Back To The Real World

So here I am, home in Sydney again.  Despite my car issues, I had a great time in Byron Bay, sun sand and sea and as a bona fide member of the Hyundai Get Active Program, plenty of exercise.  For those who don’t understand the Hyundai Get Active Program, it goes something like this –

  1. drive car to Byron Bay
  2. take car to beach
  3. clutch gives up
  4. walk back into town and then back to car and tow truck
  5. car gets towed to mechanic
  6. spend week walking all over Byron Bay

I believe that VW Combi vans have had a similar exercise program in place for years 🙂

All joking aside, all that walking to beaches and shops meant that when I got home, for the first holiday ever, my weight dropped a couple of hundred grams.  So not having the car was a slight nuisance as far as grocery shopping went and restricting as far as being able to take longer trips, but the outcome was positive.  I even got to have lunch in Nimbin on my last day after all.

So today, school returns for the teachers.  As a casual, this does not affect me.  I now have to wait for the work to start.  I have been doing some labouring work and have applied for a couple of jobs and submitted my CV to all the schools, so I am set to go…….I really hate waiting.

The current round of 12WBT ends this week and the new round starts on Monday, so sometime this week I will have to do my fitness tests, measurement and the dreaded before bikini photo.  I kind of opted out of the photo last time, but at the moment I am rocking my Byron Bay tan…may as well take advantage of it 🙂
