Have you ever felt this way? I'm so there right now.

Our house in FSJ finally sold, so I'm feeling good about that. July 10 is when the new owner takes over, and we're free and clear. It'll feel nice, for sure. Then we can get on with things.

But, I still feel lost. John and I are eating whatever we want, and not exercising nearly enough. But, I don't know where to begin.

We're going on vacation this weekend (for a week) so I don't feel like starting an exercise routine because it'll just get pushed aside while we're gone. But I need to work on a plan of attack for when we do come home. The bow flex and tread climber need to get used! No ifs, ands, or buts about it! But how do I begin? I'll need to do some planning while we're away - hopefully I'll have free time for that.

John and I decided that we're going to go to Vegas in September, so I need to look good! That gives me 2 months to kick ass - then forever :)

Quick Photo Share

Just a quick post this morning. I just uploaded some photos from the wedding we went to on my birthday, so I thought I would share.

The view from our room at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort - definitely want to go back and explore more there! (When it's not raining cats and dogs)

Wedding info - yes, that does say Thompson and Tomson!

Cute niece #1 - Tyhlar

A great wedding, even though it was very rainy and cold!

Back from Vacation

I'm back from a quick vacation - and I do mean quick! 6 days, 3000 kilometres. Yep, long, long days for driving. 6 hours the first night to Grande Prairie, 7 the next day to Golden, 1-ish the next day to Fairmont Hot Springs (shortest day in the whole vacation!), 5 the next day to Jasper, 3 the next day back to Grande Prairie, and finally another 6 back home the next day. We left around 2pm on Thursday, and got home at 6 last night. Ridiculous. But awesome too.

The reason we went so far was to get to a wedding in Fairmont. Great wedding, even with the rain! It was supposed to be an outside ceremony, but the weather was horrible. So they put up a tent, and it was chilly, but good. Then the reception in the ski lodge. It was actually pretty nice. I got to see some friends from high school, and make a few new ones as well. It's just too bad we were so tired from all of the travelling.

Then there was Jasper. Hubby got a bunch of my friends to meet up for my birthday - so awesome! My last few birthdays have been pretty lame, so it was really nice. Having some drinks and food and hanging out with friends in one of my most favourite places - priceless! Made turning 26 ok!

But now we're home, and I need to get back to weight loss. I am saying this as I eat chocolate covered pretzels from Jasper, but oh well. I'm working on a plan - I'll let you in on it later!

Back to work!

I want to lose...

...5 pounds in June. Is it doable? YES!

This morning I had a super crappy weigh in. 205.5 pounds. Yikes! I'm letting myself slip badly! I need to stop it!

There are 30 weeks left in the year. Well, 31 maybe. Sometimes I get confused when I count.

So, 30 weigh ins. I want to be around 160 pounds by the end of the year. Even if I average a pound a week with a few good weeks in between, I can do it.

I just need to get off of my ass.

Sigh. I didn't realize how much I enjoyed winter - only due to the fact that I get to hide behind sweaters. Now that I'm wearing t-shirts and tank tops, I can't hide. It sucks! I almost want winter again, except I don't want to be stuck inside all of the time. Now might be the time to get serious!!

Ok. Time to work. It's so damn slow though! I wanna go home!
