I am going to have a great day, I am going to be positive and not grumpy.... I am going to track every morsel that passes my lips and even PLAN my meals. No more letting the stress get to me and letting evil little snacks get in my face, or overeating.

TODAY: Kids to school, walk the dog then do some jobs in town.

Food: I WILL have breakfast, I will NOT have anything evil in town and I will have at least one shake today. I want to end the day with a positive feeling in my heart, not hating myself!

OVEREAT = Feel like crap

STAY ON TRACK = Feel fantastic

WHAT DO I WANT???? Derrrr, it's really no contest eh?

When Stew is home he is the one who loads and turns on the dishwasher.... the few times I've done it he's come along later and 'huffed and puffed' and rearranged everything.. like I don't put it in 'THE RIGHT WAY' !
Well I just got my first thrill of the day... I loaded the darn thing and I turned it on! OK, it took me a little while to figure out how to make the bloody thing go, but I did it. Small things eh?

Celebrity Slim shake: Strawberry... is bloody YUK for breakfast! That's all I have to say on that subject!

ANOTHER victory for me today! I just cancelled my gym membership and did not have to pay the $250 cancellation fee.... as we are moving to an area that does not have my gym AND cos I have not been able to go much due to ill health. YIPEE! How neat is that?

I will of course be finding a new gym to attend once we are settled in Auckland. Just have to get there is all!

Stew is home early from Wellington, so ... we are going to Bulls for lunch... just love those kebabs!!!! Hey, it's only 30 minutes to Bulls!

End of Day, and it has been lovely! Stew and I spent a good 3 hours together (just the two of us)... so nice. Just finished feeding the family dinner... going to watch some mindless TV, do a bit of tidying up etc.

NSV: Saved myself $250 on cancellation fee... not bad. nite nite.


  1. GO GIRL!!....YEEHAA

    Enjoy your day yun xx

  2. OOps I meant hun not yun....LOL


  3. I almost choked when you said Stew rearranges the dishwasher. Now I'm 100% sure we are living in a parallel university. My DH has to do the very same thing every night when he get home. Sometimes I just want to smack him. But gotta love him for wanting the dishes to be super clean.

    Please try not to stress too much, it won't make a single thing better. Everything is going to workout just wait and see. Relax take a breath.

    Have a great day.

  4. Right I have time to post better now after vaccuuming the stairs.

    It is great that you are feeling more positive today.....FAB! I said above...go girl!!

    I know what you mean about the dishwasher, my OH doesn't load it right so I have to re-do it when he does load it but he is such a baby...he loves putting the tablet in and setting the dial and....wait for it......

    SWITCHING IT ON.....awwwwee what a babba buntin as I call him....*snigger*

    Hugs to you hun xx

  5. Awww, I hope that you've had a good day, Chris, and that you have managed to achieve all your personal goals for today!

    Well done on mastering the dishwasher, LOL.

    We have yet to try our new dishwasher yet!



  6. Mark wants to get a dishwasher... I cant see the point.. he does a gr8 job by hand... hahahahah
    On of the fatty poomba's at the weighbridge turns her slim shake powder shit stuff into blamonges (spelling shit) and has them like that..says much better than shakes...
    she adds some cornflour or something.. and sets them in the fridge... feels naughty but it isnt type thing...
    will try and find out more about it..
    I couldnt do shakes..I gotta eat...

  7. Ditch the shakes already woman - eat healthy food instead!

    I have yummy pancakes for breakfast #1 everyday and then a All-Bran baked bar and peanut butter for breakfast #2 at 11am.

    Doesn't seem to be doing me any harm and I'm only eating about 1200 calories a day.

    Life is to short to eat crappy food !

    Have a fantastic day

  9. Don't worry Chris - I'm just chomping at the bit to get at some retail therapy! BUT I'm a prisoner in my own home as I don't have a car and am not meant to be driving just yet either. Stu has promised to take me shopping this weekend... wahoo!!

    I dont even know how to turn my dish washer on, let alone pack it, so I am with you on that one!

    And a husband who insists on loading it! LOL.

  16. Sounds like you enjoyed your date. Good for you getting a refund. Hope your home finds a new owner this weekend. All the best.

  17. Getting any company to forgive a cancellation fee is a minor miracle! Congrats!
