Time goes by so fast.

Where does the time go. I didn't think it had been that long since my last post..but it has. At lot has happened this month..
* My eldest daughter Lateisha had her 14th birthday
* I have just about finished another month of Bootcamp
* Glenn and i managed to get 90% of our Christmas shopping done in 2 days
* I'm about to be draged out to the boxing day sales.....this will be my first time...
and Christmas will be forgotten about in a week

Well i hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day..
We spent Christmas Eve with the Glenn's family. We had a greate day eating, swimming, eating, swimming, eating a little more & kids swimming a little more until we all complain that we have eaten to much and are water logged.
All I can say is bring on January Bootcamp because after what i have eaten over the last 24hrs, i think im going to need a very good work out.
We had bring a friend day on Saturday at Suttons Beach. I am so glad we dont do it on the beach all the time... I was so glad when Glenn said he would come along to see what i have learnt to love so much. He did enjoy it and i managed to hold my own and not make a fool of myself . I knew he would do well as he has a pretty active job, but i think he forgot how i felt in my first week way back in November... I felt like i had been hit by a truck - I could feel every muscle i forgot that i had and the second day after your first is always the best...haha. Sorry I can't stop laughing.....Glenn is sooooo sore and wouldn't make any sudden moves and wasn't in a hurry at all today...but in the end he did say he liked it... He said he still wont give my any sympothy as its all self -inflicted.

Starting Bootcamp was the best thing i did. I was close to lighting up again as my easy fix to loosing the extra weight i gained after i quit smoking , so now if you ask me if i want a smoke or want to go for a jog....the jog wins every if you don't find me scrapbooking you will find me in the gym/bootcamp.

Speaking of scrapbooking, i would like to share a layout i did after we got back from holidays in October. You cant rush these things.

This is one of the rare family photo's now that the girls are getting older and it is no longer cool to be seen with us.. I hope you like...I hope to get a few pages done over the next week while i'm on holidays....fingers crossed.

I hope you all enjoy the holidays and have a safe and Happy New Year...See you in 2007

Hooyah.....we did it...we survived Bootcamp
If you had asked me 4 weeks ago to name any of the people in the photo i would have said "Yeh right", and today when i was showing Glenn the pics i had taken i was happy with myself that i could name everybody... these have been my new friends 3 mornings a week for the past 4 weeks, while we all try our best to get fit. Some have had some great results Steve(middle-top of tyre) lost 10kgs, with a few of the girls having great results loosing up to 6kgs, but what we all got out of it the most was improved fitness and the pleasure of making new friends. I must say the funniest person i have met in a long time is Jo (middle-bottom of tyre) and just because she is hidding, Jamie needs a mention as well. My fitness partner in crime is Kylie (front left) We have very similar fitness level and found it easy to push each other that little bit harder.
Now if you ask me do push ups on my toes, grunts or go for a 40minute run, i am happy to join in. (Well maybe not to happy to do the grunts.)
For the past weeks these guys have brought out the best and the worst in all of us, and the best this is that most of us are coming back for more in December.
You do grow to like them after the first week.
