Giveaway and Ramblings

First of all, a big thank you to everyone for their kind words and advice on my wedding makeup trial.. I loved it at the time and my stupid head was starting to get to me, so thank you for making it go away! :)

Secondly... the GIVEAWAY is ending tonight, so get your entry in. I swear it takes two seconds (ok not literally two seconds, but it's quick and easy - like a frozen pie) and at the moment there is only one entry so your chances of a FREE blu-ray are pretty darn high if you ask me. Enter now by clicking here.

Now on to my ramblings...

A left me on Sunday. Not left left me, but left me to live in Melbourne for a few months. I was pretty good at the airport until he was going on to the plane and I couldn't stop hugging him, I kept making him go to the back of the line and when I looked over his shoulder I saw a lady smiling at us, that was it.... the crying started!! It hit me- I won't be on this adventure with him! It's hard, but I'm proud of him and happy for him.

Since A has been gone though, I have not been sleeping well at all. Night 1 - scary scary nightmare. Nights 2 & 3 - restless sleeps and Night 4 - another nightmare.


 I thought I would be in starfish heaven having our huge lush bed all to myself, but damn it I can't freaking sleep!!

I had a weight gain this week, but that was expected it was the "monthly gain".

Despite my gain, yesterday was still an awesome day, because I did two things I previously thought were impossible....

I ran for 26minutes straight without stopping (remember my previous celebration of 20 minutes?)


I finally did a pole dancing trick, the upside down V that I have been trying to do for FOR-EVER!

oKK.. so I still haven't perfected it and my hips need to be up higher, I need to have more strength in my landing and stop sliding, but the last one's the poles fault lol and it is only the third time right here, I just took the video to show my friend who didn't believe me. You can here my excitement at the end :P

What's everyone got planned for the weekend?

I am off to see Anh Do tomorrow night, but that's about it for this weekend..... I'm keeping it low key before I head off to Melbourne next weekend (yaaahooooo!)

Here's a funny heading in to Friday... I saw it on FB.


  1. Awww you will get used to not sleeping with him. Try different techniques, read before bed or something and already be in happy dream land.

    Your V is awesome! I don't know why you worry so much about what the scales are telling you when it's obvious you have incredible legs and are able to do amazing things with them. Are you doing measurements? focus on those.

    And I haven't entered your giveaway because I don't have a blu-ray player, seemed silly to win something I can't use! Sorry x

    1. actually maybe it's because I usually speak to him before bed? hmmm... thanks hun! Measurements are in week 8... so next week I will be doing them.

      That's very nice and honest of you! :) No need to apologise x

  2. You'll get used to A being away, it took me a good couple of weeks before I could sleep properly without FH and now you can't get me out of bed. Just occupy yourself with the gym, the wedding, your friends and you'll surprise yourself at how well you'll adapt without him. Good luck.

  3. Awwww :( you are a very supportive Fiance!

    You will get used to sleeping without him, then it will be nightmare heaven.. You could always get a puppy to hug at night ;)

    Only a week till you get to go to Melbourne woooo!!

    Nice work on getting the move! and the 26 min run! you are a machine!
