Ahhh what a hunk! Hope you have a wonderful day... at work.


Stew is dropping the teens off at the outlet shops again... saves me taking them in and then having to turn around and come home again.

Me? Dunno! Relax maybe. Work on me diet plan.... tis going great so far. Now I don't have to eat breakfast anymore I can get back to my 'normal'.... which is no breakfast, a good sized healthy lunch and a small dinner. It works for me.

I should no doubt get our clothes etc sorted for tomorrow too... make sure we all have everything we need for the wedding. I am really looking forward to it... remember.. I'm the FLOWER GIRL! *smiles*

What did I give Stew? A bloody tie! No home appliance... so there. I couldn't find a darn thing for him that I knew he'd really want/need so I just found a really lovely tie... he LOVES ties!

I just took the first step to being accountable with my weight again... I made a doctor's appointment for next Tuesday... I am going to discuss my weight with him and set up a regular weekly weigh in there... it will cost LESS than going to Weight Watchers, I will have a one on one consultation with him and not have to hear all the same WW's crap I am so used to!

Don't get me wrong though.. I believe WW's is a fantastic organisation, it advocates good, sound, healthy eating.. and IT WORKS... and I will be following the WW's plan still, just not going to the meetings. I am over the meetings.

Breakfast at 10.30 am... spaghetti and cheese on toast ... *drooling*

Stew in his new tie... I got it from the Kia Kaha shop... one of my favourite shops. Has nice stuff with Kiwiana type patterns.
The poor man will also get a lovely dinner I have cooked for him tonight... home made chicken pies! YUM... don't think I will be having one though... too much pastry.
I am so proud of myself! I did NOT eat a pie... and I could have, there were a few left over even! I drooled over the pastry... but THAT IS ALL I did. YAAAA ME. The family loved them too... which is just as well... cos it was friggin SWELTERING in my kitchen this afternoon.
Now that I seem to have my eating under control again, I just have to work on getting more DELIBERATE exercise again.
End of Day: It's been bloody wonderful really. Being in control of my diet again is so empowering... and makes me so happy. nite nite.

    Morning Chris. I hoped you'd have Stew's present on the blog. Wanted to see if he got an overlocker? (I buy me heaps presents now cause I have to buy what I would get from a bloke if I had one huh). Hey I'm glad you changed the pic in your blog. That one is absolutely YOU! Your smile is great.

  11. AAARRRGGGG-I was waiting for you 2 cents on my water blog girl-LMAO!
    Your body still needs it-whether you like it or not! :-)
    Hope Stew has a nice birthday!

  12. Mine has his birthday on Saturday and I'm wracking my brain to think of a gift - I thought you were going to be the answer to my prayers......sadly 'ties' don't figure much in laid back California - we actually have signs on restaurants that say 'shoes and shirt required.'

    Many happy returns of the day.

  13. Happy birthday Stew!!!

    Hope all goes well for the wedding! And you are such a tease with your outfit!
