Can I too?

I wanna be one of those hot mums that I look at and think 'Mutter, mutter, mutter (Pa Bear styles) bitch, mutter, mutter, mutter, die!!!' LOL I walked down to the shops to pick up Chris' ventolin, it started absolutely pissing down when I was halfway there. So after a quick stop to put the rain cover over Caelan's buggy the three of us headed off again (me, the dog and baby). Went to the doctor and pharmacy and left with ventolin in hand. Mission accomplished. We headed home and there was this sexy thing in her tight size negative-god-knows-what jeans pushing her buggy up the hill, waving her awesome butt infront of me. It was raining and she was trying to maneouvre her buggy with an umbrella, all the while managing to look gorgeous. Of course a man appeared out of nowhere eager to help miss awesome butt to her car by carrying her bag and holding the umbrella over her and her baby. There I was drenched and looking incredibly manky with two wet bands across my top - one for the ginormous boobs and one for the belly! Those are the bits that stick out and got wet whilst also creating shelter for the other areas. I wanted to kick her over. LOL Soooo here I sit with wet hair dripping down my back all the more motivated to stay on this eat-well-kill-oneself-with-exercise thing I'm doing. Can I be one of those hot mums too, please? Jingos, I'll just be happy if I can be what I was before thanks.

Well I'd better go tend to the hair and put some dry socks on before my feet rott!

Ze torture pays off!

It's been three weeks of this 10 week challenge and I had my first weigh-in and measure AND... *drumroll* I've lost 3kg and many centimetres off everywhere. Hurrah!! Nowhere near pre-pregnancy, but hell, it's a step in the right direction huh?

Pushing yourself

This is good to do right? Right. But there are always limits. Some would say that it's good to push yourself beyond your limits. Some would say that if you do that you will end up vomiting infront of 22 people at 6:30 in the morning. Ok nobody would say that - unless that somebody you asked was me! That's what I did yesterday morning. It was horrible and talk about embarrassing!

I've just started a 10 Week Ultimate Body-Sculpting Challenge and yesterday was the first day - this involves torturous forms of intense exercise with your team of 22 every morning from 5:45am to 7am. I pushed myself well beyond my own limits which ended in much dizziness and vomit exploding from my mouth without warning. I clapped my hands around my mouth in an attempt to hold it all in, but no this doesn't work, it all sprayed out from between my fingers in different directions. It was much like putting your finger over a hose and watching it cover every thing in every direction in spray! Lordy, lordy, lordy did I feel ill, and foolish. My trainer had told me heaps throughout the workout to slow down and not go as hard, let my body get used to training again without killing it - I didn't listen so I spewed. Nice one.

So today was weights (it's alternate cardio and weights days) and I was determined not to hurl infront of all. I decided that I would ease back into it, I can't push myself like I used to, I've had a baby and haven't been doing this shit for ages (lets be completely honest I haven't been doing ANY shit for ages!) - so take it easy was the call. Did I do this? Well... ah... kinda. I probably wont be able to carry my baby tomorrow as I'll be so sore, I'll have to drag him around the house by his feet. The stairs will be a problem but I think we'll be fine! LOL I didn't take it easy and wow am I sore.

A sunset walk around the Panmure Basin

Such sights to see! It started off with a naughty cat trying to break into the bird santuary - he didn't give a stuff that he'd be caught on camera, we could nearly hear his chant "Must catch birds. Must catch birds. Must catch birds." Alas, someone had thought this might happen and after a pretty damned determined effort he left with an empty belly and obvious disappointment.

Then there was the leaping fish - I shit you not! I'd just taken off the 300mm lense and was packing it away when Chris said "LOOK! A flying fish!!!". I couldn't believe my eyes. There it was... a fish leaping through the air - for ages!!! I'd never seen this before in my life and was super duper excited. LOL Chris was more amused at me than the leaping fish. I was soooo bummed that I'd just changed lenses and thought it bloody typical! But change back I did. We waited. No leaping fish. Waited. Waited. Got sick of waiting and decided to call them "Come on fishy!" at the top of my lungs. LO AND BEHOLD it leapt out of the water at my call. Of course I was looking through the lense when I called and couldn't find it. Took camera away, found it, put camera back to face and it disappeared. ARGH! Looking. Waiting. No leaping fish. Waiting. Looking. Waiting. Stuff it - "COME ON FISHY!!!". Back he comes! I love this fishy. Finally I got a photo of him - it's not good by any stretch of the word but I've seen leaping fish and I got the photo to prove it.

The rest of the walk wasn't so exciting (though it was damned funny catching silly husband walking with his pants down as I rounded a corner way behind him after taking photos! Wont post that one though). Lovely walk and the sunset was just gorgeous.
