3rd March - How Long??

Oh my - I cant believe it has been so long since I last posted. Isnt it funny how life gets in the way sometimes!!!

Ok - so where to begin...

Well I managed to rest enough to get the back sorted out. I went to Perth on the Friday before the long weekend and went to the dentist for the finial filing in a long line of work and a partial scale and clean. Now my mouth is back to clean and checkups on a 6 monthly basis. Thats a great start.

I also went to the doctor. I have very odd cycles and I am tending to bleed to some degree for most of the month. I dont think anything is really wrong - I'm putting it down to hormones but in the spirit of having health issues seen to this year I have been and consulted my GP. I have now had blood tests and will be having an ultrasound on this weekend coming just to have a look - we will go from there...but my GP isn't overly concerned so that's good.

Saturday I mulled about and did some errands in the city waiting for the boys to come down - we stayed at my inlaws all weekend which was lovely.

I used their treadmill and cross trainer on Friday, Saturday and Monday. It was hard work but my back was great and the only injury was sore knees! But Im fine and its great to have a workout option down there as we go alot.

The only problem I have there is food choices. As I now eat quite different foods to them I sometimes find it hard to avoid temptation. So I have to be super super careful when I go there.

Monday we had lunch with friends and that was nice but again I had too much. At least i know now to work it off...

Tuesday I played badminton and then in the evening I played netball. I loved it - I haven't played netball on a regular basis since I was in high school and I loved it - I also had the stamina to keep up and my team won. So I have decided to play winter netball this year. I am so excited.

Now for the all important information - my official weigh in is a day later than normal as I have been so busy and have a sick son! So here we go:

Check In - February 16th
Bust: 119cm -11cm
Waist: 117cm -16cm
Hips: 120 1/2cm -16 1/2cm
Upper Arm: 35cm -9cm
Thigh: 63cm -11cm
(minus figures are a running total.)

And I have also lost - in the last two weeks - another 2.8 kilos - making my total weight loss 7kgs and a total of 63.5cms off my body.

Check In - 3rd March
Bust: 119cm -11cm
Waist: 116cm -17cm
Hips: 119 1/2cm -17 1/2cm
Upper Arm: 36cm -8cm
Thigh: 63 1/2cm -10 1/2cm
(minus figures are a running total.)

I have also lost 1.1kgs in the last fortnight - making my total 8.1kgs. I have put on some measurement around my thigh and bicep but that would be muscle as I have more defined muscle in that region. I have also lost another 1cm of both my hips and my waist.

So there you go - everything is traveling not too bad! I am about to join the gym and I also have the zumba dvds to look at - should be good to add some more variety.
