I think the picture says it all

Yeap, that's right, my jeans are getting tighter
people! I haven't been climbing those stairs I took the photo of the other day from Flagstaff station, think I will invest in a treadmill for home. I think I have said this before but since my sinuses have been playing up, the doc telling me I'm not getting enough oxygen and that I'm always tired, I think its time. So please people help me keep on track :P

My new babies

Yesterday we went into Up Markets Pet Store to look at more snakes as Dazza wants a newbie so he can breed them but low and behold I ended up putting a deposit on 2 of the littlest Painted Dragons I have ever seem. As adults they only get to 65mm. They are so speedy its just so funny to watch. I have put a deposit on a pair, male & female and whilst there they were doing the monkey business already! The boys are brightly coloured especially after they shed their skin, the girls on the other hand are just a standard brown. This pic on the side is not my dragon and you can see some of his colour showing through but that appears to be the red sand that he may have been rolling in. The are blight blues, yellows, reads and whites. just stunning. I thought maybe I should just have to males as they are so pretty but that won't work as they are territorial. I decided that I want a glass coffee table so that they can be in the lounge room. You really can not get them out as they are so quick you would never catch them, however if you have a bit of depth you can put your hand in and they will not jump so can't get out. I can't wait to pick them up but first have to get their enclosure right oh and make of course.

Oh my aching back

I didn't realise how out of shape I must be................................... well maybe I did. Whenever I bathe and groom the dogs, mop the floor and sometimes when I vacuum, my back goes on me that same night. Now I mean that I can not walk that same night and sometimes into the next day. I'm assuming it is my sciatic nerve doing it to me as I once a very long time ago had it in both legs which stopped me walking, or turn over or getting out of bed. It seems my body just isn't made for work?? Maybe I really should be a lady of leisure? I always new I was a princess.
So now I have come back to my post after being really pee'd off as I lost it all earlier.
I was originally saying that I think that I should start to do the Yoga and/or Pilate's as it will probably help put with what is obviously weak back muscles. Imagine if I one day fulfil my dream of becoming a mother and have problems bathing kids, if I can't even bathe the dogs for god sake. I was lucky enough to have inherited osteo also in my hips so it could all be very uncomfortable.
I also received a strange email today from someone saying that they saw my profile on SportzBlitz and wanted to get to know me better, the funny thing is, I haven't been active on that board in a while so found it unusual for someone to contact me out of the blue. Not only that, but the last sentence really hit the nail on the head for strangeness. I quote:
"I believe we can move from here.I am waiting for your mail to my email address above.miss Vivian.(Remeber the distance or colour does not matter but love matters alot in life)"
They also wanted to send a picture of them selves to me???? Hello strange. Has anyone had an email from someone like this recently? I know I have all of a sudden become very popular with overseas persons needing a partner to help out with all of their money in a bank somewhere overseas. Can I help, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm NO!
Anyway, off I go now, can't remember what else I was going to chat about today but glad that the day is at least over.

I really have to get moving

As the title states I really need to get moving, don't know how or when but I do. I've been thinking about it this morning and thought that maybe I should try Yoga, in a real yoga place, you know where the temp is turned up to sweat. I wouldn't mind trying Pilate's as well but unsure where I would go for 'real' Pilate's.

Food is still a problem for me, I had breakfast this morning at about 6.50am 2 weat bix and a banana with lite milk but still wanted something by the time I got to work in the city, what I really wanted was some nuts or something but there wasn't any place I could get them this morning, so went to a health food place and got a yohgurt with muesli which was so thick and creamy but also very heavy so didn't need to eat it all. Think now that its morning tea time I will eat my fruit salad or will I have the left over yoghurt from this morning ...................

Not much to tell

So there isn't really that much to tell at the moment, day by day, is all I'm doing.

I think I may have told you this already but my friend Cath is pregnant and is about 12 weeks now. Cath is due to deliver on 28th April 2008 which is also my mums birthday. I think I will put a ticker on my page to count her down. This is the count down that we have been waiting for for about 7 years now I think its been. So we are all really excited for her. She is still cautious of course but my finger and toes are crossed.

I'm going to get back into walking more as I am going to be TTC again in the near future so keep your fingers crossed for me.


So after saying I was going to walk more, that's exactly what I did. I took both of my puppies for a long stroll. When we got back they were a bit puffed out poor darlings.

I also mowed both front and back lawns today.

I have packed my lunch for tomorrow which consists of a yoghurt, fruit salad (home made) vita weats, cottage cheese, sliced tomato and a ham/cheese sanga on multigrain bread, oh and my fruit box drink. Surely I won't need to pick at unhealthy foods with all of that in my bag.

Today is the day of change

So today I woke up and thought this has got to change, I'm still tired but that's because I went to bed later last night. But I must admit I was lazy and didn't walk to the station today but did walk to the bus stop instead. Instead of the crumpets I have had 2 multi grain vita brits with 1% milk and 2 coffees so far. I did pick me up some fruit salad on the way to work, large for $2.50, what a bargain. Lunch is to be salami and cheese sandwiches x 2, I know still not the best choice but food shopping for the fortnight is this weekend so don't shot me. I did also pack a snack sandwich for just in case of a peanut butter sanga. Put that together with the fruit box drink and water and I should be set for the day. Dinner tonight will be sausages and something, probably chips, I know, I can hear you yelling from here Kek.

Well best start work, talk later..................

Oh My God!

I just don't know what's going on. I am so hungry of late. I can't get enough food. I am bringing my lurch to work everyday but by morning tea, boy, I could eat the leg off a table. This is what I ate yesterday.

Breakfast - 2 crumpets with butter, 2 coffees, Up & Go (on the train)

Morning tea - Snickers and halve a pack of Cheese Balls ( of which I had to force myself to be sick because it was too much for my system to take and I felt really ill)

Lunch - 2 ham and pickle sandwiches, fruit box drink

Dinner - Home made spaghetti with meat sauce

Popcorn made with butter and oil and salt with coke and started on the bag of chicken chips in the cupboard brought for Darren!

So today's has continued in the same direction, although I must admit that my size 14 pants still fit and probably fit me better than when I actually brought them about 2 months ago.

These are the stairs at Flagstaff Station in Melbourne

Thought I would add a picture, its been a while since I've added one. These are the stairs I have the option of of using in the morning which will also help with my exercise. now keep in mind that there are 2 sets of these stairs and this morning I could only cope with climbing one set.

What to do, what to do???

So I missed the bus yesterday which luckily didn't make me late as our new electric train line is running, so had to hoof it down to the train station on foot, still managed to catch the train I wanted anyways :-) So, now I'm thinking that that instead of catching the bus to the station, I might just walk to the train station from now on, it will give me a 30 minute walk in the morning and then a 10 minute walk once in the city and then another 15 minute walk to get to Dazza to come home at night. There I have now increased my incidental exercise. Thanks so much for your comment yesterday Kerryn about using some stairs at work, but the problem is that at my new work they are really big on OH&S, you may say, most places are, but have you ever heard of not being 'allowed' to put your coat/jacket on the back of your chair? This is too much for the new work to tolerate, they have jacket cupboards everywhere as they do not want you to roll on your jacket causing you injury!!! They have even divided the cupboards into smokers and non-smokers, which I am a non-smoker thankfully. So my point is, I do work on the 6th floor and have lunch on the 7th floor, however we are not 'allowed' to use the stairs unless it is an emergency like fire! Not to come to work, leave work or even to go between floors! Well end this post as I have to leave to go to the train station in a minute and I have to finish my crumpets with butter :P
