I havent posted in so long that I'm suprised I'm still allowed access! I've been so tired and hormonal lately that I havent had the energy or the will to get on the computer at nights and surf like i used to. Ive been really terrible with exercise only making it to the gym once a week and the odd walk here and there. I'm ashamed of what I've turned into - a lazy fat slob. I dont even really look properly pregnant yet. Im in that awful inbetween stage where you just look fat and you dont fit into any of your clothes but youre still not big enough for maternity wear. I come home after work and I just want to sleep and be left alone. Ive been avoiding housework like the plague and even cooking has been rare. We make do with sandwiches or tuna salads or (gasp)) takeaway. Also, as you can tell my spelling and punctuation has also gone out the door. I yell at people when they annoy me and ive lost all passion for everything i used to feel passionate about. Im a real mess.
Apart from that evrythings great! im just going through the motions....

Well, it seems every second person has been sick these past couple weeks but thankfully I am better now. I worked every day apart from the day i left early - I was not letting myself fall behind no matter what!! Especially with the mini-getaway we've got coming up this weekend - we're headed to the Gold Coast for three days. Its not much but its better than nothing. I have to be back at work by Tuesday otherwise I'd stay forever!! I just love it up there. We figured I probably wouldnt be able to fly in January when we normally have our big holiday so we have split our budget into three mini holidays so we dont miss out completely.

I have not been keeping up my training at all these past couple weeks apart from walking so this week I decided to throw myself back into it. On Monday I did Body Attack and Body Pump as I missed the classes and I also did a 30 min walk/jog with a client. Yesterday I walked for an hour and did the same today. I've also got another walk/jog planned tonight with a client. I really dont know what i will do when I get too big to jog or lift things. I'm already struggling with some things. Today, I realised that the hill that I used to run up easily a couple months ago had either gotten much steeper or that I have lost a remarkable amount of fitness as I was breathing heavy just walking up it. Oh, the shame!

I'm also trying to deal with the fact that I missed out on Justin Timberlake tickets. He's only doing two in Melbourne and they both sold out in a matter of minutes. He has stated that he only ever does two in a row so we're out of luck to get tickets to a third show. Lazy bastard!!
And I'm definately NOT paying $400 a ticket on ebay - I'm not THAT desperate!

You can probably tell by the above picture that I'm sick. I've got gastro according to the doctor and she cant give me anything for it because of the baby. I've lost about 2.5kg in less than a day from all the vomiting and toilet trips - not a good way to lose weight!! I had to leave work early yesterday and I must have left just in time because as soon as I got home I threw up the only thing I had eaten all day which was a banana. Gross! I had some toast and chamomile tea in the evening and that came out the wrong way too. Now I'm too scared to eat anything because I hate vomiting - its the worst sensation. Lucky my trusty mum has made me some delicious chicken soup and I'm hoping it goes down and STAYS DOWN!

I'm not getting on here much lately, am I?? Its not just here - I havent had time to even turn on the computer lately, let alone write posts! I guess its because I'm in front of the computer all day at work and the last thing you want to do is come home and sit in front of the computer some more. My eyes need a break! I check my emails from work so I dont miss anything important.

I'm settling in there quite well I think. The only thing that bothers me is that I have to miss out on the Tuesday morning Step class (I think I've complained about this before but its really bugging me!) I went to Body Attack on Monday -It was great! I did Body pump after it too - I thought I'm here I might as well squeeze in as many classes as I can! I have been walking/jogging and doing RT at home so I havent been there in quite a while! Its crap that they only have two Step classes a week and both of them are during work hours. Maybe I need to look for a place that does them at a time that suits me.

Last night I had a huge craving for a juicy hamburger so I decided to make my own healthy version. I was so looking forward to it while buying the lean mince, lettuce/tomato/cheese and wholemeal grainy roll. But when I got home and took one whiff of the raw meat I felt like throwing the lot in the bin! The family was hungry though so I screwed up my nose and pursed my lips so I wouldnt smell it and continued with preparing the meal even though it was torture ( I still had to breathe somehow!) I love my George Foreman grill - I just hate cleaning it though. SO we sat down and I ate the whole burger surprisingly - I must have been hungry.

Then later on in the evening I watched the Anita Cobby murder on TV. I remember reading the book when I was younger but hearing the story this time round really affected me. I was bawling ( maybe hormones I dont know) but it was a tragic tragic story. It just makes you think that anytime out of nowhere you can lose someone close to you. Its just a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I fell asleep thinking depressing thoughts but when I woke up I remembered my dream had been about the Justin Timberlake concert - go figure!! WHich reminds me, I better go check when the tickets go on sale - cant miss out on seeing that hot bod up close!!

Yes, you saw right. Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. My big news is that I just found out I'm pregnant - well not JUST but not long ago anyway and I'm announcing it now. I'm pretty excited and a little anxious that I've forgotten how to look after a newborn. Its probably just hormones. They are really raging at the moment. Its only early stages (about 11 weeks or so) so nothing much has happened yet apart from me constantly feeling like crap and succumbing to the worst food cravings ever! Hopefully by next week it'll be all over and I'll be glowing and feeling full of energy! And fingers crossed my boobs look as good as the ones in the picture!

In other news, I started my new job on Monday, and I'm really enjoying it so far. The people seem nice, the office is pleasant and its a nice change working somewhere where you don't have to constantly look your best and act happy all the time even when you're feeling crap. I'm glad I don't have to answer phones or do anything requiring a pleasant disposition because to be honest sometimes I just feel like crying/yelling/puking/whinging/whatever (hormones probably - I'm normally very grounded, and nice too :) ). The bad news is that I'll have to miss out on my fave Body Step class on Tuesday mornings as I'll be working but at least I can still do Body Attack :) (although it will have to be at a much less vigorous intensity as I have a very low BP at the moment - I think it was 90/60). And also I can forget about losing fat/gaining muscle as I'm told pregnancy is not the time to be restricting calories or exercising with heavy weights (unless anyone knows different please tell me). So, I guess that will all have to wait till after and hopefully I'm not one of those women who puts on 30 kilos :0 that would be disastrous!!

I'm pleased with myself today. I got so much accomplished. I went to work No. 1, came home in time for a client session, managed to visit the accountant and he finished my tax return. The main thing was that I was offered a job. I went for an interview last week (my first one since starting to look for work) and whaddya know - I got it! Its nothing to do with personal training but something to do in the meantime as my other job is only two days a week at the moment. So this one will be three days a week. And I start on Monday! So, that was my day. The only thing I didnt do was any exercise - oh well there's always tomorrow.
I've also got some other news but I think I'll wait for more confirmation before I reveal it. Its also the reason why I havent been blogging as much lately. You'll have to wait a bit longer for that one. Maybe next week or the week after...

I just stumbled across my blog again! I'd almost forgotten I had one! NO, only kidding. I just havent been on the net as much recently. Dont know why as I've apparently got more time on my hands from not working evenings. Strange, but the time just flies by when you spend it with family instead of at work where it drags and drags.

Anyway, just got home from the gym where I did Body Attack and upper body weights. I've just had some natural yoghurt and an apple and I'm thinking of what to make for tonight's dinner. Something different I think....usually its just the same meals over and over again.

I forgot to mention I've been looking for a part-time job to do during the day maybe a couple days a week. Went to an interview on Friday so hopefully something good comes of that. I'm a bit limited as I still work at my brother's and train a client a couple sessions a week at home. That's the best, I put my dinner on to cook, she comes over, I train her in my garage gym and she leaves and my dinner is cooked!! No travel, no worrying about babysitters, nothing!! Yay, I love it. A couple other (ex-studio) people wanted to train here too but I had to limit it as I still have other work to do and they can only come at night. Kristin is really good. She knows that she has to stay inside during that time and not bother Mummy. I put on Nick Jnr and she does her own thing - she's great.

The other day, she was reciting the planets for me (I was actually quite surprised as I didnt know they taught that stuff at Kinder) and she starts "Mars, Earth, Jupiter, Uranus, Africa" I burst into uncontrollable laughter and almost had tears running down my face when she looked at me all proud. Ahh, kids!
