Ready for the Weekend.........

What will the result be in the morning I wondered to myself today???

I know I will get the result that I deserve based on my effort for the last week!- but I really would like a loss!

I have not been able to excercise this week due to the stromy weather in NZ.

My eating has not been the best!

So what will be will be!

This weekend sees me taking the kids to there cousins birthday party at Chipmunks - I will make sure I take some healthy snacks for me as I know that my will power can be low at those places. - I will follow it up with some yummy subway for lunch!

The evening sees me and a few friends heading off to Finale in Auckland City for a night of entertainment.
It is another Drag Queen Show!
Love it!

I now need to decide am I drinking or not???
I guess the main question to ask myself is what do I want more- a loss next week or a hangover on Sunday!

I think I know the answer to that!

Have a great weekend - I am going to try and work out what is wrong with my posting on the home computer this weekend - fingers crossed I can get it going!

Ten on Tuesday...........

1. My sons end of soccer get together on Saturday went really well - the boys enjoyed themselves and the coach loved the album I made for him!

2. My clothes shopping on Friday with my BFF went really well - I managed to purchased three long dresses for Wellington at Labour weekend and the one for the ball only cost me $29.00 - Gotta love the Chinese Shops!

3. Now to try out the dresses at dance class to make sure I can dance in them!

4. My daughter has just experienced her first heart break! - Poor wee thing - the boy she liked asked her arch enemy out and she was gutted! - So glad I am not 13!

5. Check out  our routine that we did in Hamilton the week before Champs - here is the link - the intro is a bit long where we all walk in but the actual routine starts at about 1.36 and I pop up at different times - the first is around the 2.00 mark- eek!

6. I am definetly going to try this treat!

7. Weigh in this week saw a loss of .200 - I need to refocus if I am going to make my next goal!

8.Our 80's themed dance party on Saturday night was great - altho I didn't end up getting decked out in 80's gear!

9. This Spring weather is bringing me down - the rain is terrible and the last couple of days have brought storm warnings to NZ

10.Oh nearly forgot - took my car in for an oil and filter change as the mechanic had a special of 69.90 - I ended up diving off after paying 386.00 - apparently I had an oil leak and leaking cylinders in the rear brakes! - ARGH!!!!

Mid Week Sneaky Peek!

This mornings sneaky peek saw me down .600 so heading in the right direction!

Another couple of days of great food choices and lots of water, sprinkled with excercise and I should be able to report a nice loss - that is if I can sort my home computer out!

I took my car to the mechanics this morning for a oil and filter change on a special deal of $69.90 - I think walked a quick 15 minute walk to work - to receive a call about an hour later advising me of a few oil leaks and brake fluid leaking in the back wheels - now the bill is just under $400.00 - EEK!!!

And there goes my shopping money for Friday!!!!!!!

Annoyed is a nice way to put it!

So whats a girl to do - well I am going to look thru my house and see what I can sell on Trade Me and hopefully I can recover some of the $400.00.

Altho I am not sure exactly what I have left in the house to sell - might need to really look thru the closets

Oh well life goes on!

WOW - Really...............

Weigh in this week saw my biggest gain yet!

1.5kg! - EEK

Two things have majorly contributed to this:

1. TTOTM started within hours of my morning weigh in!
2. The rice crackers consumed the night before - when will I learn that those little suckers retain water with me like nobodys business

So what does this mean???

Well It means I am sorting my shite out this week - lots of water, lots of healthy yummy food choices and walking to work!

Which I did today! - felt good to be back walking !

On a side note - I can't seem to post from home at the moment when I create a post only the title shows up
Any suggestions to what I have done???

What a Week!...............

This week has been unbelievably busy and tiring for me!

Oh and not the best food choices either - why is that?? - I get tired and busy and all good intentions go out the door!

I have not walked all week, I have only just begun drinking my water yesterday and again last night I ate way to much cheese!

So starting tomorrow (no I won't binge today!) I am back on track!

I WANT to be under 100kg asap!

I WANT to met my goal of loosing another 6 kgs by the end of October and I am only going to do this by following the programme!

I KNOW I can do this!!!

Weekend Update

Well I did try and update you all yesterday but for some reason the words below the heading were not showing???

So quickly!

Weigh in on Saturday saw a fantastic loss of 1.8kg!!!

Woo hoo!!!!

Going under 100 is so close!

Champs was also on Saturday and it was amazing watching all the great dancers and being in amongst them all I find it quite inspiring and makes me want to get a whole lot more serious about my dancing!

Long may that feeling last!

We didn't place in the teams event but thats ok - we had fun!

Will try and post some photos later - if I can get posts to work at home!

An interesting Way to spend an Evening................

We all decided to meet at an establishment for a light dinner before tackling the motorway last night, my initial journey to the  establishment pub was eventful due to me taking a few wrong roads which lead to a traffic jam!
We managed to get out of it quickly and met up with everyone - I enjoyed a small chicken wrap from Nandos (next door to the pub) as I was not prepared to spend up to $20.00 for my meal and the only low point option was not available (Small non scale victory for me!)

We headed off and I was very surprised that the motorway was a smooth run through.

We arrived at our spray tanning place for 7pm, a brief run down of what will happen and we began.

There was 9 of us in total so we got sprayed in car lots, so we weren't all having to hangi around to the end.

My friends convinced me to go the whole hog and get me bum and boobs sprayed and I thought - what the hell - when am I ever going to have a brown bum!

So after the initial shock of standing in a paper G string in front of a lady (whilst trying to suck it in a bit!) it was ok.

I will post some before and after photos of my legs that I have taken and will try and get some others taken as well.

My overall thoughts - it was ok - we don't look like oompa loompas (Deb) and one thing I will remember for next time (Yes there will be another time) is that with my chubby knees there is a slight overhang when standing so now when I sit there are some white marks! so I need to bend a bit and get sprayed

Oh and my curvaceous body doesn't look as bad tanned!!!!

Spray Tan Day

Yup todays the day I get my first spray tan and can you believe I forgot my camera :(

I am so annoyed with myself - I was packing my bag with all my cotton dark clothes and forgot to put in the camera.

I am hoping some one else will bring one!

Sneak Peak this morning saw me down .700 so fingers crossed I can maintain this and loose a bit more on Saturdays weigh in!
