Arghh…

Don’t you just hate it when you lose or misplace clothes? I bought a really nice short sleeved charcoal grey sweater with a thick black belt just before Christmas and voila…it has disappeared! I have the belt….just not the sweater lol…Maybe it’s at G’s and he hasn’t noticed. I thought I had taken it with me to a cottage that G had rented for Valentine’s day weekend but I know I didn’t wear it there and I’m pretty sure I didn’t leave it there..If i didn’t wear it, it wouldn’t have come out of my bag..and I ALWAYS thoroughly check an area before I leave.

For breaky I had sugar reduced, peach instant oatmeal..I don’t think I could EVER give up instant oatmeal and a cup of 60% fewer calories hot chocolate. I just ate a Praeventia 100 cal granola bar. I am missing out on some protein. I love turkey bacon too Sparkling…maybe I will have some scrambled egg whites and turkey bacon for lunch :). I haven’t bought bread or anything resembling bread in about two weeks (buns, dinner rolls etc).

Today I did something that was long overdue. I went through my overflowing drawers of clothes. I don’t fit into my size 4’s (currently an eight) and I’ve decided to donate some of the ‘too small’ clothes. NOT ALL..hopefully I will get back there, however I was quite content with a size 6. On the good news..I tried on two pairs of size 6 jeans that were almost impossible to get up around my arse back a few mths ago and I can get them done up!! SNUG…but DONE UP!!!!!!!!

G is home tomorrow from an annual ski-doo trip with his buddies. He left on Thursday and gave me his truck and house keys :). I was thinking of bringing Cosmo to his house tonight and going on to work in the AM from there and back again, however we are due to get 10 centimetres of snow and freezing rain tonight. My house is a lot closer and I would have to take the highway in the AM from his place. I can’t believe that I miss him so much!!!!!!!! It’s not like me to become so emotionally attached to a man but I love him to pieces!

Have a great day ladies!

Awesome website!

A girl from my hometown who is a year older than myself, has started a blog on facebook about her weightloss. So far she has lost 135.5 lbs through Weight Watchers and has really been inspiring me to get back on track. I am not sure if you can see the blog.

She also talks about this awesome blog, www.emilybites.com. Check it out! It’s full of healthy recipes and point values in weight watchers. I sooo need a food processor to begin making my own hummus..the second recipe she has posted. She also makes these individually portioned meals with a muffin pan..they look so cute!

Today I went to the mall with Myra, got a turkey sandwich from Tim Horton’s on whole wheat and a peanut butter cookie. They are my weakness..I need to make a healthier P B cookie or just begin eating a tablespoon of PB a day to take away the craving, lol.

As I type this lying down, my cuddly kitten is on my chest and purring away!

Have a great day ladies 🙂

Gone too long!

So after receiving a few comments I decided it’s time to blog and update you all on how things are going :).

On the dating side, the boy I was dating last May didn’t last that long, lol…and I dated a few others over the Summer that didn’t seem to go anywhere/ weren’t for me. I had decided to not settle on just anyone…been there/done that. In November I met Geoff (at this point I was getting completely sick of the dating game and especially online dating…just about to give up. I am happy to say that I feel like for the first time in my life I am completely in love. He is EVERYTHING that i’ve been looking for and has met all the things on my ‘list’ of what I was looking for. He’s 30 (I will be on the 23rd!), owns two houses, great job, mature, close friends and great relationship with family..and besides that he also cooks (well!!!) and cleans! I’ve hit the boyfriend jackpot :).

Now on to the not so great news…I’ve gained about 15 lbs. I realize now that I used the gym as a sort of therapy and escape from psycho ex boyfriend last Spring. I lost all interest in going to the gym :S.

My car broke down not long ago and I am considering buying a new one in the near future. I sacrificed and gave up my gym membership and getting my nails done which saves me at least $90 a month.

Ooh I also got a kitten last Thanksgiving..October here in Canada :). I adopted Cosmo from the SPCA and he is like my baby! On our second date, Geoff informed me that he’s slightly allergic to cats and I said right out, “is this going to be a deal breaker? Because my cat isn’t going anywhere.” He said, “nope!” and they (the allergies) have improved a lot…even to tthe point that Cosmo goes for sleepovers to G’s house (I will refer to him as G..lol).

To get back on track, last week I began the 17 day diet….it lasted about 5 days….I had to eat a granola one night due to a severe headache. I was becoming a little constipated and didn’t stick with it :(.

I need support, I need help and I need suggestions!

Forgot to add that in August I travelled to Surrey, British Columbia (other side of canada) to visit relatives for two weeks. It was an awesome trip! The weather was amazing (especially compared to Newfoundland) and the scenery is breathtaking! Spent a lot of time in Vancouver and also went to Whistler :). We drove to Portland and Seattle/ Washington….I love Outlet shopping!!!!!!!
