  • we're on tank water so the showers will always be better than mine. the only bonus with home is no chlorine on my hair or skin. still havent made a group fitness class. too many small children and work. but i am having a bit of a love affair with the cross trainer.

    • I don't mind the cross trainer but I really hate the other one that just goes along level - like those travelators in airports? It literally gives me motion sickness. The rowing machine is the most fun for me.

      Today was a kid-free day for us so my dh decided to take me out for lunch. First we drove to the other side of town so we could walk 4k to the eatery, have our burger and walk the 4k back again.

      The burger was excellent - a huge beef pattie, two pieces of bacon, beetroot relish and few salady bits and pieces. I brought the enormous bun home for the chickens.

      But the chips were a revelation. They were very nicely cooked, golden and a good texture, but I could TASTE the canola (or whatever) oil on them. It was a really strange taste, and no longer actually pleasant to me. Fortunately the burger was so filling I wasn't relying on them to fill me up, but I think it's a little bit sad that some former treats just aren't any more.

      • Tried a beginners pilates video today. Can I keep up the 30day programme? Watch this space.

        Encouraging dd to work on her splits, took a "before pic" - it doesn't look promising but I am ever the optimist.

          • Power class today for the first time in three weeks, oh how I have missed it and how I enjoyed it. The lady next to me was using even more weight on her bar than I do, that has got me motivated! I did the class in a fasted state and didn't eat till about 3pm as I was locked out of the house!! Really it wasn't hard to do and I might try it again tomorrow.

            My measurements (if not my weight) have been creeping up a bit. I bought a new skirt today and it's super tight, so now I can't afford to go up any more. Another good incentive I hope.

            • Collecting my raw milk today was especially fun - milking was over and the cows were back in the paddock, I had to walk right through the middle of the herd, and past an electric fence, to get to the cowshed.

              L: Chicken and bacon quiche with veges and cheese (HUGE).
              S: Piece of dark choc.
              D: Sweet and sour pork and kumara, green peas. Grapefruit juice.
              For supper a piece of my Mum's coconut and peach slice.

                You just pegged my sarcasm meter, I think..... lol.... Walking close to an electric fence beside an animal that can push you around like a rag doll doesn't sound like a fun time to me! Having been "bitten" a number of times by my electric fence, I can tell you a "fun" time it is not!

                • Haha, the animals had no intentions of pushing me around like a rag doll, they just moved out of my way as I passed through the middle, kind of like the parting of the Red Sea! The fence was one of those that you have to grasp the handle and unlink it from the other fence without touching the wire and then relink so as not to let the cows out I was really out of place being dressed in skirt and sandals (again) but it was definitely fun. Then do it all in reverse carrying 6litres of milk.

                  • Today someone mistook me for my daughter - from a distance, admittedly. I should be flattered as she is gorgeous (if I say so myself). But evidently I still haven't managed to put a look together for myself which is stylish enough without being "girlish". Better try again.


                    L: Two eggs, bacon, roast potato, banana.
                    Snacks: raisins and chocolate, brazil nuts.
                    D: Beef satay, rice and broccoli - fresh from my very own garden!! Grapefruit juice - ditto.

                      just watch the dairy bulls LOL they are almost always aggro as. i miss raw milk but i cant be stuffed driving all over town to get it. i made potato salad tonight with genuine new potatoes. jersey bennes and garlic scaups from my garden instead of chives. i didnt even get to eat any as the kids ate it all before i realised it was gone.

                      • Oh no, I love new potatoes, I hope you have some more.

                        • we have some left and there are more in the shops. $11/kg tho. eeek!! i prefer them boiled and eaten with a bit of butter and salt and pepper to stuffed up in potato salad myself which was why i wasnt quick enough to get any.

                          Today someone mistook me for my daughter - from a distance, admittedly. I should be flattered as she is gorgeous (if I say so myself).
                          when my oldest was a teen, i just happened to be outside in one of her long sleeve tshirts getting something out of my car. some teen boy wandered past and yelled hey at who he thought was her. this was before the rise of the cougar LOL the poor boy nearly died when he realised it was me and i laughed at him.
