, food and motivation. My brain must be waterlogged LOL!!

Georgia, I am glad the rain has stopped for you too. I have been watering my pot plants nearly every day to keep them going in the heat here in South Australia.

I have a big week coming up next week as I start my Allergy injections for dust mite, which I will be having every week at the specialists for the next four months. It means a whole morning out of my week every Friday. I will have to organise myself as I have to sit at the dr's rooms for 45 mins after each in injection to make sure that I don'f have a bad reaction. I need to get into the habit of actually waking up in time to catch the bus to the appointment too, it will be a full on day.

My sleep apnea was playing up yesterday and the machine I use doesn't seem to be working as well as it should, the end result is that I slept on and off for most of yesterday, I put up with the noise from the machine for about six hours last night and hope to be more energetic today.

I have lots of cleaning and indoor tasks to do today, paperwork etc that needs to be sorted out.which is good because it is going to be hot outside again today, The last three days have been 37 degrees and it is going to be 35 today.

The rains have not stopped for 2 whole days and the flood levels have gone up all over the place. Some places are already cut off again. Feel for those people in those areas that had it bad last year. They must be fretting terribly.

Not exercising and am struggling with food. But still persevering to a degree.

I had a really busy weekend and a busy day yesterday. DH and I have been doing an extensive spring clean of our house and garden. We can actually walk in the sheds now and my outdoor seating area is wonderful. My treadmill has been moved and I can see the TV now, before it was stuck in a corner and I looked at the wall. emoticon

Hi I didn't wake up till 7.30 this am after going to bed just after 11.00pm this is a reasonable length of sleep for me, given my sleep apnea, I still have to get used to the cpap machine working better than it is. I plan on ringing the company this week and taking it to them to check it out.

Today I need to continue cleaning and also go to the shops and do some shopping. Tonight I will walk at sunset

Hi Rozie I am in Brisbane too.

Susie I think working full time has a lot to do with not much time to fit in extra exercise.
An average day begins about 515 and my walk for about 50 mins. Then to log onto sparks for about 30 mins then off to work and not home till 6pm. Once dinner is sorted and some washing etc I don't feel like any more exercise.

I do lots of lifting and moving things at work so i guess it is light exercise.

Have a good weekend everyone.

The sun is shining and time to get ready to take mum shopping and then off to visit MIL.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

I count all my weak herbal teas as water because even though I do drink water during the day it would not amount to 8 glasses.

It is hot here too and I have to go really early in the morning if I want to walk.

After a stressful week with stocktake and no internet etc I am just sitting here today catching up. No walk for me today as my sciatica has decided to play up. If it is not one thing it is another.

The weather is hot and humid - to be expected after so much rain we had this week.

So much movement at work so feel as though I have gotten in some exercise.

I did my walk this morning and despite sleeping a lot have managed to get some cleaning done around the house. ( still lots to do though). Living in a one bedroom flat I need to keep organised to avoid feeling like I am living in a mess, Unfortunately this doesnt usually happen, Well unto now, the times they are a changing.

I am just about to go and do pilates for 45 minutes. With lots of things I have no problem - like eating 5 serves of fruit/veggies a day, doing outdoor activities (if it is dry) or sleeping 8 hours, however, my really big challenge is to not overeat on sweets.
I am going to only have 70% Lindt chocolate in the house !
Have a great day everyone!

Yesterday I did most of my dishes, and still have more to do today, I also have the floor to mop and benches to wipe down.

But first I will go for a walk. I have my shoes on ready and will go after the 7.00 am news.

Later today I will venture to my University to meet the Law Librarian and learn how to use the resources at the uni again as it has been a long time since I studied.

Rain has kept me from walking and I have had a bit of a lazy week in regards to exercise. Today is stocktake at work and after that I can get back into a routine again as the work pressures will be down.



Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

I have set myself the challenge of doing some heavy cleaning around the house this morning, before the hot weather becomes to unbearable
I am about to have a coffee and then do some dishes and maybe mop the floor.

Susie I won't be posting the video butt I can keep it on my computer and use it as a threat every now and then to get his blood pressure up. LOL!! It was an experience though.

Marcus you have made the first step by joing us here and talking about your committment. At least the bike is fixed now and yes I agree exercising in great heat is not a good thing but you could use the SP exercises and do them indoors. You could do 10 minutes at a time and allow yourself time to coold down between each set.

We have gone back to the cooler weather and rain again. No complaints as we need the rain.
Getting ready for stocktake today and tomorrow and then I can get back into routine.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Hello Everyone I have decided to try and rationalise how i spend my time on SP and the computer in general as such I have decided to take part in this sticky subject occassionaly just to keep up with what everyone is up to and improve my feeling of community because at the moment i feel like i let myself down too much. I seem to be good at planing to do things and not so good on the follow through.

like on the weekend I was going to fix and ride my bike, I didnt get passed fixing it - as i wasnt well and it was hot- well that was what i told myself at the time. I will have to walk early today to avoid the main heat of the day too as it is going to be 39 yesterday it was 37 and I am still awake at 2.30 am because it is still over 28 degrees in my abode.
I really don't cope well with the heat and my flat is not good with staying cool either.

The drive was nice but the destination was cold and miserable and rainy. Did get a chance at one stage to video DH and what a hoot as I am not the good with the camera yet and he was telling me to stop as he was embarrassed at being the star.

When we got home he said to me - How could you? I look terrible and I said It is a test run I will delete it one day!! heheheh and then maybe not.

This morning it is raining steadily and finally my garden is getting some much needed water.

My ex's house is nearly finished only a couple of small things to shift now. He was a smoker and lived in the house for nearly 14 years so you could imagine the state of the house. So now it is my house that is a shamble, with my things and now his. I will have to sort out what to do with all his things in the next few days. The funeral is Monday so I will have time after that.

Wendy I did the housework before work yesterday and the a full day at work and i am so tired this week from not getting in enough walks. So much to be achieved and not enough hours. I think I will have to reassess my days and not fit so much into them.

Drove to Port Macquarie and back to put klms on the new car for its first service.
Still don't like Port as a shopping centre.
We had lunch at the Bowling Club, stayed within my food range lots of coldslaw with meat and other veges. Followed by fruit and 2 small scoops of icecream.

nice and cool here at the moment but heating up on the weekend. yuk. Gee I have been so busy lately dealing with my ex-hubby's death. Hasn't been easy. Yesterday we spent about 4 hours cleaning, shifting furniture, washing curtains and windows. Still running around trying to organise all the stuff. It is for my son as he is the only child of my ex.

G'day team!

I hope everyone is making a good start to 2012 and we're all powering on towards our goals.

I've just come back to SP, back to using the trackers everyday, it worked for me before so I know it will work for me again. I'm looking forward to getting back to pre-holiday fitness!

Take care,

Ti
