    no I don't think that the dress is mean't to be see through - but just sometimes NZ merino can be so thin, that it just is !!!!!!!!
    A wee slip will be worth its weight in gold - me thinks
    The personal trainer......................where do I start.....................long story short Annie - I am so unmotivated that I thought if I could have someone kick my butt - it just might get me started again. I also need someone to show me how to do stuff. I am not the sharpest tool in the shed !!!!!!

      I hope you come back from America all fired up with motivation and then your trainer can help direct it. Weight training can be a real secret weapon when it comes to losing fat and getting in shape.

        Those are severely nice boots. Oh. My. Goodness.

        But then, the next time I buy spendies shoes/boots I've promised myself they will be Fluevogs. Like these or these.

        A girl can dream.
        I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

          Note btw i dont have a personal trainer due to lack of motivation on my behalf as motivation is never really an issue here. direction can be a serious problem at times. having someone to spot you is also very handy. i do occasionally like to pretend i am famous and swan around and have someone else load and unload all my bars LOL but only very occasionally. we did have one epic day when i was bench pulling and we loaded a side of the bar each. i just couldnt pull the bar straight. since it was at the time i had my rotator cuff dramas, i very almost had a temper tantrum and gave up till i noticed he'd put a 5kg plate on one side ( the sadist ) and i'd only put a 2.5kg plate on my side LOL we change it up every week and we add stuff in, or take stuff out depending on my current injuries. or what area i want to focus on. we do strength exercises, we do prehab exercises, funky little circuits, things become good ideas based on what we are doing right now and so on. we bounce alot of ideas off each other too which formulate into more good plans. we do something different every time which means i never get bored or get used to anything. plus what we do works, way better than all the gym programs i have ever had in all my years of gyming it. which have been many. re: someone showing you how to do stuff. any gym should have people there who can do that. most gyms do you a free program every 6 weeks but IME i have found a huge variance in the quality of these.

                  I noticed You would have to be one totally motivated person. When you say that what you do "works" in what way do you mean? What are you trying to achieve, in particular?

                  I ask, because I was asked about this today and while I realise it's time to do something new after 12 months (or maybe even a couple more) doing practically the same thing I really am not sure what. I'm fit enough for tramping and anything else that crops up (paddleboarding, tennis - things I never expected to be trying), and have become a shape I'm pretty happy with. The idea of getting stronger does hold some appeal, but I'm not really sure if there's any point.

                    Actually, Ilike those Fluevogs. That surprises me. There's some even I'd wear.

                    Sounds like you're starting to have fun, Annie, go for it.

                      it does sound like you are starting to have fun Annie - and the point of strength - IMO - at our age is - it's great for our bones. Strong bones are a wonderful thing to have. Strong bones are healthy !!!!!!

                        Starting to wonder why I ever thought driving a car somewhere was a good use of my time.

                        Sure, today's walk to town took almost an hour, but there you go - transport and exercise in one hit. What's not to like?

                          I seem to get most interested in gardening when autumn arrives. So today, got out there and moved some compost around. I was having a great time shifting it from A to B when it started to rain. Carried on in the wet having quite a bit of fun. It's a pity that once I came in and cleaned up I could not bring myself to head out again because there is still a lot of work waiting for me. But the rain is GREAT.

                          Stewed some more feijoas and gave away another bagful.

                          Made a pumpkin soup (my one and only pumpkin) which also included fresh parsley, a homegrown leek and homemade chicken stock. So, very self sufficient and primal.

                          B (I LOVE breakfast): Fried bacon, apple and mushrooms, two eggs and some avocado (thanks to PP for inspiring this addition).
                          L: Chicken, lots of chicken, and 1/4 avocado. Feijoas.
                          D: Pumpkin and leek soup, softserve boysenberry cream.

                          Snacks were cheese and chocolate and - naturally - feijoas. Probably too many.

                            It's spring here, that's when I get interested in gardening. We have tons of dandelions and with all the talk on the forum about them tomorrow I hope to dig up several and try some tea made from the roots. Dick just mowed the front yard, so I'll be digging in the back yard.

                            Cheese snacks are becoming a favorite of mine. I've been finding some speciality cheese that are fantastic.

                              Dandelion root, now that's getting primal indeed. Have you tried it yet? Would you do it again?

                              B: Two eggs, fried leek and mushrooms.
                              L: Pumpkin soup, banana.
                              S: Apple and cheese slices with feijoa chutney, celery with peanut butter, a feijoa (of course)
                              D: Two chicken thighs, kumara, cauliflower.

                              No exercise to speak of.

                                Well I managed to put a primal meal on the table again tonight, but when my dh asked what it was I was completely stumped for a name.

                                Briefly, I suppose it could be called meat and vegetable stirfry. I started with a very small quantity of spicy mince, and some leftover rice. Padded out with pumpkin, garlic, cumin, leek, cabbage, some peanuts, some stock of some description from the freezer, and the last of the cream in the fridge. It didn't look too attractive but it was tasty enough.

                                Then I decided to make a small batch of truffles for afters. I threw into the blender some dates, coconut, nuts, butter, chocolate drops and vanilla and pushed the button. It kind of mushed it but no way did I have a truffle mixture. Thinking more liquid might be needed I added some stewed feijoas and applesauce. Still the blended couldn't cope. In the end I put the mess in a bowl and warmed it in the microwave. Once again, I was completely stumped when my dh asked what it was. It kind of looked like porridge and we ate it as a hot pudding. It was very yummy but a bit too sweet for me.

                                Not hungry now, so that's the main thing. Breakfast and lunch were both the same - a kumara hashbrown and fried egg.
