Merry Christmas

A merry Christmas to you all!

How is everyone recovering from the food comas and family overload?

I've enjoyed sniffing the real Christmas tree and introducing the Boy to my dad's extended family for the first time (bit naughty after two years together!). Ended up feeling sick after all the Christmas yummies I stuffed in my tummy, despite my attempts to control myself. That's always the way though! hahaha

And, ah, I had my first white Christmas. I can't say I'm a huge fan. All that white stuff is hail. I now have plenty of hail dints in my beautiful new car :( There is nothing we could have done about it though, and plenty of others have had it a lot worse. One white Christmas is definitely enough for me though!

Now I'm just hanging out to watch the Downton Abbey Christmas Special :)

Get walking.

Following the completion of my thesis, I realised that all those munchables I had been nibbling on while writing up my thesis had decided to stick around. And so I've begun going for walks around a national park close by, at least every second day. There's an extremely steep hill that I have coined the Hill of Death.

Sometimes, if I go at the right time of day, I get to see kangaroos, wallabies and other wonderful Australian wildlife. Other times I just sweat away by myself.

My sister is having a lot of luck with Weight Watchers or something similar in losing weight, but god, the food looks awful and so plain. So I think I'll stick to trying to watch what I eat, avoiding the junk food (which is actually so much easier now!) and increasing my exercise. Wish me luck!

Thesis complete.

My thesis is finally finished and I received my results just last week. It was 108 pages when it was finally printed. It was so satisfying submitting it.

And then, on Tuesday, my results were released. The lovely boyfriend sent these as a congratulations and celebration of all that effort that I put in. I've never had flowers delivered before! I was quite surprised!

A wonderful combination with my H1 result. Yep, H1. Booyah! hahaha I'm ecstatic!
