2 years!!

Yesterday was our 2 year anniversary! Hard to believe that Joey and I have been married for 2 years already! I was a little down because Joey has been gone for 3 weeks and won't be home until July 28th but thanks to some kind words and cyber hugs from the ww.ca people, the day got better. There were a lot of suggestions to get together with friends, which made me realize that the reason I don't really have any friends is because I have slowly pushed them away. I don't know why I did this, I just know it's time to fix this if I can because I used to love getting together with friends so much, and I miss that.
So Joey was able to call, which was awesome, because I haven't heard his voice since canada day!
There is a new job posting at work, dayshift and twice the money, for 3 months and then I would go back to my old job, I really want to get this but I am so nervous to apply and it will cut into my time with joey when he comes home, but I am seriously thinking about applying. I am high enough on seniority that I may have a reasonable shot at getting it. Oh well I will think about it overnight.
Anyway, I guess I'm off to exercise even though it is pretty hot out.....yuck.
Take care,

I am so happy that today is friday!! I worked 2 double shifts this week and they were good shifts but I'm tired. I really miss Joey today too. Only 2 weeks until he gets home!!
Weigh in this week was awesome, I lost 3.4 for a total of 42.4!! It feels great. I had a great walk today too, 5.4k in 64 mins. It was so hot today too, we are finally getting some summer weather. I am getting up early tomorrow to walk so that I don't get as hot as I did today.
So I tried cherries last night for the first time and I loooove them!!! The only place I could find some though was costco so I had to buy a 4lb box of them, which is good because they have a short season and I'm going to freeze some to have later in the year.
The tall ships are in town and I'd love to go and see them but I'm not good in crowds unless I have someone to go with, mainly Joey, so I'm not going. I'll just try to think of something for us to do when he comes home. Well I guess that's all, I live a very boring life,

I had an alright weekend I guess. I was bored yesterday and I went to penningtons to see the girls, in a way I miss working there because the people are great but I also don't miss alot of things about the job. Anyway, a skirt I've been looking at for a long time was on sale so I figured I'd try it on. I took a 26 and a 24 into the fitting room and the 24 fit!!! It fits good enough that I could wear it now! So I bought the skirt and a top to go with it and I feel so good! I haven't worn a 24 in so long. When I left working Penningtons I was a 28!!! anyway it was great. I am going to wear this outfit when Joey comes home and I go pick him up.
I am doing nothing today, well actually, I'm making soup and exercising but I'm not going out. I have a couple of really busy days ahead of me, I took 2 extra 10 hour shifts at work so I'll be really tired by the weekend but I wanted some extra money for Joey's vacation.
Well off to exercise I guess.
More later,

I am soooo sore right now. I decided to clean and de-clutter my apartment today, which turned into 6 hours of work!!! I did the usual stuff as well as steam cleaning the carpet and furniture in the living room and other jobs that I've been putting off! now when Joey gets back home we just have to clean out the storage room and I'll be happy. That is another huge job and I am not doing it alone.
Anyway since the furniture is still drying I am hanging out in the bedroom watching T.V and surfing the net, which is nice for a change. I don't see the bedroom much lately since I work the sleep shift monday night-thursday night.
I think I will walk if the weather is nice tomorrow, it has been really crappy lately so I've been doing the eliptical instead. Also I think I've been avoiding walking since some jerk was yelling things at me from his apartment. These things really bother me although I try not to let them.
I guess it's time to get back at it!!
Anyway I'm off to bed since it was such a long day!

Weigh in!

Well I didn't do too badly today, I lost 0.6 even after the bbq and drinks this weekend. I tried to make good choices but I still splurged a little. I know I need to start measuring my portions again because trying to eye-ball things isn't working for me.
I also don't have alot of motivation for exercise these past few days but I'll get back on track. I ordered a pedometer on costco.ca yesterday so hopefully it doesn't take long getting here. I also got a sport watch today, it's not fancy but it has a timer on it to time my walks, and eventually my running when I start. I would love to start running soon and eventually get a timex ironman watch.
I am also thinking about switching to core, I'm nervous though because I love certain snacks that aren't core but I can use ap's for those. I also know that Joey wouldn't like core but I want him to keep following the program with me. I'll think about it for a week and in the meantime eat very few processed foods and see how I do.
Well I guess that's all for tonight!

Back at it!!

So I went home to Cape Breton for the weekend and I went off program alot but I had fun. It was our yearly family gathering so I'm ok with it but now I have to get back on track. I didn't exercise today but I will get up early to do something tomorrow. My biggest motivation is to lose more weight before Joey gets home on July 27th. I miss him alot tonight for some reason and it's only been a week.
I have decided what I am going to do when I hit my goal weight, I know it's really far off but I would really like to get professional pictures done at a studio. This is something I can look forward to and work towards.
anyway, off to relax before bed and get ready to get back on track tomorrow.
