So it's been a while again! I have been keeping busy with work, and some family are visiting from Cape Breton. I love having visitors but I had to lay down the law a little about the use of margarine and oil!! See my grandfather does all the choice and he cooks healthy foods but uses too much margarine and oil. After a few gentle reminders he didn't use as much as usual.
On another note, I totally shocked myself when I stepped on the scale at my meeting and saw that I have lost 50 pounds!!!!!!!! I was so excited. I have been in weight watchers since Feb 23 and I am happy with my progress so far. I have had some bad weeks but I always get back on track and keep going!
I start my new job Monday, the same day as Joey comes home. I am excited about the job but I am nervous as well. I am really excited about Joey coming home, it gets really boring and lonely around here without him.
The last night at my old job turned out to be pretty eventful too, I had to call 911 about a fire set outside the house across the street, I gave a statement to a super hot police officer, and then I was up most of the night because of an intense lightening storm that knocked out our power, so I had to monitor the alarm system!!! That may have been the busiest night since I started there!!
Anyway, I guess that's all the excitement I have for now!

Lazy Sunday!

I'm pretty sure I'm back to normal weight wise now, which is good. I feel better now that I'm getting my veggies and water in again, it's amazing how much of a difference it makes.
I had a great walk yesterday, 6.8k in 80 Min's, I decided to take a new route and see where it took me and I'm glad that I did. I am really struggling to get my butt out and walk today too, this always happens when I leave it too late in the day, I obsess over the fact that I didn't exercise, but I think I'll take an evening walk after supper for a change today. I wish I knew why it's so hard to get motivated to do anything lately.
I guess that's all, I'm off to mope around I guess.

So a lot has happened since my last post. Joey only came home for 1 week and then he had to leave today again for the arctic. He'll be gone for 20 days this time, we had a great week together though. we went to Cape Breton for a pool party and fireworks, we went to the waterfront, we went to dinner and a movie and we had a picnic in a cute picnic park. It was great but I am up a few pounds. I'm hoping it's mostly water weight and that I will be able to get it off by next weigh in. I skipped weigh in yesterday, which I kn ow is bad but I was super stressed about the weight gain. I am ready to get back on track, although the vacation was nice.
On another note, I got the job I was talking about earlier, it's not day shift though, it's evenings and awake overnights. I was going to say no but it is a great chance to get lots of training and experience in the field. I took the part time instead of the full time so hopefully this will work out and become permanent.
Oh well, I guess that's all, off to another boring weekend alone!
