Yard work and other ramblings...

OMG I hate yard work!!

We spent the whole weekend rotary hoeing our front yard (which used to be a jungle-like garden) to a relatively flat dirt patch. We shovelled and wheel-barrowed out about a trucks worth of dirt!! It is now relatively flat and ready for lawn seed!!

I am so excited. I can't wait to have something that resembles lawn in the front of our house. It will look amazing. My body is protesting in agony everytime I move!! On the up side it is a bloody good workout.

Well tomorrow is a new month and goodbye to our Australian summer :( but I am looking forward to autumn and winter in a strange way. Don't get me wrong I love the sun and warmth but I find summer to be so busy! When the weather cools so does the family social schedules!! I also love the way the leaves fall from the trees! It just looks so pretty :)

I have been a bit naughty on the eating front this week/fortnight. I have endulged in too many desserts. I will try to reduce the times I have dessert this week in an effort to get the scale moving downward again. Last week I had a gain of 0.4kgs which although it is only small, it is still a gain. I am happy with my result from February - 2.9kgs down. Definately improved on January's result of a 1kg gain.

I am not scheduled for another fill until 19 March - I definately think I will get a fill though. I am eating a lot less than pre-band Kellie but not as little as I should be eating as post-band Kellie! I think I will ask for 1ml but am a little scared that might be too much and I don't want to have to get an unfill. I will ask the surgeon and see what he thinks.

I am hoping that March will bring another loss on the scale. Perhaps 3-3.5kgs - if I work hard to cut down on the treats I should definately get there. I am looking forward to reaching my next goal of 15kgs down. I will have to start thinking of a little reward for myself (non-food!!).

Hope you all have a lovely week :)
