One more sleep

Well its off to Melbourne tomorrow morning bright and early.  I have seen this morning that its going to be a maximum of 13 degrees in Melbourne today... a bit of a shock to the system I think for me, as we've been having overnight minimums of 11 degrees, and maximums of about 22.  I think I'm going to be cold!

I started to pack some gear last night, only to come to the realisation that I do not really have any good winter clothes!!  No time to shop now, so I'm just going to have to go with layers this weekend!  Luckily I do have some gloves and a scarf though!!   I am one of those people who, no matter how many times I check my luggage, I'm sure to forget something!!  Its usually not until I'm sitting on the plane halfway to my destination that I realise - "Do'h!  I forgot my hairbrush/toothpaste/deodorant"!!!  Luckily I've come to realise that MOST things can be bought anywhere - with the exception of maybe my glasses and contact lenses... so as long as I've got those essentials, I can get by!!

I've been the cardio queen this week - lots and lots of interval jogging, cross trainer, and I've even ventured onto the bike this week to try and vary the workouts a bit.  Been drenched in sweat after each session, and I mean dripping... yuk.  Its all good though, I feel less bloated this week.

Last night I had forgotten to get meat out of the freezer for dinner, so I was at a loss for what to have.  Anyway a few weeks ago on a whim I bought these Birds Eye Steam Fish Fillets, this one was in a Thai Coconut Curry sauce - microwave for 5 minutes and its done.  So I had that with salad and I have to say, it was soooo yummy!!  Only about 160 calories, 23g protein, 4.3g fat and 3.4 carbs.  Not too bad for those nights when you dont feel like cooking anyway.

So thats about it from me.  I'll post again on Sunday or Monday - hopefully should have lots of photos from the comp!  Cant wait to meet everyone!  Hope you all have a great weekend!

Good luck in not freezing your butt off in Melbourne!!!
Those frozen fish fillets are great, I use them all the time cause I get tired of cooking so much these days, what with all the fish and chicken I have to eat... lol
