This and that

Once again it's Saturday and I'm up early while the rest of the family get to stay snuggled up in their beds. On the one hand, I'd love to have the chance to sleep a bit longer, and not have to get up and go out into the freezing cold morning to train clients. On the other, I really enjoy this quiet time - I actually get up earlier than I need to so I don't have to rush around madly. Then I sit and check emails and blog updates while I eat my oats.

It's so silent that sometimes I can hear my own heart beating.


My week's gone really well - training all completed as planned, nutrition right on track and although there's still been no whoosh, there has been a small steady daily decrease on the scales.

More importantly, there are other signs that my get-lean mission is succeeding: pants a bit looser, some visible changes in the mirror, and the other night Bike Boy snuggled up to me in bed, put his arms around my waist and said "you feel leaner". So yay for that!

I also played my treat meal card last night and had pizza with the family. There was a bottle of Wirra Wirra Church Block cab-sav/shiraz/merlot opened, but I was satisfied with a sniff, a swirl and a tiny sip from Bike Boy's glass. Treat meal and all, I still came in within my calorie limit.

I was trying to remember the last time I had pizza. I think it may have been when we moved house, so that's six months ago. Huh.


I'll leave you with a couple of quotes I'm loving at the moment:

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

I love Saturday mornings too Kek, I get up and just chill, no lunches to make, no kids to get ready for school, time to browse the net and blogs.
All before I get ready and go jump around like crazy at Bodyattack!! :)

Have a great weekend

Oh I like those quotes!

Pizza is a regular on my menu only I make fake ones on mountain bread wraps topped with prawns, ham, cherry tomatoes, capsicum, eggplant, broccoli, onion, mushies, baby spinach and a bit of cheese baked in the oven - yummy!

That reminds me.
