hey kids! sorry I havent been around lately. Between wrapping things up at work, packing up our apartment, final dress fittings, shopping for countless australian themed gifts, and writing long long 'to do' lists, I havent had much energy to sit down and blog : ) I seem to be doing so much, but I feel like I'm getting no where!

I started to write a post last week, celebrating a year of blogging! and to celebrate, I finally lost 10kg! My home scales say 72kg! which may or may not be accurate, but it used to say 82kg, which may or may not be accurate. So 10 kgs it is! I'm quite proud, even if it did take over 12 months to achieve, but dude, better 10 kg less than 10 kg more!

Oh, and I didnt break up with Mr PT. I only have one more week with him before I leave, so I figure its best I go considering my gym visits have been a tad sporadic lately.

I leave for Turkey next Thursday! I'll be taking my laptop with me, so I'm sure there will be some random posting over the coming months. I have a million things to blog about, but my brain isnt working : (

I may have to break up with Mr PT

yesterday I left work early with a migraine. This is the second migraine I've ever had in my life - the last time I was 15 and it hit me in science class. I thought if I went home and just slept a few hours, I'd be fine and I could go to the gym that night. It didnt work. I woke up at 7 pm, still in pain. I called Mr PT and left a message on his mobile phone canceling our 8 pm session. Late notice, I know!

So at 8:10 pm I had a phone call from him. He was 'politely' abusing me. He was telling me how he is running a business and if I cancel on him at the last minute he cant get someone to replace me and if I had called him earlier it would have been fine, yak yak yak. My head was throbbing. All I wanted to do was scream 'dude! I'm paying you $65 whether you train me or not, so shut up!' but all I could manage was a 'yep, uh huh, sorry'. He hung up, I called my husband and broke into tears. I dont know if it was the migraine, my pms or if he truly upset me that much, but either way, I dont want to see Mr PT any more!

He booked me in for 6 pm next tuesday. Its my last pre-paid session. I will go. But at the end of that session I'll be terminating his services. I'm happy for what he has done for me, but I dont want to deal with that crap.

I havent been the best lately! I've taken on 2 more waitressing shifts, which means I'm working my regular 9 - 5, five days a week, plus thursday, friday and saturday nights. So I've been trying to work out where the gym fits in. Mr PT also expects me to be walking a few mornings every week. (although he is a poo, I will still take his advice!)

My best option
monday - gym
tuesday - walk and gym
wednesday - gym
thursday - walk
friday - gym before work
saturday - walk
sunday - my lazy day!

Thats four gym session and three walks. Today is wednesday, so gym it is tonight! The good thing about waitressing is that I'm burning quite a few calories every shift, but I seem to be eating them afterwards! I'm going to place my dinner order before my shift. I'm going to think of something healthy to eat before I get too hungry/tired/the kitchen has closed and the only thing they will make me is pizza!

typical update : )

I've had a topsy-turvy week.. I missed my PT session due to a mild case of the flu I had picked up whilst nursing The Boy who had picked up a far worse strain. I ate a hamburger for lunch on Wednesday because the girl I sit next to at work convinced me I could eat something naughty because I was sick. I hadnt gone to the gym since last Thursday!

So I went to the gym last night. I still wasnt feeling 100% so I told myself I only had to do 30 mins of cardio - 15 mins on the bike, 15 mins run. I did it, left and went shopping for groceries. I find myself shopping more and more at the fruit and vege shop. I pretty much did my entire week's shopping there. They sell a small selection of groceries - like pasta, great range of dairy, canned beans, tuna, canned tomatos etc. All raw ingredients, nothing too processed. All I need to do now is run into the local mini supermarket and grab laundry/personal items. nice!

I'm feeling a little rush of motivation. I've started keeping a food diary again. I stopped doing that because I havent been counting calories and thought there was no need because I've been following the trainer's eating plan. But I think the food diary is vital. Vital for remembering I had a treat 'off plan' two days ago, so I really shouldnt be having another treat today, if you know what I mean! Also, the food diary should help me keep the weekends under a little more control!
