Not feeling fab

God why have I got this sore throat again so soon?

I only just got rid of it after having it for 3 weeks. I can't be bothered doing anything at all. The clothes are still on the line, others still in the basket waiting to be ironed, the bench is cluttered, the kitchen table is full, the floor needs to be swept and mopped....................... but I can't even be bothered to walk to the kettle to make me another hot drink, so I will just drink my cold coffee, at least that is cool on my throat.

I have been giving the Melb marathon some thought and will probably only do the 5.5k walk I think. Because I have been sick, I really haven't been out walking at all and since we are in Melbourne, the weather hasn't been walker friendly lately. In just over a week I will be back on the early shift so will get home from work earlier so that will be better for walking.

I do seem to have my mind full at the moment in relation to our application for adoption that it has taken up allot of my thinking space. But now that my life story is complete, we will probably have a good six months to wait until we would have a social worker assigned to us, so that will my time to relax.

We also decided to go back to Bali next year. What started as a surprise holiday for Dazza and myself, turned into taking both our mum's and now Dazza's sister and her 2 daughters (aged 14 and 10) joy :

Ok, so how did that happen?

Well look what turned up in my letterbox Friday! I just put in on the bench with the rest of the mail and didn't look to see what it was until Saturday, then of course I thought, yeah right, and put it back down.

A little while later it looked as me again and I thought, that's what Kristy is going to do, like I could do that. But I didn't put it down. Although I know that I wouldn't do any run part, I did notice that I could do a 5.5k walk. The 10k didn't say if you could walk but instead of letting it go, here I am on the web page finding that you can walk it but you have to be at the first cut of within an hour. I have been able to map put my route around our main streets and it equals 5.2k which is exactly the same k's I would have to do in the hour and pretty sure I can make that.

So hence the title of this post 'where the hell did that come from?' me deciding to get my arse back into fitness? I've been semi-happy being a slob, even put on more kilo's, now at 92kilos and holding steady. I say semi-happy because of course I don't like being this big but really can't find any inclination to do anything about it. Until Now that is.

So yesterday out we went to go to the doctors for new medicals for our infant adoption, and then to the shopping centre to get Dazza's haircut (which we didn't) and I got me some shiny new Puma Cell runners. I still can't get over the 'I can't spend allot of money thing' so my new runners were on special for $80. My photo doesn't really do them any justice.
So now I just have to decide with route to do, 5.5k or 10k. Although my biggest problem has always been, to get my lazy but into the city at that hour of the morning which is normally still on the chilly side.

Here I am

I know, I know, I have been lost but now I am found ;)

Yes the wall is finished and now I have to finish painting and laying tiles. Well I have started the painting, as for the tiles, well they are neatly stacked up outside.

I haven't really been doing much except for working. We haven't had internet access for a while and am only this week back online. Dazza is stuck on night shift so I'm home alone at night, you would think I would find something useful to do, like exercise, yoga, walking DVD's but no, not me. The non chocolate eater - and yes there are some of us out here - well has become a chocolate biscuit fend. So I watch crap TV and eat. well that's not entirely true. I get Dazza up in the morning to drive me to the train (the only time I see him in a day) then go to work, catch the train home, its dark, wait for the bus (sometimes 30 minutes if I miss it) then walk the part of the way home, feed all of my 5 fur babies (remember them 3 dogs, 2 cats) then make our dinner, wash the dishes, eat shit on the couch and go to bed and do the same the next day for 5 days running and then the weekend hits. Yay do the house work like washing. Can only do washing on the weekend when someone will be home or Humphrey (Alaskan malamute) who is getting bored with no walks, pulls them off the line for me, he is so helpful, if only he could keep them off the ground and put them in a clothes basket and bring them in the house instead of the backyard : I'm sure I can train him :P

So out with my mother shopping as I do every Saturday, she must weigh herself, you see he has so many illness and always has but in the past 12 months she can not keep weight on, she tries to eat allot but it doesn't help. He appetite is really low actually, so back to the story, she 'must' weigh herself, of course she does this without taking shoes or bulky tops or keys from pocket of mobile phone out of pocket - or is that just me? - well she always loses weight, where are I, with my chocolate biscuit phase manages to put on the weight. I hit 93 kilo's! yes that is now officially the largest I have been. I am slowly losing it, well after 1 week I was down to 91 kilo's. But anyway, the thing is nothing has changed for me, I'm still lazy.

I will start to read some blogs and you will notice that I will be back in action, leaving strange comments on others blogs :)
