Photos from the weekend

Everywhere we go strangers stop me to tell me how cute Mickey is!
Some people even want to touch his hair..which I find weird..I'd never be all over a baby I've never met  :-/

But he is CUTE I can't argue with them there.  I find it a bit overwhelming though I don't like all the attention and people looking/talking.  Even though it's not me, it's him, and it is all positive compliments.  It's weird...

I'll get used to it I guess I'm used to going unnoticed 

Tigger.  We have a matching hat with ears and on his bottom is a tail. 
Thanks Mum

You make every day the best day of my life   xoxox

Any time I go shopping with an idea in my head of how I want my new outfit to look...I end up buying something for Mickey ha and not even looking for myself haha.

Luckily my amazing Mum thought of me and bought me this cardi for my birthday.  I love it!

Doesn't she have FABULOUS taste

Bag, black thermal underneath, earrings and belt all from The Warehouse.  Jeans from Wild Pair on special.

I like it simple.  I wont spend over $50 on myself that entire outfit is under $50 in total.  Not including the cardigan of course because that was a gift.

Thank you!!!!!

What do you call this look..budget chic.  Hahaha

It's time to step up my training!

I started back at the gym when Mickey was 6 weeks (very gently) but my milk started to dry up so I eased off..I've been training but it hasn't been regular enough and I haven't progressed much.  I've more been doing it as time to myself.

I stepped on the scales tonight...
Height: 169cm
Weight: 56kgs
BMI: 19.8
Fat%: 23.4%

There's a starting point.

I don't really care what I weigh, I wouldn't mind losing a couple of kilos, it's more about shape.  Toning.

Also aerobic fitness I scored a 3/5 on a bike test that monitored my heart rate.  I don't know how reliable that is though I had to do the test a few times because it was skipping all over the place and had my heart rate really high at one stage when it definitely wasn't.

Goals to work toward
That bike test I'd like a 4/5 or I'd rather a different aerobic fitness test.
Body fat I'd like 20% which would mean losing 2kgs
Want to increase all my weights, my lower body is strong but my upper body isn't, will be working on that.  Working on my left side as well I'm a bit unbalanced from carrying Mickey around
Sleep easier
More energy
All those general benefits that follow being healthy

I'll check back on this update in 6 weeks time

I checked into facebook this morning to see what my friends got up to over the weekend while I was away..and it got me thinking...I have a love/hate relationship with facebook.

I don't care so much about the privacy issues I'm an open book (obviously I wouldn't have a blog if privacy bothered me) the love part is I can keep up with friends easily especially those not in Lower Hutt.  The hate is how much time it takes up.  This "checking in" took nearly an hour, while Mickey was napping.  Not so productive.  Not very personal either if keeping up is only liking a photo of them from a party I missed.  I'd be better off calling or at least writing an email  :-/

Anyway what does this have to do with the title interests.
Looking at the photos I realize how much I've changed since becoming a Mum.  I don't drink anymore which I wish I'd stopped earlier but I didn't have the motivation ha I'm a much happier person - that's a really big change haha.  But also my idea of a good time is not getting dolled up going out for drinks, dancing and causing trouble.  My idea of a good time is feeding and bathing Mickey, dinner with my boyfriend, staying in watching a movie or time with friends during the days rather then late nights.

Not that I'm a boring soccer Mum (though how cute will it be when Mickey is older playing Saturday sports.  I hope he's into that) I just honestly love to be with him and it's OK to admit that isn't it.  Honesty that is the best time of my life.  Mummy and Mickey time  <3 <3 <3

I don't want to isolate myself though.  Here's a list of interests I wrote when I was 23.

Tattoos, hair dye, absolute fabulosity, roller derby, tacky earrings, high heels, killing zombies, cash money, shopping, trashy lingerie,  hula hoops, pole fitness, colourful make-up, sunshine, green tea sorbet, bustin balls, animal rights, sleeping in, tough guys, breaking the rules, swimming in the ocean, time to myself, working out, hotrods, vegan cupcakes & all vegan treats, being a stranger in new cities, dancing, bruises, bad jokes,  making fun of myself, the internet, cuteness, my kittehs, horror movies,  good books, good music, good food/drinks, good art  &  STUFF..
these are a few of my favourite things.

I'll be 26 in a few days.  Lots of those favourite things are jokes.  What are my interests now.  Besides my beautiful baby boy.
Thinking about that question..... that's what's on my mind right now.

Or, maybe nothing has changed, maybe it's just winter and I want to hibernate.  Maybe it's just the die hards who are busy out and about and if I'm happy at home why do I have to change a thing.  Maybe it's just facebook everyone always looks like they are having a better time then you but that's an illusion and whose idea of a "better time"?! 

I love my life

Big Softie

I can't help but get teary when Mickey looks me in the eyes...with his bright blue eyes and his smile and talks (coos) and giggles.  I love him so much.  Brings me to tears.  Of happiness x


Intense joy

2 minute make-up

If you're thinking...yea that looks like it took 2 minutes! Then:
  1. you're a bitch ha 
  2. you probably haven't seen what make-up that takes me 40 minutes looks like (not much better) haha
  3. you're much more clever then I.

I don't wear make-up every day which is probably why I still suck at it at my age.  But 2 minutes isn't bad...getting faster.  Not sure if I'm getting any better though.  Fast is good :-) x
