out of the loop

I have had a hell of a couple of weeks. The girls have been testing my every nerve and patience. Rory has decided she doesn't sleep at night anymore, and then working and having a husband who has been on the road way to much lately. Food has been crap plain and simple. Exercise....NONE existence. It sucks. I am back soon I swear. I didn' t even weigh in this week. Bad bad bad I know. I am kickin gmy own no worries it has been taken care of.

So sick of being sick

So yesterday we didn't even leave the house. Sydney sat on the couch all day curled up in a blanket, felt so bad for her. And poor Rory just wandered around the house, DH worked on our basement. It was a LONG day. To top it off, when I went to bed last night, 10pm on a Sat...wild women I am. I had a sinus headache, woke up at 3 am just throbbing. Got up took something for the pain. Got up this morning and it is in full force, runny nose but stuffy, sinus pain. LOVE IT' I have decided I hate daycares. If this is what daycares are going to do to our family I will leave my job....well I can't but I would if I could. Man it is horrible. I guess we just need our immune systems to build up...FAST.

So when we got up this morning I said, we have to get out of the house. So we ventured out to the mall, I had taken pants to get shortened(love being short...petit size is even to long) and had to get groceries. THen DH surprised me with a Chapters gift card, he had gotten from his airmiles or something so we hit them up to. I got the second book in the Twilight series, first one wasn't bad, not as amazing as I thought it would be. NOt juicy enough I guess :P

Came home had lunch then we all went down for a nap, 2 hours, it was awesome. I think DH thought a "nap" was code for something else but I wanted sleep. Normally at nap time is when I do the shred dvd and do some housework. NOt today.

I just want it to be spring time, maybe in the spring we all won't feel so crappy.

Food wise wasn't horrible besides my earlier post on KFC. We had meatballs, steamed brocoli, rice. Today it was kind of a hit and miss, didn't feel much like eating, had an omlet for breakie and then lunch was a few kashi crackers and a banana. Supper still haven't decided yet and it is almost 9. Probably toast, just because it hurts to swallow now.

Well enough of my complaining, time for me to get off my ass and do something.

Later Days!

Bad Bad Bad.....

I broke today, I had the worst thing you can ever eat in general.  KFC. I feel so guilty, I just couldn't resist.  I am an emotional eater, and this has been a rough week, 2 sick kids, still not feeling excellent myself and DH was in TO.  I was up at 5am each morning on the road to drop the kids off by 6:30.  Each night this week the girls were rough, they were crying all the time because they just didn't feel good.  I am exhausted.  DH came home from TO tonight and on the way home from the airport he brought home the dreadful KFC.  It wasn't even that good.  I am feeling so bad about it.  I have learnt my more crap.  I bet the scale will reflect bad for me on Monday.

Have some good news and some bad news

Ok first the good news, I am feeling 100% better.  I had to even make a trip to the emerge because I had been sick for so long and not keep anything down, a bit dehydrated wasn't a fun weekend.  But it did result in a great weigh in...that is part of the bad part.  I know it wasn' t a great wi because I put lots of effort into it.  Even though the week leading up to Thurs I had been doing great.  But the illness took over in my weight loss journey.  Want to know what I lost?






Crazy.  Now the trick is to keep it off.  Meals are planned for the week and some exercise planned as well.  So it better not creep back up on me. 


This is short and sweet, DH is heading to TO tomorrow so I have to have lots of stuff done since I will be on my own for the rest of the week.  Back packs to pack, lunches to never ends, and my kids don't even go to school yet.


Later days!

sick sick sick

Well first off I survived my mother in law, she wasn't horrible at all this time, it was almost like she was afraid to do anything in our house.  She didn't even put her dishes in the dishwasher because she said she wasn't sure how we loaded it.  So we were able to keep to our planned food for the week EXCEPT, MCD'S on Thurs night.  SIL brought over a Big Mac for me for the rest of the family.  I ate it but you know what it really wasn't that good.  But I got pay back.

Thurs night just after supper I started to feel horrible the belly was turning, I was FROZEN, couldn't get warm.  I went to bed when the kids did.  I went to bed with a quilt, heavy blanket and 2 crochet blankets, still not warm, ached all over.  Then got up Friday went to work, still had the belly rumbling but felt a bit better...made it to noon.  Had to go home.  If not I was going to throw up all over my desk, good thing I came home when I did.  I have lived with my head in the garbage can every hour or so since yesterday at noon. 

I was suppose to head to Saint John today for a meeting but I had to cancel.  Felt bad.  Got up a little while ago thinking I haven' t been sick in a few hours.  Sure enough not even 5 mins later it was back.  So I am assuming my WI on Monday should be amazing but not for a good reason.

Well back to bed, again.  My poor husband has been trying to finish our basement and with me being sick has slowed down the process.  God love him.


Later days.

Good news but can be bad as well

My MIL is coming to town as a suprise for everyone. She is coming in tonight, DH told me yesterday. Let me tell you I wasn't impressed. Our house is a disaster. All week after work I felt like doing nothing, just getting back in the work groove and stuff drained me. And she is a neat freak. So last night I had a little meltdown. He wasn't impressed with my reaction and doesn't seem to understand why I wasn't happy but he got over it.

The bad news is she is staying with us...and she will be cooking. So I won't have control at all. She is the type that takes over the kitchen when she comes. I think Angie had the same sort of deal awhile back. But we will see how it goes. I am going to plan our meals for the week like always and see if she follows them . Should be interesting.

Off to do some running around with the little ladies. Time for new slips (aka slippers) for my oldest, and she has informed me she needs a housecoat too....and she is only 2. You would think she was 90.

Have a great day everyone, and we will see what the scale shows in 2 days :).

Later days!

Back in the groove

Back in the groove and LOVING IT!!

Food today:

Breakfast: same as yesterday, kashi granola in liberte mocha fat free yogurt
Snack: Banana
Lunch Veggi soup and 10 Kashi cracker ranch ones I think they were
Snack 100cal pack of craisins
Supper: DH made supper in a hurry tonight not the greatest but not bad, homeade chicken fingers with dry bread crumbs, egg wash and parmesan cheese. With Stove top of all things. I think it is funny when he has to cook.

He will be cooking most nights for the next month until both girls are going to the same daycare. Right now our oldest goes to daycare here in Riverview, but our youngest can't go until she is 14 months. So I drive her to my parents in Magnetic Hill. I work 2 mins from our house in Riverview. So it is a bit of a drive each morning and after work. So he is home first and has to cook. But tonight I forgot to leave him the recipe which looked really good but oh well maybe next time.

Hope all the team Angie members are having an awesome week.

Later days....(from the cartoon Weekenders..can you tell I have a 2 year old) :)

Last Hurrah

So this blog is going to be dedicated to the BLBE2. So Monday is my wi and I am a bit scared. Why? Well Christmas wasn't kind to me...well I wasn't kind to me. And then tonight DH and I had a date. I had gotten a babysitter lined up to go to a movie, but then he didn't really want to see anything playing so we did some running around sans kids. Which first off was weird. Secondly not good. DH said why don't we go for desert, one last time for awhile. He never wants to go for desert. So I jumped at the chance and went for my fav Maple Blondie at Boston Pizza.......BUT they took it off the menu :( so I went for the chocolate eruption. Not what I really wanted but good....but oh so bad.

So tomorrow is back on the band wagon. Off to get groceries, load up on the veggies and good stuff. Going back to work on Weds after being off for 14 months on mat leave. Love having a routine again but going to miss my babies :( .

I will post a new before pic of myself just as soon as I find my reader for memory card for my laptop....daughter was playing with it and now I can't find it. And of course DH packed away the cord to the camera. Soon I promise.
