Feeling a bit better....

I got home yesterday and fiancé's plan was to have me eat some chicken soup, then get into my pjs and nap until our TV appointment with Heroes...

That. was. so. goooooood.

We had a long nap then watched a bit of tv and then went to sleep again for a nice long comfy night. This morning I still feel like I have a cold, but I don't feel 'tired' at all... I'm ready to fight that virus!!! Argh!!!

I've officially signed up for Soccer again - playing in a Coed team, at the BMO field (official Toronto FC playing field...) In the winter, they put a 'bubble' on top of the field, and they have recreational leagues who play all winter... I believe it's the same this year - we play on Wednesday nights starting November 12th and the games start between 9 and 11pm, which makes for very interesting Thursday mornings... ouch... but boy is it fun to play on that field!! I just love it! And it's an easy 6 points of activity per game...

The team has asked my fiancé to coach this season, as he won't be able to play again until May 2009. He goes for knee surgery this Friday - broke a ligament on the inside of the knee... I know that this will be tough for him, to come to the games and just watch... he misses playing so much... poor thing...

Anyways... I lost where I was going with this... hmmm... nope can't remember! oh well... I'll blog again when I remember!

Happy Tuesday! :)

Didn't share that in english...

One thing that should motivate me a lot to get to my goal weight is the fact that I'm getting married next year, and I would like to look my best/be my healthiest by then...

We're getting married in New York City, just the two of us - no family, no friends, just the two of us... It'll be in the spring or the fall, depending on my work schedule... I hate to have to schedule my life around work like that, but for now, that's what I do and there's not much I can do about it... oh well...

So yes - a wedding! Yay!

I've been starting my week rather badly - not enough to 'do damage' but I was headed in the same direction as for the last few weeks... which have not been good - well 2 days in, I clicked, and I am happy to say that I have been OP for 2 days, tracking everything and eating within my points... Now if I can get back to exercising... I have been having the hardest time waking up in the morning - I have a bit of flexibility as to when I come in to work, but I usually try to go in early so that I can leave early - well this week I have been going into work later than ever! I have to turn that around... I'm confident that once the stress of 'the new job' goes away, everything will go back to normal...

I have been having issues with my birth control pill as well, I recently switched pills and it's just not working... I can't wait to have that sorted out too!! Unfortunately I think that the solution will be to just stop using the pill, ugh... oh well!! :)

ok I'm going to go watch The Office now!! Good night! :)

Weigh In #5

156.0 lbs
that's a 1lb gain for this week.

It caught up to me... But I'm ok with that - it's best if it happens, to show me that I'm doing something wrong... Now I want to reverse that, so I'm going to be OP all week. oh yes! I don't think I can blog about it right now - no time unfortunately- but I thought I would at least put it out there - that's right, I've been bad - kick my butt!
But I'll have good numbers next week, because I'm starting this week with the right attitude!

I'll try to post again this week, I have a few ideas...

Have a fun week!

Weigh In #4 + I won!!!

155.0 lbs
That's a 0.2 lb loss for this week...

I won on Mel's template contest!! :) Woo hoo!!! That's so cool! Thank you so much Mel and Lindsay! :) I have started to think of what I will do and which blog I will apply the new template to... my english blog, my french blog? I don't know yet... will keep you posted ;)

I started the new job, and it's going ok... Things are slowly starting to feel normal again... It's always tough to be in a new place with new people, so that's normal... We're in a temporary location until we move into our new building end of month... I can't wait for that... This office is ok but it's not 'private' enough for my liking... :) Everybody who passes by can see what I am doing because my monitors are facing the door of the office... There's a big window into my office right beside the door, so even if I closed it, it wouldn't help :)

A bit stressed because I'm using a program I haven't used in 3 years... (Avid Media Composer) but it's slowly coming back to me... I haven't 'really' started working on anything yet because there was no material available, but this afternoon, or tomorrow, I will get to use it and see how much I need to 're-teach' myself :)

I can't wait until I finally get to read all your blogs again - well, read them more regularly... And I want to blog more too... I know I said that already... :) It's coming soon, I can feel it! There is light at the end of this tunnel!!! Phew! :)

Hope everybody is having a fun time!! :)

Mel's Contest

such a great giveaway idea!!! Thank you Mel!!

Weigh In #3

155.2 lbs
That's a 0.6 lb loss for this week.

That's not a lot, especially considering I was 153.4 yesterday morning... Yes, you can kick my butt - I ate too much yesterday... I was so good all week and then - I went to the bulk barn, and bought some chocolate.... hmmmm.... I had some at 9pm, with a glass of Coke... hmmmm....

I need to get my Sunday nights under control because I really mess up with my week's effort just with one evening... I don't know why the Sunday night specifically - maybe it's just the depressing thought that I have to work the next day... but that's just a poor excuse... Also, I tend to sleep later in the morning on weekends, so on Monday, weigh in day, I have to break that... somehow I feel like this might make a difference on the scale - I read that somewhere, but I don't know if it's true... But the truth is, it's consistant: that's the way I weigh myself every Monday... so that shouldn't make a difference... I think it's really just a matter of putting more effort into it...

I have 2 weeks left of 'hell at work' and then I'll be able to have a more 'regular' schedule... I hate working late one night, working early one other morning... it just messes up with my metabolism... and it makes me grumpy... :) I hope the new job will be easier than my current job... it's only a one year contract this time...

Oh! I have to say though - I have accomplished something good this week - I have completed week 2 of the c25k program. Yup, for 3 days this week! Now on to week 3 on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

anyways... I ramble, I ramble... I should keep it short and blog again during the week... and do the same on my French blog, no worries :) Maybe I'll start doing that in a couple of weeks...

I think I was supposed to write about a small goal. hmmm... I think I want to seriously add strength training in my exercise routine. I have been saying that for a while, no I just want to do it. That would be perfect - 3 days of cardio, 2 days of strength training, 1 day off... Yup, that's my next small goal!

Have a good week!!!

EDIT*** here's one other small goal: I would really like to read more blogs from other participants and comment. I haven't had time to do so recently, and might not get to it until 2 weeks from now, but I'm going to try... You guys have been so nice to comment here!! Thank you!
