I’m in shock!

This post was meant to be about the munchkin and his new bed but that didn’t happen as when my dad was assembling it he noticed a few marks and decided that was not good enough and now I am waiting on a replacement base!  He is a perfectionist to say the least as I would not have noticed them at all! 

Instead I am going to write about the shock I received this morning when I tenderly stepped on the scales.  To my shock and surprise I was the lightest I can ever remember weighing in my life, although I am sure after VCE I was lighter but can’t remember that far back.  I was so excited as I am now officially under a multiple of 10 and feel really excited.  I don’t feel I am as light as I was pre pregnancy but the scales are telling me a different story so I am going to embrace it and keep on trying to lose another  4 kilos which would place me at a weight I have been trying to attain for such a long time.  My body shape is nowhere near what it was before I had the munchkin as I have a flabby tummy and my thighs are bigger but the weight isn’t there….  Strange really… 

This week I was going to start a running group and after this morning I definitely am as this is the motivation I need to kick start my flabby butt into gear, plus I am running the 14km course for Run 4 the Kids in April.   I am surprised by the number I saw but hey I will take it and run with it – literally!  Fingers crossed I will soon reach my ‘goal’ weight.

Has anyone else been surprised by the number on the scales?


2012 the countdown has begun….

I have not written on my blog for such a long time and I really don’t have any reason as to why not except that life seems to have gotten in the way.  Since I last wrote I have started a new job which mind you is only 2 days a week but hey I do have a 2 year old to entertain on the other days of the week and he seems to be taking up more and more of my time these days. He is no longer my baby as tomorrow night he will be sleeping in a ‘big boy’s bed’ as he has learnt how to climb out of the cot and get back in as well as destroying his room in the process.  I know this is only going to be made easier as a bed has no rails but I’m hoping it may settle him down.  I know wishful thinking on my part but a girl can dream. P.S his will not be pink like the image below!!

He also has head lice at the moment and do you think I can stop scratching my hair!  I found out that his half siblings have had it for the past 2 weeks but my ex decided to not inform me or even treat our son so I have had the lovely task of running/pulling the comb through his hair.  Not a nice job for any parent.  As you can see my ex and I are still having issues and there are so many more I could mention but figure I won’t bore you.

New jobs are great as you get to meet new people and have new experiences that you may not have had if you didn’t have the change.  I love learning new computer systems and seem to be adept at picking them up on the first day – which impresses the new manager no end!  I have to drive to this one which is a nice change and I get to listen to the radio in the car and have the munchkin in the back seat talking away to me as well.  I love the radio in the morning but prefer an iPod at night, not that my car has this capability.  Munchkin settled in well to his new Family Day Care last week, even pushing me out the door saying “work” and had a 2.5 hour sleep in the middle of the day – I was very pleased with that as thought he might rebel and not sleep.

I have decided that 2012 has to be better than the last couple so all I have to say is “look out Melbourne!”  I will also try and blog on a more consistent basis so I get a few followers as well.
