Woohoo, I'm DONE!! So my "d" looks a little lame, and not really like a "d", but whatever! I took it when I came into work, before anyone else got here!
Today is my last day at the job I'm at!! I can't wait to start my new job on Tuesday!! I'm so happy to be going to a real "adult" job, full time, benefits, vacation time!!
Things have really been looking up for me lately, and I am feeling pretty happy about this! New job, losing some weight, managing my life a little better each day.
I am going Camping with my boyfriend and 4 other couples this weekend! I'm looking forward to some down-time. We're not going to be really far out into the wilderness, just outside of the city in a campground. I want to go swimming, and hiking, and just have fun. I bought a new sleeping bag, fleece sweater for the cooler nights, and a rain jacket incase it rains. Food is going to be a challenge though. I have a ton of beef bugers to bring, but have to get some more veggie burger for my guy. thinking of bringing eggs for breakfast. I know it's fun to cook over the fire, but frankly, I hate the cleanup! It seems like no matter what, everything burns to the bottom of the pot/pan. I will have to try to find eassy to heat up stuff. I printed out a bunch of game ideas for adults so we don't get too bored. Camping is bringing me my greatest challenge while being on the Dukan diet...Beer and smores. If I can avaoid them, I will be so proud of myself for sticking to my guns! Having said that, I really really really want to drink when I'm camping!! I've managed almost 2 weeks alcohol free on this diet, and it's been easy so far, but this is going to sting. I know it will be worth it in the end not to drink, weight loss wise, but I'm wondering if I'm going to be sacrificing some of my social life too. I won't be the only person not drinking, as a preggers pal is going too, but still!! Ugh, enough about it already!!
lately I have been reading a lot of Done Girl blogs, and it's so much fun! I never used to read any blogs, but this is different. I think it can be super motivational, and a good learning experience. I like getting to know people, and it's really made me feel a lot more comfortable about who I am, knowing I'm not the only one going through weight loss or self esteem issues. I really appreciate when people do a great blog! Maybe one day mine will be really well written and funny!!
Hope all of us Canadians have a super fun Canada long weekend, and that our American pals have a great 4th of July!! To anyone else with a long weekend or whatever from another country, hope you have an awesome weekend too!!!
