-I might be in the hardest position there is in a blended family situation, but I am an awesome step-mom. If I do say so myself.
-Christmas was weird this year. I didn't do a single Newfoundland hard-wired tradition of mine. It made me miserable. It made me miss home. I plan to correct that next Christmas and incorporate my lifelong traditions. Come hell, or high water.
-My jeans became too tight over the holidays. They are now starting to fit a little looser again. Thank Christ for that, because we aren't allowed to wear yoga pants to work. Something about being a professional in a work environment. Whatever.
-I am focusing on eating real food as often as possible. Making my own meals, planning ahead, being prepared, stocking up. I have even made deelish things like this, and this! and these!
-99% of the time, I drink water. On the rocks.
-I am trying to give up aspartame altogether. Sweet Jesus! That shit is EVERYWHERE!
-Despite having gained weight, and sometimes feeling like a failure, or that I am starting all over from the beginning, I don't hate myself. This alone, is major progress people! Plus, I have not, and never will, go back to looking like this --->
-That said, I do have to get back to the gym, and regular training and exercise. I just feel better, and stronger, and happier when I am moving.
-I just scored some pretty decent seats to see P!NK in Montreal on March 12th with two of my besties. So excited I could almost get sick!
-I listen to music all day at work. All. Day. Life is just better with background noise.
-I am taking a break from calorie counting. I could feel myself slipping into a self induced crazy head space of numbers, and account balances. It wasn't pretty.
-Have you tried coconut oil yet? SO! good! Make old school popcorn, or spread it on toast. You can even rub it on your bodacious bod...although I haven't tried this myself. Yet. This jar is from Costco, and is the best price around!
-I want to go to the Ellen Show. I want to sit in her red chair, and talk with her, and laugh with her, and get a hug and a picture. I just have to start doing someone worthy of her attention to get there.
-Lame or not, I love doing my nails, and I love the accent nail trend.
And that about sums up my life, and the random thoughts that are clean and kind enough for me to post here.
I hope your day is awesome!
