that is all...
i'm kinda boring...
but i am a bit of a loner...
i like kitties...
and i love chips and dip...
i think that should suffice...
Songbird_nz: Ok, so... I had a considerable break from weighing myself on the scales... Today was the first time in 11 days that I hadn't weighed myself and... Yep... Still haven't lost any weight
So, I go to Body Conditioning every Monday night which is an intense full body workout for an hour. I also have an at home exercise workout routine which usually takes about 20-25 minutes to go through, PLUS my 30 day Squat challenge. My exercise pattern is 4 days on 1 day off, 4 days on 1 day off and so on and so forth.
My diet is fairly well balanced. Breakfast is a banana with yoghurt and a bit of cereal, lunch is a small bowl of pasta and dinner is usually a protein source (usually either a steak, or a skinless/boneless chicken breast) and some steamed veggies. Sometimes I'll make a pasta dish (but that was because I found a couple of packets of half empty spaghetti in my cupboard but they are gone now) I try not to have any snacks as I have an incredibly large sweet tooth and don't want to fall off the wagon but if I do have snacks they are nuts, usually almonds. I try not to have too much junk food too too often.
I'm just wondering... what more could I be doing? Any suggestions? Mind you, I'm unemployed so my budget is very, very tight.

Hanging_Around: Are you drinking much water per day? Your body can retain a lot of water if it's not used to getting a steady supply daily. Sounds weird but drinking more water will reduce that weight. I drink 5 litres a day but around 2-3 daily should be good for you

My face is filled with a tired sort of relief knowing that tomorrow is an exercising "rest" day. Phew!
Songbird_nz: Oh my... I appear to have volunteered myself to sing in a concert for my theatre company... EEEEEEP! I HAVE TO DO A SOLO!
Songbird_nz: Day Sixty-Nine:
My new tools in my battle of the bulge. A measuring tape, nice and long too and a little note book to make sure I have a food diary.
Songbird_nz: Day Sixty-Seven:
165 pushups at body conditioning tonight... plus the 30 that I did at home earlier today. Almost tempted to do another 5 to make it 200 pushups in one day... but I don't want my arms to fall off!
Songbird_nz: Lol... I think I have momentarily become Olivia Newton-John, Cassini I want this musical! Awwwww.... Flyxie... you're so unbelievably nice to me, you're making me blush but thank you so much for your kind words!
Songbird_nz: Day Sixty-Six:
Frankenpasta has become Frankenrice! Exciting stuff indeed!
Songbird_nz: I had such a splendiferous time at the PLT fundraiser... Now I want to sing ALL the Disney songs! It truly was a lovely evening enjoying some great singers performing some great songs. I had to listen to more Disney before I went to bed! Then I fell asleep to Julie Taymors' gender bending adaptation of The Tempest... 'twas a grand night!
Songbird_nz: Ok... So it is EXACTLY one month until my birthday, I have no idea what I want to do... So, any suggestions?

Songbird_nz: Lol! Do they still have Tupperware parties? Hehehehe... Yea, I should do something totally different, but I don't know what I can do on an extreme budget! Lol... and errr.... no... that is the very last thing that I want to do, in all honesty. I'm sorry, I just really don't like heights and such.
Songbird_nz: Day Sixty-Five:
How nice! A lovely evening celebrating PLT with a wonderful group of thespians ready for us to be entertained with Disney songs!
Songbird_nz: Day Sixty-Four:
You know what makes me happy? Having pupils who are willing to give themselves a challenge and try a "hard" song... but then nail it!
Songbird_nz: Day Sixty-Three:
A little post interview frankenpasta id always a good idea. Although, I couldn't find any philadelphia cream for cooking. I used creme fraiche instead... and I may have overdid it on the bacon... lol is ther such a thing?
Songbird_nz: Day Sixty-Two:
Could this lass be the one who does your photocopying? Let's hope so!
Songbird_nz: So, I have a job interview tomorrow at Warehouse Stationery at 4.30pm! THIS WILL BE THE ONE!
Songbird_nz: Today I found out that my theatre company is holding auditions for the new musical they are doing. It's called "All Shook Up" based on the music of Elvis, much like Mamma Mia was based on the music of Abba. I've applied for an audition... here's hoping I get one!
