Officially on holiday…

Hey gals and pals! ❤

How is everyone doing this very fine yet unfeasibly cold evening? I'm fantastic, apart from being cold. Anywho, I'd firstly like to say sorry for not posting last night especially knowing that last night was supposed to be weigh in night (don't panic, I got on the scales this morning!) I'm now officially on holiday so I was just trying to catch up with some people that I haven't seen for four weeks during the Witches season so I guess it's another post of doing 2 days worth of eating activities.

Anywho, so I've left Titahi Bay for the meantime, and have gone to Miramar to stay with my lovely boyfriend and his family before I go off to Auckland to visit my Mum for a week. It's about time I went up to Auckland, apart from closing night, which was the night that Mum came to Witches, I hadn't seen my Mother since January and I was feeling pretty awful about that, so I'm pretty glad that I'm going back up there for a week, to see my lovely Auckland pals and have a bit of R&R and all that jazz… So I'm looking forward to that I think that would be quite nice.

Anywho, shall I get on with it?

Breakfast: Banana, Yoghurt (99% fat free) and Muesli made with trim milk. Also a cup of coffee made with trim milk and a couple of glasses of water.

Lunch: A McChicken Combo (which Bryce had upsized to Large… I was against this occurrence… and couldn't even eat it all, plus I really don't like Coke…)

Dinner: Slow Cooked Venison stew with Mashed Potato and steamed veges.

On the exercise front for Monday, even though I said I would get back into the programme… I had completely forgotten about it, however, I helped them with their paper run so there was a bit of walking around which I hope would make up for it. Fingers crossed! Moving on…

Breakfast: damnit… I missed it! 😦 Bad Girl! Although I did have a cup of coffee it still doesn't make up for a complete lack of eating breakfast! 😦

Lunch: Three Pepper Chicken Subway with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onions, capsicum and olives with Chipotle dressing.

Dinner: Slow cooked Venison stew with Mashed Potato and steamed veges (yes it happened twice… no you don't have deja vu)

On the exercise front! Yay! I lived up to my promise and have gotten back into the exercise programme YAY! 😛 Just once through though, I thought I might give my body the chance to remember how to do things before increasing it to twice through next week, now I promise that I will do that as expected.

Now, results from the weigh-in…
Weight is: 79kgs (still…)

Not too happy about the fact that I'm still 79kgs after how many weeks? So I'm glad that I've gotten back into the proper exercise programme and I WONT let my boyfriends Mum corrupt me with fatty foods and chocolate and all that jazz! I've GOT to make this weight shift…

I hope you all have a lovely night and I shall see you tomorrow! 🙂


It’s all over!

Hi Hi Hi! 🙂

I’m sorry that I’m late in doing a posting! 🙂 I hope it’s ok with you guys that this might have to be an extra long post coz I’ve got 2 days worth of stuff to write about in here.

Anywho, last night as you’re probably very well aware was closing night, and boy was it a goody! We ended on a roar and a bang and it was a stunning way to end 4 months of really hard slog… I enjoyed every second of it and I love the experience and I can’t wait for the next one! 🙂 I wonder what the next one will be? And when the auditions will be held? Coz I’m definitely doing it again.

Anywho, the reason why I didn’t come and right up yesterdays stuff up last night was because true to form after the end of all good musicals we had an after party. It was pretty pumping and I do have to say that everyone was very much on form and the drinks were flowing and I didn’t get home until 2:30am hence the reason why I didn’t stay up to do an entry. After about 3 Vodka Cranberry’s and a glass of wine… all my thoughts pretty much just lay in the area of sleep when I got home! I pretty much just washed my face off and was pretty much sound asleep by 2:50am! Heheheehehe.

Anyway… Shall I tell all?

Breakfast: Banana, Yoghurt (99% fat free) and Muesli made with trim milk. Also a cup of coffee made with trim milk and a couple of glasses of water.

Lunch: Carbonara Flavoured Microwave Pasta

Dinner: Country Chicken Soup

Supper: (don’t judge me… we were drinking, we needed to have something to put in our bellies) A couple of slices of pizza and bread with cheese and some Doritos also.

So yes all that as well as about 3 Vodka Cranberries and a glass of wine… anywho the real naughty stuff is saved for later…

Breakfast: Banana and a cup of coffee made with trim milk.

Brunch: (organized by the people I did pack out with! 😛 ) A small pancake stack

Afternoon Tea: Half a scoop of chips… 😛 Yea… great post drinking cure but rather naughty!

Dinner: Tagliattelli Pasta with Alfredo sauce (only enough to coat the pasta, not drown in it)

So yea, that’s pretty much it… Of Course as far as exercise is concerned lots of dancing around on Saturday night… before and after the performance, the after performance dancing was slightly aided by alcohol however! Hehehehehehehehe! 😛 As for Sunday, it was Pack out day, so I did a lot of walking around the theatre, going up and down the stairs numerous amounts of times and going up and down the exceptionally long corridor. After that though, I was quite exhausted and spent pretty much the rest of the day in bed! I know, I know, lazy! But I was exhausted!

Anywho, that’s enough from me! Have a lovely night! 🙂

Cold weather and swollen toes…

Hi people who love people! 🙂

How are we? I’m fabulous… super duper tired… very cold and the swelling on me toes have returned. So I’m unsure as to whether I should amputate it or not. Nah! I’m kidding! I don’t want to cut off a toe! 😛

Anywho, I doubt this post will be a long one coz I’m rather tired and I haven’t really got anything interesting to report so I might just get right on with it aye?

Breakfast: Banana, Yoghurt (99% fat free) and Muesli made with trim milk. Also a cup of coffee made with trim milk and a couple of glasses of water.

Lunch: Mince Pie (yea… I know, this is the second time this week I’ve eaten a pie, but seriously!!! It’s so friggin cold that I don’t even think that I could eat something that wasn’t hot, if you know what I mean, I will probably pay for it though… 😦 never mind, no more pies)

Dinner: Traditional Pumpkin Soup (Yum!)

Bit of walking around at tech and to and from bus stops and all that. So there was a bit of physical exercise today before the ubiquitous boogie on down business at Witches of Eastwick! 🙂

So I think that’s it… have a wonderful night! 🙂

It’s nearly over!

Hi Hi Hi!

How you guys doing? Apart from being unfeasibly sleepy I’m fantastic 🙂 oh… and I have a wee bit of a sore toe too… but what else is new? Lol!

Still trying to get my head around the fact that there’s only 2 more shows left in the season. I seriously don’t know what I’ll do with myself once it’s done. I guess I’ll have to do the next one that comes along… I really love doing the whole musical theatre thing… I’m pretty sure I’m born to do this. So please… if anyone knows of any auditions happening locally… let me know and I’ll show up and try out! 🙂

Anywho… let’s carry on shall we?

Breakfast: Banana, Yoghurt (99% fat free) and Muesli made with trim milk. Also a cup of coffee made with trim milk and a couple of glasses of water.

Lunch: Petita (meaning small) Pita Pit pocket in Chicken Caesar flavour… with lots of veges like lettuce and avocado, cucumber, tomato, carrots, mushrooms, red onions, pineapples and cheese with Teriyaki sauce.

Dinner: Mushroom Soup

Yea, another hard out night at Witches exercise wise… also there was a bit of up and down of the old stairs business… 😛 So I think we might be back in business, or so I’m hoping.

Anyway, thought this might be a short entry… So, I’ll leave it at that! Have a lovely night! 🙂

Still cold! Snow damn you!

Hey guys…

How are you? I’m great, except it’s bloody cold… I know it’s winter and everything and that’s what it’s supposed to do… but hey, if it’s going to be this cold it might as well be interesting and snow for us, I’m not wrong am I?

Anywho, had another rousing evening at Witches of Eastwick tonight… not a large audience, but they were a good one, we had a wee cackler in the audience and it was great… In all honesty I’d much rather perform in front of a small yet appreciative audience than a large unresponsive audience.

I have a feeling tonights blog posting is not going to be a long one, so shall I?

Breakfast: Yoghurt (Yes, just yoghurt, I’d run out of Muesli and Bananas… how unfortunate… luckily I went shopping today… it was 99% fat free though)

Lunch: Chicken & Mushroom Pie (hey I know… it’s a pie but I have my reasons, being it did not get higher than 8 degrees today and I needed hot food and well, salad isn’t very warm now is it)

Dinner: Chicken Chowder (yum!)

So I told you it wasn’t going to be a long post… lots of walking around at tech today too, as well as a walk around the supermarket all that on top of shaking my thing on stage for Witches… 🙂 So it was the most exercise filled day thus far for the week… 🙂

I hope you had a wonderful day! I did… have a nice week! 🙂

It’s way too cold!

Good evening my pretties! 🙂

How are we all tonight? Me? I’m bloody freezing! Is it just me or did it all of a sudden just get really really cold? I think it’s the latter.

Well, I can safely say that I have completed that creative enterprise assignment, good golly I loathe report writing… I’m no bloody good at it and it makes my brain hurt. Even though I’m completely opposed to the addition of an appendix on a report, I did one anyway, well, it was required of me. I mean, if a human being can survive SANS appendix… I’m sure that a report can survive without one too. I came so close to asking my tutor if it was ok that I handed in a report that had had an appendectomy! 😛

Anywho, shall I?

Breakfast: Banana, Yoghurt (99% fat free) and Muesli made with trim milk. Also one cup of coffee made with trim milk and a couple of glasses of water.

Lunch: Microwave Mushroom Rice

Snack: Nut Deluxe flavoured (Weight Watchers) Muesli Bar… I did get a wee bit peckish at about 4 o clockish… I think the whole eating dinner at 5pm when the show’s on is throwing me all out of kilter.

Dinner: Tandoori Chicken (thigh cut) with Garlic Couscous.

On the whole a very good day, even though I did say that I was going to start doing the programme again today, I didn’t get round to it… It just slipped my mind when I was trying to finish off my report, doing loads of washing, dishes and constantly trying to remember my little jobs while my landlords are away. However, I was on my feet a bit more than I was the other day, so I hope that helps.

Also, a friend of mine might have given me a reason why my body is finding it hard to drop more weight, and it seems legit. He says my body could have well gone into starvation mode, nothing horrible about that, but sometimes these things can happen, so he gave me a tip to up my protein again to try and jolt my metabolism, so I’m going to see if I can eat more lean red meat and try and snack on things like nuts… I may also look into a protein shake of some sorts.

So on the whole, a pretty good day was had! Hope yours was lovely too! 🙂 See you tomorrow! 🙂

Week 5 weigh-in!

Hey y’all!

How might you be? I be good… I had another day at home, I did a load of washing today, and it has become apparent to me that we may be needing a new washing machine. Not spinning clothes very well, leaving a weird mark on the clothes, and wash cycles seem to be very stop-start at the moment. What a time for the landlords to go away huh? Oh well, I shall have to inform them when they get back if it doesn’t get any better.

I also tried to finish off an assignment, I did need to be able to have a list of references so I was doing a bit of research, I was quite merrily doing so when Google decided it didn’t like me anymore, it wasn’t any other website, just Google. So I had a wee break from that assignment. I had me feet in a foot spa at the time so I wasn’t too perturbed.

Anywho, enough of this nonsense, shall I?

Breakfast: Banana, Yoghurt (99% fat free) and Muesli made with trim milk. Also a cup of coffee made with trim milk and a couple of glasses of water.

Lunch: Microwave Creamy Bacon Pasta.

Dinner: Homemade Butter Chicken (basically halved the recipe so this time I wouldn’t end up with soup, it was good, not so soupy and very very tasty might have to make it again sometime soon)

As for exercise, I didn’t manage to get out for the walk I said I would do yesterday, I really did try though I walked up and down the driveway several times whilst waiting for the recycling bins to be ready to bring in. I also just got caught up in all the kerfuffle of studying and researching, I should try harder next time.

I also did the weigh-in for the week and the results are in!
My weight is now:
79kgs… or should I say my weigh is STILL…

I’m quite annoyed actually, I really have been monitoring really hard, and I did honestly think it would be ok to put the exercise programme on hold just while the show was on, perhaps not. So, I have decided that I’m going to restart the exercises again tomorrow night. If I do end up injuring myself I’m sure it will be fine considering that there are only four more shows left in the season. I also need to stop being so complacent about things now with the knowledge that I have lost 5kgs… So I just have to keep going and not lose focus! 🙂

Have a wonderful night and I’ll see you tomorrow! 🙂
