Harden Up Cupcake!!

Hump day arrived today and I was super excited about going to see Kelli and to see how much my weeks worth of hard work had paid off...

Ok.... so first I should let you know I am definitely not one to show emotion in public... I may throw things in my own home... ok and occasionally the gym... ohhhh ok and very very very rarely small hissy fits happen at work..but face to face with anyone other than Hubby and Tank.. well I tend to just do the whole brave face thing and save the tantrums and tears for my two boys...

So when I actually cried in front of Kelli today it sort of proved how dismally disappointed I was with my 0.4mils loss.... which from memory.. came from my hump.... only my hump... how can pedalling your life away on a spin cycle make the goo come off your hump.... I know it was appropriate seeing as it was hump day and all.. but 0.4........ I was a sook... my stomach goo is exactly the same as last week... E.X.A.C.T.L.Y... so I cried... how pathetic...

Now I still threw the obligatory tantrum once I was in the car with poor Hubby.. and yes the stupid man did do the whole logical, truthful, helpful thing again... but even Hubby realised that today I would not accept any of his help... I was engrossed in my pittifullness...

I did a fantastic impression of a spoilt princess cupcake all the way home... and duringthe meal preparation for tonight and tomorrow... 0.4mils ohhhh myyyyyyy godddddddddd how bloody pathetic!!!!!!!!

Of course I have now slapped myself around the head... had a great giggle with the help of the evil Julie who really does know how to make me smile... even when she is being a total wench... which is probably why we get on so well... two crazy Kiwi wenches... lol

ok... deep breath... I am not going to waste any more time or energy on the past week..

I have 25 sleeps and I am not wasting one of them in pity or cupcakedness... hate cupcakes by the way... they are pathetic excuses for a real cakes.... my Mum always made them using left over cake mix from real grown up sized cakes, so I always just see them as left over from a real cake and life is toooooo short to just eat a left over when the whole cake awaits you... metaphorically of course... I do not condole the consumption of whole cakes.. unless you are about to stand on stage next to me..... then hey thats exactly what you should have!!! Whole cakes are the BEST!!! lol

Anyway... after my pathetic tears dripped onto Kellis floor she slapped me about (once again metaphorically of course) showed me how far far ahead of my target numbers I still am, clipped me across the head (Yes still metaphorically.. sorry to disappoint all you who were hoping for a bit of violence in the caliper room) she changed my diet.. increased my reps... showed me again how far ahead of the numbers I am and after all of the above tantrums and sookyness it has finally sunk in...

I am now about to get some posing practice in.. tomorrow it is back to the spin cycle in the morning, weights and slow cardio in the evening and posing afterwards... Yay another week to focus on... another bunch of sleeps to count down... I get to celebrate my Son-In-Laws birthday and my watch Jofus Nofus turn 6 years old!

Which reminds me.. Yesterday lunchtime I had one of those best ever moments in my life when I sat and watched Joseph lay out a card game on the floor at my Mum and Dads place, then he sat in my Dads chair, picked up Dads walking stick and carefully measured to make sure that his Poppa could sit and touch every card with his walking stick so that when Poppa had finished lunch they could play "match the pairs" without Poppa having to try and reach the cards... now moments like that are what life is really all about.....

Well that and JELLY!!! ohhh which I am still allowed but the protein powder is now egg whites... ummm pretty sure that they will not mix well so I get TWO deserts... see life is good!!!!
