The Road So Far

So I figured that  should update you lovely people on my progress so far.  And I am pleased to say that things are going pretty well.

Since I last filled you in, some big things occurred which threatened to upset the apple cart.  Sydney had huge storms – “thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightening” (sorry, couldn’t help myself, huge Queen fan).  There were trees down everywhere and we actually lost power for 6 days.  Needless to say, this did mess things up somewhat.  There was one day when we couldn’t leave the house at all due to the huge tree that came down across our driveway and the entire road and the live power lines down everywhere.  And the continuing storms meant that it was actually dangerous to be out on the roads, let alone exercising outdoors.  And of course, no electricity means no fridges and being very restricted with food and cooking.

I think the worst was the disruption to my sleeping patterns.  Once it got dark and cold, it was very easy just fall asleep very early and then wake up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep, especially when they started coming in to run chainsaws at 1am.  I was actually sitting on the steps at 1.30am watching the workmen in a cherry picker putting a power pole back up when I was unable to sleep.

One positive thing did happen however.   I realised that my gym had hot showers and so the very next morning packed myself off to the gym for a workout and a glorious hot 20 minute shower.  I have never been so excited to go the gym in my life.

Anyway, life returns to normal, and I have gone back to my new regime and I am pleased to say that I have lost almost 3 kilos so far! I feel much more motivated to keep it going as I am actually seeing some results. So onto another week, will be back to report soon, have a good one 🙂
