Weight: 164.0

Yesterday I made beef and brown rice wraps for dinner. I used my new food processor to make a hummus spread for the wraps and used all kinds of good veggies (lots of onion - I had wicked onion breath afterwards!), and topped them off with spinach and shredded mozza cheese. Now you know what i'll be having for meals for the next few days ;)

This morning I went for a 1.5 mile walk with Walking Buddy and I could sure tell that I haven't done much lately by way of exercise. My calves were sore after just a few minutes of walking! It was horribly painful. I am wearing my flip-flops to work today because I just can't bear the thought of wearing heels!

Today I hope to get the grass cut and pull some of the larger weeds out from the big flower bed. They're starting to take over, and while that was okay for a while because they hid my strawberries from the birds, my flower bed is now beginning to look like a wild jungle area. The irises have finished blooming (I should have taken pics) and now the tiger lilies are beginning to bloom. And the ground cover moss that is eating its way towards the grass is blooming a bright yellow. So nice. Maybe i'll take some pics once I clear out those weeds!

I brought walnuts and yogurt to work with me but I haven't had any breakfast yet besides my standard coffee. I need to wake up first!

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

MMMMmmmmm your food sounds fab! I love hummus, but have never tried making it myself (silly me!) have fun in the yard today, I plan to do some more in mine too after class.

Oh that dinner sounds fantastic, must try it!

What's your hummus recipe? I've tried making it before but it wasn't very nice =P

Have fun working in the garden. I cant wait to find time to spend on mine! I may need to hire a babysitter just so I can get it done!! lol

My extra long, long weekend was awesome!

On Friday (Canada Day), I went to our Centennial Park as the tourism committee put together some fun activities and cake to celebrate Canada Day (I believe Canada is now 144 years old). I spent a good three hours out there and was baked like a lobster by the time I got home! Yikes! And then I decided to pull some weeds and spend more time outside! It was so gorgeous out that I really had no choice ;)

On Saturday I ran around taking pictures of a wedding party, and then enjoying an evening of dancing and fun! I took a female friend with me to the wedding and we are both single so we had fun eyeing up all the candy and flirting a little with some pretty handsome devils! It was fun.

Yesterday I took Dog for a nice long walk in the morning and enjoyed some more sun. I wore sunblock this time, don't worry.

Unfortunately I didn't get around to cutting the grass, so i'm hoping to do that tomorrow as long as it doesn't rain. Today I want to pick up the mail and get some groceries.

This weekend i'm heading to the lake to do some camping with a few friends. I can't wait! I hope the weather holds up because i'll be sleeping in a tent ;)

Yesterday: coffee, water, banana muffin, chicken and rice, cupcake, beef and potatoes.

Great, awesome, exciting, super-fantastic news!!! I got the raise I was starting to think I would have to kiss goodbye! My boss told me yesterday afternoon and I could hardly do anything for the rest of the workday except vibrate from pure joy. This certainly will help with my monthly budget demands... I am so grateful!

I texted 'A' yesterday to let him know how much it was going to cost to repair my car. He said he'd pay for it, so I hope that holds true. Anyways, then he asked about the date we were supposed to go on... I told him I would be busy for awhile... tried to brush him off... then he starts asking me all these questions... what do I like to do... blah blah blah... it was like he was trying to keep me dangling, keep me interested! I thought it was ironic that suddenly when i'm trying to brush him off he seems to become even more interested.

Well, this is the last day of work for me this week! Woohoo! Tonight I am playing ball and possibly going for a few drinks afterwards. Then, tomorrow morning I take my car in to get fixed and I have a tonne of stuff to do in the backyard because I am lazy and can't seem to get my butt off the couch after work ;) Friday is Canada Day and there are some activities happening in town; then Saturday a wedding and Sunday - recover!!!

I am really bad at posting on the weekends, so if you don't hear from me until Monday - Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Yesterday: coffee, water, banana muffin, pb sandwich, dried mango, chicken and rice, mocha.

I couldn't sleep last night because of the extra coffee I had in the evening while visiting friends. Yuck. I don't know how much sleep I eventually got, but I know it definitely wasn't enough!

I vacuumed yesterday evening. That's all.

This morning I was up early to go for a 1.5 mile walk with Walking Buddy. Actually we went 1.7 miles ;) I'll take it!

There are a lot of things I want to accomplish today. I want to take Dog for a walk after work, do the dishes, weed and trim some flower beds outside, and wax legs. Only two more workdays left in the week!

Friday: toast with pb, coffee, water, chicken and pasta, cupcake, yogurt with walnuts, red pepper slices, potatoes, peas and sausage links. One beer for dessert ;)

I took Dog for a walk after work. 'A' was visiting my neighbour Friday evening, and accidentally backed into my car when he was leaving. Apparently he'd had a bad day and just wanted to share the misery ;) I was a little ticked as I try to keep my car well maintained and this is just something else i'll have to repair now. He broke the shield off of the back light, so i'm hoping it's not going to cost an arm and a leg to replace it. 'A' will be paying for it, whatever the cost is.

Saturday: toast with pb and eggs, water, banana muffin, can't remember what I had for lunch, a smattering of crackers with mozza cheese, a few potato chips, two hot dogs, cucumber salad, potato salad, cupcake for dessert. More beer, some really fruity smoothies with vodka, and a shot of... huh... um... well then. A shot of something.

I was dragging my butt in the morning, but I did manage to cut the grass and do some weeding in the backyard. The rest of the day was spent prepping for the BBQ, which was a lot of fun! Yes, Hungry Tiger was there and yes, she was definitely wanting to shine in my light. Hungry Tiger and her friends left at some point to go to another party, but she ended up coming back to our party later that night. She gloated to my friend that 'A' had been texting her all night, and mentioned how she really wanted to 'get some'. Then she announced that she sent me a very personal text message and that I should read it. She was asking me if I liked 'A', which I thought was the first mature thing she'd done in weeks. I told her to go for it if she liked him, because I was on the fence about him and my instincts were telling me he was bad news.

I mean, really. Everytime he's around, something bad happens. And I don't think it's okay to flirt with two girls who are friends with each other. Or supposed to be friends... whatever! Too much drama! So I told her she should go for it, then 'S' showed up and I had to listen to him talk - gosh, he sure loves the sound of his own voice. Then I wanted to leave and go home, but that took forever because Hungry Tiger wanted to drive home, and 'S' wanted to come over to my place (no. way. not. going. to. happen.) but finally I got home around 4am.

Sunday: coffee, bacon, egg, muffin, hashbrowns, water, homemade pizza on thins - pasta sauce, red pepper, cucumber, spinach, sausage.

I felt great yesterday, although I didn't have much energy for anything. I got some more weeding done, helped the hostess from the night before clean up, and took Dog for a walk.

This morning I was going to get up early, but that didn't happen. And then I was going to walk to work but that also didn't happen. So I will take Dog for a walk after work, get my car checked out, and have some friends over later to discuss a camping trip we're taking soon. Busy day! Thank goodness I have Thursday and Friday off!

First off, I wouldn't call the "Hungry Tiger " a friend, in fact it is just the opposite of what a friend is..You should feel sorry for her because she is so pathetic that she waits around for scraps, your leftovers...As far as A goes, well he is far from a catch..Any guy tha is playing two "friends" against each other is BAD news...Maybe he has such a run of bad luck is karma's way of showing him..LOL.. Girl let the Tiger have some sloppy seconds and for you time to build a stronger, confident harem that will serve you and only you...JMO

hopingforhealth on 06/27/2011:
Lots of drama. It sounds like lame Hungry Tiger's nickname is earned, and I agree with V that A is lame if he's playing friends off of each other. Besides, if a guy hit my car, it would be hard for him to maintain his appeal. :)

I finally came down off the med high I was on yesterday; I opted out of taking anything before bed last night so I woke up this morning still feeling sick but with a clear head ;)

Yesterday: coffee, water, chicken and pasta, dried mango, chicken and pasta. Boring. However... drum roll... no peanut butter OR bread! Woo!

I had to run uptown after work to get some seed packets because Mom was coming over to help me plant the garden. It took us close to two hours, but we finally got it done. We planted potatoes, two types of beans, beets, onion, carrots, swiss chard, cucumber, two types of squash, zuchinni and three types of peas. Holy moly that sounds like a lot. I only hope it comes up because it's been planted so late in the season. Anyways, i'm counting that as my exercise for yesterday since I am not feeling the best and decided to nix the running for now.

This morning I went for a 1.5 mile walk. Actually, it may have been a little less than that because we weren't being quick little bunnies today - I think both Walking Buddy and I were feeling tired and cranky =0!

Breakfast was toast with peanut butter and now i'm having some coffee and water.

Tonight I plan to cut the grass if it doesn't rain before then, and then I have a dinner date with a friend. If I can pull some weeds before then, all the better.

Friday! Have a great weekend everyone!

It's amazing to me how you're able to garden, walk, etc. = get things done, when you're sick! I'm totally imobilized!

Good Morning!

(↑ this chipper attitude is brought to you by BENADRYL... because BENADRYL gives back)

Unfortunately, Benadryl was the only cold/allergy medicine I had in the cupboard at home, besides Buckleys. I just couldn't do the Buckleys. So I popped a Benadryl. My head is fuzzy, a full 12 hours later. I'm lucky I made it to my bed before zonking out. I'm also fairly sure that I drooled all over the pillows sometime during the night. OMGEEZIES!

Yesterday: coffee, water, chicken and pasta leftovers, dried mango, yogurt with chopped walnuts, some kind of chicken/ham combo with baked potato and salad at the meeting. PB sandwich.

I got home after the meeting, took meds, tried to keep my eyes open long enough to watch a Make it or Break it episode, and crashed. Hard. I don't even remember tossing. Or turning. At all. This is what meds can do for you, my friends... and OH! this morning I wanted to break my cell phone and it's stupid Star Trek-like alarm sounds in HALF! It was extremely slow going getting ready for work and I ended up being late. I don't know how a person can be late to work when they can drive there within five minutes and have over an hour to get ready. Must be sick.

Does any part of this entry even make sense? I tried to read over what I already wrote down, but it's like I have Attention Deficit today and also? there are tiny white bunnies floating around in my head and they're far more interesting than anything I might write here...

Ok, I exaggerated on that last part about the white bunnies.

I'm scared to work; I have a sneaking suspicion i'll have to re-check everything tomorrow. I should have taken a sick day. Oh well!

I think i'm starting to get sick; this morning I woke up feeling tired and cranky and with a sore throat again. Yuck!

Yesterday: coffee, water, crackers with sausage, chicken and pasta with onion, spinach and carrots, toast with pb.

I took Dog for a walk yesterday instead of trying to fix the treadmill as I had an evening meeting and wouldn't have had time for a running workout. The walk was nice and Dog was very happy to be outside, so it was worth the change of plan =) It was so humid that I was sweating in my light jacket and long pants.

I didn't get much sleep last night, due to being swept up in a Make it or Break it episode =0 and also because of a certain mosquito buzzing around in my bedroom. I eventually swatted it, which scared Dog, who I had to calm down afterwards. My life. Anyways, this morning there was no way I was getting up to run after only five hours of sleep. No way. And right now all I want to do is sleep and stock up on C vitamins and cold medicine. I have another meeting tonight that i'm not looking forward to, then tomorrow night a retirement supper to attend, and Friday is leg waxing with a friend. Blah. I hope I don't get any more sick than I already am or the rest of this week is going to suck.

The good news is that I have a lovely lunch of leftovers to look forward to. Yum!

Hey! Got my 1.5 mile walk out of the way this morning and now on to the rest of the workday! (I'm trying to sound a lot more excited about that than I really am, LOL).

So yesterday I ate cheese and crackers for lunch, dried mango and a cupcake for snacks, and chili with perogies for dinner (from Mom). And then BAM, some bread went into the toaster. I gotta stop doing that!!! Still, the day was pretty good calorie-wise, so i'm not going to beat myself up (too much).

My throat was really hurting last night, so I popped a couple throat lozenges and one this morning. I seem to be feeling slightly better, so we'll see how the day goes.

No plans again for tonight - looks like it might rain today/tonight so I won't be getting into the garden or flowerbeds for a little while. Too bad; my plants are starting to look a little frayed at the edges. I need to weed and plant the garden. And vacuum (inside the house LOL). But I can't seem to find the energy. Okay, get it together legcramps, it's just a little slump. Probably brought on by too many late night parties. I'll get back there.

Today I will try to get the treadmill working again. If I manage to fix it, i'll do a one mile run. Also? I think this weekend i'll take it easy on the partying oh crap there's a team bbq on Saturday night. I'm expected to be there, so I will drink lots of water through the night and try my best to avoid the drama because the drama will definitely be showing up.

Small towns. Love it.

I was going to get up early on Saturday and do a three mile run, but when it came time to wake up, I was not having any of it! Oops. I guess I needed some sleep, and I think I know why since this morning I woke up with a sore throat and some coughing fits.

Instead of running, I helped out in the morning with setting up for a fundraiser that evening. It was actually a really good workout - hauling boxes and setting up tables and chairs. I did a few little errands during the rest of the day and managed to get my garden tilled finally, then had a birthday dinner to attend. I had toast with pb and two eggs for breakfast, but I can't honestly remember what I had for lunch. Maybe the same thing. For dinner I had mahi mahi with scampi sauce - it was so tasty! And a baked potato.

The fundraiser was just a very long night. Not many people showed up as there were so many other events happening. I hope we can at least break even - live and learn! After the fundraiser a group of girls enjoyed a few drinks and chatted into the early hours of the morning. It would have been fine had one of the girls not decided to start teasing me about 'A'. I think she is interested in him and was just wanting to be mean to me - also, she was texting him all night and seemed angry when he kept asking about me. After a while it started to bother me - I don't need the drama nor do I need to act like a schoolgirl, but I couldn't help feeling frustrated with her. I'm going to drop it and be the bigger person though. If she's so interested that she feels the need to berate me in front of my friends, she can have it! Right?

Breakfast on Sunday was an egg sandwich and some orange juice and hashbrowns. Lunch was a lot of carbs - rice, potato skins and pancakes! Dinner was cheese and crackers ;) I spent Sunday not doing much because I was so tired. And true to form, I did not want to get up this morning for my run. Now i've missed two runs and i'm hoping that won't affect my cardio too much, but I know it will.

Dog is headed for a hair cut today; other than that I don't really want to do anything. I think I will read a bit and head to bed early - 1.5 mile walk in the morning!

Have a great day!

Oh brother - school girl behavior by other woman, for sure. Your instincts are probably right - she's interested in him OR she just can't stand anyone else having the possibility of a relationship.....best to ignore. "A" probably thinks she's odd, too.
