  1. I finished another two books. The first "I was told it would get easier" by Abbi Waxman was just a fluffy humorous book that I actually found quite enjoyable about a single mother and her 16yo daughter doing college tours. Was interesting as it was written from the point of view of both. As a mother with a 13yo I found the dynamic between the two interesting. The second book "When we were vikings" by Andrew David MacDonald I'm still not sure about. I found the book looking in the humor section of the library but whilst there were a few humorous parts the overall tone of the book was way t
  2. Well I can't believe this challenge is over - I start weeks on Mondays so I was thinking I still had today to go on this challenge. But I do want to do a wrap up. Well week 5 was a bust, but that's OK - I do believe the coat was worth it. Overall - How do I feel I did. Goal 1 - exercise. I think the first 4 weeks were really good - I had gotten into a good routing, there was exercise being done, It all fell apart in week 5, but I still feel ok about it. I feel like now the weather is warming up I can get more incidental exercise back in, but I do
  3. Thanks all, so here is the final product - I'm really happy with how it turned out.
  4. Well this week has not gone to plan. Sunday saw the start of the next round of my sewing competition and I chose a design that was a real stretch for me. That's a good thing, but it does mean everything else just got dropped in favour of sewing. Monday I spent the entire day sewing., and I do mean entire. I started at 7am and finished at about 10pm. I skipped lunche, J made dinner for the family. I sat down and ate with them for half an hour or so, then got back to it.....Tuesday was pretty much the same except I took an hour and half off in the morning to get my covid vaccination. L made
  5. Week 4 Day 6 Goal 1 Was supposed to lift today but ten went for a walk and ended up walking for 7.5 km so figured that was enough for one day. Goal 2: Food was ok but had Chinese for dinner plus cake plus 1.5 glasses of wine Goal 3: nope Week 4 Day 7 Well I got through to the next round of my sewing competition so today was focused entirely on figuring out what I am going to do for that. Based on how its going so far I don't think I'm going to be doing anything except sewing for the next 4-5 days at least. Goal 1
  6. Nice work on the lifting - weights going up is always good!
  7. Week 4 Day 5 Goal 1 Another day with plenty of incidental exercise today. J and I created a game involving a beach ball which is basically a cross betweensoccer, AFL, volleyball and anything else you can think of. Basically just a free for all - full contact of course. We had plenty of fun running around both at recess and again after school. Goal 2: Food was good - no snacking - lunch of Jambalaya, and dinner of pork burgers - I did make a cake however and have a slice for dessert, plus licked the beater - however since there was no other snacking there w
  8. Week 4 Day 4 Goal 1 Got plenty of incidental exercise today. J and I spent his lunch/recess time outside playing today. Threw around the footy, then the baseball, then the frisbee - Then I was buggered and told him he had to go back to school and give me a break. Then after school I managed to convince L to come out for a walk again - what's this twice in one week - It's a miracle! And finally J and I did a lifting session. Squats, bench press and barbell rows at 13kg (28.5lb) Goal 2: Food was better today - still not great but better. I s
  9. Well if you insist. Sorry they are all slightly blurry - He doesn't like bright lights and my camera doesn't do low light situations that well. But he certainly is adorable!
  10. Week 4 Day 2 Goal 1 Went out for another walk today. A shorter one today as I finally managed to get my 13yo daughter to come out with us - she's generally allergic to any sort of exercise, so I didn't want to scare her off. Goal 2: Food was OK until after dinner when I snacked on hot chocolate straight out of the jar (hangs head in shame) I just needed a chocolate fix. Goal 3: nope - this is not a good start Week 4 Day 3 Goal 1 nothing today. Will do lifting tomorrow. Goal 2: Food was OK today
  11. Yeah I used to be able to listen to music during the day, then we got a pet hedgehog who is nocturnal, and his cage is in the room where I spend most of my day so I don't want to blare music at him so I've stopped just having it on in the background. At least I've found I can move my little organ to the kitchen to play it without disturbing him. It's really a pretty crappy organ - its an old one my mum and dad bought back in the 80 or early 90s, so barely 4 octaves, no weighted keys or anything, but it's better than nothing.
  12. Week 4 Day 1 Goal 1 Went out for another walk today, then came home and did push presses and barbell rows at 13kg. Goal 2: Much better today. Made it through till 11.30 before eating. Had split pea soup and a single serve of crackers for lunch, banana and peanut butter for afternoon tea and curried chicken wraps for dinner. Only issue was a few chocolates after dinner but today was better. Goal 3: nope. Need to get on this tomorrow.
  13. Week 3 Days 7 Goal 1 No lifting today, but I did get outside and go for a walk which felt so good so I count that as a win Goal 2: Still no good - lots of crackers and chips. Good dinner of Sn Chow Bow, but then lots of chocolate after dinner Goal 3: nope. I had time today but procrastinated instead. Week 3 Overview Goal 1 5 days of lifting and one with a walk. I'm happy with that! Goal 2: I think I can say I fail on this this week - I'm noticing a pattern that when I break Intermittent fastin
  14. Looking good - keep up the good work in Week 4
