I’m trying to book my flight to Sydney and the Virgin web site is having problems… grrr! I’m also checking out Jetstar although trekking out to Avalon airport doesn’t sound fun.
I think I’ll fly back on the Monday so I have a day to recover (and shop) while I’m in Sydney. Any suggestions, esp funky shops that have different stuff? No point going to Myer in Sydney… or Sportsgirl or Just Jeans or whatever.
In answer to CKK’s question – I’m not sure if my health is worse because of the weight loss. I do know I feel the cold ALL the time now. I can’t remember being cold like this before, not even when I lived in Hobart. Sure sometimes you’d go out and the wind would cut through you, but this is constant. Even inside with two heaters running.
I did get sick a lot when I was overweight. I’d have a cycle where every second or third year, I’d get every bug going around.
I really don’t think smoking helps either. I’m quitting in August – my doctor and I had a talk. She wants to put me on tablets that stop the cravings. I know I need to quit before I do a half marathon – after all you can’t stop for a cig break half way (although I did see a few walkers on the Mother’s Day Classic with cigarettes – tsk, tsk).
Partly because of the plan to quit the fags, I’m really thinking of dropping my goal weight to 60-65 kgs (from 70). I still want to lose the fat from my belly – stubborn lard that it is – and I also want to have some leeway because when you quit, your metabolism slows down.
I’ve got a few questions for ex-smokers about quitting: what do you do at work when you’re bored? And, say you are at party and people are bugging you – what do you do if you can’t go out for a smoke? Surely it’s rude to say to your friends “let’s go outside and bitch aboutthese annoying people”?
