Yay!It's a long weekend!!

I am very much looking forward to this long weekend in Western Australia. I am going down south again to my OH family's holiday house. I am looking forward to some nice relaxing days, visit some winderies, some nice long runs (hopefully) and spending time with my OH and his family.

I have now put my application in for uni to do my masters in human resources. So I will know in a few weeks if I am accepted. I am very much looking forward to going back to study. I know it will be crazy, but when is life not? I have been doing work experience in HR for a mining company and loving it. I will initially be doing the course full-time and working for this first semester and then hopefully get a job in HR management and do part-time from then on. I may be lucky enough to a get a job in the company I am doing the work experience for. We will see in the next few weeks if all that goes to plan.

Exercise and diet wise has been ok but there is definite improvement that can occur. I stepped on the scales for the first time this morning and was a little suprised by the number but it is the TOTM so I am not too concerned. I have been plodding along with food and exercise and I feel like I need a new challenge to get myself really motivated again. I am going to follow the program that Sue did for me a few years ago that worked wonders back then another go. I felt so good at the end of the 12 weeks and managed to lose weight and tone up. I will be strating off less than I did last time so I hope to see some noice changes! I will be starting when I get back from this long weekend. So I will be posting a bit more to keep myself accountable.

Feeling good!

I have had areally good past week. It really feels like everything has finally clicked since I have come home. It really has taken me a while to settle back into things.

My knee has finally settled down. I really have no idea what was happening with it. I really need to go and buy new runners so that may be p[art of the problem. My calves are now the ones that have been bothering me but I know if I stretch them they will feel better. I have been doing jacobs ladder a few times a week so I that is the reason my calf muscles are tight. I am really enjoying my running again, so now that my knee feels better I can hope to extend my runs a little further. Diet wise everything has clicked as well. I am really feeling positive at the moment.

I have a crazy weekend ahead and rest of the week. I have been doing some work experience as well as my normal work to see if HR is what I really want to do. My first day was last friday and absolutely loved it. They through me right in but I suppose that is the best way to learn sometimes. I am back there on Friday so I hope for another successful day. The time just flew by and it felt great to be doing something completely different to what I am used to. So I have one of my closest friends engagement party on Friday night, a friends birthday saturday day, my OH mother's b'day saturday night and then mother's day on sunday. I will be exhausted by monday!!

Have a great day on Sunday all you mothers out there!!
