Survived the long weekend

Damn what a long weekend. I worked from Friday till yesterday and today I'm back at work at 6:30.... Kinda exhausted but will be ok

My early morning work view :)



Otherwise today is a emotional day for me. I have to take my 9mth old for her measles vaccine. I'm scared. She reacted differently to every vaccination she's gotten so I have no idea how this one will go. If she does ok, then I can hopefully start my workout routine today as well. Will keep you updated

She just had her measles vaccination and so far so good. She's fast asleep. Handled it like a trooper. Only cried with the needle insertion :)

Mommy need a coffee after that!!!

7 Important Things We ALWAYS Forget And Some Apps To Solve It

There seems to be an app for almost everything today but is the “perfect app” possible? If you could create an app, what all would it do? Maybe an app for all the important things we always forget?

10 Important Things We ALWAYS Forget

#1 – Backing up your computer and phone
One day your hard drive will fail. When your computer’s hard drive fails, it can be gut-wrenching. At best, maybe you lost a really important presentation you were working on. At worst, maybe you’ve lost every photo of your kid’s childhood.
There’s no excuse for this. Save yourself the trouble and start backing up your computer and phone now!

#2 – Store your receipts
Your phone is a great place to store receipts and there are lots of apps that offer this feature. Whether you need to keep track of business expenses to turn in to your employer, want to keep track of receipts as a self employed individual, or just want to know where your money is going, OneReceipt is a great option.

#3 – The security questions of passwords
Don’t worry there’s an app for that. If you have trouble remembering your passwords and private information.Use a password manager. Keeper saves your password and important data in one file.

#4 – Recipe items
How many times have we been cooking and panicked because we forgot to buy one crucial ingredient? Too many times, that’s what. Now there’s an app to help us in our hour of need. Substitutions is pretty straight forward ans easy to use.

#5 – Drinking enough water

Waterlogged is an app is indispensable for making sure I stay hydrated. I used to typically not drink much water, but whenever I use this app I make or exceed my goal. Being well hydrated has definitely made me feel better on a daily basis. I love the fact that you can set reminders.

#6 – Where we’ve left our keys
Forgot your keys? There’s an app for that! TrackR is a small, coin-sized device that easily attaches to your valuable items. With the TrackR app, locate any lost or misplaced item in seconds by ringing your missing keys, using TrackR’s Distance Indicator or via Crowd GPS. Watch the video below to learn more!

#7- People’s names a few seconds after we’ve been introduced
It happens to the best of us. You meet someone at a party, then three days later you run into them at the grocery store and can’t remember their name. This is an amazing tip I’ve found online: ‘Next time when you meet someone: ‘The other person says to you: “Hi, I’m Sasha”. As soon as you hear her name, start repeating SASHA in your head loudly a few times — SASHA, SASHA, SASHA. If you want to practice saying it out loud a few times, ask her about her name. “Sasha, that’s spelled S-A-S-H-A?” or “Sorry, I’m not so good with names. How do you spell that?” The purpose of these questions is to simply get you and Sasha to repeat her name a few times to help you to remember. This step should only take a few seconds at most, or else it can start feeling awkward” (source)



Im def trying the waterlogged app.....

 

How to Be Thankful For Life by Changing Just One Word

Tomorrow I start working Again..... I genuinely don't want too. Actually starting to get down. I also have to work the weekend and the public holiday on Monday. I just have to focus on surviving the weekend. Next weekend is also a long weekend and I am off. Just need To get through this weekend. But in the long run, I need To find something else to make me happy. My work hasn't done it For a while. But what else can I do? I keep thinking of Diary of a Fit Mommies Sia Cooper. She was a nurse and became self employed and is doing a damn good job of it. I want that. But how? Need inspiration. 

I just read something now that got me thinking..... 

How to Be Thankful For Life by Changing Just One Word

My college strength and conditioning coach, Mark Watts, taught me an important lesson that applies to life outside of the gym…

As adults, we spend a lot of time talking about all of the things that we have to do.

You have to wake up early for work. You have to make another sales call for your business. You have to work out today. You have to write an article. You have to make dinner for your family. You have to go to your son’s game. 

Now, imagine changing just one word in the sentences above.

You don’t “have” to. You “get” to.

You get to wake up early for work. You get to make another sales call for your business. You get to work out today. You get to write an article. You get to make dinner for your family. You get to go to your son’s game.

I think it’s important to remind yourself that the things you do each day are not burdens, they are opportunities. So often, the things we view as work are actually the reward.

This had a big effect on me now......

New body


As I have a new face and boobs, this gives me the motivation to clean up my body. That includes;

Diet for now as I can't exercise at all least 2 weeks
My supps. Glutamine multivitamin carnitine and CLA
My meds as needed
Patricia Clark wrap at night
Waist training in the day
Teeth whitening
Self tan

I also want to wash my hair less as it holds colour better if not washed often and seems to be in better condition. So will dry shampoo at night rather 

Let's see how the new routine goes!!!!

Day one liquid face lift

Went for a consultation with a aesthetic  doctor  and unexpectly my hubby said I can have my facelift there and then if I wanted!!! :) I had a laser eye lift with Botox, Botox inbetween my eyebrows, lip augmentation and Botox around my lip lines and fillers/Botox on my chin. 

Took only 34min! Felt numb in my mouth afterwards from the gel but otherwise oky  when the anaestic wore off my lips hurt pretty bad but the rest of me was ok. Just tender. I was very swollen so accurate look won't be possible but this is  photo I took about 7hrs later




My lips are still swollen unevenly and the Botox has obviously not taken full effect on my eyes. Will update soon!! :)



My surgery

Day 1: 9 April 2015

I had my breast revision surgery today. The car accident ended up damaging my boobs so I decided to go a bit bigger seeing as he has to basically cut me up again. 

I was scared shitless this morning. Had to be there at 5:30 so we left at 4! And I couldn't eat or drink anything from 10 the previous night so needless to say I was dying for a cup of coffee and I was pretty hungry :/ Luckily the drs put me at ease (I genuinely like Dr Shaw!!) the anastetic burnt like a bitch going in my arm. But once it went though I could feel that horrible going under sensation. The next time I woke it was in recovery. I just heard: Wake up Celeste. Then I was awake and the first think I remember seeing is J.Lo on VH1 classic!!! 😂 I immediately started moving my legs and they brought  me some tea to sip. That was nice as my throat was pretty sore. After I sipped tea Sternberg  was allowed in :) he let my mom know I was out and ok. I also started shivering quick badly from the anaestic but they brought me lovely heated blankets and replaced them every few min. What a godsend!!! As soon as I stopped shivering they said I could move around and walk to the lazy boy. Walked there no problem. Sat for a bit then got that delicious Butternut soup!!! Flippen love that shit. Drank the whole bowl then needed to pee 😂 
Typical Post surgery pee. Felt massive need to pee, peed 100ml :/ they eventually said I could go home because I was doing to well. Left at 11:24 :) Hubby bought me sushi, a jam donut and a vanilla coke. Love my man!!!!

And the best part? Jam donut was FRESH! Ah it tasted like heaven.... Polished it all then slept like the dead for 2 hrs. Now just relaxing on the couch. Intercostal anaestic starting to were off as I can feel my stitches :/ will take night time pills now now

Below is the picture of my boobs the night before the surgery. You can see the dramatic damage the seatbelt did.

But hopefully that's fixed now. Will update soon!
