Not a Good Day Today

Today just isn't a good day. I feel anxious, but can't figure out why, just a general uneasiness - I HATE that feeling. All the anxiety just sucks the energy right out of me.

I have way to much on the go right now. Three weddings in 2 weeks! How does someone cope with that?! I'm in all 3! And how in the world do you know what to buy your best friend for a wedding present?! This just sucks.

I feel like I've been spending loads of money and seeing nothing of it. Just one more depressing thing to think about...

I need a vacation. A real vacation, with nothing else to think about but nothing.

BBQ Rules - Too Funny (Yet True)!

We are about to enter the summer and BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity, as it’s the only type of cooking a ‘real’ man will do, probably because there is an element of danger involved.

When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:


(1) The woman buys the food.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.

(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.

Here comes the important part:


More routine….

(5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
(6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.

Important again:


More routine….

(8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
(9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dis hes.

And most important of all:

(10) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
(11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed “her night off.” And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there’s just no pleasing some women….

I Have My Very Own Meeting!!!


Weight Watchers offered me my very own meeting in Fredericton! And I took it! I'm now the Tuesday night leader (Fredericton, 5.15pm soon to be 5.45pm, for anyone who wants to drop by!).

I'm so excited and so nervous! I can't believe I have my own meeting to do what I want with it!

I'm Officially a Weight Watchers Meeting Leader!


I can now officially be declared a WW Leader! I never thought it was even possible! I'm so excited to start! Training was fantastic, and I got to meet some really nice ladies there. My mind is racing trying to come up with cool ideas - if you have any great motivators, let me know girls!

Just finished making a core chili for the week. I even put some cocoa in this time, it makes it a really nice brown colour - will let you know how I feel about it once I try it.

Finally! Training Tonight!

The day has finally arrived! I'm getting trained to be a WW Leader tonight and tomorrow! My goal will finally be realized! I never thought in a million years that I'd ever get here. I'm so eager to get the materials to look at! EEEEEKKKK!

On another note, one of the younger WW Leaders here in Fredericton is moving. :-( She's one of my favourites - just a complete sweetie! She's moving to Vancouver, to be closer to her family. I told her about all of the great girls out there and she was pretty excited about it - she's going to be a leader out there too.

Me and PM...

Had to post the picture of us from Canada Day.

It was such a delight to meet you Leanne! I hope we get to have a few more evenings together someday!

Lions and Tigers and Anniversaries - Oh My!

I have a couple of anniversaries on the go today (and tomorrow). Today marks two years that Stephen and I have been together.

Tomorrow will mark two years that I have been at my WW goal weight. It's hard to believe it's already been that long...

Here's to a couple more years!

Such a Good Holiday Weekend!

Not that I did anything exciting, but still...

Went to Maine on Saturday with my folks and picked up all kinds of interesting American food finds: Heluva Good Dip (really frickin' good too), WW yogurt (I have yet to try it), mystery doritos, diet mountain dew, instant chocolate milk powder (in individual packets), FF cheese, and all kinds of other weird and wonderful items. Everytime I visit, it makes me realize that Americans have every opportunity to either become extremely obese, or extremely fit and healthy, they just have to choose, because they have everything they need at their fingertips to accomplish either.

Had my first Core WI yesterday and was down 0.4 lbs. I was totally happy with that, considering that I haven't been hungry once since switching. I think I'll keep core for myself forever! And I will love her, and squeeze her, and...

As for my last event of the weekend (so far) - I finally got my hands on a Wii Fit! I conned the girl at our local walmart into calling me when they got some in, and she did! I picked up the last 2 in the shipment, one for us, and one for my friend Scott, who's been looking for one for his parents. It totally rocks and I love it!

I'm meeting PM tonight downtown at the fireworks! I'm so freakin' excited to finally get to meet her! I can't believe I finally get to meet one of the girls from the boards in person! And one of the sweetest ones too!

What a great weekend!
