Me again

Im sort of back on track. You'll have to excuse any typing mistakes. Im wireless now so I can watch the rugby and sit in front of the TV and type.

Am back at Weight Watchers again and in the first week back lost a whopping 2.3kg but last week only managed 100g although I followed the plan again. The only explanation I can think of is that my body has gone into shock and is now squirrelling away any food that comes its way. Well I have news for it - its gonna have to give it up sooner or later.

Am exercising nearly everyday - either a gym session, a class, swimming or walking with Lucy. Even if it is only 30 minutes we do it everyday. Actually ran a little bit yesterday but it was a bit hard trying to run and dragging a very reluctant 8kg dog with me. She actually sat down at one stage and refused to move.

Am going to only go to pilates once every two weeks now as the class is being shared by two teachers and while I like both of them one takes our class straight after she has finished teaching a pump class and I think she is actually deviating away from pilates and more into balance and just plain exercising. Anyway, so I've decided to switch between pilates and body balance. Am also going back to tai chi next term.

DH has just come back from a 3 day golfing holiday with mates to the Sunshine Coast. Apparently he is planning another one in September to the Murray - 7 days 7 golf courses. I wondered why he was collecting allthose brochurs when we were down at

DD and I went to see "Music and Lyrics" or is it the other way around. Hugh Grant may be old (look who's talking) but he is still gorgeous and I enjoyed it in a very relaxed sort of way. It was a great brain drain.

One of my sisters has found out that she has an enlarged liver with lots of fat around it. Have googled it and it sounds very worrying. She cant get in to see the gastro guy until June but she is talking about modifying her diet and giving up alcohol now so that is good.

That's about it for the moment. Am still having problems at work, I cant remember whether I have mentioned anything but I am feeling very undervalued and looking forward to the Easter holidays.

Rugby not going well - DH is getting more and more upset. He wouldnt come with me a couple of weeks ago he is so disillusioned with the Waratahs. DS had to come with me which was a nice mother and son outing. But I doubt whether he will come with me again. I'll probably be the last Waratah fan at Aussie stadium and I promise to turn out the lights.


  1. It's great to hear that you're back on track and seem to have your spark back.

    I wonder if any other people are skipping every second pilates class too? The two sound very different.

    I've been to a couple of the Tah's games this year with the boy's work (I think there have only been two??) and it's certainly not convincing me to like the game. Not that I am too worried, given that I am under strict orders to be a Brumbies fan. I remember when I was about 10 or 11 Dad said to me that if I must go out with a footballer, to make it a rugby player because at least they have degrees hehe. I'll be going to the game tomorrow week, give me a buzz if you want to meet for a drink.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Oh it's so lovely to see you back. Well done on these losses - almost two and a half kilos in two weeks is really good going. Sorry work is still not good - you spend so much time there it makes life pretty miserable if you're not very happy.
    Here's to another good week

  3. Great you are back. You are going well with the daily exercise, really does make you feel better.

    We've just about given up on the Canes in the rugby - maybe next year:(

  4. Lovely to see you back and rearing to go... the losses and the exercise are fantastic. Keep it up.

  5. Glad you're back on track - it can be a real struggle sometimes & I'm struggling at the moment too, but I have learnt that you just need to hang in there.. You're doing lots of excercise..well done!
