First Quiz for the Term – Aaarrrrgghhh!!!!

I have my first online quiz for uni tomorrow. 30 mins and you only get one attempt at it. Not sure how I am going to go with this but fingers crossed all is good. I really want to get a good grade for this subject, but reading previous students comments in our forums everyone was marked quite harshly last term. I am worried now that I don’t have enough time to do a decent job this term.

Res School is coming up also and I haven’t prepared anything for that yet. Need to get a move on and really start figuring out what I need to get done.


Lord give me the STRENGTH

My eldest son just seems to keep lying to me and my husband. I know they aren’t really big lies at the moment but I fear if I can’t get through to him that I don’t like, will not tolerate lying in our house – he is going to end up lying about everything to us throughout his life. I don’t want that for my family, I want the open, loving, supportive, honest household I wanted when I was growing up.

At the moment his lies are about his lunch and who has been eating it, we keep trying to get him to understand that we make his lunch for him to eat, and not to be wasted.

(Ok some people may think this is such a trivial subject, but for my husband and I we work so hard to be able to afford to feed, clothe and look after our children, we don’t want to see our hard work go to waste)

He also lies about little nasty things he does to his younger bother, I know boys will be boys, but sometimes the things he does is really mean. When his younger brother was just one he held him under the water in the bathtub when I left the room to go and get the dry towels. Just sneaking little nasty things.

These thing could all part of his growing up, or they could be something else. I just don’t know and that’s what has me worried, and I just don’t know how to get through to him.

(Yes I know he is only young but he is 7 and if I don’t try and remind him of what I have been teaching him how will I do it later)


Michelle Bridges – 12WBT Program

In order to get myself back on track and into the healthy life I want, I have signed up to be a part of this program by Michelle Bridges.

So for 12 weeks starting on May 5th I will be eating only the set meals Michelle has given me and also exercising every single day using the workouts suggested and supplied by Michelle. My hope is to lose at least 15kg by the 12 weeks.

I am going to have to use self control and stop myself, realise the moments when I am about to self sabotage and act quickly. I will need to give up all my previous excuses and just work my ass off to achieve my goals. I also know that to be successful I am going to have to learn the art of Sunday food prep day!! Our lives get so hectic and sometimes we are too tired to cook so having some already made meals will be fantastic and help keep me on track.

To keep me accountable I am going to try and post a weekly debrief of my weeks, with food pictures and my exercise logs to keep me motivated and on track.

Can’t wait to see the results.
