The weekend

Wow what a fabulous day I had at the Qld INBA's yesterday! It was so inspiring to see all those gorgeous girls on stage flexing those muskels - almost made me want to get up there myself! It was good to catch up with Sue again - she is almost an honourary Queenslander by now! Thanks to Sue I got a great seat near the front, so we had a good view all day - although I was nearly deaf by the end of the show... the speakers were SO loud! You know when you go to clubs and the music is so loud that you cant even hear yourself shout? Thats how loud it was at the front! I had a headache by the time I left.

Tracey and Alicia looked amazing, both looked very confident and not at all nervous - way to go girls! Di and Deb also were fantastic, Debs physique has changed so much since I last saw her, all I could say was WOW! And Di looked so calm and confident, and her routine was one of the highlights of the show - fantastic!

The rest of the weekend was dull by comparison! I did however finally buy myself a new pair of jeans. I took Kelly's advice, and instead of trying on skinny leg jeans, I tried on the straight leg ones, and Kelly you were right - they are much less severe, and a little more flattering on me. I have to admit though, when I put them on to show OH when I got home (and paired them with my new knee high boots and stripey top) one thought kept recurring... "mutton dressed as lamb" !!! hehehe I had to ask OH "Do I look ridiculous? Do I look like I'm trying to look like a 16 year old?" Paranoid that I'm too old to dress like that. He assured me that I didn't look like I was "playing dress-up" in some teenagers outfit... anyway, I'm not 100% convinced yet!

I am also not 100% convinced that my eye has totally settled yet. Some days it feels better than others. Some days I get a funny 'sensation' in the eye - its hard to describe. I'm thinking of taking it a little easy this week in terms of training, especially since I was starting to hit it a little harder last week and my eye didn't seem to like it. In the grand scheme of things, a little more rest isn't going to make a whole lotta difference. Its difficult not to feel guilty about resting though.

My left eye is now scheduled to be done in 2 weeks time and I cant wait!

Here's a few photos from Sunday (sorry some are a bit blurry)

I know the feeling of - am I dressing for my age - do I look like a fool OH too well!

I can only hope that my friends are honest enough to tell me when I've gone too far - BEFORE I leave the house!

Great news on the eye/vision! Hope the other goes as well!

Hey Hils
Sounded like an awesome show to be at!! Thanks for the pics.

I know what you mean about the music, I struggle with loud music for prolonged periods of times - I must be getting old!!! (not that old though, I have it pumping in my classes, esp Bodyattack!! )

Hope you are well
