Hot Hot Hot day for Ramadan
Friday, May 25, 2018      4 comments

Seemingly overnight, we went from just over 0C to 30-35C. It's such an adjustment but it's so nice that summer is here after a long, long, long winter. I always forget that summer heat brings as many challenges as a cold winter does. I worry abo... Read more

February update
Tuesday, February 27, 2018      8 comments

I had my lab results follow up with my doctor on Friday. My cholesterol is too high again. It's so overwhelming because I don't understand it really. That means on Saturday and Sunday I was in a mood and not doing my best. It's hard to stay posi... Read more

Thursday, January 25, 2018      7 comments

It has been a pretty decent month for me. I lost a couple of pounds and my doctor was very happy with the fact I was down 10lbs overall for the year. Of course, she still wants me to lose more and she also wants my blood pressure even lower. It ... Read more

I'm having a down day.
Thursday, July 20, 2017      4 comments

I'm struggling today. There are several factors contributing to this but the number 1 is that the scale is not going down. The inches are, which is great. Every day or so, I'm seeing some new indentation in my thigh or so that my pants are a lit... Read more
And the wedding freak outs begin
Wednesday, July 12, 2017      5 comments

After my last zen blog entry, I had a couple of freak outs. All wedding related and if I'm honest, all fairly ridiculous. I am what I call, a pre-panicker. It has served me well with my events background. I have sleepless nights weeks and m... Read more

This morning, I had another trip to the Dentist. I am behind on some work so I have a lot to do. For the past 4 years I've either had no dental coverage or didn't have enough money to afford the copay. So as I sit there going through two filling... Read more

I feel like I'm definitely on a roll. Since I made the conscious effort to stay on track over the weekend, positive things have happened. I was down 1 lb last week which is an improvement on the -.5 or no losses I'd been experiencing lately. And... Read more
Weekend planning
Wednesday, April 12, 2017      5 comments

I've finally admitted to myself that what is stopping me from really breaking through and making progress, is my behaviour on the weekends. During the week, I plan my meals, drink lots of water, go for walks and on the weekend? I don't really do... Read more
