A detox of sorts.

So I am finally going to post some pictures...
This week...has just been a bad one for me.
I'v eaten too much...and things that I shouldn't be eating...I'v slacked on the excersise (near the end of the week) I have a bad headcold/sore through...and this acne fest on my face has seriously put a damper on my mood...I feel disgusting when I leave the house every single day. I have no idea what is doing it to hasent been this bad in like 3 years!! And this is JUST since i'v started to eat better!! Ah... Bleh.

I'm just going to post some pictures from the past few days...not really in any real order..they might be special things that have come in the mail, meals, treats...SNACKS (need to stop) etc..

Here we go!

bfast a few days ago...peanut butter puffins and green monster

Yea...don't ask :S

Have you got YOUR free box of kashi???

more snacking...addiction must stop

annnnd thursday..this surprise showed up at my door...and I think its what pushed me over the and lead me to a detox (more to come) not the detox you are thinking

a few boxes like this (cudnt even eat them all..they wud have went bad..ended up giving some away!)

Im getting a tummy ache just looking at these.
no more!

seriously .. you don't want to knwo about my weightgain the day after eating those babies...not pretty. good thing its water weight.

On to...not eating so much (I literally felt like throwing up when I woke up the next day...sugary food just doesn't sit well with me!)..I learned.

Dry toast and lemon water. :|

this lovely package came in the mail for me..can't remember which day...
creamed cinnamon honey from a farm in winnipeg..mmm

these also came for me in the mail...
The popular book everyone is obviously I had to! Great going to try some later!



Cuz us canadian girls aren't as lucky as all the american bloggies who can waltz out to their local grocery store and find greek yogurt waiting for no...we strain our own. lol

My lunch on detox day 1...all organic/gluten free...(literally made of honey seeds..nuts.flax..etc)

I found these to be ok for what it was..kind of plain though...

Now onto detox day 2...

My detox isn't STOPPING's just..cutting out every single piece of junk I can think of...sugary foods...and getting back on track with WW POINTS...I literally felt so grose after all those sugary chocolate dipped fruits and snack yea...motivation is coming back..I hope.

almond honey butter with flax...? mmmmm.
- one slice of whole wheat toast with the honey butter and cut up banana on top
- lemon spritzer -no sodium (yum)

It is currently RAINING
but it is a long weekend in canada..nice eh?

I get Monday off..and i need it..
I'v been feeling really down about the fact that I doubt I will be able to take a holiday before the summer...(i should be able to) but for some reason can't.. I would have liked to take a week off to visit Lee before the craziness of summer camp starts..I'll be working 50 hours a week during the summer..with no chance of a hooliday except weekends.


Anyways..thats about it..Today I plan on doing some yoga..NAPPING alot (because it's raining and the weekend..and I can) and also cuz i want to sleep away this head cold I have :(

Hope you all are having a great weekend...

Sorry guys..again no picture post (meaning tomorrow will be a doozy)

Just wanted to say.. 2 good friends...Jeremy and James..passed away two years ago a tragic car accident.

It was a relationship that shouldn't have happened..but some how, it did happen..this accident shouldn't have happened, but it did happen...and I will always miss you boys!

Jer - I will think of a good Lou dobbs put down to honour you today..because I know you wouldn't have it any other way. I will always remember you as the well dressed guy in the back of my english lecture :) The funny guy, smart guy and all around amazing guy! I told Lee, that I will always have a crush on you...and now that you are in heaven...I know we will meet again...So many people think about you and will always care for you...

Today I'll play Hinder on repeat in memory of you!!

Peace out!

Like big pimples under the skin (that you cant see) but I can feel..and ugh..sorry for tmi but they hurt...

what a way to get the day started!
I'll have pictures for you later..but this was amazing!

2 tablespoons olive oil
6 small red potatoes, sliced
1 cup torn fresh spinach
2 tablespoons sliced green onions
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
salt and pepper to taste
6 eggs

1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Place potatoes in the skillet, cover, and cook about 10 minutes, until tender but firm. Mix in spinach, green onions, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking 1 to 2 minutes, until spinach is wilted.
In a medium bowl, beat together eggs and milk. Pour into the skillet over the vegetables. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until eggs are firm

thats right..spinach and potato fritatta! Now I cut this wayyyy in half cuz it was just for me (and it still made a lot) I used 2 eggs..3 mini potatos and halfed everything else (cept I did use alot of spinach) :) I also used soy milk instead of regular milk

I'm gonna let my tummy sit for an hour and then my work out plan is as followed..

-30 minutes yoga
-30 minutes treadmill
-10 minutes eliptical
-Walking to work and back - I'm gonna say an hour and 20

GO ME and go YOU hope you have a great day! (pictchas and updates tonight)

Green Monster Mania

Whattt a day. I'm not sore yet from the workout...maybe tomorrow? I really hope I can keep that up!! Every day! Woo.

Happy mothers day!! I woke up..around 7:30 today. Gave my mummmm her prezzie. I had printed off a bunch of pictures of Maggie (rip) our old dog who passed away this year (we had her for 18 years..yes..18!!) anyways had a bunch of her pictures printed onto photopaper..and had it framed for my mom!!

Here it is!

and a cute card :)


Happy mothers day!

So I already told you about my work out earlier...I was sooo tired after, but thats ok. Had a shower...did some running around with mom...and then cleaned for a few hours!!! But I did have time for a few snacks ;)

Before working out

After workout/shower...I had the LAST chocolate/banana muffin with peanut butter on top and a zero calorie diet pepsi :)

- wrap with left over ground turkey/veggie stirfry - feta cheese bbq sauce and organic lettuce...all baked to yummyness with 12 kettle cooked jalapano chips!! mmm


This was so good that I had it for dinner..(had to use up the stirfry I made anyways)

Can I also just say that..I bought organic yogurt covered raisins the other day...and i am now addicted..HIDE THEM FROM ME!!! hehe.

Now onto dinner...

Ok so, you know what I'm talkin about when I say green monster..I'v seen a couple fantastic ones on several different sites..(oh she glows) being one of them...there are a few others but I can't remember them all! Anyways I decided to make one!

I used

- a big handful of spinach
- one chopped mango
- big juicy strawberries
- goatsyogurt
- skim milk
- splenda brown sugar
- cinnamon *this was so yummy in it*
- and a touch of agave nectar


My dad was gagging when i added the spinach to the blender...I asked him to try he did...oh should have heard him!!! His reaction was priceless...he LOVEDDDDD IT...I wanted to take a picture of him but he was like no wayyy..haha...That just goes to monsters..yum yum.

For dinner (with the green monster..I had the same wrap I had at lunch, because it was so yummy!)

and I just enjoyed 25 minutes in the hot tub!! wow it felt great!
Great day!

I'll leave you with one of my favorite songs..
Just give this band a chance!! (they aren't singing mmmbop anymore!) If you haven't listened to Hanson in awhile (since your teenybop days) ..They write/play/produce their own music..and its great!!! They all are married now AND ALL HAVE CHILDREN!! Taylor also has a new band called tinted windows..check em out..
p.s I'v been a huge huge huge hanson fan since I was 11. lol :P

This song is great...I think it talks to me through this journey of weight loss..and lovin life!! No matter matter what has happened in the past :)
