On the mend

Well I am back at work today, I would say I am about 90% better. I am hoping to be 100% by the end of the week. I am really thankfull I had the flu this year I think it really helped me from being really badly sick. Today my plan is to eat healthy, drink 3 liters of water and if I feel up to after work gets some excerise in. I have a lot of work to catch up on so that will hopefully make the day feel better. HTabbey thanks for the well wishes when I posted I was sick. I hope everyone has a great day.

I am home sick today but feelin a bit better than yesterday. I am going to do my best to still be on plan and drink at least two liters of water, but will skip the excerise. I am pretty sure I have a touch of the flu, but since I had the flu shot it shouldn't be too bad hopefully.

Rainy Monday

Well its rainning here again, which I am getting really sick of, well it ever be warm again? The butter chicken turned out really well, it taster really good. I think that I will make it again, actually I shouldn't take all the credit Battery helped clean too so it was fun to do together. I had the worst sleep last night I was tossing and turning all night so I am really wiped out this morning and feeling a bit sick, I am not sure if it is from the lack of sleep or if I am actually getting sick. I am at work now so I will see how I do, if I don't start feeling better I might just head home. My plan for today is to eat on plan, drink at least 3 liters of water and try to get in 15 mintues of kickboxing.

Butter Chicken

I woke up this morning and I was going to go for a run but Battery was already outside sweeping and getting rid of branches and stuff from the trees. So I went and helped him for 45 mintues and it was quite a workout. I don't think I need to go running now. The rest of today I think is just going to be relaxer. I am making Battery Butter Chicken for dinner, I have never made it before and I don't really cook, so I hope it turns out well. We both love Butter chicken but have never found a kind precooked that is good, so I am trying my hand at it. I ran it through the tracker and it works out to 8 points not bad. I will let you know how it turns out. Well I am off to have breakfast now.

Saturday, April 26, 2008

Well I had a great day. After getting back from shopping I had a nice relaxing bath and read a trashy magazine, I like to do that every once in awhile. It was really nice to come home to a fresh cleaned house. Its good to know I can relax for the rest of the weekend, usually I leave most of my cleaning for sunday, so its nice to be done early. When Battery got home we headed out to see The Forbiden kingdom. I am not a huge fan of those movies but it was pretty good, since I went with him he said he would take me to see Sex and The City I am looking forward to that. Rest of tonight is just going to be spent relaxing. I am going to post some pictures of my winnie-the-pooh and tigger toaster/waffle iron.

A new day

I am feeling really good today. We had subway last night and I stayed right on my points. Today I got up early and dropped Battery off at work. Then I came home and cleaned the whole house. I am just about to head out to take my grandparents grocerry shopping. I am going to get a lot of healthy food. I am so excited Battery bought me a winnie-the-pooh and tigger toaster and waffle maker off amazon. I am a huge winnie-the-pooh and tigger fan, I have so much of there stuff. So I can't wait until it gets here.

Last Night

It was my grandparents 60th Anniversary last night, so we went out for dinner. I tried to take them somewhere nice but they wanted to go to Denny's. As you all know Denny's on weight watchers isn't excatly fun, I couldn't find anything for 12 points which is what I left. So anyways I ordered steak and potatos with salad. I weighed myself this morning I was 176.6, I have been this much in 2 years. I am hoping it was a false weighin but it came me the kick in the ass I needed. No more screwing around I am getting this weight off for good no matter what. No big plans for the weekend, Battery is working tomorrow, so I am going to take my granparents grocerry shopping. I am going to the dentist after work for my cleaning not looking forward to that but hopefully it will be last for at least 6 months. I hope everyone has a great day.

Self Sabatoge

I really think that is what I am doing to myself I don't know why. I want to lose weight and get to goal. I want to feel pretty and confidant again. But for some reason I do really good for a few weeks and then I go and screw it up. Its a couple weeks screw up and the only place it gets me is back at a bad weigh. I don't know why I keep doing this to myself, but I am hoping if I post this that it might help me face the problem and work at solving. I really want to do well and get back to goal by the end summer. So I can feel good when we take our vacation this year, we are doing a beach vacation and I actually want to feel confidant and not look at everyone else and wish I looked like them.

Totally Off Plan

Well the last week has been a bad one weight watchers wise. I am totally off track between the sore tooth and time off work and it being Battery's birthday. There have been so many meals out its been crazy. The only good I thing I have noticed is that I have been making better choices. On saturday I had a chicken quesdilla with salad instead of fries. I have been snacking on rice cakes rather than chips. We went to the aquarium yesterday so all the walking around was a bit of excerise. I will post some pictures below. Well I am back to work tomorrow, fully being on plan and excersing.

Weigh In Day

Well I weight in this morning and I was down 0.2. Not great but I was pretty happy with it since I have been in pain all week. Not really eating my points and no excerise at all. I hope my teeth will feel better next week and then I can get back into the swing of things.

I have monday and tuesday off work and I am really looking forward to a bit of a break. I think if the weather is nice we are going to go to Vancouver Aquarium and make to mini golf so it should be a lot of fun. Tonight I am going to see my best friends, she is pregenat and due in June but has been put on bed rest, since she went into mild labour on the weekend. So I am going over to visit and take over some presents we bought.

My teeth are still sore but not as bad so hopefully I am getting there and I will feel way better soon. I hope everyon has a wonderful friday!

Back from the Dentist

Well I went to the dentist this morning, he looked at my tooth and then took an x-ray. There is nothing wrong with my teeth. He thinks it may be possible that I have been grinding my teeth. So hopefully it gets better and I am pain free soon. I looked at the scale this morning and I am down .2. Not great but considering I haven't excerised all week and haven't been eating all my points I was happy with it. Tonight DH is off to the pub with friends after work so I have the house to myself not sure what I am going to do yet. I just bought Melrose Place Season 4 on dvd, so I think I will start watching that and maybe get some subway for dinner. Then I am going to pick him up at 7:30pm, hopefully he is ready on time. He has a habit of not being quite done when I get there but that is okay.
I think with my laptop I might start using it when its plugged in. The battery is supposed to last for 3 hours but it seems to me it doesn't last very long at all.
Well I hope everyone has a great day, now go drinks some water!

Wednesday, April 16, 2008


It’s a Compaq dual and I love it. Still trying to get used to the mouse on it and not a normal one. The only draw back is the battery doesn't last too long. Is it better to use it and keep it plugged in? But other than that I am really enjoying being able to use the computer in my room while I am watching TV or in the living room.
Well exercising is just not happening for me this week. I worked out on Sunday but other than that nothing. My tooth has been really sore the last few days and I just can't face it. I feel guilty but I know I have to take care of myself first. So I am hoping to stay the same weight as last week. I will know in two days how it went. I have a dentist appt tomorrow morning so hopefully they will be able to fix me up.
I hope everyone has a great day.

Im so excited

My laptop was waiting for me when I got home. I am so excited its finally here, I have always wanted one. It seems like it was worth the extra money. I didn't end up working out tonight, my back hurt when I got home and I was distracted my the laptop. Other than that I am still on track for the day, I ate well, drank my water. I was actually a point under which is okay. My tooth is still sore but not as bad. Well I am going to hit bed soon. I hope everyone has a great night.

Monday Already?!?!

I had a really good on plan weekend. I stayed within my points and my extra points and I am feeling good. I worked yesterday but only for 15 mintues I was pretty tired. DH is having a problem with his wisdom teeth, I have to see if I can get him in the dentist this week. I am also having some tooth pain in one of my back teeth. Everytime I have anything with sugar in it hurts. So I am going to also see if they can fit me in this week. I had a filling done on that tooth so I am not sure if the filling is coming out of what. I think its better to get it checked out then wait on it. My plan for today is 20 mintue power scuplt after work.

Oh great!!!!!!

My mom just called, we are having pizza for dinner now. So I decided to use my weight from this morning and log my weight today. I am still going to go home and excerise and I won't over do it with the Pizza. I just thought if I have pizza tonight and then weigh in tomorrow I wasn't going to have a realistic weigh in.

Holy on plan Batman

Well I have been on plan all week and I feel great. I went over my points by 3 last night but hopefully it won't affect me too much. It looks like I am down a pound from last week, but my offical weigh in is tomorrow morning so I will know for sure then. Only problem is when I signed up for online I put my weight in at 172 instead of 174. So I guess if I stay at 173 I will be up a pound. Oh well what can you do. Last night I did 15 mintues of Pilates and 10 mintues of hand weights. Tonight I am going to try the biggest loser cardio max. I am sure that will kick me in the butt. Then I am going to have friday and saturday off from excerise. We are going down to Stanley Park so we will be walking around on Saturday so that will be some excerise, but the fun kind.

Dh has promised me is he going to pick up Alvin and the Chipmunks for me after work, so I think we will watch that tonight or tomorrow. I can't wait to see it. I know its a kids film but I love. I am girl that loves Finding Nemo afterall.

Well I hope everyone has a great day!

Biggest Loser

I had a good on plan day yesterday and I am feeling good. There is so drama at work with a girl I work with, we used to be friends but she has turned on me. It hurt my feelings and I don't what I did to cause it, but on a plus size I haven't turned to emotional eating over it. Last night it was raining so I finally broke open my biggest loser power scuplt DVD. I did the step one 20 mintues and it was really good. There was one part with pushups that I couldn't really do. But other than that I feel like I got a really good workout. I am really feeling it today, but its a good sore. Tonight I am going to do the rest of the 40 mintue pilates dvd that I started on Monday. It seems like I have finally gotten myself in the habit of working out as soon as I get home from work. Right now my goal is to work out 20 mintues a day 4-5 times a week. In a few weeks I am going to try and up it to 30 mintues a day.

Pilates finally....

I did Pilates last night finally. My dvd was 40 mintues long and I did half of it. I will do the other half tomorrow night. Tonight I was hoping to go for a walk/jog and do weights, but the weather is pretty bad. I might just do a 10 mintue biggest loser workout and then the weights. I guess I will see what it is like once I get off work. I can feel the Pilates in my abs today and my knee. I think I must have turned it out. I am glad that I finally got back into excerising again. I know it will really help me get back to goal and stay there. When I do I will tackly the non smoking again. I quit for four months and then started again. I am having 3-4 smokes a day now, not too bad considering I just to smoke a pack a day. I am just taking it one day at a time.

Bad Night

Well I did no excerise last night at all. I got home and my parents were celebrating my brother finally got a job. So DH and I ended up joining them for a couple drinks. Then after that it was dinner and I wasn't really in any condition to work out. I tried to go to bed early and then I was tossing and turning for most of the night. Thank god its Friday!

I bought a laptop off ebay last night, I got a good deal on it. Only problem is I just realized they are sending it UPS. I heard that anything coming from the states VIA UPS is horrible and they charge huge brockerage fees. So I am not looking forward to that. Its due to get here next Friday so hopefully I don't have to pay too much.

Feeling Good

I went for my walk/jog last night and it was pretty good. I only actually end up runing around the track half way and walked the rest and then a second time. I guess I am more out of shape then I want but I felt good for going out there and doing something. My scale is still sitting at 173.8. So I have gained some weight but at least I am not back to 175. I am going to do some Pilates tonight after work so that should be good too. I have decided to go back to doing weight watchers online. With stuff going on I find it hard to make it for the meetings and this way I fiqure I have no excuse for missing a weigh in. I joined the us site because it was cheaper I don't see much of a difference. The only thing is they don't do the point quiz they are still doing based on weight which puts me at 22 points a day. But I don't mind because its only two down from before. Well I hope everyone has a great day.

Chugging Away

Last night didn't go to plan I had a crappy day at work and got yelled at by a customer not fun! Instead of going for a walk/run I ended up doing weights and crunches instead. Tonight I am going to try Pilates again. I used to do Pilates 3 times a week for 20 mintues and it really changed my body. I haven't done it in forever so I am trying to get back into it. My problem is that I hate excersing I hate spending time doing it. So I really need to work hard to force myself to do it. I wish I was one of those people that actually like it.

So far today is off to a crappy start, I had a bad sleep and woke up with a plugged ear and then DH and I got into a stupid argument over nothing so that hasn't put in the best mood. Hopefully work will be better today than yesterday.

Day Two

So I didn't work out at all yesterday. I was so sore still from my workout on Sunday that I took a rest day. I don't think I would have made it through longer than 5 mintues of excerise. So tonight I am going to head to the track and I am planning on walking a lap, then jogging one, then walking, jogging one and then one more walking. I am also going to do some weights. I really want to get in shape for the summer. I am pretty good at eating well during the week, its the weekends where I need help. I have a problem of just wanting to eat anything and everything in sight. I am going back to trying not to eat chips again. I am going to try go for healither choices popcorn or rice cakes.
