I was asked out this week. I will admit it was flattering to be asked out by a guy over 15 years my junior and well, he was rather good looking. He was not upset when I said no and as an alternative a group of us are going out this weekend. ... Read more

Yesterday I needed to admit to myself in writing that I had fallen off the wagon. The support I got here was amazing and I thank all of you who commented. Admitting that I wasn't falling my proven path was something I didn't want to hav... Read more
Fell of the wagon? More like jump, tuck and rolled away.

Eating when you work is almost as bad as eating while watching TV. I know I need to stay focused on what I'm eating and not let the hours get in the way of good health. Ironically it's not the weekends when I'm out and about that I'm ea... Read more

Looking at pictures are a huge wake up. When I saw the pictures of me today at the castles it made me realize I have a long way to go and need to stay focused on the long road ahead. It's so easy to get distracted, especially when I travel and p... Read more

Yesterday I went for an amazing lunch. It fit well into my calorie range and I got to try new flavours I had never had before. This was the second meal I ate out this week though and I know I'm pushing the limit. When a group invited me out t... Read more

Today was a lot of fun, won a couple of rounds, lost a big one. We had someone heading back home to Canada today after two months in Dublin so there was a going away party for her at a pub. All that good pub food. I found a broiled salm... Read more

Yesterday I went on a road trip to northern Ireland and the Giant's Causeway. A co-worker and myself hiked the cliffs, they were awe inspiring. We kept going further and further until we realized we had walked 8 KM and maybe it was time to turn ... Read more

My first week in Ireland is coming to an end and I'm getting ready to drive up the coast to the Causeway. I had a couple of celebrations this week that are really helping me stay on track. It started with the airplane. At the beginning of ... Read more

I was given props today from the agents I'm working with, I'm the only person they have every known to come over from North America and rent a car. I can't imagine being here without one. Eating today was very good. It was quite cold th... Read more

I now can drive down the road and not panic when cars come towards me...as long as I'm in the right lane. I found the grocery shopping a lot of fun in Dublin, there are lots of healthy fresh breads for me to try out and finding smaller ... Read more

1. I can drive from the right of the car without driving down the wrong side of the road ... almost 2. I can park my car between two other cars without hitting anything ... but it takes 3 tries 3. They have way too many amazing pastries t... Read more

Tomorrow I head out of town for 5 weeks, so tonight is the standard mommy and Shelby bonding night. She picks out what meal she is going to die without while I'm gone and we curl up with a movie. Tonight she's picked homemade Chinese an... Read more
Change is a good thing but can be scary

Nothing stays the same, I like that. I don't always like the way things change but I know that this too will pass, eventually everything does. I've noticed this year that just before going on a long trip I gain 3 pounds. I might have done ... Read more

Being able to walk up to my closet and know that nothing in there is too tight is still a strange concept for me. For years I've thumbed through my closet searching for things to wear and relying on long sweaters or tops to hide as m... Read more

Today I'm rolling all the holidays I'm going to miss while I'm out of town so we are doing our Thanksgiving, anniversary, birthday and Halloween dinner tonight. I decided to log my calories backwards so that I would know what I could ea... Read more
