Oh work how I hate thee


So I finally survived Ed of Financial Year with minimal damage done to my waistline which is a plus :) But I didnt really make much of an improvement either!

Everyone in my local 12WBT group has been signing up for pole dancing lessons which is something I would love to do but I also have no upper body strength either and I finish work at 3pm so the times didnt really suit me either!

But then I realised I could change gyms - which I did today. I signed a 12 month contract (havent mentioned that to my fiance yet as he would be sceptical and annoyed at me) and I am committed to going to the gym atleast 3 times a week. The other 3 days im content to mix it up and work out doing non gym things as Im easily bored and distracted. They have body pole which is a pole based workout that builds the muscles you need. I think once ive done a few months then Ill sign up. I just dont want to waste $170 on something that I wont enjoy

Feeling super committed today - I hope it lasts

Months of Silence Broken

Hi Readers I most likely do not have!

So I have this habit of having great ideas - just no follow through. That is what I wanted to fix life wise over the next 12 weeks. Have more follow through! (I say this and theres a box of veggies in the kitchen that I started to unpack and then got bored and wandered online).

So Im still here trying to loose weight. My scales have not been co operating and are steadily creeping in the wrong direction. Its upsetting as Ill have a good loss and then proceed to have three weeks of gain. Yet today I ran 5kms and my clothes are looser. I think its actually possibly my floor (as I have good tanita scales) so I may need to change where I weigh myself.

I booked in our engagement photoshoot session so that is providing me with some motivation to step up my game exercise wise!

Im sad ill be missing out on my super workout as Ill be off Bridesmaid dress shopping on Saturday! But Ill just do a big work out Sunday - I need to pull out my finger though and work on cleaning my house tonight otherwise nothing will be done on Sunday but cleaning! I wold then have to squeeze in some Zumba and fitness DVD and I always slack off when im training in the lounge - too close to too many places to sit down!!!

So im hoping to do a bit of a cook up/ clean tonight. Hopefully the Broncoes arent playing tonight so my fiancee will stay out of the lounge/kitchen.....

Ive read some amazing books recently so I must do some reviews soon

I really should get back to the groceries!

My aim this week is to post three times so hopefully more soon

Back from holidays

Hey guys :)

So my fiancé and I headed to Tasmania and had a lovely holiday there for the last week. I met his friends and family as well as having a lovely time checking out the sites. Wine glass bay is amazing and well worth the awful hike.

We didn't do well in food and drink intake though so I'm disappointed in myself. I'm on holidays until Thursday though so I am super excited to really get on track. My plans for tomorrow is to clean our house and do a cook up while waiting for the mail. Happy days :)

Then I will head to the doctors about my suspected asthma and then to the gym :)

Should be a good day. I'm waiting on the mail so I can go exchange my phone for a new one as I need the box which is at mum and dads house.

Thunder storms here are awesome and insane. Shall write more soon as it's bed time

Hrmm I see cobwebs

So.....long time no see. I had a horrific sinus infection so I spent the last week eating chocolate and sleeping. No gum, no real food just lots of junk and sleep. So today I was rewarded with gaining 1.3kgs. Ahhh that sucks.

I went to the gym Monday, tuesday and had today off as we needed someone home to get groceries. I did walk for half an hour so that's better than nothing on my rest day. Tomorrow I will either be walking all around taronga zoo or I will headed to the gym and then to shop for new gym shoes and a new dress.

While I gained weight back I have lost 2.5 kgs in 5 weeks which is pretty dismal so I'm hoping to step it up with the gym.I have a power plate class Friday, I'll do some interval machine work Saturday and Sunday and then zumba Monday and beginner pump Tuesday so we shall see how that reflects in next weeks weigh in.

I set my goals this week and the plan is to loose 5kgs a month while doing 12wbt. Let's see how I go. By 12 months I want to fit into my wedding dress :)

So while I am sick exciting things have happened wedding wise

*we picked our stationary. As we dont have a theme (just a colour scheme) we picked these really pretty garden themed ones that really suit our venue.
* My flower girls baskets arrived and they are so amazingly pretty
*We paid off my wedding ring
*My tiara arrived and its so unbelievably amazing
*Mum picked up my dress
*I found a decorator
*Booked my appointment with the venue to make some final decisions on the room and secure the booking
*I put a deposit down on the cake
*I bought my bridesmaids jewlery.

So seeming I am not getting married until September 14th its a little overly organised but meh.

Sickness IS Terrible

Hey Everyone

I feel bad that I havent been on here in awhile. My fiance and I went house hunting on the weekend which took all day; so I didnt make it to the gym but I did walk 6km from house to house so we decieded that counts as exercise (often had to jog to the next inspection too) and then on Sunday I went to the gym for an hour and a half and burned 967 calories.

Then on Monday my sniffles had turned into pain. Tuesday I didnt go to work and saw a doctor who told me I have a severe sinus infection. I went to work yesterday but was dead on my feet by 3pm and Im back home in bed today.

Pre season Task 2 came out for 12wbt and I was really honest with myself about what is an excuse. I mean I cant help being sick and I need to recover from it - but I can also give myself the time to do it quickly. I shouldnt compromise my health for my job so today I am resting in bed. Normally I would go to work and instead be sick for weeks rather than days; then use the fact I feel unwell not to train. In the long run one full day of rest is better then several half days of pushing myself to just stand upright and meaning I dont move my arse for 8 or 9 days.

Do I feel guilty being at home? yeah I do because I know how busy work is and I feel somewhat like I should be there. I am a bit of a control freak so I like being in the thick of it. I have to learn to take a step back and rely on my team (I am acting Team Leader at work currently)

Ive booked in holidays for the next few months as sometimes I'm sick because I am burning out. I need to make sure I take some time off and relax

I might post up my excuses shortly

Hope everyone is well

House cleaning ahoy

So while I may not have worked out this morning I did manage to clean my house from top to bottom and do three loads of washing. I am pretty pleased with myself as the plan is to meet my fiancee for a house inspection and then head off to the gym.

This means I can actually do SSS which is usually derailed by the fact that washing needs to be done and my house needs to be cleaned!

I got the latest womens health and it has some really fun work out plans that I am going to try in the weeks leading up to kick off when Michelle doesnt give us any workouts. I find myself a bit aimless at the gym sometimes and unsure of what to do in the slightest.

Wish I had worn my heart rate monitor and could have seen how many calories cleaning a house burns!!!

My best friend and god daughter are coming over very shortly to look at and discuss wedding plans so I shall head off and bask in the enjoyment that is a clean house :):)
