hot damn!

who knew these wouldn’t be popular??
no one wanted to indulge in my treat!!!

all i know is that this is the best cheat food to get if you are not the sharing kind!!
although when the other “junk” ran out…some people were quick to reach for these.
no way – sorry – if they weren’t good for you before…i ain’t sharing!

they say…

laughter is the best medicine…and i would have to agree.

there is nothing better than getting together with friends and laughing.
you know the kind…the one that starts in the pit of your stomach…and makes you cry from joy.
i love belly laughing.
i love crying from laughing so hard.

what can be better for your health?  good friends, lots of laughs…and making memories.

While i was at a bbq, my friend and i decided to head over to the corner store.

there was a stand full of sunglasses that i of course had to look through…

and these are what i found:

aren’t they awesome???  my god.  i thought they were bad as is….and then i discovered they did tricks.  take a look lol


I DIED!!!  i mean why on earth do you need glasses like this?  why??!?!?!?

i was laughing so hard, that the guy who owned the variety store couldn’t help but start laughing himself lol
we sat there for a few minutes just laughing. (although i am pretty sure he was laughing at what the flourescent lighting did to my hair!)
sooooo funny.

My friend tried to talk me in to buying them.  I am kicking myself in the ass for not getting them now.  I just love them.  Maybe i can get my friend to buy them for me…

Anyways i couldn’t leave the store empty handed…so i ended up buying these babies.  Not as bad…right?

I am still laughing.

Hope this post made you smile today 🙂

fruit monster

this was last night’s snack:

and this was breakfast this morning:


i have been crazy addicted to my fruit this week!!!  especially my melon.

Most people would say, well bee that ain’t a bad thing – and i guess it really isn’t.

but…

sugar in my life is not a good thing – even when it comes to natural sugar.
boo – that makes me sad ’cause it’s just so damn good!!

i am giving myself this week to nurture my body and give it what it’s asking for – even if it happens to be french vanilla ice cream 🙂

next week is back to the same ol’ same ol’

this week – bring me my melon!!!!

woe is me

this bug is still kicking my ass.
ugh.

yes, i am able to walk and work (barely) and function (barely) but man i am just not feeling well.
when is this crap gonna go away??

if my calculations are correct – about 8 people out of the 14ish people that were at this party…all got this bug.
not fun.

as you probably already guessed – all logical eating has been thrown out the window.
call me crazy but i really don’t feel like a nice steak dinner with Caesar salad lol

my comfort foods have been simple – and interesting.
that is when i actually feel like i want to eat.

i have been feasting on popsicles…lots of ’em
lots of water and fruit…mmmm fruit how i’ve missed you.
yesterday for lunch i was craving a cheese and tomato sandwich on…multi grain bread.  no other bread would suffice.
what is wrong with me???
i can’t even take advantage of the fact that i am under the weather and eat something sinful?
bah.

that’s ok.
i am eating things that obviously my body is asking for.
i’ve become this fruit addict…where i cannot get enough honey dew, cantaloupe, watermelon
ohhh yummy goodness.

i am feeling a little guilty about how inactive i have been as of late.
lets face it though…not like i would be successful at the gym right now.
i would probably end up crying on the elliptical lol

(my mommy offered to come down and take care of me.  god i love that woman)

i did take the dog to the park last night, but really that consists of her running around being miss social
and me socializing with the parents.
no real exercise there…unless you count my lips moving.

i guess i am just feeling sorry for myself
woe is me.

i would appreciate some get better vibes though.
i am tired of getting MY ass kicked.  it’s time to go postal on this virus.
yeah baby

that is all
lol

creeeeepy

so i already knew what i was gonna post tomorrow.

like i said a couple of posts ago…i am getting alot of quotes coming my way.

there was one that spoke to me but i didn’t want to overwhelm you guys so i thought i’d post them one at a time.

tonight i was checking email and facebook…and one of my groups – Couch to 5k posted the exact quote i’ve been holding on to for days.
so i thought i wouldn’t wait until the morning and share it with you now.

creepy the way things happen…the way the universe speaks to you.

good night friends 🙂

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!!!!

last nights dinner

i decided to try out a new recipe last night

I found a recipe on-line for Bruschetta Chicken Casserole.

it’s a little higher in carbs but it’s not so bad if you are careful with your portion size.

here was my dinner…and it was delish.  and yes…i am totally on a green bean kick lately

eating disorder?

do you think a tv advertisement could trigger an eating disorder?

i read an article on yahoo today.  a commercial was pulled from tv because they were worried that it may “trigger” an eating disorder.

i am not too sure how i feel about this.

here is the commercial:

personally…i found it rather amusing.  the way the lady is justifying eating a piece of cheesecake.
don’t we all do that???

i know that if i eat something a little to rich or sweet…something that is not typically on my diet…i have conversations with myself…
if i eat this i need to go to the gym regardless if it’s my day off, if i eat this i need 15 more minutes on the elliptical.
etc etc etc.

i assure you i do not have an eating disorder.

my head is still too jumbled up to be clear on this…so what say you?  what do you think of the commercial?

Here is the article i read on yahoo.  click here to read.

please feel free to discuss!

mr. sun you tease me

i am sure i repeat myself on this blog
it’s bound to happen when you have over 300 posts!
wow…crazy ehh?

i am working from home today…which i know i have talked about before.
believe it or not, i prefer going in to the office.
everything i need is at my finger tips and on a really busy day it’s just easier.
besides…i don’t need to fend for myself when it comes to lunch…someone makes it for me!

sometimes though…there is nothing better than waking up, brewing my coffee and starting up the computer
in my jammies and bed head 🙂
today would be one of those days.

but the sun is teasing me and asking me to come outside and play.

knowing i was working from home…i did not go grocery shopping last night
being at home – gives me ample opportunity to eat…just because.
the fridge is feet away…and c’mon i gotta stretch my little legs…and my stomach lol

i am going to pick up some chicken and veggies for lunch me thinks
then….perhaps a Starbucks coffee and take a walk around the lake with the puppy.
i am never here during the day so this must feel like xmas for her!
besides…what better opportunity to get a little sun kissed.

these are the little luxuries i have when i work from home.

i gave up my gym day today to meet up with some people after work…
we are meeting at my favourite wing place.
i don’t know these people – and so i will not be eating my wings.

i am there to charm and wow…
nothing says charming like suckin’ on a chicken bone with sauce all over your face
lol
hawwwwt!
salad it is…and a gym make up day tomorrow – if i am not exhausted from shopping till i drop of course 🙂
i think the outlet malls in Niagara Falls are calling my name!!

Happy Friday my friends, have an awesome weekend!

insatiable

i think i have mentioned it here before…
it’s hard to keep track where i say what sometimes…so excuse me if i repeat myself.

i have been so hungry lately.
not your average, i feel like a snack kind of hungry.
i mean stomach growling, feeling faint kind of hungry.
it’s been like this for the past month or so.

i don’t know why my appetite has taken such a drastic turn.
i was at my parents place the other day…and they always make sure they feed me well.
they even purposely make a lot of food so i can take leftovers home.
they feed me so much, often times i think i will blow.
seriously.
i got back from their place and what happened? my stomach was growling, to the point i am sure that my neighbours could hear it.
what is up with me???

so enter this morning.
my stomach was growling before i even got outta bed.
i have never in my life been this insatiable!

i usually keep a stash of goodies in my drawer at work…like peanuts, or something small i can snack on to make it through to lunch.

i opened my drawer this morning…and nadda.  not a nut to be found (other than me of course)
there’s gum but i’m pretty sure that doesn’t count.
there is nothing in that drawer i can eat…
there is a kaleidoscope and origami paper…but c’mon…i ain’t that hungry!

2 more hours until i can feed the monsters in my belly
until then, water it is.
