Is it all connected????

So here I sit trying so damn hard to be witty and clever in my next blog and.....

nothing....

ummm hang on...

Nope..... NOT . A . THING!

Is it because everything inside me is connected? How can I possibly be witty when my tummy is constantly rumbling, for a start the noise stops me from hearing myself think...

Soooo yes the pre-contest-less-than-three-weeks diet in now in force and I am as hungry as a hungry thing at hungry time.... constantly....Hey did I mention I am hungry???

Ok so here we go trying to forget all about the hungriness.... deep breath...

Trained Hammies this morning and managed 20 mins of cardio before my stomach stopped my legs from moving and made me get of the treadmill and head to wards my home and the kitchen...

The pre-contest phase is definitely kicking in with the dogs once again turning their noses up at what I am eating and looking at me with pity on their doggy faces, I am sure that Tank even snickered last night at my dinner of egg whites and beans... Hell Smacko's smell good... has anyone else ever noticed how GOOD Smackos doggy treats smell???? Damn back onto the food subject again... sorry....

The great thing about this pre-contest phase is the ability to find things to take your mind off the fact that your stomach is trying to eat yourself... My house becomes sparkly (well as sparkly as it gets with Tank and Morgan living here) because I clean to keep busy and to stop my stomach from telling my feet to walk into the kitchen ad then my hands to find whatever is edible... damn back at the food thing again... sorry...

gurgle, gulp, gurgle, gulp..

That's me drinking my 6th litre of water to keep myself thinking I am full.... which I am not... damn back there again... sorry...

Ok... so tomorrow we are heading into the big smoke of Brisbane to try on the Aussie Olympia uniform, enter the competition, buy a scooter, some eye make up and more eye lashes...


ohhh the scooter??? No its not my new form of cardio its for Jofus Nofus who is turning the big 5 yes FIVE on Sunday!!! Yay Jofus Nofus!!!!

We are having a family morning tea on Sunday for Josephs birthday and I get to take a plate... which hopefully someone will fill with cake!!!! No sorry... I am taking a plate of food to share... ok so hands up everyone who wants broccoli at a birthday party..... anyone??? someone???? ok so what else could I take.... ohhhhh how about some green tea??? ummmm Tuna???? Come on folks work with me here!!!!!

Yes Sunday morning should be a teeny bit interesting for me, I am sure I will be fine as I would have just had breakfast and my morning tea and they are my biggest meals of the day so that should stop me from pushing over the Lily and stealing her fairy bread - hey she is only 2 and it should be easy, although she is pretty feisty for a 2 year old!

So really that's all I can come up with as now it is time to organise some meals for tomorrow and then dinner.. yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
