I'm just off...

Sunday, February 01, 2009

I guess the last week was a bit much for me. I'm just a bit sad and a hair depressed I suppose, I'm being somewhat anti-social about going to social events. Granted with Carnival money was a factor as well. And of course insomnia.

I'm completely not going to the Super Bowl party I was planning to attend, 29 people attending and right now I just don't feel like dealing with that many people. C'est le vie I suppose. It's even Sunday evening and there isn't a lot for me to go out and entertain myself with. Perhaps I'll do some extra exercise later, that remains to be seen yet.

    Sorry you're feeling a bit off! I guess it happens even to the best of us...hope tomorrow you're feeling better! Good idea about doing some exercise and getting those endorphins flowing!

Passing of my great-aunt

Sunday, January 25, 2009

My great-aunt whom I was quite close to passed away this morning/late last evening. I'm headed home to be with my mom as she is the closest thing my great-aunt had to a daughter. My great-aunt Bertie was my mom's mother's sister, the two sisters married brothers so sort of strengthened the closeness I've felt with her over the years.

I'll be gone for a few days and my challenges will likely be skewed since I'll be gone. Take care everyone and I'll be back in a few days.

Horseback Riding

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

So today I went horseback riding for the first time in 5 years or so, and I have not ridden on any sort of regular basis in probably 10-11 years. It was fun but I'm sure I'll be feeling it tomorrow. I decided I would start taking lessons as this was always one part of my life that I had enjoyed immensely.

we own horses and need to get our lazy butts on them, it burns a lot of calories.
Keep up the good work.

Bootcamp and 2009 so far

Sunday, January 04, 2009

I decided to start the SP Bootcamp that began today. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with it though my calendar seems much lighter now. I have my hopes up that I'll complete it this time. emoticon

So far this year, I've been good about exercising but not so great about what I'm eating though I haven't had much in the way of sweets so far. Oh today I did have a smallish fruit tart and dim sum though. It was however slow getting food at the dim sum place so ultimately it was a very small meal. It was sort of a special lunch with friends so eating a couple of fried items and a sweet item wasn't too horrible. At least most of what we got was not fried! Also I went to a friend's bday party/bar hop last night and had only one alcoholic drink and some water. Yay! The one thing that's really gotten me is the pot of soup I made, somehow I can never seem to have just one bowl of it!

    I hear you on the soup. I am the same way...now I try to make it as low calorie and low sodium as I can, just so I can eat MORE! It never fills me up! Keep up the good work, Limey!

Happy New Year everyone!

Well my New Years's Eve wasn't too bad, though I ate a bit much last night and today. However I had no dessert last night and only one drink! Oh and I walked about 20 blocks or so, so definitely got some exercise in. as well. Too bad I wasn't with people who wanted to go dancing, which is really what I wanted to do. But we did see the fireworks at midnight.

Today I've eaten a bit much, I seem to always do that when I make a pot of soup, I seem to not be able to get enough of it. I did however walk this morning even though my legs were really sore from walking around last night in my slight heels. I also stretched today and did 150 crunches. I really plan on getting back on the horse now!
