Quick Wednesday Weigh-In

Got out on Monday (and a swim in the afternoon) and again this morning - stunning mornings now that the rain has cleared (at least for a bit):

The next run will be "graduation" (again!). Pretty proud of myself for re-doing this and easing back into it. I think I would have hurt myself again if I launched right back where I left off. I have twinges of plantar faciitis and the hip flexor thing, but they are being kept at bay by running slowly (gotta have some benefits), not too far and stretching/foam rolling.

So, I got on the scales this morning and they said 73.9kg!! Woo hoo! I realised I didn't have my phone to take the pic with me, so went and got it, and then:

71.4kg - 157.4 lbs
I assure you I did not excrete anything in the 30 seconds it took to get my phone. I hopped off and on multiple times and it stayed at 71.4 or 71.2 (but that is just getting ridiculous).

So, I weigh around 71-74kg. Roughly. Who knows?

Headed up to Sydney for a couple of days of shopping, musicals and hanging out with my brother (and mum). Might go for a walk. But I think I'll save "graduation" until I get home and puppy can come with me - he's been there every step of the way, excreting and running. So see you then!


  1. That is nearly 13 pounds (the only way my brain works)! You should be noticing it in your clothes now. Congratulations! And double that for being almost through the program.

    1. I'm starting to get looser pants - yay! I think Sydney undid a lot of good work, but I'll keep plugging away!

My Students + Curriculum + Learning Spaces + Real Life = A Day In the Life

This Day is from last week when I thought it was A Day In The Life but it was Learning Spaces instead...probably just as well, because the last few days have not been worth blogging about (or maybe there's a big blog post in there lurking away, but I just can't deal with it right now)...anyway...

This week is the last of our Aussie NBTS posts and a's a long post!! So if you stay to the end, you have done well and earn bonus points.

I think a lot of people who don't homeschool are curious as to what our days look like. Those 6 panel Facebook memes have been doing the rounds, and of course there was a Homeschool one:

He he he!

The night before the Day in the Life: I should preface this Day with the fact that we had a late Night watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It was on TV, but we got out the DVD to skip the ads. I feel that some movies are just a compulsory part of any child&#…

I see...

We've had a couple of interesting weeks here. Video Boy has inherited his mother's shocking vision - he has myopia (commonly known as short-sightedness or near-sightedness). It occurs when the eyes focus light in front of the retina, leading to unfocussed vision.

Close up is usually OK, but distance vision is pretty fuzzy:

For me, even the couple would have been blurry! I was "medically blind" which meant I got my optometrist fees covered by Medicare (yay!).

So, Video Boy has had glasses for a couple of years now - he has broken one pair and then lost the replacement pair (grrr) and so for a couple of months, his world has looked like the picture on the right...and he was squinting to watch TV, read signs, pretty much all the time.
So, we went off to the optometrist last week to get us some new glasses!
The optometrist is up on all the latest research - with Wombat Girl, we bought a software program with special "lenses" and she had to do a practice session…

52 Ancestors - Strong Woman

I'm doing my family tree and I thought I might try to share some of it with you (the plan is each week with a prompt from the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks to write and share your genealogy, but we'll see!).

This is my father's mother's mother (so my great-grandmother) Susannah Jane Freeman, or Grandma Parsons as she was known. She was born 28 Sept 1873 in Crow Mountain, near Tamworth, NSW. With her husband, Charles Parsons, she had 7 children (one before her marriage - scandal! and supposedly the last one at age 51 - we are not sure of the story behind that one!). She died in 1956 aged 82 of heart disease.

So, for International Women's Day this week and for the Strong Women theme of #52ancestors, I think she looks like a strong and formidable female ancestor.
