My weekend and other stuff :)

Monday, June 28, 2010

I already got questioned about my weekend so here is an update ^_^

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the support and advice for my first ever date on saturday. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling well so it was postponed to tomorrow night. We were going to see a movie but now we're just doing dinner because I have other things to do to get ready to go to the cottage wednesday night. So I had a nice relaxing day on saturday, didn't eat a whole lot lol, and then yesterday I went to my parents for dinner because my mom's birthday was last week. They ordered Chinese, which I went easy on to not upset my stomach, and we had a fruit dessert. Can't remember what it was called but it was so good. It was like a big tart, tart dough for the crust, filled with custard creme and topped with a big mound of fresh berries. It had blueberries and blackberries and raspberries and it was sooo good. Can't imagine it was too light on calories but I'm sure we could've done much worse lol.

This week is Canada Day! It's on thursday so we don't actually get a long weekend but everyone in the office is taking friday off so we get a super long weekend ^_^ I'm leaving wednesday after work to go to my parents new cottage. I'm so excited because I've only been able to go once so far becasue I usually work weekends at my second job and I had a saturday class too. The class is over now and I'll only be working every 3rd weekend so I get to go again. Last time I went was the May long weekend and the water was still too cold for swimming. I will be swimming a lot this weekend lol, I'll try to keep an apporximate time so I can track when I get back on Sunday night. I'll be writing down my food as well to enter when I get back. There isn't internet there, or even cell reception so I won't be on SP for 4 days.

I have a lot to do before we go though lol, it's a friends birthday so I'm making her cupcakes. That's what she requested lol, cakes are my specialty ^_^ I'll be making flower cupcakes and before i go I have to bake the cupcakes and make the icing and make all the fondant decorations. I'll be making about 10-15 petals for each cupcake, and they're all seperate pieces lol. I will definitely get a picture to post afterwards. I didn't get a picture of the last cake I made, the red velvet one, because my camera battery died. This time I'll be puitting more work into it though so I'm taking extra batteries ^_^

I'm also going to go buy one of those beach cover up things, because I plan on being in my bathing suit most of the weekend lol, and I need to pick up some more sunblock. I have very sensitive skin. Last time I went, I got a bad sunburn in about an hour, with sunblock on, and then I had an allergic reaction to a new kind of sunblock, on top of my burn from the previous day. So I'm going to get some expensive stuff for sensitive skin and what not. I actually still have a bit of color from last time, so hopefully that will help but I'm not taking any chances this time ^_^ I'm gonna go prepared so I can enjoy the whole weekend!

    Ooooh a Cottage - what fun! Please send pictures of the cottage. Sounds like a lovely weekend! Have you told your family about your new Spark Lifestyle? Are they supportive? Hopefully, you will have time to check out some Spark grilling recipes before you go to the cottage. Then everyone can enjoy a healthy weekend.

    Hey, I have an idea. Not sure you will like my idea. I'm waiting until we have our own house again so I can do this. But I'm pretty sure it will kill any desire I have to even think about unhealthy food choices. Why don't you make sure to have someone take pictures of you in your bathing suit. Front view, profile (this is the worst one for me) and rear view.

    When you come home, paste the pictures up on your fridge. Or better yet, paste one on the inside of your fridge too. Think of other places to paste the pics. In your pantry, on your bathroom mirror, etc. You know your hot spots. Then, every time you loose 10 lbs, take 3 more pictures in the same bathing suit & the same poses. You can start keeping a visual of your success. I can't help but imagine how motivating that will be for you!

    I'm scared to death, but I'm going to try to do this too. Since I absolutely HATE pictures of myself and I'm very self-conscious, I'm going to have to wait until we move into our new house (we're staying with friends right now). There's no way I'm posting pics of myself in a bathing suit in someone else's house. But if we do this together, we can keep each other posted on our success.

    Have a wonderful weekend! And remember, you've just GOT to fill us all in on your date BEFORE you leave town!!!
