Gym

image I started going to the gym for over 2 months now. I must say I’m feeling great! It didnt help me to lose weight but tone up my body especially my flabby thighs. Recently I asked hub if we could get a treadmill at home because I am paying $66 per fortnight to Fitness First. By 10 months, i could have owned¬†the treadmill and continue using it at home.

I have my reasons why..
– cheaper for longterm usage
– dont need to wake up at 5.30am for the gym
– dont need to lug changing clothes all the way to the city gym. Heavy la!
Рdont need to wash my hair twice  a day! Рcant do 5 or more days a week due to all the above reasons.

Why I love gym..
– enjoy the classes! So far have been to cxworx, bodypump, body combat, body attack. Body pump is my fave! A must every Thurs.
– enjoy jogging running on the treadmill with all the gym junkies so i could look like im one of them
– free newspaper cheapskate!
– keep me healthy and fit of cos – so i could eat more

Hub’s reply was no. He rather i go to the gym cos he reckon i have this “3 sec hot temperature” direct translation from cantonese. Well he could be right… or WRONG! We’ll see.. So for now, i will still be going to the gym 3 times a week and occassionally over the weekends if we dont have plans. Sometimes I will just run in the park while Isaac riding on his scooter. We do high 5 when we cross path as our motivation.

Watkins Family Farm

Last year around this time, we went for our first mandarin picking at Ford’s Farm Wisemanferry. This year they are closed cos all the fruits were gone so we went to Watkins Family Farm instead.

Love the scenery on our way there.

image

Makes me miss the time when we drove from Sydney > Canberra > Albury > Melbourne many years back. I love the blue sky in Australia. So blue too blue to be true.. ;)

image

We are driving along the Hawksbury River.
image

Australia is indeed a beautiful country!!! Give me this view anytime over the beach.

image

I asked him to get me the biggest and juiciest mandarin!

image

image

Here’s our pick! Two buckets full of mandarin for $10 per bucket. We manage to fill up 6kgs of mandarin in a bucket. Win!

27 June, Saturday

image

We hardly go to the city on Saturday unless it’s absolutely neccessary. Taking the advantage of family sunday funday $2.50 fare usually. So we had a reason to go on last Sat and so we went by bus. Isaac prefers the bus over train so bus it is.

There was a Lego exhibition going on at Town Hall. We didnt go in as it was quite overpriced. And Isaac is happy with just a photo with this Lego character.

We had our lunch at the Waterfront Grill which is just in front of the ferris wheel.

image

Nah! The view from our table.

Prawn and squid in a pot serve with sour dough. Lately I am addicted to bread. Never used to like it. Now i love it!

image

300gm eye fillet for hubby.. he loves it and it was cooked the way he likes it that it medium.

image

This boring fish and chips is for mini me of cos!

image

The boys went on the Star of the Show without me as I was too full after lunch and didnt want to risk throwing up in the air ;)

image

Making funny faces, just because.. partner in crime sometimes.

image

Also went to Darling Quarter. The last time we were there, Isaac couldnt climb up. Not even with the rope. He would be so frustrated and in tears kept saying “i cannot i cannot…”. Now he climbs like a champion. His gross motor skills has improved tremendously.

image

His day has to end with a bit of a water play and gelato (didnt take pic).

My 34th

image

Celebrated my 34th on Tuesday. I noticed a few new fine lines on my forehead, appearance of laugh lines, dark eye circles plus wrinkles. Not something that I like but have learnt to accept that I’ll be aging gracefully!

My colleague decorated my desk which was really lovely. Not only that, they also planned for a surprise morning tea and gave me a travel wallet. Just what I want for my next holiday.

Hub came to the city to have lunch with my despite the rain.

Ended the day with a birthday song, cake and a card from Isaac.

Queen’s Birthday 2015

It was a Monday and we were home bounded after a weekend full of excitement. I hit the gym for body attack class, came home around 10.45am, load the bike and scooter in the boot and off we drove to the park.

Just myself and Isaac.

image

The weather was absolutely beautiful! Clear blue sky. The park was crowded. People were doing BBQ, riding the bike/scooter, playing soccer/basketball, running around, etc. I got a spot and get myself ready for sunbathing :) Needed the vitamin D!!!

Isaac bumped into his school mate and they hit off while I watched them chasing each other with their bike & scooter.

Little things like that makes my baby really happy. Love to do this more often!
