Offical furmama to one handicat.

     Henrey broke his leg in 2 spots and dislocated his hip. Today he is a drugged up fat cat. Tomorrow, he'll be a drugged up fat cat minus one hind leg. Awful, awful. I feel horrible. I hope he heals quick and I am glad that he is alive but I'd hate to lose my leg, I can't imagine how he feels. The baby didn't nap today so I don't think I'll be able to get my C25K in but there's always tomorrow and Sunday. I ate only soup for the whole day so I'm under my calories...

      I just hope Henrey doesn't hate us forever. Diet and exercise is the furthest thing on my mind right now. My poor boy.

Today is a sad day.

     Adrian woke up at 8:30am to go to work, as usual. I was still usual. Then he came in and told me Henrey had broken his legs and he had to take him to the vet. He took him to the vet and Henrey is sedated and it's only one broken leg. We're waiting to hear back about his X-rays and our...options.

Give Yourself The Best Gift Challenge Update #1

Action points ( Short versions)

  • I will eat out less. - So far, so good. I ate out once, pizza. It was within my calories though and I did eat out... 6 times less... this week. Consider this a great start. I've stayed within my calories every day so that's good too. not always great choices but it's a work in progress.
  • I will set a new goal.- My goal for September was to lose 6LBs. I'm unsure if I'll make it, but I've lost 5 already so  there is still hope!
  • I will workout. I will commit to 3 designated work outs a week.- WIN! Mega win! I have been working out 3 times a week and even then sometimes twice a day. I've finished my first week of the C25K, and have done some walking & joggings on top.
  • I will be more (pro)active.  - Definitely doing much better from the start with this one. Much better then I thought, My house is unpacked. Laundry is done ( which I NEVER do) and generally in life things are much more taken care of.
  • I will plan my meals in advance. - I have been doing it the night before ( which *I* do consider in advance.) I don't like to plan too far ahead because I never know what I will want to eat 3 days ahead of time. It's nice to wake up in the morning and not have to wonder what I should eat that day. I like having it there and I can tweak it as the day progresses.
  • I will try something new once a week. - Peaches. No thank you. Next week: Banana Bread.
  • I will be nicer to my husband. -I think I pass this one by default. he's been working late and he's gone when I wake up... and he's out of town for the weekend. 
Start weight - 165lbs
Current weight - 165lbs.

Week 1 down.... 8 more to go?

     So today I finished Week 1 of the C25K! It's the longest I've stuck with any program lol.  Also means that I am following through my with action point of working out 3 days a week. This treadmill is the best investment! I've worked out on it more times in the last week then I have gone to the gym in like the last 6 months, so it's practically paid for itself! It's so convenient and I love it. I feel... re-inspired.

     The news was WRONG. It's so not nice this weekend so I'm unsure if I'll be able to go for a walk through the river valley this weekend. I'll definitely go for a walk around the new hood today. Hopefully find somewhere more exciting to go then just walking in circles this time. Other then that life is good.

     I wanted to start making things like perogies to freeze but as MY luck would have it our freezer broke the day we moved in. The repair dude came today and said it would probably be cheaper to  buy a new freezer then to repair it. Either way it's fine we still have the freezer in our fridge. In my beautiful new kitchen omg I love it so much. It's definitely become the most used room in our home.

    Not a great photo, but you get the idea.

     My weight has been generally around 165/166 for the last little while and I know I haven't been giving it my all. I feel like I started so strong and started getting the results and then life happened and I put it on the back burner. I still am logging my cals, and now working out which I wasn't really doing before. I just need to make it a priority again. It's good. I feel good. I won't beat myself up about it... I can only carry on from where I am now.

Uh Oh

     So I did use my new treadmill last night, as well as went for a walk so that was good. I'm leaving it today though, I just have to much to do it's overwhelming. I'm hoping I get a shower before my mother comes over. I'm not looking forward to it, I want to cancel. I can't though. If I recall correctly this will be the first time I've seen her since Easter? Yup, she mos def hasn't seen Nina since she turned one. She lives 10 minutes away from me.  Anyways, my post isn't about that. I've planned my calories and everything looks good and now I'm cleaning and STILL unpacking and trying to get everything into it's place. It really is never-ending isn't it. This weekend will be good for food, but bad for unpacking and cleaning and working out since Adriano will be out of town and it will just be me and the baby. We will be able to get out for some walks though since it's going to be really nice. On my walk yesterday I ended up walking in circles for 45 minutes cause all the roads kept saying no exit so I had no where to go! I know I live quite close to the river valley, I'll have to make a point to go for a walk there this weekend!!

This just in: Peaches r nasty.

     DO NOT LIKE. Not raw ones anyways. Nina seems to like them though, she loves any fruit. I have a bunch of them so I'll see if I can make some kind of peachy dessert or dinner this week.  Also going to try and make banana bread. Thats TWO new things. Look @ me go. Maybe I should wait on the bread so I can use it as next months goal. (kidding!)

     I bought a treadmill today, so I have no excuse not to stick to my action point of working out three days a week even though my gym is SO FAR now. Well I better go set up my treadmill so I can get on it.

     Is coming to an end, I'm all moved and happy in our new house. As per my challenge, I have to try one new thing this month and it is going to be peaches. I probably should have had a peach sometime in my life, but I haven't that I can remember. I mean like a raw,natural, peach. I do love me some peach juice so I hope it's not gross. The fuzz freaks me out a little. I'm doing really well already (not just today but for the last few weeks) of being proactive and staying on top of things that need to be done instead of letting everything pile up. I find now I'm actually looking for things that need to be done. I think I gained a pound but I'm not killing myself about it. No guilt this time so I think I'm starting to get over it. Stocked up today on lots of good foods and looking forward to the weeks to come :)

It starts now.

     By the end of this holiday season, I want to feel confident and happy. I don't want to have any regrets. This holiday season I want to give myself the gift of health, and weight loss, and to have the feeling of accomplishment. 

Action points

  • I will eat out less. I will eat clean. I will make better choices when I do eat out. I will stay within my calories, no exceptions.
  • I will set a new goal, either a scale goal, or an NSV for every month.
  • I will workout. I won't depend on diet alone for weight loss. I will work out 3 days a week, whether it's 30 minutes, or 2 hours. I will commit to 3 designated work outs a week.
  • I will be more (pro)active. I will do things. I will not procrastinate, I will do what needs to be done, as it needs doing or before.
  • I will plan my meals in advance.
  • I will try something new once a week. Food, recipe, activity, whatever.
  • I will be nicer to my husband.
So far, today, so good. :)

     Not a good week. Not a good week AT ALL! Finally moved though so that is ahma-zing. So happy. We also bought a new car so double happy! I'm getting a new treadmill tomorrow! TRIPLE HAPPY! I had tomato soup for lunch. Which is probably healthy considering all the other stuff I ate this week.

    Luckily, I start a new challenge tomorrow and I am super excited about the Give Yourself The Best Gift Challenge. I'll have to go back and find my post with my action points. It's a little hard now cause I'm posting with 1 bar of stolen internet. Here's hoping this post goes through right?! I'll do a proper update later tonight when I have some spare time.

Bad News Bears

     So we didn't get the car cause Adrians only here on a work permit. It's so annoying. He's been here since 2004, we've been married for over 4 years. I don't think he's going anywhere and even if he did he certainly can't take the car back to Africa with him so WTH guys! We will survive though, we just have to come up with another plan of action... which is just to buy the damn car with cash, and finding another way to build our credit.

     Enough of that bad news though. I have lost 2Lbs since my last weigh-in two weeks ago. While it's OKAY, I know I'm still continuing to make bad food choices regardless of staying in my calorie range. I have to buckle down and stop eating out!! It's difficult though with the craziness around here lately. If I can do it now, I can do it any time. Dooooooooooo it.

     So - interesting story. Two nights ago some guy knocked on the door and Adrian didn't answer but he wouldn't stop knocking so Adrians all WTF GUY?! and he's like is Shawn here and adrian said no and the guy was like r u sure?! Yeah... pretty sure. What the helllll... then last night some girl comes to the door and told us "theres some one out here trying to stab people, he tried stabbing my boyfriend and I don't want him to try to stab anybody else" Uhhh... thanks for the heads up?! I think? I duno... called the cops. Seriously cannot wait to move.

Oh Em Geee

     Having a fantastic week. As fantastic as a week can be by Wednesday anyways. Things are just crazy around here. I've been staying in my calories, but not making great choices. Who am I kidding? I'm not even making good choices. I'm not gaining, not losing as fast as I could be, not working out as much as I should be. I'm glad that challenge starts soon and I'm glad to move soon and things will just calm down!! We also spent yesterday car shopping. Since my husbando is an immigrant, we might not get approved for financing. That's not all true, it's not because he's an immigrant it's because he's not a landed immigrant, but thats a long rant for another day. Hopefully a new car today, moving on the 15th, then my sisters coming to visit and Adrians going out of town. It's really easy to get sidetracked and overwhelmed. I just have to keep my eye on the prize.

     I'm going shopping today, and since my gym is in the mall I have 0 excuse not to go. Adrians off at 3:30 so I can't even use the daycare is closed till 5 excuse. Since the mall is like 10 city blocks long maybe walking around it will burn a few extra calories too. I'm going to need it... I just need to pull through these next few days and I'll be okay. I haven't messed up yet, and i just need to keep my eye on the skinny prize.

The mystery of the vanishing shoes

     has been solved! They were hiding under a stack of unbuilt boxes in my dining room, a.k.a, packing central.

Saturday, September 3, 2011

I'm walkin on SUNSHIIINEE O YA.

     I'm in suuuuuuuuuuuuch a good mood today. Which is fantastic cause when I left my house this morning I was anxious, stressed out, pissed off, tired, and overwhelmed and all i wanted to do was find my effing shoes. SRSLY, WHO LOSES SHOES?! Me, apparently. They were showing our unit today so I didn't want to stick around for that so Nina and I had to leave from 1-4pm. We went mall walking/shopping so I must have burned a ton of calories. Man is that mall big! I hate hate haaaaaaaate going to the mall on Saturdays but we had fun. I got myself a perfect cup from DAVIDsTEA and some new teas I haven't tried before. Nina got a cat shirt and some baby fuggs.

     We ate out for lunch I had a chicken quesadilla from Zellers restaurant.  I shared with Nina. Our waitress was a cow and I ended up complaining to the manager after I had sat there for 25 minutes and got a shit ton of attitude when I asked for my leftovers to go. Man, some people are just so rude. Really. You work at zellers so cool your jets and let me and my bb enjoy our meal. I ordered a new cell phone since mine broke, they don't make it in Fushia any more so I had to get graphite... OH! and I bought new dishes, and pillows. I feel better now though. 100%. Happy happy asshole.

     I have been wondering all day about the people who viewed our place. what they thought of our stuff. It's so weird to have to let people into your house when you're not here. I'm glad they didn't let the cats out of the basement though. nice guys. Okay then, I'm off to enjoy some tea tea tea tea teaaaaaaa. Lime Gelatoo.
