April Adventures Continued

When I left off I mentioned that I was making friends. In addition to spending time with friends, Sundays I have now being going to the club. Yes, I’ve started going to the raffles with my nan and pop. It’s been really good to have a day where I am with them because I can see how pop is and if he is having a good or bad day.

Of course this is my Sunday treat when I go. Can’t really complain with that right 🙂

So now to fully address my unhealthiness. I do feel a little ashamed for continuing saying I’m going to get healthy but then go back on my word. Hey, I never said I was perfect. It got to a point where my friend and I have stopped going to Zumba. This is because of work and the shifts we have during the week. My shifts are 9-5 whereas she has now been having shifts from 11-6 or 6-10. Not great for when you need to go to Zumba at 5.

I have also halted my yoga in the mornings. This halt is due to vigorous study and hectic preparation for workshops and mock interviews. I have to say, it was a good choice to halt my yoga because the extensive study has helped me to pass all of my assessments. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to get back into it.

I may have halted my yoga but I have been spending more time with this beautiful boy:

He has been my calm through all of the storms I have been facing. I mean he is just BEAUTIFUL!

Anyway this has been April for me and I’m super excited for May and all that may come.

Until next time xx

Feeling Good

I am almost finished my first 8 units in my course. Super excited as the course is set up to only give me (or anyone doing it) access to parts at a time. Almost at stage 2- another 8 units. One step closer each and everyday.

So I didn’t post yesterday because I had work and then a few minutes after, I had Zumba. Zumba was good though right at the end my ankle decided it needed a break. I pushed through because it was the last dance though when I got home I couldn’t walk. Whoops. Tell you what, missing that one week of Zumba really throws you out. My feet were wanting to do something entirely different from the actual dances, but I made it.

Yesterday was day three of me being strict and I have to be honest, there have been times I wanted chocolate or pizza (thanks to the smell of it in the shop down the road) but its like my body is internally saying no to me. its weird to say- believe me I know- but its like my body’s rhythm because I have tried, and failed, to do this before. Maybe its picking up some sort of memory from the last time.

Anyway, until next time xx

Better When You’re Dancing

So no Zumba tonight as both me and my friend worked late. Kind of sad because I was looking forward to it but I have decided to do some extra yoga on top of my morning and newly made bedtime routine.

Just for fun, I made up a dance. No idea why but I feel 10 times better when I’m dancing or having fun of any kind. I mean it sounds stupid to say when its the most common of common sense but for a long time I didn’t let lose and just dance. It feels good to say I have finally learnt to have fun like no one is watching.

Feeling the stretch already. This is my little break where I decided to post. I am only having 2 minute noodles tonight as Ben got injured today and doesn’t really feel like eating. He got bad stuff in his eyes so had to go to the doctor. The doctor had to scrap the stuff out and put some eye dropy thing in to see if his eye got scratched. Really not a pleasant day for him.

I won’t post about the menu tonight as everyone knows what noodles are. Plus they wouldn’t be classed as the most healthiest thing.

Until next time xx

Different Dance Moves

Tonight at Zumba was a bit different. We had a different instructor because the other girl had family business to attend. Wow was the whole night different.

The instructor tonight had different dance moves and different songs. Golly gosh it was hard to learn the new steps. Somehow though my friend and I managed. I noticed that the normal instructor seems to focus more on the core where as tonight’s lady tend to focus more on the legs and bottom area. I didn’t mind though, it just means more exercise is being done.

Once home I made chicken tacos. I wasn’t planning on cooking but I got home and nothing had been planned for dinner, I just though why not. Actually I have been thinking a lot about cooking and experimenting with food. A while ago I entertained the thought that I was a pretty good baker. In fact I use to bake choc chip cookies and muffins everyday….. not the healthiest thing to e baking when most of it has to do with chocolate. Hence why I stopped. Though, lately I have been thinking about food to take to work, to have for lunch when I’m at home studying or just when I have kids of my own, what kind of food I would give them.

I tend to do a lot of random thinking. Sometimes what I’m thinking about has really nothing to do with what I’m doing. Well, you can probably guess with the random posts I write.

Until next time xx

(Or until the next random thought or event 😛 )

*Happy Dance Inserted*

Ahhh so happy 🙂 I have completed yet another assessment. So keen to have it done, I feel like I’m doing a lot of work (even though I’m probably not) and I just seem to be getting it done. I give myself plenty of time too complete them too but I seem to get them finished well before the due that I’ve given myself. I say the date I gave myself because it’s an online flexible course, so it doesn’t interrupt if I do get called in for work.

Speaking of work, I have it again tomorrow. I feel weird saying I have work AGAIN when everyone works everyday. I’m just in the background chilling just waiting for the next time I go to work. I mean it’s not all bad, I do get to do a lot more study on the days I’m at home.

I have Zumba tonight, which I’m keen for. I mean it is probably the thing I look forward to in the week. The instructor was a bit tricky last week at Zumba. My friend and I were really confident that we knew all the moves to the dances and that last week happened. The instructor decided to play a few new songs which of course had their own dances. Ahhh it was horrible, but funny too. Fumbling around like we were in the dark.

Anyway until next time xx

What A Week!

I haven’t been posting this week because of how hectic it has been. I mean I have been run off my feet, in a good way of course.

On Monday, I had actually got my first day at work. It was so exciting that I jumped out of bed as soon as I got the call. Within possibly two minutes, I had gotten Ben to take me. It was amazing to be back. All the kids were excited to see me and couldn’t wait to tell me about the class and how things were done (even though I knew it was great to see their excited faces). I didn’t realized I missed work until Monday.

Tuesday I spent the day studying. My gosh I almost completed my first theory assignment. Though I had to stop because my eyes started going funny by the end of the day. I think I may have missed some stuff in the reading material because of my eyes. I mean could you really blame my eyes for missing stuff when they have been working hard since 6 in the morning.

I got the call again yesterday for work. Boy, was yesterday a busy day. As soon as I got to work I was flat out. One minute I was in one room on one end of the center, the next I was at the other end and all the rooms in between. In a way it was good because I could get to see all the kids from last year and even met some new ones. Not to mention met the new staff members. However, it meant that I was on my feet all day. Then at 2:30 my director gives me an early mark. I was not expecting that but it was nice to finish early even though I was expecting to stay till 4:30.

I didn’t have a lift home so I walked. Which was OK because it wasn’t too hot and I had adrenaline running through me that I didn’t even feel my feet ache. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized my feet felt as if they were about to drop off. Of course I couldn’t stop. I had to get ready for Zumba. Yes, yesterday felt good because it was full of exercise and I felt like I was making some sort of progress.

Today may only be Thursday but it has already been both busy and amazing at the same time. I had work again today and much like yesterday I was in one room and in the next. We did lots of running with the kids. We were teaching them jogging or at least the idea of jogging. It was good fun to join in and have races. Of course the kids won against me, partly because I let them and partly because kids have WAY more energy then me. Hopefully when I get more healthier I’ll have more energy and be able to have more running races with them.

Anyway, until next time xx

Excitement Plus

Yesterday I didn’t get time to post because it was so hectic. It was a super exciting day but it was crazy.

To start off with, I cleaned out and organised the kitchen cupboards. Then I made a fruit salad (which was really good because we usually don’t have much fruit in the house for some odd reason). That wasn’t SUPER exciting but it did start my day off a happy one. Next up was some dancing and some yoga. I pushed back the yoga yesterday because I wasn’t feeling too well when I woke up but luckily it didn’t last too long.

Next I finally heard back from work. Ok it wasn’t like a message about going back, it was a message about what days I’m available because you know they put me back to casual. Hey, it something and I’m really happy about it because it means that they might be needing me soon. Casual sucks sometimes.

Another exciting thing about yesterday, and this is really exciting for me, is that I am now (partially at least) enrolled to do a nutrition course at TAFE. I’m super keen to get started with that. It will not only help me but other people too and I’m so happy. I can’t stop telling Ben how excited I am, I think he may be getting a lil fed up with me.

Also, last night was my third week at Zumba. It was amazing as ever, plus I think I’m getting more of a grasp on it. I felt myself do more of the movements last night and my arms and legs have been a lil sore this morning. I’m taking that as a good sign though because it means I did more of a workout.

Until next time xx
