Steve and I are going into town today, he's going to show me how to tap into Hotspots with my laptop... not done that before! I want to take my computer up to Auckland with me and use it... but I need to know how to use dem Hotspots!

Apart from that, it should be a normal sorta day: Kids to school, walk Izzy, do some housework. It's the last day of school today, then they have two weeks off, I'm not too fazed by the thought of that ... Stew is taking the first week off and we are off to Auckland for a few days. Don't have any other plans, will just take is as it comes.

I think I desperately need to get back on track with the dieting, I am too scared to get on the scales to see what all my pigging out and lack of exercise has done, but it doesn't feel good! I can tell ... me bra is digging in .... and so are me knickers! Bugger it! Back to the grindstone me thinks, summer is coming!


  1. Yeah, keep in mind that gorgeous summer that you have heading your way and that will hopefully be enough to motivate you and help you get back on track with the healthy eating and exercise routine :-)

    Trust me, I know how hard it is to get back on track once you've been used to the freedom of eating whatever you want. Whenever you want. Still, if *I* can do it. So can you!!!

    Take care lovely...


  2. Those hotspots are GREEEAT!!! Especially the fact that most of them are where they make great coffeee ....mmmmm .... coooofffeeeee!!! .... must got get another cuppa!

  3. Have fun in Auckland.

    I hate when my clothes start getting tighter too. My belly gets big first so it starts pulling my pants up my butt. LOL

  4. lol handsome boys, mua ha ha...

    Summer's coming, you've had your op... Who wants to see Chris in a bikini this summer???? :D

  5. Hotspots??? what are they?

    Yep, kick ya butt into gear, summer is fast approaching...yikes!
    Get back on track today and don't undo anymore of your good work:P

    Have a good day.

  6. Yep, time to get back on the wagon and head across the prarie of healthy living again.

    You'll feel so much better for it.

    May just have found some bunches of dried lavender, shall find out soon.

    Have decided to just go with the white calla lilies and be done with it. Flowers are flowers after all.

  7. Right Chris, sounds like you are going to weigh in on Saturday morning and get your butt back on track! Good girl :)

  8. Have a great time in Auckland :) Man I must be behind the times never heard of hotspotts.....

  9. Yep, tight knickers is also my wake up call I have put on weight!!! Have a good time in Auckland mate!

  10. My eating hasn't been stellar lately either...i need to get in more fruits and veggies. Hope you get back in the swing of things and those knickers loosen up! I need to keep my motivation as the weather is getting colder.

  11. Aww c'mon... if that's not incentive I dunno what is...

    And before you say a damn thing, NO I won't be a part of that lol... though next summer is a whole 'nother animal... :)

  12. Hotspots? You're quite the techno-chick, aren't you!

  13. hi chris, i am sure you will get back on track, but you should wait til after you get back home, what is another few days, you will enjoy it more, and then you can get right into it when you get home. still with you > K

  14. got to love Hotspot, they have saved my life many a time when I have to get a file out quick. I love being able to sit in a cafe and e-mail.

    the weather here in Auckland is just lovely today, the perfect day for a beer in the sun at a nice pub. Although in typical Auckland fashion it is meant to pack up for the weekend.

  15. Beautiful day - love the photos:-)
    I agree with Janene's comment! See you tomorrow.

  16. what a gorgeous day!!!!
    I am jealous...
    I just wish I had some free time to sit uner a tree... boohoo...

  17. I want gorgeous and hot. It's cold here and I'm not ready for FALL. waaaaaaaaaaaah!!

    Great pics!

  18. Good on you for getting hospots worked out.. you can blog almost anywhere now!!

    Just responding to your comment on my blog - I LOVE eating kangaroo... And I can proudly say I have eaten everything on our national coat of arms... so yes to emu too. Kangaroo is so healthy for you - low in fat, high in iron and protein!! Its proably my favourite red meat. I can't stand lamb, and am picky with beef, but kangaroo is always good unless you cook it too long.

    have a good weekend!

  19. Go on Chris...just put one little tootsie on those scales, now the full foot, QUICK! The other foot....OPEN YOUR EYES!!......go on you can do it....there, that wasn't so bad now was it??

    I would like to see you leave the house without your purse AND IF YOU SPOTTED SOMETHING YOU WANTED TO BUY....AND NO PURSE with you......withdrawal symptoms...cold sweats, panick attacks, dizziness, headaches etc etc....teehee....just joking hun.

    We all love shopping and I might go back to Au Natarel yet and take my purse....teehee

    Have a fab day
    Huge hugs to ya x

  20. I must admit, I love your hospice purchases! Don't let your weight get you down Chrissy, you are a gorgeous woman, and you have a wonderful life and family, don't let the scales dictate your happiness. I'm sure you'll get back on track soon. Try to go with the flow a bit. LOVE the earings you bought too!

  21. Stop stressing Mrs Chris!!!!!! I am sure the girls will be very supportive on Sat. morning and you will feel much better. Sorry I can't be there but don't trust the man of the house to do the deck plans etc without me!!! LOL
    Have a great weekend. :)

  22. hmmm.. I always thought a hotspot was something not related to computers... *wink wink* :)

  23. That sounds like a great day!

  24. i don't know about hotspotting either.........???????????

    Have fun in Auckland.

  25. Have no fear of the demon scale. It's ok you're still recovering. I'm sure you will be back on track soon.

    Have a wonderful time in Auckland. Got to love technology, it is so nice to be able to connect anywhere.

    Take care and enjoy your mini vacation.

  26. Ooo, lovely photos...

    Bright, warm sunshine. Lucky you! We've had nothing but rain here :-(

    I hope your weekend will be a good one for you!

  27. Hi mate, I know how hard it is to try and get motivated when you have health issues which dictate what you can and cant do. It's so damn frustrating and it makes you feel so hopeless - the thought of ... am I ever going to be able to exercise properly again runs through your mind and then starts to melt any good resolve we have! Hang in there babe, you've done it more than once before and you will do it again - all in good time. Dont let this get you down, stay positive, these health issues you have now are just a passing thing and soon you will be back to your dedicated committed self and on the beach in your bikini again! :) *smooch*
