Dear Friday's Letters, thought I'd bring you back...

I handed in my resignation this week.  Some of you may remember me mentioning that my Dad is really sick.  It's times like these that a family needs to be together so I've decided to move to Newcastle.  In saying that it was an incredibly easy decision to make.  It's no secret that I've found Adelaide an extremely difficult place to live this past year and I've spent 6 years now living away from my family so even though Newcastle isn't technically my 'home' I do feel like I'm finally moving home.

I decided to amp up my fitness regime again to try to lose the extra couple of kilos that have been following me around since Christmas.  I'd already gone sugar-free in January but I thought I'd take it up a notch by waking up at 5.30 every morning and doing 30-45 minutes on the exercise bike and also walking approx 4kms 3 times a week after work.  One of the days I did a 6.5km walk and even managed to run some of it.  I was so amped for weigh in day.  BUT... In the first week I only lost a whopping 100 grams.  In my second  I went even harder and somehow managed to put on 400 grams.  Yup.  Fail.  I celebrated by putting my middle finger in the air and eating a chocolate bar.

I'm very excited that I'll be living so close to my sister soon.  I haven't had any close girlfriends near me since I left Darwin well over a year ago so to say I've really missed someone to sit down and have a wine and a chat with is an understatement.  The ironic part is that I've had a heck of a lot of free wine from my work this year.

I'm really excited about the upcoming launch of Zoe Foster-Blakes new skincare range called Go-To... Can't wait to check it out...

That's all my news for this week, what have you been up to?
