Monday Madness

My washing machine came back today – it is still not fixed. Another argument with the technician about it. If they do not fix it tomorrow I am going to complain to Samsung and then get Game to come and fix it. I actually have no more words on this subject!

In other news my wedding dress arrived last week and I took it today to my chief bridesmaid to try it on and so she can store it where David can’t see it :) It is perfect. Makes it a lot more real now!

It also made me realise I need to up my gym training. I have been following the routine from the bio but it is getting boring now and I am stronger and after seeing my fat bulging out of my dress I stepped up my training today. It actually felt good to push myself a little bit. David has an eating plan from the dietician that we are starting from pay day this month so hopefully that will help the cause.

I actually seriously considered entering the 94.7 challenge next year. I have never really done anything remarkable or challenging like that. We are planning to be pregnant this time next year but I could always start training anyway? What do you think? Have you done anything like that, that has pushed you?

When I chatted to my bio about physical fitness goals I mentioned climbing Kili and she said that was a pretty reasonable goal for me – it is something I would like to do but with this stuff not being free cycling the 94.7 seems more easily attainable.

What would you do if you had to choose something that physically challenged you?

    I would train for 94.7 – being a fit pregnant woman is AWESOME and you don’t know for sure that you will be pregnant. There are plenty of races that you may be able to do before that , including the Argus and there’s also one in Knysna that I know of.
    I am trying to work up my nerve to sign up for the Two Oceans half marathon next year. I am SCARED!
    I actually always wanted to run. In fact, I have this vision of travelling and running a marathon where ever I am in the world. Think London marathon, NY marathon – that sort of thing.
    Have also been thinking of triathlons lately – but I’ll see.

    Everybody keeps raving about running and in my head it sounds good until the reality of being hot and sweaty hits :)

    I used to hike in my youth, and I loved it – being fit, seeing nature, etc. These days there would be a camera involved too :) :)

    YAY on the dress!!!!

    If i had the money – climb Kili, without a doubt. And do the Machu Pichu hiking trail in Peru.
    Yeah on the dress – now do not loose too much weight or you will have a too big wedding dress, like I had way back.

    And another baby – you brave person!

    Hi!! I totally think you should go forward with your training! I’m currently 36 weeks pregnant but you can read about me preparing for my post partum training over at
    I’m from the US but have been living in SA for almost 4 years now and think it is so ah-mazing to finally be finding other mommy bloggers in South Africa! We have a beautiful culture and country to blog about here!
    Good luck!

    I love that you have up your training and that you do have fitness goals.
    If I had to do something that physical challenge me, then it would be something like lifting heavy weights. Competitions like lifting heavy (the people you saw on the Olympics). Something like that.
