Firstly, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for their support and words of wisdom re my last blog post, very much appreciated! You are all beautiful people!
The rest of the week was much less dramatic :) and everyone is friends again, which is good. I dont sleep well when I'm not friends with people LOL! OH and I are both stubborn and we are both the youngest in our families, so we're used to getting our own way! I have to just accept that people want to help and have input in a wedding, and that I cant do it all myself.
This weekend was very sedate. I spent most of Saturday weeding our gravel driveway. I was bent over, yanking out those big "spider" weeds because the ground was still moist from the recent rain. Consequently I got sunburned in a strip accross my lower back (think brickies-bum!!) which is the most stupid, painful spot to get sunburned! It is absolutely roasted, and right where the back of my pants sit. It wasn't even sunny, it was quite overcast and a bit drizzly all day, go figure. I also can now barely walk because my hamstrings are so sore, from bending at the waist all day. It is most strange to have sore hammies, and perfectly fine quads!
After all that weeding, I filled the wheelbarrow 5 times. And then I look at the driveway and think "it barely looks like I've touched it" - gah! there are so many weeds! Ohhhh I would love a concrete or bitumen driveway!
Not much else going on, I'm getting into a really good routine now with training and nutrition, although I'm really struggling to get to gym for opening time in the mornings. I used to be there before they open (5.30am), but now I'm regularly 15 minutes late... tut tut!
I've been seeing a nice, slow downward trend on the scales too lately, which I'm loving. Had a roast dinner at the in-laws last night though, which caused a nasty spike this morning.
I'm excited that The Biggest Loser and So You Think You Can Dance are back on too - both TV shows that make me really conscious about what I'm eating... especially with all those hot bodies in SYTYCD! I dont watch a huge amount of TV, but I make exceptions in this case :)
Better go start dinner... TTFN.
