Lady of Leisure....for now.

My fitness plan has been going well. I have been walking everyday, and plan to do a spin bike class tommorrow at this new gym that's a bit closer, and a weights and treadmill session on Friday. I feel really fit, but the scales are not moving as quick as I would like them too. Maybe it's because I am eating a damn mini chocolate chip muffin from Brumbys Bakery as I type. (damn them to hell).

I have been good all week and was craving one of these, I mean I have to live don't I... There, I've talked myself into it so I'll keep eating it, and walk it off tommorrow.

Actually Miss T (aged 4) and I have a good routine happening at the moment. The weather is warm, so we drop the kids off at school and we walk up the hill to the shopping centre, where we collapse and drink our water. She brings her bubba along and she pushes the pram on the easy bits. I am determined to get bikini ready for summer (that's a figure of speech really because as I have said before, there is no way in hell I will ever wear a bikini again - maybe boardies and a bikini top if I'm lucky).

Then we drive home and do the washing, and clean up then have lunch and Miss T watches a dvd while I lay my butt on the couch and read my book. I am really enjoying this time with her because she is going to school next year and I will have to get a part time job. Which I am dreading because being out of the workforce for nearly 10 years has turned my brain to mush. I forget how to interact with adults without referring to kid related topics like vomiting, tantrums (them and me), school discos and how to get the girls to eat peas.

Hang on, getting a job may not be so bad after all.....

I hear you on the adult interactions without referring to kid related topics. Too often I've brought up diapers, poop, and spit-up in a conversation with a person I've just met! It's no wonder I don't have very many friends :)

If you can't enjoy a chocolate chip muffin every now and then what's the point? Good luck!

You only live once right? Enjoy it all now! Bikini's are over rated anyway! =)

My husband tells me all the time just how out of touch I am from not working for so many years. I find that hard to believe but maybe it's true. =:o
