Day 3 – Your Favourite Quote

Hey all!  I am all caught up!  🙂  Boom Baby!

My favourite quote, this is a tough one, I love quotes, and have a few favourites, but the one the sticks out the most for me would be:

If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything. Mark Twain
I am all about honesty, that is the one thing that I have instilled in my children, honesty is the best policy.

Another one that I love is from Vince Lombardi, he has some great quotes, but this is one of my favourites:

It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up. Vince Lombardi

And then there’s Ellen, who doesn’t love Ellen!  🙂

Find out who you are and be that person. That’s what your soul was put on this Earth to be. Find that truth, live that truth and everything else will come. Ellen DeGeneres

Truthfully, I am still looking for this a little, I am mostly there, but I feel like I’m still searching for me.

Ok, that’s it, I can go on for days with quotes that I love.

See you tomorrow!

Well, I Did It…And I Didn’t Do It…

Hi Folks,

I completed the 30 day blog challenge and only messed up a little towards the end, I do hope that you enjoyed, that was a lot of sharing.  Yay!

So my life these days, well, just ok.  I fell off track with food last Thursday at a B2B Expo (Trade Show) in Oakville, they had free booze and people wandering around with food, so I helped myself, only 2 small beers over the course of a 7 hour period, and lots of hors d’ouvres.  Then there was Friday night, that was one of my best friends birthday’s it was dinner out with drinks, I had  good meal, I had the salmon and didn’t eat the potatoes, and I drank a lot, then we came back to the house, and continued to drink some more.

Then the rest of the weekend was filled with bad food, bacon and eggs, a bag of cheese popcorn, mint chocolate girl guide cookies,  candy bars from Halloween that I hadn’t cheated on before, you name it I had it…Pizza, Mr. Sub, and Tim Horton’s in one weekend…Yup…I suck.

The rest of my week hasn’t been great, I haven’t weighed myself because the last time I did I was up 2 pounds, so only a 9 pound loss, and I am sure I’m up even more now.  It’s also that time of the month for me, so that’s not going to help.

When I fall off the wagon, I fall hard.  It has always been that way, even though I was doing so well, and without, processed food, any grains and sugar, I didn’t crave anything, but it is so hard to get back to that again.

This weekend won’t help either, it is our annual tree decorating weekend and cookie swap.  So you guessed it, there will be cookies, and then us ladies all get together and do more drinking and eating while we catch up.  It is a good night, but this will lead to another week of me being off the rails, and by now, you know me, go big or go home, when I fall, I fall HARD.

Part of me says fuck it…we can start again in January, but the flip side of me says, ok, so you are messing up, it is baby steps and you gotta do this one day at a time, and today is a good day to start again.  I have continued going to the gym, and I’m hoping that is helping, and I really praying that I am burning more calories than I’m eating, however, that would mean that I would have to burn 5 zillion calories in a one hour period at the gym.   Hey, maybe it’s possible..LOL

So, let’s end this on a positive note, so I fucked up.  I got to enjoy crap that I haven’t had for 6-8 weeks, and I have made progress by continuing to go to the gym.  I do feel good, and I can get back to this.  I will get back to this, and I am going to get back to this.  Why does it have to be so fucking hard.

 

Blog Challenge – Day 29

What Do You Think People Misunderstand Most About You?

This is another tough one, I may have to go with my age, and my kids, when I tell people I have a daughter who is almost 23, I surprise a lot of people.  I had her when I was really young, but I’d like to think that I still made a really good mom.  I tried my best, and well, she’s nothing like me – except for her looks, voice and sense of humour, and she finished university and is now working, so I don’t think I did too badly.

Blog Challenge – Day 28

What is Your Love Language?

What is a love language?  Ok, so I did an online test, this is coming from someone who hasn’t even dated in over a year, let alone been in a relationship; apparently my love language is physical touch.  Maybe I’m just craving some physical touch.  Typically, I’m not much for public displays of affection, however, I thought I would be more selfish right now, because I have this issue with trusting people and all, and most of the time in my mind, I’m thinking “don’t touch me”.

But there you have it.  Physical Touch.

Blog Challenge – Day 27

What is Your Favourite Part of Your Body and Why?

Ok, I’m going to have to go with my hair, if that counts as part of my body.  I love my hair, I love long hair, and, knock on wood, I haven’t had to dye my hair yet.  I still have my natural colour, I know it won’t last that much longer, but I’m happy I don’t have that extra added cost each month to keep up with covering grey.

If I actually have to pick a part of my body, then my next favourite body part would be my eyes, I like my eyes, their brown, and Asian, I have my dad’s eyes, and I get compliments – well, I used to get compliments about my eyes.
