Randomness of May 26

Recommended Posts

The weather: So we had beautiful weather on Saturday! Must have been at least 23 (celsius that is!) I felt bad because Mat was nightshift so he didn't get to do much other than sleep & go to work. Everyone seemed busy (with kids, broken toes & work!) so I spent most of the afternoon at my friends garden centre. I love being around all the plants & stuff! I worked there last summer, but definately do not want to be pulling that kind of work again! (12+ hour days working outside or in the hot greenhouse) By evening it turned to rain. Cue nasty headache. Rained all day Sunday - again didn't get to do much! So this morning I wake up to what sounds like a nasty wind storm... actually turns out to be snow. FRIGGIN BLOODY SNOW!!!!!!!! Only in Timmins, ON can it snow at the end of May... grrrrrrrr! I even had to wipe my back windshield before driving anywhere. I was tempted to take a pic, but was also way too depressed! lol Snow snow go away... DON'T come again another day!!!

 

Laptop: So we bought a new laptop a few weeks ago & it's been amazing!! No more being cooped up in the rabbit/computer room - I am free to surf anywhere in the apartment. Until this morning. smile27.gif I thought Mat had done something this morning when he got home from work, but he says he didn't do anything & that it was like that when he turned it on! It definately wasn't acting up when I turned it off last night. So lord knows what happened!! All I know is that it must be pretty shitty if my friend who's a computer whiz has no idea what to do!! Thankfully we got a great warranty so I'll be calling Staples tomorrow to see about getting a replacement.... REALLY friggin annoying! (I'm back to being stuck in the rabbit/computer room on the old PC that we're clearing off to sell for a couple bucks. BOO)

 

Biggest Loser: I haven't been doing great, but I haven't been doing bad either. I've been slacking majorly on my morning walks. It's so hard to get up & get outside right away! I am not a morning person (even if "morning" may be noon when I drag my a$$ out of bed!!!) so to get up & be out of the house in less than 30 minutes is a joke. I even try to do this without having coffee first & I want to cry. Motivation is that the Timmies is on the way home from my usual walk route so if I'm good & push myself hard enough I'll stop in for a large double-double to take home & enjoy on the couch! flypig.gif Then I feel like I have wings! BUT if I have coffee first, I usually feel sick to my stomach on the walk. It's a lose-lose situation, I swear!!! Plus Mat doesn't understand my lack of ability to get up because when he's dayshift he gets up at 4:10am. Okay, 4:10am doesn't exist in my world unless it's because I haven't been to bed yet. I laugh when ge gets in from nightshift (5:30am) & asks if I'm gonna get up & start my day. rofl.gif It's so funny that it's not even worth getting upset at his smartassness.

 

Gym has been good! I go Mon, Tues, Thurs & Fri with Mat. He's amazing at going no matter how his day was or what shift he works so that keeps me going!! I've been upping my weights lately & am proud to say that I can now squat 60lbs!!! In my opinion I should be doing much more because I have amazingly strong thighs (don't need anyone to hold onto my legs when they give me a piggyback - I could actually drop them to the ground if I give a bit of a squeeze too!) but I guess progress is a good thing! I've been considering taking a cardio-dance class on Tuesday nights, but the regular work-out I do takes usually at least an hour so I can't imagine adding another hour to being at the gym! Plus alot of the gym bunnies take this class & I just can't take them seriously. I'm a b*tch at the gym. lol

 

Eating has been decent. Lots of fruit & veggies. No take out (other than Subway or Timmies coffee) & nice healthy dinners with alot of fish, chicken & veggies! I gave in & had pretzels at the movies tonight because I was craving salt & figured it would be better than the buttery popcorn or chips!

I have been dying for a P'zone from Pizza Hut though!!! I don't think I've ever had one before & everytime I see the commercial I practically start to drool! Mat offered to take me on Wednesday to celebrate another week of good work! So assuming I see a change (for the better) on the scale, then we're off to the hut. But then I'll definately do a morning walk Thursday! wink.gif

 

I'm rambling. But it's okay. It's my blog & I'll ramble if I want to....

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
