Socialising and the Band

I love my band... It is truely the best thing I could have done for myself. I've got a day of socialising today... Brunch with a girlfriend in the morning and then coffee and cake in the afternoon with some other girlfriends.

So I went to brunch this morning, and was a little worried about what to order. I'm also on a bit of a budget at the moment (with the wedding coming up!) so I only had $10 to spend, which is actually all I really need cos I don't eat much! I ordered a coffee and a slice of Banana bread. I drank the coffee and managed 1/4 of the bread. My friend asked me if the bread was OK as she was concerned that I hadn't eaten much. I said that it was too "Banana-ery" for me. I don't like the taste of banana, but I like banana bread... so I have a good excuse there. I probably had 200 cals if that!

I've come home and have had a bowl of popcorn and now I'm FULL! I have some left over sashimi in the fridge which I might have a little later if I feel like it. This afternoon I have a coffee/cake session with some friends. I can't do cake very well... although Cheese Cake goes down very very easily. I'm actually going to allow myself a slice of cake and a coffee, and plan to go for a walk/run later this evening. I'm also having a very very small meal of 1 sausage (more like half a sausage!), a corn on the cob (although I doubt I'll have more than a few mouthfuls) and some salad. I'm coping more with the veges these days, which I am LOVING... there is nothing like steamed fresh veges...

Since I've got just over 1 month now until the wedding I've decided to go back to Celebrity Slim. I'm going to have a shake for Breakfast and Lunch, protein snacks in between if I feel like it (ie tuna cans, nuts, cheese, ham, chicken, cup-a-soup) and then a proper meal in the evening, but with no carbs such as potato, rice, pasta or bread. Good thing is, is that the only carb I can actually manage is rice, and I hate making it! I'm also going to step up the exercise a little as well.

This week my exercise plans are as follows:
Monday: Spin Class 45 mins
Tuesday: Abs Butts and Thighs Class (lunch time - 45 mins) and then a treadmill session in the evening 45mins
Wednesday: Core Class and treadmill session 45 mins + 30 mins
Thursday: Body Jam 60 mins
Friday: 1 hour walk 60 mins
Saturday: Spin Class and Pump Class 45 mins and 60 mins
Sunday: Rest Day

Total exercise time 7 hours 15 mins... AWESOME!

Peace out!

Congratulations on doing the Mother's Day Classic - walk is fine - but can't wait to hear that you've run it.

I'm feeling a little exhausted reading your exercise schedule, but slightly envious too. Mine isn't that intense yet, but I'll get there.

I'm just curious - what are you doing about catering for the wedding?
