2 weeks untill the big day!!!

OK so first off, it's 2 weeks until my wedding!!!!!! Super excited about that, and it is all coming together as well. We have got almost everything done, the last step, and the painful one, is paying for it all! But we will make due!

Scale wise I am about the same, which is fine I guess. I hate the fact that I wasn't able to loose anything for the wedding but I am excited to have the goal to do it once all this craziness is over with. I am thinking of putting together a post with some pictures of all my different weights. That's if I can find any decent pics. I was looking last night and there are some, but not a whole lot.

Plans for the weekend? Well not much for me I don't think. Dean's Bachelor party is tonight and I think I will be chilling at a friends waiting for them to be done, and today I just wanna tidy up a bit, maybe start a cross-stitch. I have been wanting to get back into them for a bit now, just can't seem to find the time. Tomorrow I may have to go into work, but if I don't it will still just be a relaxing day at home. Maybe do some laundry with are insanely slow washer!

Well that is about it for me, the count down is on and I will be busy the next few weeks, but it is exciting all the same!!!

Hurricain Sunday!

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are all enjoying the weather more than me! We are sitting in a hurricain and our basement is flooding some, the power is out for alot of people and the rain just dosn't want to stop.

That being said I am in my comfy's reading and watching TV relaxing. We had a late night last night at friends and are a little sleepy today. That being said we don't like lazing around and are getting board. But thats ok!

My weigh in this week wasn`t what I wanted to see, but it`s all my own fault, and while I am not happy with it I will survive.

I want to mention congrats to Lynn Who is down 100 lbs! I am so proud and she is a huge inspiration, now if she could only lend me her motivation for a while!

Well that is it for now, just sitting through the storm!

Back down in the valley

Well I am not sure if it's the heat, or the 5 day work week, or just my eating habits this week but I am back down low in the valley of self pity!

I feel gross, I feel like I have no energy, I am so sleepy I can't even watch a TV show past 730! I want to do something exciting and fun this weekend but don't want to at all because I feel so gross!

I know that I can loose weight I know I can try to do better and loose weight and be healthy but for some reason I can't do it. It sux! I am so mad at myself and so upset I don't even know what to do.

Well I guess I can say I ranted, and I feel well not better but it's out there. And maybe I can feel better tomorrow. And maybe I will feel better next week.

A long hot day...

Well when I got to work today with the humidex inside it was 36, when I left it was 40... Yea hot. It's like a sauna only you can't get out. So needless to say it was gross. And today seemed to drag on forever. It was long and hot and gross. So now I am home and just want to lay in bed and stay cool. My only saving grace is that our bedroom is in the basement so it is nice and cool. So we may go to the beach after supper and get some icecream and then head back home and early to bed.

I love the nice weather but is sux to work in!!

A busy weekend

OK So this was my first real weekend off after my first 5 day work week!!!

And we were busy! Yesterday we headed into town to pick up some things and run some errands. Then we headed to a fundraiser for the Relay for Life, and then met up with some old friends and hit the beach. We left the house around 930, and other than a quick stop to change and drop off out buys from the city we didn't get home till about 830.

We (well hunny) wanted to stay up late, and Ive been wanting to watch the DaVinci Code again since I read the book. And we had a few drinks, while by the first one I was falling asleep and I made it about 3/4's of the way thru the second before Dean said we could go to sleep, which was about 1030!

But I was up by 730 and we have been pretty busy today and havn't stopped. I had some breakfast and we went out so Dean could practice backing up, as he takes his drivers test this week (good luck hun!). Then it was back home where I went through my clothes and changed the bed, and we worked on our song list for the wedding reception. Dean is now washing the car and I am e-mailing some ppl and working on wedding stuff (lists and whatnot)

I am hoping to go to the Beach tonight but we will see.

Need to find the motivation....

Ok so the last few days I have been totally not paying attention to what I eat. And that is a lie because I know what I am eating and how unhealthy it is for me but I can't seem to care really. But I think I know why. I am getting married in less than a month and I lost 3 lbs last week. Part of that is really good, but then I thought that if I loose too much my dress won't fit! So that is part of it. The rest of it is just there is so much going on right now that I can't get organized. I am in my new job and that is a bit stressful, and working 5 days a week now is a bit stressful too.

So here is my new commitment. I am not going to track my food until after the wedding. I am still going to weigh in once a week. And my new goal is to be in the 160's (preferably lower) by March 1st. We are going away down south then for our honeymoon and I want to look good. So that is it, I will still blog but this is about maintenance for the month and then I will get back to it.

I hope to get to the gym still but that is for stress relief not nessacarly weight loss.

So that is it, my thoughts in my head make sense!

ok, hump day!

So today is hump day! On my first full week of work, and I am already exhuasted. But I will prevail. Not much to say, my eating has sucked, and while i'm not ok with that It is all my fault. But I am going to deal with it, wow this is going to turn into a blab session which dosn't make sense, so I will leave it at that and get my thoughts together.

Just wanted to share

Hey everybody, I just wanted to share this song with you; one of my staff wrote it and it is him singing it. We work on a special care floor, so people who are confused and have dementia.

Thanks guys


Good Evening everyone,

Well we still have no running water, but the plummer has been here for the day and is pretty sure we will have water by the time we go to bed. My eats today were horrible and I am going to leave it at that.

My day at work was busy and I am very sleepy. And the JP is comming over to talk about the ceremony, and then I will be heading to bed and reading and then going to bed, work again in the morning!

Wedding Shower fun

Good Morning bloggies, well after a lovely wedding shower yesterday and quite a few drinks of blueberry wine it was a good day. The festivities stared around 1 I picked Lynn and returned to my house where my throne was decorated....

So the fun began and I opend some gifts, which were mostly gift cards which made me happy! Dean also got a cookie jar out of the deal and I scored some other interesting stuff. So once the gift opening was done it was time for my crown........

Then some food....

What I didn't show was the plate of sweets I ate, or the numerous glasses of wine I drank....
All in all it was a good day, Now I am off to my Aunts becuase we have no running water here and need to get it fixed, but I need to be clean and have clean clothes for work! Have a good sunday bloggies!

Early Satuday morning

Ok good morning everyone, Rarely do I blog this early but I guess waking up more than 3 days in a row at an ungodly hour means that it works on the weekend too. Was up at 6 but didn't crawl out of bed until about now, 730 or so, I just read my book. I am ready the first Harry Potter book which is easy to read which is what I wanted.

Today is my wedding shower, and I am being kicked out until about 1 so mom can decorate and things, which I don't mind, I will just take Dean down to a friends.

I weighed in today, which I think I will make my new weigh in day and I was down 3 lbs! I am super happy with that. I am going to try to eat good today even though I know there will be alot of good stuff to eat, but I did pick up a huge fruit and veggie tray so I will try to stick to that.

Other than that not much to say, relaxed last night and plans for tomorrow depend on the weather!

Crazy day!

OMG!!! That about says how my day was.... Insane. I was so busy I didn't even get a lunch break. And on top of that who knew a cinnamon bun was like 400 calories???? I didn't, I was thinking like 250 but no 420 freaking calories...

However the not eating lunch made up for it I guess, but if I had of ate lunch I would have been up for going to the gym.

And it was so hot at work if I don't loose weight from sweating so much I will be shocked!

Other than the fact that the day was busy it was a good day, we had pasta for supper and I didn't go over my calorie's!

And to close a pic of my kitty making love to my shoes, he likes my shoes....

Well I wanna relax the rest of the night so I will chill now, have a good night!

Wedding Stress!!!!!

Ok so I will start with the good things that happened today....

No, good things did happen. I started my clinical leader position today and was happy to learn that things up on 5C weren't quite as bad as they appeared. Now tomorrow is Doctor day so we shall see how that goes...

And another good thing, we went to the gym, and Dean made a lovely supper of hamburgers and baked potato.

And that is where the good stops and the bad begins. As I couldn't enjoy my supper because I was so mad over my wedding and things are going crazy on that front. So it's bad enough Deans grandparents couldn't come (well won't come but anyway), but I now have to deal with my divorced grandparents acting like they are 12. My grandmother will come to the ceremony but not the reception because, and I quote; "I don't know what your (grand)father will do". Now she said this to my mom a few days ago and it pissed her off too. The RSVP I got was that she was coming to the ceremony (only).................

Like come on these people are in their 70's and apparently can't be civil for their granddaughters wedding??? So I was upset about that plus the fact that we are not getting the responses through RSVP that we need to even have the type of meal we want (buffet). I was so mad I could, oh wait, did cry!

Well that was mostly my day, the rest was sitting contemplating what to do about the reception, and if I will even speak to my grandmother again.

Hope tomorrow is better!

A supper time expierment

Well I don't normally blog twice in one day but we had an expierment at supper and I took pics!So my eats today were wonderful, I will be at 1238 calories once i have my jello and cool whip. We didn't get to the gym or a movie, just relaxed at home, which was nice. So here is the goods, tell me what did I have for supper??

And a close up...

Ok so it looks like mashed potatoes right?? Well it's not, its mashed Cauliflower. Which even though it looked like mashed potatoes sad to say its not near as good. And next time I will just stick to boiled cauliflower. It was bland and watery. Now we may substitute some for some potatoes next time to make it less calories.

So it wasn't the best but I can see a change in mashed potatoes maybe. Have a good evening.

Back to rain...

So yesterday was another awesome day. I didn't get in as much sun as I wanted because it was so hot but that also means I didn't burn!

Dean mowed the whole lawn which probably took him about 2 hours, we had a good trip to the grocery store, only picking up what was on the list. And I got all the laundry done except for a small load of towels!

And my eats were right on. And Supper was an awesome salad with chicken skewers on them! Some times I wished I took pics of some of my food like some other Halibloggers because that salad looked awesome, maybe I will start.

The evening was spent sipping a few glasses of wine and watching a movie, that we again didn't finish, and then we slept in until 9:00!

Today is rainy and gross, we might go into a movie and if we do I am gonna see about going to the gym. Supper is already planned and will be fairly low cal, and I start my new position tomorrow... eeeekkkk!

Needless to say it will be early to bed for me!

Good day yesterday... looks better today

So the past few days have been good. Eating wise not so much but activity wise good.

Friday we went and hunny had a driving lesson and I went for my dress fitting. Then we went to the Mongoli grill with friends and headed back to there place for some planning about our honeymoon. We are going down south and figure they should come, the more the merrier right?

Yesterday I worked out at their place before we left... oh how I would love to have a treadmill in my home... And we headed into the city because the boys had to get sized for tux's. I must admit I was not fond of the woman helping us at all...and I may make a compliant against her. She was rude and bossy and rushed us in and out.
Afterwords we went for lunch at Boston Pizza, wasn't too impressed with my lunch but didn't eat it all and will probably finish it today.

Then we headed to the VV Boutique (aka Value Village), and I got a new top a pair of pants and some books. Then we headed home and made pizza for supper, was very good, and then went down to the beach for a walk in the sunset... which was very nice and the water was cold but my feet got used to it... or did they go numb?

When we got home we tried to watch a movie but I fell asleep so we just went to bed.

Today I woke up and it was sunny! None of this cloud that has to burn off first, it was actually sunny! So today I plan on laying on the deck and getting a tan... but first we have to clean up and go get some groceries ... blah...
