We are all moved in to our new place, living amongst a sea of unpacked boxes and holes in walls! Saturday was a HEEEUUUWWWGE day, basically we were on the go for 12 hours before we actually sat down for a rest. My hamstrings were absolutely killing me from all the bending over and reaching down that I was doing (probably should have used my knees more I know) - but anyway, its all done now thank goodness.
There has been so much going on with the move, the old house due to settle next week, and also planning more of the upcoming holiday, that I think I'm going a bit senile. I'll skim-read things, then I not fully understand what I've read... like the other day I saw a sign on the road and it said "Commuter Carpark" but for some reason I read it as "Communist Carpark". I'm forgetting so many things - people ask me to do stuff and 10 minutes later I forget what it was that I was supposed to do. On Monday I filled my mug with hot water and a dash of milk before sitting down and realising that I forgot to put the coffee in first... and last night I was getting my glutamine out to have some before bed and I dropped the container and half of the powder all over the floor. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME???!!!!!! :-)~ Just too much excitement I think.
Anyway my challenge is going pretty well - apart from the crap takeaway that I ate for 3 meals last weekend. Well I had no kitchen and I had to eat something!!
So far, 3 weeks into it, I have lost 3cm off my waist, and 2cm off my (stubborn) hips. Scale weight has only dropped less than a kilo.
I still have no internet at home, and I cant access blogs from work (sending this via email) so I havent been able to read what anyone else has been up to. The ISP has indicated that I should be connected by next Friday. BF is having E-bay withdrawals I think! Plus we haven't got Foxtel hooked up yet - so he's not happy!
Good luck to all those who are competing in the coming days! I'm sorry I cant log on and read everyone's results just yet. I'm going to watch the Qld INBA's this weekend to cheer on Splice and Alicia N. Good luck girls! Will be great to catch up with everyone again.
And I have just found out that I have to go to Gladstone next Monday for 3 days. Will just have to make sure I finish all the unpacking on the weekend... so much to do - so little time!
Perseverance is failing 9 times and succeeding the 10th.
