I ran out of time to post this yesterday;

I can feel every muscle in my upper body moving. I've got some great muscle ouch - not enough ouch to think I over did it.. just enough to know I worked out hard : )

Yesterday was active.. really bloody active! We went to the gym, I ran for about 20 mins, then did weights, then we walked down to check out a free festival not far from our house, then we walked to the stadium to watch the soccer (its growing on me.. I actually stood up out of my seat when something exciting happened.. haha!) We walked for at least 1.5 hours.. and boy can I feel all that activity today! We were talking about going to the gym for pump class tonight.. but I think tonight might be rest night : )

Something a little tragic happened at the gym. I weighed myself. I know my home scales are dodgy k-mart brand.. but oh my gosh.. they are 4 kilos lighter than the gym scales. If the gym scales are right.. I suddenly became obese again.. ha! I've mulled over this scale dilemma for quite some time now, and I simply am not going to care. I'm not going to care about a number. Just as long as whatever the number is, its getting smaller.

Its been over a week since I have had a diet coke. I havent cried, I havent yelled, I havent been a big poo to The Boy. I've been happy and energetic.. and its the week before my periods.. ha! who would have thought! I'm convinced fake sugar is the work of the devil : )

I am very confused about what to drink though. I like the bubbles! And all bubbles have sugar or fake sugar. Except for mineral water... and there is only so much mineral water a girl can drink.

I suck : )

eesh.. this last week and a bit has been crazy! I've been working like a mo fo - one night I finished work at 3:30 am (yes.. AM!), I've been traveling over 4 hours to have final dress fittings for my sisters wedding, I've drunk copious amounts of alcohol at her hen's night, I've been to turkish class, I've been stuck in front of a computer for more hours than I care to remember, and somewhere in all of that I havent been to the gym : ) or even tracked my eating.

oh so naughty! but its a new week and I'm about to finish work and make my way to the gym. So all will be redeemed!

Also, since Friday evening, I have not consumed any diet drinks and will avoid them like the plague. Its all because of this. (yes, I know it sounds a little 'conspiracy theory' but if you do a google search, you'll come across lots more info that backs it up) I've always heard bad things about artificial sweeteners but now I'm convinced. I dont talk about it here, but I've been having crazy mood swings, feeling really down for no reason at all, crying like crazy, lots of headaches, weird heart feelings (maybe I should have gone to the doctor? ha!) And I'm convinced my Diet Coke addiction has something to do with it. So I'm doing as one of the anti-aspartame websites suggested 'Take the 60 day aspartame test. Give up aspartame for 60 days and note the improvements in you health.' So thats it.. no more Diet Coke for 60 days.. and I'm going to see what happens.

So yeah, I'm still 75 kgs (that 74 I saw didnt last long! bastard)

Oh, and The Biggest Loser (Australian version) starts tonight! I'm so excited!! I'm very interested to see how it all works - its on every week night, as compared to the American version that aired once a week.

Stuck at my desk!

Its around 1pm on a Saturday and I'm at work. Ugh! We have a huge pitch early next week and I have to complete the presentation. yay for me!

I've been a very busy bee all week. Wednesday we were meant to go to the gym - but The Boy forgot my pants! I was in the change room when I discovered I was pant-less : ) Its very embarrassing to have to get unchanged again and walk out of the gym without having done a work out : )

So, I've done 2 workouts this week.. and there is a very high chance I wont work out tomorrow - gym opens at 10 am and closes at 6 pm - I have plans during those hours. I'll try do a walk when I get home.

Although the workouts haven't been as frequent as they should be, I have some exciting news! I have weighed myself for the past two days and its said 74 kg! I have really been trying to keep my cal consumption on the lower end of my allowance, and I think thats made all the difference. I've been aiming for around 1300 cals.. so its going good.

Thursday night I started my Turkish language course.. merhaba everyone : ) It was rather freaky.. out of the 20 people in the class, there would have been about 15 Australians girls who were learning Turkish cos their Boy was a Turk! I thought I was going to be the only one : )

I should do some work.. damn pitch!
