7 SLEEPS TILL STEW GOES TO AUCKLAND

I'm starting to freak out! My hubby is moving hundreds of kilometres away from us in just a week! How the hell am I going to cope with that??? I feel sad already.

Today: no shopping, I promise. I have given up on finding anything I really really want or need. Like, I don't need anything!

May go into town and meet up with a couple of friends for morning tea though, just cos I can! Other than that, no plans today...

I might sit down and draw up a weight loss chart to put on my wall, I did that last time and it was a great motivator, watching the line go down.... I work best with visual incentives/reminders. AND I am going to throw out the last of the evil food left in the panty, the kids certainly don't need all those lollies! What else? Oh an exercise plan too.... I need to get disciplined again... follow a set routine, not just a hit and miss one.

Now that my iron levels are coming up there are no more excuses eh? So, lots of positive stuff today.


Well I met Janene and Chris D for morning tea... I'm quiety minding my own business and Janene grabs my phone and takes this photo!!! It's to prove I ate well I suppose? Fruit salad and BLOODY WATER... cos they had no Diet Coke! I wasn't that impressed with having to drink water I can tell you! But, it was a nice morning.

I'm now working on my new weight loss chart...


Right, that's done... there is a little red dot up the top .. that's the start weight.... got 20 kilos to lose this coming year. I will take a photo of this bloody chart every Saturday morning... watch the red dot go down! I need to lose 384 grms a week to achieve this... totally DOABLE people!

I bought something today! Some new bras and knickers. So there! And did you notice, I'm kinda SMILING in that photo, eyes are a bit screwed up cos of the sun though! *snigger*

End of Day: started grumpy, ended happy. So in all, a good day!

NSV: totally on track today, no slip ups at all! Ya hoooooo. nite nite.

  1. Oh! I can imagine you will be sad about Stew moving away but you never know, you could be joining him sooner then you think.
    Try not to think about Stew moving away yet, just enjoy the next week together.

    Hey! It is your gorgeous Stews birthday the same day as mine isn't it? 8th January AND the same day as the gorgeous Elvis Presley.

    Well done for doing weight loss charts, great motivator.

    Enjoy your day hun

    Lots of huge hugs to ya xx

  2. Oh mate, let's just hope you sell the house soon so that you can go join him. I don't envy you at all, it's hard enough to cope with one kid and a small house on your own.
