Easy come, easy go

Well I put on 300g this week. Which I think should have been impossible given my band has been super tight and I've been PBing and having night  reflux all bloody week! I'm not sure if it's related but I went off the pill a couple of weeks ago. It's the first time I've been off it since I was 16! I wondering if my hormones have gone all nuts because of it because for the past week I've felt bloated like I was going to get my period and the PB/night reflux is also something I would normally have around period time but no period has eventuated. Do you think I've used the word period enough in that sentence? Well I won't use it again. Period. I've also been backed up all week, something which I just took care of at work unfortunately post weighin. And that concludes this week's Too Much Information blog paragraph.

If all the night reflux doesn't settle down over the weekend I think I'll have to get some fill removed. Pooey.

Baxter started Puppy kindy last night and he was a little superstar! Then he turned into a devil dog at bedtime and proceeded to hump Westie's bed for a good 15mins whilst looking at himself in the mirror. It was farking horrific. In the end I put him on our bed to settle him down to sleep. And this morning I awoke to find 2 turds & 2 pee stains on the carpet in our activity room. Little bastard. When he's there just with Westie, he does his business outside no probs, we never come home to any accidents. But when we're home he seems to think he has free reign to do it wherever he pleases. Grrrrr ... Fricken puppies.

Wedding wise, things are coming together and the bills are coming in thick and fast! I got pissed off at one of our friends though and this is why. We sent out Save the Date's about a year ago with the date of the wedding and venue. Then the formal invitations went out first week of January with an RSVP date of 5th Feb. At the beginning of Feb, GB sent this friend of ours (as well as a few others) a reminder that the RSVP was due on the 5th. Said friend calls us on the 5th when we were driving back from Geraldton with Baxter asking "when do we actually have to have RSVP numbers finalised because he'd like to come but he has soccer, his kids etc to organise so he's not sure if he can do it blah blah blah". Sorry, but 1 year isn't enough time to sort your shit out? Caught off guard we say the 20th. Then last week I thought screw it, he's had ample time so I told him I needed numbers on the 11th and he says he's sorry but can't come. Which is fine. Which also would have been fine if he said it by the 5th of Feb. I can't believe he wanted more time! People from overseas and eastern states have enough time to RSVP on time! Farker!!! End vent.

Got my final wedding dress fitting on Monday, had hair and makeup trials Tuesday just gone. GB is going to see the DJ in Bunbury tomorrow. Still have a heap of smaller things to do but I think we're on track.

Still doing the Couch to 5k program. Started Week 3 this week. On Monday GB and I did our normal 5km lunch walk as 60 second run/walk intervals. It was really humid and it's so hilly I thought I might actually die, but I got through it! Although had to have 90 second walk breaks up the hills!

Big thanks to Sally too for nominating me for a Beautiful Blogger Award! There are pay it forward rules that come with it so will give it some thought and try to post them over the weekend sometime.

Anyhoo, best be doing some work!

Em :)

PS - Forgot to put in my NSV this week. I needed new 3/4 workout trackies so went to Target as they had 20% off. Walked out with size 12 and they fit thank you very much! mwah ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


  1. Oh you brat!! 12s? .......ok I gotta say it.. FRIGGING WELL DONE!!!!!! Whoooooo
    Sounds like the lead up to the wedding is...well, just like every wedding around - a major pain in the patooie!! Don't know why the buggers just wont flow like you need them too, thus giving us less stress.. but NO.. they have to be as hard as possible so we are raving lunatics by the time the day comes.
    Male dogs huh! Such fun,.... not.. I remember when Max was a puppish size - I must have gone through about 6 pillows in a year.. he kept humping them.. and oh... blech. NO thanks lol! Hope Baxter stops that soon.. no fun.

  2. I wish I were a quarter as far along as you are with the wedding planning. Thankfully, mine is in July. But we have no good churches in this area (and we both want a church wedding--I've been trying to figure out a good church to use since this time last year). Frustrating!

    Your first paragraph cracked me up by the way. :)

  3. Sorry to hear about the small gain and what the hell is your band doing...and mine too for that matter??? Did they meet up and decide to terrorise us??? How rude that someone (I assume he is a friend???) would put soccer before your wedding.....I am glad it is all going well and sorry to hear about baxter...sounds like he is testing you. Oh and you are so welcome about the award. I will never forget how finding your blog made me feel and how many friends I have made through my rock

  4. Hey Em!

    I know exactly what you mean about RSVPs!!! Grrrr! We had the same at our wedding. People didn't bother to RSVP and other people in conversation would tell us that they were coming. We would then have to call them to see if they actually were. Very frustrating!

    Friends of mine have just come back from Eratap AND LOVED IT! Best holiday they have ever had. You guys will have a great relaxing time after the stresses of the wedding.


    OH and congrats on the 12's too! You rock!!!!!!!

  5. Hey Em!

    Thanks for your comment and advice. Much appreciated. I will have to do my best to stop when I'm not hungry and not when full. Nights have always been my weakness.

    The base on the pizza is flatbread (lavash) which I have doubled over. I love the Hot Rocks brand which I buy from our local IGA. Not as doughy as others.
