day-cation

boo

the day-cation is officially over.
funny how when you are having a great time… time passes so quickly!!!

it was a great weekend.
sigh
and it’s over
a very expensive weekend – but you only live once!
see my new stylin’ hat?  i know the picture sucks but look at my bee-utiful hat!!!!

it was such an American weekend lol

a few years ago they got rid of all of the Outback restaurants in Canada.
i was devastated.  i loved the Outback!!!!!!
so as we were driving to our hotel to check in – what do we pass?????
AN OUTBACK!!!!
within walking distance!!!!
craaaaaaazy

i don’t have to tell you where we ate
and i will not tell you what i ate (but i will show you something i ate lol)

i was soooo very bad…i have the headache today to show for it

it was an amazing weekend.  lots of walking, laughing, eating…and wine 🙂
it was purrrfect.
i am glad we got to walk around and take things in – burn off dinner…take in the view.

i’ve been there before…but each and every time i go, i see through new eyes.
i have amazing memories and not so amazing memories of that place
but each time i go…it just keeps getting better and better – this is one of the pictures from the hotel.  not a bad view huh?

For breakfast we went to IHOP
again, i didn’t think we had IHOP’s in Canada…so of course we just had to eat there
i had strawberry banana pancakes
i thought i died and went to heaven…and then so did my belly.  i could not eat all of it…tooooooo much!!

wow – by Sunday my poor belly looked like i was 4 months pregnant.  i wish it didn’t dislike carbs so much!!!!!

I have lots of pictures and videos…but none that i will share here..although i gotta say, the videos are so awesome that the whole world should witness them…especially me belting out adele –  rolling in the deep lol

i’ll save all that for the blog next door.

no gym for me tonight…no time – apparently the hotel i stayed at had an amazing gym -alas i did not see it!!!

this being an adult stuff is for the birds.  i just wanna play!!!!

stress eating

i got some upsetting and completely unexpected news before lunch time
nothing i care to get in to here
but lets just say…it left me feeling stressed out, anxious and defeated.
completely.

i don’t deal well with stress.
i either bottle it up inside or try to nurture myself with food.

i had this upsetting conversation right before lunch.

i went downstairs and suddenly all logic and common sense disappeared

they were serving these:

and so i ate them.  to feel better.  ’cause you know how that works.

i don’t feel better.  actually i am pretty sure i feel worse.
and sleepy
throw my guilt in to the mix and you got one awesome bee.

ugh.  i guess i will be working my ass off tonight…literally.

never too old

to sit on my mom’s lap 🙂


I hope everyone had a wonderful mommy’s day!!

We had a great day of bad, bad food, way too much sun (i got a burn) and lots of love.

Today i am grateful for my mom.  If you still are fortunate enough to have your mommy in your life, hold her a little tighter…today and always.

And now…a little lesson, taught by lil’  bee.

tis the season!

i found that being a little “free” with what i eat on the weekends
works well for me.
i allow myself to eat things i generally do not…and it seems to take huge cravings away.

so my big cheat this weekend..(after a kick ass work out might i add) was a chicken sub on a whole grain bread
wow – big cheat ehh? lol
i can’t even cheat right.

it was good and hit the spot and really did not make me feel guilty for straying.

but a couple of hours later???
oh.mah.gawd.

i was not feeling well at all.
i felt sooooo unwell…and there was that reminder why i eat the way i eat.

and you know what’s worse?
as i was laying in bed feeling sorry for myself…i was hungry!!!

that never happens when i am low carbing.

last night i could have eaten myself out of house and home.

lesson temporarily learned 🙂

have you looked outside?  opened the window?
it’s spring out there today!  woohoo!
you know what that means???
BBQ SEASON!!!!!
oops sorry for yelling lol

Spring/summer – my favourite time of year
and also the best time for all your low carb favourites grilled on the barbie.

Sub?  meh, bring on my BBQ’d steak any day baby!

the day after

well, christmas came and went faster than the blink of an eye.
i wrote all about my time on the blog next door…and it’s totally not health/weight loss related…so i won’t go into it here.

i’d like to say i was “good” but i wasn’t all that great.
lets just say there was cheesecake and baklava.

i will say that all the leftovers that i brought home
are all on plan.
i may have slipped a few chocolates in to my bag, but they are not for me…i swear!!!

i will make sure i get in a good cardio work out tomorrow…or should i say today.
oy vay.

how was your christmas??

now, i am more than ready…completely 100% ready to go on vacation
let the relaxing and mind numbing times begin.

if anyone can find a brown spotted dalmatian and slip her in to my stocking
well…that would just make my year.

woe is me.

oh…and i had the most wonderful skype date ever.
maybe that’s why i am wide awake at 2am.

2 more sleeps.
can’t wait!!!!!

change of heart

last night was my double down night.
i was determined to have one.
 
i got in line at KFC…looked at the picture of this “sandwich”
and suddenly felt really unsure about it all.
 
honestly…it just looked so unhealthy.
 
i turned to Elle Bee and said, “i really want something healthier”
 
my body was still feeling the effects of a kick ass walk…that was longer than my usual one
i was feeling good..accomplished
and i just felt that if i ate the Double Down…all that work would have seemed such a waste.
my heart just wasn’t in to it.
or maybe my heart was just warning me that it wasn’t the best thing to be feeding it.
 
Knowing full well that i had gone to KFC prepared for a cheat…
my options opened….
I have been craving a sub for months now….and lately i’ve been wanting pizza
So off we went for subs 🙂
 
i had a pizza sub on a hearty whole grain bread
i killed two birds with one stone
i felt that it was a “healthy” cheat in the end
(oh….and a tiny, itty bitty peanut butter cookie lol)
 
yes, my belly was not the most impressed with the carb consumption
but i would hate to see what my body would have felt like if i actually did the double down for dinner.
 
a lot of the comments on my facebook page yesterday were against me doing it
so to my facebook friends…you will be pleased to know…that i did not
i could not.
and probably never will.
 
i was more than willing to…at the beginning
but i had a change of heart.
 
two thumbs down for the double downer.
