In short

I've decided my eating has gotten out of control (It's only taken me 2 years to figure that out - no speed records have been set using this brain). My clothes have been getting tighter n tighter (even in my new fat clothes) and funnily enough the scales have been going up n up.
So I'm giving 'Weight Watchers online' a whirl -to try and get my head around portion sizes again. I was eating more than husband and shovelling so much crap into my mouth without thinking, so i figured this might help me think about how much i should be eating in a day and to find a balance again.
Fingers crossed, I'm over feeling porky.

I just looked up and saw a mouse staring at me from the kitchen bench above the stove. I quickly pulled all the spice jars off the bench, grabbed a plastic bowl and planned to corner it & catch it under the bowl. That was a great idea ... until the bloody thing lurched and jumped from the bench straight at me!! I squealed...ducked... (cursed myself for being so pathetic) and it went straight over my head, plopped on the floor behind me and scurried under the stove.
I didn't want to kill him - he was kinda cute, i was planning on 'relocating' him (like to the neighbours... ). Hmmm, now I'll have to come up with another plan.
He's a tough mouse... he survived a 6ft leap! Impressive.

Since I'm on a health kick, I've been thinking about exercise and ways to get motivated.
I've decided (drumroll please...) I'm going to try and do a half marathon.
Cough, choke **splutter**
I'm serious. I'm going to train up slowly and aim for the City to Surf 1/2 Marathon in August (2009 is the first year they'll be adding that distance) so I have 9 months to train!

A girls gotta have a goal. (even if it is far-fetched)

Hi Drea! I clicked over earlier and started to comment, but had to close up and lend a hand to Matt (he fixed our tub drain!) so let me see if I can recreate:

A friend of mine started Weight Watchers last year and LOVES it. Small changes make all the difference, and she said a lot of it really comes down to fiber (never a bad thing). Have fun with it!

Eek - I'd duck and squeal if a mouse launched itself at me, too!

How far is a half marathon? Best wishes with the training - stay strong!

Mice are vermon...kill the bastard! Put out some baits or set some traps...they are horrible. I become obsessed with extermination when I have mouse in the house.

Have fun with the marathon will do great!

No not baits! If a dog gets it or gets the mouse you will have one sick puppy. Traps are best.

I'd like to lose 5kg. Could you do it for me please, I really don't want to go on a diet over Xmas.

Marathon training - blah! Never doing that again. You're young, it should be easy for you. Stretch, don't forget to stretch. Good luck.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
