Weigh-in Wednesday!

This was supposed to be posted yesterday sorry!

I feel so bad because its been forever since I did a WiW post! Ok, the bad news is that NOTHING has changed!! I still weigh the same that I did weeks ago!! I've been going up and down a little but nothing major. And yes, I know, its all my lazy fault and I need to give myself a swift kick in the butt!

The good news is that the swift kick in the butt has already happened and I have been really good at the exercise this week! One of the main reasons is that I am running my first 10k run on the 18th of April with some of my bfs! Eek! I am excited and scared to death at the same time! My bf, R, has set us up a training programme for us and that is really motivating me to get going!

Exercise for this week thus far:
M - 4km run/ walk on treadmill
T- 5km run/walk outside
W- 10 min elliptical/ 30 min powerplate

Goals for the week:
* get back into drinking 2L of water a day!
* Run/walk 10 more km for the week.
* don't overdo the chocolates and hot cross buns over Easter!

I am loving the 4 day weeks this month!! We have 3 of those in South Africa for April! Woohoo!

What are you doing on the 18th of April? Care to join me?

Top 2 Tuesday!

Top 2 favourite baby names!

This is a topic that dh and I often discuss ane very seldom agree on even though we don't have any children yet!

So for now I will just let you know my favourite names:

1. For a girl... I really like the name Gabriella but with HSM I think it may be way to popular now. I also like names ending in "Ella' like Isabella, Bella, etc.

2. For a boy...I really liked the name Aidan(which is my name backwards), or maybe even Hayden.

Cool, go over to Taylor at the undomestic momma if you'd like to link up and play along!

Monday's Mantra

Its SO hot in Cape Town at the moment as we are experiencing a crazy heat wave!! All I can think of is laying by a pool and sipping cocktails in this weather!! How are people expected to work!

This week-end was a crazy busy one for me.

Sat dh and I went along with a group of American study abroad students that I work with to World of Birds in Hout Bay and then onto fish n chips for lunch and a boat trip to Seal Island.

After that I attended a Mad Hatters Tea party where I had to speak about previous work that I did with vulnerable teen girls on camps.

Mom and me at the Mad Hatter's tea

This week
is about catching up on much needed sleep.
I believe God always has our best interests at heart.
I'm addicted to woolies berry frozen yoghurt!
I wish I had a portable air-con that followed me everywhere I went.
I'm jealous that I'm not lazing on a tropical island sipping cocktails.
Soundtrack/Mantra for the week Hush, hush, hush, hush (I'm trying to sleep!)

Top 2 Tuesday!

Top 2 Favourite Stores

My number one favourite store in South Africa is:

I can always find something that I LOVE at woolies!

My number 2 is a shoe store cause you know I love shoes!

I don't often get to buy shoes at ALDO cause I can't always afford it but I would shop there every month if I could. In fact, I just saw a pair there the other day that I would love to own...
