I went to a hens night on a boat in Perth. I'm not going to talk about the hens night because what happens on the boat stays on the boat. But what I will say it is was a great night with lots of laughs, dancing, food, drinks & a few firsts for me which I don't think I can talk about on here. The 4 girls who organised it did a fantastic job. It was great even though the boat was full of ladies who we beat in our grand final win 2 weeks ago and a few of them did try to throw me overboard at one point.
There was a bit of drama leading up the it though as we thought the weather was going to be cold and windy. So a shopping we went.......After looking around for a while I called on my style expert brother. (he's not so much an expert as he is honest) I found 2 dresses that I thought would be ok but I wasn't too sure if they were too tight or too short. After making a decision I sent a pic to my friend who was shopping for her outfit on the other side of Perth. She had just sent me a txt saying she had found something but one size was too small and the next one up was too big. Then she got my txt and it was the same dress!!! What did we do before mobile phones???
Nothing like a changeroom selfie. (Completely forgot to take one when we were all dressed up)
It got me thinking about scales v's measurements. I have been struggling a bit with the number on the scales at the moment. 1 step forward 2 steps back. I am reluctant to throw the scales out as I find they really help keep me on track. But I am going to start to focus on my measurements and clothes. A bit of a change in direction. I will still do my Wednesday Weigh In but I will also measure up each week.
This is a way to help keep me positive and motivated. I am loving the feeling of clothes getting looser and find that each time I am folding washing there is always something to add to the 4 garbage bags of clothes I have sitting waiting to pass onto my sister.
Will do measurements this Wednesday and compare them to my ones I took in January. Then will do them every week.
