Guess where Samyson is???

He is performing on stage with Roger Waters - THE Roger Waters from Pink Floyd.

16 of the Variety Voices kids were selected to do backing for "Another Brick in the Wall".

Not sure who is most excited, the kids or the parents. It is such a huge opportunity to perform with Roger Waters at the Vector Arena in front of a sellout crowd of $10,000!!

Day 4

Well so far so good. I don't think I will win prizes for the most dedicated but I have made a positive start. I think just having to actually commit to recording what I eat makes me more aware  of what I am putting in my gob - and how much. Portion size is a biggie and I definately don't need as much as I have been eating.

Last night was dinner from the Glenfield night markets & I had much smaller portions than what I would usually have - although I am sure I still overate. Tonight is roast pork with roasted baby carrots & beets, I will do potatoes for the others & maybe a bit of kumara for me.

I am back at work today, I & G are away so I have to provide my own lunch & snacks for 3 days, easy to keep on track although when they get back it will just be salads etc for lunch anyway, I will need to watch portion sizes but that is about it.

Samyson has completed week 1 of CCMT Emerging Talent, loves it & seems to be getting heaps out of it. They have open mic night tomorrow where the students can perform a song, dance or monologue in front of the other students, the tutors & the parents. Samyson is doing Christina Aguilera's Bound to You - I am looking forward to it.

Siobhan & I got to spend the week together last week, it was nice hanging out with just the 2 of us, we had a couple of days where we were quite busy & a couple just blobbing at home, we did baking, went to lunch, went shopping (including the dreaded bra shopping).

I got stuck into work this morning but have to confess to waning a little this afternoon, typically the weather is gorgeous today & I am stuck in the office. Oh well best get back to is.

This is now going to be a weight loss blog.

I went bra shopping today, lets just say it was NOT a pleasant experience it was all I could do not to burst into tears - talk about a reality check, actually reality pretty much slapped me hard!!

I am back at work next week so first on the list will be going back to the gym. I also need to overhaul my diet, way too much crap has snuck in (who am I kidding the crap forms a large part of my overall diet), portion sizes need to be significantly reduced and the wine consumption needs to get back under control.

Hmmm easy to say but actually doing it for more than 5 minutes is the challenge. I am not starting tomorrow or Monday - I started the second I left the Bendon shop holding back the tears of disgust that I have let myself get so damn FAT!!!

Now off to search the iphone apps for a free food diary.
