About me

I've had a hard few weeks. My beloved cat of 15 years passed away... I still see her everywhere... I catch something moving out of the corner of my eye and I turn around expecting to see her :-(

Then my son got sick and I've hardly had any sleep the past few nights.... for me, that's the hardest thing about being a parent. Being up at night when they are sick and worrying if it's something serious. I wouldn't turn back the clock but I'd love to fast forward through these times... I'm exhausted.

I was planning today as my day to exercise and dukan again but alas... that fell through :-( excuses excuses get me every time.

Hope everyone else is doing better! Off to read some blogs!

Oops... my week has extended. I've just got a copy of Wheat Belly to read. Will update as I read interesting info. How is everyone? Seems very quiet on the Dukan front lately.

Week off

I'm still here. Just needed to take a week off (not going overboard though). It does get hard sometimes to have to think about everything you eat and plan it all out. One day I hope it will be more automatic... but we're talking about re-training what I've been doing my entire life.

Hope everyone else is ok!!! Summer seems to have finally arrived in New Zealand! YAY.

Another run complete - Check!
When I was out this morning (I have to go at 6am otherwise I'm on baby duty and it's too hot) I passed a lady that obviously put on a lot of perfume before she left the house to exercise, thankfully it smelt like candy so I wasn't complaining... but it made me wonder how much people prepare before leaving the house to exercise, even when it's as early as a sparrows fart.

I basically roll out of bed, run the toothbrush over my teeth (for morning breath rather than cleaning sake), shove on some trainers and I'm out the door. Don't tell anyone but the shorts I'm running in also double as my PJ pants ;-)

So what do you guys do? Roll out the door like me or is there much more prep work involved?

Today I had to head to the Hospital for a specialist appt about my hernia. Hopefully it will be operated on within 3-5 months but I probably won't be able to run for ages after it. Stink. I'm not going to let it stop me now though. In the past I would have thrown in the towel and said, I'll wait til after the op. But I'm a new me. I'm not listening to excuses anymore.
