Hi, I am a professional nail tech that lives in the beautiful country of New Zealand. I also have CRPS -- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
I have a love for anything Kombi and love the beach, and dream one day of owning my VW Beetle and a cottage by the sea.
I know I keep saying it, but has it been really a week since I posted....
Anyway update on "TS14plus" - I rung them on Monday and they said it was not 30% off as it was not knitwear, well hello when something is in the middle of a rack full of clothes that look like knitwear to me, I would assume it was 30% off...... so anyway was not impressed with their service, and they way they spoke to me on the phone, so told them I would no longer be shopping with them, as there was no apology or anything, oh but they did say many people had got confused that day.... I put my post up on Facebook, and this lady posted that she was also confused by what was 30% off etc... I got a phone call from "TS14plus", head office, I think it was from Aussie, where she actually listened to my complaint, and apologised for the way I had been treated and was going to contact the Tauranga branch to make sure it does not happen again. They also offered me a $20 voucher, I asked if it could be an Aussie voucher so I can use it in Aussie, in just over 4 weeks time and they said fine.
Anyway on to me, after all this blog is all about me isn't it.... weight wise, have no idea, I am no longer weighing, I may or may not weigh at the end of the year, to see what the change will be, have the 1st Jan weight number if I want to compare. Me getting healthy, is not about the number on the scales, they can do your head in so much. So exercise wise I am now walking 2.9km's, am stoked, my goal was to be walking 2.5km's by the time we go to Aussie, goal is now 3kms, or even more if I feel I can do it, without causing the CRPS to flare. I walk every 2nd day, so one week 4 days, the next week 3 days. By the way it is 4 weeks on Wednesday till Aussie now... :)
Assignments are all done, now just exams to go which start in 3 weeks, and then 3 week break before 2nd semester starts, and two weeks will be at the Gold Coast.
Food wise, have not focussed on what I am eating yet, but step 1, I am going wheat free - I know doing low carb works for me, I just need to take it step by step..... I do not want what happened to me last time, happen again - I know once I get an idea in my head I go for it all out, but this time I am doing it slowly and properly, so my body can adjust in each step.
This week, I have been spending some time on me, doing makeup everyday, just because, I got so many compliments on my make-up, think after watching 20 million blogs I think I am getting it right most of the time lol. It felt really good to take the time to do it properly, and I felt really good doing it :)
Now vlogging, I have attempted a few, a couple I took one look at them and wham had to delete them, I still have a couple to look at, and see if I can edit them into something worthwhile, I really do need practice lol. But hey got to start somewhere :).
Oh yeah, the order from "Youshop" is still coming, it is quite slow, but I suppose it is better then buying the stuff here (if you can even get it here) at a huge price, I ordered a couple of nighties from "OneStopPlus", the other week, they arrived 8 days later, bloody brilliant :). Now I really must be on a budget, if I want spending money in Aussie :)
Anyway thats it from me for now.... I will be back to more regular posts now, the assignments are all done and in. I know I have exam study but it is not quite so full on as assignments. I think the reason it got so much this time, was because I had 3 weeks off, when I got ill and it is hard to catch up when you are behind that much.
So have a wonderful rest of the weekend and talk in a couple of days :)
