Dog in the bed

Here is my dog Sledge all warm in the microfibre blanket.

Fat to Fit - Hello motivation where have you gone?

I so need to find my motivation, I am sure its hiding somewhere. I wasn't as freaked out by my weight at 53.9kg this morning as I probably should be. I know its because of the lack of exercise and good food and wine over the Easter holidays. This time last year I was at 50-51kg, I need to up the anti and get there again. I might go back and try a few weeks on the points system to see if it is the ProPoints causing the problem. Looking back over my weight tracker I know I can keep going at that weight.

I am making a commitment to get off my butt and get moving! What are you doing?

I hear you! Grabbing the jogging shoes and heading off for a run!

Embarrassing appointment

On Wednesday I had an appointment I thought I'd never attend. I purchased a GrabOne coupon for a colonic. I was nervous and scared of what I was to experience.

The lady at the clinic was very nice and it made it easier to do something uncomfortable. Before the experience started a had a consultation on eating and toilet habits which followed by a Ginger Tea with goji berries on the side followed by two shots for movement and bacteria followed by a lemon drink to help lubricate.

I was showed the cubical and told where to put my clothes and was given a towel to wear instead. I then had a infa red sauna for 30 minutes where I sweated out tonnes of water. It was hot but yet relaxing.

Next I was taken back to the cubical where I was introduced to the colonic machine. I was told to lube the tube and insert it into my rectum when i laid down onto the bench. The lady came in and turned the warm water on. It felt weird and I was told to expel the water like I "was doing a poo". Classy! I let out a ripper fart and was so embarrassed until i was told that was quite normal. So the next bit was the watery thing. I did this a few more times, sometimes holding the water for a couple of seconds and then releasing it. After about 5 goes, some poo came out. You can see it in a viewing tube. I was told to count to 20 then expel the water. This went on for ages. Finally the lady came in and gave me some reflexology on my feet and legs. I finished off the session and felt heaps better now that sensation had stopped.

I'm not sure if I would recommend this treatment to anyone but I'm glad I have experienced something like this and survived.

I saw these boots and I knew I had to have them. I bought them online, knowing I am approx a size 36, I tried them on and they fitted perfectly. I wore them for the first time yesterday. I got compliments from my hairdressers, shop assistants and the grocery boy at Woolworths.  I think they were totally worth the $99. At the moment I have square framed glasses in a brown colour and I think these are close to what I have now. For my next pair I might go bright! I was inspired from this outfit by the Westfield ad with GOK. I actually have most of the clothes to make this outfit work.

Polly Dolly - V2 - Trench

I couldn't decide which trench I wanted to use (I know they look the same but are different brands); so I decided to make two Polly Dollies this week. 

The RED Trench is beautiful and bright and I though it'd pair perfectly with a 1950's style dress. I love wearing boots with dresses and these were to DIE for!

For the GREEN Trench I chose to do a more casual style pairing it with jeans, a cute blouse and lace up boots. The bold colour of the handbag sets off against the green of the coat. I didn't want to go with the neutral trench as I wanted to make a statement. Now if only I can find this trench in Australia.
