Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou

And Thankyou again, for all the lovely 50th Birthday wishes to me.

I have had a lovely week. Since we last spoke my children gave me a beautiful pair of sapphire and diamond earrings. They are gorgeous! Yes my "kids" and the earrings.

The party is over and it is time to "de-tox"! I have had more than my share of alcohol lately and I am now going to have an alcohol-free week. I have been fairly good with food, but have certainly been eating exactly what I wanted. My weight has remained stable, no thanks to the amount of exercise I have been doing, as that has been almost non-existent. I did pull a muscle in my upper back last week during my only day at work! I carried a heavy box of patient files to the office next door where I do my typing and have certainly paid for it since. That is almost 100% now though, so no more excuses not to use my crosstrainer.

So here is the plan this week:

No Alcohol (As at Friday - so far, so good)
Lots of water
Only eat healthy food (A few twisties crept in!)
Monday - 30 mins jog on tramp (done)
Tuesday - 30 mins crosstrainer (done)
Wednesday - rest
Thursday - 30 mins jog on tramp (done)
Friday - 30 mins crosstrainer (done)
Saturday - 30 mins jog on tramp while watching "Knitty Gritty" (no tramp - watched Knitty and then DH and I went on our 12km walk to town and back - subway for lunch 1/2 way of course)
Sunday - 30 mins crosstrainer
