[a weight loss story]

*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*



Yesterday I bought a copy of Marie Clare - I don't normally buy glossy mags but I was sucked in by the free tote bag offer. They had an article on the Hottest Coats under $500 and MY COAT was in it. I was like - woohoo, my coat is in a magazine, I'm all chic and stuff. I was going to tell the guy sitting opposite me on the tram but figured he probably wouldn't care.

I went to the gym for the first time in a week last night. Afterwards, I felt pretty wiped out. I probably overdid it. Then I got home and rearranged all my furniture. I'm pretty happy with how everything looks but I need to buy an extention cord so I don't have cords everywhere.

I like to have things organised and orderly in my room. Because we aren't very communal in my house, I mostly live in my room. I have my tv and my fridge in my room and only really use the bathroom and kitchen in the rest of the house. Luckily my room is huge. There are a couple of things I want to buy - a microwave (was going to put this in the kitchen but my housemates are such pigs, I think I'll put it on top of the fridge) and a big fluffy matt.

Anyway, after all that I just wanted to crash but it wasn't to be. I have no idea what my housemate was doing but every time I was almost asleep, she'd storm through the house, slam the front door and leave. Then, a few minutes later, she'd do the same in reverse. Not just once about 4 or 5 times and every time was just after I'd fallen asleep. I wanted to kill her but didn't. I did put on a load of washing early this morning though (her room is next to the laundry and the water pipes really thump).

I'm getting a new computer for Mother's Days - woohoo! It's not actually new-new, it's my old computer that Andrew took when he moved out. He got a scholarship for $2000 so is buying himself a brand new PC and giving me his old one. I told him it's not really a gift since I paid for it in the first place but he said he's going to reformat the hard drive and reinstall all the software I want so the gift is in the labour. It's much faster and better than this old clunker.

I think I might go easy on the exercise today. I have the fun run tomorrow and I'm not sure how I'll go with that. At the time, I tossed up whether to enter the run or the walk (8km) and decided on the walk. I'm so glad I did that now because I don't think I'm well enough to be speedy.

Take it easy. You don't want to over do it, and end up sicker for longer!

good stuff for doing the walk instead - if your not feeling up to it, the run will be too hardcore!

Good luck tomorrow, just make sure you enjoy it. Say hi as you pass me...
