Counting down the days!!!!

Geez I'm hanging out for a holiday! I don't think I have ever left it this long without having a proper break and its killing me!

Had a sickie on Monday as I was feeling like death, after a manic week last week I think I got a little run down. After my Japan flight I ended up getting stranded in Townsville as our aircraft broke down. So I hadn't slept, was in my smelly uniform with everyone staring at me as I'm trying not to fall asleep in the airport lounge (not a good look in Qantas uniform). So anyway only got an hours sleep in total and I wasn't a happy camper! Then I had to be back at work in the gym the next day, not good. So anyway I survived (sort of) and made it to the weekend where I decided getting pissed and eating heaps of crap would make me feel better, didn't really work but the good news is I've had a great week this week, eating clean and training hard!

I'm just kinda at the point now where I'm happy to go to Thailand looking however as I am just so excited about getting married and having a big holiday with our family and friends. So I've just been trying to limit the social functions as there seems to be so many at the moment and I just really can't be bothered. Piked out on two functions last night and went to bed at 8:30 instead. Feeling heaps better for it and just went for a 50min run and 40min beach walk, now its breaky time!

Having quite a few ups and downs at the moment as I'm struggling with working so much and really need to make some serious changes next year as I'm just getting burnt out. But I don't really want to make any decisions just yet as I know after a good holiday I will have a better perspective on things!

Have posted some pics, the one of me and Cam is at the gym Chrissy Party, oh nearly forgot to mention the gym I work at "City Fitness" just won Queensland Fitness Facility of the year (pretty cool!). The other two pics of me are taken out the front of our place in Mackay, loving living on the beach!

Anyway better go, lots to do as usual.

Lots of love Hilds

Getting so so excited!

Well here I am sitting back in Japan, it feels like forever since I've been here! I think my last trip must have been back in August. So I'm just using my day here to get super organised for the wedding.
We still or should I say I still have so much organising to do, wedding planning definitely isn't a favourite thing for men to get involved in. Cam is just now starting to get excited, its so funny I get excited so far out where as it isn't until Cam is sitting on the airplane that he seems to get excited. So for him to seem excited this far out is a very good sign, he he. It was funny as on the weekend he was trying to explain our travel/wedding plans to his Mum who lives in Thailand and he really had no idea! I had to get on the phone and explain where we were going to be when. I'm glad we are not having a big flash wedding as I can imagine it would be an absolute nightmare to organise.

I'm very excited that we have decided to do exactly what we want. We have about 20 or so family and friends heading over to Phi Phi Island Thailand for our wedding. The day will be very casual and hopefully lots and lots of fun. The plan is that we will be getting picked up by speedboats from Phi Phi and taken to Bamboo Island where they will have set up for the ceremony as it will be much quieter over there. After all the formal stuff its straight into champagne on the beach and back on the boats to go to the Coconut Beach Bar for lots of Cocktails, food and dancing. We have no formal dinner, speeches cake or anything (we sound slack, dont we!), but we just didn't want anything formal coz its just not us!

So anyway just need to finalise all the little things and better book some flights soon. So 6 weeks from today I'll be getting ready to get married, oh how exciting. So another 5 weeks until we fly out. So I'm still training hard and slowly getting there. I've really tightened up my nutrition for the next three weeks while I don't have too much stuff on. Its been pretty hard with all the Chrissy parties and stuff but I've just been doing the best I can. I'm feeling pretty good at the moment but just need to really tighten things up for the next couple of weeks.

I'll be flying all over Christmas and have a 5 day trip starting 5am Chrissy morning. So I know that week will be tough as I always struggle after early starts and especially 5 in a row plus trying to fit in a bit of Chrissy celebrations. So I won't be home for Christmas but wasn't too fazed this year as I start my holidays on the 31st of December. The good news is I will be flying in to Adelaide on Boxing day and will be able to catch up with all the family (as tired as I will be!). So I'm being a very good girl at the moment as I know that Chrissy will be hard and I'm running out of time. Although in saying that I'm pretty happy with where I am at and should be feeling even better by the time we fly out. Will post some progress pics when I get some time to download some pics.

Anyway enough rambling for one post. Sorry for my lack of posting life is just a little frantic as usual and we have only just got broadband on (dialup isn't much fun!).

Well bye for now better try and rest up as I'm flying throughout the night and not used to that anymore, don't think I'll be a happy camper tomorrow.

Cheers Hilds
