Adventure-A-Day April – Excerpt Twelve

*The Adventure Continues*

June 19th 2012
DAY TWELVE!!

Technically day twelve started with us stranded, waiting for the second ferry, but I will kick it off with us boarding the second ferry. It was quite light at 6am when we boarded the second ferry. It probably took us an hour or so to get to mainland Corfu. Even the views coming in to dock were beautiful, filled with old ruins and ports from times of old.

Once we were back on the coach, we made way for camp, Corfu Village. After we settled in to our camp, I took some shots from the balcony. The view from our room was INCREDIBLE.

After working out the bus time tables, we took one into town to try and find a chemist because you can by prescription drugs OVER THE COUNTER. WINNING! All stocked up on medication and throat lozenges, the other girls took off to do some things while I did a spot of shopping. 😛

We caught a cab back to camp because we couldn’t find the bus route going back the other way. 😛

We chilled by the pool and drank a far bit but the evening was pretty relaxing. 🙂 Corfu is like a holiday within a holiday.

Jam packed day tomorrow on George’s Boat. Look Out! 😉

30 Day Photo Challenge – Day Twenty.

Another day has past and another photo challenge completed.

Tonight’s post is going to be a short one due to me beating my running record and I’m absolutely knackered.

Today’s topic was water.  Due to working today and my original idea having to be cancelled, I had to improvise with a lake that isn’t far from the tea rooms.

It isn’t overly pretty but hey, it has water and the reflections of the forest were almost perfect. Take a look.

The water was quite murky so it was hard to try out my polarized lens but I’ll keep trying.

Until tomorrow,

Weekend Adventures

Melbourne Cup Carnival has arrived in Melbourne which only means one thing! LONG WEEKEND! (Okay, not really, it means fashion, parties, drinking, horse racing, betting and a few seedy mornings…)

Today (being Monday) is not an ‘official” public holiday so poor, less forntunate people like myself (who have drawn the short straw) had to work today while the rest of the office soaked up another sleep in. I think I may have taken 3 calls all day. It was a day filled with bordem and facebook bludging. ABSOLUTELY RIVETTING STUFF!!

But… how was my actual weekend?!?

Pretty chill to be frank! Cruised up to Lake Eildon in BeeJayy with Mum and Bear (that’s my puppy) and did absolutely nothing except rake up some freshly mowed grass, wash Bear, drink Strongbow and eat a good old pub made parma!

Well, I did do a 10km walk yesterday with the old parentals. Rotary Victoria had opened up all the old parkland around Lake Eildon and the dam wall so we decided we would relive our past of seeing can can trees and old bush walking adventures. Of course the can can trees were gone but we still talked about them as we walked through the parkland, just as if it was yesterday when we last saw them. Not sure what a can can tree is? Well, it’s just a tree, absolutely any tree, decorated with hundreds of beer and soft drinks cans. It was quite a sight when you were 4 years old and I bet if it was still there, I’d be just as excited. Unfortunately, because they are in fact litter, the cans got got removed but the memories remain. It did great things for my fitness and helping my goal for the month. (Post on that soon; basically a goal of 50km walking/running/jogging for the whole month combined) Unfortunately I had to come home after that because of work today. 😦

Tomorrow sees the actual Melbourne Cup but guess what I’m doing… Yep… Working! A good buddy of mine owns Top of the Range Tearooms on Mount Macedon and needed some help so I offered a helping hand. Not too sure what’s what up there and what I’ve got myself into but only time will tell. I’m working 11-5 so I can give you all a run down of tomorrow’s events after dinner.

So much for a long weekend huh?!?

Fitness Update…

So, it’s been one week since I started restarted my healthy eating plan. I’m not going to lie and say it was perfect and easy because IT WASN’T. I had a few setbacks. I had pizza on Friday because my boss really wanted it and I felt really bad saying no again. Actually, Friday in general was a horrible day for me with lunch and the A-League. Luckily, I had been pretty good during the week that I got off scott free. (Won’t be trying that again too often!)

Anyway, today was revised weigh-in number 1. Well.. How did I go?

 Success!

I lost 1.1kg. It was such a great feeling and a better start to the week than last week. Only 4kg to go in a time span of about 5 weeks. It’s totally doable and I know with the right help and frame of mind, I can achieve it.

Today has been pretty good so far but it’s only half over. I’ve downed 2 water bottles already and am looking forward to using my treadie while X-Factor is on tonight. 🙂 One more week until physio and hopefully I can run. YAY!
