The past few days I've had no idea what day it is!
Probably because Wednesday was a public holiday, then Stew took two days off work.  So, I thought yesterday was Saturday till Stew put me right last night.

So, clearly it's Saturday TODAY.  And we don't really have any plans.

I would have liked to go oUT somewhere, anywhere for a change.  But it's supposed to be a wet day, so not much point.

I don't really feel like sewing today either, so I think I will move stuff around in the spare bedroom.  It really doesn't work as a 'spare bedroom' at all.

I was going to buy a single bed for the room, but have changed my mind.  I will just use the couch that's in there, and add the ottoman that matches it to extend it's length, then it can be used as a bed when necessary.

What else?  No idea really.  So, until I have something more interesting to yak about, I'm going.

Catch ya later.


Making this quick ... for now.
We went for another walk!
This time we went around the Hamilton Lake, which is 3.8 km long.  It was perfect weather for it, overcast, cool, few spits of rain.  Took us about 45 minutes, cos I'm SLOW as right now.

Cooking our lunch right now, almost 2 pm.  Starving.

A few photos of our walk:

 ABOVE:  In the backyard of a home that backs onto the path around the lake.  Amazing artwork!  Steve would LOVE IT.

 ABOVE:  Gorgeous fluffy baby pukekos!  Seems far too early for chicks!  It's the start of winter!

ABOVE:  I made Stew and I 'carb-less kebabs' for our lunch.  It looks almost exactly like the meal we bought at the mall on Thursday.  I cooked a couple of beef patties and some falafel I had in the freezer for us.  Our meal was delicious.
Again, I probably won't be very hungry at 'dinner time', so will have something very light again then.

10 pm:  it's been a quiet, lazy afternoon.  Stew cooked steak and veg for dinner tonight.  Again, as I wasn't feeling hungry at all, I had some yogurt and berries just now.  And that's a wrap for the day!
Catch ya tomorrow.

    Yesterday I went to a dietitian and nutritionist group practice and had a consultation and Inbody 570 scan (look up the scanner on google) it gives you an overall picture of your body composition etc..only takes a couple of minutes and you just stand on it holding some levers. I found out I had a high visceral fat count of 20 it should only be around 10 no surprises there really although my muscle mass is higher for people my age as was my bone mineral count so that was good at least. It gives you a really detailed page of your body. I recommend it to anyone it only costs about $40 and has given me an extra motivation....I have become an apple shape which of course means more fat on the abdomen which is not good...I need to lose a lot of weight at least 15 kilos. They concentrate on healthy eating rather than counting calories or obsessing over food, they have a plan of changing your mindset and access to everything involved with health etc. They have two one on one sessions a month and a body scan every 3 months, they don't weigh you in between as they think that causes stress as they are more concerned with changing habits etc in a gentle way over a 12 month period. Lots of online support too as well as the one on one meetings.
