My Progress

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Ahhh, Thursdays. The one day I have nothing to do until I pick 5yo up from school.
I was exhausted yesterday. I succeeded in having a huge blue with Hubby and then ignoring him, and I was in bed by 8:30. It would have been earlier, but I really wanted to watch "Good News Week" that I'd taped on Monday night.

I feel like I haven't stopped for the last couple of weeks and, while I want to stop, there is no sign of things slowing down before Christmas. Then in the new year, I am ripping out my kitchen so we can get a new one put in. It's only taken us 10 years to do this!!

But anyway, I've been busy, I'm tired, grumpy, still sore.

But for once it's because I'm doing things. On Tuesday I went to the pool twice. 4yo had her lesson in the morning, so I went and did laps, all 400m of them. :-) Then in the afternoon 5yo had her lesson, so we went in again and had a play. The girls slept well that night. I didn't hear boo out of them.
But I was bloody cold! Now, our local pool is "environmentally friendly" (read:- tight arses on the heating bill) and you have to brace yourself to get in there. I think this sucks for an indoor pool. They also had a door open that blew a cool breeze over the pool. I know my internal thermostat is pretty screwed at the moment, but after 45 minutes, I just couldn't stay in there anymore. I love the water, so I was disappointed that I couldn't stay longer. My reduced insulation is taking quite a lot to get used to. And they don't heat the pool up enough.

Wednesday morning is workout day. I go to a friend's place and use her home gym. She has a treadmill, bike, recumbant bike, ab roller and air walker. And the freaky one you move your feet in and out and it works the inner thighs. I don't bother with that one. But I use all the others. It's good and we've done it for about a month now.

I've been off and picked up 5yo from school and have lost the total gist of what I was trying to say with this blog. 5pm is where I hit the wall and can't think anymore. So I might leave it here and try again tomorrow.

Although, I will say, I had a look at my weightloss over the last 2 months. I'm averaging 100g a week at the moment. Not moving mountains, but it's chipping away. It's not as bad as I thought. If I take the zigzagging out of it, it doesn't look that bad. ;-)

Til next time,


  1. I'd be thrilled with 100g a week right now. Baby steps.
    Sounds like you are all so busy. Bet you can't wait for the holidays. :o)

  2. Ness you are doing ok ..look at how far you have come and work out 100 grms a week by 52 weeks and heh that is a good loss in any language your work out .. so must nicer when you work out with someone ... just keep chipping away at it thats the way to go **hugs**
