I’m dead.

No really.

This is my ghost writing this for you to read.

It all started with that Gym Bunny thing you see?

And I was going along really well this week. Increased all my weights for the different weight machines, doing 30 minutes of cardio and then Lizzie got hold of me. Asked me how my back was going. Told me she thought I was ready for and needed some more ab/pelvis stabilising work.

So she showed me two more exercises using fitness balls and free weights to add to my routine, then she got me on the mats and showed me some fancy stretches and then she got me back on the ball and showed me some other exercises.

And now I’m dead.

She killed me.

Now I’m just waiting to be resurrected.

To come home from the gym and eat a bar of chocolate? lol

Today I nearly fell asleep on the mat, after my workout, while I was stretching.

I didn’t think that was a good sign.

So I gave myself a sugar boost. šŸ™‚

Thanks again go to Lightening for hosting Smiley Saturday

Smiley moments for this week, hmmmmm…………

* getting one up on my kids definitely makes me smile šŸ™‚

* managing to get to aquatherapy this week to start easing my way back into exercising after my op makes me smile.

* TJ’s determination to mow the lawn On.His.Own. the other day was chuckle worthy. (no, I made him wait for his father)

* directing the kids to make streams and lakes to divert water around our garden this morning was quite fun. We were digging channels around the newly cleared garden bed this morning to divert water around the stumps of the trees hubby cut down to soften the earth to make them easier to dig up. It took the kids a little while to get the gist of how deep to make the channels to send water flowing in all different directions and how to stop it all pooling at one end. Was quite a fun little experiment. (We were using our tank water on it.)


A Reflective New Year? December 31, 2007

Well, I’ve been reading ya’lls blogs (ok not all of you but some of you) with reflections from the year and resolutions for the year to come and it got me thinking what my own would be.

I guess my resolutions for next yearĀ are to NOT

  • get arrested
  • move house
  • be sick for a good whack of the year
  • put back on all the weight I’d lost over the previous 18 monthsĀ 
  • have a hysterectomy
  • have more legal battles with the freak over Miss Lou
  • set my kitchen alight or
  • hit a kangaroo with my car

cos I did all that this year. So. Next year. I’m thinking……………

Financially I’d like to – Ā 

  • reduce our debt by at least $250 a month
  • start voluntary super contributions
  • purchase a new lounge suite
  • purchase a new (used) car
  • purchase a full size piano
  • purchase new mattresses for the kids beds
  • learn to stick to a budget & reduce our household running expenses
  • to be able to pay all sporting/music/excursion fees etc upfront this year.

For our family I’d like to –

  • be more consistent with household routines
  • have a couple of camping weekends away through the year
  • have a weeks family holiday at theĀ coastĀ later in the year
  • haveĀ more regular family times
  • host friends and family more often

For myself I’d like to

  • be moreĀ consistent with my routinesĀ 
  • develop better sleep habits
  • exercise regularly
  • continue to develop better eating habits
  • lose 15 kg’s
  • get the problems with my sinuses sorted
  • get back into crafting group and prayer group regularly
  • get my MR licence so I can drive the fire truck

We’ll see how it goes. Some of those will be fairly easy (like setting up a payment contribution for the super), some will be quite hard and I am not a very disciplined person. I’m seriously hoping with the hysterectomy sorting a few of my health problems that my energy will soon increase again and with it my motivation.

Edit:- I must also go visit some of my internets (especially Kelley)

Wish me luck! šŸ™‚

hmmmm we got up to 32 degree’s today. What the hell happened to spring? Did we “spring” over it straight into summer? AGAIN? Oh well at least the pool is open now so I’ll be able to get into some kind of exercise routine again.

Mostly I think due to my recent bout of anaemia leaving me with the sleeping habits of a new born infant, I have put back on 7 of the 10 kilos lost last summer. So starting weight 117 kg. Goal by Christmas to be back at 110kg. Then we’ll set a new goal. I was really hoping to be down to the hundred mark by the end of this summer. Guess we’ll see how we go.

I’d better start taking my meds again tomorrow. That might help.
