Hectic weekend ahead!!

It's almost midnight on Thursday, had a few hours of sleep and woke up wide awake, obviously went to bed far too early. So I thought I would do tomorrows blog post now, as I have a hectic day and weekend ahead! Tomorrow is the last day of school before the holidays so it is a quick trip to school to pick up reports, then off to the Mall with my daughter, who is meeting friends for breakfast and a movie,while I go shopping, which I haven't done in ages. On Friday night we are meeting friends for a show and dinner at Emperors Palace , a casino, so obviously will hit the casino later. My boys are in the meantime having a party at the house, so hopefully we will get back to it being in one piece.On Saturday the men have tickets to watch the rugby live, while us girls are going out for cocktails and sushi, meeting the men later for dinner. Sunday will definitely be spent in bed recovering!!

New CU and retiring goodies, diets and LO's!!

After a quiet weekend for a change I started the new week off with a bang!!! I hate to admit it but I have put on 10kg's (I think that's about 20lbs) in the last year. Ok, so I have an under active thyroid, but that is no excuse for doing absolutely no exercise!! So today I managed 15 minutes of treadmill and a few minutes of weights on our home gym equipment. I would like to go to the gym again but I think I would drop dead after a few minutes, so I am getting a bit fit at home first. I took some before pics too, but I will only show those to you after I have lost these 10Kg's!! I actually tried a while ago to loose weight, but managed to put on another 3kgs instead!!! (watch my ticker at the bottom of my blog!!)
