Vehemently And Pathetically Appealing

Tuesday Oct 31st –

After some morning coffee and contemplations I headed to our house so I could use the wifi and drop off some more boxes.

 

Day three of the ’14’ day fix.

Still feeling hungry.

Feeling very sore.

Not seeing any abs.

 

Beginning to question this program 😏😜

 

Not really, it’s just when evening hits and I want sweets or popcorn or just anything very vehemently, that it feels hardest 😫

Or when I don’t have a morning cookie with my coffee πŸ˜’

 

I shouldn’t even be blogging right now cause I’m making myself hungry 😜

The Perfect Four Words

Friday Oct 27th –

”Twas a town day once again and grocery buying, my job cleaning, curtain rod price comparing and toilet brush buying were the things most needed to be accomplished πŸ˜‰

Oh the glamour of new home ownership purchases 😜

 

Pizza was brought home for supper aaand that was pretty much my day πŸ’πŸ»

Family And Faux

Friday Sept 1st –

 

 

Due to happening of the previous night, which may or may not have included running a red light, getting the flash of the camera and knowing a large fine would be arriving in the mail, I wanted to earn some money πŸ™„πŸ˜

The task assigned to me?
Gardening… 😬

3.5 hours of that later and it was as done as it can be for it only being the beginning of fall but it was more than enough for one morning πŸ˜‰

Shakespeare (my mint) couldn’t handle summers end and came to his demise… he was a good mint, sometimes πŸ˜”

 

 

Anyone know how to grow basil and mint, all winter long??! πŸ€”

It was actually ridiculously hot out considering falls deceptive look of it being a chilly day
πŸŒ€πŸ‚πŸƒ

My recovery snack post gardening… another super delicious bran muffin with cheese πŸ˜œπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

 

I truly do like bran muffins, with cheese, so it was a good thing πŸ˜‰

The father returned home for a visit! Continue reading “Family And Faux”

I’ve Got This Feeling

Wednesday Aug 30th –

 

Mike and I headed to town so he could again, try to figure out what was wrong with the car and after that try to sell some Cookies.

Which he did both 😏

An all wheel balance cured the car of its major shakes and Family Foods in Prince Albert now stocks stroopwafels! πŸ˜„πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

 

 

I cleaned and a tip was given and goodness that’s a good feeling 😎
Especially since my last job cashiering offered no tips, ever…and even if it had been offered, we employees ‘were not allowed to accept’ πŸ™„

After getting back home, I had to figure out a supper plan so I went to the 21 day fix Pinterest board πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ“š

Broccoli and cabbage were stir fried with a marinade and toasted peanuts πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Mike grilled the chicken and I made a kind of tomato ish/soya sauce which was less pleasing but alright 😜

I really liked the peanuts added in with the veggies and though I have eaten things like that before in restaurants, it somehow had never occurred to me to add them in on my own.

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday Aug 31st –

 

 

Another morning of cleaning and then town errands.

Mike required a lock chop (hair cut) before we head to the states, so we searched out a salon for him to try.
While I waited for the deed to be done, I ate my packed, quinoa salad for lunch.
Right beside Dominos Pizza…πŸ™„ Continue reading “I’ve Got This Feeling”

An Un-decreased Desire

Monday Aug 28th –

 

 

So, this will bore those of you who could care less about what I eat/do with my time.

If you do dislike those things though, I don’t know why you would be here to begin with since that’s pretty much the only two things I write about?😜

Anyways, Monday marked 1 week of being on the 21 day fix – eating plan and workout schedule.

Now, as a slight of stature person, it gets tiring hearing people say that ‘why would YOU need to work out or watch what you eat?!’.

That in itself, almost makes a person lazy, thinking ‘yeah, why would I try to exercise?’ Though truly, no matter if you’re small or not, being ‘healthy’ should never be mocked or questioned I think? 😊

So anyways, Monday was weigh and measure day and some results were good, some less awe-inspiring but overall a difference was there and after only one week, that’s not to shabby in my opinion 😏

It has gotten easier to consume the foods allowed and not feel starving throughout the entire day, finding many ways to cut back on unhealthy ingredients and snacks, but my desire for a good, thick homemade piece of bread drenched in butter or a stroopwafel or two for breakfast… has not decreased 🀀😜

So, as I wanted THOSE items, I instead prepared some more turkey burgers for that night’s dinner 😏

 

 

I WAS going to share the recipe, since the first time we ate them we thought they were pretty tasty, not to mention a lot less fat content then ground beef.

This second time eating them though, proved…different πŸ€” Continue reading “An Un-decreased Desire”

Beauty In Many Forms

Thursday Aug 24th –

 

 

While I went to work, so did the hubster.

He got the flooring laid down in the bathroom and the vanity back in and I love it! πŸ˜„

 

 

 

Besides that, he also worked on building the base for the kitchen cupboards, with our ever helpful neighbour πŸ› 

 

 

By the time I was back from cleaning, it was already later in the afternoon, so after putting our room back to rights (as it had been claimed by the aunt and uncle for their short stayπŸ˜‰) and tidying up, it was nearly supper time.

But supper was being brought back with mother, who had joined the aunt and uncle on their shopping day in the city.

A deliciously seasoned, Costco chicken filled our plates alongside steamed broc and leftover pasta.

The portion thing with this whole ’21 (14) day fix’, isn’t that hard but what is, is so little bread and zero sweets 😩

Bread is beautiful, therefore if I gain weight from an over indulgence of bread, can I be beautiful too?πŸ˜‚

Evening brought with it a massive desire for stroopwafels and instead I looked up ‘healthy dessert’ recipes to try the next day.

(Those two words really don’t belong togetherπŸ™„)
