S specific I want to lose 15 kilos

M Measurable well the scales will give me the results

A achievable it's definitely doable if I stick to the plan.

R realistic very I've done it before and know i can do it again

T time before sept 29th.

I am determined to lose weight I dont want to be worrying about being uncomfortable on the plane and I dont want to not fit into my clothes or feel tired and lacking in energy all the time. I want to be fit healthy and not feel self conscious about how I look. So today was the first day and so far so good I have a little bit of a headache which I put down to coffee with drawals.
Going to keep myself busy and not think about food. I am also going to use my Gym membership and get too the gym at least 4 times a week and walk at least once a week.

Lost Day

Strange title I know but the thing is I do feel like I lost yesterday. I had such a great time at the School Ball on Friday night Fiona Jen and I just really click and we laughed chatted and had a great evening looking at all the students all dressed up and chatting to them as adults. I took over 100 photos many in groups of students and teachers combined, then to get half way home from the Ball and realise I didnt have my camera in my bag was the worse feeling. We called the Ballroom called other teachers, students but too no good it appears my camera has magically disappeared. To say I am devastated is an understatement. I guess only another camera enthusist would understand how attached you get too the camera. The other thing is that I had already been anticipating what kits I would use to scrap all my photos with as well. So yesterday I just couldnt bare to look at photos or even visit the scrap forum for nay sign of anything connected to photos had me in tears. I guess part of me is still hoping that Monday at school my camera maybe handed back but I am very doubtful. The thing is my camera was not even ayr old and its is an awesome little camera. Its valued at $500 and it didnt have my name or anything on it. Just really want my photos I took too. I guess I will eventually accept the fact I am not getting it back and the photos I took are lost forever but sure hate the feeling.

God Speed Luke

It's kind of weird how you can meet some one and immediately feel a connection to them. Well there is jsut something about Luke that affected me. Perhaps because he has today sailed out on the HMAS ANZAC in the Australian Navy to the Persian Gulf for the next 6 months. He met Carli just over a week ago and was immediately smittened by her and since then they saw each other almost every day and part of that time I got to talk to him about his role in the Navy and his family. I was so impressed with him he was so well spoken and mature. I mean if he likes my daughter it kind of means he is a very smart young man. However a part of me wishes I didnt get too meet him as even after just a short time if something was to happen to him I would be deeply effected by it. So God Speed Luke and stay safe.

Diva Carli

well its Carli's 25th Birthday today so hard to believe I have a 25 yr old adult child. I only feel 25 myself. I just hope that this next yr sees her achieve her dreams of love romance and independence that she finds what she needs to be truly happy in her own skin. That she learns the value of family and the need to be more acepting and less judgemental and intolerant of others.

you aint added to your blog since April 19th

well here I am adding too my blog after Donn pointed out to me that I hadnt updated it since April 19th. Really I can't belive I haven't updated as so much has been going on. The most wonderful exciting thing is on 16th of May I booked and confirmed my trip to Texas on September 28th for 2 weeks and I feel like a new woman now I have a definite date of when I am getting to see Donn again. It's just more wonderful than words can say. The other really exciting part of that is I am going a very different route from my usual way. I am going via japan and I get to spend 5 hrs there so I am hoping to get out of the airport and go for a little tour and take some awesome photographs.
