Add a dab of lavender to milk; leave town with an orange, and pretend you're laughing at it. - Black Books

Well, I'm been such a good girl when it comes to TRACKING so far this week!
Every single thing has been entered.  I've cut down on my fruit to only 2 serves a day. I'm having a tub of WW fruit in my yogurt and then I'm chopping down on a Jazz apple on the drive home from work. Oh my god those Jazz apples are so yummy! So sweet & crunchy!
I've been really diligent with my walking too. My morning walk along the waterfront is just so very lovely! It's really crisp and cold but out of the wind so the sun is really warm. BLISS.
As I walk I try to focus on absorbing the warm sun into my face.
I walk for 15 minutes in the morning & 15 minutes at lunch. I know that isn't much but (as my Mum says) it's better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick.
The fresh air and sun is REALLY doing me good and I really look forward to it!
I try to greet my fellow walkers with a bouncy "Morning!" but so far I am just met with suspicious raised eyebrows. The Newstead Elite. Well la-da-flucking-dar. I will not give in!
Last night when I got home I also got on the clothes rack (exercise bike) and cycled 30 minutes while watching Ellen.
6 activity points for the day!
Saturday I went & got my hair done (note: I walked to & from the salon which took an hour 6 activity points Thank YOU) & because of the upcoming IVF I went for an Ala Naturale look.
Apparently bleaching the crap out of your scalp & pouring tear inducing chemicals over your locks is not a good thing to do while trying or having a baby. For the life of me I couldn't really remember what my 'natural' hair colour actually is. I AM a blonde and was snowy white when I was little bandy legged thing.
Studying my regrowth, my hairdresser determined that I am Beige Blonde.
I must admit that I have now gotten used to this dramatic change to a very 'normal' looking hair colour. I was feeling a wee bit dowdy but once I quickly ran home & set my hair and put on some red lippie I was feeling alright again.
Saturday night I was supposed to go to a fancy dress party next door but I was feeling really flat, depressed and mega-tired and just wasn't up to being all fun & happy. I had a big sleep but then woke up around 8 and set about watching 5 episodes of a BBC doco called "Extraordinary People".
The weather on Sunday was GORGEOUS and so TBF & I decided to get out of the house. We had to find an ugly jumper for our UGLY SWEATER BBQ we are having this weekend.
We hit Paddington , dodged the hipsters & finally found a beautiful piece of hideous knitwear that would do the trick very noicely. We were STARVING & TBF suggested we go get a nice bowl of ramen noodle soup at Sunnybank. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Japanese food so I immediately agreed.
Unfortunately, I tend to have a dodgy OFF button when it comes to Japanese food & when I saw gyoza on the menu I started drooling! It wasn't until afterwards when I was entering the points into my app that I realised that 6 pieces of gyoza is 24 POINTS!!! Holy bloody hell!
Luckily, because of my awesome tracking I actually had the weekly points to cover it..... just.
I also had 2 little Japanese hot cake things that are super yummy. Yes I tracked them.
So it is now Tuesday & I don't have any weekly points left but that's ok. I feel like I am still in control.

I've also switched my breakkie from having a Choc Banana Blueberry Kale Smoothie to having an Omelet 4 POINTS
2 organic eggs
1 organic egg white
splash of Zymil low fat milk
1/2 cup mushrooms
a couple of cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup of fresh parsley & red onion blended
Really yummy & very filling.

Style comes in all shapes & sizes. Therefore, the bigger you are, the more style you have

  1. Oh I am so with you about the Jazz apples, totally delish. Funny you say that about the good mornings. I live in a tiny little town that everyone says good morning and wants to stop and chat, not now peeps I'm running against the clock I have to say. Heck we even do the one finger up on the steering wheel country wave to cars! Such a friendly bunch. Oh that one finger is a friendly one, not the bird, just so you know!!
