And just lovin' me veges. And can't get enough of them. All colours, tastes and textures and filled with vitamins and nutrients. I'm a bit of a cheater though and buy the fresh stir-fry vege bags these days but last night added extras that are still in the fridge since I'm the only one here and no-one else is gonna eat em. Prawn and vege stir-fry with fresh garlic slices and sweet chilli sauce. May have overdone the garlic a bit but I'll find out today if Liz tells me I stink (lol). We got another date with the powerbands, just in time to get sore again, after being relieved by a massage yesterday afternoon. Ah, the joys of training, recovering then training again. It's RADICAL man!!

Rest of the family left this morning at 5 am driving (10 hours) down to our hometown to visits grandparents, uncles/auntys, and cousins. I opted to stay home for the week by myself and work as I'm taking next week off to go on holidays with Katie which was planned back in May long before hubby decided to take holidays and go away with the kids. I am however, flying (my kind of travel) down early Saturday morning to spend a few days with them before flying to Cairns. It'll be a quiet week without them but at least I'll have a tidy house (lol).

Or I could be talking about getting massive by what the kids bought me:
And from Dave some gorgeous ones from here:
Do you think there's a secret message or a common theme here?
I got lots of other great loot also.
Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes.

I love food, all kinds and lots of it.
Yesterday I had a hankering for prawns and lots of veges but couldn't be arsed chopping up a shitload so I trotted off to Woolies and bought:
A packet of frozen whiting fillets
A packet of frozen green prawns
A packet of Primo 97% fat free bacon
A 420 gram packet of one minute stir-fry veges
A 400 gram packet of traditional stir-fry veges
Threw it all in the electric wok, cooked, poured over some balsamic vinegar and voila - lunch and afternoon tea - delicious!!
PS Sorry no pic - in the guts now!

Feeling = I've been revising my psyche stuff. Yep, I fucked up on the weekend eating and drinking way too much. In hindsight I became complacent, scared, and allowed my emotions to take over. I've never said I was perfect although I do try my hardest to fill my expectations in this regard. I've had to work hard these past couple of days to reframe my negative thoughts with regards to my body image. For example, on Monday morning I thought "you look like a fat cow" and reframed this with "you're a lean, mean, metabolic machine". With clouded thoughts I was disillusional in thinking I had legs like tree trunks, an arse like an elephants and abs that had been banished forever but of course it was only fluid with maybe a little fat but I know how to get rid of fat. I've been practising for years (lol). Yesterday I became much happier to see the lines reappearing and today they're looking even finer and abs are back baby. I commented last week that "this maintenance shit is hard". I'm still trying to work out my calorie level with regards to intake and expenditure and I'm determined to keep pushing forward. This is what makes my journey exciting - always having something to work on and work out. It's the name of the game - continuous improvement. If is was all black and white I think I'd be bored shitless!

Feeling = The weekend's festivities have caught up with me. When I looked in the mirror this morning I didn't like what I saw. Chalked up on the blackboard as experience. On the plus side I had energy to burn this morning and it was great to once again train with Nicole who put me through my paces by devising a KB workout which had me sweating, swearing, breathing heavy and grunting, all of which I thoroughly enjoyed. The flippers are on and I'm swimming to her wedding this coming Sunday. A few days and this body will be back where I want it to be.
This is what I like about being a "One - The Perfectionist".
- I am self-disciplined and able to accomplish a great deal
- I have high standards and ethics
- I am reasonable, responsible, and dedicated in what I do
- I put facts together, come to good understandings, and figure out wise solutions
- I am being the best I can be and bring out the best in other people too
