Hello 2013!!!!

Last night we had a lovely evening, just the 3 of us :)  We watched Brave and Jumangi, had a countdown with DS at 10pm and had great appetizers and even better cocktails.

I still need to work out my "resolutions" (I think of them more like goals), but as the true procrastinator that I am, I'm only starting to think of them.

So what are your goals/resolutions for 2013??  Have you started making any?

Back to the Weight Watchers bandwagon ...

As Cathy Zielske likes to say in the Move More Eat Well Class, "so that happenned...", today was one of those days.

So over the weekend, I decided I needed to get back on the WW bandwagon.  Sadly, I had no idea how far I had strayed from my allotted point count for the day ...  and I was thinking THIS WAS A GOOD DAY!! ugh

On a positive note, my Quinoa Chili (linked below) is only 3.5 points per serving :)  However, my leftover turkey casserole was a whopping 7.5 points per serving.

Oh well.  So that happenned.  Now it's time to move on.  And moving I will be tonight.  Need to work off part of those 6 extra points I ate today ;)

Menu Plan Monday

Like I said, we're back on the wagon.  Planning meals, eating healthy and moving on.  Usually when I've done the meal planning in advance DH poo-poo's the idea and the plan goes to crap.

WELL.  Imagine my surprise when he suggested to me this past weekend we need to plan out our meals better.  YAY!

So in preparation, I've poked through the freezer to see what we have (previous freezer meals) and spent the better part of the afternoon on Pinterest.  Let's hope there were some good ones ;)

Monday:  Quinoa Chili

Tuesday: Maple Glazed Salmon

Wednesday: leftovers - I made WW 0 point Cabbage Soup on the weekend so this is also on the leftover list ...  if there's any left ;)

Thursday: Crockpot Teriyaki Chicken

Friday: Takeout.  I'm actually craving the salad from Montforts so I'm hoping to convince DH to pick that up on his way home.

I'm also going to attempt these at some point : Pumpkin Scones

So if you're reading, do you menu plan?  What are you planning for the week?

Right now ....

There have been a few blog posts along these lines and I love the idea so here goes ...

6:42, our house, on the couch ...

Listening to DS and DH playing Minecraft.  The new XBox addiction for both.

Eating nothing.  Just had dinner.  0 point WW Cabbage Soup.  Still a bit hungry though.  This diet stuff is sucky :(

Drinking water.  Just plain ol' tap water.

Wearing yoga pants and a workout shirt.  No socks and unwashed hair in a ponytail.

Feeling content.  Life is good.

Weather has been cloudy and chilly all day.  Raining on and off.

Wanting to eat something, but I'm either going to grab some veggies or chew gum instead.

Needing a pedicure.  Yet another thing that didn't get crossed off the list this summer.

Thinking of my next batch of letters for my consulting biz, not happy with how the wording has been so far.

Enjoying spending this wonderful weekend with my boys.  Again, life is good.

Whoa! Where did that summer go???

I knew it had been awhile that I hadn't posted on my blog ...  but I had no idea it has been THIS long!

Summer was a whirlwind of renovations, taking the next few steps with my consulting business, lots of sports time for the little guy and many, MANY family filled weekends either poolside or at the beach.  A wonderful summer it was :)

Now that we're back to the routine of school and work, new schedule for sports and activities with a couple of birthday parties tossed in for fun it's time to add the blog back into the mix.

I have some plans for this week to get my momentum going, but until then, for my fellow Canucks I hope you're having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend :)

OLW Blog Hop - May 1st, letter to myself ....

Hello you!!

Today is a good day and all is good in the world.

You're focusing on yourself and healthy habits and it's finally starting to pay off!  You're getting stronger, feeling happier and in better shape then you've been in months.  Not mention it's a great feeling that your pants are finally starting to get looser...  AND you're fitting into "new" pants that you haven't won in years.  YAY YOU!!

There's a nice stash of cash growing in the bank because you're not so focused on shopping so much ...  and you know what??  Noone is missing what you're not buying and bringing home ;)  Keep remembering that thought while you're on scrappy sites and especially reading enabling posts.

The house is looking great thanks to the decluttering and working a little at a time.  You're doing a great job spending time and focusing on those that love you.

But a few things need a bit of work ...  like work.  We need to focus and change things there.  You're miserable and you know it.  But all is not lost as there's a plan in place.  Just keep plugging along and soon enough, like everything else a new plan will take shape.

Well done old friend, keep it up :)

If you're following from the blog hop, next up is Missus Wookie.

Below is a list of everyone on the blog hop :)
As always, thanks for stopping by!!

Week in the Life - 2012

Bad, BAD blogger!!!
I just realized I haven’t blogged in ages ...  well, a couple of weeks anyway.  Life has been a little hectic lately for some reason.
But I really am hoping to keep up this week. Why THIS week in particular?? Because it’s Ali’s “Week in the Life” week.  For those of you who don’t know what WITL is, it’s simple.  It’s like Project Life on steroids.  More of an hour by hour capture of what’s going on. 

Here’s a link for more info J

Also, Big Picture Classes has a FREE forum ready to go.  Not sure if I’m going to sign up for the forum, because I’ll end up chatting more than scrapping.  But it’s there for anyone who’s interested.

I am no way an expert on this project, but I really do love it J  It’s a way to focus on the everyday and enjoy the little things in life.
A few pictures I plan on taking every day are:
What I’m wearing to work.
My lunch & supper.
The temperature, also probably a long range forecast at the beginning of the week.
The actual weather outside.
Different clocks and times of day.
Aim for a self portrait everyday, besides the work outfit.
TV shows we watch.
Video games DS is playing.
Prices of things : gas, milk at the store, flyers this week
Also, I'm hoping to remember to take a picture of my mileage before I leave for work in the morning - it would be interesting to see how much I really do drive over a week.

And yes, my house is *tidy* but it’s not super duper clean.  So this week will be a true picture of what life is like at our house – messyness and all.
