This week...

I am going to put 100% effort into having a healthier week. Even though I lost 100g this week I ate too much again, going over my allotted pro points every day…and my exercise was just what I did at work. I can and will do better. My excuse was all the extra hours I have been doing, yes it has made me tired, yes it has made my feet sore…but this week my hours are less and I have time to plan my menu a little more and add some extra exercise…a walk down to the estuary maybe, or even a walking dvd :-)

Its 6 months to our cruise and I so want to be at goal….won't get there if I keep on playing at losing weight. I know I have to live and enjoy a few "added extra's" occasionally but not every day. So its onwards to the next weigh in…and hopefully another loss.  Nearly 7 kilo's down now…

Had the best weekend…..

I had the best weekend. Had my niece drop around her little boy, then Garry's ex dropped around his twins so Garry and Kylee got to spend more time with them and have some one on one time with their baby brother.  
The kids all had a ball together and of course I got lots of time with William.
All I can say is roll on September when Kylee, Garry and William travel down again. 

Weigh in, 200 grams gone this week…and I must admit I am happy with that as it was a very hit and miss week as far as food and exercise went.

Counting down to the weekend…...

 All the days are running into one another, its been shift after shift and I am tired. Tomorrow is a day off but I have housework to do, a specialist (gynaecologist) to go see, bills to pay for the mother in law…and fit in a visit to see her in hospital. She has been put in again for the ulcer on her leg. Its not healing, actually it has spread and mum is in so much pain and she in to see if we can get that sorted.  Its been test after test for her and we are getting nowhere with the system as it is. Mum is 89, lives on her own, but this ulcer has stopped her mobility so looking after herself has become hard. Unfortunately none of us daughters in laws can look after her full-time…so we are going to have organise full-time home care or respite when she gets the pain control sorted out for her.
I have a ton of housework to catch up on as well, poor house has been very neglected. My bathroom is a disgrace, dusting needs doing….and the list goes on. Hubby has been great, he keeps the kitchen clean, does the vacuuming and even some of the washing when needed.  I have visitors coming this weekend. I am babysitting my niece's little boy and girl on Saturday night, and that night I also have Kylee, Garry and William due down for a few nights as Garry as a visit to a specialist too. Garry has Guillain-Barre Syndrome and needs for treatment.
So looking forward to cuddling my wee little man, and spending time with my girl. A whole weekend home sounds wonderful.

Weigh in day today….very happy to report at long last a loss…700grams gone.  My leader has asked me to change my goal weight. Goal weight is 68 which I got to last time I got to goal 10 years ago, but she feels at my age I don't need to that thin, after chatting we have decided on a goal of 75. As she said I can always go down more from there and see where I am happy at. Even when I got to goal last time I sat around the 71 to 74k mark so I am happy with that. So I also have to see my GP next week to get a letter from him if my gyneo won't do it. Though thats not the reason I am seeing him for…a ongoing bladder problem needs to be sorted.  

These drinks have been my saviour, I have cut back on quick fix snacks, including chocolate…and these drinks for 1pp have helped. Made with water they are still very creamy and chocolately.  Anyways roll on next week…and hopefully another loss.

Girls sleepover

I cut my finger Jenna…..that grass was sharp.  
 ohhh really Jenna, that is sooooo not funny!!
 Just reflecting….watching their images in the water….and hoping a lot that they see a dolphin, unfortunately there were none.

I had these two on Friday and Saturday night, the Miss Skye and Miss Jaydene .
I had been promising them a sleepover for ages and I finally had two nights in a row free to have them. They had the best time, as did I with them. These pics were taken on walk along the old pipe jetty from a factory over the road….they love this walk as do I. 
And to finish off, here is Master William, rusk, dribbles and all.

ooops before I go…a stay the same on those demon scales.
