Well I am home ! I have had a wonderful, relaxing time. Lets back track...saturday morning first thing i went to the docs...after a shake of his head he wrote me a script...he wants me on the meds for 6 months then i will go back and they will look at a program of taking me off them slowly. Once i got that script in my hand...i felt better...part of me knew something had gone on for my attitude and self belief to change all of a sudden (and i am sure fiona thought the same thing) and i am even amazed at myself over the last few weeks i didnt put 2 and 2 together. And while friday nite wasnt nice...im glad it happened so i clicked and did a bit of a homer simpson "Doh". Anyway i then went to the gym...and did 40 minutes on the treadmill ! OMG i was dying...lol i was on a gradient of 7 and speed of 4.2 and i actually burnt 485 calories which i thought was pretty damn impressive. I then went on the eleptical...now ive never managed more then 2 minutes...got over 2 minutes and was thinking go me and i think i can last to 5 minutes when suddenly i got a very strange sensation up the right side of my neck....so i stopped....and i still have a ache today from it. I have been taking panadeine extra strength since it happened (i cant take anti flammatories as i dont react good to ibuprofen) its not a sharp pain at all more like a dull kinda tired ache. Shortly i am gonna go have a short and deep heat it and see how it goes. Hopefully tomorrow its better as I have PT but im sure fiona you work around it. Then i went and did a lil shopping...bought some black leggings (which make my fat thighs look gross :() And then i took my sisters suggestion of splurging on a book...wandered around borders (local book store here) for quite a while...lots of books i wanted lol i could spend a fortune there ! But i found one of my fave authors (karin slaughter) has 3 new books out so i bought one of them. Then FINALLY it was time to go to the hotel...can we say GORGEOUS...the staff were all lovely (especially when i struggled finding my room lol) i got to my room (see photo below) it was a king deluxe room...just gorgeous all fitted out lovely...a big widescreen HD tv...comfy beds with HUGE pillows...i was all happy....a hour later i was thinking damn i dont wanna go out tonite and leave this room LOL so i didnt ! Well actually Jaimee rolled her ankle while on a run yesterday (great twosome we are eh?) and so she was staying home to ice it and rest it. Anyway so i room-serviced dinner. And the best news was they had a low calorie menu which they gave u all the nutritional values for. So i ordered a mediterranean chicken salad which was 199 calories. And was delish it was truly so yummy...i also discoverred (oh-oh) a tim tam in the mini bar LOL i rang mum and was like that tim tam wont last the nite ! LOL lucky for me i know they are 97 calories...so my salad, tim tam and a banana for dinner lol. This morning i had breakfast in bed which was just cornflakes (they didnt have weetbix) with skim milk.
The only real problem was the neighbours i had which i didnt hear at all except at 2am when the guy from what i heard locked the girl out of the room LOL so at that point i just ended up putting foxtel on ;)
I must say i walked out of that hotel feeling relaxed...enjoying the sunshine.
I did take some photos of me too...one is when i first got there yesterday so looking not so fab in my gym gear...the other is before i left the hotel this morning in my SIZE TWENTY top...i like the photos (im not looking all glam so dont expect that) but i guess a lil disappointed as theres not much difference from the photos in march. My face looks a lil slimmer but i think thats cos my hair is pulled back...but still im getting there bit by bit. I hope everyone has a fab sunday.
