Happy New Year

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I'm having severe issues with my band. Haven't been able to keep anything except clear liquids down most days (and sometimes not even those) and then I'll have a day where I can eat "band-normal" again. Weird stuff. Not happy about PBing everything though. And not to be too gross with TMI but what's coming up is totally chewed up pieces - often in like a mucussy ball. When I get stuck I'm getting severe pain in my back and under my ribs. NOT FUN. Watson's rooms are closed down till Monday so will call then and see if they can squeeze me in earlier than my Jan 22 appointment. I don't fancy carrying on this way for another 3 weeks. I just don't understand how a few weeks ago I was thinking I'd have to get a bit of fill IN and now I'm going to have to take some out. Too weird. Ugh I just ate a piece of chocolate and now that's stuck. CHOCOLATE!

We're going camping for 3 nights tonight with about 13 friends. None of which know about the band. So I think I'm going to have to basically pretend to eat so I don't have to keep running to the toilet and look bulimic! What great weather for camping too ... NOT. 39, 37, 35C is not the temperatures at which I want to be sleeping in a tent.  But it will be fun I'm sure and the caravan park has a pool at least!

We're going down south over the Australia day weekend to check out wedding venues. We love the wineries so thought it would be very "us" to get married down there. We want a low key cocktail party style wedding. Who knew that that would be just as expensive as a 3 course sit down meal white wedding! Geez! We had decided on April 2010, but then I checked out the weather averages and it's a 1 in 3 chance it will rain so we're looking at moving it to March 2010 now when it only rains 4 times a month. How sad is it that I'm looking at these things! The whole dress thing is freaking me out. I have awful flabby upper arms but there aren't too many (ie none) wedding dresses in the style I want with sleeves!!

Just another thing to add to our plate, and I can't remember if I've already mentioned it but we have to move in a couple of weeks. We bought a townhouse in May and have been renting it out. At the same time we are renting the place we're living in. The owners of ours have decided to sell (they offered it to us at a bargain price but we couldn't afford the two mortgages and we'd lose too much money to sell the other one in this market) and have asked us to be out by January 19th. Our tenant's lease was up on 20th Dec but we gave her till the 12th Jan. We just found out on Monday that the tenant vacated on the 24th. Apparently our property managers emailed me on the 8th of Dec to advise the change of date but I didn't receive it (they had the email address wrong and they apparently didn't get a bounced back email). So now we're stuck with 3 weeks less rent we thought we'd be receiving. Pissed off much! If we'd known, we would have arranged to move earlier too! So I get to look forward to packing and unpacking over the next couple of weeks. I hate moving. Sincerley.

Anyway, goals, resolutions, aspirations for 2009 - here's mine:

  • Hit the 87's for 1st Bandiversary on 19th March

  • 85kgs for my birthday (1st June)

  • 70's for Christmas 2009

  • Run for more than 2mins

  • Exercise at least 4 times a week

  • Restart group classes at gym (combat, pump, rpm)

  • Try yoga or pilates at work

  • Pay off personal loan

  • Save for wedding

  • Not buy 300 dvds in Thailand or Bali

  • Organise the best wedding ever.

Hope everyone indulges in a glass of bubbly tonight to bring in the new year! I know I will be!

Em :)
