I'm finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with 2 blogs. There are also posts that seem to fit both blogs but get put in one or the other, so I have decided to move any further posts over to here

I hope that you will come and visit me over there.

Ever since some major teeth problems about 6 weeks ago I have lost my motivation for my fitness. I admit I have been in a lot of pain and on drugs that my body has not tolerated so I have had some excuse I guess.
Not any more though, the problems are pretty much fixed and with the warmer weather we are having I really noticed some not so toned areas that until recently have been covered up hmmmmm.
So tonight I will be writing up a new weights and kickboxing program and at 6am tomorrow morning I will begin. Running up my mountain this time of year is out due to the huge number of brown snakes up there and as I don't take my phone and I run alone it really isn't such a great idea.
I haven't been to karate for 3 weeks, I'm still in two minds about continuing I just wish I could make up my mind once and for all.
So while I procrastinate I will be getting fit again at home.
Have a great weekend

I have missed having chookies so much, now I have 6 more and here they are in all of their sweetness.

They are Isa Brown pullets, 12 weeks old so it will be a little while before we see some eggs. The kids will be very excited when they get home from school today.

Here is our chook pen, the shed is our original chook shed, we cleared it out, redbacks and all, over the weekend then re-built the fence. The chickens will have free run of part of our backyard when I build a temporary fence around some areas that I'd rather not have them in.
As you can see we are yet to built a gate at the back of the yard, that will be next weekend's project I hope.

This yard looks quite small in the photos, but there is also a run down the side of our garage full of snails, slugs and numerous other creepy crawlies. I am worried about our blue tongue lizard family that happen to live under all of the ivy etc in the yard. Sadly, I think they will move on now, we will really miss them it they do, I will let you know if they stay around or not.
