Friday Fitness

Friday Fitness

What magazines inspire you?

My favourites are:
Women's Health
Weight Watchers

I love each of them for different reasons and I subscribe to them all. Each one has great information on exercise, diet and motivation. 

I cut out important articles, recipes, exercises and inspirational images and post them up in places I look most.
Things to do this week:
  1. Find something that inspires you and post it.
  2. Move more; Make “YOU” time by getting in more active activities than this week.  It shouldn't be too hard to do this. 
  3. Try something new
  4. Make obtainable short term goals and stick to it
  5. Eat more vegetables and protein.
This is my inspiring photo for this week. Zuzana from I have a similar outfit. (looks better on Zuzana) I am going to workout  in this this morning.
Inspiring quotes:
from Nelson Mandela and Audrey Hepburn.

My new plan:
  • Exercise at least once a day
  • Eat at least 5 serves of vegetables a day (one cup = one serve)
  • Have protein with every meal (part of the Weight Watchers ProPoints Plan) (a serve of lean meat is palm size) Protein can be chicken breast, turkey breast, eggs, fish, low fat dairy, whey protein and lean red meat.
  • Eat 6 meals a day
  • Drink at least 2 litres of liquid (not diet soft drinks I no longer consume these do to their health risks) Can be water, soda water, ginger tea and coffee (limit of two per day).
  • Stick to two alcoholic drinks only 2 days a week
Let's get me back under 50kg.

Drab to fab

Renovations Update
Here is our tiles grouted and beautifully laid. A few things for the tiler to fix this weekend.It looks very classy - I need to do a huge clean on the weekend.

The new tiled area
the tile splashback near the sink
our newly tiled ensuite (the white tiles are the area where the mirror will go but symmetrical and centered)
the shower (with bad glare from the window)
how cool are those walls?
doorway all tiled
The rusty tiles I fell in love with and had to have at $50 a square meter
Toilet again
the mitred tiles look expensive (and they are)
The shower wall
our ensuite doorway looking into our masterbedroom
the mess the tilers left us to clean up. Grrr!
Getting organised
The sink in the flats bathroom - untidy
tidied up
my bedside table all messy
tidied up and all dusted and shiny
I organised the recipe books and the clutter bowl
I changed for the messy and all over the place notebook for important details to a smaller one for when we move across the road.
I can't wait to move back home. It is getting slowly there.
