Strange week

It has been a strange week. Have finally decided that I am not going to obsess too much about my weight and just try to eat well. Still following WW when I can but have had a couple of days when I have gotten the munchies around late afternoon but strangely it hasn't bothered me and even registered another small loss.

Have completed Week 1 of C25K. Had to do one of the sessions at gym on treadmill because of the weather but my running guru has assured me that it is okay and I agree Zanna, it is probably better for my knees although it still doesnt really feel like running unless I am outside. My heart rate goes through the ceiling but that could be a good thing????

DD's new car is gorgeous and IKEA was fun. She also took me out to lunch which was nice.

Parramatta Girls with Catherine and Sarah was wonderful. I really really enjoyed it. The seats were great, the actual show was incredible -laughing one minute crying the next and of course the company was wonderful.

The rugby was interesting. DH left me there at half time as he couldnt watch it anymore. Silly bugger missed the best part of the game. Luckily we were with other friends who made sure I got home safely. I was cross but I got over it.

The ballet was lovely too. My first time. Really enjoyed it. Looking forward to going again.

Work has been incredibly busy. I am doing my job and just working the hours I have to. After last terms revelations I am not going to put myself out again.

Have just heard that a friend has ovarian cancer - quite extensive. Has been operated on and they will find out more today. The news knocked me a bit. DD is definitely going to have the vaccination when it becomes available for her age group.

A friends son was savagely beaten over Easter by a group of 13-14 year olds 5 minutes away from where I live. I have always believed that my suburb was fairly safe so this has brought me up short and am now a bit hesitant about walking home from the station at night alone.

Have terminated (does that sound better than fired) my cleaner. It was a hard thing to do but I had to do it. Thank goodness I am not a person who has to hire and fire people. I dont think I could do it.

Highlights for this week:
Dinner on Saturday night at a favourite Italian restaurant at Glebe with friends
Week 2 C25K (my mind is telling me to do Week 1 again but onwards and upwards)
Rugby (last home game)
Will start swimming again this Sunday


  1. You are doing well. Terrible news about your friend and your friend's son. Hang in there. Polly

  2. I love that you list your high lights for the week - I think it is so good to remember the good things because too often we tend to get bogged down with the negatives.

    So sorry to hear about your friend and your friend's son - it's such a shame that the world isn't the safe place that we would like it to be.

    I hope you have a great weekend - take care and look after yourself !

  3. Sounds as though you have had a bit of a upsy downsy week...hope this one is better. Keep thinking posistive...

    Have a good weekend...

  4. I'm tempted to try the c25k after reading that so many bloggers are doing it...
    I hope your friends son is recovering and that they catch the little sh*ts that beat him.. Before I moved up to the Central Coast I lived in Lane Cove and I used to go out walking around 9pm. One night I had a real scare when two hoods crossed the road and came straight for me.. I thought I was going to be knifed.. Well I took off and ran for my life.. Luckily I was close to home, but I never went out walking again after dark! Scary stuff!!
    Anyway hope you're week is going well..

  5. Sounds like things have been glad and sad for you. Counting points would have been the last thing on your mind! Good that you managed a loss anyway.
    Sorry to hear about your friends' problems. Not nice at all!
