What a load of . . . .

I work with a great bunch of people.  Over the years they have become more of a second family to me.  We have all shared a lot of life changes and been there to help and support each other through some really difficult times. 

However, we do play practical jokes on each other.  The other morning I came to work, went to pull out my chair and nearly had a heart attack.  There was this humungous big load of shit on my chair.



You can bet I yelled and I'm sure my heartrate lifted quite a bit.  It looked so real.

Many thanks to the builders doing maintenance on the building who decided to add a prop!!!!


And it promises to be a beautiful weekend.   I'm so looking forward to a fine, warm one where maybe I can relax out on the deck and enjoy some sun for a change.

Planning on lots of gardening, mowing the lawns and waterblasting all the damn pollen that has latched itself onto the decks and the joinery. 

Although I haven't been posting all is going well.  My scales konked out on me last week so I bought a new battery and it still wouldn't work, was just about ready to buy a new one when Mr T looked at it got it going again.

My weight is 77.2 kgs.  Overall so far 2.8 kgs and I'm nearing the end of my third week.

I have been busy and had a few functions to go to which threw me out of sync a bit but you get straight back on track.

 
I've been eating lettuce sandwiches lately.  Although this photo doesn't do it justice they are really tasty.
 
Apology:  This is a draft from last week.  I have not been able to access most blogs and can't leave comments.  Our new server at work is not allowing us to open any links which is quite frustrating.  Hopefully this will be corrected soon.
 
Take care all.

A week on . . .

 
 
I've finished my first week on my new journey.  For the first time I've journalled everything and didn't miss a thing.  I've put down not just what I ate but how I felt as well. 
 
If you want to see how I got on then check out the journal page.  I have also taken photos but not quite ready  to publish those yet, I wanna be able to see a change first.  Sad, and vain aren't I lol.
 
 
I know the weather is pretty unpredictable at the moment but that is spring weather.  I for one am not letting the rain get me down as we have also had some some really lovely days too.
 
I got my spring perfume the other day.  I like wearing this to work as it smells nice and makes me feel fresh.  Very fitting for the season.
 
 
 
Our little man started kindy about three weeks ago.  As he finishes at 5pm  thought I'd pick up and take him home cause it will give me extra special time to spend with him and I get to see Sophia as well.  Because of working life and other commitments I worry that I'm not spending enough time with the grandies.  By picking Lucas up makes me feel a lot better.  We don't get to see Kayla as much because they live across town and at the weekends they are also busy. 
 
Anyhoos  on Friday pick up I ended up bringing Spiderman home. 
 
 


When he saw me he came running up to me with a big smile on his face. 




One happy little boy.

This was taken yesterday.  He was wearing his skinny jeans, lol, and he looked so grown up.



 
A bit of a goofy grin.  He came for a visit so mum & dad could have a rest.
 
That's it for now.  I might post my journal a bit more frequent now.  I am very determined and I know I can do this.
 
Ciao for now.

The day after the best day ever ....

Came down to earth quick.

Mr T had been up to hospital for his medical checkup  and the news was that he has to have ANOTHER operation.  This is the fourth.
It seems the throbbing in his finger is an exposed nerve and he has to have surgery to pull it out.  It even makes me want to cringe just typing it.

Anyhow he's back in hospital in about a month or so, after his bronchitis has cleared up.  He's already been through his admittance and he's seen the anasthesiologist.  Let's hope they get his pain relief right this time and we have a quicker recovery  and let's hope this is the LAST time.

After the initial reaction we now just want to get it over and done with so we can get back to normal. 

Between last November and March of this year I lost over 12 kg.  I felt really fantastic.  The past six months have thrown us some curve balls and I've put on nearly 6 kgs.  I needed to do something, but I also needed to be in that right headspace.  Last week I searched and read a lot on the internet.  I bought things that I needed online that I knew were going to help me. 

This Monday, 3rd September I began with a total commitment.  Monday I weighed 80 kg.  I've also started a journal which is basically a reference for myself but you can read it too.  Just don't go there yet as I haven't published it yet.  I will do a full week and document it and then hit publish.  After that it will be daily, even if it's only brief. 

This page will be the same as usual and I'll still mention how I'm going but the other page will be more indepth.

So that is where I am right now.  I can't remember when I've been quite so determined.

It's cool, daylight saving starts in just over 3 weeks time.

Ciao

Regular post in the making.  Is it really possible to jinx something you post about????    Well it can't be cause I don't believe in that.
 
Plus I'm  thinking of adding another couple of pages to this blog. 
 
Back soon.
 

 
 
 

Miserable day . . .

Winter has well and truly arrived.   A very bleak day,  - wet, cold and windy.  The garden at work is looking quite glum.   Look...
