Getting Better

I’m getting back to normal but my husband is now sick.  So we’ve just kinda been hibernating at home the last couple of days.  I think we needed the rest anyway, especially him, because he’s been working like crazy.  Even when we were on vacation he was working every day. Other than that not much […]


So we’re all sick now.. yesterday was my turn.. I was a total mess.  My stomach has been in ruins for days but yesterday I could hardly get out of bed.  My husband left for work at noon and my Mom came at 3:30.  Thank God the kids were okay yesterday and being perfect angels. […]

I’m Here!

I was having a lot of difficulty figuring out what to write today.  I had a great time in Calgary.  It was a wonderful trip.. eating was decent, I managed to exercise too.  We came back last night and went to my Mom’s house for dinner.  Then we came home and tidied up, unpacked, put […]

My Glasses Are Back

A few months ago, little miss Safiya broke my glasses,  a couple months later, on a day when I was out of contact lenses and relying on my second pair of glasses… little miss Safi got those too.. destroyed.. oh I was upset.. so for the last month I’ve been relying on an old ugly […]

The Garden

So I’ve been avidly trying to start a vegetable garden in my backyard.  Last year my yield was tons and tons of coriander and 6 green beans!  Yes 6!  So this year I was determined that I would do better.. In March I got all excited and started a bunch of seeds that all frosted […]

A New Day

Okay so I’m feeling much much better than yesterday and the day before so I’m taking a fresh start approach to this.. positive attitudes only welcome here.. no poor mes or anything like that.  I’m going to be thankful for so so many things in my life. 1.  My husband.. XxOxOoXX.. enough said 2.  My […]


So yesterday I went downtown to take Safi for her Developmental Followup doctor’s appointment.  When she was born she swallowed some merconium and some got into her lungs.  She had respitory problems for about five days and was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit until she felt better.  So now, every six months we have […]

Tasty Treats of the Not So Chocolate Variety

Okay so I thought I would share some of my favourite recipes for salads with you.  I posted them in the forums but they are in a post so deep down that nobody probably will read it. Cucumber Salad Cut up tomatos, cucumber and red onion.  Add lime juice, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.  […]

Weights and Measures

So I’ve been taking measurements since March and I am so happy that I did.  It’s nice to see those numbers coming down too.  It makes you feel so good to have the hard facts about how much you’ve lost.. the scale is so unpredictable.  Seeing your body shrink make all the difference. I’m not […]

Leslie is Back and So Am I

So I found my Walk Away the Pounds again on YouTube so I’m super excited that it is back. I feel amazing after doing it again today.  It’s so much easier than doing my own version. It requires no thinking what so ever! Today I weighed in at 185.4 lbs.  I don’t know why, but […]
