Long weekend!! with DONE PIC!!

Thursday, June 30, 2011



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!!! emoticon!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great pic, and great blog I know the feeling, I brought diet soda with me. To be honest the one time I drank alcohol, I realized that I had definetely loss my resistance one small glass of wine and I was done so be careful. If you do drink ensure you have TONS of water, the protein is already hard on the liver so if you add alcohol you may feel bad. Enjoy camping!

    Remember, it's a lifestyle - make it work for you. If you cut back your calories in some of your meals during the day, up your activity a bit then can't you use those additional calories for beer? If so - go for it! :)

Have a GREAT weekend!!
