My Last Three Days

21 Mar

My last three days have been busy, or at least they felt that way but when I look back on them I can’t figure out why they felt so busy…weird… πŸ˜›

Well ok, Tuesday wasn’t busy lol I slept in, chilled with the cat then went to dragon boat practice. After practice I made dinner, cooked a new fish dish which turned out well, when I say “well” I mean I didn’t give myself food poisoning lol It tasted fine, nothing great so I won’t be buying it again, shrug. It was healthy though, which was what I was aiming for so yay for getting that right! Although, someone out there will probably read what it was and say I am wrong *rolls eyes* Leave me with my delusions!Β lol

It was a coconut crusted piece of tilapia, there was seasoning in there too, not like it was just coconut but since it came pre-crusted/seasoned I couldn’t say for sure what those seasonings were…

I paired it with some red and yellow grilled peppers and some sliced yam, those were cooked in a pan on top of the stove with no butter/spray/oil used, I just put a small bit of water in the pan so the food didn’t stick. I was paranoid about cooking the fish, the instructions said cook for ten minutes per inch and a half of thickness, what?? That’s not cool, I want specific directions for my piece of fish, I want to be told exactly how many minutes for my fish, not have to figure it out myself cause dude, I’ll figure it out wrong! Least, that was the panicked thoughts going through my head lol Turns out it was cooked perfectly, go fig! πŸ™‚

Wednesday I spent the afternoon with my lil sis at the mall. Normally I try to get us doing something active for at least part of our time together but her birthday was this week so I let her decide every thing we did Wednesday which meant we spent the entire time in the mall. Ah well, it’s her day! πŸ™‚ We had fun, which was a given really lol I bought a new phone case for myself which I am in love with right now, every time I pick up my phone I laugh, teehee, and yes I know, I am easily amused. It is a someecards cover and looks like this…

cause I know you care what my phone case looks like lol

We had a pit stop at Tim Horton’s cause well, why wouldn’t we?? There is a new maple glazed doughnut out and all I can say to Timmy’s about that is bravo *slow clap* ya done goooooood! My other comment to them is where are all the winning cups?? It’s Roll Up The Rim game time and none of my cups have won so far! *pout*

medium steeped tea and a doughnut, classic!

In the evening I hung out with KL, we got dinner (Indian food, Mmm!), then saw the movie 12 Years A Slave and holy crap was it amazing! Brutal. But amazing. So no exercise for me at all on Wednesday, and lots of food, which is sorta reversed to how it is supposed to be but alas, Wednesday was two days ago so there’s nuthin I can do about it now! lol πŸ˜›


Every time this commercial comes on tv I stop and watch. I love it, well, right up until it gets to the part about advertising for Centrum Science Multi-Vitamins cause I’m not on that whole vitamin bandwagon but I find the commercial inspiring (to a point). All those people, of various ages and backgrounds taking part in a wide variety of physical activities, leading healthy lifestyles, I dunno, something about it makes me want to do more. Try a new sport, or go back to one I used to do and stopped *cough*boxing*cough*


I had a relaxing morning, went to an audition early afternoon, then dragon boat practice at night then out for dinner later that night. Thursday was a good day. πŸ™‚

The audition went great, I got amazing feedback from the casting director so wOOt! wOOt! I can’t tell anything about the project or specifics about the auditions cause I signed a non-disclosure agreement but if it turns in to anything rest assured I’ll be linking it to my blog so you can all pretend to watch it lol πŸ˜‰

At practice we got informed that us girls have to train twice as hard as the guys and that we (this time I mean everyone, not just the girls) are supposed to be eating healthy (duh!) and we aren’t supposed to drink alcohol…um, what? Not like I drink a lot or anything but…none? At all? Hmm…this woman really doesn’t know us lol

Her strictness with things did help curb my appetite today though, which I suppose is good, any little bit helps right? I had dinner at work but only cause it was a fish steak with veggies, there were other things with it (mashed potatoes, spring rolls, apple pie etc) but I didn’t eat those. Didn’t even snag a cookie for dessert!

Oh and lastly! A friend of mine who is a trainer informed me that a respectable time to complete my BMO Run is 45 minutes…I’m going to die…my training is pretty much non-existent, which is not good, I’ve gotta start kicking my own ass in to gear when it comes to running, ugh. Whyyyyyy did I sign up for this? Stupid-wanting-a-new-challenge-feeling *rolls eyes* πŸ˜›

What a Weekend! :)

11 Apr

Some weekends just rock – and the one that just finished was one of them. πŸ™‚ While I am a little sad the weekend is over (I mean, does anyone really like Mondays??) it was so fun that I am just happy having an awesome two days to look back on…weird huh? lol.

Saturday started off with me standing on the scale – I was kinda worried (as normal!) cause the day before I had eaten Beef Teriyaki and some sushi rolls and some miso soup for lunch and then compounded it by eating (you’re gonna love this!) a donut for dinner…yup, a donut, oh! and I had an Iced Cappuchino from Tim Horton’s with it (medium not small! ack! – least I got it made with milk not cream…)Β I don’t know what got in to me, shrug. So I step on the scale thinking I was bound to gain weight anyways since it was my first full week back to normal eating and how dumb was I on Friday but hey, the number went down! πŸ˜€ I lost another 0.8lbs, and what made it even better was I wasn’t regretting the donut, iced capp or Japanese lunch, there were no thoughts about how much more I would have lost if I hadn’t eaten those things, I was just so shocked at having lost weight this week that after a moment of stunned awe I went directly to giddy. πŸ˜€ I love when that happens!

After the scale I went for a hike, came home, got clean, ate a healthy meal, chilled for a while, then the fun part of the day! I met up with KL and we went to see Riverdance. πŸ˜€ Don’t you dare laugh! I love that show! You try bending your leg that way and dancing that quickly with such precision and then see if you think it’s still ok to make fun of them. πŸ˜› It was really good – I had seen it before but KL hadn’t and she really liked it, which, phew! since I was the one who convinced her to go! lol. We then went for a late dinner at an Indian place I can no longer remember the name of, oops. πŸ˜‰ It was way good. I don’t eat Indian often (read that as practically never) so I had no idea what to order. We ended up with shared rice that was filled with veggies and some spices, a vegetarian dish with chick peas, peas, tofu (it was Paneer something or other), a chicken dish withΒ coconut and a lotta spices. Oh, and two kinds of Naan bread (yum!) one was spinach and cheese the other was coconut, raisin and some kind of nut. The one with the raisins was actually sweet, like there was honey or something in it, more a dessert naan but holy crap yum! Everything was quite tasty. πŸ˜€

The only negative to the dinner was we ate around 10:30pm so I was still quite full by the time I got to bed at 1am, oops again! lol

Sunday I went for lunch to the Old Spaghetti Factory with MS and K…(holy crap, I forgot her last name, aaaaahhhhh!), oh well, I guess she’s just gonna be K hehe. So, lunch with those two, got to see MS’s new apartment (way nice!) and give her belated bday presents and holy-shit-you-got-knocked-up-presents – she loved all the prezzies. πŸ™‚ We had such a good time, none of us had seen each other in a while so it was a major catch up day; always fun. They were both stunned (in a good way) and what I look like cause they haven’t seen me since oh, last summer I s’pose – losing 31.8lbs makes a difference! πŸ˜€

After that it was a normal day, did some errands, came home, did stuff around the apartment – nothing exciting but that’s ok cause by that time I was now digesting two meals (the Indian and the pasta from OSF) and was certain I should never eat again. lol. Way yummy tho!

I will hafta be careful the rest of the week, since I am sure I used a lot of flex points during those two days – I haven’t a clue about the Indian food and the OSF I know I have calculated before so I can find that info but I remember the numbers being high, *rolls eyes* all the good stuff is high in points! Least I got them to only serve me half and I brought the rest home…which I ate for dinner tonight along with a spinach salad and dinner bun. shrug. Hey, come on, not like I am gonna waste the left overs! I figure, better to eat them and get them outta here then let them linger and then throw them out and be pissed cause I wasted money – hey, the logic works!

I didn’t write down my food today so let’s see if I can remember:

1 apple = 1 point

1 pear = 1 point

1 banana = 1 point

1 Activia yogurt = 2 points

1/2 serving Pesto Linguine from OSF = 7 points

2 dinner buns = 2 points

2 tsp margarine = 2 points

baby spinach, mushroom = 0 points

1 babybell (cubed) = 1 point

tofu = 0.5 points

1 tbls light ranch = 0 point

Reese peanut butter egg = 4 points

Total Points Eaten = 21.5 Points

Lesson learned from this day? Calculate the points before eating the Reese peanut butter and chocolate egg and you just may save yourself from going over, *rolls eyes*, lol, ah well, that egg was a-frickin-mazing, totally worth the 4 points, Mmm!Mmm!Mmm! I just may have to buy another one before they go off the shelves.

Really, not too bad points wise, I thought it would be worse cause of the pasta but half a serving is 7 points, totally doable! πŸ˜€ The meal yesterday was worse the just the 7 points cause I also had the free bread and free ice cream and a salad with dressing on the side but hey, it’s not yesterday, it’s today and there’s no point in dwelling in the past. lol. πŸ˜›
