Happy Friday everyone! I am so delighted its almost the weekend! I love my weekends!
Although this one will be filled with doing college work!
I have an article review to do! Igts a review of an academic article which has to be 800 words in length.
I also have to sort out my presentation! I will be presenting on schizophrenia next week in class. I am so nervous!
I am going to do it all on Saturday. The weather is meant to be bad this weekend so it will be good that I am staying indoors and getting my work done.
Mom and her sisters are supposed to go out tonight for dinks, I was going to go with them, but I’ve decided now that I wont. I wouldnt be drinking if I did, and if I did I’d have to leave Nitro alone for a long time, about 5 or 6 hours, and I dont want to do that.
My PA is going to be here in an hour. The storm has passed, its not raining or windy outside, so I am going to walk to the ATM get my money out, and I am also going to go to the gym.
I havent been to the gym in a while. I want to start going again. I gained about 2 pounds while I was away. I need to lose that and some more on top of it by next week for my weigh in.
I am also going to go volunteering today. I will get in touch with my supervisor later and I will go in after lunch. I am looking forward to it.
I hope you all have a great friday!
Well I feel somewhat better. I took a whole load of meds. That seems to have helped somewhat.
I’m at my parents now. I’ll be here for a few days.
Mom and dad are gone out, so I have the house to myself, well the dogs are here, but other than them its just me.
Dad has an apt with the eye doctor. So mom went with him.
I’m happy cuz I can still go to the gym tonight. That makes me happy.
Exercise will do me good I think. I need to exercise.
Did I tell you it cost me 80 euro to fix my house alarm? Yep. Good thing I had extra money. It was 10 euro for each battery and I needed 7 batteries, and then the guy charged me 10 euro for fitting them.
Tomorrow evening I am going for a meal with the old staff from the basement club. There are a few of us going. It should be fun. It will be nice to see them all again.
Anyway I’m going to go and make a cup of tea now. And book my taxi to take me to the gym later on.
had a really productive morning with my pa.
we went to the gym. I did 20 mins on the treadmill and 15 on the bike. I felt great after it. I think exercising really did me good.
Afterwords we had to go to the store to pick up a few things. I got stuff for lunch, and a few other small things I needed. Then we went to the ATM so I could get my money out for the week.
After that we got a taxi home. We had walked to the gym and then I did the exercise so I wasnt feeling up to walking back home. The taxi driver who picked us up, I knew him. He was very chatty and friendly.
Once we got home my PA cleaned my house for me. She changed my bed, vacumed the floors, did dishes, mopped the floors etc. That took about an hour. By the time all that was done it was almost time for her to leave.
Now that she’s gone I am unsure of what I will do for the afternoon. I dont have anything planned. I think I’ll just relax. The guy who fitted my house alarm is supposed to come later today. He has to fit new batteries in all of the sensors around my house. He didnt give me a time that he’d arrive, he just said when he has a chance he’ll call.
So I guess I’ll go make a coffee. Nitro is relaxing too. He was pretty hyped up all morning. So he’s having a bit of a rest now. He’s so funny, always so hyper when my Pa comes. He just loves her. He loves to stick his nose in her face and get cuddles and rubs from her.
Ok well off to make that cup of coffee, before I am distracted, my friend just sent me some messages on fb, I started replying to him and now I am just totally distracted.
i thought we were going to go out today to the beach. my sister had said she might go to the beach and mom and me thought if she was going we’d go too. we were going to walk on the beach, weather is good here today, no rain, no ice or snow, just cold but dry…
anyway now we’re not going. or we think we arent. my sister said the kids want to stay home. since our niece got her i phone she doesnt want to go anywhere, lol, she cant leave the damn phone out of her hand…
so its doubtful we’re going now…so i will just chill out here at mom and dads house instead. I am still tired anyway from last night. I might read later on this afternoon. Other than that not much going on…
I just took a long, hot bubble bath! It was bliss!
I am feeling very relaxed now! It feels good!
I am enjoying this nice quiet sunday at my parents house. I am glad I went grocery shopping yesterday. It saved a lot of stress as if I went today I’d have had to take nitro, and my sister was going to take me, but then she’d have had to bring her kids, we’d have had nitro, the shopping, and then trying to fit all of us and the shopping in the car would have been a nightmare!
So I am glad mom took me yesterday! It was good to go get it done. I was able to think what I needed, but I did forget shampoo! Good thing I keep some at my parents house, so I can bring that home until I can get some more later in the week.
My plan today is to do a 20 minute workout on my phone, a walking workout. I was going to go out walking, but it rained. So the workout will suffice.
On another note, and this may be tmi for all you men out there, but my weight loss is progressing nicely, I tried on a bra this morning, one I had that wouldn’t fit me when I weighed 2 stone heavier, and this morning, it fit and fit perfectly! I am delighted, mom also said my tummy seems to be getting smaller so win win!
I feel great! Always nice to get compliments! I’ll take them when I am getting them!
I had a very quiet day at home. After the drama with the neighbour earlier, I didnt hear anything else aboutit so I assume everythings ok, and the police are now investigating.
I was exhausted by four pm, so I went to bed, to read. Of course I fell asleep. I didnt wake up until 8:30 PM. I will probably be up a while now, since I woke up so late.
I decided to cook. I made yummy sweet potato fries and some chicken, and I’ve just eaten it. It was delicious.
My plan for tomorrow is to go to the gym. My PA will be here at 9 AM. My plan is go to the gym, and then go get my weekly money out of the ATM.
Of course I am also volunteering tomorrow afternoon. And then I have college on saturday all day. We’re doing the second wrap training. I’m going to mom and dads for the weekend too.
Well thats about it from here. Hope all of you had a good thursday.
So last night at slimming world, I had a maintain. That means, I didnt gain but I didnt lose anything either.
I’m happy with that. I am glad I wasnt up any weight. A maintain is not ideal, but its better than being up.
I am ok with it. I am just going to work really hard this coming week, to turn that around. And so when I go back next week I’ll hopefully be down som e weight.
I wasnt the only person who had a maintain either last night. So I felt good that I wasnt alone.
Heres to a better week next week!
