date night

Another fun date night to report on! These photos were taken last Tuesday, we didnt go very far - just a small greek restaurant in our neighbourhood. It was pouring down with rain so we ended up taking outfit photos in the hall-way of our apartment (lucky no one else walked passed at the time).

The dress I wore is actually a recent addition to my wardrobe - I picked it up at a Clothes Swap Party that I recently attended. I wore this dress to work today too, and I think it just passed for being a suitable length to wear around children. I wore it with thick tights and flats and remembered not
to bend over or sit on the carpet.

I went to my doctor last Friday and was told that I have high cholesterol. Obviously I was not impressed. I haven't been very happy with my body for some now and finding out about having high cholesterol really make me snap. So.... I've started excercising daily (something I never ever did). I walked 7km on Saturday and have started walking to and from work this week. My work is exactly 3km from my house so some days I will walk there and walk back, and other days I'll get Scott to drop me off in the morning and i'll walk home. Up until Friday I was a serial snacker..... and I'll have to admit I didn't choose to best things to snack on, so I've changed my entire diet. I'm trying to eat 6 times a day - small and super healthy meals/snacks.

We will be going to Europe on the 29th of July, for a month, so that is my personal deadline - to lower my cholesterol below 5, to loose 5 kgs, and the pudge that I have been carrying around my stomach. I'll keep you posted on my progess, promsie xx.
