Lake Laurentian

Monday, September 05, 2011

Well we have finally completed this trail after our second attempt. First time we brought the dog and it was quiet hot outside and the dog just couldnt go no more so we turned around and went back. This time its much cooler and we left the pooch home . Took us 110 mins to complete the trail that is about 3.5 k each way. some points were quite pretty and it took all the way to one of the beaches. The only things was there was alot of up and down hills but just think of the calories we burned.

sugar bush trail and Howards nature trail

Monday, September 05, 2011

we did these trails while my mom was visiting us they were very long trails i think they both around 1k or so. This is why we were all to do two trails in one day. Nothing too exciting about either of these trails but its nice to have two more trails completed off the list.

My Moment

Sunday, September 04, 2011

so today was another one of those days where ya have that feel awful about yourself moments. Today i decided i was going to go the the plus size store and look for a few deals as i have some discount coupons i can use. I was looking for a pair of pants. Well after trying on numerous pairs i was tired of trying on pants and seeing what i saw. i said to myself" does God know im only suppose to have one REAR in the rear not in the front too" i know to some this may sound funny but its very depressing to me and i left with nothing and except for the awful feeling and then the tears began to flow. i didnt want to do anything but go home. On the drive home i cried and cried and as the tears were streaming down my face and the thought of getting home and going to my room to cry sound like the best option something happen. All of a sudden i thought i cant go home and cry in my room i still have 10 mins on the elliptical i said i would do in my spark buddy Jo's honor. Then it hit me......... i COULD go to my room and cry OR i COULD do something about it. So thats what i did. I walked in the door didnt even take off my shoes , grabbed a water and hopped on the elliptical. I put all of my pain and saddness into exercising i pushed myself hard. the elliptical isnt always the easiest for me but with all that energy i did it. i didnt just do 10 mins for Jo nope i did 20. Then i took a small water break and hopped on the bike and did 10 mins on there. I was drenched in sweat and beleive it or not i felt something too .....it wasnt that awful feeling it was the feeling of calmness and happy i used my energy for something positive. It felt great . Now when i look back at my day i can say wow you did good. In total i did 40 mins on the bike and 20 mins on the ellipitcal and now im getting ready to go walk a small trail with the family. The other day a fellow spark buddy told me when i was having a difficult moment then that it was a test and that i had passed it with flying colours. I think this was another test of life that if life gives you lemons make lemonade and i passed with flying colours again . yay me

    Yea You!!!! emoticon you make me so proud.

What a great lesson for all of us. You did the right thing you get a emoticon for that.

I know the feelings you were having all too well, I hate trying on clothes to get ready for any occasion, it sends me into a mood, I used to say what h_ll and go eat fast food, I don't do that now. BUT I have never came home and exercised, I am just so happy right now, our little girl is growing up.

Welcome to your new lifestyle, soon all the clothes you dream of will fit you Dear.
