W21 D3 - No progress. Did you really expect any?

Lots of shoulder pain getting worse. Need to see doctor again. Frantically busy with work. No progress.

W20 D3 - discouraged

I really don't like writing here at the moment, I feel it is full of excuses and fails and no progress. But here we go:

I went to Zumba on Friday and it seemed a lot better than the first time I tried it, weeks ago. It was very new then, and Friday's instructor was much more experienced. I am as unfit as I have ever been, with my current weight and no exercise for weeks, so I found it exhausting but enjoyed it.

Sunday, my next scheduled class, was skipped because of PMS. And I slept in.

Then on Monday, I forgot to book Aiden into creche and it was full so I couldn't go even though I was in my gear and everything.

My plan was to exercise Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun, so tomorrow would be next but it is my turn to be the parent helper at Aiden's early pre-school. So I should have walked today. But it was raining. Well, it had rained all night, and looked threatening... But more importantly I started coughing up phlegm this morning and I feel pretty bleurg. I refuse to get sick AGAIN damnit. Too late.

W19 D4 - All better!

Ok, I think I am finally all better! Yay. It only took about 7 weeks...

Just spend the past 5 days on holidays (my husband could only get 3 days off, plus the weekend). Saturday: kids birthday party, drive to Sydney, lovely dinner out, my brother-in-law's engagement party. Sunday: breakfast in a cafe, kids play on the beach (overcast and cool, but lovely), visit father-in-law, lunch with cousins, park with the kids (now sunny), dinner with brother-in-law and his new fiancee. Monday: train into city, Sydney Aquarium, cafe, walk through the rain to our favorite bookshop in the world (Galaxy - it specialises in fantasy and sci-fi), train back to car, drive to my mum's for dinner. Tuesday: car, bus, train, ferry, bus up the hill to Taronga Zoo! Then ferry, train, bus, car back to mum's for dinner. Wednesday: mum plays with the kids while Tim and I start on our stack of new books, then we drive home to Canberra (about 4 hours).

Had a lovely time, but it is great to be home again. And with my own bed! The hotel beds and the futon at mum's were horrible.

Best of all, I have been well for the whole time. Ready to get back into fitness. 7 weeks until Christmas - not long, but I can make a start.
