what’s shakin’

it’s been 14 days of clean eating.  i mean spotless, by the book clean.
there were the 2 onion rings yesterday…but i was forced to eat them…yeah that’s right.  i had no choice 😉

the first couple of days were rough.  i was cranky and unhappy.  after that – smooth sailing.
the same thing always happens when i fall off plan.  i dread going back on it – and then when i am actually on it – i cannot wrap my head around why i even stopped.

i make sure i do alot of prep the night before.  i make sure i have enough to snack on during the day so i don’t crave crap.
it’s expensive this eating healthy thing – but again, worth it.
and my dinners are planned for the week.  it keeps me on track – who knew i’d have a dinner schedule!

i pulled out my capri’s this morning.  i haven’t worn them since last summer – so i was really afraid that they would not fit.
they fit 🙂
they got stuck at my thunder thighs (every pair of pants gets stuck on my thighs – again – thanks mom)
but they fit.

I’ve noticed a difference in me even in the 2 weeks.  like, instead of looking 6 months pregnant, i am looking a comfortable 3. lol
had i not started eating healthy again these pants would have zero hope of fitting.

I have yet to do my Zumba on the wii.  My wii was not working 😦
i was sad about that.
anyways – it was fixed last night and i am ready to go as soon as i get home.
i put it on last night and just watched from the couch – for one song…
i was getting into the music and it seems that just by moving my body a little – i was able to burn 23 calories lmao
too funny.
but yes – i can’t wait.

the gym called me the other day. it was a lady i have never spoken to – never seen – who knows, maybe she is new.
anyways she called to tell me she missed me.
awwww that just warmed my itty bitty heart!
she doesn’t even know me but she misses me.  how sweet.
it’s not my money they are missing cause they still get that – so i don’t know what their angle is.
hmmm – can you tell i don’t trust gyms?
don’t worry my little gym – i plan on returning to you.

i haven’t had a glass of wine in 2 weeks.  i think i will celebrate tomorrow by pouring myself a nice glass of red and sit outside and enjoy the night sky.

and that my friends is what’s new in the healthy world of me!

Happy Bunny Day!!

i have been able to avoid all the Easter chocolates this year
i don’t know how – but i have.
i guess it’s because i am not a big sugar person to begin with
but come on – those Easter chocolates are absolutely delish!
mini eggs.
must i say more???

i’ve been able to roam the aisles at Shoppers – aisle after chocolaty aisle
and i haven’t even wrestled with the back and forth – the should i or shouldn’t i banter.
(i am however slightly obsessed with all the cute stuffed animals – for my niece and nephew of course)

So anyways – Easter is here this weekend…and i made it chocolate free!
there is no chocolate in my home – or at my desk – or in my car.
yay me.

i walked in to work this morning – and found this waiting for me on my desk.

well – i can’t say i didn’t try…and technically it isn’t chocolate
lol

Happy Easter everyone!!!

i’ve got da fevah!

i have a serious case of spring fever!

i don’t know how it is where you are, but in my neck of the woods…the weather has been absolutely gorgeous.
i think we reached a high of 18 degrees today!!
unfortunately my life is so crazy busy, i don’t even have time to look out the window let alone go outside and actually enjoy it.

i was on the phone working, trying to eat some lunch and taking a peek out the window – wishing i could be outside, feeling the sun on my face.
oh well – mamma’s gotta make a living right???

at the end of the day i got in to my car – and the whole drive home i had the windows down
it was heaven.
absolute heaven!!

i haven’t been to the gym this week.  i had every intention of going…
but with weather like this – i couldn’t bare the thought of being indoors.

all the things i had to do were floating through my head.  there was the general daily cleaning stuff still waiting for me
dinner had to be made, lunch and snacks etc etc etc
you know – i am going to make an amazing housewife some day 😉

anyways…

so – i decided to go back to my original work out.  my long walks.
this time i have my puppy as a companion – and she gives me a good run for my money let me tell you.
i live in such a beautiful part of the city – there is always something to see – some critter to meet.
i love it here…so i want to explore it as much as i can.

i am still sore from Zumba class the other night
my crazy instructor had me doing some crazy moves with my hips
crazy i tell ya
she’s crazy!!!  (in a totally good way)
and in case you are wondering – nope…i still don’t have rhythm.
and yup…i still don’t care
lol

i feel a walk in my whole body.  i ache and am a little sore and i love it!
not only is it good for me…but it’s good for my crazy hyper puppy – who generally doesn’t get enough exercise during the week.
so it’s a win-win

the house is finally settled.
i am ready for my day tomorrow.

my neighbours are sitting outside relaxing by candlelight
i think i am going to pour myself a glass of wine and follow their lead
how could i not.

a little bit of sunshine

is amazing for the soul.

i had some family come stay with me this weekend
there is nothing like waking up to a smiling baby…happy and content with the world.
simply heaven.

i don’t have alot to say…

i am just settling down from a lovely weekend.
so much baby love – i think my uterus is going to explode!
the biological clock sounds louder and louder every time i get my baby lovin’ fix.

it’s great being an auntie.  amazingly awesome.
but i can’t help but wonder how much more amazing being a mother would be.
(i am sure i’ll get over it in a couple of days lol)

today – we had our first real taste of spring.  16 degrees (61F for my american peeps)

we decided to go for a long walk by the lake (awesome exercise)

it’s amazing how a little bit of sunshine can lift your spirits
it seems everyone was out enjoying the day, smiles painted on their faces
as if we all had discovered some big, unspoken secret.

it’s no secret.

spring is in the air.

and who isn’t in love with spring?

the cold is over, everything is coming to life….
the sun rediscovering your pale white skin.

there’s no secret.

a little bit of sunshine…amazing for a weary soul.

the universe said – let it go

i love the freedom working from home gives me.
i don’t do it often, but oh how i love it when i do.

today, when lunch time rolled around…i got into my work out clothes
and went to the gym and spent my half hour off – doing some cardio.

i loved it!!!!

when i got there, i forgot to take my sweatshirt off – i suppose because i was so cold

i see other people all bundled up working out and think to myself – my lord that person is going to die from the heat…how do they do it?!?!

but it was good!!!  i sweat more – and so i felt like i got more out if it.
it was great – and the place was a ghost town which is even better!
i got home – and went back to work.

it was a productive week.

now on to completely unrelated news…and a shout out to the universe:

as i was in my car today – i looked up and looked at an air freshener i’ve had for years – seriously – at least 5 years.
my ex had given to me it as a gift of some sort.

obviously it didn’t work as an air freshener for the longest time…but i loved it.
it is a little stiletto heel – and i have never been able to find one like it…
so i kept it – for its cuteness factor.
i have zero sentimental attachment to this thing…it’s just something i like to look at.

so as i was driving i was just wondering to myself if i should just throw it away
yeah it was cute – but it wasn’t anything i needed…and i don’t want to hold on to things that have no place in my life (like gifts from ex’s)

as i pondered this for a few minutes, i looked up at it – and literally in that exact moment
it fell off my rear view mirror and on the the floor.
the part that held it there completely disintegrated.

i guess i got my answer ehh?
another lesson in letting go.

i love me some universe!

hope you all have a great weekend – it’s going to be a good one!!!

i’ve fallen and i can’t get up

well i went and got my head read last night

my awesome fantabulous friend took me 🙂

the whole experience was quick and somewhat painless…and not exactly what i expected…

i popped one of my pills and i was ready to go.
i didn’t feel any different, i didn’t think i was relaxed or calm…
i felt really nervous about laying on that thing and getting  pushed into a small rabbit hole!!!

my friend suggested meditating with my eyes closed…i thought it was a great idea
until all those people they hired to annoy me started banging on the machine

ok – so it wasn’t people – it was the actual machine.  it was the loudest thing i have ever experienced!
they had given me head phones but the noise was so loud that i couldn’t even hear the music!!
i actually had a headache when it was all over.

but it was over and that’s all that mattered.

it took me about half an hour to get all my jewelery back in – i have a lot of piercings apparently..
anyways…

i thought i deserved a glass of wine for everything i had gone through

it went down good.  it was delicious

and it totally knocked me on my ass.
i mean down for the count.

i am aware you are not supposed to mix any prescription meds with booze
i get it
but i didn’t even think the pills did anything in the first place!!!!

i was sadly mistaken. so so mistaken lol

i could not get outta bed this morning.

all day i’ve been walking around in a haze, just wanting to sleep.
and that’s not cool when my work life is super crazy busy.

it is so going to be an early night.

no – there was no gym tonight.  i couldn’t imagine surviving in the state i am in.
i am just a puddle of yuck.

i was gonna cook – but LB saved me from it all and brought dinner from my favourite place!!

on my agenda tonight?   chill – walk the pup and then straight to bed.

hopefully i will be back to fabulous, incredible bee in the morning 🙂

i still rock

i survived my first day – it’s a miracle!

i was crazy busy at work, but that’s to be expected after having a 3 week vacation.  it was nice to reconnect with my friends – although the cookie monster was off sick today.  boo.

as for my diet – easy breezy. it’s much easier to stick to plan when i am at work.  i have so many choices that i don’t feel the need to eat something off plan – although it’s tempting when it’s stir fry day 🙂

i hit my wall extremely early today – like around 1:30.  i could hear my bed calling my name.
but i made it.  i was so very busy the day just flew by.

yes, in case you are wondering – i made it to the gym.  there was no way i was passing that up.  it was crystal clear to me this morning as i was getting dressed that i could not afford to miss another day.
my pants are a little snug in the butt…yeah i still fit in them but oh boy are they a tight fit lol.
talk about motivation!

it was a tough one.  i mean it felt great, but i only managed 35 minutes of cardio.  i was aiming for 45.  that’s ok…it’s better not to push it the first day.

i am off to get my head read tomorrow night.  no not a shrink…but i have my MRI in the evening.  i filled my prescription for my Ativan and am just getting ready to give it a test run (highly encouraged by my doctor..not just for a fun night!)

while i was off work, i didn’t have a headache every day…so i think the solution to all of this is to just quit my job and live on love.  next step is to get my peepers checked.

anyways, that’s my update.  i had a super productive day – and survived day 1.

why?  cause i totally rock!
