3 trillion things to do in this house..


I have gone the whole total neglect today and ran around the shops ... food nothing exciting .. whipped this up tonight.. cause i just love the pic!!!!!!!

the story beind the pic..


the face has gotten fatter the arse can definately be seen as that as a scrapbooker.. my goal this year is to loose weight i weigh 66 kgs... i am hoping to get down to 52kg...might be a long shot but i have a year to get it together.. i have been starting my journey in the running dept .. apart from feeling like i am going to pass out.. im getting there.. slowly.. today i did pump .. i thought my arms were going to drop off.. rofl...

i have also started the south beach diet seems like a really sensible one.. no carbs for the 1st 2 weeks.. a few of my friends really love this diet.. i cant wait for the biggest looser to come back on .. it always inspires me..

so the eating side and the diet is probly a really big struggle if i could sleep through it all im sure id get it right.. each day i promise myself to be tougher... hopefully the cottage cheese and celery sticks will heap with the chocolate cravings.. lol

not much happening on the scrapping front. im teaching up at just scrap booking tomorow.. and i have a few design team pages to finish off. ... i love being on design teams... so much fun to know a criteria before hand...

some shots of the girls.. these two are like chalk and cheese..when the 2 are happy getting along they have a heap of fun... watch out when the 2 of them are tired and are in the same room...

Sasha is one of my besties.. i see her a heap.. and she lives round the corner.. we are both dieting and exercising.. shes hard work .. i busted her when we were out with all the kids for dinner this even stealing one of the lil ones chips.............. she is so going on the naughty board for this one..

i love the pic of her eating rileys feet.. just to amuse him and stop him from crying... to cute hay!!
