I'm back...

and I spent Easter week-end with my DD in her new hometown, Montreal. We had a lovely visit, didn't do a ton of stuff except hang out, visit one of my dearest friends, eat and buy books. Oh and clean and do laundry. I'm home, and ready for bed. I hope everyone had a great week-end. My batteries are recharged, and I'm ready to meet the world head on again!

I've been slacking...

Not a whole lots going on right now... Working, exercising, eating, cleaning, walking the dog...  I've been working on healing myself, and the process is slow but every day I'm getting stronger.

I'm doing an online meditation course which is doing wonders for my body and soul, speaking with care and letting things go.

Fitness wise, I've lost a whopping two pounds, but I've upped my weights from 25-35 lbs today! In 14 weeks I've gone from struggling to lift 20 lbs to struggling to lift the 35 lbs, but I can do it! I've achieved so much that I'm proud of these past few months.

For me, I'm a slow learner... I've been repeating the same patterns of behaviors for years, now I'm in a place where I see the behaviour and I'm making one baby step at a time to change it!

So my friends, that's where I'm at right now... Hope everyone has a fantastic Wednesday!

Take 3 wrap up...

1.)  Finances-
I'm on a book and clothing freeze  this month. It's also my mother's B-day and one of my sister's. I'm racking my brain for both. I'd like to pay for my mother's passport photos and see if my siblings would like to help pay for mom's passport for her birthday.  I'm planning on spending money on bills, the dog, food and gas.  Oh and some money on chalk board paint!

I bought some head bands and weight lifting gloves yesterday grand total of 24.00... I also bought some gently used books at my local library today I spent 5.00 for 8 books ( it was supposed to be 2.75, but I told her to just give me back a $5)
I didn;t get the chalk board paint nor did I spend any more money on clothes or books!

2.)   Personal-
Make plans to go out twice this month with friends.  I went out last Saturday night for drinks and I'm goign out for supper tonight with friends)
I need to eat more protein, which means planning out my meals! Not even close on this one...
Walk the dog 30 minutes a day minimum. He's put two pounds back on. We missed Thursday, the very snowy day, so we're 14/15 so far. We missed yesterday, so 29/31 for the month
Make a Dr's appointment and an optometrist  appointment. Done, both are in April

2.) House/declutter-
March 2-8 declutter and clean panrty done March 9-15 clean/declutter spare room It's started
March 16-22 - spend 15 minutes x 5 days in the basement  Nope
March 23-29- clean all the interiors of the windows and window coverings! Nope
I also want to  make my own chalk board for the kitchen, and finish cutting strips for the braid rug I've been working on for over a year... Nope
I also have books that need to be donate, so I'll pack them up and drop then off by March 14. . They're packed up, but I need to deliver them... 

I'm going to give this a B... We discussed the passport idea but nothing else happened. I made it out 4 times this month with friends. 

I like doing challenges, it keeps me motivated... Thanks again Carla

Where is spring!

Ok, so we're going to get blasted in the next 24 hours... High winds, snow,  cold, if it was summer it would be a tropical storm... I'm officially sick of winter! YUCK...

when  summer finally gets here, someone reach out and give me a virtual slap the first time I complain of the heat and humidity!

Now, I'm off to do some housework and prep for the storm... ( buying batteries) and of course work...

Today find me sick with a massive head cold/sinus infection...  I did manage to walk the dog  and got caught in a snow squall. We were hit with mini snowballs and blinding winds. Now the sun is shining and the wind is howling! I'm doing a little bit house work, between catnaps on the couch...  My mom is coming for supper later, I'm going to cook some chicken, rice, stuffing and some veggies.

I refused over time at work all weekend ( 5 shifts). I just couldn't do it... The money would have been nice, but so is sleep!

I'm still hitting the gym... I've lost 5 inches off my waist so far... and I can see some more definition where my abs are...

As far as my boarder goes, I see her back as she heads out the door in the morning,  I think she waits for me to be in my room and she bolts out the door... I'm gone to the gym by 7:30 and home just after 9. I go to work again at either 10:30 or 2:30, so she's supposed to be in school then... If I come home early from work, she's in her room with the lights out and no noise... I think she's scared or nervous of me...

 I'm tossing the dirty litter box today, as it's been in the same spot for almost two months and hasn't moved...  

I've spent a total of 10 minutes this past week cleaning the basement...
