So yes I have been 'missing from blogland' but it is all good.
When I used to 'missing from blogland', it usually meant bad news, for example, I had had a binge or just not been training or my focus wasn't quite right!
Now it means I have no bloody spare time due to to much focus!!
My days looks pretty much like this everyday :
sort the kids,
teach a couple of classes,
home to eat,
go to work (Co-ordinator work),
get ready for evening classes,
pick up kids,
teach a couple of classes,
Maddison to bed,
shower & ready for bed,
Bryce to bed,
stuff for work on computer,
get everything & everyone ready for the next day
But I hate being bored with no focus and life just floating on by!!
The days and weeks are just zooming past and it scares me!!
I have updated my other blog also, I had two weeks worth to get in! Opppssss! so much for it being called a daily diary :)
I could probably could be a little better with my time management and squeeze an extra hour out of every day, but I just need to concentrate on doing that and my concentration right now is on alot of other things.
So I will keep it brief now as my day is structured by the clock and I'm 45 mins behind!!!! ARRRGGGGGGGGGHHHH - the Virgo control freak in me is going crazey at that thought.
SEE YA!!!! I'm off.......................

I wanted to keep something thats more of a diary so I can look back see how I was feeling and dealing with things on this Journey to July, especially when I get closer to comp.
This blog will be a little of everything about me, life, work, kids etc etc and the other wll be a more in depth account, my mind management! Please understand though, if I want to winge I will do (probably alot towards the end!), if I want to scream and shout about how well I think i'm doing I will, so if you don't want to read this stuff, don't, stay with this one, but one things for sure it will be open and honest.
I have had it for a few weeks now and kept it closed but have decided to open it up for all to read, as I feel this little community is great support and if this is were I'm putting all the nitty grity stuff I may be able to draw on everyones support.
Heres the link - http://journeytonovicefigure.blogspot.com/
Hope you are all well and thanks for all the comments.

Friday night and I'm sitting here feeling sorry for myself as I have a cold, feeling really crappy. BUT the difference now is I am still on track, still got all my sessions in and trying to focus on getting better - earlier nights etc.
Before when I got sick I would huddle up, eat crap 'nice' food that I couldn't even taste and abandon my exercise.
Anyway, I'm getting all my stuff ready for my 2nd sesion with Sam, I meet weekly with her now to do my posing practice and soon start my routine etc.
I really enjoyed it last week, you should have seen me in those shoes though!! and I kept getting told 'get your butt up'........ I wasn't tilting my pelvis enough!! well what do you expect, I have a huge ass and have always tried to tuck it in not stick it out! :)
My week has been busy, two Group Fitness Co-ordinators posts, all my classes, training, kids off school etc etc, but all I thought was 'I don't have as much on as Ali at the mo and she is doing it, so shut up and get on with it Sharleen'. THANKS ALI, your an inspiration!
Have not deviated one incy bit from my plans, both food and exercise, still feeling extremely focussed and really do want to make this reality.
Anyway, only a quickie as I must have my last meal and get to bed, Bodyattack to teach tommorow with a head cold, NOT GOOD!!!!
Have been doing my rounds of the blogs and all the girls hat are so close to comp now are keping it together and going well, you are all amazing and I can't wait for some pics.
Hopefully I get to meet you all in July!!! YAY!!

I don't know if this is 'normal behaviour' (probably not) and things will probably come and go from 'THE LIST', but I have had to start an 'after comp list' either bits I want to eat straight after, my favourites, or stuff I want the couple of days after.
Don't get me wrong, I am not fighting myself and wanting to give in now, just sometimes look at stuff and think oh that will be nice after comp!! for example .............
Peanut butter on toast!!!! *dreamy looking face, tastebuds watering*
and for sure with all the Easter talk and choc around, some of these babies will be in my comp bag for after..........
Also I have to go to KOKO BLACK!!! when I am in Melbourne and eat some of that devine high quality looking chocolate, does anyone want to volunteer to take me and perhaps join me for a choccie or two ;) (don't all rush at once!! :)Anyway, enough thinking of food I'm not allowed and back focussing on the good stuff! I do feel so much better eaing clean. I don't get sluggish I'm not so tired, my skin is better etc etc.
Have a great weekend

Was so impressed with myself I just had to show you!!
One of my meals right now is Chicken, Sweet Pot and Brocolli.
Not a lover of anything green looking!!! and have been eating the
above as per normal cooking methods for 8 days now, so wanted
to try something different.
So whilst doing my weekly mass cook up of all my meals, I thought
I would experiment with that one meal.
So weighed up all the individual portions and one at a time
(very time consuming) popped it in the blender. Scopped it all
out and made some patties.
Added herbs and spices and voila!
Warmed up in the oven, they are delish!!!
So update needed I guess?
I have been with Sam since Jan now. Been training hard no probs
there, but I didn't quite get my mojo back with diet since coming
home from the UK.
So desparate measures were required, well not really desparate,
but I was sure feeling desparate.
So we increased my comp prep from 16 weeks to 20 weeks and
will take it a little slower. I needed this to pull my focus back.
I am pleased to report I have now been in comp prep with Sam
leading me along for 9 days now.
Have stuck to my plan, both diet and exercise. A couple of days
I didn't eat all my meals and got a slap on the hand but I have
gotten back up to all meals per day.
I haven't had a pepsi max for 20 days!! I feel in control of that now
and will perhaps allow myself one on a Sunday if I make it through
the weekend on track, weekends are terrible for me a real mental test
for me with regards to food.
So what else has been going on?
SAM came to my Bodyattack Launch on Monday!! Was great to see her there. She was the one armed Bodyattacker, in a nice way - it was funny!
I must say as the week has gone on and I have taught the whole release a good 4 times, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. If you normally do Bodyattack you will love it, just give it a couple of classes.
If you don't normally do it and you want some HIT, then get your butts in to a class and prepare to be challenged! Don't be scared off though, if you get a good instructor they should always give lower options to allow you to reduce intensity and work at your own level to complete the whole class.
I wen tto my first AFL match last weekend!!! My dad and Hubby surprised me, got a friend to have ou little girl and we all wen tto the footie!!
The Eagles and Dockers played in the NAB cup at Subiaco here in Perth.
I have loved the ottie since we first arrived, I appreciate the physical side of the players and find the speed of the game very engaging and I must say I JUST LOVED GOING TO THE MATCH!! I am hooked for sure.
We have signed 'My boy' up to the local club, can't wait to get involved with that! He is very lucky with regards to sport. He can turn his hand to anything. A very good sprinter AND endurance runner! I think he will excel at footie once he is coached in the technique of playing.
I have no idea about Melbourne and its surrounds, but my hubby and I are looking forward to the comp so if anyone reading can advise on somewhere to stay that is central for after comp but with easy access to the Camberwell Centre for the comp please can you let me know, I will start to ponder on flghts and accomodation soon I think.
Well, a rather long post for me!! Thanks for reading.
Hope you are all well
