We're not in the bush, but we're in an area that is close to bushland, and bigger blocks. And that means more "wildlife". And that means huges spiders. The other night I was watching TV and I saw something out of the corner of my eye..... I shrieked "HUNTSMAN HUNTSMAN HUNTSMAN!!!!" Oooh it makes my skin crawl just thinking about it. Huntsman are especially bad because they are big and hairy and they bloody jump at you... So poor BF had to get up and get the spray and chase thing thing around the lounge room, while I hid in the kitchen (I actually got into the pantry and shut the door... sad arent I?)
Then a few days later I was about to leave for work and I went looking for the cat (just to make sure he wasn't locked in the bathroom or anything) and he was sitting in the garage. Just sitting - looking at the bar-fridge. I asked him what was wrong, and he "meowed" and walked up to the fridge door (we have a strange relationship, me and the cat - he's a talkative Siamese, so we 'chat' quite a bit). So I bumped the fridge and a mid-sized huntsman ran out from underneath. So the cat chased it around and batted it like a ball for a bit with me yelling "GET IT CONNOR - GET IT!". Not sure if he got it - I had to leave before the game was finished. I hope he did, otherwise there's another spider loose in the house.
I've been using Fitday again since last Thursday, and managing to keep my calories in check. I have realised that I was grossly undercalculating how much I was actually eating - it is so easy to consume more calories than you think you are. Anyway, now its under control, and I feel a lot more focussed. Actually seeing some changes on the scale, so thats a plus. For me, using Fitday is a really good idea, it makes me rethink everything I'm about to eat...
Woke up at 3 o'clock this morning - and spent the next 2 hours dozing, then waking up - for some reason I kept thinking I'd overslept. When I actually got up, the first thing I thought was "Oh well, at least today is Friday.... hang on.... its only Thursday - groan" Did Body Attack again this morning, got through 400 calories. Felt like I got through it a lot easier than last week too - yay! I love the high-kicking track - reminds me of my jazz ballet days when we used to do the Can-Can. Then I'm taking the dogs for another powerwalk this afternoon, and then Step tomorrow morning. Just call me Cardio-Queen!
