Hehe Jewels - It actually wasn't as far as I thought it was! Much better than the packed footy trains...

Yeah anyway. It's easter Sunday. Did anyone really think I was going to get a star today? I relaxed, I worked, I didn't exercise, and I ate a lot of chocolate. And lamb roast.. mmm.

Back on the wagon tomorrow, I promise! *grin*

I had a day off yesterday, too, Mandie. And it was wonderful! But I enjoyed going out for exercise today and had a healthy lunch and am ready for the week ahead. You'll get loads of stars for sure :)
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Thank you! Now I feel bad for not getting my star today. I had an alright day foodwise - I went to a BBQ and had a couple of small easter eggs, but overall I avoided chips and said no to chocolate cake and coke, so I did pretty well!

We played soccer for about half an hour or so, but we were sitting in the sun all day (and I was kicking the footy around with my friend for a bit too), and I didn't drink much water.

This evening I had a headache and felt pretty unwell and lethargic.. eventaully realised I was dehydrated and drank heaps before I went to bed (thanks Dee!) at 8.30pm - so no run for me tonight!

So, no star.. but I wasn't too far off. I'll get one tomorrow, I'm planning on hitting the gym!

Yeah Kate it did feel pretty good to say no to chocolate cake.. I didn't need it!

Went to the gym today. Skipped the cross trainer but did all my weights and stuff (was feeling faint so didn't wanna do the cardio), and I ate pretty well today so I got my first post-easter star...

:D

I got another star today! Didn't go running (see that thread) but I did some exercises in my room (jogging/skipping on the spot, alternating with lunges, squats, sit ups etc) and came under calories by 27! Woohoo!

no star today... went to drinks at the hospital after uni and had some nibbles... went over calories by a couple of hundred (i was quite restrained, and didn't have any alcohol) but i haven't had the chance to exercise today, and i have an exam tomorrow!

im going to go to the gym after my exam though, so hopefully ill have a nice shiny star tomorrow :)

Best of luck with your exam Mandie.

Are you always a night owl? I just realised how late many of you posts are, do you get to get up late? I'm up at 5am during the week so I have to be in bed by around 9:30pm so I can get at least 7 hrs sleep.

some of the lateness might be due to my being on the west coast...

but yep, i'm a night owl. if i had my way, id go to bed at 2am and get up at 10-11am every day.

although i'm up early now - that's because i have an exam today, and i don't tend to sleep before exams... its very bad behaviour *wrist slap* but i haven't slept before an exam since year 11 and i always do well, so i guess its just my way of coping with the anxiety - the adrenaline seems to kick in at the right time and i get through the exam, i'll have a good sleep later this morning when it's over!
