Im so sorry at how slack Ive been lately, Ive ad quite alot going on in my life atm. Im well and truly past the 100 day mark with my smoking now, about 112 I think and I have started a clean eating plan as of yesterday and started back into my walking again as well. I need to start getting serious about losing these extra tyres that have settled on my mid section. Im going to start a side blog on this one of my weight loss journey if anyone is interested.
So the eating plan is Tumehe Rongonui http://www.tumehe.com/ which here you’ll find his website. He has designed all kind of fat burning meal plans for all different weights and so far so good.
All my babies are mauiui (sick) too, they have been since last week and they’re definitely over it for sure! I took them all to the doctor yesterday only to be told to keep dosing them up with panadol, nurofen Etc but Im on like my 3rd bottle of that plus 2nd bottle of Irish Moss cough mixture and none of thats helping.
Makes me feel like a failure
Did I mention that I went to Kalgoorlie last Friday to have a GTT (Glucose Tolerant Test) done viz blood been drawn? I don’t think I did aye, anyways yeah I went to Kal to have that done and to also support my Taimana who made it into the interschool cross country. I had to have bloods drawn then drink a sweet sugary drink wait an hour have more bloods drawn then wait 2 hours before having the last set of bloods drawn to determine my glocose levels.
Today I had to go to the doctor to have iron injected into my bumcheek because prior to these test I had to have others done due to feeling under normality and turned out that i am iron and vitamin D deficient and I got the results back for the GTT test which turns out that I’m not diabetic but if I don’t start looking after myself, diet and exercise wise then my health could go downhill real fast. Sadface.
Last week when I went to have iron injected I asked the doctor about a weightloss pills and he prescribed me Duromine. I’m just waiting for Aarons payday before I can get it. I know its not the ideal way to go about losing weight but ever since I gave up smoking I’ve plumerted real fast around the tummy its so gross and I feel gross too, no energy to do nothing outside the ordinary so once I get onto these and get some energy levels back then I’ll chuck em and start doing it properly. I promise.
I had a couple hours work last night with Jackie, I made her porkstrips, mash and veg for tea, she told me that she mostly eats pork because its the only meat she doesn’t choke on.
So I turned up yesterday afternoon and she already had the meat thawed out, her steamed indivual pack of vegs in the microwave ready to be nuked and I just had to peel spuds and put meat in the oven, fed her and while I cleaned her kitchen she got herself into the shower, washed herself then gave me a yell when she needed assisting with her back, armpits and teeth, helped her to dress, made her a coffee and then come home. Jackie really is quite independant, just restricted thats all and I really enjoy getting to know her better, her Father is Aarons suoervisor and they’re distant whanau from back home in Turangi so we’re kinda been close to their whanau for a few years now. Theres a trust thing going on which makes me feel much more comfortable.
It’s my first day caring for Jackie today, I started at 9:00 this morning, come over to make her brekkie then got stick I to spring cleaning her flat, she’s not as dependant as I first thought she was, she really surprised me. I took her back to my house for lunch today with my family, Aaron made us sausages in the BBQ it was real cool.
The kids and I attended our 2nd meeting down at the Kingdom Hall together today, my boys get a bit wriggly after an hour of sitting there being quiet but for a new and different environment for them they are awesome, I’m so proud of them and how they kept quiet today, next Sunday Aaron is on days off so I’ll give the boys the day off attending the meeting and just take my Taimana with me, she enjoys learning more about Jehovah as much as I do. This afternoon however we had family photos, so after our meeting which finished at 11:30ish we come home and I made some sandwiches for lunch, woke Aaron up (coz he’s on nights) and get to the other side of our big town, nah not really by 1:20pm. One of my friends has been raising money to go towards her total hip replacement so another friend of ours offered up her time to do family/kids portraits for a cheap price that goes towards her fundraising. $20 for 10 shots but she does wayyyy more than 10 and the editing she does from what I’ve seen are amazing, she’s not an accredited photographer but she loves it and it shows in her work. Can’t wait to see them. It’s been a busy day for me today so here I am still awake at blinkin 10pm…geez
