I have been very busy working and trying to get organised for the start of the school year with my baby starting kindy this year. I did not really cope with this very well and it may have involved a packet of chocolate biscuits to get me through.
I am enjoying work and am very lucky to have amazing friends who have helped me out with babysitting over the holidays. I think planning their care was harder then actually working. This is the joys of having parents (grandparents) who still work and family who live a long way away. You have the rely on your friends and I am so lucky to live in such a great community.
Working has been great as I have had to use my brain again. While I never thought I would work in a bank again and it is not my career of choice I must admit I am enjoying being out of the house. I will finish my training tomorrow which will mean that I will only be working as a casual. While that means an irregular income it also means I can spend more time with the kids and work when it fits in with the family.
As far as fitness, healthy eating & weight loss go well...........................next subject..................
No really to be honest I have completely lost my running/ fitness mojo. I could blame the hot weather and full time work but they are just excuses. One good thing about working it that I don't get bored and am not snacking all day. On the other side people buy yummy treats at work and it is VERY hard to resist!!!
I bought an eating and fitness plan online which is called Bikini Body Guide. Now whilst my plan is to wear a bikini comfortably at sometime before I am 40 I didn't buy the plan thinking that I would be running around in one within 12 weeks! I do love that it is about strength and toning as well as a bit of cardio. The plan was/is to do that 3 days a week -
Monday - Leg Day
Wednesday - Arms & Abs
Friday - Fullbody
Then Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday - Running/Riding
I really just need to get started!!! I have done a few of the workouts and they really do work!! I do have muscles under there somewhere.
I am still looking into doing my cert III & IV in fitness but I am trying to be realistic about the time that would take and the time I have available. I am giving up some of my volunteering work this year. I have finally realised that I can't do it all and something has to give.
So anyway that it where I am at. What are everyone else's plans for 2015?? I haven't set out specific goals for the year just yet I just want to get cranking and get stuck into it. I have 3 weddings in the next 12 months and my goal is to be looking fabulous at all of them. Especially at my brothers wedding.
