And not in a good way! Generally my 15 minute drive home is uneventful and has been for the last year and a half. That is, until Tuesday. I was stopped in traffic just minding my own business and deciding what to cook for dinner for the tribe when BAM! I was hit from behind and slammed into the car in front of me. Un-freakin-believable! This old codger couldn't even speak english! The back of the people mover is banged up pretty bad and there is some minor damage to the front of the car(I won't know the extent of the damage until Monday when the smash repairs assess it for the insurance company). I ended up with a sore pelvis which is all bruised up from the seatbelt and my shoulder is sore as I had my hand on the steering wheel and ended up jarring it from the impact.

Then I find while getting checked out that I have about a 7cm gab between my abdominal muscles with a slight hernia. I am looking to get this operated on(and be rid of the loose apron skin from 5 pregnancies). Before I do this, I am aiming to lose 10kg and land myself around the 70kg mark. This will really be what gets me motivated to lose the rest of the weight now. I've lost 20kg since this time last year and I really only want to lost the next 10kg and be close to my goal weight.

I've been trying to think of ways to keep me motivated and I think I may blog more into my weight loss blog and take pictures of what I am eating each day to keep me accountable. I'll have to get that organised soon and post the link so you can all give me a virtual kick up the butt when I need one!

Until then, this was dinner tonight. Rice paper rolls with spinach, rice noodles, grilled chicken and carrot. I only ended up eating 3.5 of them before I was full.

These are super popular with the kids, they are great for lunch boxes too. It's a good way to use up any leftovers as well.


  1. Sounds like things are not going your way and I hope you get better soon. Great work on the weight loss so far. I am also trying to loose some weight!

  2. Hello! I would like to open cosmetology salon. Do you have an experience in this business? There are too many options in beauty salon equipment. Could you give me an advise? What companies are more reliable to buy facial laser acne treatment and ultrasound skin tightening machine?
