    i have felt very stressed since christmas/new year. I think that bug I had just before christmas knocked me around... I am still ahemming a lot with the frog in my throat which is bloody annoying... and of course it doesnt make me feel like exercising particularly. yes yes, another excuse.

    anyway, this is my last week at my old job - in fact tomorrow is my last day. and leaving a job is stressful especially if you have a reasonable degree of conscientiousness which I do. I'm trying to leave everything in order and impart all the knowledge that is in my head. aaagghhh. and of course I'm training a temp that has been brought in to do my job and that has its own frustrations. But at the end of the day tomorrow I will have done what I can and then its all over rover.

    had a little pimple looking thing cut out of my hand which turned out to be a basal cell carcinoma so pleased I got that seen to...although I know they're not anything to worry about particularly. in other medical news, i had an ultrasound on my shoulder and there are no tears so i guess it is just frozen shoulder and i will have to deal with it for however long it takes to unthaw. fuck it. and I had a mammogram and that was fine. I put off my cervical smear, I thought those 3 things in one day was enough!!!

    the fireman and i are off to taupo on friday and then down to the chateau for a wedding on the saturday so that's almost an additional stressor at the mo knowing I have to go away for the weekend before I start my new job. however i am REALLY looking forward to the wedding of my cousin (who I am really close to) to her man of 3 years (they are both 50). I am extremely happy for her...

    last weekend the fireman and I went to napier for the weekend, I managed to pick up some super cheap flights a couple of days before... the deciding factor to go was when i checked the weather forecast and saw little suns on the map for the whole weekend. auckland has had the shittiest weather and i really just felt like i wanted to see sun. we had a lovely time, visited lots of vineyards, ate yummy food and had lots of sex TMI??? i had garlic bread twice...naughty but I did enjoy it. But yes I pay for it in terms of my skin looks crappy, I get quite windy, bowel movements arent quite as clean... you know what i mean. so have been trying to eat better this week which for the most part has been working.

    anyway thats about all for now, I do hope to use the kettleball, i just need to get into a rhythm of doing it I think.

    I will try and catch up on everyone's journals as soon as I can. Hope there havent been any dramas.

    Where are you?
    How's your new job?

    I pressed the Death Triangle on your spammer.

    i'm so slack about my journal at the mo. to be honest, I'm about as far away from primal as possible some days so i feel a bit fraudulent being here at all. I try to be good, but I have a lot of slips. my waistline is increasing. boo.

    so i'm into my 2nd week of new job. it is going to be really interesting... at this stage it's all very new and I dont really know much at all, but I'm really a data analyst in this role, so it will all become clear once I start analysing Nice people, great organisation, global company so have good policies and procedures. and it is really nice to get to today which would normally be payday and know that i dont have to do it! hmmm however on the flip side, it is my old pay day today but not mine... i've moved to a monthly pay rather than fortnightly and I've got a long time to wait until the 20th of the month.

    the fireman is currently snoring in the next bedroom... seriously I sometimes wonder how I will cope being away with him for a month when we go to europe in september. trying to plan our trip, which way to fly there and back is causing all the issues at the mo.

    it is 4.30 am and of course i cant sleep. too many wines again. it was supposedd to be an alcohol free night last night, but I succumbed to temptation. bloody hopeless. I will aim for an AF day tomorrow. we had a yummy dinner tonight, pork medallions in a creamy tomatoey sagey sort of sauce, it was really flavoursome.... with roasted pumpkin with sage butter.

    not a lot else to report. no exercise happening. my shoulder is bloody painful at the mo, getting my clothes off at night is starting to prove difficult and is causing me grief. I really dont know if I should see specialist and get a cortisone shot in it or not.... will it just come right if I leave it. grrrr

    sale of my mothers house should settle on friday... bloody well hope so, was supposed to settle last friday but there was a miscommunication between lawyers. tsk.

    Nice to see you back .

    New job sounds good, I'm guessing there will be less time available for forum browsing on the job with this one?? . Sucks that the shoulder is still giving you so much grief. I'd have it looked at again, though you didn't seem to really like the cortisone shots before, maybe they can recommend some other treatment?

    As for food and drink, well, look at it each day at a time, and work at making the best choices most of the time. That could work better for you than aiming for full on perfection, and beating yourself up for choosing otherwise here and there. Bring the 60/40 (or 50/50 or whatever it has been lately) back closer to the 80/20 for now.

    Sending positive vibes for the finalization of the house sale.

    I agree with Greensprout, a day at a time, try for 60:40 instead of aiming for 100% and feeling like you failed if you don't meet it.

    Hey Suse!

    Glad to hear you're enjoying the new job. Don't hide away just because you're not being primal - we don't read your journal to judge what you're eating and drinking, we just wanna see how you are.

    Good luck on the settlement - about bloody time eh?

    ok my friends, I'm here and it is time for an update. Grab a coffee!

    So I think I've been at the new job for 2 months now. I'm starting to settle in and feel more comfortable. It's good, interesting. My god, I used to be a payroll manager and knew people got some big salaries but now I realise there are so many on really BIG salaries. fascinating. Anyway clearly I am not one of them.

    Yes we are off to europe in september. We are going to England for a wedding and then we will do a week in southern france (around Valbonne... we've just booked a gorgeous villa) and sort of tiki tour around that whole area, do a day trip to monaco, check out nice, st tropez, antibes, cannes, and lots of lovely little provencal villages and of course drink wine. After the week in southern france, we are going to paris for 4 nights (with a day trip to Reims for a lot of champagne tasting i hope) and then catch the eurostar back to london where we will stay at a super flash hotel and then fly to Rarotonga for 3 nights rest and relaxation on the way home! Sounds great doesnt it. I'm really looking forward to it more and more as we get bits booked and organised. We are actually upgrading with our airpoints coming back so will be in premium economy london to LA and then business class LA to rarotonga... which I'm really pleased about as it is going to be a really long day that one.. we literally stop off in LA for 3 hours before the raro leg. ooooh I'll be a nasty wreck I think when we get to raro but I'll survive if the sun is shining and I can lie by the pool all day!!!

    in terms of my little primal adventure, hmmmm I confess I am totally off the wagon in everything at the moment, or at least that is how it feels. A lot of bread creep, and I have been eating chocolate and/or sweet stuff every day at work in the afternoon - although having said that I turned down bread today at lunch and I didnt eat any sweet stuff this afternoon. I think I probably just need it to keep the brain in gear. Also, i am biting my nails again... right down to the quick, ouch painful but I just dont seem to be able to stop. grrr.

    I honestly cant think of what else I've been up to lately. oh yes, I have become a british citizen so that I can get a brit passport for my holiday... thanks mum for being born in England. I'm off to sydney to catch up with a girlfriend for easter and then 2 weeks later I am going to Brisbane to catch up with the fireman who is going over for a week to see his parents, so I will just do the weekend.

    my mum's house did settle finally so that is that little saga over with thankfully.

    I'm still a booze hag but have noticed that we havent been buying as much lately so perhaps I'm easing up a little. Just had 2 alcohol free days which was needed I think. The fireman is going in for a little op tomorrow to check out his nasal passages and see if they can find out where the snoring is coming from, so we decided we would just have a few quiet days not drinking.

    My fur babies are still adorable and I love them to bits. still naughty, I think Leo might be going deaf actually. either that or he really does have selected hearing.

    ok well I think that's all for now. sorry i've been gone so long, but nights lately have been taken up with researching the trip etc.

    I'm going to try and get back to being primal (famous last words)
    PS you know that kettle ball... relegated to the garage... havent used it bloody hopeless!!!
