Us and our best friends at their sons 30th birthday.

Love this pic…even an alright one of me considering the extra weight I am carrying. It was taken up at Geraldton at the surprise party we went to, Thomas  was really surprised, he had no idea the party had been organised….everyone kept the secret, his wife Leah who he is cuddling did a awesome job in organising it along with Thomas's sister Jemma who is with Leah in front.  Other than the band being too loud in the small venue we were in it was a top night. 

This saying I saw on the weight watchers site on Monday…and  it made me realise that I really need to do something instead of talking about it, talking about it is not working!!!! Then I saw a special deal that ww had going, so I raided my savings and clicked on the promotion and paid 3 months in advance, printed out the receipt then that evening I took myself off to a meeting. I have made a promise to myself that I am NOT going to waste my money, I am going to do this. I WILL attend every meeting and stay for the meetings. My leader is new, she went solo for the first time on Monday, I really liked her…her talk was quite inspiring. So for the first time in a long time I am feeling inspired.

Our wee William….I love this little man. And this weekend I get to have more cuddles. Kylee is coming down to pick up her furniture. Her and Garry are moving out of Garry's mums house….things are not too good there….and have rented their own place. 
Don't blame them actually, we weren't impressed with the cleaniness of the house when we moved them up there! Its going to make things very tight money wise but they'll get there. Kylee thinks its quite funny that she is actually an owner of her own house and yet has to rent!!

Our Easter Bunny William
Had a fantastic Easter weekend up in Geraldton with our friends. We went up for their sons surprise 30th birthday on the Saturday night.
Kylee and Garry called in on their way down to Perth to pick up the twins and asked if we would like William for the night…..ohhh yes we did!!!  
Such a happy little man…a delight to have.

Ate too much chocolate, drank too much wine….but now back on track, I hope...

A better week...

ahhhh what a relief…I had a better week. 
 I kept on telling myself…"eat what you have planned", and if you're hungry eat fruit!! And thats what I did. Even tried out a few different recipes…and much to my delight they went down a treat…even hubby enjoyed. It, I admit,  hasn't been easy, I have been on and off track, more off than on for too long now that I have made it hard on myself.  I am encouraged to keep at to now, jumped on the scales this morning and it showed me a loss.
So one week down and done and dusted.

And to finish…here's William. He turns 15 weeks this week. Not long now and I get to have a cuddle…come Easter we are heading up to Geraldton to friends for a surprise birthday party…and Kylee and Garry are heading down to Perth to pick up the twins for the school holidays…they will using Geraldton as a stop and cuppa break both ways…CAN NOT WAIT...

Another week wasted...

This week has gone just so damn fast, the weekend even faster….and what have I done…just wasted it.
Beginning of the week I had got myself together, was following a program and felt good about myself and my efforts.
Come Thursday…visitors arrived for the big speedway weekend…and I was prepared, Thursday night dinner organised, as were meals for Friday. Saturday was rained out…so my mood turned the same and the pattern was set for a blow out.
Now I am disgusted with myself and my lack of restraint..I have plied myself with treats throughout  the day and consoled myself as only I can by eating junk. 
I now try to prepare myself with menu's for tomorrow and getting myself back on the wagon. 
Boy am I finding this hard, but if I want to make myself healthier and fitter I need too…its 11.5 months to our cruise.
I AM NOT A QUITTER…I can do this, just get to get through that first week and stay totally on track….and then I might remember how good that feeling is again. Keep on going like I am the weight is only get higher and its going to be harder and harder to get off.
Our friend Trev who was racing this weekend. He and another good  friend travelled down for the weekend and hubby and I were pit crew keeping him and the car on the track. 

Some of the cars that were racing…showing this one as the car in 4th position was crowned WA #1…he was rocket on the track and kept us enthralled with his neat, clean and fast driving….the car was a rocket on wheels….his crew had it singing!!!

And can't leave without the latest collage of our little William.
