Fathers Day

Fathers Day has come and gone. Happy Fathers day to all the men in blogville and all the fathers out there. You are all greatly appreciated. For me, fathers day was spent hitting the shops .......... getting a present for my man. He is afterall going to be the father of my kids so I figured we might as well start celebrating fathers day together early. I had planned to take him out but he was busy trying to meet his deadline (as usual) so I headed off to the shops to buy some presents for him. Being the naughty girl that I am, I decided on getting him some aftershave and fragrances - but only those that came with free gifts attached so I could get something on the side and more value for my money too. LOL!!

My race pack for my July 1st race arrived today. The days draw closer and all of the sudden, there never seems to be enough hours in any one day for me to train. Am I becoming boring? All I seem to be talking about nowadays seems to be my upcoming raceor my weight loss. Talking about my weight loss - my body is STUBBORN!! Ah ah!! Since April, the silly weight has been yoyoing steadfastly between 85kg and 88kg. Lord!! I look forward to going below the 85kg mark and maybe I'll throw a party when I finally hit that mark. That will be the day!

I'll share a bit of the purchases I have made lately with you guys. 3kg, 2kg and 1kg Dumbells and 0.5kg Ankle and Hand Weights:

Personally, Methinks I am becoming a little bit vain. These ones arrived today:

I'm loving this exercise book. The exercises are illustrated vividly and I'm hoping they'll work wonders if only I'll be steadfast. I'm loving it though. And this one too:

This is my vain side rearing its head. I was hoping for an audio book but the audio CD seems to conatin only audio exercises for each chapter in the book. Lets see how it goes. If I dont like it enough, may send it back to the seller before the return window closes.

I'm still expecting these purchases below. Maybe they'll arrive in the post tomorrow or during the week as they were ordered from the same suppliers. The purchases I'm still expecting are:

Will keep you guys posted when they arrive and if I'm making good use of them. Do have a lovely week ahead folks.
P.S :- The remaining purchases I was expecting are now firmly in my possession.
