Happy Australia Day

There are three factors that came together to make this the most awesome day ever:

1. It's a public holiday
2. Wine tastings at the Yarra Valley
3. 30 Rock marathon on TV

It's Australia Day here today, I'm not hugely patriotic, but I am very in favour of being paid not to go to work.

AJ and I couldn't bare to spend the day in our boring house in the boring suburbs, so even though we are meant to be saving for our holiday in March, we decided to go to our favourite place in Melbourne, the Yarra Valley.



Devouring a cheese plate and a bottle of wine at a winery in the Yarra Valley. I've been stuck with a crappy plateau lately, so I figured my body is getting too used to healthy food and exercise and needed me to mix it up a bit.



I don't normally like a full body shot, but I guess it is helpful for looking back on in a years time when I have (hopefully) lost a shit load of weight.




Showing some leg on the car ride home where I managed to neck two bottles of wine on the one hour trip home. I always take the fun too far... I am going to pay for it tomorrow.

It's days like this that make me so happy I am quitting my job so I can spend less time working and more time drinking wine in the sun and watching 30 Rock.

  7. WOohooo you look gorgeous girl! Love those sexy legs of yours.

    I PMSL when I read "I've been stuck with a crappy plateau lately, so I figured my body is getting too used to healthy food and exercise and needed me to mix it up a bit."

    I think it happens to all of us. And you are so right! Being good all the time leads to a drop in Leptin levels and makes us plateau. So this will give them a boost and get you on your way again.

  13. I love your blog! The post about wasting away your life at work really resonated with me (and every time I have cut loose from work I have not regretted it one bit!), as does all the wine-drinking. This may sound funny, but it's so nice to read a blog of someone who's working on weight loss, but can still toss back a bottle of wine!
